point of no return -- are you a good witch??

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Do any of you Doomjockeys honestly think you're changing anybody's mind at this late date?

If you're not (AND YOU'RE NOT...neither are we), what's the bother?

We'll just see how it all plays out. People like me will die laughing in January, so you'll still get some vindication. "Miss Manners" Milne the Funereal Fuckup will have some choice comments, at any rate.

Why don't you wait till after the big date, chick? Won't the laugh be far more fullfilling then? If you're right that is...

My Dear Mr Little

Sir it is so nice to see you again..Since you wish to speak of things of substantance. And since I now you have been out in the world some where learning (or should I say, cramming) as much as you can in order to discuss power generation facualties, and their embeded systems' quirks with me.

Want to come out and play with me??

Wouldn't think of deleting the thread. just gonna referree it so that the rest of the world doesn't think the folks here are totally out to lunch. Always assuming I can recognize this sort of thing if I ever get back from lunch.

Wait! Don't delete yet. I have a good question for you.

Why are you still here? It's been a really long time. I can understand a polly checking out a forum like this once or twice, just to be curious. But I really can't figure out why he/she would stay for months.

I'm always lurking here because I'm concerned. It takes up a lot of my time, so I can't figure out why a person who's not as concerned as I am would spend so much time here.

Even if you don't have anything better to do with your life, even if you don't work and/or don't have a life, you are still paying us too much attention. I mean, if you really have the attitude that you're trying to portray, that is.

I think you are just as concerned as any of us. If you're not, please, prove me wrong. Give me a good reason why you 've been here for so long.

Pollies, please,.....I have seen this question posted a number of times, but no good answer.

Flame on if you will, but please, give me a good reason.

Wha..Cha...er..uh. Your fryin my brain man. You ask a question on line 2 of your post. You answer your own post and then point out the irrelevence of it in line 3. Didn't your lobotomy take?

I would not say that it is to late to change anyone's mind. Just this past weekend, we had a get together at my home with two other couples. One couple had children, the other couple did not. When the topic turned over to what I was drying in the dehydrator, the door opened up. I stepped inside. I knew that there was a possibility that I could click a few brain cells of one couple, but had been informed that the other couple was closed to the idea that Y2K could be a possibility.

We talked for a couple of hours on the subject, and let's just say that I know of four more people that are now making preps. One of the couples live out in the boonies on a few acres with a well. There is discussion that if all hell breaks out, we will all go there. Us and the other couple (with the kids) will be bringing our supplies with us when we go.

So Chicken... it still isn't too late!

Chicken Little,

It is always too late to change a closed mind; never too late to change an open one.

Dear Mr. Little

Sir why is it that when I welcome you back. You seem to just up and disappear on me. One would think sir that you were avoidng me.Why? I'm sure I don't know. But it does give one the thought that you either think that I am too far beneath your expertise in power production, to be answeared. Or else you think that I will go away if ignored.

Neither of the two above asumptions are valid I assure you. So once again sir. Would you like to come out and play start-up engineer with me.
