8/2     <crickets>
        \_ quiet and senerity are better than the alternative.  Maybe you
        \_ quiet and senerity[sic] are better than the alternative.  Maybe you
           should go back to your 4chan buddies?
           \_ you are presenting a false dichotomy between quiet and whatever
              you think 4chan is. chaotic? debased? I dunno. There are many
              alternatives to quiet not just one alternative. Quiet in this
              case is boring. the motd used to be interesting.
              \_ Well, jazz is up a bit then!
              \_ Well, jazz it up a bit then!
                 \_ if you're seriously using the phrase "jazz it up" then we've
                    already lost ...

8/3     We Americans are not the only ones failing geography. (
        \_ American travel agent.
           \_ Really?  The article didn't say this.
              \_ Yes, it did: "but her travel agent accidentally scheduled"
                 \_ I don't see "American" anywhere in that line, unless you
                    meant all the travel agents for the competitors were
                    supposed to be provided by the host country.
        \_ Mind you, how many Americans know there's a Carlsbad in CA? The
           caverns in NM are much more famous. That said, I'm surprised the
           NM Carlsbad has an airport....

8/3     Berkeley now ranks 70, while UCLA ranks 50. Williams College
        is #1.
        \_ Forbes hates public education. A less ideologically biased ranking
           has Berkeley at 22 (which is still a fall from the golden years):
  (US News and World Report)
           \_ how high was it in golden years?
              \_ We were ranked #5 in 1983.
                 \_ seriously??? URL?
