11/6    Dow 2000 here we come!
        \_ The three TIE fighters move in on Luke. As Vader's center fighter
           unleashes a volley of laserfire, one of the TIE ships at his side is
           hit and explodes into flame. The two remaining ships continue to
           move in.
        \_ I am deeply insulted.  You delete my Star Wars quotes but leave up
           this trash?
           \_ it's really hard sticking the entire Star Wars script in my
              sed function.

11/6    I just found out the challah we eat is made by Contenental
        Food in Southern California, hand rolled by a bunch of Mexicans.
        Food for thought. mageil harah!
        \_ And why is this interesting?
           \_ it's interesting because someone needs to bless it. it's
              interesting if you actually eat challah.
              \_ So... it's not interesting at all -a jewish sodan
              \_ challah's pretty decent with cheese and sausage fondue.

11/6    "Palin was unaware that Africa was a continent, arguing that South
        Africa was simply a region of the larger country of Africa."
        Glad that she didnt' become VP.
        \_ Glad that rumor is a pile of shit.
           \_ Glad people voting for her piece of shit lost.
           \_ s/rumor/on the record fact/g
           Palin fires back, calling her critics "jerks."

11/6    Bawahaha.  Black woman in Chicago randomly slaps copy saying. "White
        [expletive], [expletive] McCain--you white police can't do nothing
        anymore."  She was arrested of course.
        \_ whoever posted this... RACIST!
           \_ Stop labeling the wrong people.
        \_ Thanks for filling my day with a little more stupid.
        \_ we are all post racial now.
        \_ Further proof that even a good candidate can't cure the stupid.

11/6    Damn funny pictures:
        \_ Most of them are good.  Too many of them using the sun, though.  #3
           is my favorite.  What's the event in #15 (the one with Chinese
           characters at the backdrop)?
        \_ keywords: sun, penis, nature pictures with human poses. Humor, funny.
           pictures taken at the right angle.

11/6    "Palin's return? Russian parliament may allow it" - Yahoo! News:
        I swear that's the headline I glanced.  Just two characters off.
        \_ He can see her house from Russia!
        \_ Can we rename Wasilla to "Palingrad"

11/6    Obama to bring back slavery:
        \_ u mean communism
           \_ Yeah, I like Communism. Capitalism didn't work too well
              under GWB.
              \_ I thought GWB was a neocon and that neocon = socialism + war
              \_ how are you going to spend your 100 hours ? scraping gum?
        \_ say bye to the 13th amendment - Executive Order on the way

        KKK leader claims Obama will be assassinated.
        \_ I thought KKK endorsed Obama in light of Hillary's bid. :-)

11/6    Has anyone been monitoring Fox News? What has O'Reiley and
        Sean Hannity been saying about the election? Have they begun
        trashing Obama yet?
2008/11/6-13 [Politics/Domestic/Gay, Politics/Domestic/California] UID:51863 Activity:moderate
11/6    Does anyone know why most of the coastal counties are anti prop 8
        and most of the inland counties are for prop 8?
        \_ Because people who live near the coast tend to be more wealthy
           and worldly, while people stuck inland tend to be landlocked
           \_ ^hick^yokel
           \_ racist! eh, yokelist!
           \_ Um, you did see that 70% blacks voted yes on 8? Not even
              Christians voted yes on it at that high of a rate.
              \_ Blacks have a tendency to exhibit hick-like behavior.
                 \_ racist
        \_ The big cities are coastal.  Urban centers tend to be more lefty.
           Besides, if you were to guess where gay people lived, wouldn't SF
           and LA be high up on your list?
           \_ No, just SF. LA's only gay spot is N Hollywood, which is
              nothing compared to SF. As for the rest like Orange County,
              it's very much a non-religious Republican stronghold with
              lots of people believing in family values.
              \_ It's WEST Hollywood. North Hollywood is a rough area in
                 the valley. No self-respeting gay man would be caught dead
                 \_ At that point, his location probably wouldn't be up to him.
                  \_ Congratulations, you get the joke
              \_ "family values" in the OC include ignoring your children,
                 cheating on your spouse, divorcing, and having abortions in
                 other parts of CA so as to avoid running into someone you
                 know at the clinic. Fuck OC.
                 \_ I've heard so much about the OC. I've seen it in
                    Desperate Housewives. But tell us more about the OC,
                    I'd like to hear from someone who actually experienced it
                    \_ Got a car? No? Don't bother.

11/6    How a photographer can change opinion, subtlely via lighting,
        composition, contrast, color:
        \_ A couple years ago someone posted a link on motd which was a
           headshot of Dubya taken with a wide-angle lens at close-up distance.
           He looked stupid in that picture.  The photog did it on purpose
           according to the poster.

11/6    What's a good vacation for less than $750/person for 5 days
        in mid to late November?
        \_ New York City is quite nice in November. You can even wear
           shorts and t-shirt. Be sure to visit aspolito. He's a really
           nice guy who would never jerk you around. Oh and he's gay
           and loves sodomizing pollux.
           \_ what year are you living in?
        \_ What do enjoy doing?  Hiking around outside?  Lieing around
           in luxury?  Seeing cool shit?  150/person/day is a lot of
           money if you don't need to fly.
        \_ San Diego
           \_ bahahahahahahahahaha what a joke. No, been there, done
              that. Not particularly fun. I hate suburbia and fake cities.
              \_ Depends on what the OP wants to do. He should tell us
                 what he likes (nightlife, nature, single/family-oriented,
                 etc.). San Diego makes a very nice vacation if you like
                 sunshine, beaches, and hot women or if you have kids and
                 want to visit the Zoo, Sea World, etc.
              \_ My wife and I enjoyed our relatively cheap vacation in
                 San Diego, but I used to live there, so I knew where to
                 go. What kind of stuff are you looking for?
                 \_ I hate big amusement park type of thing. Sea World? BLAH.
                    The last time we went there, we went on this big
                    retired naval/air museum on the carrier (BLAH). Then
                    we went to this huge ass hotel built long time ago
                    called Coronado with a bunch of wrinkled people who
                    dressed nicely (BLAH). Then we went to downtown and
                    drove around (BLAH).  I mean, the place has no
                    interesting history behind it like San Francisco. Even
                    unique little places like Mendocino and Morrow Bay and
                    Carmel-By-Da-Sea are more interesting. San Diego was like
                    Los Angeles, you never arrived there, you never left.
                    The history is boring, and there's nothing unique there
                    that is interesting to San Diego besides naval ships.
                    I guess if you're into military shit, it'd be more
                    interesting, but I'm not. Fuck war. San Diego is so BLAH.
                    It's has absolutely no character behind it. Sadly,
                    today much of new American town is white washed in
                    interesting, but I'm not. Fuck war. San Diego has
                    absolutely no character behind it. Sadly, today much of
                    new American town is white washed in homogenous
                    characterless suburbia BLAH like San Diego. It's like
                    you drove 400-800 miles from home but never left home.
                    You know, I grew up in cities like San Diego and never
                    knew what a yokel I was till I went to college. FUCK
                    SAN DIEGO.
                    \_ Hotel Coronado has a lot of history behind it. So
                       does San Diego from the Mission to Lindbergh. I
                       just spent a week in Carmel and while it is very
                       beautiful it was also supremely boring. Everything
                       closed at 8pm and there's nothing for kids to do
                       (if you have kids). Same for Mendocino, although Fort
                       Ross was interesting. You never really said what it
                       is that you like to do, but if you like history
                       then you should go to Boston or Philadelphia.
                    \_ Did you go to Old Town? Did you visit the missions?
                       I'll admit that San Diego's no SF, but it's a fine
                       \_ How about Los Angeles? What do you recommend doing
                          in Los Angeles besides the usual stuff like
                          *yawn* Olvera Street, Korea Town, Japan Town?
                          \_ The only times I've been to J-Town were to
                             interview for the JET Program. As a native
                             San Diegan, downtown LA offends me. Better
                             to go to Huntington Beach and environs.
                    \_ You should have walked around Hillcrest and had coffee
                       at some of the cool coffe shops. Why did you drive
                       downtown at all? You should have been walking. Did you
                       see a jazz show at Croces? Why not? Spend some time in
                       Balboa Park? That park is way better than GG Park. The
                       Museum of Modern Art in La Jolla is much better than
                       anything we have and La Jolla cove is great people
                       watching. You just did the dumb tourist stuff. There
                       are some great and famous murals in Barrio Logan
                       as well, but they are off the beaten path. North Park
                       is also great, where I used to live.
        \_ world of warcraft 7 day free trial.  Visit Quel Tha'las, have
           the kiddies ask where mankrik's wife is, go see the metal bands
           play the undercity.  Get that Deeprun tram postcard.  Come back
           with a defias bandit mask.  Fun for the whole family.
           \_ LOL Best response ever! Thanks!

        \_ Yes? What about it? Young people today with nothing to lose
           but everything to gain from Socialism, embrace it. We're
           tired of having sucky infrastructures and unfairness.
           Let us all embrace socialism.
           \_ Why do you think they have nothing to lose?
              \_ Read Prop 13 history and ramifications
        \_ I presume you are free-market type.  Please do tell me you
           oppose the 700 billion bail out package.  Please tell me you
           do support the abolishment of
           - SEC
           - FDIC
           - FDA
           - minimum wage
           - child labor law
           - ban on human trafficking
           and let the invisible hand does everything.
           \_ Excellent straw man sir!
              \_ oh yeah? why don't you take a shot at it.  Free Market right?
                do you support the 700 billion bail out?  do you support
                government bail out of GM/Ford?  do you support government
                in effect double our national debt by acquiring AIG (liability
                on AIG's book constitute as part of national debt).
                Do you support roll back of margin requirement regulations
                that imposed by FDR?  Do let me know.  Because *PERSONALLY*
                given the choice of government take over these failed companies
                versus just hand out free cash to them with little or no
                string attached, I prefer the former.  If a company is too big
                to fail, then, it's to big.  Let it fail as free market
                dictate, right?
        \_ You know, I'd say 8 of the top 10 nicest countries to
           live in in the world are socialist.
           \_ Which are the other two? Switzerland and Singapore?
           \_ Nicest for who? You need to think about that.
              \_ I'm the decider, and I decide what is best for the
                 country.                               -GWB
        \_ Wow, I think this is the most efficent troll I have ever
           seen.  Bravo!
           \_ Seconded. It takes the Art of Troll to the next level. Kudos!
        \_ Key word: socialism
