A Survival Guide for the Year 2000 Problem
2000: Consumer Solutions for the Worst Techincal Blunder in History: A Survival Guide for the Year 2000 Problem by Jim Lord
Above is the fully above all this smile on his face. Above me in this article is the full title of the book by Jim Lord that had caused so many people so many problens , financal loss, and bad memories.
I am writing an short but to the point article about this book for three reasons, all of which are pretty much personal both in opinion and my need to express them. The First One is - that this may have been one of the worst examples of a scam artist hoax that has ever been written, this I address directly to Jim Lord should he wish to correspond. The Second One is, that I am glad to see his book is no longer even able to sell for more than 0.01 on Amazon.com. Real justice would be if this book never made anyone - the author, the publisher, or their descendants another red cent. The Third One is that this book may have single handledly already influenced so many people with Millenial Minded madness that future events may cause these same people who survived Y2K in tact and fine - to once again go off the deep end in panic, conspiracy, and paranoia over the upcoming end of the Mayan Long Count calendar on the winter solstice at midnight on the date 12 . 21 . 2012.
Jim Lord's Book on the Y2K disaster that was impending, or the 'Millenial Bomb' as he calls it over and over again in the book. And don't take my word for it, there were thousands and thousands of intelligent people, business men and women, scientists, ...all of them much smarter than I am at 41 years old - everyone of them sucked into this profiteering propoganda that Lord and others like him spread. Their only goals being obvious, quick influence on an expansive computer market, bad investments and debts from their own failure to produce successful computer market products, and to make some big quick, cold hard cash before the last toll of the 1999 years' bell ringing.
The other point I wish to make is about not John Lord or his book, but about the similarities between te Y2K hysteria, and the just as blindsided view that many persons I know are beginning to shape about the 2012 Planetary Alignment that is less than two years away. I know some of you are just being exposed to this event and information concerning it, and some of you may react in an unsure or state of worry, But it is equally possible the Mayan Calendar ending might just be the stone age astronomers equivalent of Y2K...the calendar ends, because they found out nothing more than their calcualtions were off - and maybe they just suddenely found themselves at a crossroad. And the calendar way just a tool of their observations.
I guess I can sum it up in the immortal words of Roger Daltrey and the Who ." I Won't Get Fooled Again..." And as a side not to anyone who may disagree with my posture on this issue, I would n't want me puttin anyone down on on a high horse. Just somethings need to be said publically, when the evidence is a 1 percent. Or less But here today I think it is goning to make now or the Buckland to come to movies with me - HAHA Tony laughs, and he really loves you.
