A Canadian Man Just Came Out Of The Y2K Bunker He’s Been In For The Past 14 Years (Or Maybe Not)

(UPDATE: According to a few of our commenters, the interview this post was inspired by was aired on a satirical Canadian program. Well done, Canadian funny people responsible for this. They say that good satire is often indistinguishable from reality — still, our apologies for not being familiar with the show. We so wanted to believe.)

Nearly fourteen years ago, the world was supposed to end. Because computer programmers had foolishly forgotten to include four digits for the year on computer clocks, the Y2K bug was going to destroy everything. People built bunkers, stockpiled food, and generally prepared for society to end. Norman Feller was among them… and fourteen years later, he’s finally come out of his bunker.

Feller claims to have spent more than a decade underground. He was part of a group he refers to as the “fifteen year preppers,” people who believed it would take a decade and a half for the chaos caused by a reset glitch to be fixed and the world to return to normal.

Feller came out early because, well, he was bored. As he himself puts it in a CBC interview:

“You have to understand that fifteen years is a long time when you’re by yourself in a windowless bunker. Also, I became curious as to whether or not I was right, and I chose to come up.”

Among his other surprises, he can’t believe Friends is over, but that The Simpsons is still on the air, and he’s more than a little shocked you can’t smoke indoors. He also asks, at one point, what happened to all the music stores.

Satire. How do you people struggle to spot these things? Seriously, not a rhetorical, how did you possibly think this was true?

The exciting life of a doomsday prepper. He ought to write a book, it would make riveting reading.
