In case you didn’t know, the Mayans 5125 year long calendar ends this Friday, 12/21/12. To some, the end of this calendar signals the end of the world as we know. To others it simply means the Mayans felt no need to figure out dates nearly 5,000 years into the future and planed on worrying about it when the time came. Here is summation of possible events courtesy of Wikipedia.
A New Age interpretation of this transition is that the date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 21 December 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggest that the date marks the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, an interaction between Earth and the black hole at the center of the galaxy, or Earth’s collision with a planet called “Nibiru”.
Personally I’m rooting for a collision of with Nibiru. If other predictions are to be believed the earth will undergo a series of natural disasters the like of which mankind has never seen before; atomic hurricanes, fire quakes, bee blizzards and other fun stuff. In the event of such catastrophes you may find a vehicle like this UNICAT to be of interest.
This particular truck has a 1600 mile range when carrying four adults, supplies and 110 gallons of water. If you happen to run out of water their is an onboard solar powered desalination unit capable of six gallons of water an hour. Of course the luxury of being the last human on earth doesn’t come cheap. A setup like this one costs in excess of 700,000 dollars.
