Though the Mayans never really predicted that the world would end on Friday, some New Agers are convinced that humanity's demise is indeed imminent. Or at least that it's a good excuse for a party.

Believers are being drawn to spots where they think their chances of survival will be better, and accompanying them are the curious, the party-lovers and people wanting to make some money.

Here are some of the world's key doomsday destinations and other places marked by fear and fascination.

FRANCE

According to one rumor, a rocky mountain in the French Pyrenees will be the sole place on earth to escape destruction. A giant UFO and aliens are said to be waiting under the mountain, ready to burst through and spirit those nearby to safety. But here is bad news for those seeking salvation: French gendarmes, some on horseback, are blocking outsiders from reaching the Bugarach peak and its village of some 200 people.

One believer, Ludovic Broquet, a 30-year-old plumber, made his way to the mountain after a year of preparation, hoping to find a "gateway, the vortex that will open up here (at) the end of the world."

RUSSIA

For $1,500, a museum is offering salvation from the world's end in former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin's underground bunker in central Moscow

Wait for the date shifting. A common tactic of people whose predictions turn to ****.

I make fun of doomsday bull****, but I am aware that people actually do kill themselves over this stupid ****. I can't describe how depressed I feel thinking about people who kill themselves over superstitious nonsense.

Not just that if they swallow this turd how much of a leap is it for them to swallow the antivaxer or antifluoridation crap and cause some real damage.

There is no bad excuse for a party.

i love the psychology behind things like this. people crave drama so much that they actually believe the end-of-the-world stuff. Their lives are so boring that they have to invent things and create drama where there isnt any just to get their kicks.

it isnt much of a surprise why people love television dramas, apocalyptic movies, or terrible reality tv shows. They crave drama. it's insane, imo.

I love these predictions. Makes a good excuse for an end of the world party. Looking forward to bar jumping tonight.
