French Mountain Closed - No Place To Hide On December 21

The town of Bugarach, France has closed all the roads to their city effective today through December 23. The town has in its city limits the only real access to a mountain which is believed to be the only safe place come December 21 when the world ends. Apparently the aliens will save anyone who is on the mountain and the rest of the world will perish. Now, why the aliens would pick a mountain in France or how the Mayans would have known about the tiny town of Bugarach is unknown, but what is known is that thousands of people have descended on the tiny French town and that is way too many for the town to handle. It is being crushed by the onslaught of people trying to save themselves.

Having been all around the world, maybe the aliens just find the French Pyrenees more relaxing than the Mayan jungle.

Why a mountain in France? Ask the Babylonian Brotherhood.

Anastasia Walker said...

Holy crap. I really hope that December 21 comes and goes with no big cataclysms or upheaval. Just everyone being so freaked out about it is scary and ads to the hysteria.

Brian said...

Make it a toll road. You have to sign over all earthly possessions to enter the town, no refunds on the 22nd...

It's the Millennium all over again. Remember when everyone freaked about the computers going nuts at the year 2000?

SingBlue said...

Oh the irony if the mountain was actually a dormant volcano ready to go all Dante...

We had this a couple of years ago with the rapture. People went to really zany rapture parties.

The only thing we can probably be certain about is that our Gregorian Calendar is full of mistakes.

Of course in the Bengali calendar this year is 1419, so we could just adopt that and not worry about 21-12-12.

I feel bad about my urge to laugh. Can you imagine how freaked out these people are?

I'm not sure I'd even want to be one of the few people left after the "end of the world".... seems like it'd be rather bleak and scary.

Amber said...

I've read that the Mayans' end of the world was symbolic, and not literal. I tend to stick to that theory.

Caitlin Costanzo said...

I swear, I really hope all of the power goes out on the 21st just for like ten mins. and scare the crap out of everyone.

Vicki Cupper said...

Amber, I've it more as the end of a calendar. They would have just made a new one.

SusanB said...

I didn't mind the Y2K stuff so much, there was a logical reason behind the panic. But this is just dumb. I don't blame that town for shutting out people.

Caitlin Costanzo said...

Yeah, it doesn't say End of the World on 12/21 it says new age besides if they were so amazing at prophecy, why didn't they predict the Spanish coming?

Rosemary Young said...

The Y2K computer threat was real. Intrepid geeks saved the day!
However the Mayans did not "predict" that the world would end on 12/21/2012. That is a misunderstanding that has been debunked by experts.

I agree with Amber, it's just the end of a cycle nothing more.

Robert said...

It would be great if a small meteor would just hit that mountain.

ReesesPeace said...

Sigh. My boyfriend's Mom has been calling several times a week since September...I'm now refusing to answer the phone most of the time because it's just so freaking stupid!! And, yeah...I must be evil as I'm hoping for a major elecrical blow-out on that day. :D

I was just in belize last month and went to the mayan ruins and talked to the locals about all this. They believed it to be symbolic, not literal as Amber said. The mayans believed it to be because all the planets are moving into the photon belt in the universe. Look up photon belt and you'll see what they mean. Kinda neat actually. They were some smart fuckers back then.

Monica said...

@Caitlin, they didn't "predict events" like the spanish coming, they were astronomers who predicted planetary change.

BobNYC said...

The French should nuke that mountain and rid us of the mind-numb dolts who trekked there. Its called "culling the heard." Those people do not deserve to continue breathing air.

crila16 said...

People are really demented. It's quite shocking how many loonies there are out there.

BTW...they've now said if the world doesn't end on the 21st...it's now sometime in March 2013.

ljsmed said...

Great idea lol

ljsmed said...

Some people are looney tunes....

Unknown said...

They did. They predicted the day, and thought bearded gods were coming. Bit off on that one...

MC said...

@Caitlin-Yes!!! This would be awesome!

Della said...

My daughters birthday is on the 21st. If it ends I will be surrounded by cup cakes, Yo gabba gabba decorations and about 10 toddlers.

Diana G said...

That's awesome! ;-) Love your comment!

Me said...

we'rehavimg a "last supper" atm my house. ar inviting friemds. then were going looking at christmas lights! feel like, it being the end and all, enty should really reveal ALL thw BI's. you know, so we can go to our glory w/o any questions.

Mango said...

If those pesky Spaniards hadn't burned the Codex we might have answers to these nagging questions.

@ Robert - LOL! Wouldn't that be a funny coinkydink!

timebob said...

The 21st is going to be like the Sopranos series finale. All hype and no payoff.

Cornbread said...

When Y2K was approaching, my doomsday prepper aunt and uncle went bananas. They withdrew all their money from the bank, and buried it in mason jars around their house. They had a map detailing where each jar was, and what amount it had. Also, lots of canned goods. They're still on the nutty side, but they've calmed down a bit.

If it really WERE the "end", why would you want to stick around to see what happens next? When it's time, it's time.

However, this is the perfect opportunity to get folks like Lilo, the K Klan, Courtney Stodden, etc., on top of a mountain.

@timebob, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the finale sucked. I mean, artsy and meaningful and whatever, but still...not what I was expecting.

MadLyb said...

The only thing December 21st signifies me is that it will kick off hell week at my job, though technically, it's already started. End of year SUCKS.

Swaysway1 said...

The thing people never understood was that the Mayans never looked for an ending, but much rather a guaranteed start. For them, it's quite possible that this is a new era. A human enlightenment. I'm not worried about anything.

cindy said...

You guys, Im in Asia, 12 hours ahead of New York. I'll give you a heads up if the world ends here first. Oh, wait...

plrtz glrb said...

Haha that reminds me last time some crazy pastor predicted the end of the world, a couple of yrs ago or something, I of course didn't believe it. but then right at the time he predicted, like 6 o'clock this huge thunderstorm rolled in out of nowhere and there was a crack of lightning right outside the house. I was frantically calling my friends but couldn't get through, I thought they'd been raptured. obviously it was all ok but just wanted to share that laugh. if a similar thing happens tomorrow, I'll probably freak out too

misspeg86 said...

Enty you MUST reveal the MV blind before the world ends! I must knowww!!!

ms snarky said...

What Dec 21 means to me:

When we start gaining a minute of light per day, heading toward spring. Yay.

B626 said...

Watching the stars was their only evening entertainment. We'd all be alot better at it too if we we're living in a technology free world.

Colleen said...

I'm with misspeg! We have to know who MV is just in case the world does end tomorrow. ;)
