Mr. Milne and his negative ilk are getting ready to be served notice that their negative crap is not welcome with a significant portion of the Y2K aware segment of the population (intelligent folks too)
-- John Howard (Greenville, NC) (email@example.com), January 04, 1999.
Oh shut up John you spoilsport:) - INVAR! - the game is afoot!
or is it a foot, always wondered about that...
-- Andy (2000EOD@prodigy.net), January 04, 1999.
Served how Mr. Howard? By ATF, FBI or perhaps Clintonista Gestapo agents brandishing rifles and rubber gloves? Negative crap not welcome?? Stuff it up your intelligent segment!
So much for the freedom of speech and the press! I guess as long as no one offends your mindless sensibilities and false securities do they have permissible fiat to excercize their Constitutional rights?
Negative ilk my ass. If you're worried about Y2K awareness credibility being hurt by Milne's like, you are an asleep idiot like the rest of the country politically. THE CODE IS BROKEN - IT CANNOT BE FIXED IN TIME - AMERICA DEPENDS ON A FRAGILE DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE TO SURVIVE - WE FORGOT WHAT IT'S LIKE TO SACRIFICE AND DO WIHTOUT! - HUMAN NATURE HASN'T CHANGED IN ALMOST 7,000 YEARS OF RECORDED HISTORY!!!!!
Now with all that said.....DO THE MATH!!!
And be sure to catch the next exciting episode in the Baga Saga coming later today.....

In answer to the increasingly ignorant Howard:
"Mr. Milne and his negative ilk are getting ready to be served notice that their negative crap is not welcome with a significant portion of the Y2K aware segment of the population (intelligent folks too) '
Morons like Howard, we will always have with us. It is in no way 'negative' to say that a catstrophe is brewing and that it would be wise to prepare for your loved ones. The evidence is manifest. Ignoramuses like Howard do not LIKE the conclusions, therefore the conclusions are negative. And while the evidence and facts show that the situation is getting much worse every day, morons like Howard 'feel' it is getting better.
Macaroons like Howard will be caught in the extent of their unpreparedness and pay the penalty of their invincible ignorce and calculated stupidity.
On that day, when his selfiimposed calamity overtakes him, I wonder if Howard will 'feel' that he was wrong once again and that he was an idiot not to have prepared properly.
I doubt it. When he is lamenting the terrible position that he is in, you can rest assured that he will blame it on the people who *DID* prepare. It will be all their fault and NEVER the result of his own mistakes.
People like Howard are too stupid to understand ONE LITTLE point. If I prepare now, no matter what happens, I can not be harmed by that preparation. If I do not prepare, I can DIE as a result of that lack of preparation.
Howard is just plain and simple too stiff-necked and too stupid to do what simple common sense demands.
Even if you believe that nothing bad will happen, it defies common sense not to make substantial preparations anyway, in light of the consequences of being wrong. The issue is not who is right about the consequences of Y2K but about who is wrong. I can not, under any circumstances, be harmed by being wrong. Howard dies if he is wrong. So much with crediting him with ANY sensibility at all.
Now he will whine and cry about how I have trashed him. He deserves it. His position **IS** trash. And I am the garbage man. Time to dump another Howard.

HERE!! HERE!! PAUL!!!!
And don't be quite such a stranger as you have been over the last few weeks.
Some of us disagree, some of us agree with you, but as long as it's "kitchen table rules" (you know, careful on the adjectives and euphemisms) we welcome your points.
Chuck, who also enjoys the flames on c.s.y2k!

Welcome back Paul. Let the Pollyannas have it explitives and all.
-- Bill (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 04, 1999.
Prepare all you want Milne, you won't survive anyway if it happens the way you expect.
-- General Pollyanna (email@example.com), January 04, 1999.
Hey General Pollyanna,
He'll survive a lot longer than you will. But that's not important right now. What IS important is that I got a role for you in an upcoming Bagga Saga episode, you'll love it!
--C, Your wish is granted. Look for Mr. Howard, Mr. Fine, Mr. Howard coming soon to grace the saga with all their elitist idiocy.
Make sure you tune in to Episode II later today. You have a starring role! Thanks for all the inspirations over these many months. You make a great pivotal character in the story. Please feel free to add your own narrative to the saga.
To everyone else -- It's coming!!!!
-- INVAR (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 04, 1999.
Don't forget this one.

"How 'bout a chapter where Bagga rendezvouses with his "cyber-troll" pal John Howard? "
I think we are headed for something ugly if we start labelling everyone who don't GI or don't agree with our own point of views as "trolls".
-- Chris (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 09, 1999.
As in a "cyber-troll" commune? That could be funny INVAR.
