A lot of people think the Rapture is coming May 21. It's not. But assuming your pets are okay, here's a prank we'd like you to pull. We call it Rapture Bombing.

On May 21, get a bunch of your old clothes in full sets of pants, shirts, and shoes. Bonus points if you leave accessories like an old watch or sunglasses to go with them. Lay them out as if people have suddenly disappeared, leaving only the clothes behind. Be creative. Take pictures. Post them on our Facebook page, or tweet them with the hashtag #rapturebomb. We'll run the best ones; our favorites will win prizes. (Don't get too excited—we're talkin' iPhone cases and shit.) And if you make your local news? You'll be Giz's hero for the day. [via MLKSHK]

this is a terrible (and slightly offensive) idea... and i'm an atheist.

This title of this post should have been: "Let's leave these people alone to practice their religion in anyway they wish, because by tolerating their beliefs, that makes me a better person."

its a very important event to a lot of people, and just because you think it's silly, doesn't give you the right to call for a public demonstration that could lead to hysteria... if i showed up at the soho apple store the day the iphone 4 came out, dressed up like a genius, and told everyone that it was out of stock, you nerds would s**t yourselves.
