When it comes to the looming Mayan apocalypse, some people are fine with just buying some bottled water and canned goods. Others are a bit more serious, building bunkers and stocking up on ammo.
A Chinese man, however, has spent his entire life savings — ¥1million, or £100,000 or about $160,000 — to create an “ark,” which he hopes will allow him to survive the apocalypse scheduled to occur on December 21, 2012.
