Tens of thousands of mystics, hippies and tourists celebrated in the shadow of ancient Maya pyramids in southeastern Mexico on Friday as the Earth survived a day billed by doomsday theorists as the end of the world.
New Age dreamers, alternative lifestyle gurus and curious onlookers from around the world descended on the ruins of Maya cities to mark the close of the 13th bak’tun – a period of around 400 years – in the Maya Long Calendar.
Raise your hand if you thought the Mayans had even the slightest chance of being right about the end of the world? Yeah, I didn’t think so. People should make up some more sh$t so we have more things to celebrate. I love how it’s mystics, hippies, and tourists as well. Clearly, the intelligence of the planet.
