Title: May 21 - What are you planning ot do?
Post by: Slowbrew on May 20, 2011, 08:41:45 PM
Somebody has to ask this question.

I'm pretty sure, one way or another, I'll be here come May 22nd.  I'll be cleaning my Mom's house before she moves to a retirement community in Omaha.  8^)

If the rapture actually happens... what will you be doing on Sunday?

I personally will be arming up and getting ready for some gun play.   ;D

Well, given that I survive, I guess I'll be being chased by zombies.  A lot of people are laughing at this prediction like it's a joke; this is how I feel about all religious beliefs.  Why is this particular instance so damn funny?  Have you guys actually put some thought into any sort of religious beliefs out there?  It's all one big comedy show to me.

Cheers, I'll be brewing and drinking homebrew on Sunday.

Well if the rapture happens I'm going into work since it'll be a National disaster and I'm on the roster to respond. If I'm taken WTF will I care.

Huh, first I've heard of it. I'm brewing. Would be a shame if I was taken and missed the 30min hop addition.  :-\

I plan to brew 5/21.  I might be brewing on 5/22 also, depending on how much I brew today and tomorrow.  The rapture?  Hilarious.  But if there is some natural disaster I will either be cleaning up or doing whatever I would have done otherwise, but also listening to the news.

Remember, the prediction* is for rolling earthquakes at 6PM local time, where ever you happen to be.  My brother in law is in Jakarta, so he'll let me know what happens.  Then we'll have time to get ready.

*By "prediction" I mean made up nonsense.

I'll be heading to heaven if the rapture comes. 

I'd like to know who leaked the schedule though.

If not I'll be SCUBA diving at Pu`uhonua O Honaunau.

Enjoy the dive!

In Iowa, diving involves a lot of "hey! look at that dirt cloud!  Where am I?  Which way is up?  AAAAAAAAH!... Oh, hold on, never mind, I'm okay."

I've been invited to a couple of looting parties, but I doubt I'll go.  They have their own facebook pages.
Here's a nice flow chart to let you know if you'll be staying or going:

I'm going to the U2 Concert in Denver. Supposedly it will happen at 6:30 pm. Concert starts at 7:00 Hmmm.
Gonna tailgate quite a bit just in case. I'll be using the beer as muscle relaxant just in case...

I'll be returning home from judging the BUZZ Off Competition. The wife and I will have dinner and a pint or two. Rapture? You have to be farkin' kidding me. Just another doomsday scenario. I've been having a little fun with my coworkers over this scam.

In the words of the immortal Jim Morrison. "Let's break on through ot the other side"  ;)

I am with you brother, although I just recently learned of my danger.

Perhaps my recent search for some Hood hops for the weekend session are in vain?

Guess that pile of Denny's favorite might go to waste?

Imma gonna celebrate tonight just in case.

Cheers.

The same guy had predicted that the world would end in 1994.  Had a math error. 

Having lived through many end of the world predictions, I am not too concerned.  The whole Y2K stuff had more veracity than this.

what did they buy? apparently nobody told them you can't take it with you. and I'm thinking that the type of folks that think they're going to be plucked up to heaven didn't blow there money on a big, long party. but then what do I know?
Title: Re: May 21 - What are you planning ot do?
Post by: majorvices on May 21, 2011, 02:29:58 PM
its not that they bought stuff per se, but that they quit their jobs and budgeted their money to last them until May 21st precisely because you can't take it with you. The people I heard on the radio last night were petitioning in Fla and living out of a hotel room and had a baby due in June with no home, money or job.

I heard an interview with one guy who had spent his life savings buying billboards to warn people.

It's moot at this point, anyway.  It was supposed to have started last night at 11 PM PDT with a massive earthquake in New Zealand.  That didn't happen.

just saw an article on the NPR website about a guy who started a company to take care of your pets after you've ascended in the rapture. don't want them abandoned during the 5 months of bad times, do you? apparently he's gotten about $35 grand in contracts - no refunds.

This is why I've gotten into watching and following the news.  What we humans get up to in real life is stranger than fiction. I prefer to think for my self- not to have some half-baked holy roller telling me what to think and how to act.

That's the one that broke the camel. Talking about the absurdity of this is one thing. But being critical of people's faith is something else entirely. Especially since 99.9% of religious people thought this was a load of crap. And there are people of faith on the forum so lets have some respect.
