    The Final Countdown

    No, not the song either. How is everybody going to spend the next two and a half days before the "rapture" hits Saturday evening? For me it's kind of fitting Jesus would come back to Earth the day of my best friends bachelor party.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: The Final Countdown

    id already forgotten about this. i saw that someone bought a couple billboard spots as you come into DSM from ames. they bought a regular spot as well as the new electronic billboard. if god said that he would come back and we wouldn't know when, how does some guy do math problems to figure it out? not trying to make this religious, i just think he's a crackpot

    Re: The Final Countdown

    Sounds like the Heaven's Gate guys and the Hale-Bopp comet to me...

    Heaven's Gate (religious group) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anyway, I think a righteous party is required. From what I've heard, only 3% of people get selected to go to the rapture, so I'm likely out of that window.

    There's no doubt he's a crackpot. I mean, he says there will be a global earthquake starting at 6pm local time on May 21 that will progressively go around the globe starting in New Zealand. If God was going to destroy the world would he give a damn about time zones?


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: The Final Countdown

    I'm going to get up early, leave my pj's on my bed exactly as I'd been wearing them when I laid down, hide in the closet, and watch the hilarity ensue as my family wonders what happened.

    Thought maybe you were talking about this movie from the early 80s:

    It's worth watching. The concept is great. Execution: Not so much.
