Harold Camping, the radio preacher who predicted the rapture would occur at 5:59 p.m. on May 21, is "mystified" and "a little bit bewildered" that the event did not take place, according to a board member of Camping's Family Radio International who has spoken with his wife. The 89-year-old preacher does not plan to issue a statement Monday. The board member, Tom Evans, said he believes he public is owed an apology. Robert Fitzpatrick, who spent his life savings on rapture advertising and was profiled in The Daily Beast, told ABC News, "I can't tell you what I feel right now. Obviously, I haven't understood it correctly because we're still here."
Yeah, I'm mystified too...that anyone would fall for that...

November 15, 1952 – May 20, 2011 Here in Florida. Besides being a wrestler, he also made a rap-style album, on one song dissing Hulk Hogan (who also lives in Florida and I got to meet at the Renaissance Festival many years ago - and man, is he enormously tall in person!) for making a telephone commercial.

He has more than 250 clients who are paying up to $135 (£83) to have their pets picked up and cared for after the rapture.
They would be disappointed twice, he told the Wall Street Journal. "Once because they weren't raptured and again because I don't do refunds."
Amen brother!! hahahaha...

The CDC got people's attention Wednesday when it posted "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse" online. "If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation." The blog post was a gag meant to highlight the center's actual emergency plans, for things like hurricane; it was, nevertheless, a huge hit, with both the original blog post and the cached version crashing due to traffic.

Which begs the question…why bother. Suicide is a consensual crime & only hurts the person who does it.
So let the sonofabitch off himself and save the taxpayer's money.

Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour leader Ed Miliband both said the demise of Osama Bin Laden during a raid on his Pakistani compound earlier this month, had made the world a safer place without him and it was a significant step in the fight against global terrorism.
But questions have been asked about the legality of the US special forces mission after it emerged, contrary to initial claims by the White House, that although its operatives came under sustained fire Bin Laden was not armed at the time he was shot.
Seriously, how many of the people in the twin towers and the 4 airplanes were armed??...seriously, what kind of stupid bullshit is that!!
So I call a company that will go un-named (Suntrust Investment Services - whoops!) to place a trade (on which they make money) and after pushing a button, and another button, get the following:
ring, ring, ring, ring…ring, ring, ring…ring…etc.etc…ring, ring, ring…”We’re sorry, there’s no answer, goodbye” CLICK - WTF!!!
There’s no answer…at 2:30 in the afternoon…and who’s fault is that???
Goodbye - click...

Well, he’s finally gone, and good riddance. Too bad they didn’t get him in the 90s when it would probably have made a big difference.
Unfortunately, at this stage, I don’t think it will change our daily lives - we’ll still be getting asshole inspections at the airport, etc.
But, still, a job well done by the Navy Seals.
