2012 Or: Relax This Won't Hurt

How to prepare for the coming apocalypse?

In the tiny french city of Bugarach, so called "esoterics" have gathered for years in the belief that, come 2012, something extraordinary will take place on "the Sacred Mountain" nearby. Will the aliens living under the mountain finally reveal themselves? is it a new age of enlightenment? No-one really knows...

Residents speak of strange groups of people, naked or dressed in white, climbing the peak with various artifacts. A van has been spotted with the ominous message: COLLECTIVE SUICIDE: BUGARACH 2012. As the mayor says:

 

“If it happens as in Mr. Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it would be necessary to call in the army.”
