    Relive Your Y2K Freakout In 19 Steps

    New Year's Eve, 1999: You embrace for the impending demise of civilization. Or just nothing.

    1. Have you guys heard of this Y2K thing?

    2. Is that like a new group?

    3. Nooo. It stands for Year 2000. Basically, the Computer People didn't think ahead.

    4. Actually, we don't really know what's going to happen.

    5. The computers will get confused and break.

    6. What if you can never do this again?

    7. And your VCR won't be able to record "Road Rules" or anything anymore.

    8. Basically the world is headed for complete and utter chaos.

    9. You have some time to prepare, so your basement starts to look like this.

    10. Your mom has you make a list of all the appliances in the house.

    11. Including this one.

    12. And then makes you call all the manufacturers to make sure that they are Y2K compliant.

    13. Your mom also wants you wearing one of these (for no apparent reason).

    14. Better take out a bunch of cash, because the ATMs will be useless.

    15. Whatever you do, when the clock strikes 12, don't be in an elevator.

    16. Or an airplane.

    17. Because you never know.

    18. But you're still going to party on NYE, so you go out (in these glasses) and wait. What...will...happen?

    19. Nothing.
