8/9     If you take a map of the bay area and plot out the location
        of all the girls I had sex with last week, you get a 5
        pointed star.  Does this mean I am secretly the anti Christ?

        \_ ruh roh, i see a warming trend plotted in excel!
           \_ You mean Open Office Calc.  :-)
              \_ Charting is one place where excel really kicks OOo's butt.
                 \_ Bah.  I just charted it in OO and it was just fine.  I
                    had way more charts and options and labels and whatnot
                    than I needed.
        \_ 1934?
           \_ Yep.  Top 10 years are:

              1954
              \_ What are the top 10 years in worldwide temps?
                 \_ We'll have to wait for the world data to include the US
                    correction.  ANd who knows what other errors there are.
                    \_ There are no errors in data that points to man made
                       global climate change.

8/9     My man pages are displaying incorrectly with \fBupdate\fR
        instead of displaying update in bold or whatever. Any ideas why?
        It happens on soda as well as other debian boxes I have.
        It happend using Terminal and xterm on my MacBook.
        \_ export TERM=vt100
           \_ I tried that. it doesn't make a difference.
              \_ export TERM=xterm
                  \_  I tried that also. problem persists. It also
                      happens from a knoppix linux desktop, so I think
                      the problem is the debian servers.

8/9     "It is very likely that any future 'September 11th' type of terrorist
        event in the United States may be facilitated, wittingly or
        unwittingly, by drug traffickers operating on both sides of the United
        States-Mexico border," the DEA report says.

8/10    I just found out Vang Rhames' vicious killer dog is a Fila, a
        very "protective" breed that has a history of killing strangers.
        Filas were bred in Brazil to protect farms and to track &
        kill Brazilian slaves & fugitives. I hate dogs.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fila_Brasileiro
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dangerous_Dogs_Act_1991
        \_ *laugh* Hi again Anti-Dog Troll.  Seriously, you've beat this horse
           to death.  You hate dogs, you hate dog people, you think dogs are
           filthy and stupid and smell and eat babies and target pregnant
           mothers and rob banks and suck people's souls while they sleep and
           are actively plotting to take over and/or destroy the world with
           Dogs of Mass Destruction (DMDs) since we all know dogs are the true
           master behind the Z.O.G.  Did I miss anything in your anti-dog
           rant?
           \_ yes cats rule.    -op
              \_ and for kicks I just read the first wiki article which you
                 flagrantly misquoted re: tracking and killing slaves.  if
                 you're going to troll at least don't misquote the links.
                 it dramatically diminishes the value of your troll.

        Fed accepts MBS bonds, kicking back $35 billion in cash to banks in
        short-term loans, delaying mark-to-market valuations on the bonds
        (encouraging mark-to-Fed accounting schemes).
        \_ http://www.csua.org/u/jbd (Economist's View)
           That is not really an accurate summary of what really happened.
           The MBS were all Agency backed and therefore gov't guaranteed
           in the first place. Secondly, they did not buy them, they
           accepted them as collatoral for a very short term (72 hour)
           loan.
           More discussion about it here:

            better source of economic explaination, too bad emarkp) -ausman

8/10    Hello my fellow free linux media stream player users.
        Does anyone have a good url to listen to NPR, over the net?
        thank you
        \_ I have this in my xmms playlist file for kqed:
           [playlist]
           numberofentries=1
           File1=http://205.234.249.144:80
           Title1=(#1 - 347/1000) KQED Public Radio
           Length1=-1
           Version=2
           \_ does KQED pump out all that NPR stuff?  like Fresh Air?
              \_ They do broadcast Fresh Air.  You should probably check their
                 website for other programs: http://kqed.org
                 Oh, it looks like they actually have mp3 stream playlist on their
                 website now, so you can use that instead of above.

8/10    This isn't new, but:
        http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2007/fit.nation/obesity.map
        It looks like obesity is a disease that began in the midwest
        and then took over the coasts.
        \_ Obesity is not a contagious disease.  Or even a disease.
