6/9     I had posted earlier about the CA State Tax board not cashing my
        check after two weeks and me being worried. They just cashed it last
        week. My mom's accountant told me they can take up to 6 weeks to cash
        your check. Just FYI.
        \_ I wish I was that lucky. Thanks for the FYI.

6/9     Does anyone know how to configure a NIC to be in stealth/
        promiscuous mode in Windows 2000? Please email the answer to me.
        Thanks.                                 -- ivy

6/9     Why are Japanese people SO fucked up?
        \_ Well it's quite clear, this just goes to further prove the dangers
           of knives and sharp implements. How many more children must die
           before we do the responsible thing and ban knives?
        \_ they are space aliens.  look at their circulatory system; it's
           not the same as the rest of the world, yes there are documents
           to support this.
           \_ lol.  whilst teaching in Japan, I often had older students
              tell me that Japanese people have longer intestines due to
              the disproportionate amount of vegetables they ate.  then
              again, Japan's Ministry of Trade once denied Vuarnet access
              to the J. ski market on the basis that Japanese snow is
              different from snow anywhere else.  --erikred
        \_ with a pop. 60% that of the US, a significantly smaller landmass,
           and one "incident" for every ten of ours, if the Japanese are
           fucked up, we ought to have our entire country committed, and
           quickly.  otoh, if you're asking why this psycho went off like
           he did, damn, I wish I could tell you.  when they do go for it,
           they really go for it.  --erikred
           \_ I thought the question was asking why one could purchase
              used schoolgirl's underwear from vending machines. -geordan
                 \_ I looked for these in Tokyo, but I do not think they
                    exist.  A lot of the "Japanese people are weird" shit
                    is made up and exaggerated.  -John
                    \_ A Japanese girl told me this and many other stories
                       of bizarre goings on in Japan were true.  She described
                       being molested herself on trains.  She told me of
                       random people offering to buy her underwear.  A
                       Chinese girl I know who spent 3 years in Japan also
                       told me of purchase attempts, vending machines, and
                       all sorts of stuff.  I think everything we've heard is
                       probably true.  But think what goes on in the US.
                       Peole are weird.  --PeterM
                       \_ i've met alot of sheltered kids from the
                       suburbs in college who think all the crazy , fucked-up
                       stuff that goes on in America(with the exception of
                       what they can see on TV) is basically made up.
                       Alot of poeple like to think that crazy stuff is
                       made up to justify their own boring, trite little
        \_ are there a proportionally large number of H4T 45N B4B3Z
           that are japanese?
           \_ sky?  your thoughts?
           \_ It's all about the Koreans, fools!
              \_ Its all about the sailor suits fool!
        \_ All that restraint and "hidden emotion" crap.  It's got
           to come out some how.
           \_ Corruption from the evil Westerners.
              \_ train frottage
        \_ It's the lack of dentists there. They think crooked teeth are sexy.
           \_ that's england.  remember, they like starch and fluoridated
              water there for food.
             \_ no, it's Japan too
             \_ japanese tend to have really crappy teeth.

6/9     motd has really sucked lately.
           and econuts (idiotic global warming alarmists) vs. intelligent
           thinking human beings.
        \_ Just last week we had two flame wars, on democracy vs. socialism
           and econuts (h07 42N CH1X) vs. intelligent thinking human beings
           (idiotic global warming alarmists).
           \_ Did not!   Idiot.
2001/6/10-11 [Industry/Jobs] UID:21471 Activity:high
6/9     It kinda scares me that my CEO is making major purchasing
        decisions based on my "research" on the subject.  I don't like
        the idea that a company's life can weigh on the decisions of a
        person like myself with little to no experience on the subject
        except that I can read and write Japanese to a degree.  No, it
        isn't bad ass!
        Overall things are easy.  I enjoy going to work actually because
        the guys are cool and I learn quite a bit.  we have three very
        senior level people so I get good input from them.  I tend to
        trust their judgment more than my own just on the basis of
        experience.  My only complaint is that we've done little to move
        forward since I've come aboard so I'm not comfortable with out
        situation. Should I look elsewhere?
        \_ An idiot like you who confuses "way" and "weigh" should be
           grateful to be employed. --dim
           \_ he spelled "judgment" right, which is impressive
        \_ An idiot like you who confuses 'our' with 'out' should be glad
           to be employed.
           \_ shut the fuck up dim
        \_ No.  An idiot who can barely write coherent English is lucky
           to be employed at all.
        \_ As long as your higher-ups are aware of the negative aspects
           of your research, the responsibility is solely on them if
           if it fails.   And have a little self esteem.
        \_ It's not whether you can make the best possible decision.
           It's whether you can make a better decision than the idiot
           who would be doing so if you don't.
