Surviving The End Of The World In 2012, In France

Fri Dec 24, 2010 4:15 pm

For reasons that seem to attract certain people, a small village in the backwoods of France has become home to a disparate bunch of folks who see it as a place to be spared when the end of the world turns up.... thanks to the Mayan calendar that, evidently, stops at the end of 2012 when there is a certain galactic alignment.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...rmageddon-plagued-by-visitors.html

Mr Delord said people had been coming to the village for the past 10 years or so in search of alien life following a post in an UFO review by a local man, who has since died. "He claimed he had seen aliens and heard the humming of their spacecraft under the mountain," he said.

The internet abounds with tales of the late President François Mitterrand being curiously heliported on to the peak, of mysterious digs conducted by the Nazis and later Mossad, the Israeli secret services.

Why do I dislike France? Because every (and I do mean EVERY) French person I have met has been rude, obnoxious, opinionated and under the impression that they are superior to everyone else. I have yet to meet a French person to prove me wrong.

I used to feel the same about Australians until I spent a week in Sydney, that really turned me around. Unfortunately I have no desire to spend any time in France so I don't see the same happening.

Joyeux Noël à tous!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

I really don't get this "theory". The whole basis for declaring that the world is going to end, is that the Mayan calendar ends some time in 2012, right?

So bleeding what? My calendar ends every year on December 31!

I felt the same way about the Russians... During a trip to the UAE, a Russian tour group literally pushed my mother to the ground (with no acknowledgment or apology) as they were rushing into the dining room of our hotel in Abu Dhabi to get the best tables. Then while eating, they belched out loud, yelled across the room to other patrons and a few actually threw food at the waiters in order to get their attention.

I do realize that these people only represent a small group of people and not Russia as a whole but when your mother with arthritis and a bad leg gets pushed to the ground all sense of trying to be P.C. goes straight our the window...

Oh you're right then, because that's exactly the way we all are here in France. So I agree with you it's better for everyone if you keep of France.

That's very dangerous thinking, I hope you're exaggerating...

When you are a serial offender in righting off whole national populations, it's time to do some soul searching about whether it's you who have the issue.... You said yourself that you were proved wrong before.
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

This is a really funny article! I feel bad for the mayor and the other locals. The way they claim the town atmosphere has been spoiled by these ufo'ers. I guess everyone has whatever beliefs they like, but I can understand that the mayor wants additional police resources as 2012 approaches. Just imagine how all these wackos will react when they wake up the day after the calendar ended and realize the planet is still here and the "Armageddon" never happened.

Didn't you see the other writing on the Mayan Calendar? It ends in 2012 with writing saying "Chuck Norris"

The Mayan calender does not end in 2012 - the cycle of the calender ends in 2012. For the Mayans, they just start over in 2012, something like Gregorian calender does every Jan 1, the Chinese calendar does every 19 years, etc.

Heck the Japanese calendar starts over with year 1 everytime a new emperor is crowned. This year 2010 is Heisei 22.
