    I've seen many cartoons and articles in newspapers and TV telling how Y2K1 was a year to remember or forget. What do you think?

    Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it...

    No I don't think so, forget about the past, live towards the future. People who tend to live in the past, are making a big mistake and it will leave permanent scars.

    That said, 2001 was a crappy year :eek:

    OK why??? That sounds so incredibly stupid?

    If you mean saying "If you forget the mistakes you've made in the past, that's a bad thing", I couldn't agree more...

    Just because you don't live in the past doesn't mean you have to pretend it didn't exist, that's not what I was saying. Just because you don't actively try to forget it doesn't mean you sit and thinka bout it all the time.

    Forget. This was one of the most painful years of my war that I can remember.
    'Course, I can never really ever forget anything, so I just wanna get past it and
    be ready to take on 2002. This year, I'm going on the offensive.

    I wonder if any of you realize that 2002 could very well start off with a big disaster. Times Square, NYC, NY...500,000 or so people in a confined area...if I were a terrorist I'd be pissing my pants. What could possibly be a more wonderful way to kill people then to hit where people are the most vulnerable and the most packed in? Oh, I know: how about doing it during a yearly tradition? What's more, doing that could possibly end the tradition for many years to come...

    The excact quote is more like "Those who don't learn from the past, are destined to repeat it".

    Still it's almost the same. Forgetting it will use noone. The first half of 2001 rocked

    Very true, but the truth is, I STILL wish I could ****ing be there! I mean think about it, all those people, gatherin in the city where the attack happened partying. Talk about a slap in the face of the terrorists. Besides, it'd be fun as hell.

    BTW: I'm sure you've heard about the thing with india and pakistan possibly leading up to a war between the two (india attacked pakistan's parliment or something like that). And Pakistan might have to move the troops they have watching the afghan border away. If I were Bush I'd be telling inda to back the f*ck off. Nuclear power or not, if they do anything to hurt the effort they should go on the black list.

    *edit*

    any of you NY BuFfers going?

    It would be an even bigger slap in the face if they hit us then. :p

    The Indian parliament was the one that was hit.

    hmm... guess just catching headlines as I flip through the channels causes mistakes like that :D I completely missed what India did to piss them off then.

    i don't think anyone can forget Y2K1, even if they'd try really hard.

    too much death and disaster.:(

    even if it was painful... its a year to remember... do you really want to forget the lives taken at that attack?......

    Also, in case you didn't know, if you try hard to forget something you're more then likely going to reaffirm the memory... :p
