end of the world tonight at 6pm
 
.. discuss the hailarity of this

Re: end of the world tonight at 6pm
 
Which time zone!?!?!

Will the rapture be making its way around the globe 1 time zone at a time taking exactly an hour, then moving on to the next one? Or is it set to an American timezone? If its set to an american time zone, does that mean that the rapture actually will take place on the 22nd for our Australian friends?

Or has it already began down there?


This entire thing is just plain ole stupid to me. Bah.

you've beat me to it. It's nearly 17:00 here in the UK, it's well into sunday in places like the far east. This is where the bible is starting to show it's age in my opinion; i doubt they had very much knowlege of things like time zones, after all very few people travelled around very far and if they did then it would take them such a long time that they probably wouldn't notice any difference in time, and of course portable clockwork timepieces didn't exist back then so it's not as if you would have noticed a difference in local time. What exact time zone is "god" supposed to have selected for this so-called end of the world? My guess is that it's going to be eastern seaboard time, since that just so happens to be where this "theory" started...

This morning when I work up at 6:30am after 4 hours sleep I wanted the end to come sooner then I could damn well sleep! haha

At 6pm I'm going to a damn barbicue so it better not end....I'm STARVING!

As we're not supposed to discuss religion on this board,

I'll just say I have a ticket to see Rush in June. I'll worship Neil, Geddy and Alex.

Maybe they'll play Xanadu and Freewill.

I might as well bag that gig I had tonight in light of the upcoming festivities.

Well like most cool and exciting things that happen on Friday nights, I was too tired and too poor to take part. Damn I hate missing the good stuff.

OK. Help me out a bit. Who said the world is supposed to end tonight?

Well, that's it, it's past 6:00 in Drummerworld time zone, & my world just ended. The dog ate my last sausage, dammit! It was the best one too, pork & apple with a sprinkling of white pepper. I'm off to mess with my new rack that now doesn't exist.


Oooo, come to think of it, nor do guitarists & lead singers, whoohooo!

I'm having a rapture party tonight at 5:30. At 6:00, we will be drinking Kool-Aid and eating (guests' choice of) angel food cake or devil's food cake. After that, we get our drank on...

Obviously, everyone with half a brain knows that this isn't going to happen, but it makes a good excuse to throw a theme party!

Welcome to Rapture! Now where are my plasmids?

Hmm.., I went on a pre-doomsday yard sale run, locally, and some foul sold me a kick pedal for 3 bucks! The rest of the set had already departed -safely I hope!

(Will be perfect for that future tambourine or what-have-you extra foot pedal, the thing can be fitted as reverse, apparently... even more fun!)

We should all take some pants,shirts and socks, and put little piles around town to make it look as if people dissapeared

What a total rip. A new day dawns and here I am......still stuck in this hell hole!!!!

Alas, just another let down in a long list of let downs from this particular deity, I feel. I need a new false hope. I hear that sci. fi. writer has a great con going on. I may have to check him out. :-)

Wow!!.. just imagine if we could persuade all the women in the world to do this as well. Just image what fun we could all have if the world didn`t end.

A true nerd would make his own. I know it can be done, I've seen it in a movie. All you need is a computer, a picture of a woman, an electrical malfunction and a bra on your head, from memory.

The bra on my head reminds me of my first year of University...

Sorry to all those that missed out. You can have imaginary 'nerd points'.

Yeah? Funnily enough, it reminds me of last night...........

No need to show me the door everyone.....I'll leave now of my own accord. ;-)

Sorry if the transmission is a bit faint. The connection here in heaven isn't what you'd expect. Just letting you know that the Rapture has come. Hope you future hell dwellers are going okay.

That's really clever.

However, why would the connection in HEAVEN be bad? Are you sure you took the "UP" escalator?

That's what I was wondering ... it's very patchy but there's worse! A lot of people playing the harp (admittedly a tricky instrument) and the only drummer here is Keith Moon but he's always too busy blowing up toilets to play. Must go, reception is breaking up ...
