I've never played Majora's Mask. I would get it, but I don't have an N64 and my Wii doesn't work with VC. If my Wii U arrives, maybe I'll finally try it on VC :3

Does seriously nobody wonder if the Mayans just decided to not make more calendars simply because they got tired of making them? Sorry, but I'm not leaving it to a now extinct civilization that worshiped the stars and performed child sacrifices to correctly predict an event that would happen thousands of years ahead of their time.

The Mayans actually had more calendars, that go on much, much longer.

The particular one that that people are referencing (for the supposed "end of the world"), is simply covering a unit of time called a baktun (much like our centuries or a millennium. probably spelled that wrong, BTW), that is ending on the 21st, after which a new baktun will begin in their calendar.

People on the internet completely misinterpreted it (a baktun is apparently pretty long, covering thousands of years), and thought it was some sort of doomsday prophecy (the Mayans themselves didn't even mention anything about doomsday. They believed something important was supposed to happen on that date, but there's nothing to support the theory that they believed it was doomsday).

Maybe they were predicting the day when Half Life 3 will be announced

For me, it's just amusement. I don't see why there's any more likely chance the world will end this time, and honestly just assumed the Mayans didn't make the calendar that far because, well, it's so far into the future they weren't concerned yet. No matter the reason, though, it's not like the Mayans were superhuman or anything, they couldn't tell the future any more than me or you.

In fact, I wonder if anyone seriously thinks the world is going to end Friday, I assumed most people are just playing along like me. O.o

Is anyone, though? Doesn't seem that way to me.

This.

I see lots of people asking questions like this. No sane and rational person is taking this seriously, but it is fun to joke and tease about. It's like a worldwide joke and a bunch of people just don't get it (funny or not).
50% of the people are like OH NOES END OF WORLD!!!!11!1!!1one ::wink wink nudge nudge::
49.333333333 (repeating of course) people are like YOU CAN'T SERIOUSLY BELIEVE THAT CAN YOU!!!?!?!?!?!?!
the rest are making their suicide pacts

That might still work for you. You just have to open up your scale a bit.

Have you guys been taking advantage of the DRM-Free End of the World sales event going on at GOG?

Games like Witcher 2, Sam & Max, Faster Than Light, Legend of Grimrock, Stacking, Machinarium, Unmechanical, Puddle, Quest for Glory, La Mulana, Mutant Mudds, Deus Ex, and Alan Wake are all on sale--but this is your last chance to buy them...ever!

MayanGreg: "Something up?"
MayanBob: "This job MayanBoss gave me. Writing out a huge calendar just so he can keep track of all our holidays."
MayanGreg: "I hear ya. All this grunt work is probably why nobody has invented the printing press yet."
MayanBob: "I know, right? I could be doing something useful with my time. But no. 17th December. 18th December. 19th December. Just goes on and on. My hand is killing me"
MayanGreg: "How far does he want you to go to?"
MayanBob: "I dunno. He said 2010, but you know what he's like. He'll just get me to write more dates next week. Figure I might as well get the inevitable out of the way."
MayanGreg: "Eh. You shouldn't bother. He'll come to expect more than he's asked for."
MayanBob: "Maybe, but I really couldn't be bothered doing this again."
MayanGreg: "Just put the pen down. Come on. Work's over. We're going for a pint."
MayanBob: "What, just leave it at the 21st? Shouldn't I at least finish the year off?"
MayanGreg: "No. We're going for a pint. Seriously, it's not like anyone is ever going to care."

Apparently my friends parents actually believe in this.
She said she's been told not to go to school on the 21st, also apparently her parents reviewed what to do when "the meteor hits the earth"
The saddest part is, I don't think she was kidding about her parents prepping for the apocalypse. O_O
