The Mayans predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012. They also were pagan which is absolutely no problem for the USA, as we love football. Their currency was chocolate like Willy Wonka Bars and they believed in human sacrifice. But their calendar is based on astrological events and has been pretty accurate as far as astronomical events.
So are we to believe that the Mayans could predict the end of the world but not their own extinction long before their calendar ran out? What would be the purpose in civilized culture that understood astronomy but failed to conclude it would only be practical to keep a calendar for their existence. I find it one of the world's greatest gifts this Mayan Calendars but many many civilizations are running on different Calendars that are here and among us. There is an argument about when it is.

Lost in The Event
So I am watching the show "The Event" because John Ritter's son Jason is on it and I recognize how much John Ritter and Jason Ritter contributed to the entertainment industry. And the writing all season has been well weak. The plot line inplausible and the scripted well I have fallen a sleep many an evening. I can't help watch that show and think of the show "Lost" which also lacked writers, plausibility and a whole lot more. And I am wondering if in "The Event" the actors are improvisizing without a script? I am wondering if this is yet another social experiment on the viewing television public and then I wondering why I am paying a big cable bill?

Lost was a social experiment in which the writers were the online community. I have a very bad feeling that my support of The Event might also be another social experiment. I liked they mentioned Tibet on The Event but this show is being written for countries outside the USA. It has a very weak opinion of Americans in general. As if the Mayans are returning?
I wouldn't mind the chocolate though.
