The Homer Beanfang and Goldbugs forum : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Is this a sign of where we go from here on out?

I hope not!

Where are all the original posts from forum regulars from long ago?

What contribution have you made lately?

-- Johnny (JLJTM@BELLSOUTH.NET), October 05, 1999.

I think its just a lull. There's always the Debunking Y2K site. Tonight's topics:

Hyatt is a Weasel

North is a sick Doom-Zombie

Toast-Ed Your-Done-for is a cash hungry pig

Memes are reproducing faster than expected

'a' backing off TEOTW - says only another Great Depression in the works

-- a (a@a.a), October 05, 1999.

Thanks to Homer Beanfang the Forum gets many apropo articles about real-life tear-hair computer failures. CLUES! Keep the Homers coming, and thanks for the great service you provide, Mr/s Beanfang. And happy Halloween :-)

No, it's true, they've left us for a private board. Diane, please give me the URL, I'll just lurk, I promise!.......

I like Homer's stuff, but I wish he would post more about gold.


-- dave (, October 05, 1999.

Shore do, KOS, and btw, my e-dress is real! I'm calling your bluff! (be kind, I'm just a country girl...)

-- sandi (, October 05, 1999.

Yep That's it sandi. Here's a transcript from last night's secret session:

E.Coli: So, by outlawing the post 1981 AR-15 autosears, the Bilderberg's have guaranteed that the coming uprising in the Bronx can be handled by the Vatican's troops, which are being positioned as we speak, in apartment complexes owned by the Bush family.

Dieter: WeLl!!! DeITer still THinKs GoRe wilL PreVAIl! DeMoCRatiC InFieDEL!! SwinE!!!

William Casey: I'm horny.

Diane: Quit trying to change the subject Bill. Now we were talking about shocked quartz crystals....

BD: I sure wish Andy would visit the prep forum more often.

Ed Yourdon: Hey, anybody want to buy this palette of overpriced y2k videos? There's still some slots in the tenth tier open.

Lately, the Beanfang postings have been the Y2K "meat and potatoes" I've found to be a bitter feast! Prima facia examples of real Y2K and related failures/meltdowns that de-nihilists still refuse to accept as reality. Go figure!

Keep those postings coming, Beanfang! No disrespect to others intended, but these are the best window for spectators to watch the inevitable progression of the global Y2K meltdown.

The reality postings raise the hard questions and will bring Y2K consequences into reality. The pathetic rhetoric from Pollys that "there have always been systems glitches" rings hollower and hollower as the cacaphony of Y2K systemic anecdotes pile up!

How many of the ~6,000 (economic blood line) cargo ships has the USCG turned away to-date for lack of compliance? The last count I saw was 150! What's that--2.5%?! What's the "critical mass" for this realistic defensive strategy to bring serious Y2K economic consequences to "untouchable" USA shores?

How many state DMV Y2K-induced "computer glitches" will it take bring economic consequences by virtue of the inability or costly--we, the consumers, will _pay through the nose_--delay to big and/or small commercial trucks to get new and renewals of licenses to keep the vaunted USA distribution pipelines moving?

How many Y2K system glitches does it take to adversely impact students and staff in school systems and universities?

How much telecommunications downtime is required to push dependent businesses--large and small--past the brink of bankruptcy due to lost revenues?

What is the tolerance of peace officers to the lack of timely LEIN data before it pushes them past the dark edge of paranoia?

What is the bearable threshold of vendors, and their over-the- shoulder (salivating) bankster creditors, to large/small government customers with systems that refuse to spit out payments and/or purchase orders?

Where is that unknown crest of the Y2K "river" that will flood the perceptions of politicians into the realm of state/national "emergency" proclamations, calling out FEMA and DoD goons and hooligans to quell the Y2K beast in the names of cyber-terrorism and pursuit of domestic tranquility?

The warnings have all been stated, loud and clearly. All that remains is for the GIs to sit tight and watch the chairs shifting on the decks of the "S.S. Y2K Titanic" as it begins the agonizing descent of civilizations to circa late 18th (early 19th?) century means and ways.

The fuse of the TimeBomb2000 is quickly approaching the "blasting cap" of the tightly coupled "unknowns"--power grid, telecommunication and financial segments. Only the scope of the damage that the Y2K "powder" will inflict on humanity remains to be seen.

It's probably the Y2K scenario that's perceived to be almost anticlimactic for the "regulars" as it logically and irrevocably unfolds.

The historical legacy of Y2K will be etched in the sand, disappearing from the collective memory of humanity with each lap by the seas of time passing.

It's all over but the whining and "shouting" from the DGIs/DWGIs!

Keep those posts coming, Beanfang!

Regards, Bob Mangus

LOL @ Boks and Dave!

"a", YEEowww! (But funny)

By the way, "What has happened", I agree with Ashton and/or Leska. Homer Beanfang's posts are as on topic as they could possibly be, and I make a point of reading them all. Thanks, Homer!

As for gold, many posters have bought gold over the past year as part of their preps (it would be very interesting to know what percent of us have gold---perhaps another survey?). I bought gold many months ago for the purpose of preserving wealth in the event of economic downturn. It's been exciting to watch it go up, Up, UP and read all the speculation about why this is happening. Gotta admit, it's pretty fun recalculating the value of my "stash" lately, although I don't plan to sell it and didn't buy it for that purpose.

-- RUOK (, October 05, 1999.

I think that's a great line, Bob, about the Homer's posts being the meat and potatoes of Y2K. I simply cannot understand why anyone would complain about the things he posts. Keep it up, Beanie!

Personally, I get bored by all Gold talk, but guess what? I don't have to read those threads...

-- (, October 05, 1999.

I'm not clear about this "beanfang".

Is this the little curled tip at the end of the bean pod?

Could a jelly bean be carved into a little jack-o-lantern with tiny fangs?

Boo! I'm Grape Ghost!

Hand over your Y2K stash! Bwahahahahaha!

-- Randolph (, October 05, 1999.

Homer is the best thing to hit this forum in quite a while. Read between the lines. His stuff is more ON-TOPIC than most.

Pay attention folks, and YOU GO HOMER!!!!!

Tick... Tock... <:00=

-- Sysman (, October 05, 1999.

In the past year, with AMAZING FECUNDITY, this forum has explored countless topics, fears, emotions, visions, predictions, even Y2K dreams. Seems everything's been said but the last ten pages; people are tawked out. As a hypersensitive amoeba, the forum continues to react to, and digest, everything strewn in its path, but seems that now all that is left is to wait: will the asteroid hit Kosky? Or will it deflect off the moon and bounce off some other hemisphere, leaving the U.S.A. entirely unaffected? Stay tuned sports fans.
