The best rapture is about 30 years old.

Well, I don't know if it's really the law, but that's what I tell my Year 5 students when they start to do the copy and paste thing...

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

Too big a line-up at Homeland Security or the fact that all the participants were naked?

CNN has just said 2% are to be spared. This includes members of all sailing and cruising forums.

We need to actively get more people to join this forum. The goal for 17:59 is a 50 fold increase.....

I would hope that just for now... the moderators do approve spammers, pirates, and other degenerates. You can remove them if there is a tomorrow.


Otherwise... all the members prior to the campaign MUST BE SAVED... as we will be the best 2% of our forum....

Assuming that the 2% is also going to apply to our forum......


Mods.... are you up for this?

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

So I guess I will not be homesteading their lovely sloop...

My dear... it all starts at 18:00 depending on where you are.. so that is why it is starting first in New Zealand and moving forward. If you are on the West Coast of the US (like your profile states) then you still have a bit more then 5 and a half hours....

so the time to check is past 18:00...

If they are not on the boat... and they were not spammers.... then....

you have a new boat...... as they were probably some of the chosen... and taken up......

Hope this helps to understand a very complex subject......
