The ONLY way Y2K will be anything!!! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Is if people panic and make a run on the banks!!! If Power goes out they will start the desiel generators and start them up again!!! The red cross told you how to prepare, 2 weeks worth of food, heat and money!!!

So go ahead and get 1 to 3 months of food, heat, and money! If you can't, make plans with others...

But don't think its the end of the world as we know it!!!

2000 will come and go like all the other years have...

Caveman, You're living in fantasyland pal. Wake up and look around you! How appropriate you chose the name as "Caveman" as things will be pretty much prehistoric when the SHTF.

Two months worth of cash, is a bank run. They have about $250./person in cash.

Blaspheme!! Careful Caveman, There's these three retarded trolls on this formu who get really pissed when you're rational.

-- Jimmy Bagga Doughnuts (, January 08, 1999.

You're right, caveman, panic is probably going to kill more people than almost anything else.Preparation is the antidote to panic.With food, water and heat thought out and prepared for, there is no need for panic. However our government is so afraid of panic that they are not teaching the people to prepare or how to prepare.

I bet tho, Caveman you are prepared in your cave with all the neccessities for a year ot 2, right?

The shame of it all, is that we cannot prepare everyone because a) they think we're nuts,and b) we endanger our own safety.But you do what you can and hope for the best.

as for TEOTWAWKI, yes, it will be if your world has been all on a material plain. Depression is not a nice life,starvation is ugly.But there again, preparation is the key.

So "They" want to divert a panic? I would say that "They" are going to create a panic. The general public is uninformed, yet "They" are preparing. Would you trust klinton at the helm during any REAL crisis, be it real or concieved?


-- Michael (, January 08, 1999.

OOPS! Should have read, "real or percieved."

Me too! I want to see the nit wits scramble and hit each other over the head for a bag of beans! Since we won't be able to watch it on TV if we don't have electricity, we can at least listen to it on our Bay Gen radio! Yeh, I want some action! I want to hear all the killings, rioting, martial law. It's going to be real fun! We can rest easy! We've prepared! Yep, can't wait to sit back all smug in my cozy house, eating popcorn by the fire, and listening to the radio! Be just like in the days when radio first came out! CAN"T WAIT! Let the bullets fly and the riots begin!

The ONLY way panic will be if people are personally impacted by Y2K failures.

-- Kevin (, January 08, 1999.

But, you should feel secure in the knowledge that the government has NINETY SEVEN fully stocked underground installations in and around D.C. in which to flee during this potentially dangerous time. Could be we won't lose even one of our shining and upstanding government members.

-- (, January 08, 1999.

I'd hate to be in one of those installations when several hundred government officials blasts a big fart! Ha! All those beans they're going to be eating! WOW, they'll blast the top right off those installations! Hope Klinton doesn't decide to light up one of those smokes he doesn't inhale! KAPOWWWWW!

-- fingeronthetrigger (, January 08, 1999.

Right,Michael, instead of a small panic now that could be contolled with preparation there will be a massive one later when nothing can be done

Mass--that's what really scares me!!
