How to Survive the Apocalypse pt2

Well I think that must have been the strangest dream of all time. I’m kind of shook up.

It’s all starting to seem pretty unbelievable now but to wake up while actually typing on my computer, well, that’s a first for this blogger anyway. While searching for any evidence that what I dreamt was true I did stumble upon this Mayan Doomsday gem:

Believers of the Mayan calendar prediction that the world will end on December 21 have flooded into a small village in western Turkey, near the ancient Greek city of Ephesus.

They think Ephesus was where the Virgin Mary rose to heaven, which this ex-Lutheran wasn’t even aware of happening. But apparently at least 60,000 are aware of this and excited enough to make the journey there to wait out the end times. I guess Mary left some of her aura or something there so when the rest of the planet breaks apart somehow this place will go on just fine. Pretty awesome power, really.

Oh wait, maybe there’s a better reason for Ephesus’ popularity:

An ancient Greek village, Sirince is home to boutique hotels attracting Turkey’s wealthy class. It is also well known for its wine.

Now that’s a Doomsday Destination we can get behind.
