There are minds here; why leave?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
I see a 'where to thread' and it is a good question.
This is a good place to read and write. It's still y2k the year and since there are no y2k *problems* we can talk about, there are other *problems* which suite this forum.
Of course I'm an idiot doomer, but I think TIMEbomb is so fitting.. Time is the key..the sh*t will slowly hit the.. and it will have nothing to do with 00. And there is a chance *it* will be what we least expect. The beauty of a forum like this is that you may be less surprised by *it*. There are minds here; why leave?
Are there better places?

No matter what happens, they'll always been someone with a sense of impending doom. Who knows, "Will," you may be right some day. In the mean time, I'd rather enjoy my life and trust my modest lifestyle and even more modest "FEMA-approved" preps. Hey, apocalyptic fiction is often a great read, but I have no desire to build my life around the myriad possibilities of disaster. There are some fine minds on this forum, like McLaughlin, Cook and our man Flint. If they stop by, I will pick up the tab. But on a warm summer's day with a light breeze and the scent of freshly cut grass... would you rather be typing at the computer or sipping a cold drink outside? If "it" comes, I hope "it" finds me happy, relaxed and satisfied having lived a full and rich life. On a related note, "it" comes for us all, sooner or later. All we have is the fleeting moments between birth and death.

Oh, believe me Mr. Decker.. I am able to enjoy every day to the fullest. I am raising children (semi-retired before forty) in one of the safest, cleanest, most beautiful locations on the planet.
No, I love reality and sometimes that entails bad news, it's that simple.
