4/20 (
        Surprise! The suburbs are BETTER for your social life!
        \_ "...the apparent tendency of interaction-prone individuals to
            locate in dense neighborhoods leads to a positive correlation
            between density and interaction." What a bullshit study. They
            admit that more social people tend to live in high density
            living situations and then "correct" for this tendency to
            come up with the opposite conclusion.
            \_ I agree with what you are saying, but on the other hand,
               the idea is to look at only the effects of the neighborhood
               on social interaction. So you *have* to correct for the
               individuals. It's not such a useful result because of that,
               but it would indicate that the interaction-prone
               individuals may be making a mistake if the intent is to
               maximize social interaction. They would all be better off
               moving to the 'burbs.
               \_ No one knows which correction factor to use. The only
                  way you could actually test for this is to do a controlled
                  study, which human subjects usually object to.

4/20    Liberals .. it's too obvious..
        Liberals want the conservatives to stand next to a ditch and
        get gunned down. They want to be the one that guns down pro
        gunners and conservatives! That's what this is all really about...
        only way liberals can win is to take away all the
        guns.. get control of the army and then kill off
        all the conservatives... that's your plan.. we know..
        That's why there is the 2nd amemdment. To prevent
        mentally disordered liberals who would have no balls otherwise
        be able to control the masses by removing guns and then
        using the military in the same facist way Hitler did to
        exterminate the jews. That's why the 2nd amendment exists.
        \_ how is this interesting?  did you even write this?
        \_ ^Liberals^Statists
        \_ I thought it was funny I could add comments to the motd gun
           threads that I cut and pasted from random blogs and people
           would reply, eventhough the comments really didnt have much
           to do with the previous discussion.
        \_ Isn't this something that the VT shooter posted before he
           went ballistic? Should I be nervous?
           \_ Only when Hillary wins in 2008, then we should all be nervous
              \_ Worried about Hillary, worred about the gun nuts or
                 worried about both?

4/21    I'm in the middle of reading Max Brooks' World War Z, and while I am,
        in this real world that we live in, a believer in gun control (and
        even, given the right circumstances, gun elimination), this book makes
        me want to purchase and secure a reasonable firearm and ammo. Just
        \_ ob "I was just in the middle of reading mein kampf, and ..."
           \_ "...and this book makes me want to purchase a firearm and
               shoot a bunch of nazis"? 'Cos that's what I'm getting here.

4/21    NASA employee gets mediocre performance review, buys legal gun,
        shoots co-worker.  Just to make the point.
        \_ That guns don't kill people, people do?
           \_ Cancer doesn't kill people, cancer cells do!
           \_ Wars don't kill people.
