Mayan countdown calendar to 2012 doomsday?

According to some, the Mayan Calendar is counting down to the Earth's demise. Dec. 21, 2012. How will it end do you ask? An asteroid impact? Maybe strange cosmic alignments will rip the Earth apart? Or... Nothing! Whatever happens we will all have the next fours years, and counting, to talk about it. Good luck!
Check out our Mayan calendar interactive to see how it works.

Faster than a speeding bullet?

The quest to build the world's fastest car has been going on for over a hundred years. Now, the Bloodhound Supersonic Car attempts to go over 1,000 mph, the fastest ever. I'm sure if this succeeds, there are a few speed demons in South Florida that would love to drive this gem. I wouldn't!
Check this car out at the Bloodhound website.

African-American firsts

How long will it take me to get over the first black president being elected by these United States? I have no idea, but I am happy to be alive for this historic moment in American history. Take a look at other historic African-American firsts on blackpast.org.
