Since Harold Camping pronounced May 21st as the ‘End of the World’ social media has been inundated with often hilarious posts, Twitter being the main platform. The hashtag #Rapture encapsulates a meme – and maybe says more about how social media users grab onto, and promote, a theme that is likely completely irrelevant to world events, versus news or issues of greater importance. (Like Oprah’s final show!)
According to Camping’s predictions, May 21st is only the beginning of the end (phew) with the ultimate day of resolution for us sinners to be October 21st (so much for the November British Columbia municipal elections). At the time of this post, there are fewer than 24hrs hours for the chosen few (around 3% of the population) to be ‘raptured’ or drawn into a glorious heaven, while the rest of us suffer earthquakes, famine, war, pestilence and re-runs of The Bachelor.
Will the Rapture happen, most assuredly not…
However, as one who tends to spread bets – and lose most – I felt it was incumbent to publish the top five do’s and don’ts as if the Rapture was actually coming.
Top 5 Dont’s
Top 5 Does (or Do’s – is there time to learn grammar?)
