If you’re reading this, the world didn’t end on Dec. 21, 2012, the date of the prophesied Mayan apocalypse. Nice one! But let’s not start cheesing our victory nachos just yet.
First off, according to an alternate translation of the Mayan Long Count Calendar — which supposedly stops abruptly sometime this year, most likely because when the Mayans developed their Long Count calendar 5000 years ago, they figured 5000 years was probably long enough — the end actually comes on Dec. 23. That’s today. Just FYI.
