French village of Bugarach will survive the 2012 apocalypse

It is impossible to stay away from the 2012 apocalypse theories. Handed to us courtesy of the Mayan calendar, which ends the same year, and is for some reason blown way out of proportion. Anyways, if you do have any belief in these stories, the French village of Bugarach holds promise as a place that will survive the 2012 destruction. According to Bugarach’s mayor, there are “sacred mountains” in the village with an “alien garage” where aliens wait underground for the world to end. So those in the village will get a shot at survival. And here we thought aliens had better things to do, you know, like abducting cows or something. Maybe they’re doing all that to kill time.

Then one fine day, the woman walked in while the husband was bathing, and probably found something amiss… or whatever. It appears the woman was posing as a man to get hands on the dowry Minati was bringing along.
