        Wear an "I Support the Economy" sticker and win free cash in a New
        York shopping mall!  Free parking thru May!
        \_ Reminds me of Ford's "Whip Inflation Now" buttons.

2/19    I'm looking for a sweater I saw recently on someone...
        it had a logo that looked like the AT-ATs from starwars,
        but over a picture of the Oakland docks.  Any idea?
        Where I can find this?
        \_ Are you talking about "The Town" shirts like the ones here
           or here
        \_ The artist sells there wares at the Temescal farmer's market on
        \_ The artist sells their wares at the Temescal farmer's market on
           Sundays.  -scottyg
        \_ I bought a t-shirt from the maker at the Telegraph street fair
           near campus in Berkeley in December.  The word "girl" appears
           in his business title.  I have a sticker for his website at home,
           and I'll look for it tonight. --peterl

        \_ get a partner who's over 6 foot 2 with enormous breasts.
           \_ Can't.  I am five foot 4 computer dork
              \_ so get a fat chick
                 \_ or a fat paycheck

2/19    I just reread a copy of Cryptonomicon I got used.  It's
        not so bad, it's aged well.

2/19    Castro is such a quitter!
        \_ Well, at least his internal organs are.
        \_ I wonder why he just doesn't push on at least until
           after this cycle of US elections.
        \_ "Many observers believe Fidel Castro will either be replaced by his
            brother Raul, or by his idiot son, Fidel W. Castro." -- Letterman
            \_ Ha ha!
2008/2/19-22 [Politics/Foreign/MiddleEast/Iraq] UID:49187 Activity:kinda low
2/19    Question to all the motd guys who think we should pull out of Iraq
        ASAP, what do you think we should do about Kurdistan?
        \_ Of two minds on this. If we're going to continue the policy of
           letting the Turks bomb the PKK, we might as well just pull out.
           If not, then finding a replacement UN force to sit in Kurdistan
           should be a greater priority than finding the same for Baghdad.
           \_ Huh?  It seemed to me that the Kurdistan govt. had more-or-less
              agreed to the PKK bombing.  Allowing that and allowing full-
              scale invasion (what would probably happen if we leave, from
              1 enemy or another) seem totally different to me.
              \_ Hence the call for a UN force to sit in Kurdistan and
                 prevent Turkey from annexing it.
                 \_ How do you figure a UN force is capable of any such thing?
                    When Turkey moves 50k guys into the region, the 500 UN
                    guys are going to do what exactly?
                    \_ Document it. Maybe. The UN is powerless and
                       ineffective and probably should be dissolved.
                    \_ Provide an International Consensus authorizing the US
                       to move in to protect Kurdistan, thereby paving a
                       legitimate basis for establishing a base in
                       the then-viable independent Kurdistan. It's a win-win:
                       we get our base, the Kurds get their state, and the
                       world loves us.
        \_ Let the Invisible Hand take care of it.

2/19    Why are there so many gay people on the Oxygen Channel? O!
        \_ Because gay (homosexual male) people like the same things as
           straight women?
           \_ No, because many straight women think all gay people are
              cute and neutered like the guys in Will and Grace (who you
              will notice never actually have sex, they just talk about it
              a lot.)
              \_ Very much untrue. I'm surprised the gay community hasn't
                 launched attacks on stereotyping them.

2/19    What's been your experience with Maven? Our ant files and build scripts have
        gotten out of hand. However, we hear Maven's files are just as convoluted,
        and difficult to adjust/expand/etc.
