I have solved the mystery to the myan calendar!! read on:

Back in 1000 B.C. the South Mexico Olmec tribe ate chocolate all the time. The Mayans drank liquid chocolate during all kinds of occasions, like engagements, weddings, baptisms, and even funerals. In fact, Cacao Beans were so valued in ancient Mexico that the Maya, and later Toltec and Aztec civilizations used them as a unit of calculation and currency to purchase small household items and pay for other services. A large tomato was worth one bean, a rabbit was ten beans, and a slave was a hundred beans. Taxes levied against conquered tribes were also paid in Cacao beans by sacks, each containing about 24000 beans. The Mayans and Aztecs believed that Cacao Beans came from paradise and would bring wisdom and power to anyone eating them. The Aztecs mixed chocolate with chilies, cornmeal, and hallucinogenic mushrooms that made into a bitter brew.

it was the chocolate covered hallucinogenic mushrooms!!
