4/11    Everyone go watch the movie "Primer" right now.  Then come back here
        and explain to me what in the fizuck is going on.
        \_ So, um, you want us to write you a primer on Primer?
           \_ I guess, yeah.  I urge you all to go rent it on DVD if you can
              find it - this is the first science fiction movie I've seen in
              ages that deals with actual ideas instead of just aliens blowing
              shit up.  And it was made for $7,500 apparently.  I think I've
              got a better handle on what's happening now, actually.  Here's a
              hint: recursion.
              \_ Can't we just say that it's not physically possible to go
                 backwards in time and any movie which speculates on it is just
                 another Star Trek / STNG / Back To The Future / The Butterfly
                 Effect re-hash?
                 \_ No, becuase those are generally bad (camp value of Star
                    Trek aside), and this movie is Good.
                    \_ Okay, the NetFlix users seem to think so too, so I
                       put it in queue.  But it's not out until next Tuesday.
                       Thanks!  Always looking for good stuff.

1/26    Wozniak says the the Steve Jobs movie clip is historically inaccurate,
        that Jobs was not so much a visionaire that Jobs claimed to be, as Jobs
        was just looking to make a few quick bucks. Why should we trust
        Woz's words over Jobs'?
        \_ Seriously? Read both the Steve Jobs biography and Woz's autobiography.
           Nobody contests that Jobs was a scumbag. Also: the lounge in Soda Hall.

1/3     I declare LG LED is amazing. I switched.
             -long time Sony owner, no longer have any faith in Sony
        \_ How does sports look on it? -Old Skool Plasma Screen Guy
           \_ I don't watch sports. Dumb people with a lot of loyalty
              watch sports. You drink beer too?
              \_ Loyalty is a good thing. Do you cheat on your g/f too?

12/6    Lesson learned: don't talk about Monty Python on a date. Women just
        don't seem to get it.
        \_ You are dating the wrong women (for you) then. My sister-in-law
           loves it and yet I don't find it all that funny. It's not a
           gender thing.
           \_ is she a nerd? does she laugh funny? is she actually decent looking?

10/17   Cloud Atlas Shrugged.
        \_ How is this movie? Did you see it?
           \_ Cloud Atlas is a movie. Atlas Shrugged is a movie.
              Cloud Atlas Shrugged is a made-up name.
              \_ How was Cloud Atlas?

8/2     Where's the closest Chick-Fil-A to San Francisco? I need to
        go there and make out with my boyfriend.        -gay
        \_ Chick-Fil-A is a place for people who want to Fil(l)-A-Chick. :-)
        \_ Why do you want to watch a bunch of fat White Trash eating
           greasy food?
