Helmets, gas masks, and food to last a lifetime. All the items in this store are used in worst case scenarios, so if the end of the world is coming up, where are the panicked customers? "We have some folks come in the store, and they say what do you think about it and I don't," Roger Hunt says. Though some might believe its the end, he and his customers are not concerned. After speaking with others it becomes clear the feeling is unanimous. "I'm not really a true believer in that," says an Evansville resident. "I say don't worry about it because you don't know if you could be in a car accident or anything. You just don't know what is going to happen to you," says another Evansville resident.
Some believe the end of the world hype comes from the movies. "Probably that movie twenty twelve, yeah, I didn't like that." With yet another end of the world conspiracy, even churches are saying why worry if it's out of our hands. "People will say oh my the end is coming and so forth, but it hasn't. The bottom line is it's been over two-thousand years since our lord was here, so I don't think we have a way of knowing that," says Father Kenneth Walker of the Catholic Diocese.
One thing everyone can agree on is that we wont know until it happens, or doesn't. "Each day try to be the best you can be but otherwise, who knows," says the Father. The time is said to be five eleven a.m. Central time in case you want to set your clocks.
