    All the usual caveats and everything, but, if this is true, the demolition of the Constitution happened, not because of 9/11, but because these people were authoritarian yahoos from jump and they were finally in a position to hijack self-government.

    It was the whole Y2K thing, right?
     
  3. Hey, I remember that.
    The world ended.

    The Y2K hype reminds me a lot of the global warming hype.

    Glad to see you're keeping up your delusions.

    That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane -
    Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -
    world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
    speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
    down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for
    hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
    breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
    crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
    common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
    own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
    reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
    light, feeling pretty psyched.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower. Slash and burn,
    return, listen to yourself churn. Lock him in uniform and book burning,
    blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a candle,
    light a motive. Step down, step down. Watch a heel crush, crush. Uh oh,
    this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear! A tournament,
    a tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives
    and I decline.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide. Mount St. Edelite.
    Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
    Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic,
    slam, but neck, right? Right.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...fine...

    (It's time I had some time alone)

    My delusions? Then why has Mars been warming? There is no man on Mars. You're not driving your SUV on Mars, are you. What's causing the warming on Mars? Here are some NASA "delusions" for you.

    As I've stated all along, the earth's temperatures go in cycles. It's never constant. Never has been.

    Here's a little more reading for you. The fact that one has to go to an Australian newspaper site should also tell you something about the bias in the media here.

  8. It would.
    William Gray, by the way, is a crank on many levels. Ask climatologists.
    Funny how the topic changed from the authoritarian yahoos whom you and your secret radio friends support.

    The Y2K issue was very real and as big of a problem as could be imagined. However, it was well contained and a few updates here and there took care of things. The biggest impacts were to older industries that relied on outdated machinery.

    This is why I thank God for Al Gore every night before I go to bed.

    Nothing changed on 1/1/01. The only thing that changed was my age. It was my 25th birthday.
     
  12. Congrats.
    A New Year's baby?
    Your parents must have had a high BCS ranking for you to be born then.
    God, the potential for hangovers on 1/2 must be limitless.
    Anyway, more of this:
