“Yeah, I really do think.” I don’t think it’s ironic but I do think a lot. And so I thought about irony. On Friday, I dropped a blog post that, along with the rest of the city, predicted Carmageddon, an event that was to back up traffic all over Los Angeles.
It didn’t happen. Was it a hoax? No, it wasn’t Y2K. The Year 2000 bug truly seemed to be a hoax because it doesn’t stand to reason that ALL companies fixed ALL systems just in time to avert disaster. It was illogical. I remember airlines even stating they were only 95% ready. And I never knew if that meant that 95% of flights were going to make it to their destinations or that all flights were going to make it 95% of the way. Neither seemed comforting.
