Just Some Comments From A Friendgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Thought Id share a couple private e-mails with some of you, as a form of little-trenches input for your global planning strategies, uh, visions. -- Diane
Thanks for the Y2K info. I have been receiving much info from our data comm department. But from what I have been able to ascertain, at this point, there is no doubt going to be devastation in many major areas. All I plan on doing is to be prepared and have ready cash. I am convinced that the banks and our government, not to mention the rest of the world will be down for quite some time.
What I find appalling is that governments have spent so much money on bad or incompatible technology, have not seriously addressed this issue and as a result we will all be paying the price. This time the governmental way of waiting until there is a disaster before addressing a problem is going to have sever consequences. I would appreciate any "inside" information you may receive that will assist me in getting through this. I have new technology and it will not have an impact on my personal systems but the nationwide and global impacts are what I am concerned about. On a positive note, you [translate -- all of us] may consider starting a business specializing in customized personal/small business systems that can help individuals through this crisis. You [translate -- all of us] have the expertise and talent to do just that. Just a thought. I always try to "make lemonade out of the lemons that come my way.
Please continue with the positive input about how to handle the impending situation out on the net. I am sure many people will take to heart what you have said. Do not, however, expect the die-hard bubbas to take heed. They are who they are and will not change until they are ready. They are who they are supposed to be. It is right for them as our chosen lifestyle is right for us. We just need to be aware that they are out there and stay clear of them during the critical times. A native american Chief said it best: Learn to talk to the animals What man does not understand he fears What he fears he hates What he hates he must kill This saying can apply to so many historical events, I do not even want to try and list them here. What I am getting at is that we need to concentrate our energy on those who wish to live their lives with dignity and love, regardless of the circumstances. This upcoming Y2K experience does not frighten me in the least. I have all the "weapons" I need to survive it and ultimately achieve abundance at the other end. What we expect from this, and anything else in life for that matter, we will receive. I expect to be in a place where I will feel safe. I will be prepared to survive on a physical level and thrive on a spiritual one. I expect to be surrounded by like minded others who will look at this as a learning experience and expect to ultimately achieve growth resulting in a stronger, healthier community.
I will be leaving my employ in late December. I intend to utilize some of the extra time I will have on research and adding my two cents worth to the internet community as well. Bless you for your efforts and know that it is greatly appreciated by me and I am sure all of the others on your e-mail list!
Translation, Richard ... there are more people like me coming your way! Sleep on that one. And please, turn your wit and vivacity towards writing sing-along-songs for the global Y2K campout.

Diane... Mind if I take a drag off that thing you're smoking?

It is known as a "toke", and always pass to the lefthand side. Hee Hee ;)

Hull, I don't smoke or toke, it messes up the rational and the conscious mind. (I'll still stand by my Starbuck's coffee though, as long as they ship).
Jack, calm down, this was your (and others) experiment, not mine. Wasn't the idea to see what the general public would say and also to have an open chat among yourselves? Or am I reading your lines too much? (Gotta get some glasses.)

Does the number of G's in a good "argh" have to equal the number of H's, or is it a linear or exponential progression?

Thanks for sharing others' thoughts on Y2K Diane.

Im not only over on the left, but up a couple dimensions. I, and a whole lot of other people, in this country, are so far outside of your box that Ross Perot looks, well, right. Our box has luminescent light walls that you can walk through. Ever see the movie "Ghost?" (Besides, your box has too much kitty litter in it and critters have been makin quite a mess in there).
We also KNOW that your "thoughts create reality" because weve tested the concept by living it. Change your focused thoughts. Change your simultaneous reality. Good feng shui principals to live by.
Want to change the Y2K outcomes? Change the focus of your thinking. Consequently, change your choices. Do something different. Maybe change your world. Then again, maybe not. Depends upon how many people, In strategically (visionary) key positions, Can influence a sea-change In the thinking of other's, Operating upon the global stage. Get it?
Think Globally. Act Locally, as a connected web.
Magic is alive and well in our dreams and our visions, and can be in our collective thoughts.

And another thing...
Any organization, or experiment, will either stand, or fall, on the strength of its own creation. Do ya all choose to stand now, or fall?
I too have seen some of this countrys finest posting here. I dearly wish it was more prevalent within the mass media generators. Its buried there and will probably surface when the writers and reporters and on-air personalities realize whats at stake. (And forget who writes their paychecks). The treasure is also actually buried in Washington, but they need to forget what they think they know and remember the we the people is all of us.
Couldnt be more tickled by the Jesse Ventura win. Now theres someone who wont let you stand in his way, cause if you try, hell flip you. Quite refreshing!
