I know this has been asked before, but I thought it was worth going over again:

Telephones (mine never seems to stop ringing) Junk Mail Infomercials Paul Milne Politics Gary North My current main magazine editor (a pox upon her house) and so on

My job.

I R S ;(

Same old meaningless drone blaring from my pts' loud TVs


-- Leska (allaha@earthlink.net), November 22, 1998.

The Welfare state. "entitlements" (at WHOSE expense??).

Bandwagons; "hey, that's a good idea- let's copy it instead of thinking up our own ideas!".

McDonalds; KFC; just about every other fast-food place except Burger King.

And most importantly, the one thing that I would be PLEASED to see y2k sweep away: this ----ed-up consumer celebrity-worship culture of ours. It's decadent. It's screwed. It's falling apart at the seams and doomed anyway. And if y2k purges that, all the other hardships would be worth it.

And don't forget the armies of law-bending lawyers.

Being told I'm obsessed with Y2K.

Traffic. Air pollution. A government that doesn't listen. The nightly news.

global warming


mainstream media, groups that seek to provide criminals with disarmed victims (HCI, CPHV, etc), most large urban areas, most liberals, and DC rush hour traffic.

The judicial system, Johnny Cochran, Geraldo Riveria, TV, Art Bell, all free giveway programs, whining socialists, environmental wackos, stop lights, 7-11 stores, newspapers, magazines, and the deer that eat my plants, I'll have to eat them instead. Diane and Leo: Dittos.

I won't miss my frustration with the current state of affairs; i.e., Hollywood raising our kids, and CNN dictating what's what.

-- Chris (catsy@pond.com), November 22, 1998.

Agree with most of above. Especially TV, maybe families will spend more time together. I won't miss the fast-paced society, trying to fit 28 hours into a 24 hour day. So long to the NEA, TV, government, and anyone else telling us how to teach our children. Oh yeah, won't miss my pager at all!

-- L Parks (lparks@eurekanet.com), November 22, 1998.

TELEMARKETERS, junk mail, infomercials, Tony Robbins, commuting, office politics,......

A bad pint of Guinness.

The idiot who gets behind you in heavy traffic, tailgates like mad, squalls his brakes when you stop for a red light, and then blows his damn horn one tenth of a second after the light changes. Memphis has the worst drivers in the USA.

Being a number in some goverments computer. So they can keep track of how much money i may owe or may not owe in traffic tickits, fines, taxes, fees, soicial security, and so on. The idea that the more stuff i own the more happy I will be. Need more credit more dept baa baa ba ba baaa ba the sheeple explained. Public schools mass producing duped and deceived kids. Healthy men who make a living with out getting dirty. Goverment as ones God. Always having to be busy, no time to relax I have to do do do do or I might not amount to anything in the eyes of my family and friends baaaaaa baa ba ba baa ba ba ba baaaaaa.

You Rick.

I guess the post by Arnie Rimmer on Conectiv's 10Q is just an illusion. Help us out will you? Go up to the post Power: 10Q Delaware's power Company- and tell us all why it doesn't belong here but on North's and Hamasaki's sites.

And Bob, considering I have never talked to you before today, I can already tell I won't miss you either. Your answer is over in the Deleware thread.
