5/1     "Arctic ice cap melting 30 years ahead of forecast"
        "The IPCC report was very careful, very thorough and cautious, so they

        might occur,"

5/1     I just saw the latest South Park and it is totally hilarious. Is
        it really true that Santa Monica, Venice, and Brentwood are the

              \_ A friend of mine once got a survey from the city of SM at work,
                 and was told that SM 'requires 100% survey participation.'  It
                 was not clear what would happen if a survey was not filled out,
                 but the insinuations were ominous!

5/1     "Arctic ice cap melting 30 years ahead of forecast"
        "Scambos and co-authors of the study, ...... used setellite data and
        visual confirmation of Arctic ice to reach their conclusions, a far
        different picture than that obtained from computer models used by the
        scientists of the intergovernmental panel."

5/1     Oops, Tenet's a big fat liar.  He claims that he ran into Perle the day
        after 9/11 and Perle said that Iraq had to pay.  Problem is, Perle was
        out of the country and couldn't get back until 9/15
        \_ Do you think Perle didn't say that?
           Is Tenet a liar and Gonzales not?
           Is Tenet a liar and Gonzales not? -scotsman
           \_ There's a difference between saying "Iraq has to pay for what
              happened yesterday" and saying "there are links between OBL and
              SH".  Oh, and Gonzales is either a liar or an incompetent. -op
              \_ So, again, you don't think "Iraq has to pay for this" or
                 something very close came out of Perle's mouth in Tenet's
                 Also, as those "links" were included in the authorization
                 to attack Iraq, do you honestly think you can call that a
                 distinction with a difference?
                 Let's look at the full transcript.
                   Even if we cannot prove to the standards that we enjoy
                   in our own civil society that they were involved. We
                   do know, for example, that Saddam Hussein has ties
                   to Osama bin Laden. That can be documented.

                   So, on the theory, which seems to be a valid one,
                   that if you support terrorists and they then commit
                   atrocities against Americans, you are responsible.

                   Unless we hold those countries responsible, we will
                   be chasing terrorists without significant effect.
                 So.. Iraq is responsible, and we must hold them responsible.
                 Still think there's a difference? -scotsman
                 \_ Not to mention that Perle was a signatory to the PNAC
                    letter saying we should attack Iraq back in January 1998.
                    (Note that letter doesn't mention bin Laden or terrorism:
                    9/11 was just a convenient excuse to do what they wanted
                    to do anyway).  -tom

5/1     I haven't had sex with my girlfriend since February.
        Today I found a HUGE and I mean HUGE dildo in the pile
        of clean clothes next to her bed.  Jesus Christ I think
        it must be named Thor.
        \_ she wants to use it on you.
        \_ It wasn't a HUGE dildo.  It was me whom your gf was hiding under
           that pile of clean clothes.  j/k.
