3/9     Border arrests drop to 1970s levels
        \_ Hey look, freeper dude is back. Welcome freeper dude, why did you
           leave for a couple of years there?
           \_ Can't be freeper dude, it's not a non-descriptive URL.
              \_ k, let me replace it with IP and make it "real"

3/9     Dang.  Obama seriously screwed up that meeting with Gordon Brown.
        Seriously, isn't Hillary supposed to be helping with this stuff?
        \_ She was busy screwing up her meeting with Russia.  Seriously, they
           didn't like Bush, but at least they didn't openly laugh at us.  I
           guess they don't need to worry about crypto.
        \_ Yeah, that wasn't brilliant. Out of curiosity, though, is a pen-
           holder made from the wood of a Victorian slave-ship really a
           thoughtful gift to present to our first African American Pres.?
           (Noted that it matches the desk in the Oval Office and that Obama's
           connection to Africa is more recent than, say, the Civil War.)
           \_ You missed the "anti". It was from the anti-slave ship HMS
              Gannet. You know, one of the British ships that hunted slavers.
              \_ I'm an idiot. You're absolutely right. I'll leave this up for
                 another ten minutes, then I'll delete it.
        \_ I think it's perfectly fine. U.S. is saying "We're poor, don't
           expect much from us."
        \_ Did Obama at least get Region 2 PAL DVDs for Brown?  Or was he
           stupid enough to get Region 1 NTSC?
           \_ Hmm, all those Danish DVDs from Color Climax Corp in Region 2
              PAL foramt.

3/6     Chinese UNIX^H^H^H^Heunuchs Museum:
        \_ Oh come on. Nobody appreciated the UNIX/eunuchs pun? -op
           \_ Thanks. I was too young to understand what ^H meant until
              now. Great link. Let's castrate everyone to rid the world's
              problems, like over-population and war.
                \_ FYI: some of the historically most corrupt people have
                   been eunuchs.
                   \_ Like who? And what does that have to do with anything?
                     \_ I'm not your babysitter.  It has to do with "war."
                        \_ Then it's not FOI is it?  It's just you being a
                           If you got rid of overpopulation you'd be rid
                           of war, mostly.
                                \_ learn to use google.  It's pretty easy.

3/9     Mr. Buffet just said "I will guarantee you that the Dow will be a lot
        higher" but doesn't say how long that will take.  Damn!  "You know,
        2,000, 8,000, they're all numbers."
        \_ Very tempting to buy at these levels. But what?
           \_ Potential downers to major indexes:
              - CRE, emerging market defaults, insurers, unemployment, war

3/9     On my iPhone, how do I tell it to force certain callers to
        go to my voice mail directly?
