y2k in my dreamsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Last week I had a dream that I was watching t.v., waiting for the opening bell on the NYSE. Everyone in my family was there watching, too. We knew that it was not going to be good because of "something" that had just been announced. The Dow was at 10,000, but immediately after the bell, it plummeted 1400 points-and kept going. People were screaming down in the "pit", bells and red lights were going off-people were yelling for the stock market to be shut down to avoid a complete collapse-and it finally was-right as the Dow hit 400. We shall see...

Greetings, this is my first post. My wife, Muftiah, upon her first encounter with y2k (I had just learned of it that day) had a very disturbing dream:
She said that people were just standing around, mostly confused and angry, not because they were hungry or starving, but because they just were totally shocked and bewildered.
Oh, yes, I can't get anyone to listen to me either. But I GotIT the momemt a friend directed me to "check out y2k". The next 2 days I didn't sleep. I just stayed on the internet untill I was thoughly convenced.
I have tried "community awareness", talking to friends & relitives, even have started a website. I sent ouot 400 email pleadings to friends and former associates, etc. the response was almost nill.
May God hep us all farlan

Farlan. You are doing better than I did at first... I walked around in a daze a lot longer than two days. Thanks for your first post and Welcome.

I still haven't made that dazed stage; I can't quite resign myself to the fact that our civilisation is going to end.
All the same, I'm getting ready anyway ;)

Perhaps it's just your choice of words, but you sound like you're a real mess.
Listen, we may experience a severe recession, possibly a depression, maybe high unemployment and/or chaos for a while.
However, civilization is NOT going to end
Fear, however, may end all hope for you unless you get a grip on the fact that civilization is not ending. There are already tragedies taking place in this world (Somalia and Bosnia etc.)and there will continue to be tragedies, perhaps even on a larger scale. But the biggest tragedy by far is when a man/woman loses hope.
