CBS covers Y2k/millenium again on Friday's Unsolved Mysteries : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Covered Y2k, Nostradomus's and Casey's predictons relative to the millienium. Had a doomsday slant. Watching it right now.

Had Jason Kelly (a computer expert) talking about Y2k issues...

-- Tim (, May 28, 1999.

Some predictions of air travel being hindered.

Koskinen speaks...Talks about self-fulfilling prophecies, even though there may be no problems.

-- Tim (, May 28, 1999.

CBS.COM, Unsolved Mysteries Page: For centuries, prophets have been forecasting disaster for the Millennium. Many are predicting that war and natural disasters may bring about Armageddon, but perhaps our most fearsome problem may be the Y2K bug.

Too bad I didn't find this sooner...maybe it will repeat in the summer.

-- Tim (, May 28, 1999.

Ed was on there.....some good points were the one about the utilities....40% chance of nationwide blackout....almost 10% chance of brownouts...

should have been 100%chance of brownouts...Sorry! Mary-n-Tx

Segment just finished here on the Left Coast.

Despite good stuff from Ed and Jason Kelly, given the type of audience this sort of goofy programing apeals to I doubt our numbers will increase significantly. Tabloid loving types aren't doers. (Should I duck ladies?)

Diane type "*sigh*"

-- Carlos (, May 29, 1999.

DAMN!!! I wanted to see this, just read the Jason Kelly y2k book...

-- Andy (, May 29, 1999.

Well, if you want to study a true doomer try...

Earth Changes Report - columns by Gordon-Michael Scallion.

This Forum is lightweight by comparison.

Saw the show thanks to the East Coast alert. Tabloid TV, is alive and well.

*Big Sigh* (Carlos)

Edgar Cayce on the other hand commands my deepest respect. He used a true psychic and channeling gift to help thousands of people with their lives and healing, and is well worth studying!

Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) - the international headquarters of the work of Edgar Cayce, considered the most documented psychic of all time.

Ed's comments we're fine but it's those sound bites intermixed with the rest of the Unsolved Mysteries slant, that can't even come close to a 60-minutes take on Y2K.

I agree Diane. I think Unsolved Mysteries is a silly show, among a cast of silly shows.

Also, I read Jason Kelly's book when it first came out, and it was a waste of good trees.

Sorry, I don't mean to be sarcastic, but sometimes the people on this forum remind me of kids telling ghost stories; they scare themselves to death. Then at the first unusual noise, they jump and scream, even though it's only a leaf hitting the window.

While I'm preparing for y2k, I'm much more concerned about the enviornment; toxic waste in our ground water, loss of diversity, loss of farm land, genetically modified foods, and on and on and on. But of course it isn't nearly as exciting as Y2K. You'll never see anything about it on Unsolved Mysteries Tabloid TV.
