Y2K can’t stop the party.
Alleged judgment day: 1/1/00
We all know this one. For about two years straight, no one could escape talk of Y2K. Some were fanatic about it, collecting canned goods and hoarding nuts and shit, while others didn’t believe it. But most had that feeling of “Nah, that shit isn’t true. But still....”
The Y2K threat started in the mid '80s, when The Wall Street Journal reported about a possible issue due to a calculation error, which would lead to all of our computers crashing, planes falling from the sky, and a whole bunch of other outlandish shit. But when the day came, it was strictly business as usual. Still, that doesn't mean we don't fear super-smart Jeopardy computers going all Matrix on us some day.
