10/19   Awesome.  Now Harry Reid is claiming credit for raising money for
        children by sending the smear letter to Rush Limbaugh.
        (transcript at NRO of senate minutes)
        \_ I read that off LGF too, but I don't really agree with that
           interpretation.  It doesn't read to me like he's taking credit
           for it, except the last line, which could be read multiple ways.
           \_ "Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this
              nature. And, for the cause, madam president, it is extremely
              good."  We?  We?!?
        \_ So what if he is?  Frankly I think that's genius. -dans
           \_ Errr... ok.  Taking credit for someone else's good idea hardly
              takes genius.
              \_ Actually I was suggesting that he may actually have
                 manipulated $KNEE_JERK_RIGHT_WING_MOUTHPIECE into this.  I
                 mean, seriously, their buttons are pretty easy to push.  But
                 then I'm evil so I don't think that's a ridiculous idea.
                      \_ Merely stupid.
                 Maybe you do.  Let's split the difference. -dans
                 \_ Yeah, that's a ridiculous idea.  Well, I've learned that
                    "dans <heart> Harry Reid."
                 \_ You think he manipulated Rush into raising money for
                    charity?  Yeah, that's a pretty ridiculous idea.
                 \_ dans <hearts> Harry Reid!
                    \_ Harry Reid can go fuck a goat.  But I do think it's
                    \_ Harry Reid can go fuck a dans.  But I do think it's
                                                \_ A well done modification.
                                                   I o7 (salute) you. -dans
                       easy to manipulate knee-jerk, reactionary talking
                       heads, and I think it would be awesome if it happened
                       more.  I'm not saying that's what happened here, I'm
                       merely saying it's in the realm of possibilitty. -dans
                       merely saying it's in the realm of possibility. -dans
                       \_ It isn't even in the realm of possibilty.  Sorry.
                          Reid and 40 other Dem Senators did not sit down and
                          write a threat letter based on a lie to a radio show
                          host's syndicator with the hope of over $4m dollars
                          (half of it from the radio show host) going to a
                          charity where the radio show host is a board member.
                          \_ In the realm of possibility !=
                             likely !=
                             remotely likely
                             Merely possible.  Get over yourself oh holy arbiter
                             of what is. -dans
                             \_ I love it when people try to justify their
                                stupid statements by lowering the threshold of
                                "possible" to ridiculously low levels.  "Hey
                                a perpetual motion machine is within the
                                realm of possibility, we might discover new
                                physics!"  Yeah, ok, whatever. -!pp
                                \_ Now, perpetual motion machine violates the
                                   laws of thermodynamics.  Apples and orange
                                   my boy.  Suggesting that politicians might
                                   be manipulative and machiavellian is a far
                                   smaller leap than suggesting we oopsed and
                                   misunderstood thermodynamics for the last
                                   few hundred years. -dans
                                   \_ No, you're suggesting something with
                                      the same odds as a working perpetual
                                      motion machine being built.  The odds
                                      that Harry+40 wrote their lying smear
                                      letter with the hope/intent that Rush
                                      and his fans would turn it into a $4m
                                      charity event is zero.  Please let this
                                      thread die.  You're convincing no one.
        \_ That's a doggone lame thing to do.

10/19   Was the network down earlier? I couldn't check my emails on
        soda for a while.
        \_ there were some problems with the eecs network earlier this
           morning. various eecs routes were flapping at the border between
           the campus network and the eecs network. -erikk

10/19   Is it no longer popular to date oriental girls? What's the latest
        trend, Jewish women? How do I go about dating Jewish women?

10/19   List ONE controversial topic South Park hasn't touched but
        you'd like to see:
        \_ it's been done. Cartman's mom wanted to abort Cartman, so she gets

10/19   Watson's brilliant, simply brilliant. Just as Darwin did not want to
        publish his theory of evolution until he was almost dead, old
        Watson comes out of the closet and says something controversial.
        Moral of the story: if you have a controversial theory that
        you're absolutely convinced is a correct one, say it right before
        you die. Afterall, no one says anything bad at your eulogy.
        \- A good line:
           "In lapidary inscriptions a man is not upon oath." --SJOHNSON
        \_ slight difference, in that Darwin spent many years researching and
           providing proof for his theory, while Watson just had verbal
        \_ What does this have to do with Watson's german shepherd anyway?

10/19   I don't particularly like dogs.  Nope, not poodles, labs, or any other
        dog.  Will this get deleted?
        \_ How can you not like dogs?  They're very tasty when properly
           \_ Really, I found mine bland.  Perhaps it wasn't prepared
        \_ No, because trolls last the longest on the motd.  I give this one
           at least until Monday COB.
        \_ Ever tried poodle?
           \_ Grows too slowly, too skinny, too high maintenance. Not a
              good livestock to keep. Chow Chows are superier as livestocks.
              Fast growth, low maintenance, moderately tender meat and
              is the #1 choice of dog meat lovers.
