Since the concept of the Leap Year was first implemented back in 45BC, there have been about 514 of them.
Without the extra day every 4 years, we would be in 2013.

As the Mayan Calendar doesn't take leap years into account; 2012 has been and gone.

(Edit - no: I'm not smart enough to work that out myself. I read it!)

The Mayan calender ended because they didn't feel like continuing it, too much work.

Maya count the kin and uinal and tun and katun and baktun and pictun and calabtun and kinchiltun and alautun entirely differently.

Actually, that's not true. You see, there are actually 365 and one quarter days in a year, but that's not very tidy, so leap years were added to the calender to make up for the quarter days.
So don't worry, you'll still get your doomsday :D

Doomsday is just a dumb pagan belief that supports that the world would end because of some supernatural occurance. The day doesn't exist. People, why would you ever make a day to end the world? That is pointless. The Earth will never end.

Aww, man. There goes my dream of being a junk/weapons vendor. ... Oh, well. On the bright side, at least I don't have to worry about the whole "Survive the apocalypse and survive in a now much more hostile world" part.
