Best. Website. Ever.

There's nothing like religion to bring the crazy people out of the woodwork.

If you are familiar with certain wings of the Christian church, you will be aware that there can be an awful lot of interest in 'End Times'. In the US, the dreadful Left Behind book series (which seems to have at least 5000 different books in it) has stoked interest to unprecedented levels. Come to think of it they also did a Left Behind movie so bad, it transcended crapness into something quite extraordinary.

So, it was with great interest that I came across this website:

Jesus will come for the
saints any day now...
Your odds of being among them are not good

The website tells you what to do in the event of you missing out on the Rapture. Rather than telling you to pray, cross your fingers and hope for the best, it gives some altogether more practical advice. This website will give you tips on everything; from what stocks will boom while commerce is controlled by the anti-Christ, to how you can minimize inheritance tax on gifts left by raptured relatives.

Absolute genius in every way. I think my personal favourite is the FAQ section, one highlight being this question:

The Mark of the Beast sounds unsightly. Will ordinary makeup conceal this if it is as unattractive as some believe?

If you are interested in finding out more about religious fruitcakes, you could do worse than visit and click on the Fruitcake Zone.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to speak to my financial advisor

Yup, good as they are, it's better than them. In fact, these wesbites are also not as good...
