Hippie Heaven

A mountain in France is pulling them in:
A mountain looming over a French commune with a population of just 200 is being touted as a modern Noah's Ark when doomsday arrives – supposedly less than nine months from now.

A rapidly increasing stream of New Age believers – or esoterics, as locals call them – have descended in their camper van-loads on the usually picturesque and tranquil Pyrenean village of Bugarach. They believe that when apocalypse strikes on 21 December this year, the aliens waiting in their spacecraft inside Pic de Bugarach will save all the humans near by and beam them off to the next age.
Yeah, because that's what aliens do - travel all the way to Earth just to rescue stupid Earthlings.

Spaceships are better than comets for passenger travel. Comets just don't have the facilities.
