2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning
        Autistic person. Meanwhile, everyone worships Jobs because
        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself
        as God. I guess this is not the first time in history. Case in
        point, Caesar, Napolean, GWB, etc. Why is it that people
        throughout history worship assholes?
        \_ GWB is in this category?  He might have been an asshole, but he's
           not good looking like JFK, Reagan and Bill Clinton.
           not good looking like JFK, Reagan or Bill Clinton.
           \_ Future historians will realize that Dubya belongs
              in the same league as Napolean, Caesar, Robert E. Lee
              and Steve Jobs.
        \_ As someone who basically went up to Woz in a public setting
           and went all "fan" on him, and then spent a decent amount of
           time telling him why I thought a particular political postion
           of his was wrong, I can tell you that Woz is no asshole. At
           least in my limited experience of foisting myself on him, in
           my own socially inept and obnoxious way no less, I found him
           to be an exceptionally nice guy. -phuqm
           \_ How did you read this 180 degrees the opposite of what the OP
              intended? He said that Jobs was an asshole and that Woz was
              a nice but uncharsismatic fellow.
              \_ Because he's social inept and obnoxious?
        \_ I wouldn't say "no one" worships Woz.  He's just only worshiped
           by other highly functioning Autistics.  Not a huge demographic,
           but it probably includes most of us.
        \_ I think it says a lot about the CSUA that nobody pointed out
           that people worship Jobs because he was responsible for creating
           great products and also turning around a totally moribund company.

3/26    Things I learned from History: Lincoln was photographed with
        killer. Lincoln had 3 male lovers (he was bisexual!).
        Kennedy had an affair with a Nazi spy. Elenore Roosevelt
        was a lesbian!!!  Nerdy looking Ben Franklin was a suspected
        killer and quite a ladies man. WTF???
        \_ Did it mention anything about Washington and the cherry tree?

12/4    Why aren't there as many comedians making fun of Obama as
        there are making fun of GWB?
        \_ he's not as ridiculous.
        \_ No one was making fun of Dubya after only one year in office either.
           In fact, making fun of him after 9/11 was likely to get you lynched.
           Wait until O's second term, then people will really start to light

4/9     I've been reading articles about piracy and it's not really an issue
        of there being just two dozen ships to patrol a large area. It
        only really takes one ship, if it's the right ship (an aircraft
        carrier). The Navy should be using helicopters and ship-based
        aircraft (e.g., Harriers) to patrol and respond to these incidents
        and then you only need a couple of destroyers to perform

11/6    How a photographer can change opinion, subtlely via lighting,
        composition, contrast, color:
        \_ A couple years ago someone posted a link on motd which was a
           headshot of Dubya taken with a wide-angle lens at close-up distance.
           He looked stupid in that picture.  The photog did it on purpose

11/4    Gee.  I have always hoped that the first black POTUS would be Powell.
        Now this 47-yr-old dude stole the opportunity created by Dubya.  In a
        way Dubya is like Gobachev -- they both instrumented their parties'
        \_ Powell fucked us all by backing Dubya in saying there were WMDs in

           \_ And reelected, at that!
              \_ ugh i hope not.
        \_ الله أَكْ!

8/13    Wow, how does the kool-aid taste?
         "My point is that a President Obama will have a good, strong
        dialogue-oriented relationship with Russia, where these kinds of
        situations would not occur."
        \_ Red-flavor or blue-flavor?
