The Mayan calendar ends one week from today, on Friday, December 21, leading some to believe the end of the world is near.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports from New York City:

This is the last full weekend we'll ever have, according to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar.  So what do we do?

(New Yorker) "Couple shots of tequila and chill."

That's this New Yorker's plan, but others around the globe are scrambling to prepare for an apocalypse - from building arks in China, to hiding out in Serbian mountains, to hoarding supplies.

(New Yorker) "If they feel safe doing that, then, I mean, you know, I guess that's what they've got to do."

Come to think of it, those of us in New York and New Jersey probably should gas up.  But fears of an apocalypse for some are very real.

(New Yorkers) "Keep the faith!" // "Good luck, I hope they're wrong and we're very, very right."

For as many experts who believe the end is near, there are just as many experts who don't.
