Y2K...WHAT HAPPENED ? Been camping for 2 weeks...power still on....WHY?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I heard everything was going to collapse. So I went camping and everything looks OK. This is a real joke. Here I left thinking we were in serious trouble. So called experts who know absolutely nothing. Now I'm in real trouble with work, friends and family. Dam it.

Y2K was always about "contingency" planning. "Smart" doomers had contingency plans for a pollie scenario - even if they didn't "expect" one. That's what makes them wise, practical, resourceful icons of the community - unlike the fickle, self gratifying sheeple pollies that are the scourge of the "community."

Yes,I guess not following the likes of Gary North makes me the scum of the universe. Going to go have myself flogged and then thrown into a pit with no provisions to die a slow painful death to repent for not buying that the end of the world was coming about as he predicted.
Gosh, I was so stupid! Who wants my AOL stock, I wont be needing it now.

Take some responsibility in your life! Nobody knew what was going to happen. I prepared big-time but I'm not whining and complaining for 2 reasons. 1) Having way too much tuna, batteries, etc. is way better than needing them! 2) I'm a grown man and there's nobody to whine and moan to, I read what I chose to read, verfified the information in the matter I deemed neccessary (while making life-altering decisions), and made my own bed - now I'm sleeping in it! Grow up and take responsibility for your own life (unless you really are a child?).

I know the feelin' ORIS. We thought the world was going to end and it didn't and it SUCKS! Oh well, I think I will go take a hot shower.

Oris....I hope you posted this with tongue in cheek....You might have resembled the post WWII Japanese soldiers on those remote outposts otherwise...you know the ones; twenty years later, they're still hiding out in the boondocks thinking the war is still going on?

I blame the French. For everything. Ever.
