1/2     Why the Euro conversion is a Good Thing (tm):
        http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20020102/od/germany_dc_1.html
        \_ Let's see... 1 euro = $0.90... Damn that's nice.
           \_ CSUA-field-trip-to-Deutchland-P
              \_ nil -- russian jew
        \_ The idea was originally 1 euro = $1.00.
        \_ There's a better reason: it'll take the europeans years to recovere
           from entangling and mushing up their different economies, legal
           system, transport, etc, etc, etc, during which time we'll leave
           them in a far distant second place economically while we continue
           to ship more cigarettes, Coke, and McDonald's over there.  There
           is more than one way to win a war.  Conquering your enemy's
           culture without bloodshed is the best long term method of victory
           and it creates jobs along the way.  I'm all for the Euro.
           \_ In 20 years we are going to be second to China anyway.
              \_ Laughable.
                 \_ Yeah, the World Bank is a bunch of jokers.
                    \_ do you know the real reason the american economy
                       has been having problems?  ever since the motd.public
                       has been unreadable to those without csua accounts,
                       allan greenspan has been unable to read it, and
                       has been without it's wisdom for quite some time.
                       the effects are obvious.
                       \_ finger motd@soda.csua.berkeley.edu
           \_ When you subtract out all of the .com crap which was transient
              growth,  Europe actually had better productivity growth than the
              US.  They also work less than we do.
              \_ which why Germany test scores are so high

7/21    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Cold_War_pilot_defections
        This week's food for thought, brought to you by People's
        Republic of Berkeley: Did you know that many US pilots defected to
        communist Cuba?  South Korea pilots defected to communist
        North Korea? Iran<->Iraq pilots defected to each other?
        W Germany pilots defected to E Germany? Taiwan/ROC pilots

5/16    Can anyone tell me what Greece is hoping for by rejecting austerity?
        From here it seems like the austerity is a pretty generous attempt
        to keep Greece from imploding entirely.   Are they hoping the
        Germans will put them on eternal state welfare, or what?
        Also, why would an outright default mean they must leave the Euro?
        Is it just that they won't be able to pay basic gvmt services

6/1     There is a lot of panic. Euro. Greece. Unemployment. GDP.
        VIX is up. That means one thing: BUY BUY BUY!!!
        \_ Eh, I'm not sure we're at BUY BUY BUY yet.
        \_ Eh, I'm not sure we're at BUY BUY BUY yet.  I think
           things may still go lower from here.  1280 was my target
           before that jobs report.

2/16    "Iraqi: I'm proud my WMD lies led to war in Iraq"
        http://www.csua.org/u/sl0 (news.yahoo.com)
        \_ Duh.  the best thing that could ever happen to a country is
           the US declaring war on it.  cf: japan, germany, and now iraq.
           the US winning a war with it.  cf: japan, germany, and now iraq.

12/15   I'm planning on traveling to Europe and I was wondering if there's
        any reason I shouldn't be able to use a US power tap/strip (no surge
        suppression) with just a plug adaptor (i.e., no voltage conversion).
        This would be for use with electronics that accept 100V-240V. While
        the power strip is intended for use at 120V, it's just wires, right?
        (Also, this power strip has no power LED or similar.) If anything,

5/8     What was up with Greece of all things affecting the market?
        \_ I'm not sure why, but I guess a Greek collapse could screw
           up the Euro as a currency.

4/25    "Aliens may exist but contact would hurt humans"

        Normally I'd just shrug it off when I hear comments like this, but
        this time the one who said it was Stephen Hawking.
         \_ Why? what aspect of Hawking's intelligence makes him any more
            compelling than the 1000s of others who have pointed out this

12/5    If Harry Potter is rewritten in a modern style using science
        instead magic, and using real people and references instead of
        fiction, what could it include? I'll start:
        -Slytherin Pureblood = Nazi Ayran
        -Muggle = melting pot
        -Dobby = Black slavery, illiterate
