The World Will End On May 21

There was a Christian group downtown telling everyone the world will end on May 21, 2011. Like any Christian group, they wanted money. I offered them a post dated cheque, dated May 22 and they said they would take it. I didn't give it to them but I walked away reassured.

Everyone knows the World will not end until the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar on December 21, 2012.


  1. LOL!!! great idea on the post dated cheque!

    Thanks for the laugh tonight!

  2. Hey Croft, for the sake of your research we just received a letter from Blue Cross (low cost U.S. health insurance) today. They are raising rates 20% which makes our cost $17,000 (U.S.dollars) a year for my wife and I.
    We are in perfect health and maybe have one check up per year which they don't pay since there is a $2500 deductible. After the deductible is reached they will pay only 80% of all expenses.
    Thought you might like to know while driving back to Canada smiling.

  3. It's good we only need health care til May 11.

  4. "Everyone knows the World will not end until the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar on December 21, 2011."

    I think you mis-typed; that should be December 21, 2012 and not quite everyone believes that the world will end then.

    “…when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. In our Western society, every year 31 December is followed, not by the End of the World, but by 1 January. So in the Mayan calendar will be followed by – or good-ol’ 22 December 2012, with only a few shopping days left to Christmas.” – Excerpt from Dr Karl’s “Great Moments in Science“.

  5. Thanks for the correction on the date Ed. I fixed it. Of course you are right but just watch the excitement that will form as we approach December 2012!

  6. I am still laughing over Y2K ;-)
