Can I come out now? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I have been hunched under my desk for almost 240 hours, waiting for the bright flash from the first nuclear war in a long time. I'm getting stiff. When's the war going to start, ANYWAY?

Anybody heard any updates?

Jeez, you missed the whole darn thing. It has already come and gone. The rest of us are glowing in the dark. You can come out whenever you damn well please.

In the shakeout, we did lose one of the two most powerful men on the face of the earth. Unfortunately, it was the wrong one!

His replacement's first official act was to "not" accept a call from the President of the United States. On Monday, his next official act was to toss Boris's daughter out as well.

....but the good news Squatty, is we left a light on for ya! Well, most of them anyways!

If you hadn't been wearing that stupid tinfoil hat, you would have been able to her the transmissions we sent to your fillings.

Squatty; The truly sad thing is if you stick around long enough it is going to happen again. The true miracle is that it has not happened in a long time. Unfortunatly, children forget history.

It should be safe to come out for the time being.

Donna, Now I'll be singing Wooden Ships all day...can't get the tune out of my head. God...I miss the music from those good old days! Bye bye Miss American Pie.... =)

This is the funniest thread I've read in awhile.

Squatty--when you emerge, tinfoil hat in hand, be ready for a barrage of this type:

"Wattaya gonna do,/i> with all this sh*t?...It's ok to store food, I guess, but now your kids have no place to play!"

The world is filled w/ these things, and they're ignorant and nasty. But that's alright, because they're not important.
