It seems like every year we're warned by a gown-wearing group of zealots that the world is ending, so we better buckle up! This year, however, the rapture date was provided by a source much more credible than your creepy neighbor Jesco - this time, it's from an ancient civilization. Supposedly the apocalypse is scheduled for Friday - of course the Mayans couldn't wait until after the holiday weekend.
