Aniruddha is always there for me! He must have the middle-aged woman worrywart demographic because every time I ask a question whether it’s about a dead arm, a bloody eye, how to use nostalgia in a sentence, or if the world is going to end now that a 28 year old has a really cool new live action video game, Anirudda has my answer.
According to Aniruddha, “Professional Mayanist scholars state that predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the extant classic Maya accounts, and that the idea that the Long Count calendar “ends” in 2012 misrepresents Maya history and culture.” Furthermore, “Astronomers and other scientists have rejected the proposed events as pseudoscience, stating that they are contradicted by simple astronomical observations.”
Nonetheless, I’d feel better if the guy on the right didn’t seem to be thinking loudly, “We are so dead.”
Some other questions I asked Anirudda:
Is it smidgeon or smidgeoned?
Is it Googled or Google-ed
Can a person die from a bloody eye?
How do you heat coffee up after you give your microwave away?
At what age is frumpiness considered a “glamour do?”
Did you mean to search for: At what age is grumpiness considered a “glamour do?”
Yeah, that’s what I meant. Just let me talk to Aniruddha , he’ll know.
How do you pronounce nuclear?
What are the best foods to have on hand in case of a nuclear (noo-klee-er) war?
This is the official Wiki answer– those Wikiguys have a sense of humor!
Okay, I have work to do before the world ends – I have a Web site to design; I keep telling the customer, you should check out WordPress – then you won’t need me (I am a brilliant business woman). I’m not coming back until I finish the guy’s site, so please feel free to leave a comment or opinion, but I’m sorry I won’t be able to reply. However, if needed, my friend Aniruddha is always available with a a well thought out response.
Later: For those of you who received this via email: I should have consulted with Aniruddha before I trusted the photo caption on AOL. Neither man is Kim Jong Un’s dad (duh, no big hair), but both seem to be thinking the same thing, “What if that Mayan calendar thing is true?”
