This is why I like this group so much.  You can be funny, deep, and/or very helpful.  

I did this awesome rapture day prank were i set up full sets of clothes 
in my lawn so it looked like my families bodies have been raptured.

Oddly, Powerpoint slides appear to be one of the few ways he *didn't* try to
propagate this -- or have you seen something I haven't?

In a way I'm glad:  apparently, although M$ has issued a patch for the
security problems in PP for windoze, they've left PP for Mac unsupported
except for the most recent version.  I'd hate it if, on top of the hassle of
trying to decipher Harold's attempts at Powerpoint, I ended up with some
weird security issue on my MacBook.  :-P  That really would feel like the
end of -- well, not the world, but something pretty inconvenient.
