Underground since Y2K? Should have waited till Y2Obama


y2kAs we approach another Christmas and New Year, news from the underground, literally, of the most celebrated, and feared, New Years Eve (1999) and New Years Day (2000) has been received from CBC radio of a man who’s fear of the dreaded Y2K virus that was supposed to cause planes to fall out of the sky, trains to run off their tracks and nuclear missiles to launch without warning:

January 1, 2000 was the day that our computers were meant to fail us and change our lives forever. It was also the day that 44 year old Norman Feller headed into his underground bunker over fears of the fallout from the Y2K virus. Remarkably Mr. Feller spent the next 14 years in isolation only to emerge this past September. In this touching documentary, Peter Oldring visits with Norman to learn more about his unbelievable decision to live underground:

JoeForAmerica can’t confirm the above report and believes it to be satire, but can confirm that life above ground, especially for those living in S.C. and N.J. tent cities that we reported on here yesterday, since Inauguration Day, Y2K09 can’t be that much better than life underground. We’re not sure what Norman did, if he did, after he fell off the map, again literally, in late 1999; but if the Obamanomics-wrought jobs depression and Obamacare policy cancellations continue, we might look into survival techniques away from the increasingly maddening crowd of the unemployed and uninsured.

    Really???? You have so little knowledge of the “year 2000” base line program problem that you refer to it as a VIRUS. A virus is created to cause a problem by someone wishing to do harm to a system. Y2K was a baseline problem from early programing days. To save memory space dates were recorded in shortened ## / ## / ## format with the 19 added automatically to the year. The problem was that all computers would record the day as 01/01/1900 rather than 01/01/2000. Every date sub-routine in every program worldwide had to be rewritten to account for the year 2000. To state that there were “No Problems” is ludicrous! The planning and precautions taken may have made it seem that way, to the uninformed… but the reality is there were hundreds of thousands of problems in systems worldwide. Did you know that the entire US electrical grid was decoupled for 10 hours to avoid chain failures, There were ZERO US military aircraft in the air during the 11:00pm – 1:00am hours of each time zone. The precautions that were taken were astronomical and the best you have is “a virus”, like it was some kid in his mom’s basement trying the end the world. WOW!

    I bet he came up for air long enough to vote for Obama.

    Since civilization must be able to adapt to future events, it is impossible to replace it with a “design” based upon knowledge known today.
