The Daily Teaser — 21-5-2015: It’s The End Of The World, As We Know It

You know, I’ve got a day off, today.

Which isn’t isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Although I know perfectly well, I’ve things to do.

First off?   I’ve a blood test, today: basically, one that helps me keep track of my under active thyroid gland.

I’ve ALSO got to go to the post office in Brentwood High Street.   Basically, I’ve ordered a hard drive sled for my Mac Pro.   I’ve got to sign for it, by the sound of things, and, as I was working, yesterday?   The postman couldn’t deliver it, so left me a note to say where to pick it up from.

And finally … ?

Well, finally, I’ve got to post a letter.   And wouldn’t you know it, the actual letter box is at the other end of the High Street from where I need to pick up the parcel: which doesn’t accept letters.

Oh well … it’s all healthy exercise … !


But let’s get a move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring three and a half out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video … 

Q1) 21st May was the date the late Harold Camping predict that the Rapture, and Judgement Day, would take place.   In which year?
Q2) In which month of that year did Camping claim the End of the World would happen: September, October or November?
Q3) He’d previously claimed the End of the World would happen in a year of the 1990s: which year?
Q4) The Rapture is when God’s Chosen are taken where?
Q5) According to the Book of Revelations, the battle at the end of the world, will take place where: Armageddon, Armandhammer or Armaglaswegian?
Q6) That Last Battle is associated with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Conquest — or Pestilence — is on a white horse, War is on a red horse, Famine on a black horse: who’s on the Pale Horse?
Q7) Those marked with the Number of the Beast will — according to some — be cursed by God, at the End of the World: what IS the Number of the Beast?
Q8) Which band had a 1982 hit with The Number Of The Beast?
Q9) Which 1976 film — and its 2006 remake — see the Antichrist being born to the US Ambassador to the UK?
Q10) Finally … which US band had a 1987 hit with It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …
Q1) 20th, May, 1948, saw Chiang Kai-shek named as president of where?
A1) The Republic of China: also called Taiwan.
Q2) One year later, 20th May, 1949, saw the establishment of the Armed Forces Security Agency: predecessor of which US agency?
A2) The National Security Agency: or NSA.   (The Agency’s responsible for signal’s intelligence.)
Q3) 20th May, 1983, saw publication of the paper that detailed the discovery of the HIV virus.   What does the ‘I’ stand for, in HIV?
Q4) 20th May, 1902, saw Cuba gain its independence.  From where?
A4) The USA.
Q5) Finally … 20th May is the feast day of Saint Lucifer of Cagliari.   Cagliari is on which Mediterranean island?
A5) Sardinia.
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“And now, we have no option. We can’t say ‘maybe,’ ‘it’s possible,’ ‘it looks very probable.’ No way! We have to say this is what the Bible teaches! This is fact! May 21 is the day of the Rapture, it is the day that Judgment Day begins…” Harold Camping.
And this song …

And THIS song …

Oh … And THIS piece …

Enjoy the day: and try not to get raptured … !

*        My pleasure, Debbi^!   (Oh … I notice someone’s bagged themselves a publisher! Congratulations!)

^        Oh, sorry about the half point, Debbi: China’s … murky.   But basically, Chiang Kai-shek was President of what’s now Taiwan.
