2/7     Does "South Pole" have any special meaning in Japanese?  There are so
        many JAV with titles like "South Pole No. 2".  Thx.
        \_ "Pole at down south" I am no Japanese, but it seems quite obvious
            to me.
           \_ BTW do all the cultures and languages in the world use the same
              convention that north is "up" and south is "down"?  I know
              English and Chinese do.
                \_ no.
           \_ But the Japanese characters for "South Pole" literally means
              "south extreme".  They don't refer to pole.
              \_ Yup. Most of the sites I found by searching on "nankyoku"
                 were about Antarctica, not the South Pole in parcticular.
        \_ What does JAV stand for?  Japanese Animation somethin?  Sounds
           like it's worth knowing, i.e. chicks will dig it if I just throw
           it into a conversation "randomly."
           \_ Sorry, it's "Japanese Adult Video".  It's also one of the
              censoring levels in Japanese porn.  You don't want to throw it
              into a converstion with chicks.
              \_ What are the other censoring levels?
                 \_ JAV has "checkerbox" covering genital areas.  This is leagl
                    in Japan.  THN is "thin matrix" censoring where the
                    checkerbox is less opaque.  This is illegal in Japan.  XXX
                    is uncensored and is also illegal in Japan.
              \_ Perhaps the chicks YOU hang out with are too uptight.
                 Many chicks love porn!
                 \_ Many chicks star in porn. Imagine that. They're still
                    the minority.

        Japan rules!
        \_ Fifteen years ago I worked there for seven months.  I miss Japan!
           (I'm Chinese immigrant.)  More facts:
           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

8/29    OC turning liberal, maybe there is hope for CA afterall:
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

7/20    Is jblack still on? What about the rest of the pro-war cheerleaders?
        \_ War is fought for the glory of generals and the economics of the
           war machine.  Looking for "justifications" for it is like looking
           for sense in the necronomicon.  Just accept it and move on.
        \_ When we fight with Red China, what nation will we use as a proxy?

12/5    Miss France is very good looking:
        \_ she has a hook nose and face is a bit too V shaped.  Body is ok.
           I mean lets look at the sample pool of 20 something EU:
        \_ French women in general are good looking, so Miss France is probably
