According to the Mayan’s, the end of the world will happen in just over two weeks. People are preparing for this in a number of ways. Virgins are lowering their standards and getting laid, old people are cranking through their bucket lists, and some are seeking shelters that will withstand the fury of humanity’s destruction. But hey – if you fall into category three, then I’ve got some good news.
A small town in France by the name of Bugarach which houses a mere 176 claims to be a safe Haven from the apocalypse. You see, they say that when the shit storm hits, aliens will emerge from their mountain and save all of the humans in the town’s vicinity.
Rumors and speculation spread by doomsday cults have turned the small farming community of Bugarach, France, into an apocalypse destination. Anyone in the vicinity of the town’s nearby Pic de Bugarach will supposedly be spared on December 21, 2012, the date of the Mayan Apocalypse, when aliens emerge from the mountain and rescue anyone in the vicinity.
My favorite part of this story is how the local trolls are totally cashing in on the dumb people who are flocking to their town.
While the village’s 176 residents may not believe this, they are more than willing to accommodate those who do. As UFO watchers and Armageddon tourists flock to the town, locals are selling everything they can, from chunks of Pic de Bugarach’s rock face to water from the local spring at $20 a bottle. One landowner is even renting his house overlooking the peak for over $1,500 per night. “I possess a rare asset,” he told a local paper. “The land of immortality.”
So if this dude houses people at his crib for $1500 a night, he will have made over 25k by the time the 21st rolls around. That’s going by today’s date, who knows how long this has been going on for.
The one question I like to ask myself is this; what are all of these people going to do when they spend all of their money and the world doesn’t end? Trolling level: Mayans.
