The Five Swankiest Bunkers for Surviving the Mayan Apocalypse

You don't really believe the world will end tomorrow -after all, it's already December 21st in parts of the world. But if it did, some people will be ready in style! There is no dearth of state-of-the-art survival bunkers for those who want and can afford one, and some of those are built for the life of post-apocalyptic luxury, like the Vivos Underground Shelter Network.

Each shelter is within 200 miles of a major American city, and is outfitted with refrigerated storage for DNA samples and enough food, water, and fuel for an entire year. What’s more, the shelters are co-owned by their hopeful (is that the right word?) future inhabitants, so getting in on this little slice of heaven is actually quite possible for even novice doomsday preppers. You don’t even have to worry about packing -- each shelter contains a tasteful wardrobe collection, so you can rebuild civilization in style.

My guess is that the first one into the bunker closes the door and locks everyone else out. Now they have food and water for MANY years, and no other inhabitants to freak out on them after 2 days without internet access :o)
