People on all sides of the political spectrum are gearing up for an impending apocalypse, if a Texas bunker manufacturer is to be believed.

Following the election of Donald Trump, the Doomsday Clock reached two-and-a-half minutes to midnight - the closest to an apocalypse since 1953.

And Rising S Company in Murchison, 75 miles southeast of Dallas, is offering willing and able patrons livable underground bunkers.

 

The company offers shelters from a 96-square-foot abode for two to the aptly named 'Aristocrat' which can sleep 44 people and includes 10 individual master bedrooms.

That translates into approximately 1 McDonalds for every 22,000 Americans. In Canada, we have approximately 1 Tim Hortons for every 8,000 people. I guess we're pretty fond of our donuts and double doubles here! :) (For those not fluent in Canuckian, a double double is a coffee or tea with two cream two sugar).
