Pic de Bugarach: French commune home to 20,000 ‘doomsday cultists’ awaiting alien salvation | The Sideshow – Yahoo! News.

20,000 French cultists gathered around the foot of Pic de Bugarach, awaiting the emergence of an alien race that will herald the end of days and whisk them away to a new world.  In the meantime, they spend their days making models of the mountain out of mashed potatoes.

(To be fair, this was happening “before” Close Encounters of the Third Kind premiered, but who cares?  It’s funny….)

Locals apparently refer to these people as “esoterics.”  C’mon…let’s call them what they are….crazy people.  The French government is actually worried about mass suicides taking place near the mountain as we draw closer to December 21st, the infamous end of the Mayan calendar.  Really, anyone care?  If these people are camped out around the base of this mountain they obviously aren’t working or otherwise benefiting society.  They should just beat them to the punch and nuke the site from orbit.  It’s the only way to be sure.
