Judgement Day : Skynet has failed us!

This morning at work, a co-worker informed me of the fact that last night was in fact Judgement Day.  The day that Skynet became self-aware.  My intital thought was 'bullshit, we've already passed that day'.  I distinctly remember the easter egg from the Terminator 2 Special Edition DVD in which you get to watch an even LONGER version of the movie.. longer than the already included LONG directors cut version on the DVD.  The code is "82997".  This is the date of Judgement Day, August 29, 1997. (08-29-97).  Knowing this, I need to look it up.

And here is where movie lore gets messed up.

According to T2: Judgement Day, the first mention of the date for Judgement Day is August 29, 1997.  2:14 am eastern time, to be exact.  In Terminator 3, on the DVD, there is a timline which states the date is in 2003.  In the TV show, it is said that the date is April 29th, 2011.

So, we have already passed several Judgment Days.  I can't wait for Google.. err.. Skynet to become self-aware and start the war.

  7. I was taking it seriously until I got confused, which was when you started to speak about the terminator. This gave me a laugh, but if goo- skynet ever become aware, I'll treat it as a zombie invasion.

    That's the only things I'm prepared for.

  8. Man, it was so windy that day here I thought it really was judgement day and there were just nukes going off far enough away that all we got was wind. Didn't happen like that.
