  • We hope doomsday citizens can return their bunkers: a new Mayan calendar has found (below) and it goes way beyond the epic December 21, 2012 date when allegedly the world will end because the ultra-precise Mayan Calendar ends on that date. Well, in Northern Guatemala, archaeologist William Saturno, discovered a new calandar that projects dates thousands of years into the past and future, eroding the belief that we could imply worldwide destruction from the abrupt end of the previous calendar.

    What do you think? Still going to buy a bunker?
