Carl! You must be effective, the Big Fat Idiot board is parodying you! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

When you draw the attention of the Bonkers bunch it's a clear measure of your effectiveness. I think Jarl Cenkins would have been more creative as a handle but what the hell. Keep on postin', Carl!!!

Chemical Accident In Upper Midwest. Quick Cleanup Follows: No Injuries Reported

Forum: Gary North is a Big Fat Idiot Forum Date: Feb 15, 14:03 From: C arl J enkin S

Disaster was averted outside of Chicago, Illinois when local residents acted quickly to contain a chemical spill that occurred at 9:05 CST. The chemical, a blue fluid commonly sold as a cleaning solvent used primarily on windows, covered an area of approximately 146 square inches immediately following the accident.

Noticing the spill, Anne Farley, 26, quickly dispatched a clean-up crew led by her daughter, Rebecca, 7, in order to quell the insidious window-cleaner before it began to spread. "Within 40 seconds, it would have seeped under the refrigerator. I would have hated to move it what with all the new waterlines and everything behind it." an obviously terrified Farley stated.

Cleanup activities terminated at 9:07, approximately 2 minutes after the spill with no injuries reported to onlookers or cleanup workers. Using approximately 3 large sheets of absorbent material in conjunction with moderately pressurized circular arm movements, the actual cleaning process took 45 seconds, 3 times faster than the leading brand.

Evidence of the spill was still visible on the tile flooring in the form of a bright sparkly patch, leading some experts to believe that this fluid may be able to be used on household surfaces as well as windows.

No cause for the accident was given, linking it directly to potential Y2K problems. The Y2k problem occurs due to a programming problem whereby two digit dates rather than 4 digit dates were..THWACK.....

Cleanup costs were estimated at a $.006, with costs to replace the chemical stock exceeding $9.50, which included collateral costs of a pack of gum and a Pokemon "Jungle" pack.

What kind of sick twisted person is this Anne Farley....surely she must be a monster! Sending a SEVEN YEAR OLD to clean up a chemical spill of such toxic measures!!! IMHO, this woman should be brought up on child endangerment charges.

I think Carl posted this himself in order to both mock himself and those who think they are so superior.

Thanks. I got a good laugh out of that. I am truly honored! Parody is the highest form of compliment! Maybe I'll write one myself.....

Trolls and pollies flail about, so upset....why? Y2K is a done deal. Then why do they come here and taunt us when they should be applying their new found consciousness toward the glorious New Age that has just dawned. They need not worry. The higher power will take us out so the New Age may properly flourish. Methinks they protest too much!

Hmmm. I always thought that it was imitation that was the highest form of compliment.

Never mind. In this case Carl is absolutely correct.
