12/24   Happy [ Chanukah | Christmas | Kwanzaa | Solstice | Linuxmas ]
        \_ it will be good to see the real millennium finally.
                \_ get a life
                   \_ this was a great tv show while it lasted!

12/24   It's amazing.  More Republican vote theft.  No wonder they didn't want
        every vote counted.  Look at all these people who Jeb screwed over:
        A deep investigation of Florida and some folks are going to vote from
        prison next time.
        \_ Convicted felons can't vote, moron.
           \_ They can so long as they're republicans in Florida.
           \_ You didn't get the joke did you?

12/23   Linuxmas gifts for your favourite sysadmin:
        for your linux (or linux hating) sysadmin:
        \_ sorry for the formatting, and the long urls, but you really don't
           want to go thru their javascript/grphics only site.
           \_ The "I See Dumb People" one is great.

12/23   Southwest Airlines screwed me over by drastically overbooking a
        flight so I'm tring to screw them back a little. Don't fly
        Southwest. If you do get denied boarding because a flight is
        overbooked know this. Denied boarding is actually illegal. Most
                                \_ Grammar that bad should be illegal,
                                   but being denied boarding isn't illegal.
        passengers don't know this so they readilly accept whatever
        compensation they give you. Once you accept it you've signed
        away all your legal rights against the airline. Milk them for
        all they're worth. They knowingly do something illegal. You
        shouldn't let them get away with it.
        -fucked passenger.
        \_ Get a life.  All airlines do this.  Switch airlines, and your
           next carrier will pull the same over you.

           without. -ED user
           without this. -ED user
                \_ The Christmas Carol is the standard, but it's been done
                   to death.  (It's a Wonderful Life is up there too, and
                   has also been redone so many times it's mind-numbing.)
           \_ Charlie Brown Xmas Special.  W/ score by Vince Geraldi.
              the bending of the tree by hanging 1 ornament.  Classic.
              - paolo
        \_ Faces of Death II.  That always gets me in the right mood. -John

12/25   In 1555, Nostradamus wrote:
        "Come the millennium, month 12,
        In the home of greatest power,
        The village idiot will come forth
        To be acclaimed the leader."
        \_  I assume you're not so stupid as to be refering to the man
            who will take office on the first month of the new millenium?
        \_ He may not be the sharpest spoon in the drawer but at
           least he's...oh fuck we're screwed.
        \_ ever considered that this might be a hoax?
           \_ it's stupid. this is not the sort of shit nostradamus
              would write. besides, there are no dates in Centuries. -ali
              \_ You actually read the shit nostradamus wrote?
           \_ If this was real, at least it would probably be written as
              "... month twelfth, ...".
        \_ Bush won.  Get over it.  Move on with your life.
                \_ The Republicans lied, cheated, incited to riot, and
                   undermined the foundations of democracy.  Now we're
                   supposed to "get over it"?  Fuck that.

12/25   The Dolphins/New England game end was strange.  Dolphins celebrating
        the end of the game and the Coach congratulating the team in
        the locker room, but wait.  The officials said that there were
        3 seconds left on the clock.  So they had to play one play after
        35 minutes and after all the players may have finished changing.
        With all the recounts in Florida, this game end does not surprise me.
        \_ how interesting and insightful.  -tom
           \_ actually, a player made the last comment.

12/24   Hey people.  Things are going to be more expensive than you're
        used to.  Consumer items.  Stuff like that.  Be careful with your $
        next year.
        \_ are you saying inflation is here?
           \_ Merry Christmas!
        \_ What are you babbling about?  I get to see the pricetag before I
           buy something.

12/25   Has anyone encountered a "Happy Holidays" virus (Mac) that
        reconfigures one's Telnet application on Christmas Day? -elizp
        \_ It's called an Easter Egg. Not a virus. If you play Lemmings
           on Christmas Day, you get Christmas Lemmings.
           \_ Which version of Lemmings?
                \_ The one where they fall off the cliff when chased over the
                   edge by a Disney employee driving a truck.
                        \_ Ride bike!
                                \_ I don't think Linux would have saved them.
                                   A nice thought, though.

12/25   Merry fucking Christmas everyone - may your tree burn down
        and your turkey be rife with salmonella.
        \_ don't talk about my momma like that
                \_ They feed turkeys too many antibiotics for that these
                   days.  You could eat them raw and it would cure your
                \_ there are better sources for turkeys.
