7/18    When Dowd is bashing a Democrat, you know it's over.  And for you
        knuckleheads who can't figure it out, this is an OPINION piece from
        the NYT. (
        \_ The last time you posted an OPINION piece, someone complained
           that you were posting an OPINION as fact. Of course, you
           retaliated by claiming that he didn't know how to read.
           IIRC, you posted an oped as proof that "BUSH (& BLAIR) WIN
           AGAIN". I think you're the knucklehead for not being able
           to figure out what someone is complaining about and
           retaliating with a completely unrelated insult.
        \_ Wow.  So the New York Times' stupidest columnist is just as
           capable at launching content-free, bubble-headed personal attacks
           against Democrats as against Republicans.  What a fucking
           suprise.  This is the same moron who was writing entire columns
           about the fashion choices of the candidates during the primaries.
        \_ What's over? The world? The pretense that the NYT is a "liberal"
           newspaper? What?
        \_ When someone starts throwing around the term knucklehead, you
           know they've been watching too much O'Reilly.
             \_ I say knucklehead quite a bit, and i've never watched an
                entire episode of O'Reilly, and, god-willing, never will.
                it's something I picked up in the army or perhaps watching
                some army character on tv :) -np001

7/18    I have a 250GB Western Digital IDE disk (in a firewire enclosure)
        badblocks size    244198584 * 1024 = 250059350016 bytes
        fdisk size     30401 * 16065 * 512 = 250056737280 bytes
        Any ideas why the difference?             2612736 bytes
        \_ Nevermind,  'fdisk -s /dev/sda' shows 244198584 -op

7/18    Why euro-peons hate amerika:
        \_ would anyone be willing to comment from experience on where
           canada stands on the statism spectrum?  closer to the US or to
           Europe?  would his criticisms apply to canada?
        \_ Wow.  That's so formulaic, it's amusing.
           Part 1: what he used to think (establish author as fair and
                   unbiased critic who's seen both sides of the issue)
           Part 2: his "enlightenment"
           Part 3: occasional acceptance of some small flaw is his new
                   perfect XYZ, usually revoked by some later "but..." section
                   to further the appearance of objectivity
           Part 4: set extremist work from opposing view up as strawman, and
                   use it to demonstrate validity of all arguments
           \_ So.. uhh.. what's your point?  Perhaps it's formulaic
              because that's what his experiance was actually like?  That
              formula of thinking is very common when you live for a few
              years in a foriegn country.  Although I don't know that
              part 4 was particularly useful.  Are you saying the article
              is invalid or untrue because it is formulaic?
           \_ interesting article (ostensibly a book review) on this
