It's 6 PM Pacific time I think. The family radio site is not working..lol.

I'm wrong. It was 6 PM on the pacific rim so it was 11 PM Friday night.

You dodged a bullet, Mike. You'd have been bored stiff up there. ;)

That's called self generated rapture. The best kind. ;)

I knew that I wouldn't be one of those that flew away. No offense, but figured many of you on BPL would still be here with me. You know who you are : )

However, let's all continue to walk the earth.

Yar Doug but remember that when you are sold downriver totally by Dante that you end up needing a good down bag and an Expelled Down-mat Ultra. I for one think about that sign I used to see in cars. Revised for hiking with True Believers it says" Be prepared to take their gear if the hiker vanishes"

"I spent my savings"

That's okay, god's not into earthly wealth

"cheated on my wife"

god forgives minor transgressions

"told all my friends to F off"

god knows your friends, no issue there whatsoever

"loaded up the credit cards"

Are you crazy? Not even god screws with the banks. Who do you think financed creation!?! And on very favorable terms.....

The Tiger
By William Blake
1757-1827

TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder and what art
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand and what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And water'd heaven with their tears,
Did He smile His work to see?
Did He who made the lamb make thee?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Relax, Ken. You'll find it a pretty convivial crowd where you're headed.

The exact opposite of the cold chicks and warm beer you'll find upstairs.

Raptures are scary on 05/23/2011 15:51:55 MDT Print View

The thing that scared me the most about the rapture was that they hunt in pairs. Glad I didn't see one.
