Smells Like ... Opportunity

Via Instapundit, we have news of note:

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. ...

Now the nearby village is awash with New Agers, who have boosted the local economy, though their naked group climbs up to the peak have raised concerns as well as eyebrows.

Perhaps 100,000 hippies will arrive by the end-of-the-world date of Mayan doom.

I'm thinking lots of fire hoses and liquid soap ...

I know you are thinking, "Why would aliens pick these people to rescue?" Well, to be fair, the alien visitors will be expecting nudists considering what we riveted to the outsides of Pioneer 10 and 11 when we sent them into space:

Still, I have to think NASA had some scientists who were looking ahead to the possibilities of getting rid of these unproductive annoyances.

Thank you, Aliens!
