    My daddy told me this a few months ago, and I figured that since it was the end of the world I might as well post it.
    " when I (my dad) was in college, there was this friend of mine who liked nothing better than to party. He never studied, never did his housework, and was rude to his family. His parents told him that, being rapturists, they would get taken up and he would be left behind. He never listened, however, and kept going his merry way. So his family hatched out a scheme.
    " when the kid got home one evening, he found the house utterly empty. The water was running in the sink, food on the stove, all in all looking as if someone had just forgotten everything. On the ground were piles of clothes, looking as if they had just fallen off whoever had been wearing them. The young man was terrified, and thought 'oh no! The rapture has happened and I didn't make the cut!' "

    As far as I know, the guys family finally relented and showed themselves. But it was a good revenge, non?

    That's cute. I read somewhere on Facebook that someone was going to leave empty clothes laying around as if they had just been wearing them also. Personally, if God decides to pull me away to heaven (or hell) I hope he has the decency to not make me go naked. [​IMG]

    Yah, I was worried today that if the rapture did happen, I'm not nearly in good enough shape to go up there...Then again, I'm a catholic and I don't believe in that stuff...[​IMG]

    About 22 years ago when my DS was around 8-10 years old, he layed out on the floor the clothes he'd been wearing, hid himself, and waited for me to find his empty clothing. [​IMG] He's always had a great sense of humor. Foiled his prank, though, since the thought never crossed my mind he'd been raptured without me, cuz I know I'm goin! [​IMG]
    He should have pranked his dad. [​IMG]
