I got a ton of stuff to do over the next few weeks. The world coming to an end on Saturday is really inconvenient for me. Can we reschedule?

I just saw an old lady driving a car with this bumper sticker: "WARNING: in case of rapture, this car will be unmanned". Given the way she was driving, an unmanned car would be an improvement.

But we have to assume, that at some point someone guesses the date correctly. Then God is like "crap, I need to reschedule the end of the earth because this kook guessed the current one". We should actually thank these crazies for getting the date pushed back!

(yes, I realize this flies in the face of omniscience, but I gotta move the joke along)

Congratulations to your son! And yes, the End of Days would be very inconvenient for you if it occurred as previously scheduled....

Does the end of the Earth have anything to do with two Hydrogen atoms colliding?

What about my extended warranty coverage after 5/21 ?

I just bought a new monitor at Best Buy , and gave in on the sales clerk's Extended Warranty Hard sell.

Got to thinking, will not be of much value after 5/21/2011. Called the store to see if I can cancel and get a refund. All ok, but the refund check will take 60-90 days.

How will I cash it . All of the bankers will be gone because of thier clean living , and the check cashing place charges 40%.

My friend made a special "Rapture" mix to listen to as the world is ending.

Looks like there was some minor rapturizing in Kansas but it didn't spread.

I'm still here, so so much for the humanist lifestyle as being religion equivalent.
