    Rapture is a heresy. One must hide within a small group (10-12 people according to saint Seraphim of Sarov from Russia, 10-15 people group according to saint Gabriel Urgebadze from the country of Georgia) in order to escape the unforgivable mark of the beast. No documents; documents are from Satan; burn them (even documents of deceased relatives). No electronics once you hid so that you won't be tracked (even an old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's will show the infamous evil flying antichrist using Tesla's ether). [Saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov] Mark of the beast is given with World Passport (grey plastic card with no name on it); antichrist will release prisoners / insane asylum people to help him mark everyone. Police will mark people on highways; food stores will mark people who steal marked food (because marked food can only be swallowed by a marked person who has three strands of DNA instead of two). Reject vaccines, temperature scans, COVID tests (or similar), etc.

    Source(s): Saint Paisios from Mount Athos said that the devil wants to deceive the rich with freemasonry, poor with communism, and believers with ecumenism.

    Shortbread is Scottish, but the origin of scones is debatable. It could be argued the current type of scones eaten in the UK originated from Scotland, but scone-like baked goods were also common long ago on the European continent. Maybe it spread from Scotland to the mainland or the other way. We have no way to definitively know which.

    There are many kinds of tea that uses black tea leaves. And there is no requirement to drink it with milk or cream. Just as there is no requirement that you must add sugar.  The custom of using milk or cream actually stemmed from a practical reason: when Europeans started to make their own porcelain wares they did not quite learned how to make them in as high a quality as the ones made in China.  Low quality porcelain wares like tea cups can crack if you pour too hot a liquid into them. So it was a common practice to pour milk/cream into the tea cup, then pour the hot tea into it.  The milk/cream keeps the temperature from being too high.

    Well, there is Scottish shortbread, Scones are made all over the UK, and black tea is drunk with or without milk its just preference.

    Yes, shortbread is Scottish. Scones are connected traditionally with England, Scotland, and Ireland, but nobody knows which country invented it, and no one can "prove" it is Scottish only. Black tea, like anything else, is drunk the way you like it.
