"Nigh" in lieu of "near" would have scored you more points.

The Y2K hysteria was about as amusing as those who called New Year's 2000 as the start of the new millennium.

I can't wait for 2048 to make me some Y2K jokes

Wait what? Y2K? Bleh... I guess I really do need coffee.

Sinister Steve, :P at you! I knew it wasn't the actual millenium, but damned if I was going to miss the partying. Grumpy Guses are always welcome to stay home. :)

F*ck. Don't tell me it's 1999 again.
 
2006-12-31 05:49:36 PM  
I'm so prepared, I went 6 years into the future and saw that everything was okay.
 
2006-12-31 05:49:36 PM  
I miss y2k. I was in IT making a shiatload of money, Bush hadn't farked up the country yet and I was dating a psychopathic bisexual gothic stripper with homicidal tendencies.

Now I'm poor, in film school and dating college girls.

I guess things aren't that bad.

Yea, thanks to Y2K, I could have been in Boston pretending I give a rat's ass about Vivaldi.

/Of course, there's also that damn Randy Newman
 
2006-12-31 05:56:25 PM  
The most insidious aspect of Y2K is that you never know when it's going to strike.

"... Well see, they wrote all this bank software, and, uh, to save space, they used two digits for the date instead of four. So, like, 98 instead of 1998? Uh, so I go through these thousands of lines of code and, uh... it doesn't really matter. I uh, I don't like my job, and, uh, I don't think I'm gonna go anymore."

Ringshadow: please tell me wind-up flashlights won't be a fad again.

The only flashlight my roommate owns is one of those shake-to-charge flashlights. And the capacitors are dead so the only way to get a decent amount of light out of it is to shake it WITH the light on.

I saw him doing that one power outage and told him to hold his horses - went out to my car and gave him the flashlight out of my trunk.


/A vote for me is a vote for better capacitor design

I hope all the doomsday food I ate is still good. Chili looks the same going out as it did going in.

I desperately need an excuse to consume those MREs that I bought. I think I have about two weeks worth.

To show you how totally farked up some Americans really are
this is from a just taken poll.
Poll: Americans See Gloom, Doom in 2007
http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/12/31/D8MC394G0.html

25 percent anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ.
And we can thank these retarded morons for bushleague and all his great accomplishments.

The only thing cool that happened to me on Y2k is I got paid $500 to work to make sure the ISP I worked at didn't melt down after Y2k. There was an issue with authentication for an ISP we just purchased (going into the year 2000 caused everyone's account to be suspended for the bought out ISP, which was easily fixed... they were a shiatty shop, anyway), but other than that, nothing happened and I got an easy $500.
 
2006-12-31 06:10:29 PM  
I saw The Second Coming of Jesus. Good flick - if you like bukakke.

You mean she is tight. It's called Rigor mortis. You may want to soak her in a tub of warm water first.

\ewwww!
