11/8    Google toolbar now does distributed computing. Whoo!
        \_ I want to give free computing power to google because...?
           \_ because you want to. and if you don't, don't press the button.
              last i checked, it was still opt-in, not opt-out.
           \_ cute, you rebellious POS.
              \_ Whatever.  The question remains unanswered.
        \_ this is old. you got randomly chosen.

11/8    when it's raining and the power is out, my wife gets extra horny and
        wants to make love.  Does that happen to you?
        \_ That's funny, your wife wants to make love to me too.
        \_ yes.  that must be your wife on my cellphone now.
        \_ That's similar to what some phychologists predicted last year right
           after the 9/11 attacks.  During crisis situation people tend to
           stay emotionally close and intimate.  Some of them even predicted
           the birth rate would rise nine months after 9/11.  Don't know
           whether it came true or not.
           \_ Salon had an article regarding this, and they said it did come
              to pass
           \_ i lost my virginity on 9/12 --college student
              \_ You got poked for the first time or you poked someone for the
                 first time?
                 \_ both.
                    \_ Kinky.
        \_ You'd better hope you're always with her when the power goes out.
           Where do you live????
        \_ Convenient.  Go flip the circuit breaker and pretend it's a
           power outage.
        \_ That's because with the power out she can't play everquest so she
           turns to you out of sheer maddening boredom.
           \_ that's mean.  that's just a mean thing to say.
              \_ truth hurts.
           \_ And it's probably not true.  More likely it's because the
              lights are out, so she doesn't have to see what the OP looks
              like naked.
              \_ Yeah duh because the rest of the time the lights never go out
                 because the light switches are broken in a permanent "on"
                 position.  It's all about Everquest and you know it.

11/9    Meteor shower on Nov 18 and 19:
        \_ Get out your tinfoil!
        \_ viewing suggestions?  Obviously... get away from city
           lights.  Anything else?
        \_ problem is it coincides with a full moon, which will overpower
           many of the smaller meteor streaks.  Aside from that, this year is
           supposed to be better than last.
           \_ I saw about 3 last year over 2 hours of waiting.  Blah.
              \_ At its peak I saw 300 over 3 minutes of waiting.  -pld
              \_ Are you sure you're thinking of the Leonids?! Last year
                 was the best year I've ever seen and I look every year.
                 Many times I saw more than 3 *at one time*. --dim
                 \_ yes. it was lame.
                    \_ Where were you?  Indoors?  It helps to be outside
                       when viewing a meteor shower. -geordan
                       \_ Outdoors on the back porch during what the TV said
                          was peak hours on a hillside.  I WUZ ROBBED!
                          \_ Which direction were you looking?
                             \_ I don't recall now but it was whatever the TV
                                said.  I tried the other side of the house and
                                it didn't help so I went to bed.
                    \_ I was in castro valley during the leonids last year
                       with all the city lights in a slightly hazy sky, and
                       I was able to catch about 2-3 per minute.  Are you
                       sure you were out during the peak hours?     -mice
        \_ we went out into the central valley farmland, and got great viewing
           of last year's leonids. part of teh PRoblem is teh peak meteor
           storm came like an hour late.

11/8    The Anti-American Era Is Coming to an End
        ... smack down
        \_ You know how your man Bush could make us believe he doesn't have
           a boner for Iraqi oil?  He could make it illegal for any Americans
           to profit from the exploitation of Iraqi oil production after the
           "regime change."  Let the oil pros do this pro bono, just for the
           betterment of Iraq, and we might actually believe him.  Until
           then, give up hope of any real legitimacy for the Iraqi campaign.
        \_ Since they fit fine on just one line, there is no need to mask
           freerepublic URLs using's URL shortener.

        porn surf at work is now safe.
        \_ uh whatever.  who is actually surfing porn at work?  who do you
           work for?  i need a stock to short.
           \_ Tech support at the company I worked for routinely visited
              pr0n sites. Since we were one of the primary providers of
              web hosting boxes to online pr0n sites they claimed it was
              all work related...
              I'd give you a stock symbol, but the company doesn't exist
