Mayan doomsday 'safe zone' shut down


Citing fears that doomsday believers, curiosity seekers, and "above all" journalists, will flood a French mountaintop on Dec. 21, the supposed day of the Mayan apocalypse, local officials are banning access to the mountain.
The spot, Pic de Bugarach, is rumored to be one of the only safe places on the planet on Dec. 21, according to Raw Story. On that date, a major cycle of the Maya Long Count calendar ends. The calendar is split into several chunks, including 400-year spans called b'ak'tuns. Dec. 21, 2012 on our calendar marks the end of the 13th b'ak'tun and the beginning of a new cycle.

From the Raw Story article:

"Local officials banned access to the Pic de Bugarach, a mountain in the southwest where rumour has it the hilltop will open on the last day and aliens will emerge with spaceships to save nearby humans."

Alrighty then!

I have just had an idea, if mountain is shut, anyone wishing a safe haven can sit it out on my man made bunker, its cheap, just bring a few candles and tins of food...will also need a cooker cos I have already given mine to Richard.....oh and a sofa, and a few blankets.



Ps: cash only.

thanks.

I think they are a bunch of party poopers, I was looking forward to someone documenting the antics of these folks for hours, possibility days of shared you-tube hilarity afterward. <_<

What makes these gullible people think that sitting on top of a mountain is gonna be safe if there was an Apocalypse , Its the last place I would be. Doomed, Doomed oh dear.Will they ask for their money back when it doesn't happen , or be redirected to another site when the next one is due.

I read that there are only about 200 people who live in this village. I don't blame them wanting to keep out 20,000 nuts.It would have been fun to see the look on their faces the next day though. :)

two hundred you say...
maybe it's a big conspiracy. they're pretending they think it's nonsense, but in actuality they want to be the 'chosen ones' to get taken up with the aliens.
that's it! those sneaky petes!

Time to buy real estate in the area and charge thousands per night. They won't care as the world will end anyway why not spend your last few nights in a real bed and room instead of a tent!

The world needs to get rid of drug dealers? The people that make up these stories are on something?
