We have two choices. The end of the world as we know it or no big deal we will (all) get through this OK.

What mid-ground means to me is; I am one of the 50% of the Western World who will survive.

This sounds like the joke about the man who told his wife, "If one of us should die, I think I'll go live in Paris."

Hi Art,

There is no middle ground in the sense that either you try to prepare for the worst you can see happening in your area -- or you don't.

Attempting to prepare for 2 weeks when you figure that there *could* be 2 months of problems isn't too smart, IMO.

Arthur,there are a thousand degrees of choices,the question is ,wich degree is right for you? from what i can read on a scale from 1-10 you think you will prepare for a 5,or am i misreading you.will 50% of the western world perish? does that constitute a 10 or a 5 ? If this post is confusing to me,what would a newbie think?there are more than two choices,we have to make our own decisions as to the degree of choice that we make.no offense intended art but the post seems muddled and without clarity.just an observation.sincerly,tony.

Q: What is the middle ground of Y2K? A: The overlapping area of two non-intersecting lines(at least based on the conversation on this forum).

SWC, yes, yes, yes, but get to the point. Are you a doomer or a polly?

-- Ken Seger (kenseger@earthlink.net), May 02, 1999.

Ken the problem with SWC is he doesn't know.

Doesn't know much about anything at all. Likes to swear - that he does know. Not very good at it, or original for that matter.

Middle ground for Chuck the night driver (where he lives will resemble a war zone) will not be the same middle ground for Paul Milne in the boonies or myself for that matter.

I hope SWC lives in a ghetto in a major metroplex. SWC needs a dose of reality for being such a pest every day. SWC may finally have found his true vocation in life on rollover.

The key to understanding "bump-in-the-road" and the "official outlook".

Thanks, Flint.
