Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

My insurance doesn't cover it. Says it's an "ACT OF GOD". Lost out again.
On the other hand, ya'll know how much I love "end of the world" threads, so let's keep it going until everyone else sorta poofs away and we're all left speechless with our mouths hangin' open!

Or maybe no one in this forum is "chosen".
I have chosen to sail. If the world ends, I'll put in another reef and comtemplate heaving to. Bollocks to the lubbers.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

Well it's 4:05 pm now here in China, and I haven't been raptured yet... Guess I'm not a chosen one, or maybe I get picked up on the NEXT end of the World.

Logically it will be UTC, also known as GMT, or Greenwich Mean Time - so called becasue we all know that Greenwich is at the centre of the earth. And that's just one more reason why the entire world bows to the English.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

Well, it's after noon here, and HWMO is still sleeping soundly. I don't want to spend my last day in bed though - need to wake him and get out on the boat...

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

I seem to recall that the last time the world received a "make-over", a big boat was involved.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

I get confused sometimes on this. Are the "winners" the ones that get taken or are they the ones that get left behind and get the run of the planet?

I have my eye on some new boat toys!

I was not aware of this happening today. So I am a little unprepared. Now that I know I an taking precautions. Does anyone know if grib files or radar will pick up the end of the world. I am planning on sailing around the end or if I can out sail it. Any pointers or a lat long of where the end of the world is would be greatly appreciated.

Re: END OF THE WORLD !!@!!!

Got a chuckle out of this from a BBC story on the subject:


Quote:
An atheist and entrepreneur from North Hampshire, Bart Centre, is enjoying a boost in business for Eternal Earth-bound Pets, which he set up to look after the pets of those who believe they will be raptured.

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."
