9/10    Any review on ABC's 911 TV series?

9/11    Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old son died in his bed, days after Anna
        gave birth to a daughter.
        \_ who?
           \_ You're too young.
           \_ You're too young.   -- OP
              \_ no, I just don't waste time on idiotic pop culture.
                 \_ then why ask?
                 \_ I was just thinking that you recognize a different
                    generation of sex symbols.   -- OP
                    \_ "fat, blonde, and stupid is no way to go through life"
                    \_ Yeah, she's about as appealing as Tammy Faye Bakker
                       \_ Nah, I'd do ANS after only a month of sexual
                          deprivation.  It'd take a year for TFB to seem
                          \_ I'd have to be dead for TFB
                       \_ She looked great in To the Limit, Skyscraper, and
                          Anna Nicole Smith: Exposed.
        \_ hundreds of million of dollar, death of her young son... talking
           about ups and downs in her life!
                \_ Not to mention post-partum (sp?) depression, damn that's

        The "hail-mary" play that Dubya intends to spring this month and
        next:  Those who insist on rights for terrorist killers are preventing
        justice from being served for 9/11 widows, and will lead to mushroom
        clouds over major American cities.
        \_ I'm glad we are so cynical now. Nationalist Socialist Party would
           be alive and well.
        \_ "If you need proof that this administration's first priority is not
           a humane and effective counter-terror strategy, but a brutal,
           exploitative path to retaining power at any price, you just got
           it."   What we got was Andrew Sullivan going off on a conspiratorial
           rant based on, "I'm informed via troubled White House sources".
           What is the point of posting this?  "I'm informed by deeply
           troubled and unnamed motd sources that ...".  Just as good.
           \_ A cow would understand the difference.
              \_ I'm offended that your cow is offended.  --offended

9/11    Willie Nelson fights horse slaughter
        "[Horses] are part of the American heritage. I don't think its
        right that we kill them and eat them." Cows are part of American
        heritage too,you have a problem with eating THEM WIllie?
        \_ Yeah, so is wheat you friggin hippie. Of course we should eat
           them. Eat any and all of them. That's what your teeth are designed
           for you would-be-instinct-if-it-were-not-for-your-flesh-tearing-
           incisors hippie.
           \_ I'm not sure which is more amusing, the fact that pp completely
              misunderstood op, or that he made an amusing word substitution in
              the middle of this trollrant
        \_ Cows are part of the "get eaten" part of American heritage.  Whales,
           baby seals and kittens are not.  And yes, I'd like fries with that.

9/11    "Path to 9/11" tanks.
        'The movie was beaten soundly in the ratings by the regular-season
        debut of NBC's "Sunday Night Football," matching Peyton Manning of
        the Indianapolis Colts against younger brother Eli of the New York
        \_ It's a shame we'll never know how it would have done before removing
           every reference to Lewinsky.
        \_ See the clips ABC removed because of Clinton's pressure:
           (You don't have to read the commentary if you don't want to.)
        \_ I think this whole episode was just a threat by Clinton's
           jew handlers to keep Hillary and Bill in line.

9/11    Mail broken again?
        \_ Sure seems like it.  Can someone please explain why there is so
           much problem with mail delivery.  I mean it's been working fine
           for the last 10 years.  What has changed that is causing it not
           to work?  Is it every going to be fixed?
           \_ Is this only affecting incoming mail, or also outgoing mail?
           \_ Trn hasn't worked since the upgrade also, but I haven't
              complained yet. It works, but some message cause it to
              freeze up. This never happened before the OS update.
            \_ So, will soda eventually return back to normal after 5
            \_ So, will soda eventually return back to normal after
               months of illness, or will this illness only get worse,
               leading to soda's eventual demise?
               \_ The invisible hand will fix it.
                  \_ No, the invisible hand theory says people will be so
                     pissed off at csua's service that people will switch
                     to other services without external intervention. Let's
                     say the problem is csua. People will get so fed up that
                     most of them will, in time, switch to gmail or yahoo
                     mail, and csua will eventually cease to exist since
                     people will no longer care about it. The invisible hand
                     doesn't "fix" an existing problem, it'll just makes the
                     problem go away (csua). Free market's pretty
                     efficient eh?
               \_ Send in more troops. Er... Beg current troops to stay.

        Is it just me or is Dubya totally fucking nuts?  No, it's not
        necessarily what he's saying, but his body language when talking with
        Matt Lauer.

9/11    This happened during WW2 on September 12th.  It illusrated what kind
        of justice American unleash upon otherwise professional German
        \_ Cool!  Chicom Troll is back, I was getting worried.  -John
        \_ I remember watching something on the History Channel about some WWII
           German ships trying to attack a British ship which was rescuing
           German sailors from a German boat it had sunk earlier, forcing the
           British ship to stop the rescue operation, abandon the remaining
           Germans still in water, and fled the scene.  These things are just
           facts of warfare.  After the war was over, the British sailors and
           the rescued German sailors on that ship had regular reunions
           together in memory of the event.
           My impression from TV and movies are that the western militaries
           My impression from TV and movies is that the western militaries
           of both the Axis and the Allies were highly professiona.  (The
           Japanese were probably not.  Didn't know about the other Asian
           ones.)  I was most touched by a scene in the last episode of the
           ones.)  I was most touched by a scene in the last episode of
           Band of Brothers, which, after Germany surrendered, the German
           officer drew his career-long side arm and offered to the American
           officer drew his career-long sidearm and offered to the American
           officer as a sovenior, saying "it's better than letting it sit on
           some clark's desk collecting dust".  In response the American offer
           got up from his chair-rocking lay-back posture to standing-up in
           full-alert, saying "you can keep you side arm, officer."  Then they
           full-alert, saying "you can keep you sidearm, officer."  Then they
           \_ The Japanese army was highly professional, but adhered to
              different "rules" of war, like Germans in Russia.  In any case,
              there are several examples of alleged Allied war crimes (check
              wikipedia for a fun shitfight on the topic), many of which
              weren't prosecuted because they sort of went under in the
              general confusion, or it was felt the end justified the means.
              The Laconia incident, while real, is a hilarious example of
              ChiCom troll's ninja troll-fu, though, in the context of "ha ha
              you puny American, you think you so good, well you do xyz <dig
              up random unconnected irrelevant obscure badness>."  -John
              \_ japanphile. you are not alone.
                 \_ If I don't think someone's a monster, I'm a
                    someonephile? Your logic is broke.
