Episode Summary

Since before many of us could remember, there have been claims that the world was going to end. In this episode of Bullsh**!, Penn and Teller will take a look into these claims and predictions, From the misinterpretations of Nostradamus, to the famous and million-dollar book series: Left Behind.

Then we'll visit a couple who live in the wild woods to survive, but cannot hunt and a camp where people learn survival skills out in the woods just to survive the end of the world. These lessons turn out to be useless as they accomplish nothing.

Plus, a survivalist has linked 40 school buses into an underground shelter for a community of people to live in when the bombs start falling. The end of the world may be coming, but why bother being involved in all the bullsh**? If the world ends, then it ends. Penn and Teller explains all this Bullsh** in this End of the World episode.
