According to 89-year-old radio evangelist and total nutbag Harold Camping, the Rapture, which is the official start of the end of the world, is tomorrow, May 21, 2011 at 6 p.m. (ish).
Thousands of believers have rented giant billboards and handed out tens of thousands of brochures warning people that the end is near.
According to his website, we've got one more day left before God comes down and ruins all the fun.
If you've been a bad boy or girl, there's probably no time left to repent your evil, sinful, lustful ways. There is, however, still time to party.
Tomorrow, the Tiki Bar at the Lauderdale Beachside Hotel is having a Rapture party.
A requested donation of $5 includes rum punch and a bunch of non-believers thumbing their nose at the idea of some old coot telling everyone that the world is ending.
50% of donations given to Nonbelievers Giving Aid, a charity that proves athiests can do nice things, too. No reservations needed -- just show up and have fun!
The party starts at 5:00 pm. If the world ends at 6:00, you'll have one good hour of drinking and carousing. If the end of the world doesn't come, the party will end....at midnight! Fort Lauderdale Beachside Hotel Tiki Bar 4660 North Ocean Drive, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, FL 33308
