The problem is that nutjobs don't have any patience these days. They keep predicting that the apocalypse will happen next year just to look cool. The successful nutjobs, like Nostradamus and the Mayans, put the apocalypse way longer into the future.

Pretty sure the Mayans just ran out of space on the rock... or they guy making it died... or they did it to fuck with people in the future, I dunno, I doubt it was a prediction.

The Mayans never predicted that the world would end. Look it up, you have the internet.

Predicting the apocalypse isn't about success. There is no point in that anyway, your fame would last as long as a virgin within 2 parsecs of Warhead's precence. You also shouldn't make predicting the apocalypse your main thing, because that makes you look like a tryhard. Nostradamus predicted other events, and the Mayans wore weird hats.

Then again, the Mayans didn't predict anything at all, and Nostradamus was probably just really bad at love letters.

What I mean by "successful" is that people actually believed they predicted the apocalypse (whether they did or not), and for a long time too. Thereby making the nutjobs themselves historically famous. Some nutjob today who says the apocalypse will happen next month will never be remembered 500 years from now.

Eh, it was more a case of people seeing 'meaning' into it. As with all tinfoil hat BS.

Actually, the real funny part is that the Myan calendar did not have leap years, and thus ran out back in 1962.
