7/31    Why is everyone freaking out about Murdoch buying the WSJ? Are they
        afraid it's going to become a rightwing corporate mouthpiece (lol)
        \_ Yeah, actually I am.  The WSJ NEWS reporting is excellent.
           the WSJ EDITORIAL PAGES are a bunch of 100 percent free market
           loons.  It's an easy distinction.

7/31    Hey Michelle Malkin readers (you know who you are) I saw your girl
        walking around SOMA this morning. She is 1/3 smaller in person.
        Does she live in The City or something? -ausman
        \_ Is there a Fox affiliate in SF?  Maybe she's taping an interview?
           \_ Your fucking dog puppy weaning bullshit got boring?
        \_ She is 1/3 smaller comared to what? Your big screen TV?  What does
        \_ She is 1/3 smaller compared to what? Your big screen TV?  What does
           this mean?
           \_ When she does that thing with the ping pong balls it is even
              more impressive.
           \_ For the clue impaired this means she is short.
           \_ It means she is short.
        \_ For the acronym challenged, what's SOMA?
           \_ Shit On My Adidas, which is what happens when you walk around
              there enough.
           \_ South Of Market.
        \_ I'm about to move to SOMA, Folsom between 7th and 8th.  Are there
           any ultra-scary places to avoid there like 6th street?
           \_ The whole area right next to the Hall of Justice (the jail)
              is pretty sketchy. Not as bad as 6th Street though.

7/31    the dirty bomb is about to hit.  who do you call and tell
        them that you love them?
        \_ Report the bomber's email to us. We'll spam him to death
           before he even has a chance to set off the bomb.
        \_ Call ed.  He's the standard.
        \_ Dirty bomb?  Just seal the circulation system and windows or run
           away.  It's not a neutron bomb, sheesh.
        \_ Yermom.
        \_ dirty bomb is unlikely to kill injure or damage in an area larger
           than a few square blocks.  i hop on the next bart train.

7/31    Go vegetarian to save money - MSN Money:
        \_ I just spent $204 on a dinner for two at Millenium.  I guess I'm
           eating the wrong vegetarian fair.
           \_ Don't eat a fair next time
           \_ And what, half that was wine, plus 15-20% was tip?
        \_ Does that include the huge carbon footprint caused by shipping in
           interesting veggie items from all over the world?
           \_ Be smart, eat what's in season.  It's cheaper, it gives you
              interesting variety, and the food tastes better.
           \_ veggies have much less carbon footprint than beef.  -tom
              \_ Oh great, veggies are less evil.  How about taking the
                 health of our only planet seriously and stop playing the
                 "I'm less evil than you so what I'm doing is ok!" game, huh?
                 \_ I don't think it's about people feeling "okay," but
                    about making a conscious effort to do less damage to the
                    environment. We've gotten to where we are because we didn't
                    pay attention to what industrialism and advancement of
                    human kind has gotten ourselves into. Now people eat more
                    meat because they can be bought "cheap," and we have to
                    subsidize the farmers if we want non-meat stuff. Human
                                \_ say what?  where'd you get the idea that
                                   farmers are subsidized for the purpose
                                   of creating non-meat food items?
                    actually are what we consider locusts to be. We devour
                    resources beyond what eco-systems can handle. While less
                    evil is NOT "okay," it's still a lesser of the two evil.
                    \_ I think it is better to live in harmony with the planet
                       than to destroy it a bit slower.  I see no point in
                       that.  So it takes 100 years instead of 50 to make the
                       planet unlivable, so what?
                 \_ Who's playing that game?  I also think local sourcing is
                    important.  It's just silly to talk about the carbon
                    footprint of veggies as being bad relative to meat.  -tom
                    \_ Only you were talking about that strawman.  The rest of
                       us were talking by then about how importing your veggies
                       from all over the world at all times of year is very
                       hypocritical if you're doing it to save the planet.
                       \_ A lot of veggies can be imported by slow frieght.
                          That's actually amazingly efficient in large
                          quantities.  Yes it isn't as good as local; yes
                          there is a bigger carbon footprint, but it's still
                          way less than cheap factory farmed meat.  Probably
                          orders of magnitudes less.  It's the air freight
                          veggies that are a disgusting waste of fossil fuels.
                       \_ Uh, you're the one setting up the straw man.
                          Did anyone defend importing veggies from all
                          over the world?  -tom
                          \_ You're just pulling my leg now, right?  Did you
                             even read the Op or the article or anything or
                             just came around looking for another motd ring
                             around the rosie rhetorical dance?  Whatever.
                             Have the last word to say whatever.  I'm not going
                             to waste more time or precious bits on this.
                             \_ The article talks about saving by focusing on
                                seasonal/local produce.  You are the only
                                person to have brought up importation.  Your
                                troll fu sucks. --scotsman
                                \_ Actually his troll fu is mighty, since he
                                   started a huge flamewar over nothing but
                                   his inability to read and comprehend

7/31    After 911, the government gains surveilance power to eavesdrop.
        What are some things they actively monitor on these days?
        USPS mail? Email? Do they have complete access to YahooMail/Gmail?
        What about my history of library checkouts? Are credit card
        companies cooperating fully to expose our spending patterns?
        \_ They can subpoena your email provider
        What about my history of library checkouts?
        \_ They may request these
        Are credit card
        companies cooperating fully to expose our spending patterns?
        \_ It is all classified because in a Democracy, your government
           has full authority to keep track of what you are doing and you
           have no right to know what they are doing with your tax dollars.
           \_ We're actually a democratic republic but ok.
              \_ Hi, Mr. Pedantic?  It's your country calling.  They'd like
                 you to wake up now.  Ok thx.
                 \_ It isn't pedantic.  It is an important difference, but ok
                    if you want to keep thinking that.

7/31    Lust trumps love when it comes to having sex
        \_ I knew this all along. Girls just want to have fun.
           \_ The motd taught me that women don't want to have sex.  I'm soooo
              confused now.  Oh please help me Motd Girl Gods!
              \_ By the way, this is the reason that they have sex but it
                 doesn't say anything about frequency or enjoyment of the act.
              \_ They just don't want sex with me.
              \_ They say they want to have sex. They may even act like it
                 if it helps them land a man. However, they do not
              \_ They say they want to have sex. They may even act like they
                 like it if it helps them land a man. However, they do not
                 actually like it and would be just happy if they never
                 had sex again. Witness how lesbians progress in
                 1. Date
                 2. Move in together
                 3. Get a dog
                 4. Have sex
                 \_ in addition to being unable to get laid, you apparently
                    have never met an actual lesbian either.
                    \_ I'm sure you're an expert on lesbians and also
                       think that the actions of actors on "Sex in the City"
                       are representative of reality. Women like sex so
                       much that some even fake the Big O to get it over with.
                       Yes, I'm sure they can't wait for more. Give them
                       a Black Amex card and never touch them again and
                       they'll be happy as shit. You know which women love
                       sex? Psychos, traumatized women, and fat chicks.
                       I'm sure most of your experience is in the latter
                       category. Not that they like the act itself either,
                       but it's a big ego boost for them that someone is
                       actually interested in them.
                       \_ project your issues much?
                          \_ Fucked a lot of fat chicks, huh?
                       \_ Hey BDG is that you? I have probably dated more
                          women than you and in any case I have dated many.
                          And I can say that while there is a whiff of truth in
                          what you say, I have known many women who enjoyed
                          sex who were good looking, not crazy and not
                          traumatized. I even married one. I am sorry that your
                          experience has been otherwise.
                          \_ The key is that women who like sex and aren't
                             a big bundle of issues are way out of BDG's
                             league.  Women can smell that kind of misogyny
                             from a mile off, and the ones with their heads
                             screwed on straight know to stay the fuck away
                             from that kind of crap.  The sane like to fuck
                             the sane.  Crazy that.  (Note, this also is the
                             reason stupid frat guys think the crazy ones are
                             the best in bed.)
                             \_ So in a nutshell what you are saying is
                                that it's hard to date the 2% of sane
                                women who enjoy sex. I would agree with
                                that. It would be a lot easier if, say,
                                90% of sane women enjoyed sex.
                                \_ No I'm saying that by being a creep you've
                                   limited youtself to the bottom 10%, but if
                                   it makes you feel better you can pretend
                                   that that is a larger chunk of the female
                                   \_ Bottom 10%. Haha! What a laugh! You
                                      base this on what exactly?
                                         \_ It's not just me. Look at how
                                            many married men are unhappy with
                                            their sex lives. Look at how
                                            many women say they aren't
                                            really into sex. I've heard
                                            two ex-wives (neither mine)
                                            say "I don't care if I ever
                                            have sex again" and also
                                            heard women say that their
                                            husbands wanted sex too often.
                                            Face it: sex isn't a big deal
                                            husbands want sex too often.
                                            Face it: Sex isn't a big deal
                                            to most women like it is to
                                            men. Reason: It's not that
                                            interesting to them.
                                            \_ Married men tend to be happier
                                               with their sex lives than single
                                               men. No one is arguing that women
                                               want to have sex as often as men
                                               do, we just object to your
                                               characterization of every woman
                                               who enjoys sex as psycho. I
                                               would like to have sex with my
                                               wife every day, but she does not
                                               want to have it that often. That
                                               does not mean she is frigid or
                                               that I am unhappy.
                                               "Eighty-three percent of men
                                                enjoy sex "a great deal"; that
                                                falls to 59 percent of women. "
                                               I don't think anyone would
                                               dispute that men tend to have
                                               higher sex drives than women.
                                               I wish I could have sex every

7/31    What's the deal with chicks and flipflops? It is barely okay to
        wear flipflops to the mall. Flipflops to work is lame and
        flipflops paired with an otherwise nice outfit is even more lame.
        Can women not afford shoes or sandals anymore? Plus, they are
        so bad for your feet! I have been watching out for flipflops
        lately (no I do not have a foot fetish) and the problem is
