In case of the Rapture....

According to Fox News a new website has been set up so that people swept up to heaven in the Rapture can send e-mails to loved ones left behind on Earth.

YouveBeenLeftBehind.com promises to alert up to 62 people exactly six days after the event that, according to the Bible, signals the beginning of Armageddon, "You've Been Left Behind gives you one last opportunity to reach your lost family and friends for Christ," the site promoting the service says.


Final e-mails from vanished subscribers will be triggered when three of the site's five Christian staffers fail to log in for six days in a row. The site, the brainchild of Mark Heard, charges $40 a year for the service, which also includes 150 megabytes of encrypted storage space, recommended for financial information.


"In the encrypted portion of your account you can give them access to your banking, brokerage, hidden valuables and powers of attorneys," the site says. There won't be any bodies, so probate court will take seven years to clear your assets to your next of kin. Seven years, of course, is all the time that will be left," it explains. "So, basically the Government of the Antichrist gets your stuff, unless you make it available in another way."

Well there you have it. For a mere $40 your unsaved family and/or friends will have access to important documents should you ascend into heaven. A veritable bargain I’m sure!

Maybe I am overly cynical, but here is another way of looking at it:

If 3 of the site's 5 staffers fail to log in for 6 days in a row, it means they will have had a week's head start to clear out all those bank accounts before anyone finds out.

I still Armageddon and the rapture less plausible than 60% of people posing as christians being tempted by the possibilities of fraud and theft.

Jams, the basic error everyone is making here is that the Tribulation comes first. There ain't no escape, people. lol

I will rather get rid of all the property and organize a boozing the likes of which where hitherto unseen. But this needs a prior warning. Does $40 include such warning?

jams o donnell said...

That's a good plan Snoopy. Alas it does not say if the warning is included. To be quite honest I am probably going to be one of the left behind!

Red Wine drinkers can now wipe that wine off their smile!

Wine Wipes are an innovative new product created especially for red wine drinkers who fall victim to stain left on their teeth and smile from drinking red wine.

Mary Ferguson was a 32 year old self professed lover of red wine. Unfortunately for Mary, red wine returned that love in the form of a nasty red wine film on her teeth and mouth. But she never let it bother her.. until the night she met Jack.

Sparks flew as Jack bellied up to the bar and ordered a big bodied bottle of red wine. This was love at first sight. Jack and Mary drank and danced the night away. And then, she did the unforgivable… She smiled. Her once pearly white teeth had morphed into a red stained filthy looking mouth. Jack tried to look away but couldn’t contain the disgust on his face. Mary quickly excused her self to the bathroom and maniacally attempted to scrub the wine off her mouth, but it was to no avail. Mary walked out of the bathroom with stained teeth and a newly chaffed tongue. By the time she returned, Jack had vanished, and left nothing for Mary but the bill… If she had only had a Wine Wipe.

Mary’s dilemma is common tale. Most red wine drinkers fall victim to this social fopah. Whether you call it ‘tannin teeth, malbec mouth, red badge of courage, or wine tattoo’, most red wine drinkers have experienced the unattractive dark film that red wine stain leaves on their smile. They have either excepted purple teeth as part of the experience or begrudgingly switched to Chardonnay… Until Now.

Wine Wipes are an innovative new product that will change the way people look at you while you when you drink red wine. Wine Wipes quickly and easily remove red wine stain with a gentle orange blossom flavor that won’t interfere with the wine tasting experience, making Wine Wipes the perfect pairing to any glass of red wine,

Wine Wipes are manufactured by Borracha LLC, located in San Luis Obispo County, California. Borracha creates innovative products for social drinkers while using a portion of the proceeds to support water projects in the developing world.
