We're still here.....

We're still here....

If you are reading this blog, the Mayans were wrong. Or, at least, the Maya interpreters were. The world did not end on December 21.

Apparently the Russians were on the edge of their seats over the whole end of the world, Mayan calendar thing. According to an article in the New York Times on December 1, reports were coming in from all over Russia about aberrant behavior linked closely to the Mayan calendar: "Inmates in a women's prison near the Chinese border" were experiencing "collective mass psychosis," wrote Ellen Barry from her journalistic perch in Moscow. "In a factory town east of Moscow, panicked citizens stripped shelves of matches, kerosene, sugar and candles." and "a huge Mayan-style archway" was being built on Karl Marx Street in the city of Chelyabinsk. I'm really not sure why you'd need any special supplies if the world were about to end - though it is never a bad time to stock up on duct tape!
