1/22    I wanna work on Wall Street!  I can levitate the markets through
        November/December to collect my phat bonus, and then let everything
        go into the shitter in Jan, and not go to jail!  Yay!
        \_ And then go get a job with the Administration after I am canned...
        \_ You don't really believe that BS do you?
           \_ the part about levitating markets, being able to collect
              phat bonuses, or not going to jail?
              \_ That they can move the markets.

1/22    Google Exodus Beginning?
        Google is getting too big: Time to do something about it
        Is There Life after Google?
        Kevin Fox Leaves Google
        \_ Beginning?  It started six months ago. -dans
           \_ urlP?
              \_ Anecdotal.  Many rank-and-file googlers I know left in the
                 last six months.  May be subject to sampling errors. YMMV -dans
                 \_ Can you give me names? I'd like to contact them.

1/22    Big Yahoo Layoffs Coming Soon:
        \_ 700 employees is 6%.  2,000 employees is 1 out of 6.  Okay.
           Then again, if I were running a company, I'd plan for the latter,
           do the former, and trim toward 1/6 as circumstances warrant.
           Repeat plan if things suck next year.

1/22    This Clinton sleeping thing seems fine to me. The speech he's listening
        to here appears 100% content-free.

1/22    Fred Thompson drops out
        \_ Damn.  Can't see his busty wife's pics anymore.
        \_ Damn.  Can't see his busty wife anymore.
           \_ Mrs. Jeri "Minnesota Tits" Thompson, the Future First Lady and
              The First Twins, "Stacey" and "Becca."
              \_ Do the First Twins "drop out" also?

1/22    Behold! The world's largest swimming pool:
        Visible from space!               
        \_ It contains salt water and it's right next to the sea.  What's the
           point of the swimming pool again?
           \_ I had precisely the same question. Maybe they're controlling the
              temperature, or just the fact that you can't get swept out to sea
              is a selling point? -op
              \_ SHARK!  (also, maybe jellyfish and other nasties)
              \_ How much does it cost to heat a pool of that size?
           \_ theoretically theyre cleaning it up a bit, not letting ni all the
              random sea life.
              \_ The ocean in Chile is COLD.

1/22    Dear swami, today's interest rate has gone low low low and my
        wife is whining to get a house. Is now a good time?
        \_ you in santa clara county?
        \_ Swami says that keeping your wife happy is more important than
           trying to buy at the bottom of the market. If you can find a
           home that you can afford with a 30 year fixed rate mortgage
           in a place you like and can imagine staying in for a long time,
           go ahead and buy now. -GS

1/22    Study: Bush, officials made false statements prior to war
        In other news, sky still blue!
        \_ 935 false statements in two years is a lot of false statements, even
           for a President.
