What are you cooking for the Rapture?

I had planned on an overnight cook of some shoulder, starting Saturday into Sunday. Does anyone know the timing of this thing? I mean, is it midnight? the moment it 'turns' Saturday, or is it at the END of Saturday? :ermm: And I guess it's too much to ask that if there IS an hour foretold, it is Greenwich Meant Time? ...or will it march around the globe like New Year's Eve does, everybody ascending at, say, 6pm their local time?

Maybe I'll just do ribs. Can you even bring food to heaven, (assuming they let me in)?

If they don't take me, you can reach me at Stephen Hawking's after-party.

    It seems that New Zealand will be the first to see it. This will occur at 6pm their time (It will still be Friday in US). It will continue to march around the world, and should hit San Francisco at 6pm PST on Saturday. Got this info from various online news articles.

    From what I read, we are only getting the music on the 21st of May. The real reconning will be Oct 21, 2011. So I believe that you have plenty of time to cook that last meal. That is of course, you don't have an earthquake and some dead bodies don't rise up right next to your BGE!

    I think it's supposed to be at 6:00 - 6:30 P.M. no matter where you are. Starts East and moves with the time zones to the west.

    I'll probably cook something lite fairly early in the afternoon, so I won't be bloated and uncomfortable for the trip.

    Looking forward to finally meeting you. Sure hope I'm not disappointed. ;)

    Saved my first meal of that 60 day aged prime rib for the big event, but won't be eating it until later that night! But no fear as the predicted end of the world is 5 months later on October 21st...therefore youse people who planned to stiff your bank on your mortgage this month better not!

    I have it on inside information that you should be "as god made you" when it happens. I say, to be safe, at 5:59, take off all your clothes and run out into the open.

    i like the fact that it is local time. because it gives all the nonbelievers time to repent when we see it happen a few hours ahead of us. Pity the poor New Zealanders caught unawares, though.

    i think the christians are getting it this weekend, and the mayans in october.

    why could the mayans predict the end of the world, but couldn't foresee the spanish coming and destroying their culture long before?

    You must not know a lot of the attendees for this fest. Either that or you freelance as a shock recovery therapist and are trolling for new clients.
