If you were just about to book your summer holiday, now may not be the time – or, now may be better than ever depending on your outlook when it comes to possibly life-altering news.

No, I am not talking about the state of world politics, although if Donald Trump’s latest warning to Russia is anything to go by, we may be in for a rough ride. I am also not talking about the impending marriage of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, which will see the ‘Playboy Prince’ finally leave bachelorhood for adulthood – breaking many hopeful hearts in the process.

Instead, I am talking about the ‘Death Planet’, known scientifically as Nibiru which is supposedly heading straight for us. Now you’re probably scratching your head right now, for they didn’t teach you about Nibiru in school. The news headlines have also neglected to mention this impending doom – in their defense, they’ve been pretty busy with Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook data breach –  so, what on Earth is going on?!

Although with tensions rising with Russia, it may not be a bad idea to build a colossal bunker to keep you safe! This guy has built the largest nuclear bunker in the world and it’s pretty impressive…

Well, this news may sound like the synopsis for the latest episode of The Simpsons, but according to conspiracy theorists, it’s a very real threat which we should take seriously if we value our lives.

So this is going to need a little explaining for those of us who were oblivious that such destruction was on the cards. Pay close attention because this is how it is supposedly going to work: the moon, the sun and Jupiter (yep, a planet we’ve all heard of) are going to align with Virgo, triggering the biblical Rapture.
