3/18    Are there any reputable places on-line where I can buy side-view
        mirrors for my 1992 Civic?  I don't want any fancy lights, just
        plain side-view mirrors.  There are a lot of sites on-line that
        sell them, but a lot of them seem sleazy.  For example, I've found
        4 or 5 sites that are obviously fronts for the same company.
        Thanks.  -- mikeym
        \_ Stupid question, but have you tried a junkyard?  -John
        \_ What about an authorized Honda dealer?
           \_ I called one and they wanted around $130 for each mirror.
              I've seen them for much less on-line, I just don't know which
              places are reputable.  -- mikeym

3/17    What's better, 10 years in a Turkish prison or sex

3/18    I am going to buy some RAM (for a powerbook G4 12).  Havn't shopped
        for RAM for a while, I looked around on websites and noticed some
        module manufacturers such as Kingston offer "ValueRAM" (order by spec)
        and system specific ones.  There is a large price difference between
        the two, but try as I do, I cannot think of a reason a config.
        specific module is better than a "Value RAM" rated for the same spec,
        unless the system manufacturer has some secret spec that they only
        disclose to Kingston.  Are there really differences between them
        other than price?

3/18    Pictures before and after of how the American girl was bulldozed.
        \_ This reminds me of the famous picture of a man standing in front of
           a column of tanks in Tianmen square.  I guess Israeli soldiers
           have the power of will.
           \_ It just proves that they are less than human.
        \_ This reminds me of the scene in Spies Like Us when Chevy Chase
           yells out "Don't Shoot, We're Americans!"  DUH. do you think your
           american rights have any importance in other countries?
        \_ So basically, the guy who took the pictures watched someone get
           run over and his first thought wasn't "maybe I should help",
           but instead, "I should be taking pictures!". sweet.
           \_ Are you that same asshole that was claiming she wasn't
              deliberately run over, but she tripped and fell?
           \_ Err ... 3 other people were trying helping her, as can be seen
              in the picture.
           \_ ... and the pictures show when she was "safe" and when she was
              already run over.

3/18    There's something refreshing about deleting most of the porn off my
        \_ Curious, why didn't you delete all of your porn?
           \_ 'Cause the kiddie stuff is too tought to find?
           \_ It's hard to quit cold-turkey. The rest will be gone soon...
              (yeah right!)
