Well, the pig roast is over. We all had a good time.
Very few Y2K types attended. No skin off my nose. Tom Beckner was prevented from coming at the last minute. I am sorry for that because he came down the weekend before to help in the construction of the cooker. I was up a creek and could not have finished in time without his help. Cory came down from norhtern VA and Bob Doyle came all the way down from Massachusetts. It was very good to see them. Jacques Bernier called from Quebec, and so did Greg Schmeelk from West Virginia.
The pig, about 175 pounds live weight, went on the cooker at 6 in the morning and was done at just after noon. It came out delicious.
We had a nice demonstration by six of the members of the Virginia Greys Fife and Drum Corps which included martial pieces from The War of Northern Agression and musket firing. Guests had the opportunity to fire the muskets as well.
I want to thank all the people who contriuted to the pig roast. It was very much appreciated.
And on one final note, I broke down and bought ten "Sherman's"...that is, green resin lawn chairs. A fitting end to all that was Y2K.
If you live within five miles of a 7-11, you're toast.

No dunking booth?

According to Cory, the dunking booth was there, but no hardcore pollies showed up to the party to dunk him.

Interesting, this CPR individual is projecting, applying his own denial to someone else. In reality, the Paul Milne individual has put Y2K behind him and moved on to live a functional life, while CPR will not let it go, neurotically rehashing his repressed anger and frustration over this issue.
"A fitting end to all that was Y2K." says Paul Milne

One is left wondering what this "fitting end" actually fit, since it certainly didn't come close to fitting any of Milne's 10,000+ posts on the subject.
The best "fit" is to Milne's current attitude of "Let's pretend I never said all those things after all." This isn't denial?
Oh well, we're all safe and sound, and responsibility for one's behavior is something *others* should accept.

For Milne to "celebrate" anywhere NEAR the 4th of July is sheer hypocrisy. He and North forget it is the Blood of many dead men and women in many wars that enable them to use the rights of the Declaration and the First Amendment.
As for MILNE "putting Y2k behind him" .>>>>>>BULL SHIT<<<<<<. He wants everyone to forget the FUD he stir up as the Y2k Expert & Pig Farmer.
Please don't forget that PAUL MILNE was shown to be a TOTAL ASSHOLE AND LONG BEFORE 1/1/2000. He pulled "a Gary". "I was wrong again, sorry, bye (for now but I'm researching the next great threat to "the Remnant". MILNE is just as bad. His anti-income tax BS is still on line and remember he COLLECTED WELFARE FROM THE "SYSTEM" HE RANTED ABOUT. :

Oh my, you poor boy, so much anger!
I rest my case.

Just thinking of all that fat collecting in their veins, while those of us getting together in October will bedoing healthy things like bngy jumping, walking the strip and working on our right arm muscles.
Think about it though, what the two different groups are doing at their get-togethers.

Milne was stunningly, completely wrong in his 10,000 public postings about Y2K. He was a pig farmer before his 15 minutes of dubious notoriety. Now he's returned to the obscurity of pig farming, leaving the internet a quieter and more sane envirnoment without his "drinking dog piss out of a rusty hubcap" claptrap. Good.
Creeper, you could put a tattoo on yurass that said you were Ozymandias King of Kings, but you'd still be just a raving real estate salesman from Texas. Buy a clue from Milne's pig clue farm.

Ceeper has been doing that all of his life.

Cherri, have you ever partaken of a "pig roast"? I admit, it doesn't sound terribly appetizing, but a friend of my mine, many moons ago, used to have these parties every summer in PA. It would be a "theme" (i.e., one year was a luau, another year was a Western theme, there was a '60s return to Woodstock, etc.). But the "highlight" (if you will) was always the "pig roast".
Her Dad would get it going at like 6 AM on a spit over an open fire. He'd baste it with beer and water (always taking care to constantly turn it) until sometime between 1 PM and 3 PM when It Was Done. I'm not a great lover of pork, but oh-my-goodness.....this stuff literally melted in your mouth. Absolutely amazing.
I also knew a group of bikers that used to do an annual pig roast in Maspeth, Queens (they might still; haven't seen them in years). They would do it in an industrial area on a Saturday (right in the middle of the street), so there was no "traffic". They'd coordinate with the police and all that so there were no "interruptions". What a blast.
Personally, I think it's debatable whether "bungee jumping" can be considered "healthy" :-)

I would guess that most people were too smart to get anywhere near a sub-human as unstable as milne is.
