7/4     Happy 4th of July.  In consideration of the event, it might be a
        good idea to carefully read the following and give it some thought:  -John
        \_ Please note the 2nd.  Yes, it applies in California too.
           \_ Not really. I can't bear arms of my choosing in public. My right
              has been infringed.
           \_ Apparently Article 1, section 10, paragraph 3 does not apply either
              if this drivers' license for illegals thing passes in Kalifornia.
              \_ No right is absolute. Ex. 1st amd protection of free speech
                 doesn't bar defamation suits or protect people who falsely
                 yell fire in a crowded theater.
                 AFAIK, it is still legal to own (and carry) some type of
                 firearm in CA.
                 \_ So when we're limited down to only black powder rifles
                    more appropriate to the Framers time, would you stil think
                    the second amendment hasn't been regulated away?
           \_ Apparently Article 1, section 10, paragraph 3 does not apply
              either if this drivers' license for illegals thing passes in
              \_ Shouldn't all you good patriotic freepers be out celebrating
                 4th of July?  What are you doing skulking around on the motd?
                 \_ Read and  recite it bitch. I was out shooting on the 4th.
        \_ I think famous member Sameer Parekh nailed it when he said, "THIS
           IS A COOL HOLIDAY.  It's the day we celebrate overthrowing the
        \_ Congress and SCOTUS have gutted the 1st, 5th, and 10th.  Do you have
           a compilation of court decisions that have altered the Bill of
           Rights from its original intent?

7/4     Stupid LIBERALS, here's proof that Conservatism != Pro-Christianity:
        Also Christrianity != Anti-Gay. Hope you learn something, LIBERALS:
        \_ Mmmm...  idiocy is rampant over holidays.

7/4     STOP THE WAR IN VIETNAM!!! Stop destroying Vietnam villages!
        Power to the Weathermen!

7/4     Ultimate Geek Award?  Man recites pi from memory to 83,431 places
        \_ Lots of people have memorized the bible or koran, but I guess this
           is all the more impressive as it deals with numerical non-
           repetitive patterns.  -John
           \_ Well you should really compare the information content.  I think
              because of redundancy and predictability natural language has
              somehting like 5-6 bits per word, and because of randomness there
              it like 2.3 bits per digit of Pi.
        \_ According to the article, this guy memorizes the digits while the
           current record holder calculated the digits from memory.
           \_ What the fuck is that supposed to mean.  They meant "recite",
              not "calculate"
           \_ According to the article, this guy = current record holder.
              \_ "If verified and recognized by the Guinness Book of Records,
                 Haraguchi's feat would beat his own previous best - currently
                 under review - of 54,000 digits. The official current record-
                 holder, also Japanese, calculated pi from memory to 42,195
                 decimal places in 1995."
                 \_ You're an idiot.  Almost as much as the "journalist".
