Well, it's time to say Goodbyegreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
This place has been a never ending supply of entertainment since I've been aware of it, and is very addictive (but then so is crack), But it is time to move on. So I wish everyone well. I will leave you with my admission of being wrong with y2k.
It is Feb. 26th and it appears that that I was 100% wrong about y2k, no actually Paul Milne was 100% wrong about y2k. And if he was 100% wrong about y2k then I was 155% wrong about y2k (55% more wrong due to the 55 more iq points I possess over Paul Milne).
But enough about me being wrong. Let's talk about who was really WRONG - THE POLLIES. If anyone owes us an apology it is the pollies. They were so wrong they were right, which means we were so wrong we were right which means the pollies were so wrong they were WRONG - CRIMINALLY SO.
And then the pollies were so stupid they came over here and claimed victory. THAT IS WRONG! THAT IS WRONG! THAT IS WRONG! In matter of fact that is so wrong it makes me correct. So I am actually 155% correct about y2k and Paul Milne is 100% correct about y2k and Steve Heller is 105% correct about y2k and all of us are correct about y2k and the pollies are totally wrong about y2k and the fat lady is singing and her fat kids are humming and her fat husband is playing the guitar and the fat pollies are now even singing and the fat doomers are rocking out and Richard Simmons is trying to lighten up all of these fat people but he never wants to totally succeed so he has job security, so he can still have celebrity status and appear on Leno and Letterman with all of the singing fat people, and Leno and Letterman continue to make jokes about y2k which proves just how wrong they really are, and the pollies are so stupid they don't even realize they are all supposed to be dead now so they don't need to remind us that we were wrong about y2k even though we were really right about y2k, and any other place on the internet I would be considered ranting but not here on TB2000. Here I'm conisdered on topic, and conversing in a normal rational manner. So I just wanted to say how right we, and Gary North, and Michael Hyatt, and little Mikey of the Adams family really are.
So I will now say goodbye. Although later in the year when the election race really heats up I will probably come back.

You have been quite entertaining in your own way. I hope that your Real Life holds profits for you this quarter.

I for one will miss all of those little nuggets you dropped in the various litter boxes here. Stay worm free.
-- Steve (firstname.lastname@example.org), February 26, 2000.
Butt Nugget, we have appreciated your non-nasty wit. If all trolls were like you we would be laughing and pickitnicking under the bridge. Don't be a stranger!
-- Ashton & Leska in Cascadia (email@example.com), February 26, 2000.
Butt you win a prize for not being vicious.
-- Mara (MaraWayne@aol.com), February 26, 2000.
Your sense of humor and wit are great! Are you really going? Gonna come back and visit?
-- suzy (firstname.lastname@example.org), February 26, 2000.
Happy trails Butt. May you never have constipation problems.
-- haha (email@example.com), February 26, 2000.
i am sorry to see you go, butt. a real person you are. so what's up? did your mother cut off your allowance or something so now you can't afford air time? or are you really a girl and the baby is due any moment? we'll chip in if it means you can stay. things are just starting to get rolling. best wishes.

I, for one, will miss your "against the grain" satire. Satire is sorrely missing in our literary life, and I consider this board a great new form of literature, like the epistemological novels of the 18th century.
We need to gain more contrarian people here-not saying goodbye.
May you never fall flat on your ass.

Don't leave yet Nug, we need you to critique the upcoming feces competition. Next Tuesday there will be several loaves pinched, then later this year the stockmarket will get an enema and the economy will take a major crap.

I don't remember you ever using big fonts and bold colors before, so why start now? It's not like some sendoff or finale, everyone knows you'll come back sooner or later, even flint did.
-- Someone (ChimingIn@twocents.cam), February 26, 2000.
At least check back. Say "Hi", on occasion...
I just got here, dammit (1/1/2000). I feel lke I'm missing all the "good" people on both sides of the argument!
There are a few still around, though...
