And You Thought You Had Problems...

I came across a great article on Reuters news wire today. There is a US based religious cult that apparently is/was firmly convinced that the world was going to end in a big atomic explosion yesterday.

The group who decided to make their home in Kenya (presumably because not too many nukes are targeted on the Kenyan Game Reserves). They have created a big underground bunker, and stocked it with a years worth of food.

Apparently yesterday several dozen members of the "House of Yahweh", resplendent in gas masks, gloves, and long overcoats entered the bunker and plan on staying underground for an entire year while the whole atomic destruction of life as we know it blows over!

According to Sang (their leader) , a nuclear war between the United States and North Korea only failed to kick off Tuesday as expected due to difference in international time zones.

OMG! lets all get under the kitchen table and put paper bags on our heads to protect us from the fallout!

Kinda funny... I remember the whole millenium thign too. I was at the bar on New Year's, a total mess, and all I could think of was whether or not my computer would work when I got home LOL

Did they take any Kool-Aid in with them? - -

The charisma this joker must have to get ANYONE to join him in this nonsense must be pretty great. - But why would anyone use such great charisma to get people to follow him into a hole?
