Dagrademon? A grand dome? Moaned drag?

Nope, it doesn't work.  Can't even get the word 'anagram' out of it.  Total bish-up.  There was I, sat here at six o'clock, clutching my prized possession, expecting agony or ecstasy depending on whether I was in the right sort of cult - and, nothing!  An incoming email was the nearest thing I got to an earth-splitting apocalypse.

What went wrong?  I think we should be told.  Mr Camping, you owe us an explanation: you told us that your calculations were precise and conclusive, this time.  Happy to receive it in the form of a comment on this blog post (of which you will of course already be fully aware), either from you or any one of your fellow cu*ts.

  1. Would your prized possession be that hand embroidered Irish linen pillowcase?

  2. Ah so you missed it? Trouble was he hadn't reckoned on British Summertime. It happened at 5 o'clock not 6. But because we weren't all hyped up for it at 5, like we were at 6 of course, we didn't notice.
    It'll be 21 October that makes the big difference. He'll think of something, no doubt.
    Don't panic. Arm a Geddon. If you know any.

  3. Life's a bitch, isn't it? For the first time blogger appears to be letting me past the pearly gates (not a very practical building medium, by the way, maybe that's why) and I'm distressed to find I've no idea what your otherwise entertaining post is about.

  4. Nope. Hasn't gone through. Should I write in French?

    Non, ça ne passe toujours pas. L'extrème chauvinisme, la seule explication. M*rde.

  5. ElizT - No, they leave grooves all over your face and you wake up looking tatooed.
    Soaring - I was intrigued by that. Apparently this event went round the world so that it hit everywhere at 6 p.m. local time. What happened when it encountered the International Date Line? (Well, nothing is obviously the answer).
    Christopher - I know you've been on Planet Scotland, but I'm reliably informed that even there they knew the world was ending yesterday. Practise your anagrams.

  6. Has anyone checked if Samoa is still with us? They were due to move to the other side of the IDL so maybe they were the only ones that got caught up in it. But maybe they haven't done that yet. 21st October would be a good day for that.
    The countdown on Camping's Family Radio GaGa site says zero, not +1. So presumably the followers are now in a time warp (does that, chillingly, make them leaders?)

  7. OK, I've caught up since, but no, there was no news of Don Grade, MA in Scotland. The parts we were in were clearly exempt because of the essential uprightness and sobriety of the locals.

    And I see I haven't been allowing for moderation. RTFM.

    If ever you feel the need to know what it's like to be slow on the uptake, just ask.

  8. Maybe those few virtuous ones to be chosen were simple shepherds in the wilds of Africa and no-one has noticed they've been raptured... and there will now follow 6 months of apocalyptic weather (erm, tick) before the rest of us are thrown into the pits?

  9. Ah well, better luck next time, God. You can't be expected to look after rapture/armawotssit and Gyan Riggs all at the same time. Plus all those other planets.

  10. They need to get the warranties out & see if they're still valid. Surely the maintenance period is up now. Time to move on & expect to pay for what's needed, instead of just reading the warranty & hoping it will still work.
