7. Well, gotta admit it has a bit more entertainment value and cultural color than Y2K.

9. I think scholars know that's actually an Aztec calendar

And not Mayan at all. Moreover, the Aztecs had a cyclical view of time, not linear. So, from what I know, that meant time didn't end, unless the sun fell from the sky and brought about the nd of the world.

Cortez appeared in Mexico on 1 Reed, supposedly the same year Quetzalcoatl had fled long before. So the years repeat rather than ending.
