I've got a quick fix - the silver wire (bullet) so to speak. I've been saving all the wire twist ties from bread bags "just in case". I knew there was a reason, but wasn't quite sure what.
On Dec. 31 take one of these wires, thread it through the tab. Then take it up and twist it around the button! It will work, I've done it before!! Just don't drink a lot of water till we're sure if things are going to go bad. There aren't enugh National Guardsmem to do a house to house search of everyone's zipper tabs. Keep extra on hand for those unprepared who are freezing their "parts" off because of malfunctioning tabs!!
Also stock up on body suits, leotards and one piece long johns for extra measure. Just to make sure your treasures are still hidden should this contingency plan fail. Trust me on this one, I used it many times to ward off my husband when we were dating!!!
Stock up on the wires now ladies, who knows how long we will still be able to get bread with these on. They may all go to thoses stupid plastic things!!!

I'll try, but what happens if the zipper goes down & takes the silver thread with it? Will the whole country have to walk around bent over??? I can remember once when I decided to show off & did 150 sit-ups. I couldn't stand up straight for a week! My kids just thought I was mocking them they were still very short then. Now they're all 6ft. (almost) or waay over! I guess they showed me! Anyway, keep in mind, there will be some who only wear elastic, and personally I don't want to spend my days looking at belly buttons...

I live in my mumus!! My mother makes them and they are sooo comfortable. One little joke I tell is that the reason they call it a mumu is because it makes me look big as a cowcow-lol. Actually I am big but who would know with a mumu on-love em

Oh oh, I better stock up on suspenders and extra long shirts. Or maybe I just need to walk around holding a book infront of my pants. That's what the 7th grade boys used to do when the pretty teacher called them to the blackboard.
The next millenium will give a whole new meaning to "fly fishing".

Thanks for brightening my evening. I love coming here!

keep in mind, if they are looking at your belly button maybe they won't notice your zipper. You should be ok in your house though, remember the black plastic on your windows!
Practice standing up real straight now, and by December you might not have to worry about the tab slipping down with the wire. You should still be ok even if it does slip a little. All it will take is a "quick fix" little tug to get it back up. Try it now and you will learn how to do it without any one noticing! Or try this diversionary trick. Put a wad of Silly Putty on your cheek. Then stream some strawberry jelly from it. People may be so shocked by this gross festering wart that they don't see your zipper slip! Boy you can tell I'm getting really tired! Good thing I'm all alone.

And you all thought Amy was joking?? Let me tell you, this is a serious problem. A few years ago I bought the twin Princesses each an Adidas jacket. They have since quit wearing them, so I and Princess # 1 have started wearing them. Recently BOTH ZIPPERS have quit working. They will not zip up correctly and if you do get them zipped, they pull apart. Just this morning while fighting the stupid thing, I took a look at the brand of zipper.....you got it!! YKK!!!! Two YKK zippers going bad at the exact same time........
Sheesh, now I guess I have to replace two zippers...

unless you can find zippers prior to the 1960's Rox. I am sure they would be ykk compliant but with this government we may not know. As for myself I refuse to be exposed to this ykk problem. 501s have buttons but sometimes when you gotta go you gotta go - lol. Wow the trials and tribulations of ykk maybe more than I can bare-no pun intended - lol.

I let DW read this thread... I'm afraid to let her read the one about virgins... and definitely not the one about keepers (I'm even afraid to read that one)...although I was told it was hilarious... but I don't need to know everything.... well gotta get out the sewing machine... got to the store and buy some buttons, then check all my zippers for compliance..I downloaded a program that checks em... try www.singer.com

Guys and Gals: What a hysterical read! Just today I read in Ann Landers' column of a number of imaginary new drugs being released. One of them is called Flyagra. Ann describes it: "This drug has shown significant promise in treating men with OFD (Open Fly Disorder.) It has proven especially effective for men already on Viagra."
Perhaps that is what afflicts our president (the one whose name I refuse to say because he's such a lying pervert.) I'm afraid my cure for him has nothing to do with taking a pill. It has more to do with_this_joke that I heard... "Did you hear that Hillary hired a new intern for the president? Her name is Lorena Bobbitt." (An aside to those men in the audience...If you haven't cheated on your wife, you have no reason to grab your crotch after hearing this joke!)
Thanks for the laugh of the day! LINDA

You can't. I happen to have hundreds and hundreds of pages I printed out before Y2K, and I typed out all of that thread from my 'giggles' section, in one of my notebooks.
The farthest back you can search is 2002. Unless someone else printed and saved other info, much of what was in the forums from 1999 to 2002 is forever lost.
I have about 3 large and 2 or 3 small notebooks of survival info from all over the internet that I printed out in 1999.
It took me hours to re-type the original thread.
