        Border Patrol Flash Game. Kill immigrants, drug smugglers, and
        pregnant Mexican women.
        \_ It must be so nice to live in such an intellectually truncated
           world.
        \_ I'm glad you can sit there in your nice Aeron chair, drinking
           lattes, without a care for your security, and believing that
           law enforcement of all kinds are just modern day Nazis.
           \_ I'm glad you can sit around in your Aeron chair, and live
              in fear that the terrorists really want your php coding ass
              while you don't have the balls for supporting nuking
              them first.
              \_ Your counter-flame has been classified as: weak.  Keep
                 trying, grasshopper.
              \_ I've always said nuke first and ask questions later.
                 I was saddened the day Bush, Sr. stopped W88 production.

4/26    Funniest thing, but coke seems to have come back to the bay area
        in a big way.  The most amusing thing about it is the new mixer
        that people are doing - lines of 1/2 coke, 1/2 gunpowder.
        Apparently  it is harder to get the gunpowder than the coke in SF.
        Discuss how banning gunshops now lets people fetishize gunpowder.
        \_ Doesn't that have a name?
           \_ See "Lord of War" starring Nick Cage.
        \_ I haven't noticed. Everyone I know smokes dope and the etards
           do ecstacy. Where I live I see mostly crack heads. Where is
           all the coke? -- LA expat
           \_ I've seen coke, but only heard people joke about brown-brown.

4/26    I hate modal dialog boxes.  I realize its probably not possible to
        make all application-modal dialogs non-modal without breaking a million
        things, but in WinXP is there any way I can globally demote all
        system-modal dialogs to be application-modal?

4/26    Popular Mechanics breakdown on alternitive fuels, good basics
      http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/earth/2690341.html?page=1&c=y
        \_ if we use too much alternative fuels, what about
        petroleum based products like plastics and tar (for roads)
        will these increase in cost (cheap plastic)?
          \_ Could you rewrite this?  I'm actually not sure what you're
             asking.
        \_ things like plastics could be cheaper due to volume of
           crude oil processed for fuel purposes.
        \_ I think they understated the importance of cost-of-manufacturing
           in terms of resources for the different types.  (Especially WRT
           ethanol)

4/26    Hey motd boob guy, good news for you:
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060425/od_nm/china_bras_dc
        \_ Superior Chinese boob breeding!  Not like you western type.
          \_ If you'd read the article, you'd know they blamed it on Superiour
             Chinese boob FEEDING, just like us western type.
          \_ RTFA, its not superior breeding, its all about FEEDING.
        \_ The results, while interesting, do not mean anything.  You won't all
        of a sudden see Asian women's bust size on par with other ethnic groups.
        Bust size is primarily genetic, just like height, hips, neck length, etc.
        Nutrition plays a role in extreme cases (ie. starvation).  Compare
        Asian-Americans to other -American ethnic groups, which arguably have had
        similar nutritional diets and it's easy to see that body types are just
        different by nature.  Look at Jewish women, regardless of diet, they are
        just naturally more busty than other groups.

           \_ (reformatted by motd format nazi)
           \_ I thought I read somewhere that average heights of Japanese
              people increased pretty drastically since WWII due to changes
              in nutrition.  Assuming this isn't b.s., wouldn't the same
              sort of phaenomenon affect bust size?  That, and maybe an
              increasing popularity of boob jobs.  -John
              \_ The increase in bust size in young girls in America is
                 directly related to the increase in obesity.  Fat girls
                 have bigger chichis than skinny girls.  -tom
                 \_ Yeah, but my question is, wouldn't not-fat-but-better-
                    fed girls have better chichis than skinny girls?  -John
                    \_ Chichi size is a function of body fat, so, yes.
                       (Assuming you think larger = better).  -tom

4/26    Seven years ago today, Bush Sr. said:
        "Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life,\
        I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray\
        the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in\
        my view, the most insidious of traitors."\
        -- former President George H.W. Bush, April 26, 1999
        \_ Worse even than atheists?

        Seagate announces 750GD HD!!! YEAH BABY!!! 1T is just around the
        corner!!! This is GREAT NEWS.
        \- is that extra space really going to change anything in your life?
           \_ YES!!! First of all I currently have about 600G of movies
              and pictures that I take with my 7M pixel camera, and I
              do a lot of video editting. Secondly, I use VMWare heavily and
              I "clone" instances of machines and it takes a lot of storage.
              The extra space gives me more options-- with the extra storage
              I can have fewer HDs in the case and maybe reduce 4 PCs I have
              (3 Linux 1 PC, 1 used as a cheap big storage box) and save
              electricity or save space, OR I can use all the boxes and have
              extra storage for backup. Thirdly, 750G HD will drive down the
              cost of 500G HD, which is GREAT NEWS. I'm REALLY excited.
              I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who is excited. This
              is GREAT NEWS for everyone!!!
              \_ ride bike!
                 \_ tom, you're an idiot.
                    \_ that wasn't my post, idiot.  -tom
              \_ You need to get out more.
                 \_ My work is programming. My hobby is programming pet
                    projects. I play games to relax. I watch MPG movies.
                    My life is the computer, and the computer is me. I
                    don't need to get out more. Thank you very much.
                    \_ No, seriously, you NEED to get out more.
                    \_ The scary thing is I can't decide if you are serious
                       or not.
        \_ think of all the VJ4R3Z and pr0n youcan store with that!!!
        \_ Interesting news, sure.  But GREAT NEWS?  I think the other guy
           has a good point.
        \_ You STILL need to get out more
        \_ OMG!!! I think I need to change my pants!!!!

4/26    Naked man in chimney in Hayward
        http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/local/14406818.htm
        \_ I believe consenting adults have the right to be naked in their own
           chimeneys.
        \_ So a side note in there is "booked at the (jail) on suspicion of
           being under the influence of drugs"  So if possessing or using
           illegal drugs is, well, illegal, how do celebrities officially get
           away with "and now I'm in cocaine rehab at Betty Ford" w/out ever
           being charged w/ a crime for drug use?  Is the official answer
           "they're too important for that"?
           \_ When celebrities get fucked out of their minds and find
              themselves naked, stuck somewhere they can't get out of, they
              don't call the fire department/police/what-have-you.
           \_ Better lawyers. Short of a chemical test of some sort, which a
              a better lawyer will advise you not to consent to, it's kind of
              hard to prove you, um, inhaled.
              \_ Being in rehab for drug X isn't admission of guilt?
                 \_ Nope. More to the point, it's not enough evidence to
                    warrant charges.
           \_ I don't think people who voluntarily go to rehab generally
              get arrested.

4/26    We have a job applicant where his expected salary seems a bit high and
        I'm curious what he made at his last job.  What would you expect for a
        tech support lead for a large school district in the SFBA?
        \_ normally this type of info is requested on a job application
           but is only given to the hiring manager and HR. -shac
           \_ Personally, I almost always leave that blank on application
              forms.  I don't think its information that's relevant until
              they've decided they're interested.
        \_ It's not unusual to ask this.  (I find it grating as an applicant,
           but it's not unusual)
        \_ Call his former employer and ask.

        Like, e.g., "man perlfunc". Ok thx.
        \_ Sorry about that; I've installed them.  Please let me know
           if anything else seems to be missing.  --mconst
           \_ how 'bout "man sex" ?
