11/3    John Glenn returns from space in six days.
        You have six days to buy a monkey suit and bury the Statue of
        Liberty up to her head.
        Does that mean Heston will say " Keep your paws off of me
        you damn dirty liberal " ?

11/3    I've heard a lot of conflicting views about intel as a workplace.
        some people told me it was a horrible place to intern/coop and some
        said it was pretty awesome.  Anyone have any experience?  I'm being
        offered a 6 month at logic verifcation (don't know what that is).
        \_ Well, I'm not sure about the details, but I imagine it means
           cranking through layout to compare against verilog-type
           information.  All I can say is that I've been at Intel for
           almost 18 months and it's great.  I'm designing and implementing

           about Intel internships/full-time.  It seems that it depends

        \_ Depends on you. Intel prides itself on being inflexible.
           Considering the high-tech field, inflexibility doesn't go over
           well with most.  But really does depend on your group. In
           general no flex time(ie 8a-12p then  1p to 5p). In my group you
           are expected to work minimum 8hrs with 9 to 10hrs being
           average(8a-7p). Pay is generally below avg. but if Intel does
           well the bonuses will more than compensate. In general, an anal
           company. For example, they search you when you leave the
           building.   summarizing, you might co-op somewhere where you'd
           want to work later.  Unless you don't mind strict policies, and
           a military like environment, Intel's probably not it. People
           only join Intel out of college... almost never from other
           companies. This speaks for itself.
           \_ I don't get it -- you don't seem to like it there, but you
             umm -- haven't quit yet?  I don't get it.  Please explain.
             \_ a lot of old-timers have stock options that make it hard
                for them to leave.
             \_ The writer probably isn't 35 yet.  Intel will make sure to
                oust him before then.

11/4    What is this world coming to? Jesse "The Body" Ventura, former
        pro wrestler and co-star of Predator, wins a 3-way race for
        governor in Minnesota.
        \_ How could you miss with this campaign slogan: "Vote for me or I'll
           kill you."
        \_ i'm so proud to be a minnesotan!  -- a proud minnesotan
        \_ Hell, I'm just glad new yorkers finally came to their senses
           gave D'Amato the boot.
        \_ What's wrong with Jesse?  As if a so-called professional politician
           is any better?  What this world is starting to come to is a United
           States where the people are tired of the two party demopublicans.
           I see Jesse as a vote against the republicrats.  I see nothing
           wrong with electing such a man to a governorship.
           \_ And no one criticized Ronald Regan (an x-movie star) for being
              predident.  Although, I don't think what he did to our national
              debt was such a great thing either.
                \_ Might point out that Reagan was once governor of this
                   wonderful state, so there's even precident for the star
                   becoming governor of a state.  And Reagan's term as gov.
                   is debatable on effectiveness.
                        \_ Reagan fired Clark Kerr, widely regarded as one
                           of the best University leaders this century.
                           \_Incorrect.  It was Edmund G. "Pat" Brown who
                             fired Clark Kerr, over the Free Speech
                             Movement.  Reagan was more notorious for calling
                             out the national guard on Berkeley and gassing
                             Sproul Plaza, after Berkeley profs told him not
                             to do it.  Interesting note, Reagan was partially
                             elected because he promised to "clean up that
                             mess in Berkeley."
                   \_ The highway patrol make good secret police
        \_                 BLAIN
                          ...bunch of slack-jawed
                            faggots around here...
                             (holds up plug)
                       ...this stuff will put hair
                         guaranteed...
                          (chewing)
                    ...make you a God-damned
                      sexual ty-ran-toe-sore-ass...
                        just like me.

                \_ Someone actually asked Friedman whether people had to b
                   smart for anarchocapitalism to work.  He suggested tha
