6/19    Anyone remember playing TW2002?  telnet to
        to play.  We want more players!
        \_ No... don't tempt me.  I had free time... -geordan
           \_ Come on, you know you want to.  There's only about 6 active
              players right now, and the game was reset only about a week
              ago.  It's still anybody's game!
              \_ I tried to join, and the Tradewars menu only let me
                 get (S)hip listings or (Q)uit back to bbs.
                 \_ Yeah, I noticed some of you signed on, but not on TW2002
                    Just wait a day for the sysop to validate your accounts.

6/19    What does the lowercase "e" on food packages from europe mean?
        \_ "edible".
             \_ Seriously?
        \_ erection
        \_ KOSHeR
        \_ this isn't the same thing as that described in sec. 5.1 of
           , is it?
                \_ No, that's a number prefixed by an uppercase "E". but thanks.
                   This is a single large lowercase "e" after the net weight.
                   "600g e"
                \_ No, that's a number prefixed by an uppercase "E". but
                   thanks. This is a single large lowercase "e" after the net
                   weight. "600 g e"
        \_ "Also, the amended rules define the term "e" mark -- a
           certification mark used in the European Community (EC) to
           establish that the package is appropriately filled in accordance
           with EC standards.  Failure to allow the use of this mark could
           impede American companies selling in the EC."
           \_ No fucking way!  You trying to say they're creating artificial
              barriers to trade as a form of protectionism?!  It's madness!
              \_ Except that they themselves have to follow those standards?
                 \_ Except that they themselves helped create these barriers
                    which simply codified their previous practices whereas a
                    non-EC country will have to go through a compliance
                    test and spend money changing their business methods to
                    comply.  Thanks for playing Trade Barrier 2002!

6/19    Constitutionally, are all citizen of United States are equal?
        It is obviously not.  Because those who are not born in US
        are not eligible for Presidency.  Besides that, what are other
        right which neutralized citizen are not allowed to have?
                    \_ you mean naturalized?
                       \_ no, neutered.
        Idealy, shouldn't all citizen to be equal?
                                - 2nd class citizen
        \_ you have to speak English to be president.
           \_ No you don't. Listen to Bush for a while...
              \_ Yawn.  No cookie.
           \_ There's a difference between "subliminable" and "Idealy".
              Actually now that I think about it, this post is obviously
              a troll trying to sound like a FOB--the errors aren't
              the kind that a non-English speaker makes.  -tom
              \_ Yeah, it's kind of pathetic.
              \_ I agree.  Pretty much no cookie on the whole thing.

6/19    I met this girl over the phone, we talked for over 3 hours.
        Since then, we've emailed for a few days, but now she's not
        replied to me for almost 48 hours. What should I do?
        Tips? URLs? thanks.
        \_ you have to watch out for those "guys" you meet
           over the phone
        \_ ask her to meet for dinner
        \_ are you sure she isn't out on a vacation or something?
           or talking to her girlfriends wondering what to do?
        \_ chill out.  she'll either get back to you or not.  maybe you were
           too fast and too pushy and desperate sounding.  48 hours?  you're
           in a big panic?  you sound desperate.  relax.
        \_ Are you the same guy who almost moved in w/ a girl you are
           interested in?
        \_ Wow.  48 hours.  she must be fucking someone else.  kill her.  kill
           her now.
           \_ After you fuck her, of course.
        \_ sometimes you lose.  play again?
        \_ Thanks for the replies. She lives in the midwest, me in Bay Area.
           Looking for a URL with more tips. thanks.
           \_ Hm..  makes it difficult to kill her.  you could contract it
        \_ Do not get emotionally involved with someone you have not met
           in person yet. I would recommend meeting her before things get
           any more serious.
        \_ If you haven't met your cybersweetie in person, it's just
        \_ I already have a friend and a colleague getting married with
           people they first met cyberly.  So good luck.
