10:23 a.m. A fool and his money are soon parted …

In reference to my previous blog post ( 12:22 p.m. May / 21 ) about the evangelical mathematician Harold Camping , this little news gem gives you an idea of the money involved in this nonsense ! …

Some people actually chose not to show up at work …. Take long drives with their families to stand outside Harry’s residence … Sold all their possessions ( Which I find curious … What would ya need the money for ?!!! ) … ACTUALLY thinking … BELIEVING !!! … That the world was coming to an end !!! …

‘ As Saturday drew nearer, followers reported that donations grew, allowing Family Radio to spend millions on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RVs plastered with the doomsday message. In 2009, the nonprofit organisation reported in IRS filings that it received $18.3 MILLION !!! in donations , and had assets of more than $104 million, including $34 million in stocks or other publicly traded securities. ‘ …

Stocks ? … Securities ?!!! … Sounds like quite the business to me !!! …

Not surprising in the least is the fact that Harry is ‘ unavailable for comment ‘ at the moment !!! …

What I really find particularly amusing in all of this , is the fact that many people have expressed their ‘ disappointment ‘ in Harry’s unfulfilled prophecy !!! … Some of them obviously felt they were among the 200 million or so , according to Harry , that would rise to the sky … To high five the big guy in heaven !!! …

Well Harry … I guess it’s back to the paint shop for the Armageddon Wagon !!! …
