It's the end of the world they're not going to take credit. It would probably need to be precious metals or gem stones.

The wikileaks shelter looked like the best bond-villain/spectre outfit. The Maldives one looked the nicest. None of them looked like McAfee's Belize.

I remember a while back reading that based on high value targets and nuclear arsenal, Tierra del Fuego was the last place on Earth nuclear fallout would accumulate. So I'm heading there for the end of the world. Of course the target priorities may have changed, but whatever.

That's pretty good. Does it come with a team of leather-clad female ninjas for male residents, and a cadre of black-uniformed male Spec Ops types for us women?

CSB: Even though I knew it was bullshiat, when Y2K was approaching I booked a New Year's trip to Costa Rica. I figured if the shiat was gonna hit the fan I wanted to be on a warm beach until things got back to normal.

There was an Englishman in the late '30's who was certain that a world war was about to begin and decided to move to the safest place he could find. After much research, he did in fact move. To Guadalcanal.

/Never heard from again.

Do you want your own team of female ninjas or are you willing to share? If you want your own you might be out of luck. Especially if you aren't Carlos Slim.

I think the best places to ride out the end of the world are probably pretty well-kept secrets that you will not find online.

The boyfriend and I are gonna spend the end of days at the omni hotel in the city. Just lock ourselves up, order room service and have fun. If we're gonna die, we're gonna show them Mayans our BIDNESS.

And carriers a likely some of the first targets in a nuclear war. Wherever they are.

I'll be honest. If the real "end of the world" is coming, all I am really going to want is a place with a bar and a good view. I don't want to survive that. Just get me nice and numb before the 500 MPH burning winds strip the flesh from my bones and leave nothing but a shadow on the wall.

Taking cover in a bunker while the state/country around you is fused into glass doesn't sound like survival - more like death row without an easy way out. South Pacific/Atlantic seems a bit better. At least you can enjoy spectacular sunsets as the radioactive dust clouds approach.

When my girl and I realized we were already planning to be together on the final day, we just sort of looked at each other, shrugged, and both said "you know, I am ok with that."

Super-Orion. With all the nukes going off everywhere else, a little extra fallout and EMP isn't going to matter anyway. Payload's big enough to establish a small colony for you and your friends on the moon or Mars.

You know not everyone believes this right? And business will go about as usual on the days leading up and on that day? I've only heard "internet" people really take this seriously.

And not for nothing, but welcome to being a kid in the 70s and 80s. You left for school every day wondering if the bomb was going to be dropped. Forget nice awesome places to hide out; you were shown where your local Fallout shelters were.

That's not me farking with you, Gen X grew up thinking today could be your last day.

We were going to be in Paris for December 21st this year but after hearing bullshiat we are just going to the mountains and took a trip to NY two weeks ago before the storm.

The mountain trip was my idea, since we have a stockspiled farm built into the side of a hill with a passage to cave. Screw all these well known places, they are the first place everyone will go.

Anytime someone mentions the end of the world, they talk about "survival". What part of THE END they don't understand? If people survive, then it's not the end. Only a major inconvenience.
