Mayans: Chill out, world not ending anytime soon

Sorry, Internet prognosticators, but the world isn’t ending in 2012. At least, it’s not going to end this year because of some crazy Mayan prediction. Archaeologists at the Mayan site of Xultún (in modern day Guatemala) have discovered a 2,000-year-old calendar on the wall of a scribe’s house. According to National Geographic, the calendar includes dates about 7,000 years into the future. That means the world will actually end some time around 9012, so ha!
