04/26   Soda will be down for dumps from 12:00 noon Sunday, May 3rd, 1998.
        We are estimating that it should be back up again by
        Mon May  4 00:00:00 PDT 1998, barring complications. (Yes,
        that's 12 hours. This isn't old soda anymore.) --brg

4/28    To mock People's Magazine, I am now doing a contest on the top
        10 most beautiful people on soda.
        \_ three words: pee ess bee - tpc
                \_ Merriam-Webster's Collegiate® Dictionary contains 2 items
                   relevant for "ess".
        \_ JSL the Angry, Drunken Dwarf
        \_ This is like judging the most intelligent contestants in the
           Miss America pageant. ie. pointless.
        \_ This is Soda-- shouldn't we have the top-ten most beautiful one-line
           perl scripts or something?
                \_ $twink++ if $ENV{"USER"} eq "cmlee"; return $twink;
        \_ aspo
                \_ Don't put aspo on this list.  How will I ever get him back?
                        -dumped gay lover
                   \_ you that bonedaddy-assplaster-gyrosphincter boy?
        \_ psb
        \_ christine
        \_ tom...
           \_ why the ellipsis?
        \_ jsl
        \_ tawei
        \_ yer mom
        \_ This list almost made me think we were electing for the
           10 most unattractive people.

4/28    So, what is a good way to solicit a prostitute in a relatively safe
        manner? Where are the fine whores at? How much does it cost? I don't
        want to get arrested.
        \_ "fine whores" ??
        \_ You have a lot to learn. -#9 psb fan.
           \_ And you can learn it at
        \_ RTFM, luser.
        \_ Goto Nevada - avoid prosecution and enjoy regulated, disease-free
           \_ Disease-free?  Cool!  How much does it cost?
        \_ Look for Escort or Massage Service on the Yellow Page.
        \_ Just go to that brothel across the street from Andronico's!
                   Word has it they do BDSM, too.
                                \_ Black Dragon Scale Mail? - too much nethack
                \_Which Andronico's?  Telegraph? Shattuck? University?
                        \_ University.
                           \_ Either you have your facts wrong, or by
                              coincidence there is also one across from
                              Telegraph andronicos.  I have been there.
                              I was piss drunk and the ho's still looked
                              fugly.  I ran out in a hurry.  --sky
        \_ Use your hand.  Its free and safe and legal.
           \_ Or do what George Michael was doing to himself and get arrested.
                \_ I don't want to know what GM was doing to himself.  Thanks.
        \_ It doesn't surprise me a bit that sodans have to go to prostitutes
           or soda sluts to get satisfaction.

4/28    So, how was Merlin? What are your ratings?
        \_ On par with Edward Penis-Hands II.
        \_ Really liked part 1.  The costumes were beautiful.  Missed part
           2, though.
        \_ Seemed to me that they spent more on their CGI than plot-
           continuity.  This was definitely made-for-TV (tm).
                \-i think they should have killed the lame special effects
                and stuck with the good ones. they under-used the cast i
                thought. and some of the cast was pretty weak. 56million
                viewers for part1! this was more manageable on TV than the
                odyssey, which is so tied up with a text. --psb
                \_ with a big-wig cast like they had, they did a pretty
                   bad job with them...
        \_ You want to see a good arthurian flick, go watch Excalibur, it
           kicked ASS over Merlin. -ERic
        \_ I caught the parts that didn't conflict with X-files.  I actually
           enjoyed it, but I think they crammed it too much into two eps, it
           might have been beter if they made it a 5-ep miniseries or
           something.  Incidentally, I'm not too familiar with the actual
           legend of Camelot (except what I got from that Sierra game a few
           years back :) ) Were the facts straight in Merlin?  -barn
           \_ It's mythology.  What facts?
              \_ I thought the legend might be based on "some" facts. -barn
              \_ True, esp. since the very existence of Arthur in the
                 sense of his legend is questionable.  In anycase, they
                 got many characters right, but much of it was done up
                 Hollywood-style for the masses.  This was supposed to
                 be _Merlin_'s story anyhow -- don't know much 'bout him.
                \_ I believe (no URL sorry) :-) that some sort of Arthur
                   existed and was the basis of some early stories and maybe
                   there was some early wiseman Merlin person, but none of
                   this dragons and sword in the stone stuff.
                   \_ they used to say that about the round table until
                      they found it. of course, I doubt they'll find dragon
                      skeletons these days. Internal acids and all that.
                      \_ sorry, but the round table they found isn't
                         old enough to have been Arthur's, if Arthur
                         existed at all.  -goetz
                      \_ twinks, the table was destroyed, did you see the
                         movie? the maab witch blew it
