According to my friend, the rapture will occur today at 1:50 pm Ohio time. Should I pack a jacket, or would sunscreen be more appropriate in this situation?

No need to rush because there is certain to be another "End of the world" quite soon.

I think these things are just an excuse for people to act crazy and irrational. Either that, or throw big, wild parties!

@moffittjc I have never needed any excuse to be crazy and irrational, so you can keep the end of world prophecies.

@Asylum Hey, this ins't my prophecy! I didn't even know the world was supposed to end today. I just want to make sure I'm packed and ready to go if it happens.

@moffittjc I like to plan ahead to but in this case I just want it to surprise me. Maybe I would like a days notice so I can take a shower and say goodbye to some folks.

@TiarasOceanView Are we only allowed to bring a carry-on bag with us? Or can we bring our laptops to the rapture? I would like to continue myLotting during and after the rapture.

Sorry, this post is beyond me. What kind of rapture are you talking about? Are you expecting an epiphany?

I don't know. I'm just posting what my friend told me. Apparently, the world is supposed to end today. That's why I need to know what to pack for the trip.

@JolietJake I have heard absolutely nothing about it. But now that my friend has enlightened me, it seems like I am seeing it all over Facebook now. I guess I live in a sheltered world...I never paid attention to the fact that the repute is scheduled to happen today.

Oh, ok . . . I knew there was a date, but I didn't realize there was an actual time. Well then this is going to happen before our friend's kiddie birthday party . . . hopefully the rapture will be postponed .

I'm pretty sure an exact time was never indicated. Which is why I have no idea where my friend came up with that information. Maybe it was her personal preference of time? haha

@moffittjc Whatever the time will be, I have no time to sit and wait for it to happen. I have a Saturday to enjoy . . . so I hope it comes late at night. Everyone will be sleeping then . . . wouldn't that be the ideal time for it to happen?

@much2say But it wouldn't be overly dramatic if it happened while everyone was sleeping! It's important that these things happen at the worst possible time so that everybody is extremely inconvenienced and annoyed. That makes for good rapture drama!

It may be a long trip. I would recommend eating something before the world ends. It might be a while before you can eat another snack.

@moffittjc somebody goofed. According to your information it should have ended 30 minutes ago. Of course it all may be gone...it's possible I don't really exist outside of my own mind and you are merely a figment of my imagination.

I would suggest you, personally, need to pack a Nomex suit, Jeff! I am not sure what the heat and flame resistance level is for a Nomex suit, but it will beat bare skin by a mile! Please tell me you don't believe any of this end of the world stuff that is going around! I'm telling you now, the world will end when some idiot pulls the lever to set off all the nuclear weapons still stockpiled around all the countries that say they have de-activated their nuclear arsenals! SMH!

@YrNemo I'm like you...I don't follow the news. I had no idea either. I thought maybe North Korea was going to shoot a missile at us or something. I have not asked her to explain. I don't think she believed it, I just think she was passing on information she read about or heard from somewhere else.
