Are We at the End of Days? This Mayan Says…

Did the Mayans know something we don’t? Does their calendar predict our eminent doom?

We had no idea where these ideas came from and, being lovers of this kind of stuff, set out on a quest for the truth.

We even went as far as traveling to the ancient and mysterious ruins at Tulum in Mexico to ask a REAL Mayan (with a great sense of humor!) what the official scoop is. Here’s what we found:
