Time To Live !!

COMSTOCK TOWNSHIPThey jumped off the bridge into the Kalamazoo River to celebrate that the world did not end. But that spontaneous celebration resulted in the apparent drowning of a 18-year-old Kalamazoo youth. Two hours later, Jordan Skinner-Knapp was standing in the parking lot of Comstock’s Merrill Park. Still wet, he was thinking about his friend, Anthony Alexander Johnson, who was swept away in the river’s current. Jordan, 15, said he and a group of five friends went to Merrill Park on Saturday, the day the world was suppose to end according to a highly publicized prediction by evangelist Harold Camping. Jordan said they told Johnson to not go into the water because he said he couldn’t swim well.

Tough to say who had a worse Rapture day…the 18 year old who died jumping off a bridge to celebrate not dying? Or the dude who spent his life’s savings of $140,000 on pamphlets and picket signs and quit his job standing in Times Square as life just kept on happening?

As he stood in Times Square in New York surrounded by onlookers, Fitzpatrick, 60, carried a Bible and handed out leaflets as he waited for Judgment Day to begin. [...]

When the hour came and went, he said: “I do not understand why …,” as his speech broke off and he looked at his watch.

“I do not understand why nothing has happened.”

Tough call. On the one hand you’re dead. On the other hand you’re pretty fucking pathetic and are now standing penniless and jobless in the middle of the worst place on Earth while an angry mob screams at you. No winner’s there. It’s a great day to be a sane, level-headed normal human being I guess.

PS- I love the dude in the video with his heart bleeding about people not getting their donations back for the Rapture. Like he’s making some noble video standing up for all the idiots who handed money over to the emaciated 90 year old bum on the street corner holding a Jesus sign blabbering about the world ending. The way I see it everyone got what was coming to them in the end. Except this kid that died obviously because that shit is pretty tragic.
