Hey, isn't the world supposed to end tomorrow?

1. I am looking forward to an easier
commute into work tomorrow!

3. Again?
I'm surely not rapture-worthy myself but I was looking forward to the disappearance of the most obnoxious repukes a few weeks ago and nothing happened... :shrug:

Jesus is coming, quick look busy. :-)

15. This one isn't a rapture thing
Conservative scholars and pundits, including Bernard Lewis, are anticipating a possible Iranian strike (maybe even nuclear) against Israel. Tomorrow being the date of Mohammed's ascension to heaven and their own tea-leaf reading of current events has convinced them something big is coming. I'm sure they're as giddy as the Rapturists about it.

25. I agree - that is serious
Somehow I got the impression that the religious schizophrenics were wrapped up in it though, which reduces the credibility for me.

35. Yikes
I didn't know that, thanks for the update. The pseudo-religious, psychotic Armageddonists are at the controls in some of the most dangerous places in the world and they all have itchy trigger fingers. Blowing things up to prove their god has the bigger penis seems to be what they live (and die) for. Anything is possible.

39. Seriously, though
I don't know how much weight you can put on a conjunction of a high holy day and some overwrought rhetoric that the Iranians have been making since forever, no matter the pedigree of the bobbleheads who divined it. Conservadroids are getting a bit frantic with their Iranian doom-mongering, since the window of public acquiescence to another one of Bush's patented preemptive wars may be closing.

5. It better.
I've taken out huge bank loans, remortgaged my house and pawned the family silver so that I can blow all the cash on a final night of legendary debauchery.

If the world doesn't end tomorrow, I'm in serious trouble.

6. It was supposed to be tomorrow.
But world events didn't quite fit their expectations, so I'm sure they'll just change the date rather than face the fact that they're nuts.

7. It can't end tomorrow!
I've got a Doctor's appointment Wednesday at the VA, do you know how hard it is to get one of those? They'll just have to wait until Thursday to end the World.

20. It's easier to prove Bigfoot exists than it is to get a good VA appt time
"I'd like to make an appointment," I say.

"How's Thursday sound?"

"Great!" I say with amazement.

"Okay. That's in the third week of November." Then a beat. "In 2007."

It's not really that bad, but I'm not far off.

26. Why? I forgot about tomorrow and just did 5 loads......
so here I sit, with all the clean towels and bedding....for what? Well, I sure as hell am not going to dust and vac before Wednesday. I may even get crazy and wait til Thursday to clean the house. Now I'm going to call and make dinner reservations for tonight, at a restaurant I only go to every few years, because of the cost and the outrageously high cholesterol menu.

13. Some of us in another thread agreed the other day that, if this IS
the Rapture, we're looking forward to all of the "Righteous" going elsewhere and leaving us alone.

Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 03:32 PM by KansDem
You think, "yeah, right...that's cute" but then you find it annoying. That's the way I feel about all this rapture-ready divel...



Rap-ture Reddy!

Get set, get ready, here come Rap-ture Reddy.
Their talk is steady, always Rap-ture Reddy.

They think the world is full of rats,
They drive the rest of us all bats,
They're in our face like rabid gnats,
With Bush, they're Rap-ture Reddy.
