2/27    To all you constitutional revisionists who think gay marriage is
        somehow implied or sanctioned by the US Constitution, you guys are
        full of shit. 200 years of history and there was never any
        ambiguity about this point. If you want to play this bullshit
        game of "interpretation" you should really get your head out of your
        ass. The whole bending of words to support gay marriage is an
        anathema on common sense. If you really want to recognize gay
        marriage then fucking pass a law stating as such. Otherwise,
        leave it the fuck alone. This type of revisionism is setting a
        bad precedent for the rule of law. We might as well dump the whole
        thing into a fucking shredder.
        \_ It made me chuckle to hear the president talk about the brushing
           aside of 200 years of american jurisprudence, yet he had no trouble
           with brushing aside habeas corpus...
        \_ The constitution was always meant to be interpreted differently
           in its day (it is kinda vague, but has certains truths and ideals).
           "We the People" meant white men in their day, but now it includes
           men and women of all races, persuasions, etc. If you want strict
           interpretations of anything, join the Taliban or Al Queda.
                \_ The is a mechanism for additional interpretations
                   of the Constitution, they are called Amendments.
                   There are 17 of them.
                   \_ umm, dude, it's 27.
        \_ U.S. Constitution, equal protection clause -- this is why gay
           marriage can go to the U.S. Supreme Court.  (Notice how I never
           say anything about whether it will be voted up or down.)
        \_ They said the same thing about slavery, but not as eloquently
           as you do.

2/27    I've googled this but w/o any luck. I'm trying to find the mpeg/wmv
        file of the AOL 9.0 commercial with Jerry Stiller and that rap/hip
        hop guy where they made a fish out of AOL CDs. Thanks.
        \- "that rap/hip hp guy" = mr. s. dogg, of long beach, ca. --master psb
           \_ that's "hop" to you.

2/28    In Mountain View, voting in the upcoming election is being held in a
        church. I find this disturbing. Is there something illegal about it
        or is separation of church and state just a lofty idea?
        \_ Not a bad idea for a troll, but the execution is a bit too
            \_ Agreed, if someone wants to get a response to something this
               stupid, it pretty much has to be in the middle of an already
               heated thread.
        \_ oh my god dude that is so horrible!  you should sue or call the
           aflcio or bomb the church!  i cant believe anyone would violate
           chuch and state like that!  ill bet the priest makes people take
           communion or something before theyre allowed to vote!  im sure it
           is totally illegal!  im am as shocked and disturbed as you are! in
           fact my doctor said i should stop reading and posting to the motd
           and i think you should stop too!

        / Dear motd doctor, lately I've been      \
        | needing a lot of sleep. I need at least |
        | 10-12 hours of sleep. I got a blood     |
        | check from the lab and my doc says I'm  |
        | ok and just exercise more. However I    |
        | don't feel like myself at all, even     |
        | with the exercise. Sometimes I feel     |
        | like I could faint in the middle of a   |
        | day. What other problems could I have,  |
        | like brain tumor, cancer, etc? I'm 30   |
        \ years old btw.                          /

        \_ Check your blood pressure.  I had something like that once, turned
           out to be unusually high blood pressure due to stress.  How much
           sleep do you usually need?  Also, try to see a Russian doctor.
           I had terrible luck with American-educated doctors for some reason.
             -- ilyas
                \_ actually, when I get up too quickly, I feel really dizzy,
                   and occasionally I'd be near fainting. I'll go check my
                   blood pressure, thanks.                      -op
                   \_ That's probably Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia: A
                      common symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  Are you
                      a student? Take a semester off.  Doctors don't have a
                      clue about CFS. It's a unusual neurological illness.
                      clue about CFS. It's a subtle neurological illness.
                      Rest is the key.  If you rest, your CNS can heal and
                      the fatigue will go away. If you keep pushing
                      yourself, it gets much worse.  What's your email?  I
                      yourself, it gets much worse.  What's your email?  I
                      can send you some info if you want.
                      can send you my expreience.
        \_ you're dying.  can i have your soda disk space?
                \_ godamn! You're scaring me, though, when I have days that
                   I have problem getting up (feeling too tired) I do feel
                   like I'm dying. I guess I'll go make an appointment
                   again... wait 2 weeks, get referred, then get the same
                   useless exercise advice again. By the way I'm not fat
                   or anything, so who gives a shit about exercise      -op
                   \_ I used to feel like you do, but then I started jogging
                      one hour a day and eating healthy, now I feel good,
                      except when I miss some exercise or eat something bad.
                      \_ You need exercise anyways to maintain the strength
                         of your heart and lungs.  If they are weak, you
                         will feel constantly tired.  Try cycling.  Running
                         is just painful and you'll find it hard to
                   \_ I used to feel like you do, but then I started jogging
           \_ Mooo!  mooo!  moooooahahheehehahahhahahaaa!!!

                      except when I miss some exercise or eat something bad.
                      \_ shoo!  go away you little bastard!  I want his
                         soda disk space!
                         motivate yourself to do it.

        \_ do you eat a lot of beef? maybe you have the mad cow disease?
           \_ Mooo!  mooo!  moooooahahheehehahahhahahaaa!!!
        \_ Three things: 1) Anemia possibly, 2) See another doctor, 3) don't
           rely on the advice of motd for health issues.
        \_ doesn't this sound kinda serious to you? i'd insist on some mri
           \_ I hate you.
           or cat scans or something at least.
        \_ sounds like chronic fatigue syndrome. have you had
           a viral illness lateley?
        \_ Adult-onset diabetes is big these days.  Your symptoms could
           be from wild blood-sugar fluctuations.  Eat "100% whole wheat"
           bread ("multi-grain" doesn't count) and avoid all other grains
           (even white rice -- eat brown rice instead).  Avoid red meat
           (beef), eat white meat (chicken) and fish.  Eat a salad or
           two a day.  And go read this book:

2/28    Does anyone know anything about how to create a nonprofit local
        802.11 ISP? Basically, I want to know what types of antennas would
        be good to provide a good range. I don't want to make money off of
        this, just provide a service, charge like $10/mo. There's a *lot*
        of info on the web, I was just wondering if anyone has already gone
        through and filtered the info...
        \_ O'Reilly's Wireless Hacks may have some useful info.
        \_ I'm trying to do this myself, and am at a similar phase.  Drop
           me an email.  Also, where are you trying to do this?  If you're
           in the bay area, then you're in luck.  Many others have similar
           plans, and are working to make it happen. -dans
        \_ can you guys give me some pointers?  thanks  -kngharv
            \_ email me. -dans
        \_ I just give it up to my neighbors. --WiFi slut
