I am the man who has deprived you of victims and thus has destroyed your world, and if you wish to know why you are peris

I was at a rave in Phoenix, my friends were high but this was during a sober partying phase for me. Everyone you talked to thought that Y2K was going to be a giant nothingburger, but the tension the last few seconds leading up to midnight was palpable.

Of course the ball dropped and people continued to party, appreciating the fact that the robots did not overthrow civilization. Also glowsticks.

Edit: lmao it was this rave. I'm blown away there's footage of it. I remember being very excited to see Dieselboy.

I was incredibly sick, like running an incredibly high fever, but it was 2000 so I went out to a house party anyway. I drank a twelve pack and passed out in the back of someone's mustang

Jan 2nd 2000 I started working for a dot-com

Gonna have to sit down and watch it, but I would be very recognizable. I used to wear gigantic leg pants made from happy face fabric my friend threw together. And a Pikachu backpack. I was 20, okay!

I do not wear this mask to protect me. I wear it to protect you from me.

I watched Entrapment, trying to match the Y2K time change in the movie to real life. I failed and then went up on the roof of my apartment and chatted with a friend.

I played dk64 multiplayer in the overmeyer’s basement while the adults were upstairs. Their teenage son flipped the breaker at midnight to freak everyone out. We did sparklers and I dropped one and tried to pick it back up from the snow but got the wrong and burned my fingers.

I was at a house party where I knew like 2 people. I got drunk before midnight and gave a lapdance to a lesbian. I made it to midnight and passed out on a floor in a bedroom not long after that. In the morning I woke up and went upstairs where I puked in a bathroom. After that we went to Denny's for breakfast.

I was around 10, and I'm not sure if the world is more terrible now because it actually is, or if it's just because my brain developed, and the internet lets us know every horrible thing that is happening constantly.

went to a house party, got very drunk and at midnight we stripped down and ran around the block in -30 weather, jumped in giant piles of snow, went back inside and drank more until passing out.
