Berkeley CSUA MOTD

        Hilarious thread on 61b newsgroup from February. Look at the
        first message, and at Shewchuk's reply (Shewchuk was teaching
        61b at the time).
        \_ It's Microsoft's fault.

9/29    30 year aniversary for Behind the Green Door is coming
        anyone up for a group viewing party?
        \_ Have you ever seen it?  It's easily some of the absolutely worst and
           most boring pr0n ever created.

9/29    "We defeated the Israelis" declares member of Arafat security forces.
        \_ Written by... Wafa Amr. Unbiased press? Hehehe...
        \_ defeat is not always military.  And this last siege HURT Isreal bad.
           It looked bad, they flat out said no to the UN, they pissed off the
           US, they helped shore up the popularity of a struggling Arafat,
           AND they didn't get what they came for.
           \_ Depends on the goal.  If the goal is to keep a weak Arafat around
              by giving him a "boost" in order to delay or stop the formation
              of a Palestinian pseudo-state, then I'd say the Palestinian
              people lost big time, even if Arafat and his thugs won a short
              reprieve from exile, jail, or death.  Either way, the thugs were
              hardly the ones who 'defeated' Israel or did anything more than
              eat the food, drink the water, and use the eletricity the
              Israelis gave them.  Not much of a siege when the siegers are
              delivering food by truck everyday to your front door, eh?

09/29   Couple weeks ago, I told you blondes were genetically inferior.
        They are dye-ing out:
        \_ what a waste of 60 seconds of my life.
        \_ We need more misleading descriptions of URLs on the motd.  This
           article says nothing about genetic inferiority.  It has quotes that
           say blonde hair is not a genetic inferiority.  Please read your
           own articles before posting.  Thanks.
        \_ They are losingout to fake blondes, does this mean fake blondes
           also age faster?
           \_ sure, whatever you want to believe

9/29    Fist of the North Star.  Gotta love it!
        \_ uh, yeah.  i liked Fist of the North Star, also.  it's not
           exactly a new film.  are you making fun of the Green Door thread?
           \_ FNS is on SciFi right now.
              "Are you trying to tickle me to death?"
              "You're already dead".
              \_ ah.  TV.
                 \_ Cable.  Final scene right now.  The teachings are true!
                    Northern Star and Southern Cross should never fight!  But
                    there is no Southern Cross!  Hee-Yaa!
