The Year 1999

  • Two students go on a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Colorado. They kill 13 people and then themselves.
  • While the world parties like it's 1999 (if you read that and thought, "Huh?" ask your 'rents about a dude named Prince), computer geeks freak out about the "Y2K Bug." It turns out that the world didn't end. Go figure.
