The whole mayan end of the world crap has always pissed me off. They never implied any such thing. So the calendar runs out. So what? As I understand it, they created new calendars for every "age," and this one just happened to run out. Dumb christians are the ones who always interpret everything as the rapture or some such nonsense. I'm getting so tired of the number of rapture/end-of-world dates I've lived through. Wish they'd get a clue and drop the stupidity. Actually, if there's to be a real end of the world, it'll probably be because end-of-the-worlders destroy our planet through ignorance and "lame duck" attitudes.
