Let the ‘Doomsday’ countdown begin

NEW YORK (PIX11) – If you’re  one of six million Americans who believe in the Mayan Calendar Doomsday theory, then you probably haven’t made any plans for the weekend, or the next few hundred years because as of Friday December 21st, 2012 at 11:11 a.m.–  the world as we know it will be done.

So how are these believers prepping for the Apocalypse? Well a simple search for “Doomsday” in the personals section of Craigslist will bring up a slew of listings offering “end of the world” hook-ups that will have you leaving the earth with a bang – literally.

Even the New York Post is getting in on the action, plastering the profile of a busty lingerie model who is on a quest to have relations, or as Borat would put it “sexy time.”


“If I die, I don’t want to die on a dry spell!” model Niki Ghazian told the Post. The blonde beauty revealed that she will be attending a fashion party Thursday night, and has big plans on hooking up with someone hot.

Meanwhile those who are taking the rapture a little bit more seriously have other priorities.

Ryan Croft, a North Carolina dad, isn’t taking any chances. He’s ready for any scenario, and to say he’s packing some heat, would be a colossal understatement.

“I’m not planning on the world going away,” Croft told CNN as he brandished an MK-5 rifle, his creation that is best described as a mix between an AR-15 and AK-47. “That sucks! However, I’m a realist. I’m not going to put my head in the sand and the world is in a dark place right now. The world is unsure of itself.”

Over in the tiny village of Bugarach, France, locals say their community is the safest place to be when Armageddon strikes. Apparently deep inside the mountains that oversee the community, a group of aliens – yes aliens –  have been calling it home for tens of thousands of years.

Locals believe when doomsday unravels, the aliens will jump into their ship and head to another planet. Anyone who is around, will probably be able to hitch a ride.

Whether you plan on getting it on or preparing for the worst, NASA insists you have nothing to be worried about. The federal agency is so certain the world will not end, they produced 4 minute YouTube video explaining why. Long story short:  theorists have clearly misread the Mayan calendar, as December 21, 2012 is not the clear Doomsday many claim it to be.

Time will tell, but as a wise man once said, “don’t cancel your weekend plans.”
