Q: What will you be doing on that day? Are you just waiting for the earthquake, are you having some kind of ceremony?

"5 times 10 times 17 is telling you a story," Camping said. "It's the story from the time Christ made payment for your sins until you're completely saved. I tell ya, I just about fell off my chair when I realized that."
One meat processor (which will remain nameless) recently embarked on an application software project. Of course, catchweight was a must-have for its business. The company asked the software salesman if the software had catchweight, and after having to explain the concept at great length to the salesman (a bad sign), the salesman said “no problem.”
It later transpired that the salesman thought that catchweight was only a simple pricing issue. The meat processor did not probe into the details, was satisfied that catchweight was “available,” and signed a contract. The result: the project overran the budget and missed the schedule significantly… The meat processor had to write a significant amount of custom code just to get pricing working correctly.
