12/31   How can one view a document written in DocBook XML format directly?
        The links I found are all about developing using DocBook or convert
        it to something else, neither of which I am interested.

12/31  Anyone know what I'm supposed to do with broken hard disks? Am I
       supposed to recycle them somewhere or is the general trash the only
       place for them?
        \_ If you live in Fremont, there's a place you can drop off electronics
           stuff for recycling.  I don't have the address right now.
        \_ http://accrc.org berkeley
        \_ RMA

12/31   Can pigs, chicken and fish be infected with Mad Cow disease?
        \_ Forgot about pigs, but definitely not chicken or fish. You
           can read the studies if you just dump BSE into google.
        \_ what does the word "cow" mean to you?
           \_ Well, if Mad Cow were only confined to cows, we wouldn't be
              worrying about it, would we?
        \_ No, they can't.

1/1     Is Welfare Unconstitutional?
        http://members.tripod.com/~GOPcapitalist/constitution.html
        \_ This is silly.  The way to attack welfare is to note it is
           immoral, not unconstitutional.
        \_ brilliant.  what a fucking genius.  someone give this guy an
           honorary law degree!  I particularly like his dollar bill
           ribbon campaign.
           \_ I didn't see the dollar bill campaign.  Was it on the
              front page?
              \_ his site is so badly organized, it's hard to tell what's
                 intended to be the "front page."  The dollar bill thing is
                 http://members.tripod.com/~GOPcapitalist/capitalism.html
        \_ No. It is not.  It is also not what you meant to ask.  The
           relavent question is:  Is FEDERAL welfare unconstitutional?
           The answer to that is also 'no'.  -crebbs
           I haven't considered that question, but I would tend to doubt
           it.  -crebbs
           \_ But...but...but...everything written by lonely cranks on the
              Internet is TRUE, right?!
           \_ Anyway, the Supreme Court has ruled that since every single
              thing in the universe is somehow related to inter-state
              thing in the universe is somehow related to inter-state
              commerce, the feds can make whatever laws they want so long
              as the supreme court likes them.  Also, if you want to start a
              constitutionality troll thread you should start with something
              where at least one reasonable person will be on your side.
              Here, I'll help. (see above) -crebbs

           \_ Oh, and anyway, the Supreme Court has ruled that since every
              single thing in the universe is somehow related to
              inter-state commerce, the feds can make whatever laws they

              \_ Yes.  We need fewer liberal activist judges on the Supreme
                 Court.  Too much legislating from the bench going on, not
                 enough respect for the founding document of this country.

1/1     You have to be an idiot or a lawyer to think that the interstate
        commerce clause gives congress constitutional authority to
        legislate regarding domestic violence. -peroof
        \_ Or both!

1/1     Any SF/Berkeley store where I can try out a headphone amp? I'm
        suspicious about them, but all the reviews I've read rave about
        them.
        \_ Order one from link:headphone.com.  There's a 30-day return policy.
           Just make sure that your headphone is worthy of an amp.
