1/8     What language is this music in? PS the girl is very cute, SFW!
        \_ Sounds German
        \_ Looks like a SUPER HOT Bavarian girl, ja?
        \_ Ok that is a smart dog. By the way it says Slovenska on the
           description, maybe it's Slovenian.
2008/1/9-12 [Consumer/Camera] UID:48913 Activity:low
1/9     New digital camera capable of 60fps for still pictures and 1200fps
        for movies:
        Does that bring demise to Nikon and Canon DSLRs?
        \_ No. Cost vs. Performance curve says they'll all have their niches.
           \_ Is there price info for the Casio one?  I don't see it in the
              press release.  Thx.
        \_ How much of your photography requires 60fps?  -tom
           \_ People are greedy.
              \_ the thing is essentially a movie camera; with the possible
                 exception of sports photography, it will have no impact on
                 the SLR market.  -tom
           casio < nikon < canon
           \_ 26x as many references for Canon vs. Nikon?  I don't think Canon
              cameras are that much more popular than Nikon ones.
              \_ Canon owns the pocket-camera market.  -tom
        \_ Never buy a camera from people who make calculators and etc.
           \_ So no Casio or Canon.
2008/1/9-12 [Computer/Rants] UID:48914 Activity:nil
1/9     Gates to leave forever!
        \_ Is Steve Ballmer an improvement?
           \_ Wasn't he the chair-chucker?
              \_ Watch "developers,developers,developers" -- he's not going
                 to make 60 without a heart attack.
2008/1/9-12 [Uncategorized] UID:48915 Activity:nil
1/9     Bond/mtg insurers getting ass-raped
        MBI,ABK,MTG,PMI,RDN down -10 to -25% -- whoops, now recovering
2008/1/9-12 [Finance/Investment] UID:48916 Activity:nil
        Median GDP growth of +1.5% for 1H08 according to 62 economists
        Fuckers GS, MER, MS predict recession in 2008
        GS says recession "will be mild by historical standards", unemployment
        at 6.5% in 2009.
        \_ Co-incidentally, MS, MER and GS partners will all see reduced bonuses
           this year. The best possibility for them to regain their fat
           paychecks is to convince the Fed to lower interest rates.

1/8     Man this is the best primary EVER.
2008/1/9-12 [Transportation/PublicTransit] UID:48918 Activity:high
1/9     How walkable is your neighborhood?
        I got a 72, but what got listed for my local bookstore is actually the
        local porn store. hmm...
        \_ 89.  Ride Bike!  The biggest distance was for movie theaters,
           which is wrong; it missed the Piedmont Theater.  Other than that,
           nothing more than half a mile away. -tom
           \_ 89 for the Grand Lake Theater neighborhood as well. It missed
              that the Albertsons was replaced by a Trader Joe's. --erikred
        \_ This site is BIASED towards people who live near the city.
           It must have been written by yuppie urbanites. Nice troll.
        \_ Better if it included CRIME DATA. I mean, Detroit is pretty
           walkable to Pawn Shops, Cigar Stores, Hip Hop Heaven, and
           Aladin Bail Bonds, but do you seriously want to walk in it?
        \_ Porn store makes it more walkable by giving you a third leg.
        \_ Woo 15/100!  Richmond Marina Bay area.
        \_ It doesn't take into account bus stops and BART stations.  My
           in-law's place in Sunset District which is right next to a Muni
           streetcar terminal only gets 54.
           \_ Woo, 8/15! -- Marco
        \_ It doesn't take into account public transit stops.  My in-law's
           place in Sunset District which is right next to a Muni streetcar
           terminal only gets 54.
           \_ Maybe you need to go to instead of
              this biased site.
           \_ They should include transit stops, I agree and give points
              for being close to transit, just like they give points for
              being close to a coffee shop.
        \_ Site is lame.  They included junk like 'curves' and jamba juice as
           a plus for my area.  At least they included the nearby park but
           they totally missed the walking trails.  What is more walkable
           than a trail designed for it?
        \_ 86 for my little casa on the edge of Upper Noe. -ausman
        \_ 94 for living a few blocks from downtown SF in SOMA doosh doosh
        \_ 95 for my old apartment in downtown berkeley. gosh I shouldn't have
           moved -ERic
        \_ My SoCal suburb netted me a 58 and it missed a *lot* of
           businesses and totally neglected the mountain trails.
2008/1/9-12 [Science/GlobalWarming] UID:48919 Activity:low
1/9     Here's a nice pile of responses to the "global warming ended in 1998"
        \_ Bad troll!  Go to your room!
           \_ Why is this a troll? Does every bit of scientific evidence
              you don't agree with qualify as a "troll" in your book?
