“Bugarach, population 189, is a peaceful farming village in the Aude region, southwestern France and sits at the foot of the Pic de Bugarach, the highest mountain in the Corbières wine-growing area.
“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.”
Is it wrong to profit off of the confused? At least the Bugarach Mayor is thinking of stopping them. But at least the confused have some taste, they chose the wine country in France, rather than the top of the Himalayas or some rough place.
One thing that all of the past end-of-the-world predictions has in common… the world is still here, so they’re all wrong.
