I am watching the news…. Nothing happening so far.
Nothing news-breaking has been announced yet and at this moment, it's already 29th December, 2012 in Europe. But let's review the OP:
We have a fragment of a stone carved by the Northern Mayans that comes from the first half of the 16th century. The carving points toward 184.108.40.206.7
in the Long Count, which equals December 28, 2012 in Gregorian. According to the superstition, would that day be unlucky (13) or lucky (7)?
The day must be unlucky, because December 28, 2012 falls on Friday and we know what "Friday, the 13th" means. That also means the stone had to be
carved after 1542 when pope Gregory XIII (The Unlucky) decided to phase off the Julian calendar, and that the Mayans tested our ability to make a
choice between Unlucky Day and Lucky Day. We didn't flunk the test.
The fragment of the stone spoke of some curse that will come into effect on December 28, 2012. But since the stone was broken, with good part of it
missing, the curse could be broken as well, or materialize in some lesser degree. Since the Spaniards were stealing Mayan relics made of gold, the
curse could refer to the finances of modern Spain. In order to search for the possible event, you need to convert the date 220.127.116.11.7 into a practical
format. What format? Like this one
, for example:
MADRID: Spain's bailed-out lender Bankia plunged on the stock market Thursday after banking authorities said it had a negative of value of 4.148
billion euros ($5.5 billion).
Shares in Bankia, which is at the heart of a crisis in the bad-loan ridden Spanish banking system, slumped 13.7 percent to 59.2 cents in
But the news is dated December 27, 2012, just one day shy of the actual date. Nevertheless, the Mayans would surely rejoice knowing that all that
stolen gold is too little to fend off the finacial crises in "the bad-loan ridden Spanish banking system." Perhaps they cast other spells on the
Spanish invaders that were not found yet, but came true given the state of finances in today's Spain.
Mayans were "American Indians" and the conquest of their land wasn't pretty, as expected. Lots of looting and raping was going on. And so the only
news that major media came up with on December 28, 2012 - news tagged "Indians/violence" was this:
SINGAPORE — A 23-year-old Indian woman who was gang-raped and severely beaten on a bus in New Delhi died Saturday at a Singapore hospital, after her
horrific ordeal galvanized Indians to demand greater protection from sexual violence that impacts thousands of women daily, but often goes
But again, the victim died on Saturday and not on Friday. So, the bad spell cast by the Nothern Mayans that should take effect on December 28, 2012
didn't find its way through. The stone was fragmented too much, I guess and that discombobulated the spell:
Norman Schwarzkopf helped to eject the Iraqi invaders from Kuwait, not the other way! That means the bad spell was flying around the world in its
