Yes, two days left although it's probably more appropriate to talk hours now. The show kicks off along the International Date Line around 6PM on the 21st with a great earthquake. Of course, the Christians are supposed to be taken into Heaven before that happens although

If this actually does come to pass, will the world be just as it was before the rapture took some up to the heavens?
In other words, will there still be electricity, phone, internet, public transportation, deliveries to the supermarket, restaurants open, fire trucks at the ready, post office delivery, street sweepers, meter maids to write tickets, etc.? Or will shit be in pandemonium, completely f'd up, and anarchy everywhere?
I know there will be a certain fend-for-one's-self type of thing going on, but how much "normal" will be left and how much will it just not really matter any more and the need to go into survival mode? Maybe I should call that radio show...
From what I've heard from Camping, there will be three major events: a subset of Christians disappear, major earthquakes develop and spread throughout the Earth, and the dead are tossed out of their graves and litter the ground. I think they'll still be dead though.
I can't find a link but I have heard him compare the upcoming quakes with the Japan quakes so that magnitude on a worldwide scale will fuck things up pretty good.

If God is using this to start over, will he start with Pangaea again?

If we do it right, by the time the 20th century comes around and the then-advanced race makes it to the moon, they will find the footage and be able to make much more interesting film strips and documentaries for middle- and high-school students to learn from.

Please post any funny office stories, stuff you see when you are out running errands, etc. All I've seen thus far are a few news stories about the news stories that Mr. Camping is a nutcase.
Heaven can wait: Prophet's non-profit staff expects to work Monday
Many of Harold Camping's employees don't believe that the rapture will take place on May 21 as he has predicted, CNNMoney reports. A receptionist at his Family Radio nonprofit estimates that about 80 percent of her coworkers don't agree with Camping's May 21 belief, the story says.
But not even all of his own employees are convinced that the world is ending on Saturday. In fact, many still plan on showing up at work on Monday.
"I don't believe in any of this stuff that's going on, and I plan on being here next week," a receptionist at their Oakland headquarters told CNNMoney.
A program producer in Illinois told us, "We're going to continue doing what we're doing."
The report says the nonprofit requested an extension from their July 15 deadline to November 15 for their paperwork in Minnesota, one of the states where they solicit donations.
