OT, humour: Gary South gives an alternative viewpointgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Just in case you haven't been there, Gary South offers a sort of Star Trek parallel universe version of Gary North's site.
Not as informative, but you can read it in a lunch-hour. :)

If Y2K wasn't so serious, this might, and I'm stretching it, be funny. People just can't take anything seriously anymore. It's all a big joke.

Agreed. So many people are going to die and someone wants to make jokes about it. Sickening.
Colin's really turning into a troll these days.

When I found the Gary South site months ago it served me very well for some direly needed comic relief. It's called "Dark Humor," folks. It's not sick. Dark humor helps us deal with the otherwise overwhelming. Historically, when terrible things happen, dark humor evolves that helps those involved cope with it all.
