Mayan Doomsday Update: You’re going to have to pay your taxes after all.  In the last known, still mostly unexplored Mayan megacity, researchers have discovered unique wall murals and a calendar that predicts the world not being destroyed, but instead continuing.

“In addition to a still vibrant scene of a king and his retinue, the walls are rife with calculations that helped ancient scribes track vast amounts of time. Contrary to the idea the Maya predicted the end of the world in 2012, the markings suggest dates thousands of years in the future.”

The image at the right is a wall mural of Mayan warriors.  It and it’s companion murals are unprecedented, having never been found anywhere else.

You can watch a video on this discovery on the National Geographic website.

As if regular tornadoes aren’t bad enough, now we have to worry about fire tornadoes.  Fortunately they’re rare, but nonetheless pretty darn scary.   I’m seriously rethinking that decision to visit family in Australia.

From the Associated Press here’s footage of the space shuttle Endeavour as it lands in Houston on its way to its new home at a California museum.
