Supposedly at Midnight on January 1, 2000, all electronic devices would cease to work. Lots & Lots of people stocked up on food & household items. Y2K didn't happen tho!
I prepared for Y2K & had enuf food for a family of 4 for a year or enuf for 1 person for 4 years. I had all the food groups & lots of water too. I went up into the wilderness & came back to find out Y2K didn't even happen! Supposedly ATM machines & grocery stores' cash registers wouldn't work. The 1st thing I bought was a gallon of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup!

biggest scam since the pyramid scheme

responsible for the biggest sales in history for generators, bottled water,
and useless computer books and software(which probably wouldn't have worked anyway)
Y2K was like the pyramid scheme in that millions of people spent a shitload of money for nothing, and a few people got very rich from it.

It was when the Spam company and the people that sold generators got a big pile of revenue.

Just imagine how freaked out about Y2K everyone was, I was born in Y2K3....pretty creepy....
Well, I made it right past 11-11-11, I don't see much coming on December, 12, 2012....Face it, if it weren't for Y2K, we'd be screwed. That's when Malcolm in the Middle came out. Maybe we should be better or something and call it 2000....
