Some Quickies

About John Travolta being gay ... I've known about that for years. Many stars swing both ways as do many people in mainstream.

Friday night was the season finale of Fringe. The final season will have 13 more episodes.

Lots of other shows are having finales - season and series. My favorite show this season -- "Person of Interest".

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 suggests dates thousands of years beyond that.

Seated king wearing blue feathers. Kukulcan? Alien?

The oldest-known version of the ancient Maya calendar has been discovered adorning a lavishly painted wall in the ruins of a city deep in the Guatemalan rainforest. The hieroglyphs, painted in black and red, along with a colorful mural of a king and his mysterious attendants, seem to have been a sort of handy reference chart for court scribes in A.D. 800 - the astronomers and mathematicians of their day. Contrary to popular myth, this calendar isn't a countdown to the end of the world in December 2012, the study researchers said.
