Well we made it.  Why everyone thought that the Mayans, a people too dumb to mix Tin with Copper to make Bronze and thus better tools, could think up a calendar that would predict the end of the world is beyond me.  Truth is if they had been smart enough to use bronze for the carving tool that they used to produce the calendar, the tool would not have worn out before they could lay out the next millenium.

I, of course, never believed in the prophesy.  But what are we going to do with all those smoked mussels, crackers, pasta sauces and bottles of water?
