Hey Flint, what do you want to argue about next?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Except for our different opinion on Y2K, Flint and I get along pretty well. Now that Y2K is (almost ?) over, what are we going to do? We can't fight about "censorship" because I agree with you.

Looks like we may have to crack open a few Heinekens, and just "forget about it".

How's is going Flint? <:)=

Whydontya just get a room????????

-- Porky (Porky@in.cellblockD), March 07, 2000.

PS - One nice thing about the "other" board is that I can change that last "is" to "it". I won't get into some of the other things there, that aren't so nice, if you know what I mean...

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), March 07, 2000.

LOL Porky. I don't think so, but I might buy him a drink. <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), March 07, 2000.

Porky, I always laughed at your posts, you have a way with words!

-- archiver (Archiverr@archiverr.xcom), March 07, 2000.

You would, he's only 16, and only you would laugh.

-- (anti-archiver@hates.fakes), March 07, 2000.

Jeez, all the smart, sexy ones are gay. Go figure =P

-- cin (cinlooo@aol.com), March 08, 2000.


So true!


-- laura (ladylogic@......), March 08, 2000.

Hey, don't talk about Porky that way! <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), March 08, 2000.

"Jeez, all the smart, sexy ones are gay."

That's what the butt-ugliest girls say because they can't get any guys to go out with them. They usually end up becoming lesbians.

-- (fact@of.life), March 08, 2000.

I hate to agree with Archiever but I always liked Porky's posts also. He seemed to inject just the right amount of ribald humor to what were otherwise some pretty heavy threads. Don't know if that brand of humor would be appreciated at the "sanitized" board though.

-- Jim Cooke (JJCooke@yahoo.com), March 08, 2000.

Well, we can't have that! Lesbians are banned from this forum (Very Large Grin). Geesh, how many different handles do you have Hawk?

-- Ra (tion@l.1), March 08, 2000.

factoflife...speaking from experience?

There's just something about your confession that I don't get....if a guy doesn't want you, what makes you think a girl would want you?

-- cin (cinlooo@aol.com), March 08, 2000.


Do you really think that was Hawk? Just because it was moronic, juvenile, and crude....oh, I guess you might be right.

-- Jim Cooke (JJCooke@yahoo.com), March 08, 2000.


-- cin (cinlooo@aol.com), March 08, 2000.

Sysman, it's obvious that old man Flint has lost his sense of humor just when us doomies are finding it.

Take care

-- Flint (jvilches@sminter.com.ar), March 08, 2000.

SORRY, sorry everyone. The post above should have been signed "George", NOT 'Flint'. My mistake. Apologies. Won't happen again!

-- George (jvilches@sminter.com.ar), March 08, 2000.

Y2K is almost over? Its a year 2000 problem. This is only March 8. Lets see who is having the last laugh on May 8.

Tick Tock Boom - Time Bomb 2000

-- ,-, (comma@dash.comma), March 08, 2000.

If you're talking about high priced gasoline, you're probably right, comma@dash. But if your talking about that big, old mean Time Bomb of 2000, I'll bet you All my dried pinto beans you are wrong!

Would a smart polly, or someone please post how many dates have come, and gone, and come, and gone and nothing catastrophic occurred. Sure would be interesting reading.

Not buyin' FUD again? That old Brer' Rabbit ain't gonna' con me no more!

-- gilda (jess@listbot.com), March 08, 2000.

10-4 on that Gilda! I too would like some help on this date in May and what disasters will not happen.

-- Ra (tion@l.1), March 08, 2000.

Ra - gilda -- haven't you heard? This is the new basis for FUD >

Subject: whoa...Help me.. gotta feeling I just can't shake. Posted By: Chemtrail Pilot (Global user) Posted At: 3/7/00 10:02:12 am From IP: Reply Ever feel like the other shoe is getting ready to drop?

Like something bad is getting ready to happen?

Like the battle for good and evil ain't going so great for good?

You hear a rumbleing in the distance and you are not sure what it is.

Or if its coming for you.

Like you just want to grab your kids and family and hold them tight and protect.? Like you have got some huge butterflies doing their thing?

You just want to vomit.

Like your throat is swelling and its getting hard to breathe?

Know what I mean?

This just slowly started coming over me Sunday night and slowly building.

Anybody else felling it?

Like Flint said on another thread -- resorting to zero facts at all as their basis for truth. Not necessary anymore I suppose. The circle is complete.

The good news is, only a total fool or complete idiot could ever be led astray by that bunch of memes now :-)

-- (doomerstomper@usa.net), March 08, 2000.

It IS March 8th! Is today teotwawki? =oP

-- cin (cinlooo@aol.com), March 08, 2000.

Don't rush it Cin, we still have two months to live.

-- Ra (tion@l.1), March 08, 2000.

Hi doomstomper, I read that post on the old forum and I wanted to reply, but was afraid I'd be stomped into cyber-ground as most all were testifying to their personal demons and terrors.

But in all honesty, I've had the feeling. One morning I woke up with that feeling of dread, and I got up and stepped on a big, wet hairball my cat had thrown up.

Then for some unknown reason the coffee pot clogged and ran all over the cabinet and onto the floor.

I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it didn't because the new puppy had chewed it to bits.

When I went to the basement for catfood and saw all those cans and buckets and jars of tuna and beans and carrots and peas and beets and stew and soup and sardines and mackeral, I wanted to vomit, like your throat is swelling and it's getting hard to breathe. Know what I mean??? Instant mashed potatoes! AAAhhhhgggggg!

Tell me exactly what is going to happen in May, if you please? I'm sure doomstomper and RA would like to know too. Any other dates we need to worry about. Cause when they come and go, I'm going to laugh, and hoho, and hhaha and yell I TOLD YOU SO, you poor old doomers. Even though I bought into it, I heard a big ration of shit towards nay sayers, so the worm has turned and I intend to enjoy it.

-- gilda (jess@listbot.com), March 08, 2000.

Gilda, don't you know?!?!?

[doomer rant mode]

Its the planetary alignment, you polly fool!

while you sleep the planets will aligne and the gravitational pull will wipe the *%&^#&$^%$## smiles off the ignorant polly happy faces!!!!


[/doomer rant mode]

Simple, huh?

-- Super Polly (FU_Q_Y2kfreaks@hotmail.com), March 08, 2000.

LOL! Gilda - sounds like we have a lot in common. You know, it's too easy to FEED that fear by frequenting the doom boards like a junkie needing a fix. It's amazing how fresh the air and bright the sun when you push away from the keyboard and see there is a whirrld out there worth enjoying, rather than "surviving".

It was a good lesson for us gilda. Deceptions come in many forms and discernment is the greatest survival tool...it doesn't need rotating either :-)

-- (doomerstomper@usa.net), March 08, 2000.

gilda, LOL! That was beautiful! I will be prepared, forever, Heaven Help.

-- another (worm@turner.com), March 08, 2000.

I so do not understand. (yeah, like that's BF news, eh?)

Do not indulge in self-flagellation over preparing.

There are millions upon million of dead homo sapiens sapiens who died - far before their time - because they hadn't the capacity to understand their environment - financial, epidemiological, climatalogical - as our recent generation(s).

Who lived lives just as we do.. but with no sense of history or future. And no sense of material survival requirements, should availability go south.

(Don't get me wrong: before this, I ran out of everything, every day - milk, bread, dog food, gas -- because JIT is all I've ever known.)

You make it sound like preparing for trouble is just downright idiotic.

We're probably the first generation to feel such 'shame' for actively implementing personal risk-aversion strategies.

Or, at least the teensy % (us) that chose to buy insurance.

-- lisa (lisa@work.now), March 08, 2000.

I think perhaps the reason you do not understand is that, for many, the debate was not about preparing, but about "what would happen." I believe Flint has pointed out on many occasions that he was quite well- prepared even though he continued to stress why he believed that Y2K would not amount to very much. Many equated his position with "anti- preparation" which it clearly was not.

-- (hmm@hmm.hmm), March 08, 2000.

Hey, what's going on? I just wanted to say hi to my old pal Flint, who it seems hasn't been here today.

Sheesh! <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), March 09, 2000.


BS !!!!... Flint prepped then ran around kicking ant hills to stroke his ego... this way he could claim he was right no matter which way it goes.... and it ain't over till it's over...


Absolutely correct, my parents are in their 70's and they have always had a full pantry..... I remember the way my Grand Parents shopped, no JIT for them... maybe I was brought up different from the "pollys", but it wasn't all that hard, or expencive for me to "prep", because of the way I was brought up, and where I live... I just bought more of it :-)

The Diesel I bought?.. got that at .50c below todays price and it looks like it is going up.... BTW, the storage containers are like pop cans, returnable... Long term staples?... bought at bulk for 1/2 price, storage included.... I shoot as a hobby, so the extra 1500 rounds I bought, of various cals. will be used, BTW, I hunt and shoot as a hobby. I practice a lot :-) Probably next time I buy ammo it will be much more expensive.

Guess I'll be CPR's next victim of the Y2k profiteer outings, wonder how big of a file he has on me? Ya, I saved $ from Y2k... Geezzz... think he will Debunk Me and publish what he "thinks" is my personal BIO?... I hope that the poor guy that got all the spam from CPR's fans, and is still wondering what happened to him, doesn't get hit again (and he is still not impressed.... 6 months later :-)

Bottom line... there are extremists nuts, egomaniacs, and people that take care of their own on this issue..... I'll leave the tech stuff for the techs :-)

-- Netghost (ng@no.yr), March 09, 2000.

Hi Sysman,

I'll argue with you on any subject about which you hold the wrong opinion [grin]. If there is one, let me know.

Mostly I'm just watching the remarkable resentment people express at the idea that I *demand* that they use their minds and actually think. I'm from the old school, I guess, where I have a certain faith that people can always improve themselves with effort. Many here (like Netghost illustrates) are from the "new" school, that advocates a policy of not "hurting the feelings" of those too lazy to do better by pointing it out.

Decker (on another thread) is quite right. I've never criticized spelling, grammar, or weak articulation. I've always treated as adults those who act that way, however they express themselves. Those who throw spitwads thoughtlessly deserve contempt, and I damn well *give* it to them.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), March 09, 2000.

Oh come on Flint,

There are few that haven't seen you for what you are, but go ahead and play your games...... Have fun :-)
