This is, of course the infamous part of an infamous drawing that was found in a cave close to Mount Improbable by legendary Archeologist Vulg von Altmeister in the region of Moveon (named after an uttering of the first settlers) on Planet Yobbo.

As you know several artifacts of a high ancient civilisation similar to toe Maya have been found that seems to have died out before the arrival of the first Settlers on Planet Yobbo. Since we have no written accounts of this civilisation and the equivalent of the Rosetta Stone has not been discovered yet, the true meaning of these artifacts remains a mystery.
There has been a fierce debate amongst Archeologists, Anthropologists and Historians over what this could be. The arguments have ranged from a calendar to fertile symbols to depictions of their gods to the sheer doodlings of an inmate of their equivalent of a mental health asylum. Untill no method of translation can be found this drawing will remain an unsolved mystery.

Looks like today's date on the Mayan calendar (Long Count). Not ruling out Pat's answer though.

Despite furious protests from Herr Doktor von Altmeister Mike is correct

I am just waiting for the day when the comment pit will all gather, walk up to your house and ring on the door bell to claim all that Pizza...I would have to get a biometric passport but the look on your face would be priceless hehe

New debate with SP on Evolution tonight !

That would be awesome! As long as it's not in the immediate future. Amy can't really fly right now. I'm game for the gathering! I think we could probably eat for a week on the tab we've built up.

Amy used to be able to fly? I've known Amy for a long time, this is the first time I ever heard she could fly. As ALWAYS, that Amy just impresses the crap out of me!

Yes indeed, that was Today's Date in the Maya Long Count Calendar. Mike -- you are smart. Pizza 2 U. I filched it from an automated "Today's Date in the Maya Long Count Calendar" at

http://www.pagetworld.co.uk/mayan.php

I am deeply sorry if I am the Bearer of Bad Tidings, but in that same calendar, the World, Time & the Universe will end on what our calendar reckons as

21 December 2012

... so don't make any Long-Term plans. We're all Toast.

Wikipedia:

21 December 2012 — The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, notably used by the Maya civilization among others of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, completes its thirteenth b'ak'tun cycle since the calendar's mythical starting point (equivalent to 3114 BC August 11 in the proleptic Gregorian calendar, according to the "GMT-correlation" JDN= 584283).[6] The Long Count b'ak'tun date of this starting point (13.0.0.0.0) is repeated, for the first time in a span of approximately 5,125 solar years. The significance of this period-ending to the pre-Columbian Maya themselves is unclear, and there is an incomplete inscription (Tortuguero Monument 6) that records this date. It is also to be found carved on the walls of the Temple of Inscriptions in Palenque, where it functions as a base date from which other dates are computed.[7] However, it is conjectured that this may represent in the Maya belief system a transition from the current Creation world into the next.

Astronomically, the buzz I heard about 21 Dec 2012 is that this is zackly the same Star Zodiac Transition Moment as the nekkid hippies sing about in "This Is The Dawning Of The Age Of Aquarius" in "Hair."

i actually got a pal who is a authentic Mayan archeologist and she says the computerized Long Count Date Site I filched this from is ... uhhh ... maybe not really perfectly correct or accurate. I will try to get her detailed Critical Analysis of my PizzaQ.

I call it flying, she calls it "falling with style". Either way, they just won't let her on a plane these days. Her personal carry-ons don't meet regulations.

21st of December 2012 ? Blast, that is the day before my birthday...

But to be serious I think I read somwehere that on this day a 5000 year cycle will end and a new cycle of about 5000 give or take will start. No toast, just a new cycle and a free pint for me at the Pub.
I just got reminded of this little nice story:

American teens say: "Sucks to be you, dude." Sorry about the birthday. And I was going to send you the new Wii.

I forget who it was, but one comedian said, "Yes, I know that flying is statistically much safer than driving. But when something goes wrong with my car, I don't immediately plummet two miles straight down."

Laurie Anderson says she knows a guy who always carries a bomb with him when he flies, because he read that the odds against there being TWO bombs on the same plane are 500,000,000,000,000 to 1.

What the hell is in Amy's carry-on luggage?

The pizza always awaits anyone who can get to my 'hood, and I will buy it for u at your fave pizzeria if & when I ever get to your 'hood.

But meanwhile, if somebody wants to start cooking up a scheme where every PizzaQ winner can conveniently meet at the same pizzeria -- Iceland, maybe? -- I am SO up for that!

A visit to the USA from my side is highly unlikely at the moment, I just read the news: According to the Swiss Departement of Justice swiss citizens must mandatorraly register online at the Ministry of Homeland Security (Heimatschutz hehe)starting January 12th. Apart from a required biometric passport you are also required to fill out a questionnaire. I know one guy who was refused entry to the US on the grounds that he had not finished his military service in CH based on that questionnaire . I mean, I can live with a biometric passport, bur registering with Homeland Security ??? Nah, mate. first we help the CIA to get rid of and shredder important documents anth this is how we are thanked for?. the current Minister in charge said she is sorry but there is not much that she can do. Pooey. Linx on req
