Whole Sort Of Genl Mish Mash
I must agree with you on several of your points. This Y2K thing has become almost as annoying as HBO playing Titanic (in all its 180 minute spendor) over and over again in prime time slots.
My brain is cramping so I cannot remember the name of the calendar we follow, but I do know that it was based on the supposed year of the birth of Christ. Since that time, experts have further narrowed the approximate time of Christ's birth to B.C. 6 to B.C. 4. If, then, the Almighty was going to end the world, conveniently, 2000 years after the birth of Christ, then the world would have ended between 1994 and 1996 A.D.!
"But don't confuse me with the facts, I've already made up my mind!" I can't wait until next year, when the doomsdayers are frustrated that creation hasn't been obliviated by a Vengeful God or a nagging computer glitch, and someone remembers that the new Millennium doesn't begin until 2001!!!
Thanks for the chance to rant, Robin. I needed it. But there is one positive item to come out of this Millennium craze ... a new Swartzenegger film! (At least I think so ... I will let you know after I see it on Wednesday ... but its Arnold, so I know it has to be good )
