Why I prepared for Y2K...(no apologies)greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
100 pounds of white rice...$30.
500 rounds of .223 ammo...$90.
3 cords of firewood and a wood stove...$300.
A warm dish of food when my child tells me "Daddy, I'm hungry..."

How new age, gen-x, touchy feely can ya get???
Somtimes I envision a hundred doomers all donning a Don Quioxte mask and going out to try and save the world, from a non-existant Y2K bug.

Well it sounds like Mr. ABC doesnt have children! I being a father of 8 beautiful kids, heeded the warning signs and made prudent plans. It only the begining. And even if we muddle through with little probs. There is a whole lot of other dangers on horizon. Stay focussed.

You people are f-ing crazy.
If you believe for a moment that we were going to have SIGNIFICANT problems, then you've got oatmeal where your brains belong. Yes, there will be "glitches" here and there, and minor hassles. But the companies that run the power, gas, banks, and the cities running police, fire, water, sewers, and the stores, are all in the business of MAKING MONEY!
And in case any of you freakin' idiots has forgotten, they don't like to lose money, nor do they like to be sued. The only guy to worry about is the small businesses like your dry cleaner.
Sorry you're so disappointed that nothing happened.
