Buh bye!

Yeah, I know we have Mayan Apocalypse threads comin' out of our asses lately, but none to just kiss our own and each other asses goodbye.

"So long, farewell, auf weedersame, goodbye..."

If there's a Mayan Hell, I got dibs on the hot tub!

And we will all go together when we go.
What a comforting fact that is to know.
Universal bereavement,
An inspiring achievement,
Yes, we all will go together when we go.

Well, if something is coming to destroy the Earth, it must be coming so fast that we can't see it coming. Which means the Earth will just be a smoke ring in space.

I was also kind of wondering what a "weedersame" is.
If chocolate melts in hell, I'm bringing an icepack.

Wave after wave, each mightier than the last,
Till last, a ninth one, gathering half the deep
And full of voices, slowly rose and plunged
Roaring, and all the wave was in a flame

Just in case the world ends tomorrow I'm going to spend the day listening to these versions of the same tune, written by Lyle Mays, that serves to indicate that human beings have done at least one good thing in their time here.

Smart 'dopers should find some way to invest in the boom in shopping starting Saturday when all the Mayans realize they are totally behind on their Christmas shopping. ---> profit!

Glad I could help.

I suggest investing in a calendar maker. Every single Mayan will need at least one.

I thought Xibalba was that guy from Star Wars. No, wait. That's Sebulba.

Coincidence? I think not!

Well, it's not quite the conflagration I'd been banking on.

Never mind, lads, same time tomorrow... we must get a winner one day.

Man, I spent all week modifying a chainsaw to be able to cut through human flesh and bone, then nothing happens! No army of zombies, no giant with a burning sword, no ship made of dead men's nails, NOTHING! And the fact I'm in New England right now and it's above freezing means that it can't be the start of endless winter. Oh well, at least my End of the World Super Orgy went well.

You have it the worst. Now, because of the fuckin' lyin' Mayans, you have a sink full of dishes to you. Had I the power to destroy the world to spare you this labor, I would do it.
