New Y2K Game: Death Pools

In this edition of as Steve's World Turns, we see him using the high-fiving of the impending deaths of millions as an opening to share his interest in Ham radio. So convinced and umoved by the prospect of millions dying in some foregone conclude digital apocalypse, Steve gets a hard-on and strokes his mic instead with the other GI's at Ed Yourdon's book-selling annex TB2000.

Have a slick retort to this golden oldie Steve Heller of verbose resume fame?

Wow. A classic thread. 4 million dead for y2k? roflmao!

And following the links back to Greg Canton of "Lumen Foods" shows a serious y2k huckster/hypster and outright fraud at work. They had a "chat" room, and I remember reading a post about DD1light (fake oil insider who claimed y2k would devastate oil AND power) chatting her doom there.

Wish I had known this link earlier, would certainly have put Gret Canton of Lumen Foods in my "Worst of Y2K" list....what a con-artist.

Wow, and that was mid-1999! That thread reinforces what I wrote about the changing tenor of discussion. By that time, according to Yourdon pigs had already taken wing. ALL spike dates had passed without incident. NERC had announced essential compliance across the board. The government was announcing 99% compliance everywhere. Banks and Wall Street were trumpeting successful test results. Hired gun remediators were standing in unemployment lines. Shortages of "preparation" supplies had never happened and stores were overstocked. Greg Lumen was getting desperate.

And Heller, A&L and company had abandoned any pretense of observing the real world. That thread is a trip through a very dark fantasyland indeed. Talk about your alternate reality!

there is a funny thread on "Soyboy Caton" somewhere in the archives here.....but....yawn.....it's past my nigh-nigh time!

Greg soybean Caton made more than 2 million dollars selling survival food in 1998 and 1999. You think he might have had a motive to spread FUD? Ask yourself these questions:

(1). How helpful was Steve Heller to all of the Y2K hucksters?

(2). How many people purchased preps because an expert like Heller warned them of the certain doom to come?

(3). If Heller in fact made no money from this then how extra fucking stupid must he be to allow himself to be used like that?

(4). If Heller did make money from this why hasnt someone shoved his nuts down his throat?

(5). Why would anyone besides Heller himself come on this forum and support this sorry piece of human waste?

The Charlatans are off to their next scam leaving dummies like Heller waving their little weenies and whimpering to salvage some degree of respectability.

"There are over 6,000 documents on this site. This is growing by over 200 a month. The evidence is rolling in from all sides now, and the vast bulk of it says that the Year 2000 Problem (y2k) is not being dealt with fast enough."

Opps, I was wrong, bye-bye :)
