Why don't we all just take off on Saturday without telling anyone?

Well I'm off to get my hair all cut off to be more aerodynamic for the ascension.

Wonder what they'll say if I show up for work tomorrow with no eyebrows.

fuck, I will just be getting home.

hope it doesn't make the dogs bark, i need some sleep.

:evil:


It's at noon now? Crap! I heard it starts at 6 pm. I was going to go to the gym, the cable guy's supposed to come over and upgrade my system, plus I was supposed to work for my client for a little under the table cash!

Maybe the 12 noon time is like the pre-rapture happenings. Kind of like the pre-nascar show. :?
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I've been resisting maxing out the credit card at hot topic before the world ends.


Would this be a bad time to start netflix?


Isn't the guy that started this, the same guy that wrote a book about 1994 being the end of the world?

I'm still Here. :roll: :shock: :roll: :lol:

I guess I better make all my credit card payments I was putting off.

When I refied my house this month the Notery told me don't worry about making anymore payments the rapture is this next weekend.

I said cool until I found out he was an athiest & and was part owner of the lending company. :lol:


I like the ideal of placing clothes & shoes all around maybe my lender will think it really happend. :lol:

i think i'm still here, but it's hard to be sure.

did "12:00pm" come with a time zone?

the least they could do is end the world on a nasty looking day .... to-day it's beautiful outside!

The funny thing is, if he got his information from the Bible as I thought he said he did, they didn't have time or clocks or time zones back in those days.so there is no way any specific time could have been in the prediction.

perhaps, he was able to glean "time", if there was a reference to sunrise or something like that, in a certain place?
If it's supposed to happen at "sunset" in Uzbekistan, That will have a known time for the date.

seems, though, it'd be the same time, planet wide.
so, Noon in London, 4 a.m. here, etc.........

I just checked, GMT is 4:20PM right now. Guess I slept through it. I half hoped I was better than I knew. I'm going out and see if there are any Mercedes running with the keys in them.

Yeah, basing a prophesy off a translation of a translation of a translation absolutely guarantees accuracy. It's about as stupid as the 2012 crap...the dude writing out the numbers just flat out got tired of writing and said fuck this. That's all there is to it, it's not the end of the world either. (The 2012 movie didn't suck as bad as I thought it was going to though)

Everybody knows the real threat is the huge meteor due to destroy the earth in 2025.

I am unaware of any religious significance though.

Well, that wasn't exciting at all... Guess we are still here.

I am confused as to when, exactly the "rapeture" was to happen. Was that 12:00 Pacific, Atlantic or Central standard?? Which time zone? Or is it 18:00??


In any event, us Prairie Burners are still here.

Love Rice.

All I know, is that if the Bible thumpers do not ascend today...It only proves that they are non-believers! Or..that Macho Man Randy Savage died for our sins!

Well, we're about a half hour away from the end of the world and the skies are feeling very apocalyptic here on the east coast. I can feel the anticipation of the earthquakes, floods and attack of all sorts of vermin.
My little travel bag is all packed, and I am pretty sure that I will be one of the chosen ones to be beamed up into space.
Sadly, my last meal on earth will have been a McDonald's double cheeseburger. I guess the first thing I will have to do once I get to heaven will be to take a dump. I am not proud about any of this, but at least I'll be on that train to heaven while the rest of you people will be stuck here on the hell hole we call earth.
Rapture here I come!
Adios my burner friends!

Yep, set to go here too! Got my Credence Clearwater tapes and a bag of Oreo cookies for the trip.

Haven't seen any locusts yet, but I did get bit by a mosquito a few minutes ago. I'm taking that as a sign.
