A Beijing coffee shop has been handing out mock tickets to Noah's Ark just in case the world does end. The ticket is designed like a boarding pass, with a picture borrowed from the Hollywood movie '2012' on the front, and boarding details printed on the reverse.
The ticket lists a boarding time of 12:00 of December 21, 2012 with departure from somewhere in Tibet.
Some believe 21st December 2012 is foretold as the end of the world by Mayan hieroglyphs.
NASA is so convinced the world will not end on 21 December it has already released a video titled "Why The World Didn't End Yesterday".
