Many Dutch prepare for 2012 apocalypse

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, June 23 (UPI) -- Thousands of people in the Netherlands say they expect the world to end in 2012, and many say they are taking precautions to prepare for the apocalypse.

The Dutch-language de Volkskrant newspaper said it spoke to thousands of believers in the impending end of civilization, and while theories on the supposed catastrophe varied, most tied the 2012 date to the end of the Mayan calendar, Radio Netherlands reported Monday.

De Volkskrant said many of those interviewed are stocking up on emergency supplies, including life rafts and other equipment.

Some who spoke to the newspaper were optimistic about the end of civilization.

"You know, maybe it's really not that bad that the Netherlands will be destroyed," Petra Faile said. "I don't like it here anymore. Take immigration, for example. They keep letting people in. And then we have to build more houses, which makes the Netherlands even heavier. The country will sink even lower, which will make the flooding worse."


:lol: It's getting too crowded so the world might as well end :-D

I am not buying Christmas presents until after 12/23 that year just in case though. So, if your present seems rushed and not very thoughtful, you'll know why.

I probably won't be buying Christmas presents because I'll be too busy running my own Invisibles cell ;)

I seriously doubt The Student Loan People would let the world end prior to me paying them in full.

They had to quote the dumbest person polled, huh?

BTW - 2012 is not supposed to be a real apocalypse, rather a death and rebirth of ideas, or time of real and extreme growth.

Yes; because you'll want to start PREPARING for the end of the world as we know it.

A lot of PREPARING to do for that.

True, of course. I'm just saying that what the Mayans thought of as the end of the world is more like the Death card in a Tarot pack than actual, physical armageddon.

You mean Grant Morrison didn't invent that?

And here all this time I've been putting his picture in my school locker...
