Anxiety began to spread around the world from the moment the information about the Mayan calendar ending on December 21, 2012, appeared on television and the Internet. A great number of religious and superstitious people all over the world seem to have taken this 2012 apocalypse prophecy seriously.

Zombie Apocalypse? Really?

The most interesting is that in every country, the supposed end of the world is presented in different ways. For example, Americans believe that on December 21, zombies will take over the planet. So they try to get ready to confront the living dead in every way. The U.S. Internet is full of offers to buy kits for survival on the day of the zombie invasion.

Demand for weapons increased at times in the US. Particularly popular are the rifles with the words “will help to survive in the uprising of zombies”.

Others released a series of video lessons that can prepare a person to resist the living dead. In these lessons, the “teachers” even reveal the secrets of how to provide yourself with food during the apocalyptic period.

Preparations for the ‘2012 Apocalypse’ in Other Countries

At the same time, the residents of Chile are not going to work at all on December 21. According to the research of sociologists, some workers want to get paid in advance and spend this day in a big way.

In Argentina, the approach of the “doomsday” is officially recognized by the government. The authorities have recommended all residents to carefully prepare for the end of the world!

Russians fell into hysteria at first but then decided to experience the ‘2012 apocalypse’ in comfort, if not with enthusiasm. Now, there is a boom in bunkers, particularly in the capital of the country and its suburb. Rich people buy specially equipped storages to sit there and wait till the “end” is over.

“Bunkers are equipped with filters that do not let any contamination or fumes inside. We can even equip a bunker with a system, similar to the one of air supply in a submarine. There you can install any life support systems, access controls, and all kinds of storages.”

The cost of these comfortable shelters starts from two hundred thousand dollars. The maximum price just does not apply.

European citizens are not very excited about the rumors about the end of the world. In Britain, two radio stations tell the audience about how to survive the apocalypse.

And of course, bookmakers all over the world work in full swing, taking bets on the apocalypse. Some promise that if the end of the world comes, the players will enrich themselves hundreds of times. But they fail to answer the question: if the 2012 apocalypse happens, will it matter then? 🙂
