You can count on survival stores making a killing on sales of generators, ‘survival seeds’ and emergency crank radios. For some, there has never been an apocalyptic prediction they didn’t embrace after watching a ridiculous History Channel special on the latest doomsday scenario. If that’s you, and you want to know what to do after the the gamma ray burst or the displacement of the earth’s crust hits the planet on the 21st, you’d better hurry down to Where To Survive 2012 and read up on how to pack that survival kit. More important, you’ll learn the best place on the planet to survive the Mayan apocalypse.
(Spoiler alert: It’s Turkey. Something about it being free of oceans and volcanoes…and has a high elevation with “friendly native populations” and lots of natural resources and wild animals. Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it?)
And then along comes NASA to spoil the fun. Enjoy. I’m off to check out my flight reservation to Ankara.
