2012 is almost over, and no end of the world yet. Makin' progress. Davidy22(talk) 02:08, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

We have until Winter Solstice, it seems, whereupon we face a calamity the likes of which haven't been seen since Y2K. -- IronyChef (talk) 06:33, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

I haven't been this disappointed by the apocalypse since Y2K. Not even worth a rental. 03:51, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Upgraded to past tense. Alpha (talk) 20:32, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

The Mayan did not predict the end of the world, they just would have to use a new calendar.--Dgbrt (talk) 19:56, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

That's what the explanation says... why the incomplete/incorrect tag? 10:11, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
I think it's the "numerous other faulty predictions" line in the third paragraph. That said, it's not the Mayans who predicted the end of the world, but those who failed to learn from history. Anonymous 01:46, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

I take 4 AP courses this year. AP courses have a bonus point to GPA; for example, an A in an AP course translates to a GPA of 5. I also take a non-AP English course. I am certain that I will get straight-A's in the AP courses, so I can fail the English class and still get a 4.0 GPA, which means straight-A's across the board. --Troy0 (talk) 13:16, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

It would certainly have been the end of the world for those who died or committed suicide on that day. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Except for those who did so on Ilkley Moor (unless it was involuntarily. (Or related in some way to the comic.))

Plans to advertise Mayan culture after the year indicate that journalism is a major cause of Fail. Discuss. I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk) 06:36, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Just had a 'Duh' moment, and I don't know why no-one else has noticed this, but not only does 354 days only get you to December 20, that's in non-leap years. 2012 was a leap year. Hence, the number of days should be 356. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Please do not forget to sign your comments. And your 'Duh' moment is wrong. The comic was released on January 2. Just check the new trivia section. --Dgbrt (talk) 19:25, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Can we start talking about Mayans again? As mentioned, they're still around in the millions, and languages like Yucatec Maya have ~800,000 speakers, and plenty of resources. The Mayan languages are super cool grammatically. Yucatec Mayan has no tense whatsoever, nor does it have any words like next, after, before, etc. It handles telling the listener about the order and time of events in a completely unique way. 15:38, 15 October 2022 (UTC)
