      LOL Yeah I agree! I guess I'm just on west coast time, but it's still cool, I agree!

          It's 12:48 now so I guess we all survived the horror of all those 9s. I guess that means I still have to pay my mortgage.

                      Unfortunately, this is as far as the Mayan calender goes.

                        Not so fast Casper...

                        Ya know tha' term Zip, right???

                        Tha Mayans along w/ Tha' Egyptians had a most excellent solar calender....
                        They used Base 20 so they naturally divided up thar' year in 18 months of 20 days each, totali'in 360 days..A special period of five days at tha end, called Uayeb, brought tha count ta' 365.

                        Unlike tha' Egyptians, though, the Mayans had a Zero in thar' count'in system, so they did tha rught and obvious thang: They started numbering days with tha' number zero. Tha first day of tha' month of Zip, for example, was usually called tha' "installation" or "seat'in' of Zip.

                        tha' next day was 1 Zip, tha' follow'in day 2 Zip and so on ta' they reached 19 Zip.

                        Tha Next day was tha "seat'in" of Zota

                        This Mayan Calender was wounderfully complicated.., they also had a ritual calender that had 20 weeks, each hav'in 13 days...combined with thier solar year, this created a calender round that had a different name fer every day in a 52 day cycle...

                        The Myans were well aware of tha' number Zero, Unlike Tha Romans and Egyptians....

                        This had far reach'in implications... from tha' church to empires, most of it bloody....

                        Have a wonderfull day...

                          That must be why there are zero Mayans around these days.
