Remembrances of End Times Past

Those of us who can still remember the harrowing run-up to the Y2K-palypse know that, by the standard of the time, $24.95 and $3 more for "shipping and handling" was a pittance in the context of the body of expenses associated with constructing an off-grid fortification against the looming social collapse. Just listen to this pitch and try to fight the urge to call the number just in case they still have a few copies left over:

Many of us endured the changeover from 1999 to 2000 thanks to the information promoted here, or information substantially similar to it, or information in keeping with its general spirit, or quite possibly information that wasn't the product of alarmist hucksterism packaged in a crude form of religious faith that no atheistic parodist could get away with inventing.
