Lest you've been comatose for the last month or so, let's fill you in on the biggest news story of the last —oh— two thousand years: The Rapture is coming. Like, Saturday. The saved will ascend to heaven, the graves will unleash their dead, and the rest of us will be left to walk among corpses and zombies. Sounds like an opportune moment for a little looting, right?

So thought Ben Conner and Carl W Franke, organizers of a post-rapture looting party that's already gotten major traction on Facebook, with more than 125,000 attendees, to date. To quote the organizers: "When everyone is gone and god's not looking, we need to pick up some sweet stereo equipment and maybe some new furniture for the mansion we're going to squat in." Gather up your Samsonite, heathens, and godspeed.
