    It's zero days until 12/21/11, not 366.

    I was saying today starts the countdown. That was done on purpose because it's today's date.

    It's not an official countdown thread without pics.

    Why does the countdown start today? Wasn't it at 367 yesterday?

    Or was it at 1 yesterday, counting down to the day the countdown starts?

    This is going to be confusing starting tomorrow; the thread title will be in the past, and yet we will be counting forward. Or is it not really a countdown but a thread about an event a year away?

    You're a countdown from a year.

    The much-hyped "prediction" that, according to the ancient Mayan calendar, the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012, may be based on a miscalculation.
    According to recent research, the mythological date of the "end of days" may be off by 50 to 100 years.
    To convert the ancient Mayan calendar to the Gregorian (or modern) calendar, scholars use a numerical value (called the GMT). But Gerardo Aldana, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, says the data supporting the widely-adopted conversion factor may be invalid

    Well, at least you didn't cite snopes.com. I was a victim of that for years around here.

    The problem is, tomorrow the thread title wont mean anything. The countdown wont be related to today's date anymore.

    Maybe we can start a new thread everyday with that day's date and the new number for that day in the countdown.

    One for each day of Christmas, too.

    And it's Budweiser, not Budwieser. I before E, except after C, or when in the name of beers.
