7/30    The best use of twitter:
        \_ what is this?
           \_ someones tweets from a life of debauchery in thailand.
        \_ Is that john@soda?
           \_ If you have to ask, you don't know.
        \_ So this guy is just walking around and grabbing random girls
           tits? No wonder the image of the "ugly American" persists.
           \_ Those girls like it, that's how they know they'll have
              a stable income.
              \_ Not only do those girls like it, their moms see it as
                 a retirement plan.
           \_ I think that's the common way to start a biz transaction
              with these women.
              \_ You sure these are women?
                 \_ By Thai standards they're almost old crones.

7/29    Hi, I will be in Montreal and Gainesville, Fla for a few days in Aug.
        Would appreciate any food/activity/culture recommendations. Thanks.
        \_ Ugh Gainesville.  3 hours from the middle of nowhere, I guess you
           can go to UF college bars. but still.
        \_ Likewise, I am off to Oregon for 11 days. 4 business and 7
           pleasure. Driving up from CA. Business is in Portland. What's
           not to miss?
           \_ Arcata is nice, as is the Lost Coast. Kind of foggy this
              time of year, though.
              \_ No idea what "Lost Coast" is but went to Arcata and Eureka
                 and didn't much care for them. Probably won't go back.
              \_ Actually, Shelter Cove (Lost Coast) is rarely foggy, due
                 to local topography.  -tom
                 \_ The Lost Coast is more than just Shelter Cove, but that
                    is a good spot to camp, if you are looking for that.
           \_ go on a Hippie safari.

7/30    "911 caller in Gates case hurt by racist label" (
        So, do criminals have the right not to be reported by race, unless
        they are white?

7/30    So market timer guy, are you back in yet? The 50 SMA has clearly
        crossed the 200 on all three averages.

        \_ Who is this article for? The people I know who spend/consume the most
           aren't anyone in their 30s or 40s, but the high value items, like
           boats, rvs, (and the petrol they use, etc) are all being bought by
           retiring boomers who are completely out of touch with reality, esp
           since now we discuss reality  in media the bboomers as a whole do
           (not your silicon valley parent you 4th gen programmer) not use.
           \_ Most Americans? I don't know if they are ready to hear such a
              message yet, but it is worth trying to reach them. She fails to
              connect the dots here though, and point out the fact that the
              financial and economic crises have at its root a resource
              limitation. I think capitalism is bumping up against its own
              illogical contradictions. We will probably have to go through
              a couple more of these cycles before we figure it out though.
              \_ You mean we have to go thru more of these cycles in *our
                 lifetime*.  Nobody cares what happened to their parents or
                 \_ Plenty of people care what happens to their children though.
                    \_ Educated liberals,like pandas&cacophos,don't reproduce.
        \_ but there is always a new frontier, tat's why we're going to the moon
           \_ mars
              \_ Iran
        \_ Drill, baby drill!
           \_ is that a porno yet?
