11/27   The Thin Red Line, WORST WAR MOVIE EVER. Imagine watching
        Saving Private Ryan where this guy is bored and disillusioned
        and complains and bitches and moans for three hours while
        he reminesce about his wife and all the while the director's
        trying to mix war scenes with artsy fartsy crap. 3 FUCKING
        HOURS. This movie wins the Motd's Lamest Movie of the year
        \_ There's no accounting for taste.
        \_ It's not a war movie. It's an art film, made to look like
           a war movie by a director far too long out of practice.

11/26   I am new to file sharing, so here is a dumb question.  Does the use
        of p2p program protects the client more than direct http/ftp download?
        \_ Depends on what you mean by "protect"--your security against
           exploits/trojans?  Anonymity?  -John

11/27   What do you guys think about this whole basketball player/fan
        incident? Is it the player's fault? Or the fans?
        \_ Idiot.

11/27   What's the purpose of having/requesting the three-digit
        "security code" on the back of credit cards? I don't see
        how it makes transactions more secure; anyone tapping into
        a phone call or computer network can pick up that number as
        easily as the CC# itself and expiration date.
        \_ It does prevent dumpster divers (aka, employees) from taking
           all the necessary information off of the carbon copy.  In stores,
           you are never asked for the extra 3 digits, as they can see you
           have the card, but online, it is supposed to prove that you are
           holding the card.  But, if you can monitor the communications,
           you can do anything you want.

11/27   There will be no discussion of the dollar's collapse, casualties
        in Iraq, the soon to be cancelled election, or anything else that
        might reflect unfavourably on Our Glorious Leader.
        \_ Ah, the liberal commentators have reared their ugly heads.
           How does it feel to be continuously losing, out of power,
           and basically wrong? And what hath happened to thine cries
           for emigration my faithful liberal? Useful idiots indeed!
        \_ hey motd economists: I've been puzzling over the difference
           between "tax and spend liberals" and "deficit spending
           republicans" since I realized the dollar did this during
           Reagan's tenure as well.  What differences are there between
           taxing citizens and siphoning value out of the US economy
           to fund government activity (besides the marketing appeal
           of claiming to not tax)?  This is a serious question because
           I don't claim to understand the global market dynamics.

11/27   I'm trying to find information on the pros/cons of using
        WebMD (and other health care information websites), and have
        been pretty unsuccessful googling. Does anyone know of
        sites that discuss such topics? Thanks.

11/27   Happy Holidays everyone!  And in the spirit, I present to you this
        story.  Teenage girl murders her mother and posts about it on her
        LiveJournal.  Not a hoax.  Hilariously, a lot of the comments on her
        blog are defending her.
                \_ nice web page name! - danh (Google News search)

        If drafting can't be possible, let's try a bit of advertisement,
        guilt trip, and peer pressure.
        \_ And this is different from Clinton's praise of the military
           while he sent them to Kosovo and godknows where because?
           This only after he realized they could win votes did he decide to
           stop kicking them out of the White House.
