Gary South site : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I just stumbled across the "Gary South" forum this morning, quite by accident. While I'm a GI and have been preparing because I recognize the seriousness of Y2K, I still got a couple of good laughs from this site which, of course, make fun of North. My thought, though, was if whoever created this site spent as much time and effort on real preps as he/she did on this, all would be well in that person's life come 1-1-00.

Vic, I also thought the site was funny; found it about a month ago. Do you really spend a lot of time preparing? I find it doesn't take that much time to pick up a few extra items at the store, no big deal.

-- Lucy (, February 17, 1999.


Preparing for us has meant quite a bit more than picking up a few extras every time we go to the store. We're in a rural setting so it's meant buying a generator and a 1,000-gallon propane tank. Done a lot of canning (that's hard work) and we have a garden (more hard work). Being fully prepared (is there such a thing?) is a difficult task, physically and emotionally, and I wish you the best of luck.

-- Vic (, February 17, 1999.


No offense intended, but either 1) you are WAY more prepared that most or 2) you don't REALLY Get It. or 3)You're below a 5.

Whichever way it is, I don't imply anything perjorative. Just that preps for a 5 or above cannot possibly constitute just picking up a few extra things at the grocery.

I hope for you sake it's 1)
