French village which will 'survive 2012 Armageddon' plagued by visitors (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/ufo/8217001/French-village-which-will-survive-2012-Armageddon-plagued-by-visitors.html)


But in the past few months, the quiet village has been inundated by groups of esoteric outsiders who believe the peak is an "alien garage".

According to them, extraterrestrials are quietly waiting in a massive cavity beneath the rock for the world to end, at which point they will leave, taking, it is hoped, a lucky few humans with them.

Most believe Armageddon will take place on December 21, 2012, the end date of the ancient Maya calendar, at which point they predict human civilisation will come to an end. Another favourite date mentioned is 12, December, 2012. They see Bugarach as one of perhaps several "sacred mountains" sheltered from the cataclysm.

Oddly enough, I know a chap who has cashed in his pension and bought a farm in France. He's actually bought into all this Mayan calendar stuff. :eek:

Or he's claiming he has bought into it. In fact he has a farm full of like minded visitors who happily pay to attend seminars and work for free to stay there. As a Plan B it does have some merits...

Idiot Mayor - he's got just 2 years windows of opportunity to sell all sort of tulip to visitors and make a killing.

Sensible mayor responding to the concerns of citizens.

Some people, believe it or not, are quite happy in their villages preferring six toes on each foot to six figure incomes. Leave them to it; they're not harming anyone.
