12/6    Funny, I heard about the beating, but I hadn't heard that he faked
        it until now...

12/7    This is very sad. Rest in peace James Kim, may heaven treat you better:,2933,235018,00.html
           The auto categorizer thinks this thread is about cars. And in
           fact, it is about cars. The Kims were killed because of their
           addiction to automobile. In fact, many Americans are already dead
           because of their addiction to automobile, from asthma, petrol
           chemicals, to car accidents due to drunken drivers and cell
           phone talkers, to wars for the control of the last drop of oil
           on earth. Fuck you all oil addicts for not seeing beyond
           problems you're creating for future generations to come.
           \_ If you truly want to start a flame war, you'll have to troll
              harder than that young padawan. -dans
              \_ Teach us, oh master. - jvarga
        \- you want a sad may-heaven-treat-you-better tragedy:
           am i comparing tragedies? you bet i am.
           it's kind of amazing the cnn reporter described the
           rescuers leaving "care packages". E_CATACHRESIS.
           \_ Uh, ok. Want to know what else is tragic and totally fucked
              up partha? That in order for an Asian man to be in
              American media, he needs to know kungfu, play
              a role as an engineer/scientist, or be dead. THAT is traffic.
              For crying out loud you're a fucking idiot partha.
              \- i dont understand what you are talking about
                 but the amount of breastbeating at place like:
                 from people who didnt know this dood, seems quite odd.
        \_ The Kims did spend the lats 10 years going to 'chill out' music
           parties in the woods with the elite dot commers of San Francisco,
           so a lot of the sad people at least know someone who was directly
           connected to the Kims.  its still kind of odd.
           \_ Sure SF has a lot of people who knew Kim.  But a lot of
              these Mourning Bloggers explicitly say "I dont know them."
              Or in some cases after the fact they "discover" things like
              "oh, it turned out, I did know him [sic] after all ... we
              were both at party X."  I think this is another case of
              (some) bloggers being desperate to find something to say.
              \_ So what, exactly, is the metric for desparation?  Does
                 something said in desparation have less merit than something
                 that isn't? -dans
                 \- google for "non accelerating rate of blogging" [NARB]
                    \_ Google for "total fucking waste of time":
                       - Your search - "non accelerating rate of blogging" -
                         did not match any documents.
                       - Searching without quotes yields lots of hits on the
                         non-accelerating inflation rate of unemployment.
                       - Searching for NARB provides unhelpful links to the
                         National Advertising Review Board.
