    Some time ago, I Googled 12/31/1969 and it is a big mystery. Nobody seems to know why or the significance of the date. Lots of guesses.

    December 31st, 1969, was the last day of the sixties.

    The very next day, January 1st, 1970, "disco" came to the mind of some malcontent with no redeeming qualities, and brought it to disgusting fruition not long thereafter.

    You, getting those emails, are doomed to meet Sly and the Family Stone, Prince and The Bee Gees as you enter Hell at death.

    You have been warned.

    :D :D :D

    Well, I met Sly Stone's trumpeter, Cynthia Robinson on several occasions, way back in my B-Flat Coronet days. I am still a huge Sly and the Family Stone fan. Lots of talent in that group.

    The song, Spirits Having Flown is one of my favorite Bee Gees songs, and Prince (Not a fan) is an amazing musician and quite smart.

    So please, by all means, introduce me. We will party like it is December 30, 1969.

    Now, now, now, now, . . . not everything the Bee Gees did was disco. If that is what you are trying to say. To be fair, they were largely responsible for spreading it about.

    I must admit, Bob does not, nor has he ever discoed ( or disco-ed perhaps) down. I can find some limited value in Disco, but the search is long and arduous to be sure.

    I prefer to Rock on, or head bang. Even the occasional getting my freak on is ok. Sadly, disco is not exactly dead. It exists waiting to reappear.

    We used to go to a club in Long Beach that played disco music and had the flashing-light dance floor and the rotating ball, etc.

    It kept me from having to go on my treadmill for quite a while, but I finally stopped going to the place when I noticed it gradually became populated with nothing but white people who danced even worse than me.

    History. ;) :D

    Perhaps you are not receiving them for a reason, right? Either you are not on the list or you are on a different list. Until we know why, not receiving such messages might spell doom for you.

    Be afraid . . . be very afraid.

    Ive gotten emaiils with this date from abcnews "breaking news" updates. Hmm, this must be a global 'android' issue since its various devices and email accounts not related to one another? (I thought I was the only one and wrote it off)

    someone probably just made a mistake or is playing around.

    Well, they are bringing back the Delorian, and it is confirmed that they can go 88 MPH, but no confirmation on what happens after that.

    I read about this date code thing. It's a roll over code due to the use of binary. It's something like 10 1's is some date this year and then it rolls over to all 0's and it's back in the 60s. I forgot where I read the article or what it was even called, but the computer smartypants people are trying to add 4 more positions so we're good on date code headers until 2.5 million years from now.

    So, after we annihilate each other with nuclear weapons, die off, then the long cycle of planet healing and re-evolution from bacteria, the next technological race will have to figure out how to add 4 more 0's to make it so it's no longer their problem, either.

    Where did you read that lie at? Everyone knows it aliens trying to communicate through email.

    I just received two of them this morning, dated Dec 31, 1969 at 6:00pm. complelty blank... I posted on my FB wall about it and it wouldn't show up on the Wall for friends to see but it would show up on my personal wall.... crazy. I deleted one, tried bringing it back to my inbox to save it to show my BF but it wouldn't come back, and then i deleted the other one from inbox and trash because my boyfriend thought it would be someone trying to hack into my system. I never checked my Desktop email to see if it was there or not, but it was in my yahoo account on my Droid X2

    Welcome to the forums!

    Mail like this is the usual result of a spammer or someone beyond completely lost in setting up their computer and email on their end.

    The unix epoch time began on Jan 1, 1970, so the sender screwing up to that level takes real talent. :)
