Oh, good lord.
Harold Camping, Mr. Rapture himself, finally came out of seclusion to say "oops!" and make a statement on the complete lack of Armageddon that took place on Saturday.

"Family Radio spent millions – some of it from donations made by followers – on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 recreational vehicles plastered with the doomsday message. In 2009, the non-profit reported in IRS filings that it received $18.3-million in donations, and had assets of more than $104 million, including $34-million in stocks or other publicly traded securities."
You guys! His predictions are TOTALLY not to make his organization money by parting gullible Bible-thumpers from their money. Honest! It's for real next time!
