16. Bring back and post a photo thread please!

We snuck into the Sound and Light show one night to watch it from the top of the Castillo. The sound was too garbled from the many echoes up there (an interesting discovery) so we moved to below a tree of to the side. Suddenly the lights came on and we were sitting in the show. We froze, of course. When the lights went out and everyone focused elsewhere, we moved again. The next morning the guard caught me doing sunrise photos of the Castillo in the ground fog and told me to leave. The second time he was mad and i really had to leave. Mexico is so cool, and people like guards can be too.

17. That's awesome!

Do you know if they allow climbing any of the sites? I thought the pyramids were closed off since a few years ago.

24. I know that they did close the steps at

Chechen Itza a few years ago and they are closed still. They really are not safe to climb and were crumbling the last time I climbed them about 5 yrs ago. Too bad! The view from the top was amazing.

(Aztek is an adaptation of the Mayan calendar.)

11. The cartoonists don't consult archaeologists first. Aztec sun stone is a world apart from Maya.

While there were a lot of cultural calendars in Mesoamerica, they share a root origin and have near the same period endings. But the Aztec Calendar stone belongs in Mexico City, not at Chichen Itza in the Yucatan.

7. I don't know if you ever heard about

Walpurgisnacht. It is the last day of April and in Germany it is known as the night when the witches meet the devil at Blocksberg (a mountain in Germany). This year in Walpurgisnacht I had a funny experience (no, I do not consider me a witch).
My hubby and I stayed at a hotel in Hof, a small town in Germany that is usually considered as "right in the middle of nowhere" - or perhaps the gateway to netherworld. Checking in, we saw a chart: "We welcome the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". Mind you: in Europe there are only few Mormons despite the efforts of Mr. Romney. In the restaurant of the hotel we met some of them. Elderly people in neat dresses speaking French, Italian and other languages. Then came in some guys who did not fit in: jeans and leather jackets, beards, long hair, and tattoos all over. Next morning we saw their motorbikes - The Hell's Angels.

The latter day saints meet the Hell's Angels? In Germany? At Walpurgisnacht? In the middle of nowhere?

I'm afraid this cannot be a mere coincidence.

8. You know what is hysterical of those toons?

The stone in there is the Aztec calendar, also known as the sun stone. One of the best known pieces in the Archeology Museum in Mexico City. It was produced about 700 years after the Maya Calendar in question.

That in itself is a joke inside a joke.

The sun stone does not contain the Bakums of the long count.

12. Yes, I "laughed" at that too. Not very discerning and indicative of conquest mentality

We really don't know much about the Native Peoples except that they are segregated on their reservations still, less still about Native Americans south of the border, and few care much at all about this unreconciled situation.

13. USA.gov: Scary Rumors about the World Ending in 2012 Are Just Rumors

Scary Rumors about the World Ending in 2012 Are Just Rumors
http://blog.usa.gov/post/37121041300/scary-rumors-about-the-world-ending-in-2012-are-just

False rumors about the end of the world in 2012 have been commonplace on the Internet for some time. Many of these rumors involve the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 (it won’t), a comet causing catastrophic effects (definitely not), a hidden planet sneaking up and colliding with us (no and no), and many others.

The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012.

Unfortunately, these rumors have many people frightened, especially children. NASA has received thousands of letters concerned about the end of the world. David Morrison, a planetary astronomer and senior scientist for NASA who answers questions from the public about astrobiology, says, “At least a once a week I get a message from a young person ― as young as 11 ― who says they are ill and/or contemplating suicide because of the coming doomsday.”

According to NASA, the old mystery-planet-collision rumor year was 2003, but when 2004 arrived safely, the rumors changed to 2012. So what end-of-the-world year will the rumor mill make up next?

Videos from NASA debunking end-of-the-world rumors:
