I'm happy. Though a world trip to visit all the apocalyptic destruction would have been cool too...

Also did you read the article about the Family Radio employees booking appointments for this week, next week, etc? Such conviction!

The people who thought up the "I'll adopt and care for your pets after the rapture" Insurance Program have made out like bandits...

You guys are missing the point! Everyone deserving of automatic salvation has been raptured... oh, let me see -- nobody's gone!! :rolleyes:

;D

Next time one of these stories takes hold, I will make an end of the world mead recipe, designed to be shared when the one following that catches on. These seem to pop up every 5 to 7 years, from what I remember. Of course the mother of all of 'em will be this 2012 date - so that's gotta be a really special recipe!

How's about this, no recipe or theme other than aging - we age until whenever the next apocalypse is (no tiny fringe cults either, just the big ones!).

That sounds like a really good idea. I might be a silent partner in that, I still have no idea how technically challenging the chocolate group brew's gonna be for exchange purposes :)

Or how about this -- a "Left Behind" theme mead for those of us still on earth after May 21st? ;D

Although I can laugh, I'm not poking fun or ridicule. Harold Camping has done this before, predicted Judgment Day will come in 1994. You'd think he would have learned the first time. I don't think he's a huckster like the Bakers/PTL, Jimmy Swaggert, and other noteworthy folk, at least, not according to the reports that have been surfacing so far.

I have a firm belief that irreverent humor is the best remedy for the excesses of this kind of thing. I used to be a ministerial canidate at Olivet Nazarene College/University, and in my day, there were a good number of us who were devotees of the old Wittenburg Door, a sort of Mad Magazine Christian publication, kind of between a magazine and a newsletter, bad typewriter fonts, poor editing with obvious typos, and all. Absolutely hilarious. Mike Yaconellli and co would have been tasteful and polite, then let it rip.

Hehe -- Ancient Joe's CW mead would be a good end times recipe. Quick, easy to make, and drinkable almost right away. A good mead for the End Times, the tribulations to follow? Something high octane?

Bochet is when you caramelize (burn) the honey first. There's a couple interesting threads from a few months ago if you can get the search engine to cooperate.
