The "mother of new years "greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Of course 01/01/2000 will be the ultimate New Years Day that we'll experience in our lifetimes, it'll seem however just like any other day (to begin with). Since it will be the mother of all new years, have forum members thought of their suitable new year's resolutions. Of course these have to fit the occasion, not just giving up Marlboros etc.

Wow, what a thought. I suppose that I would resolve to finally read that manual on improvised weapons and explosives. It shouldn't be much of a problem considering I probably won't have much of a choice. I hope the government will resolve to take future problems seriously and keep the interests of the public their primary concern (instead of interns and the Chinese). Although it would surprise me if there was a government around to make any resolutions at all.

My New Year's Resolution for 2000: to stay ALIVE and to keep my family fed.

uh, I was thinking about giving up electrical power, tap water, hot showers, basically anything convenient!
But I think Gayla really hit on exactly where my attention will be focused.

Depends if the lights are on or off...
If ON, resolve to be grateful for every gift life has to offer.
If OFF, resolve to be grateful for every gift life has to offer, and become a light for others and encourage them to be lights, and so on, and so on...

To stop thinking about myself as an individual and start thinking about the world as a whole. To, if neccessary, give my life in order to shorten the period of darkness.

Leo you're beginning to sound like Diane, (only an observation with no innuendo intended).

Hey Richard, Shift Happens, especially when more lights turn on!
