Family Radio founder Harold Camping has been terrifying the heck out of people with his prediction that May 21, 2011 is Judgment Day. In fact, he's so confident that the end of the world is upon us that if you ask him what's going to happen on May 22 if the Rapture doesn't take place, likely he'll give you this answer:
It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen. I don’t even think about those kind of issues. The Bible is not — God is not playing games. I don’t even want to think about that question at all. It is going to happen.
Well, in the off-chance that Camping's predictions are, ahem, wrong, here are 10 ways he could spend May 22.
1. Start working on his next end of the world prediction. After all, isn't the third time supposed to be a charm?
2. Return the $2 that I gave to the lady on the subway with the "It's the end of the world!" sign. Surely, I'm not the only person who made a donation to his worthy cause?
3. Hire an excellent press person for when he's hounded by the media.
4. Arrange for someone to take down all the Judgment Day billboards and recycle the fliers. (Or perhaps he can store them until it's time for his next prediction.)
5. Apologize to gay people.
6. Apologize to people who sold all their worldly possessions in anticipation of the big day.
7. Find someone/something to blame for his gross miscalculation -- surely, he won't accept any blame himself.
8. Professional help. Professional help. Professional help.
10. Run. Hide. Repeat. There's no way to recover from this one.
Do you think the world is going to end on May 21?
