  1. What most people don't realize is the Mayan calendar is ... cyclical! When you get to the end, you go back to the beginning. So when the Mayan long-count & galactic day calendars coincide to "end" on Dec 21 2012, it's like New Year's Eve for the next 5126 years. (So we should throw one heck of a party, yes? ) Thalia, just to clarify: The Mayan calendar didn't have to take into account leap years. It's actually more specific than the Gregorian calendar (that most of the world uses) which has to have leap years. So saying the Mayan calendar was "wrong" because it didn't have leap years is incorrect. It was the people doing the math to calculate the end of the long-count cycle who didn't take into account leap years & the adjustments made to our calendar cycle over time. Of course, there's also the thought that the original start date of the cycle could have been mis-interpreted, and we may have already passed the into the new cycle ... as much as a decade or possibly even a century ago. Or that it's actually next year or two years away from now. *shrug* At any rate, I'm sure enough that the world isn't ending just because I have to buy a new calendar. I do that every year anyway. (Now, world ending because some idiot decides it'd be a grand idea to declare nuclear war - I can see that happening anytime.)
  2. It's been known to happen from time to time. Usually editing your post to remove the Spoiler title will take care of it until the issue is resolved. I always just use the Spoiler button rather than coding (because I'm lazy & it's easy & that's why there's a button for it). And btw, welcome back Dude!

    Yes. The path is long but filled with deliciousness ... I will totally kung-fu cows for their tasty beefness. Ahem. Anyhow, moving on. In preparation for my upcoming "business" trip - What happens in ... (& btw, saying 'Vegas stays in Vegas' DOES NOT COUNT! )
  4. (Cubie, it's at the bottom of every page, on the Contact page, & on the Sitemap page. It isn't, however, overtly prominent.) I remember there being a "recent brain teasers" feed (or something like that) where new logic/math puzzles & riddles from the Forum showed up. I think it was a good way to get people interested in the forums as well. Looks good rookie! I like. Pretty clean design & easy navigation.

    Use caution when travelling the rural areas of China, because in China, all cows know kung-fu and can tell when you're thinking about steak!

    Last year, Japanese scientists ... erm, well ... Last month, Japanese scientists started electrocuting you (& your food) - but just a wee bit! Last week, Japanese scientisits decided to combine the two & amp up the voltage so you wouldn't realize you were eating poo - or that you have a new hairdo! (Let me wipe that drool up for you.)

    I don't know what I'll find at the end of this. Oh look, it was period. Now I don't know what I'll find at the end of this-apparently a dash. Huh. Now to try & get tricky ... What will I find at the end of this? (Drat, should've seen that one coming.)

    Life is a journey through my ex(is)tensive years. Of gaining wisdom: I have finally come to realize the answer to everything, eloquently stated as follows - It is what it is, & it ain't what it ain't, 'cept when it is what it ain't, & that's that. (& also 42)
  22. Hello Haiming! Lots of fun & interesting things to do, see, play, eat, talk about ... (No, wait. Nevermind the eating.) Take a good look around & stay a while. Welcome to the Den!
