Y2K – What if Story

I was resting on the couch, thinking about random things, and I started wondering…

What if someone sold all they had in 1999, so they could use that money to buy a fortified underground bunker, stocked with everything they would need for the next 20 years?

What if that person locked themselves in the bunker, during the last week of 1999?

What if that person was unable to get TV or radio signals, due to the extra layers of protection designed to shield them from the effects of nuclear war?

What if that person was afraid of what may have become of the world and since they were totally convinced Y2K would cause the collapse of civilization they stayed in the bunker?

What if after all these years that person found themselves running low on supplies and decided to leave the bucker in December of 2016?

They would probably become an overnight media sensation.  They would be asked to do all sorts of interviews.  They could write  a book about their experiences and that book could be turned into a movie.  They would be the brunt of numerous jokes.  However, they would be making millions of dollars and they could just ignore the negative comments.

That’s how I think the story would go…
