Gov’t issues Y2K2 bug warning

Sunday, December 30th, 2001 - 7:53 pm PST

The US government today issued a warning about the possibility of major power outages, natural disasters, and other calamities which may result from what is being called the Y2K2 bug. Those same computer programmers who saved us from the Y2K bug just two years ago were not forward-thinking enough to program computers to recognize any year past 2001. Come Tuesday morning, your computer may erroneously believe that it is January 1, 1982. The government strongly recommends you unplug any electrical devices for at least a week, lest they turn on you, become sentient, and plot to destroy the human race.
