    The mayor of a picturesque French village has threatened to call in the army to seal it off from a tide of New Age fanatics and UFO watchers, who are convinced it is the only place on Earth to be spared Armageddon in 2012. 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.

    Most believe Armageddon will take place on December 21, 2012, the end date of the ancient Maya calendar, at which point they predict human civilisation will come to an end. Another favourite date mentioned is 12, December, 2012. They see Bugarach as one of perhaps several "sacred mountains" sheltered from the cataclysm.

    "This is no laughing matter," Jean-Pierre Delord, the mayor, told The Daily Telegraph. ...

    Hmm, alien garage? Someone's going to get probed and it won't be nice. :D

    "You can't go for a peaceful walk anymore. It's a beautiful area, but now you find people chanting lying around meditating. Everybody has the right to their own beliefs, but the place no longer feels like ours." She said alien watchers planted strange objects on the mountainside.
    If she'd mentioned naked bike-riding, I would have thought she was talking about Boulder.

    Yes they will, to feed themselves during the flight home. The young fat ones will go first.
