13. I know someone who was really wrapped up in the rapture thing
in college. One time during the night they cleared everyone off his dorm floor to the next floor and someone stood at the end of the hall and blew a trumpet, then went to the next floor. The guy got up and looked all around and thought the rapture had happened and he was the only one left behind.

14. Here's some 9th of Av history...
Calamities on 9 Av


* In 1290, the signature of the edict by King Edward I expelling the Jews from England
* The burning of the Talmud in 1242
* The declaration of the Crusades by Pope Urban II in 1095
* The Alhambra decree was put into effect, leading to the Jewish expulsion from Spain in 1492
* The First World War started in 1914
* The first killings at Treblinka took place in 1942
* The AMIA Bombing (Asociacin Mutua Israelita Argentina) by Arab terrorists on July 18, 1994 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which killed 86 and wounded more than 120.

We'll have to wait and see if anything substantive happens today besides ol' george going on vacation.
