        He buried the lede:
        "The purchasing power of the typical worker has now fallen back to
         1998 levels, despite a 29% increase in productivity over that period."
        \_ It's just another sign of the ongoing third-worldization of the
           US.  Concentration of wealth in the hands of the elite, less
           social mobility, no middle class, decreased access to medicine
           and education.  Third-worldization.
           \_ *yawn*
           \_ Excellent ... - mr. burns
           \_ This only happens when the Republicans are in power. Hopefully
              not for too much longer.

8/15    Startups that get bought by Google die.
        \_ It looks like most of those were aquired for technology not the
           services themselves.  The sites died, but the tech lives on.

8/15    The Republican Campaign of Hate has just begun:
        \_ What further proof is needed that free speech is alive and well in
           America when hate-filled garbage can get printed?
        \_ Corsi isn't Republican:
           "Why I am not a Republican"
           \_ Uh-huh.
           \_ Right.
        \_ "just begun" ?
        \_ And the "liberal media" plays right along:

8/15    motd not getting laid guy here.  the girlfriend is playing
        WoW 3-5 hours a night and has fell in love with her WoW mentor.
        I guess he helps her run through levels?  Not sure how it works.
        She freely admits she has never seen him and he probably weighs
        500 pounds.
        \_ Why does that matter if she's not interested in sex?
           \_ She's just a roommate now.  She's not fucking him and she
              doesn't love him.  Dude, time for her to go, don'tcha
              \_ OP needs to decide if he is a loser and has to put
                 up with her, or if he can do better, in which case
                 start making other plans.
        \_ motd not getting laid guy here again.  the girlfriend has opened
           a blog for her WoW character.  I will update later if my life
           continues to spiral down into despair.
           \_ Dude, for your future psychological good, just dump her and
              either leave or kick her to the curb.  Who is paying the rent?
              \_ Wow, as a WoW obsessed blogger, I bet she's not a great
                 physical specimen either.  How about it MNGLG?  Is she
                 a woofer?

8/15    REX TILLERSON: Well, I think it has to do with an ability to understand
        just the size of our business. Everything we do, the numbers are very
        large. I saw someone characterize our profits the other day in terms of
        $1,400 in profit per second. Well, they also need to understand we paid
        $4,000 a second in taxes, and we spent $15,000 a second in cost. We
        spend $1 billion a day just running our business. So this is a business
        where large numbers are just characteristic of it.
        \_ "Things like providing lighter weight tires, tires that retain
           their pressure more efficiently, lighter weight plastics to go into
           vehicles to reduce vehicle weight" will help consumers use gas
           more efficiently, according to Tillerson.
           He must have not gotten the memo about the GOP talking points.
        \_ Why _do_ we blame the oil companies? They don't determine the price of oil,
           and the rising price is the reason for their huge profits.
        \_ Why _do_ we blame the oil companies? They don't determine the price

           \_ YMWTGoogle: Bush Administration Energy Task Force.
              \_ You'll have to be more specific. All I get are links about the
                 lawsuits. Secrecy and subsidies don't make the oil price rise.
                 Are you saying a sufficiently green energy policy would keep oil
                 prices down? Would have reduced our driving and China's thirst?

8/15    Watching bony little Asian girls winning the Olympics is really
        disgusting. Gymnastics in particular should be full bodied women
        with nice curves and boobs, like Jackie Johnson.        -dim #1 fan
                                    \- you know there is a heptathelete
                                     named Jacquelyn Johnson.
                                     Nicole Kidman or Britta Steffen:
        \_ Why don't you stick to watching women's beach volleyball, then.
           \_ Flat-chested.
              \_ DoA olympics edition.
                 \_ What's DoA?  -- clueless
                    \_ Dead or Alive. A fighting game featuring girls with
                       ridiculously large boobs in ridiculously revealing
           Well, in particular:

8/15    should i delete all my porn? s3 is kind of slow
        \_ You're an idiot if you keep porn on S3. The cost benefit
           for single user is almost nothing compared to a local
           SATA drive. Yes you should delete all your porn. Oh shit
           I've just been trolled
           \_ I'm thinking of dd'ing the porn partition. motd give me strength!
        \_ I put all my porn on my backup disk and now it seems to have died.
           At least I still have xhamster.
           \_ Hey, what else is there besides youporn and xhamster? Googling
              is kind of useless for this stuff.
