Mayans Scramble to finish new 5,125 year calendar.

With only hours to go to the end of the world Mayan sages are rapidly finishing the new long calendar taking us into the 72nd century. "We are working on the last few decades, so we are pretty optimistic that we will be finished before midnight." Said Alehanrdo Cortez Mayan spokesman. "We go this every time the long calendar ends...its always scramble as we Mayans have always been known to be big procrastinators. But fear not, We'll git'er done." Said Mr. Cortez.

When asked about the mechanism behind the apocalypse he replied, "Well its never really been a apocalypse per se but more of an awakening. And we are pretty sure that the awakening has already occurred and that it was sometime during the last year. I think it was when phone companies dropped calling plans and went with more unlimited calling and removed the unlimited data plans. Others say it is the continued success of Apple after the death of Steve Jobs, I don't know, basically nobody really knows."

3. I had always heard ...

as the spokesman sadi, that the end of the calendar did not the end of the world; but an awakening ... the "birth of a new understanding."

Tell me ... what gave birth last year, whose ripple was evident in the past election, and produced things like the grassroots debt retirement movement (sorry, I can't recall its proper name), and continues to gain strength?
