2/25    Alternative theory on mass extinctions of mega fauna in North America:
        http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?articleID=0004839D-C6AC-1CDA-B4A8809EC588EEDF&pageNumber=1&catID=4
        \_ I'm having trouble getting the pages.  We exterminated native
           americans in large part because of disease.  Is it fair to say
           this article says that we wiped out megafauna by introducing
           disease, too?
           \_ If by "we" you mean humans from Asia 11k years ago, yes.

2/27    Compare Gore's hypocrisy to Bush's reality:
        http://www.plentymag.com/thecurrent/2007/02/whats_red_white_blueand_green.php
        \_ The difference here, you see, is that Bush is evil.
           \_ No, the difference is that Bush reneged on promises.
              Note the house was being built leading up to the 2000
              elections, back when he said he would cut carbon emissions.
              That's great that the ranch house uses green techniques,
              but his record betrays the house's campaign stunt nature.
              \_ Which still means that Bush's house is far more green than
                 Gore's.

2/27    anyone know a free tool to rip an mp3 out of a flash swf file?
        \_ Don't know about this, but I hear the dirty secret of the flash mp3
           player is that it doesn't actually stream, it downloads files to a
           temporary directory and plays them.  Not sure if this helps for swf
           files... -dans

2/27    "Why I Hate Blacks"
        http://preview.tinyurl.com/2r6vqc (Asian Week)
        \_ Oooookayyyy...
           \_ Funny stuff.  Even funnier when you start googling for
              author and discover he's a crazy person, people hate him
              so much they create epic poems about how much they hate him,
              AND he's a furry.
              \_ http://blogs.ign.com/Hil-IGN/2006/09/01/29782
                 Oh man this is going to crack me up all week.
        \_ From the article:
           "Eng wrote about experiencing racism as an Asian American student
           at New York University after he "expressed my negative views on
           America, religion and African Americans."  Bwahaha. Imagine,
           Eng: Blacks are all so stupid/evil.
           Other: What?  You dick!
           Eng: What's your problem, you racist or something?  I'm a genius!

                 \_ Wow, so you have one piece of data that supports your
                    argument that conservatives R00L, liburals DR00L!  It must
                    be true!  AWESOME. -dans
        \_ You tree huggers have to realize that your celebrity allies
           fly around in private jets, drive exclusive limos to awards
           shows, all the while proclaiming tooting the same message.
           \_ Point of information as you spew bile: alg0r flies Coach.
              \_ I'm sure he flew coach to and from Nam as the only
                 military photographer with his own bodyguard.
