“Use Herlium Dexping.”
“The rapture is actually in october.”
“stanlee - the decimal place thing was actually the problem with that Mars lander that crashed, not the rapture.
“The Mars Lander problem was NASA contractors forgetting to convert to/from metric/US. Probably the same thing here. The real Rapture when converted properly lands on July 42nd, 19588 PA (Post-Apocalypse).”
“I bet he forgot to factor in all of the leftover bits of time that are converted to leap year days. A few millenia of that equals a good bit of time. I don't know if he was counting from the cruxifiction or from the beginning. I read in one of hte articles a mention of 11,000years. Let's start with that, so 11,000/4 = 2750 leap years, which means an extra 2750 days in there / 365 days which means this party isn't really getting started for another 7.5 years or so. Hmmm, that's strikingly close to the 7 years of bad stuff that happens in the book of Revelations. Coincidence?”
“The Mars Lander problem was NASA contractors forgetting to convert to/from metric/US.
The only thing I didn't understand about this is why the contractor was doing the calcs in the US system anyway. Did they go to school in the 19th century? Geez, get with the program, guys.”
“Damn good question, but I think the end result of this was that everything since has been metric. Now we just gotta get the rest of the nation on board with the rest of the world.”
one of the hiking/climbing (for CO 14ers) guidebooks that pretty much everyone in CO owns has a section in it titled "In Defense of Feet" that argues AGAINST the metric system.”
“The metric system is French and gay.”
“we had a brownout while at the bar... so it's starting...”

“Not likely. Rapture is for the righteous.
TT is for the lame.”
“Hahaha YOu just called yourself lame! :)”
“My knees hurt.”
“Raptured?...No. Ruptured? well.....”
“What did you rupture ST?”
“Toe to toe
Dancing very slow
Wall to wall
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in Rapture
Back to back
And a wild attack
Face to face
And it's finger popping
Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture”
