Everyone is getting fed up with the constant CHANTING about
Y2K. Even Ed Yourdon, bigshot mainframe guy, and author of
Timebomb 2000, who did A LOT to spread awareness
(more like panic) about Y2K is backing off the subject,
saying, hey, there's nothing more I can do. (I assume he's
retreated into his multi-million dollar, plushed out bomb
shelter purchased with the proceeds of his book.) So it's
time for something ELSE to go CRAZY about. So how about
"Y6B" (the year of 6 billion)?
Yes, it's true, some time soon, a baby will be born, and the world's population
count will reach six BILLION people.
What are YOU doing about Y6B? are YOU ready for Y6B? What will happen when
it's Y6B? Do you have your Y6B food supply prepared? What will you do when the
hordes of starving, unprepared masses (er, babies) come after it? Will you
REALLY be able to pull the trigger?! Actually, why the hell are you copulating
all the time. Knock it off.
These are the questions...
Don't you see? There will be WAR for fresh water! People will eat all of the
world's animals into extinction!!! BOOGA!!
This is really not a new bugaboo to worry about; overpopulation is bigtime old
hat -- but why not give it a cool acronym: Y6B! Y6B! Y6B! That's exactly what
the Scripps Howard New Service has decided to do. Check out this article in
"The Conway, Arkansas Log Cabin Democrat."
