    Whatever. A mouse clicked by itself? This requires invisible people/things. I donno about any kind of anything that can exert physical force and is totally invisible. Besides... if he sucked so hard, why didn't they just kill him instead of clicking his damn mouse? This is retarded.

    Morbid curiosity only will even possibly make me see what's posted on March03 - if this is as big as he claims, why would he have to advertise it now? Makes no sense, he's just trying to make some notoriety and money here, its too silly. Quite lame actually.

    I particularly liked the black van part, ha! Maybe he's been upset since the X-Files is over and wanted to have his own episode.....

    D:rolleyes:

    Maybe the film contains windows source code... Maybe he found out that on March 8, 2003, all windows computers will self-destruct... The people after him are microsoft goons, and when he searched for certain words online, his computer recognized them, and tried to phone home to say that their secret is out!!!

    http://www.domainsbyproxy.com/ doesn't have a thing, but its interesting on how this guy looked at all the options to keep himself covered.

    Going and looking at non existent pages on godaddy and they don't display the same page not found info. And just to back it up I went and looked at another godaddy site and I got this:

    '

    So, what does it all mean?

    I have no idea....;)

    sheesh... some deranged packaging about the appearance of a 10th planet... I mean really ... It reminds me of those tv documentaries featuring lower primates that rise up on their hind legs and look around nervously in every direction when one monkey makes an alert sound.

    I'm sure that if a 10th planet was streaking into our Solar System, our Astronomers (who are highly educated people with very large hardware and tons of Apple Software) would know about it.

    Sounds more like one of these "The Sky is Falling" Chicken Little types than someone we can trust. I have to believe that if it was someone we could trust, an article would pop up in an Academic Review Journal rather than on a website where lower primates can oo oo ah to all their friends.

    Ah, so it was some Planet X BS.

    Just so you all know the doomsayers hawking survival supplies have moved on from Y2K to saying a 10th Planet will alter Earth's gravity in 2003 :rolleyes:

    8March2003 Debunked

    Dear readers,

    This site was originally posted as a piece of writing with purposeful clues and discrepancies to indicate it's fictitious nature leading up to a pre publicity campaign to see how much interest it might generate. Quite honestly the overwhelming response and attention was not expected, or at least not so quickly. That was why the site was posted several months ahead with the intention of it slowly gathering momentum, leading up to the actual revealing date.

    Most people have sent emails indicating that they enjoyed the site and looked forward to finding out about the potential release of a variety of things such as a new movie, computer game, SLR camera, novel, camera film and the list goes on.

    There are some that have taken this site too seriously, and it has been brought to my attention that innocent people have been implicated as the creators of this site. I therefore feel it is appropriate to make this announcement. As many have pointed out, if the story was for real it would have been shut down by now.

    If you still wish to follow this event, please enjoy it as a fictitious story leading up to what will be revealed on the above mentioned date. If there is enough interest, the original story may be re-posted as an optional link on this page within the next few weeks.

    Kind Regards,
    HM
