Idiot on the radio today @ y2K (KLIF 570 AM, DALLAS) : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

As I was making my murderous one hour commute through Dallas today, I caught a radio talk show about Y2K on KLIF 570 AM. The host was Kevin McCarthy. He ACTUALLY said that the program manager there had decided, as a hoax, to play about 30 seconds of static right after midnight on 1/1/00 just to play a little game. DISGUSTING! Then he commented that the thing that has him worried most is the human panic factor. <>> DUH! And that little joke will be HI-larious!

Then he said that he is a "little bit" more worried b/c of the IBM thing. I was disgusted. THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND NOR HINGE ON FRIGGIN WALL STREET!!!!!!!!! It is amazing to me that it takes things affecting wall street to get people to say "Du-uh hey honey maybe we should buy some extra tp, huh?" One guy called in to admit he had prepared and said he had 3000 rounds of ammo to defend his family and a yrs worth of food and water supply. The following callers made fun of him endlessly.

I wanted to call up and say hey, I am so glad none of your idiot listeners, including that clueless programmer who could say nothing more than "Nothin's gonna happen" think that anything IS going to happen, b/c hey it gives me and the hubby more time to get those last minute preps done.

Sheesh. Sorry, I was excited thinking there was actually going to be some intelligent discussion on the issue and all it was was the same old BS.

Dude, you should have caught last night's "Cosby" show. Now, THAT asinine piece of Y2K okee-dokee would have sent you through the roof.

Only 3000 rds of ammo? What a whimp........

KOS, I missed that Cosby episode last night. Just for my amusement, can you tell me why it was so dumb? And I just can't wait for the NBC "Y2K" movie in November. I'll bet that one will be REALLY intelligent.

ohhhh, are the witty-bitty doomers mad because the sane world isn't putting out pointless fear monger propaganda? Because the y2k scenarios portrayed are not up to your end of the world fantasies? I bet you hope for the y2k movie to end in the deaths of millions, or even billions, don't you. You sick perverts. Some of you just got a hard-on from even THINKING about the mass deaths you HOPE will come from y2k.

Grow up.

I beg to differ. The movie to watch is Y2K: Year To Kill. The NBC one has been nothing but a publicity stunt from start to finish, and one can alreayd tell the story line is unbelieveable. It reminds of the old 1960's movie Panic In The City. Yeah, yeah, the one guy, who discovers...blah blah...and single handedly saves untold millions blah balh. Needless to say I won't be watching the sheeple flick.

Year To Kill was made by specialists in horror movies. Let that sink deeply in. It's been completely hushed, is not being released in any theater, not on cable, not on t.v., it's not in video stores but costs almost a hundred "for release to video stores." Hmmmm, I suspect an evil Uncle Sam doesn't want people to see the "real" Y2K movie. Real as in being the one made REALLY for and about the Y2K theme with no distractions. If I can make it until next week without spending one dime I am ordering it from I intend to own Y2K: Year To Kill.

Actually Jade, I am a woman, making getting a hard on of any kind pretty difficult. And it is actually *your* attitude that is typical and base. I thought all of your ilk had gone away quietly. People who are preparing/have prepared have proven themselves to be, like myself and my family, pretty normal. None of my neighbors would believe in a million years that we have a years worth of food and water storage (we definitely don't have 3000 rounds of ammo, though). I personally hope NOTHING happens at all. I LOVE my life the way it is. I LOVE my job. Yep, seriously. I don't want millions or even thousands or hundreds to die at all! No one else in my extended family even comes close to getting it, so that would mean they are toast, along with everyone else. Who wants that?

Methinks YOU are the sicko for even suggesting that people who are smart enough to prepare for contingencies in life WANT people to die.

Grow up.

Wow Jade!

Devastating critique. I'm impressed. One of these days you'll even have a fact or two to back up your obviously ignorant viewpoint. Boy, your post really convinced me.....that you're a moron!!!

better look again Lisa. {mumble mumble, "now where WAS that thread on taking wagers how many billions would die?" mumble mumble}

Who the heck is Lisa?

Ohio Bob, there is a thread that discusses last night's Cosby episode, look for it. The plot, such as it was, is described.

KOS, thanks, I found it!
