2012 Doomsday Quiz: Will You Survive?

Updated on August 8, 2012

Are you ready for my quiz?

Are you looking forward to 2012? We've been hearing about it since the 1990's. Well, your wait is almost over. The end of the world is almost here!

The frenzy has already begun. Birds have been falling out of the sky. We've had those tantalizing crop circle teasers and pesky solar flares for years. And to think it all began so long ago when the Mayas leaked the date for the cataclysm.

Before the big doomsday, make sure you are at the top of your game. Do you know the name of the planet that is going to crash into us? Have you brushed up on your ancient Mayan reading requirements? Do you even know where you should be when the countdown is up?

You should take the quiz below to see how prepared you are for the coming doom. Then keep reading to find out the essentials for 2012.

End of the World Survival Guide

The info you need to survive disasters and other end of the world problems that could arise. Buy it and stick it in the closet. Forget about it completely until November when things start going wacky. Then read it in the car as you evacuate the burning pile of rubble that was once your town. It would make good kindling for a fire to keep away the rabid bunnies that will begin attacking as soon as the poles switch alignment.

Due to the lack of experienced trumpeters, the end of the world has been postponed for three weeks.

Yummy Dehydrated Food - Food Supply for 1 Year

Hiding out in the basement from mutant zombies always makes me hungry. I especially build up an appetite after I have been chased by killer robots.

Having this food supply that will last for a year is a great idea. Especially since the nuclear blast left all the veggies in the garden radioactive.

I might buy it just so I don't have to go to the grocery store at all next year. They eat this stuff in space all the time.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Official Anthem of 2012 - It will get stuck in your head any time someone says 2012.

"It's The End Of The World As We Know It" by R.E.M.

Left of west and coming in

a hurry with the furys breathing down your neck. Team

by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.

Look at that low playing. Fine, then. Uh oh,

overflow, population, common food, but it'll do to Save

yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs,

listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and

the revered and the right, right. You vitriolic,

patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty

psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Where to be in December 2012 - Sacred Mountains and UFOs

The tiny village of Bugarach, France has been inundated with New Age and UFO hunting tourists. Why are New Age groupies flocking to this town at the foot of the mountain Pic de Bugarach? Because they think it will be the only place on earth that will survive Armageddon.

Why this random mountain? Because it is thought to be an alien parking lot where ET’s are hanging out waiting for the world to croak.

The peak earned fame for several reasons. It was Jules Verne’s entrance to the centre of the earth and supposedly inspired Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Better book your December 2012 spot in this village soon. The mayor is threatening to call in the army to keep the tourists away from this so called “sacred mountain.”

Mayan Calendar or Giant Pizza Stone

For decades scientists have been puzzling over the meaning on this ancient Mayan stone.

Actually, it is just a pizza stone decorated to look pretty. All the lettering and carving is just a toppings list.

Survival Essentials

If you are going to make it past the end of the world, you are gonna need a survival kit. This one has all you would need for 2 people for 3 days. It would be a perfect kit if you need to evacuate in a hurry.

When the aliens knock on your door, you can grab this as you sneak out the back window. Plus it has straps so it won't fly off your back as the black hole sucks in your neighborhood.

What secrets does this Mayan statue know? (Dentistry obviously isn't one of them)
