12/17   Does anyone know any good Beatles imitation band holding
        concerts in the bay area in the near future?  - choice
        \_ and there's yer self-cancelling phrase for the day
           \_ which part of the phrase is self-cancelling? - choice
         \_ i believe the implication was that "good" and
            "Beatles imitation" do not belong in the same sentence
         \_ Actually, the contradiction is "Bay Area" and
            "Near future". CALIFORNIA IS GOING TO TURN OVER
            STRIFE! DOOM! DOOM! DEATH! TRAGEDY! DOOM! - thepro

12/17   For those of you who are interested, you can open a hidden maze
        game(?) called "Hall of Tortured Souls" from the B95 cell in
        Excel 95.
        for more.
        \_ more details please.  (what do we do in that cell?)
             But you have to figure out the magic word to make the white
             wall disappear!  ;)  --yumin

12/17   Jimmy Carter - ex-president, ambassador, statesman, all around nice guy
        will be appearing in Cody's Bookstore tommorrow (12/18) at 7:30pm.
        I think it will be for some kind of book signing, but I didn't catch
        all of it on Classical KDFC 100.7 FM.  Don't miss this
         \_ isn't KDFC around 102FM?  "Your radio concert hall"
        once-in-a-lifetime chance to see THE MAN!
        \_ What a crappy president that guy was.  Im sure he's a better
           \_ He was a helluva lot better than Reagan, who took office
              through fraud and conspiracy.  Goodbye solar..
              \_ Reagan may have been bad, but Carter was simply horrible.
          For different reasons, of course. I do admire how a complete
          loser (Carter) was able to parlay his utter incompetance into
          some sort of noble elder statseman later in life. Neat-o!!
          \_ Hey, Reagan was the best President we've had since Ike,
             you weenie knee-jerk. Go get pierced or something.
             Friggin' long-hairs.  -John
             \_ So what if he was better than Reagan or not?  On
         his own, Carter was an all-around bad President.  As
         far as Reagan goes, at least he *seemed* like a good
         President at the time and given a choice in 1980
         between the two, thank God, the country chose Reagan.
         As far as elder statemen and all that crap goes,
         Nixon managed to do the same thing.  So what?
                 \_ Dick never quite pulled off elder statesman.
         \_ I don't see how Reagan got elected.  People
            say he's charismatic, but he's a real ugly butt.
            And hella retarded too, what with that swiss cheese
            brain disease.  Man, all of you who supported him
            got whammied.  You must feel real stupid now.  Even
            before Alzheimer's, you could tell he didn't quite
            have all his marbles.  When looks matter most in
            politics.  I bet you guys voted for Clinton or Dole
            too cuz you thought one was cuter than the other.
            Where are the issues man?  --pcjr
            \_ Does anyone know where this recent rash of
        convservative whacko-ism comes from where
        thinking that Reagan *looking* like a good
        president was somehow enough?  Carter started
        some truly visionary energy research programs
        which Ronnie gutted to pay from the idiot SDI
        program --- just before the energy stuff started
        to pay off and put the squeeze on the oil oddly convenient for a
        \_ Don't forget:  many of you twinks owe your
           jobs/dreams of becoming thousandares via
           stock options, to military spending (if
           only indirectly) :) :)
                       \_ everyone always says Carter was awful as a president,
                          but they can rarely back it up with evidence; Carter
            actually accomplished many positives (CIA cleanup,
            miscellaneous foreign affairs..) I believe most
            people hate him because he didn't appear imperial
            (my god: he carried his own bags!)
            \_ Those weren't his own bags.  They were props
        from his campaign people. Usually, they were
        filled with carved-up baby parts as a twisted
        little joke, but sometimes there was a dwarf
        Secret Service member hiding in each.
        \_ I know... *sob* I was one of them.. the
           \_ This thread reformatted and cleaned up by
              me, because I actually have that much time
              to waste!!! (yippee) -dbushong
