What's on Your 'Post-Rapture Looting' Wish List?

Because the Rapture will descend on this mortal coil Saturday and whoosh away all "true followers" of Christ, many forward-thinking sinners are already planning ahead for that Holy Vaccuum. Specifically, the immediate wake, when the born-again folks have been sucked up to Heaven, the earthquake is over, and the remaining unsaved baddies will be left standing around, wondering where all those cute blue-haired Wal-Mart greeters went. There's even a Facebook event invite for that window of time, three uninterrupted hours of zealous "Post-Rapture Looting." (Update: The event creator speaks!)

The riot is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. on May 21, courtesy of Facebook users Ben Conner and Carl W. Franke (?), who are apparently on the hunt for "some sweet stereo equipment" and "maybe some new furniture." The location is, of course, everywhere, time zones be damned. As of this moment, more than 53,000 people have RSVP'd, at a rate of 5,006 an hour (seriously, I did the math), with 3,764 unsure of their salvation and "maybe" attending.

The invite has, naturally, inspired thousands of responses. Like looting wish lists.

Some of which read like the Vice Guide to Kentucky.

There's wide speculation about what this particular strain of Doomsday Christian actually owns.

And fantasies that are maybe best left on OkCupid.

Also, understandable concern about the status of the Preakness.

And: compelling arguments for inviting Jesus into your heart, like, now.

It's worth noting that Saturday's prophecy comes directly from the mouth of a man named Harold Camping who originally decided the world would end in 1994, but upon further "recalculation" (once the world continued to exist), realized the actual day would be May 21, 2011. Hey, we all make mistakes! [Facebook]

Updated, May 17, 12:10 pm EST: Reached via Facebook, event co-creator Ben Conner explains, "I wrote that [event invite] as a joke to send the other atheist I work with--I sent it to exactly one person," he notes, clarifying that the other person was event-invite co-founder Carl Franke. "He posted it on a few atheist sites and it's blown up. Had no idea I was creating a meme at the time."

At the time of this update, 112,332 have RSVP'd and the wall postings keep coming and coming. . .

Plenty of mansions to choose from in Naples Florida...well assuming they become empty. I have my eye on an Aston Martin, a 62 foot yacht and a Mansion. I wish I could kidnap a good chef to prepare gourmet meals as well as a housekeeper.

Do any good Christians own sailboats larger than 38 feet, you think?

^ _ ^ I will have a whole senior's building to call my own, I just hope they leave their doors unlocked when they go, or don't die several days before the rapture so I won't have to clean up anything

Run your lead on a spellchecker. "Vacuum" has one "c" (from the Latin vacare).

 Wouldn't it be cool if judgment day, End Times WAS real, but only for the believers?

 The rest of us would just go on living. Sort of like a 'built in expiration date' for the believers.

 You wouldn't have time to turn the key. For me? the starship Enterprise, or something that flies equally well.

 There's no need to loot, when our book tells you howto make a bundle off the rise of the Anitchrist, when to invest in Israeli real estate, and how to retire as the Invisible Locusts from the Abyss arrive on schedule.  It's right here: http://tinyurl.com/3qchagzhttp...
