    I'm guessing that the anthropologists or whatever experts that cracked the calendar accounted for leap year.

    Wouldn't somebody have figured out something was up when we were having blizzards in June?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Mind Blowing

    Seeing this pop up on Facebook a lot. Don't you guys think anthropology experts who deciphered the Mayan calendar would take that into account?

    Mayan Calendar Accuracy

    The accepted definition of a solar tropical year is approximately 365.2422 days.

    The Gregorian Calendar year has an average length of approximately 365.2425 days. The Gregorian calculation for a year is ((400 * 365) + 100 - 3 = 146,097) / 400 = 365.2425

    The Mayan Calendar year comparison has an average length of approximately 365.2420 days. The Mayan calculation for a solar year is divided by 5,124 year periods which give the calendar the increased accuracy.
    Not only does it account for it, it does it slightly more accurately than our calendar system does.

    Re: Mind Blowing

    Maybe Chris Babb not making the Big 12 All Defensive team is a paranormal activity and is a sign towards the end of the world.. No? Am I a bit too far out there?
