Apocalypse Survival Pods Go Up For Sale As Mayan Doomsday Nears

In order to survive the upcoming apocalypse all you’ll have to do is sit on your couch. But if you really want to be safe you can buy some apocalypse survival pods.

According to Sky News, a 45-year-0ld Chinese farmer and furniture making is selling apocalypse survival pods, dubbed Noah’s Arks, in order to ensure your survival on December 21, 2012. The tsunami-proof survival pods can withstand tsunamis and earthquakes according to their creator Liu Qiyuan.

Qiyuan said:

“The pod won’t have any problems even if there are 1,000-meter-high waves… it’s like a ping pong ball, its skin may be thin, but it can withstand a lot of pressure.”

The apocalypse survival pods are a little expensive (about $50,000) but Qiyuan said that they are big enough for 30 people. Qiyuan said that the pods are designed to fit 14 people but in an emergency, like the Mayan apocalypse, the pods are capable of keeping 30 people alive for two months.

Qiyuan also notes that you can survive in Noah’s Ark anywhere in the world. If a giant tsunami wave carries you down to the south pole you could still live “for four months in the pod … without freezing, or even feeling slightly cold.”

NASA, the White House, and several other agencies have released statements and videos in an attempt to calm fears as the Mayan apocalypse nears. Still, panic is starting to spread around the world.

Do you think Qiyuan is going to find customers for his apocalypse survival pods? Do you think the world is going to end on December 21, 2012?
