Yeah, I would suggest that you wait at least 5 or 10 years after the
mellenium before getting hot on PR. Let enough time to pass to show
everyone that the religious mellenial fever was utter bunk. Then again,
since Christ was supposedly strung up around age 35, technically the
real mellenium should happen around 2035..... uh gee Eliezer, we need to
do some recalculating.....
