12/30   Women on jdate look hot. Do I need to give up bacon to
        date them?
        \_ Don't know, but you may have to give up your foreskin to date them.
           \_ I think this is a deal breaker for most men, and why
              throughout history Christianity always overwhelms Judaism.
              In Christianity the barrier to entry is much lower, the recruitment
              strategy is much more aggressive, the church income (10%) is higher,
              the marketing is superior (hot women in church), and most
              importantly you don't need a painful cosmetic surgery on your dick.
              In another word, Christianity is a well run corporation and
              Judaism is just another mom and pop store.

              \_ Most Christians believe in the literal truth of The Bible,
                 which means they are stuck with a 2 millenial old system
                 suited for tribal sheepheaders. Judaism has something called
                 the Talmud where you can argue endlessly about the right
                 way to do things. So it evolves over time.

4/26    Is it correct to say that Godel's work on the incompleteness thm
        proved the Principia Mathematica wrong?
        \_ It didn't exactly prove it wrong; it proved that the true goal of
           PM (a complete and consistent set of mathematical truths)
           is unattainable.  -tom
           \_ Ah cool, no this is good. See ok yeah so the main goal of PM
              was to "be complete" but obGodel so that fails.  However as a
              piece of logic, that is, a system build up from first principles
              is PM is still valid, inspite of Godel?
              etc.) --OP
              \_ What Godel showed is that you can use PM's language (or any
                 other complete mathematical language) to create a paradoxical
                 statement.  That means that you can't assert that any
                 statement described by PM's language is true.  But in
                 practice it doesn't change much.  (Although why you would
                 use PM's language in practice is unclear; it's rather a
                 theoretical exercise).  -tom
                 \_ Would you use it to teach logic to a someone?  Is it at
                    least good for that?
                    \_ Sure, it could work for that, but it's pretty complex.
                       \_ Would it be correct to say, "If you studied logic
                          and understand how to follow logic, then you should
                          be able to read the PM." (as a milestone marker)?
        \_ It proved that PM is incomplete. DUH!!!
           \_ Well, more precisely, it proved that a symbolic logic cannot
              be both complete and consistent.  It would be more accurate to
              say that PM is inconsistent than that it's incomplete.  -tom

6/8     My wife and I are childless. We never had much interest, but if we
        don't have kids soon we never will and so we are talking about it.
        To us the birthing process and pregnancy are disgusting. I realize
        it's the most natural thing in the world, but it's still extremely
        nasty to us both. And I believe in childbeating, which is illegal
        where I live. The more we learn (plus about all the associated
        risks) the more we marvel that anyone is _ever_ born and how
        couples who go through it would want to repeat it. I read about
        women who like to eat the placenta and I almost lost my lunch and
        I am not a squeamish person. I saw a video of a woman giving birth in
        high school health class, but that did not prepare me adequately
        for the reality. We are left wondering why in the hell anyone would do
        this, especially after seeing how ungrateful our nieces and nephews
        are. I am curious how those of you with kids managed to reconcile
        these feelings. Maybe we're better off not being parents, although
        I think we'd make good parents. We could adopt, but raising someone
        else's kids is something I don't think I could do (even though my dad
        did it). I get very frustrated that we have agonized over this so
        much while much of the world just pumps them out without a thought.
        \_ be thankful that you like in Northern Cal. Maybe you should move
           to SF and feel at home.
        \_ we'll thank you for not peeing in the genetic pool
           \_ My genes are already all over the place. I have six nieces and
              nephews. I wish my sisters would have thought about this as
              much as I have, because, frankly. parenthood has not been
              successful for them.
              \_ Those asren't your genes, they are your siblings.  Similar,
                 yes, but not the same.
                 \_ Most of them are the same - enough to matter.
                 \_ Read between the lines.  OP is bragging that his nieces and
                    nephews have his genes ......
                    \_ Oh!  How incestuous!
                       \_ Either that (hot!), or he's screwing his sister-in-
                          law (hot!)
        \_ get over yourself.
           \_ Same to you, buddy.
        \_ for many, children are a consequence of sex.  Effective birth control
           wasnt even really an option until recently.  Even still many forego
           it, for (short-sighted) economic reasons, or even religious ones.
           Oh, and even if you can get past the whole childbirth process,
           children are not for the squeamish.    Poop-filled diapers, and
           more!  Whee!
        \_ You believe in child beating and you think that you would make
           a good parent? Go get yourself sterilized, please.
           \_ Some dim-wit added that. I am dim!
        \_ I have two kids and I love it.  I'm hoping to have a few more.
           They are constantly fun and interesting to me, only occasionally
           are they obnoxious.  But we raise them very carefully.
           We never buy things for them and we don't have TV in our house.
           This goes a long way to keeping them polite and interesting.
           Also, I don't really mind disgusting things, diapers and whatnot.
           I don't know why people get so freaked out about it.
           \_ I am not disgusted by changing diapers. My wife and I are
              disgusted by having another human being living as a parasite
              inside of her like some sort of movie monster. The post-birth
              aspect doesn't seem disgusting, but the pregnancy and birth
              seem like 9 months of hell.
              \_ Somehow, billions of people have managed to get through it,
                 I bet you can too if you really care to. I am also a later
                 parent (had my first child at 40) and I have to say, I
                 could not be happier about it even though I was sleep
                 deprived for the first year.
                 \_ Lots of people manage to get through it with a healthy
                    child and a healthy mother, but some don't.

        her period that week?  that would suck
        \_ I'm sure you could figure out a solution if you think hard enough.
           I have wondered if people ever plan around this.
        \_ Just do it in the bath tub.  You don't even need condoms.
           \_ you know what, you can still get pregnant during this time
              period.  my friend thought the above was true, now has
              cute baby girl that proves him wrong.

           be kind of a bummer, but very few people do that.

           \_ Same reason they lie to get grants about Global Warming.

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
           always very good looking. Can you find pics of previous years
           \_ American women are prettier. They actually come in
              all sizes and all colors. French women? Blah. It's like
              eating the world's best crepe every single day. Even
              the best will taste bland after you get used to them.
              Variety is the spice of life.
           \_ I noticed a lot more blonde women in France than I expected
              to see and, yes, many are very attractive. My aunt moved
              \_ it's the organic food, I tell ya.
              to France and her daughters (my cousins) are all half-French
              and I think that they were very pretty when they were young.
              (They are pushing 50 now.) However, Miss France, although
              extremely attractive, doesn't have much in the way of T&A. Of
              the bunch of girls in the swimsuits she has probably the
              best body for modeling, but not really the most sexy body.
              \_ I agree, JACKIE JOHNSON is waaaay prettier! I like
                 Jackie's more robust body. NICE.
                 \_ Lisa Guerrero > Jackie Johnson.
              She might have the least curves of any of the women. I find
              that she's too skinny and unathletic. Do you like girls
              with flat butts? BTW, I think all those girls are French,
              right? "Miss France" was Miss Normandy.
              \_ The norse woman has flat butts. Look at examples across
                 the channel as well.  Their fat accumulation occurs on the

              \_ In general is not the same as all. If I was looking for

                 \_ my point is, in Japan, most women are NOT as petite

           cousins. I like Southern women. Best part is they don't expect
           too much from you. Don't beat them up, have a job, and have all
           your teeth and you'll have to fight them off. You might have
           to have a shootout with her ex- when he gets out of jail, though.

9/3     Given that rape porn of innocent-looking girls are so popular in

8/19    Do you think it's okay to bring a small baby to the movies? I went
        to see Rocky Horror tonight and these three women came in with a
        small baby in a stroller and sat in front of me. The baby never
        cried, but it was awake and gurgling and whatever and the mom was
        constantly fussing over it and it was very distracting. Concerned
        about the distraction and that it wouldn't stay quiet for a full 2
        hours, I left 15 minutes in and asked for (and got) a refund. I go
        to the movies maybe once per year, so this was a treat for me and
        I feel the parent was inconsiderate, especially since she obviously
        had "sitters" in the other two women, but none of them wanted to
        miss out. I almost said something to her when I walked out, but I
        didn't. What do you think? Is it reasonable to bring a baby?
        \_ 1) you are right, bringing a baby to a movie is asking for trouble.
           But that doesn't sound like it was the problem: the problem was
           the mother making noise.
           2) If you are seeing Rocky Horror in a theater and you can hear
           something like a baby gurgling, you are doing it wrong.  That movie
           is meant to be watched in a theater full of screaming drunken
           amateur comedians.  Go see it for real with a real cast...
           or not.  If you rarely go to see movies and are the type of person
           who is annoyed by people "Distracting" from that particular
           movie, you may be too anal retentive to enjoy RHPS.  The movie
           sucks btw.  Hence the heckling.         --brain
        \_ It's probably inconsiderate, but I'm more concerned about the
           baby.  I think the sound level in cinemas are way too high for
           babies' ears, no matter what genre of movie it is.
           \_ Are babies' ears more sensitive?  It seems I've gotten more
              sensitive as I've gotten older.  The noise didn't bother me
              as a kid, but now I need ear plugs in the theater. -!op
        \_ Don't be a jerk. Your baby won't enjoy the loud noise, and
           neither will the people around you. PLEASE don't spoil it for
           the people of planet earth. Stay home. Please.
        \_ I would think that bringing small children, even babies to a
           childrens movie would be okay. I don't think this is one of
           of those cases though. -father of a baby and a toddler

8/10    I'm the person who took care of my gf's sister's cat while she was
        away with the Air Force. In return, I asked her to check on my
        sons for a week while I was away. She skipped a day (and committed
        a lie of omission when she didn't say so but admitted it when
        questioned) and the upstairs bedroom was full of my sons' diarrhea all
        over everything (wooden floor, bookcase, blankets) - which is not
        typical for my litter-trained sons, but probably a result of my
        absence - but she didn't clean it up or even mention it to me. I
        got in at 11pm at night and spent 2 hours dealing with that. After
        I cleaned her place spotless I'm VERY pissed.
        \_ I keep a mental blacklist of people I never ever want to be in
           contact with. Very few people get on that list. It sounds like
           this person needs to be put on this black list. FYI, for example,
           this junior high "friend" that I invited to the wedding said he
           would come to the wedding. I even confirmed it the week before.
           I reserved 1/2 of a table, or $300 worth. My wedding came, and
           1/2 of that table was empty. I called him up a few days later
           and he said he totally forgot because there was this really
           important church retreat. Then he came up with a bunch of excuses,
           said he was sorry, and said he would reimburse. Then later on
           he said "I don't think it should cost $300, ours was really cheap."
           I never heard from him again. He is on my blacklist. He sounds
           like the same breed as your gf's sister.
        \_ I don't hang out with my friends who have kids anymore. Once
           they started the family nucleus, nothing outside matters anymore.
           You're an outsider. You're of someone who could help them. Period.
        \_ You know, sometimes you do meet people who are irresponsible or
           who just don't care. There's not much you can do. Some people are
           just like that, just learn to not deal with these people. I've
           learned to ignore some of my family members who are totally
           wackos. Yeah, they're family... SO WHAT? If they can't help
           you, they can't.
           \_ I have a bunch of crazy and irresponsible relatives, including
              one who has been in and out of prison and another who is a
              crazy (literally) drug abusing homeless guy. I have learned over
              one who has been in and out of prison and another who is an
              insane (literally) drug abusing homeless guy. I have learned over
              the years not to trust them and consider my help to them to
              be charity, nothing more. With friends, I would expect some kind
              of reciprocity, but with a charity case, you just help them and
              don't expect anything in return except gratitude.
        \_ Yea, that sucks.  Get someone else next time, or kennel them.
        \_ I totally agree with you.  It's not too much to expect a threesome
           orgy in return.
           \_ that's not an orgy.

        Yes!!! Women are getting prettier and prettier due to evolution.
        "In men, by contrast, good looks appear to count for little, with
        handsome men being no more successful than others in terms of numbers
        of children. This means there has been little pressure for men
        appearance to evolve."
        Yes!!!! I have a chance to win at the reproductive game of
        human race!                     -average looking overweight sysadm
        \_ I believe it. Look at the old paintings of women. Yes, beauty
           ideals evolve, but so many of those women were downright homely.
           The men in the paintings look similar to men now.
           \_ Actually old paintings indicate that women were fat. Thanks
              to media, they are skinny malnutritioned sticks, the way our
              culture want them to be.
              \_ You are talking about Rubens, but not every painter portrayed
                 women that way. I am not talking about their bodies anyway,
                 but their faces. There are a lot of paintings by people
                 like Gainsborough done in the 1700s which depicted the
                 wealthy. The subjects were not fat. However, neither were
                 most of them attractive. Some of them were quite, but that
                 seemed to be more the exception than the rule. I think
                 better nutrition, and possibly evolution, has lead to
                 more attractive women certainly.
                 \_ The wealthy ate better than the poor, and the wealthy
                    had painters. Eating better-->getting fat-->getting more
                    pictures. As for nutrition and evolution, IMHO better
                    healthcare in general explains it all. You ever wonder
                    why the average American has better looking teeth than
                    the British? It's because Americans spend much more on
                    dental care than any other developed nations.
                    \_ Did you completely ignore my comment that the subjects
                       did not appear to be fat? Ugly, maybe. Fat, no.

           they look and dress. Along the East coast and mid-Atlantic
           you have overachieving women who act like men and wear no makeup.
           On the West coast women are more casual in their dress and
           appearance. Only in-between do women dress and act like men
           expect women to (in a stereotypical way). Women in the South and
           Texas won't even leave the house without doing their hair.
      \_ At least if you live somewhere that gets really hot and humid
         in the summer, the sun dresses come out.  In the bay area,
         everyone wears the same thing every day all year
           \_ Yeah, I lived in The South for three years. The women there
              all dress like high class hookers.

7/14    Every once in a while, the woman becomes a TOTAL BITCH and starts
        to bitch and whine about every little thing about you and is trying
        to pick a fight. What the hell do you guys do when the bitch becomes
        a total bitch?
        \_ logic and defense will only take you so far.  Just realise that
           not everything is about you and be okay with it.  Maybe it's
           brain chemicals.  Maybe she didn't eat well today.  Maybe it's
           that time of the month.  Maybe people were mean to her today.
           Maybe the potholder she's looking at reminds her of when her
           cat died when she was eight.  It has nothing to do with you.
           I also like the technique of apologizing for things which
           logically couldn't possibly be your fault.  Use sparingly or
           you will be accused of being patronizing.  These techniques
           will work on anyone, not just your lady.
        \_ I usually talk it out.  I tend to defend myself and my position and
           when she is right, I take it to heart and try and change my habits
           so that it won't be an issue in the beginning.  If she is just being
           unreasonable I tell her and then grovel until it blows over.  I don't
           have the best success with women though :) In the best relationships
           I've had I just had to lick the clit.  But all women aren't like men,
           some want you to prove yourself.
           \_ You "had to" lick the clit?  In my relationship I have to behave
              really well before I *get to* lick my wife's clit.
              \_ That is why I said best relationships!
           \_ you can't REASON with the bitch. That's the whole point of
              the post "there's not much I can do, what do YOU do?"
        \_ I take off and go for a long walk. I only have to do this a few
           times a year, but it is better than a pointless argument. Not sure
           this is the best answer, but it is better than what I learned from
           my (divorced) parents, which is to have screaming fights that
           eventually turned physical.

5/17    Has anyone else noticed that today's teenaged girls are freakishly
        tall? The stats may not bear that out because of changing demographics
        in this nation (influx of shorter peoples) but even traditionally
        short races like Asian are taller than they were. Today I noticed
        at least 4 girls over 6' tall at the grocery store (two different
        stores) doing shopping with their dads. (I guessed these women were
        about 20 when I first saw them until dear old dad came over to add
        something to the cart.) So they may be 6'+ and still growing. I noticed
        this with female athletes, too. Before, bigger female athletes were
        bulky and looked roided up but now women are large but with a more
        normal (proportionate or even skinny) physique. What's odd is that
        I don't notice the boys being any larger than before, except in
        races that were traditionally shorter like Asians. What's going on
        \_ girls aren't taller.  you're just old.  there is plenty of porn
           out there for you involving short guys and gigantic women
        \_ It's awesome.  More to see with the short miniskirts and kneehigh
           boots that are supposed to be in this year.  Oh wait, you live in
           the U.S.  Nevermind.  Sorry.  -John
        \_ boys are larger, Asian or not. 6'4" is like normal now for a
           20 year old Caucasian boy.
           \_ I don't think that's true. I am fairly tall myself and I notice
              when men are taller than I am (like 6'2" and taller). I think
              men are taller than they were (compared to my dad at 5'9")
              but I don't see that many Caucasian guys over 6'1" in *this*
              country (USA). In fact, people still refer to me as tall and
              I never thought I was anything but average or an inch over.
        such that we are breeding these Amazon women over the last 20 years?
        My sister is 5'8" and that was considered model tall when she was
        young (and she did model) and now I hear it's tough to model if you
        are under 6 feet. With the way girls now give out blowjobs as a way to
        test if you are boyfriend-worthy (instead of 4 years into a marriage)
        I feel like I was born too early, damn it. However, I am genuinely
        interested in the factors making so many large women.
        \_ Is this a "damnit I'm not getting laid because I'm short" post?
           If it is... yeah, Darwin say you're out of luck.
           \_ Getting laid, but not by such tall women because women my age
              just aren't that tall in most cases. It's a "not getting
              laid by leggy blondes because I am too old, but would have
              had I been born in 1988" post.
        \_ It's the bay area, they're going to be rotund and massive.
           They don't have to be anything else.
           \_ "Don't have to be"?
        \_ Both men and women are getting taller, due to better nutrition.
        \_ Yes, I have been noticing that young women keep getting taller.
           As a short guy, it is hard not to notice.
        \_ Dude, it's called high heels.
           \_ Young women don't wear that stuff except to church or job
              interviews. Try flipflops.

5/1     I heard so much feminist propaganda growing up I kinda thought PMS
        was kin of a joke, or just caused by cramps or something.  I was
        completely wrong.  I swear, every month, a few days before her
        period starts, it's crazy time at my house.  It's unbelievable.
        Anything, or even nothing, will set her off on some crazy emotional
        \_ Good I'm not the only one. My world is a (*#&@(*$@ 2-3 days

           nothing, and she bitches. I do something, and she bitches. It's
           non-stop bullshit. This is torture.
        \_ Yes, I notice my normally calm and even-tempered girlfriend
           gets edgy and temperamental on that cycle, too.  Not so bad
           as your woman, though.
           \_ My girlfriend normally has a fiery temper, but around that
              time it gets worse and she gets mean, too. She doesn't take
              birth control pills. Are those supposed to help? I am
              curious if either of your girlfriends take them.
              \_ BC pills stop the PMS, but also tend to dampen overall
                 sexual desire, in my observations.
        \_ i made a student cry in class yesterday and i suspect this is
           why since i barely said anything critical.

           \_ i disagree. sometimes my girlfriend forgets she's pms'ing

        *shocking* allegations.
        China denounces US 'rights abuse':
                China has responded in detail to a US report published this
                week criticising China for alleged rights abuses. Beijing
                released its own report on the US, saying crime is a threat to
                many Americans and racial discrimination prevails in social
                life across the US.
        \_ Chinese obviously doesn't know much about America.  American are
           actually very abusive in terms of human rights but we've just
           accept it as part of the norm.  example, USA has the highest
           incarceration rate, relatively high murder rate, Blacks/Latinos
           being jailed for drug-related crime are disproportionally higher
           than the demographics of the drug users, etc, etc.  And I haven't
           start talking about outsourcing tortures, prisoner abuse,
           detain people indefinitely without trial nor charges... I really
           don't know what is so special about China and their human rights.
           \_ We generally don't run over protestors with tanks here.  -tom
           \_ All of China is not Bejing.
           \_ Virtually no one in the USA goes to jail for just using drugs.
              In fact, in California, even many small time dealers may be
              released off the hook if caught dealing the first time. Those
              minorities in jail you're talking about are not there
              for just drug use. Most of them are recedivist dealers who
              negotiated a plea deal where they accept a relatively small
              jail time for drug possession in exchange for the judges
              dropping the more serious charges. They do it because
              most of them know their case wouldn't stand in court, and they
              would have to go to jail for much longer time. Just go outside
              of campus and see who is dealing drugs.
              \_ This is not true. I will do some research and get back to
                 you, but there are millions in jail in the US for possession

                    through the system.
                    \_ Well since you put it that way, I won't waste my time.
                       Obviously your second hand anecdotal knowledge is
                       superior than any kind of fact-based reasoning.

                           "users" were not jailed for dealing? No one goes to

                                       possession.  And, you'd have to take

1/22    Celtic Women are HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT and they sing well. HOT.
        \_ I saw a version of Riverdance in Branson, Missouri that was
           full of very fit Irish women and in one dance they wore white
           and with the lights it left absolutely nothing to the imagination.
           The crowd was pretty stunned. I turned to my girlfriend and
           said "Uh, what was that?" and she confirmed. If you know
           Branson (conservative Christian Disneyland) you'd think it
           amusing. Maybe not shocking in Las Vegas, but there was a hush over
           the crowd after that. What's weird is that most Irish women are not
           attractive according to some of my Irish friends who moved here. I
           guess when they are hot they are *very* hot, though.
           \_ That's true with any race. People in the world think every
              old guy looks as good as Sean Connery and they're usually
              disappointed when they get off of LAX.
              \_ Some more than others. British women in general are not
                 as hot as Latinas, for instance. For every Liz Hurley
                 there are probably 20 good looking Venezuelans. Denmark
                 and Sweden have hotter women than Germany and Greece,
                 in general. Anyway, my point is that people think Irish
                 women look like Jennifer Connelly or Anne Hathaway (who
                 are both about 25% Irish), but most are stout and
                 unappealing (according to my Irish acquaintances, women
                 included). I think Australia also has a
                 better-than-deserved reputation as does perhaps India,
                 where Aishwarya Rai is a stunner but hardly represents

9/14    bumped so this guy can see:
                    \_ I hope you are not still sitting out the month the
                       market goes up 20%, which it inevitably will, sooner
                       or later. How are you going to decide to jump back in?
                       \_ when the 50DMA increases past the 200DMA by 1% for
                          a major index
                          \_ Define "major index."
                             \_ DJIA.  Come on.  Hello?  I'm not trying to
                                "trick" you here.
                                \_ Okay, then post on the motd when you decide
                                   to get back in. I am kind of curious as to
                                   how your attempt at market timing works out.
                                   \_ all right.  keep in mind that I will
                                      likely put in 50-80% of my savings in,
                                      with 20-50% in CDs/bonds and "my favorite
                                      for the last 9-12 months, I have been 80%
                                      in CDs/bonds, and 20% in "my favorite
                                      shorts" (with appropriate stops)
                                      \_ There is a *huge* difference between
                                         being 20% cash and being 50% cash.
        \_ You're an idiot. I bet you predicted 10 of the last 3 recessions.
           I'm still in equities and I will be in equities 30 years from
           now. Have fun trading in and out. There's even a chance you
           will beat my return, but don't attribute it to skill.
           \_ bring up any major index in  use the
              Interactive Chart.  Draw the 50-day SMA and 200-day SMA lines.
              go in at when the 50 crosses the 200 at +1%.  go out when the

              well, just emotional, but that's a normal reaction.  people tell

                       predict the future?  Here's a hint: The more people
                       try to chase the past behavior of the market, the
                       less it will behave like it used to.  This is exactly
                       the lesson of the hedge funds.  -tom

                          think about it.  wait a week.  ask your respected
                          peers.  ask them to do it too.
                          the lesson on the hedge funds is that if you lever
                          up 30:1 it can bite you in the ass, especially if
                          you chase yield.
                          btw, I don't disagree with you on your point about
                          "the more people try to chase past behavior the less
                          it behaves like it used to".  in fact, this thought
                          is foremost of my concerns.

                          \_ The hedge funds wound up leveraging up because the
                             return on their strategy fell from .5% to less
                             than .2% in just a few years.  Individuals trying
                             to identify technical criteria for investing
                             are basically like the guy who has a system to
                             win in Vegas.  -tom
                             \_ 80% of technical analysis is crap.  have you
                                performed the exercise yet?  anyways, it's

                                   downturns, but look at 1987-1992 for a
                                   period where this strategy leaves you

8/8     How common is it for (white) married women in their mid 30s
        in SF to not wear a ring, engagement or wedding band?
        Common? Rare? Really rare?
        \_ I guess you've locked on a target.
        \_ I guess you've located a target.
        \_ Why are you asking? Are you trying to guess from the lack
           of ring, or did you guess, move, and get turned down because
           she said she was engaged/married?
           \_ I know for a fact she is married (because she mentioned him).
              I am curious whether there are a lot of people here who don't
              believe in the wedding band thing and never wore one, or whether
              she stopped wearing one for some reason I know more women are
              anti-diamond now, but I thought among Caucasian couples, the
              band of gold was pretty standard even among non-trad lefties.
        \_ Pretty rare, in my experience. For some reason, Asian married
           women are much less likely to wear a wedding band. Why is that?
           \_ They might attach less importance to the tradition. My mom
              doesn't wear a ring because she's afraid of someone mugging
              her or something. She hasn't really been mugged since riding MUNI
              in the 80s, but old habits die hard I guess.
           \_ My (asian) wife doesn't put as much importance on the tradition,
              and also it bugs her.  Sometime it gets kinda itchy I guess.
              She seems to wear it about half the time.
        \_ My parents are one of the most sickiningly happy married couples
           I know and they never wore wedding rings, and for some reason the
           whole idea of a ring seems strange to me.
           \_ That's because they never told you that they're SWINGERS
            \_ The only married swingers I know wear rings.

        specialist, for abortion? The website for my health care (PPO)
        doesn't seem to point anywhere to abortion. Is Planned
        Parenthood a good place for this sort of thing, or is it better
        for teenagers?
        \_ go to Planned Parenthood.  there you go.
        \_ My wife once got an early-term abortion from her OB/GYN.
           \_ I see, was it easier/tougher than Planned Parenthood?
              Do they ask a lot of questions and make it even more
              difficult than it is now? What was your occassian? Thanks
              PLEASE help out.
              \_ We didn't try Planned Parenthood.  The OB asked a lot of
                 questions, but they were all medical.  She didn't ask any
                 ethical or moral questions at all like "Why do you decide to
                 do this?" or "Are you emotionally ready?", or say anything
                 like "Just call us to cancel the appointment if you change
                 your mind." which would hint something.  The occasion was that
                 she got pregnant between our engagement and our wedding, which
                 was way too early for us to have kids.  We ended up having our
                 first kid 4 years into the marriage as planned.

                 \_ THANK YOU we're in the EXACT same situation. We just
                    went to an obgyn and she gave us a lot of information
                    and time to think about it. She did NOT give us any
                    trouble or her bias, just information. It was very very
                    professional and she was very very understanding and
                    said we have a lot of time to think about it since
                    it's still really early. Did you do the chemical or
                    surgery and why? We're leaning towards the chemical

                       control if you don't want a baby?
                       \_ Dude, give it a rest. Maybe the condom broke,
                          you don't know.

3/28    Irish+German women = SUPER HOT.
        \_ Asian women = little boy figures = satisfy my long awaited but
           socially unacceptable yearning for petite underaged lovers.
           That is why I think Asian women = SUPER HOT, and I'm sure
           many of you closet Asian lovers at Cal feel the same way.
           \_ What makes you think we are in the closet about it? I have
              a skinny flat-chested wife with braces and that makes me happy.
              What is wrong with that?
              \_ you need to be closet about the UNDERAGED part or else
                 the society will frown upon it.
                 \_ Yes, I do get scowls from white women my age, but I
                    am just amused by it. I don't really prefer underaged
                    women, just young adults, though my brother teases me
                    and calls me a pedophile.
        \_ Maybe at the high end of the spectrum, but both Irish and German
           women in general tend to be rather homely. Maybe two negatives
           equal a positive? I think on average Latin American women are
           the most attractive, but YMMV. Note that I am not saying there
           aren't hot Irish or German women. There absolutely are. I am
           speaking in general terms.
           \_ So sometimes there may or may not be in certain cases certain
              combinations that could or could result in a woman that is or
              is not attractive depending on yours or others personal
              preferences in some cases where upon each would have to decide
              on their own if someone was or was not possibly attractive in
              their view, sometimes, maybe?  YMMV.  IANAL.
              \_ I think there are accepted standards of beauty and my comment
                 was based on those. You can have your own preferences, just
                 like you can choose your own editor even though ED is the
                 \_ I think there are actually a few different standards of
                    beauty. Fertility is considered attractive cross-culturally
                    but that can be represented in quite a few different ways.
                 \_ Average people look... average.  What population do you
                    sample? For example, younger populations tend to look
           \_ Different flowers blossom and wither at a different rate.
              Latina women blossom at around 14-15 years old, but they
              tend to balloon up and look like Jaba the Hut by the time
              they're 24 years old. There's something about the early
              release of growth hormones. Like fireworks: great sparkle,
              but only for a short period.
              \_ You think Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Adriana Lima, or
                 Alessandra Ambrosio look like Jabba?
                 \_ Don't blame their Jaba the Hut genes. Latina blood has
                    superior digestive systems. Before the Conquistadores
                    came they ate grass and grain and looked beautiful.
                    But when they changed their diet to corn and other
                    starchy materials they started to balloon up. If there's
                    ever going to be WW3, skinny people will start to die from
                    the lack of starch while the Latinas will be the ones who
                    will survive by eating grass and grains. They will look

3/25    Do pregnant women in the last couple months of pregnancy get irrational
        or have mood swings?  A co-worker of mine is getting more and more
        annoying these days.  She picks on every single technical or management
        mistake that other people make and makes a very big deal out of it.
        And she sends long mail to the person right in the next cubicle to
        discuss technical stuff instead of just going over and talk.  It is
        getting very difficult to work with her.  I'm wondering whether this
        is due to her pregnancy or she's beginning to show the real side of
        her after being in the company for a while.  (We're in a software
        engineering dept.)  My current strategy is to avoid any communication,
        work- or non-work-related, with her at all unless absolutely necessary.
        I even try to avoid running into her in the hallway by listening for
        her footsteps first before I leave my cubicle.  Thanks.
           \_ Hot!  Thx.  But what does she have to do with pregnant women?
              \_ she looks pretty pregnant to me!
                 \_ With that flat stomatch???
        \_ Just a typical woman.
        \_ I know this sounds sexist but this is why we don't hire
           women in our company. I mean, I'd feel sorry for the guy
           she married, but actually, I feel sorry for most married guys
           with preg wife or kids. Yes this is pretty typical. Let it pass,
           it's just hormonal and it's not her fault.
           \_ It not only sounds sexist, it's illegal discrimination.
              \_ Federal laws exempt companies with less than 15 employees.
                 \_ that doesn't make it any less wrong, just not illegal.

        women, to me, they almost look like white guys.  I think 20 years

9/26    Not a troll, just a hypothetical question. If I breed with a
        Caucasian woman, will I help increase gene pool diversity, restore
        the "genetic vigor", and improve the human race in general? In
        another word, what is the probability that our children be as
        smart as I as and as healthy as she is, vs. the probability of
        our children be as dumb as she is and as weak as I am?    -SAM

        \_ That you're asking this question seriously brings into doubt the
           idea that any given Caucasian woman is dumber than you are.
           \_ Not only that, but the guy has it wrong. Asian women breed
              with white men. Asian guys don't get the caucasian poon.
              \_ hypothetical means "in theory" which has no implied
                 correlation with reality, right?
              \_ As I recall, 45% of asian-american women are married to white
                 guys, 36% of asian-american men are married to white women.
                 \_ Based on personal accounts I believe the 45% number. I'm
                    a bit dubious about the 36% though. Are these
                    Asian-American men married to REAL white women, or virtual

                    \_ I don't know, at church I know 2 asian-asian couples, 2

                       couple (mine).
                       \_ Interesting. How about outside of church?
                          \_ I think in my experience, for marriage, the 36% is
                             born out.  I think there's a lot of white-man/asian-
                             woman dating that doesn't result in marriage.
                             \_ Interesting. We've been married 11 years, but
                                many people assume we're just dating. Is this a
                                function of the WM/AW phenom?
                   \_ You recall incorrectly. Or your source was wrong.
                      WM-AF marriage is about 2.5X as likely as the converse.
        \_ They are more or less equally probable, you must have lots of kids.
           According to my asian wife, white women can have more children.
           \_ They WANT to have more children or they are more CAPABLE
              of having more children?
              \_ can == capable
           \_ The key is SELECTIVE breeding, a known and proven technique
              used since the dawn of domestication. Basically, assume
              the attributes are either/or (dominant/recessive), which
              is NOT the case here but for the sake of simplicity, you
              have the followings:
              1 25% chance of smart + healthy
              2 25% chance of dumb + healthy
              3 25% chance of smart + weak
              4 25% chance of dumb + weak
              So if you have LOTS of children and kill off all 2,3, and 4
              then only the smart and healthy one will propagate and
              improve the race.
              \_ Since, as you point out, this is not how the genetics of IQ
                 work, people who follow Punnett Squares for eugneics are
                 really working to remove themselves from the survival pool.
                  \_ the problem comes when you want to implement "kill off all
                     2 3 4." Not exactly socially acceptable here, especially
                     when humans are involved.
                     \_ Non-show quality, companion pets are usually neutered.
                        \_ It is too bad that the Nazis gave such a bad name
                           to eugenics. No, I am not being sarcastic here.
                           \_ If Hitler hated the Jews so much, he should have
                              have just NEUTERED them. By doing so, he would
                              have kept the Jew scientists to make THE BOMB
                              while satisfying his goals of 1) decreasing
                              the Jews population 2) winning the war.
                              Thank God Hitler wasn't too smart to figure
                              it out.

                                 human beings were used in the camps was cheap

           small busted women with straight black hair, who would be

           no one can define."  And some people wonder why psychologists
           are not respected in the field of science.

                 are priced out of the market, concentration of wealth

5/15    What's a good city with the convenience of a city (walkable
        retails, grocery, easily accessible clean young women) and the
        luxury of a suburbia (new, nice big homes, private, quiet, safe)?
        Does such a place actually exist?
        \_ If you can afford a penthouse in Manhattan or Wilshire in LA
           you'll have a huge place (3500sqft and more) that's quiet, safe,
           and is close to retails and people (young women).
           \_ If you can afford a penthouse in Manhattan or Wilshire in LA,
              you don't have to be close to young women.  Young women will come
              to you.
        \_ Never heard of such a place.  Closest would perhaps be loft
           housing in a city.
        \_ Every city has places like that, but you have to be rich to
           afford to live there. See Pacfic Heights.
        \_ Vancouver was the closest I've seen to what you describe. They
           are also in the middle of building a light rail system between
           downtown and the airport.
        \_ My home in Fremont is 10min-walk from 99 Ranch and some restaurants.
           It's 1500sqft and it's probably worth $600k now.  Don't know about
           accessibility of clean young women.
           \_ Seconded. Walkable, close to mass transit, great dim-sum,
              and lots of young & super hot HK women (and wealthy too).
        \_ My home in Fremont is 10min-walk from 99 Ranch, Walgreens,
           Albertson's and some restaurants.  It's 1500sqft and it's probably
           worth $600k now.  Don't know about accessibility of clean young
           worth $600k now.  Don't know about accessibility of white young
           \_ I'm glad you like Fremont but the positive things you pointed
              out are not unique to suburbs. Like all the other suburbs
              it is nice and quiet but it just doesn't match the convenience
              of a real city.
              \_ Many homes in the Sunset and Richmond districts in SF are not
                 walkable to grocery stores or restaurants.
                 \_ This is not really true, in that there is no place in
                    the Sunset that is more than 1 mile from a restaurant.
                    But some places are pretty far, so far that walking to
                    your grocery store is not really an option. But everyplace
                    in the Sunset and Richmond has a bus within a few blocks.
                    The Richmond is actually very well served by retail, by
                    the way.
        \_ generally economics prevent retail and 'new big homes'.
           single-family homes don't provide the population density for retail
           places to be profitable within walking distance, for  a reasonable
           definition of 'walking distance'.
        \_ Cupertino
           \_ Far from mass transit. Too insulated, you don't meet hot
              young women. You can't walk to grocery and other retails.
              Cupertino has all the great amenities of a suburb but it
              does not have the convenience of a big city.
              \_ Safeway is like less than 1 mile from my house and
                 Target/Trader Joes/AMC Saratoga are like 1.5 miles
                 from my house as is the Cupertino Library and a bunch
                 of food places on De Anza and Stevens Creek. Generally
                 I can get around w/ my bike and there is plenty of bus
                 \_ Yeah but it's not nice to walk/bike around. Busy
                    wide streets and typical huge parking lots. De Anza
                    is not walkable at all.
                    \_ This is a point worth emphasizing; a walking district
                       isn't just "services within walking distance."  A street
                       isn't a walking district just because it's not far from
                       a WalMart; when you walk in an urban walking district,
                       you interact with community members and shop owners,
                       see unexpected things, and get pleasure from the
                       simple act of walking.  Walking on big streets to
                       big box stores where you buy stuff on auto-pilot and
                       do self-checkout does not replace urban living.  -tom
                       \_ Narrow minded. Stupid. Or both.
                          You completely failed to realize that most of the
                          patriotic Americans do not want or care about
                          interactions with strangers and bums in the city,
                          and all the inconveniences that go with urban
                          living like pollution, drugs, crimes, etc. People
                          value safety, privacy, and better quality of
                          living (more living space, newer environment,
                          cleaner) over all those things you mentioned.
                          \_ Spoken steeped in suburban privilege.  You
                             are clearly too short for this discussion.
           \_ HAHAHAHAHA... thanks for the good laugh...
        \_ You do understand you are asking for contradictory things, right?
           Walkable with close retail implies high density, while private
           with big homes implies low density.

        \_ The difference is actually pretty huge. I rarely went condomless
           before marraige and it is nice to not have to anymore.
        \_ Why are you framing this question for married men? Also, I am

           on hormones. Maybe they should consider vasectomies. I fail to

                 issues with the pill. Not a problem for the Hooters girl you
                 want to bang. A big problem if it's your wife and you care
                 about her health.
           \_ Vasectomies are cool if you don't want any more kids again ever,
              but they're not a reversible form of contraception.  Condoms,

3/1     While we're talking about sex, I just want to give you a datapoint:
        I've been having bareback sex for many years and have not gotten
        any girl pregnant. The secret is knowing WHEN not to have sex.
        \_ "bareback" usually refers to gay sex, or butt-sex, so, maybe
            it's not too surprising you haven't gotten anyone pregnant?
            \_ Have you heard of a BBBJ? What do you think the "BB" is
               referring to?
               \_ I never heard this before.  What's BBBJ?  BareBackBlowJob?

               rythym method (including taking temperature regularly, etc etc)
               test subjects had less unwanted pregnancies than with most
               other forms of birth control.  That being said it's kind of
               a pain in the ass to follow the full method and does
               require training.

12/26   1/6 women are victims of [attempted] rape, compared to 1/33 for men.
        Wow, never realized that it's that high:
        \_ I don't think it is.  They cite the U.S. Department of Justice
           for their statistics, so here's some data from them:
           According to that, in 2005 there were about 115,000 rapes or
           attempted rapes (including verbal threats) of women in the U.S.
           age 12 and over.  Even assuming each one of those was a different
           victim, which seems unlikely, that's a maximum of 0.09% of women
           who can be victims each year.  That can't possibly add to one
           in six (17%) over a lifetime.
           Also, the article says "experts say men are far less likely to
           report a rape to authorities".  But according to the USDOJ the
           reporting rates are nearly equal, at least if you lump together
           rape and sexual assault:
           They estimate a 36% reporting rate for men and 38% for women.

8/22    I went to a doctor and she misdiagnosed my case. Luckily my second
        doctor found the problem and I was given the right treatment. A few
        months later I had the problem again and went to see a doctor, but
        unfortunately they gave me the first doctor again. Once again she
        quickly jumped into the same conclusion and I pointed out that her
        first diagnosis was wrong, afterwards she became very upset, defended
        her decision with a long tirade, and finally insulted me with comments
        like how someone like me could question her authority, after she
        went through all the trouble in medical school to get her hard earned
        MD.  What's the best way to expose her incompetency and bitchiness?
        \_ I can't help you here but I don't have much respect for doctors
           myself. While there are touching stories of doctors who volunteer
           their personal time to help others, two of my friends are now
           MDs and I can tell you that they have serious attitude problems.
           Ever since I've known them as a child, they have always had
           very assertive personalities, so much to a point that they
           can be described as being overly aggressive and unapologetic.
           Both of my friends have this sense of entitlement -- they've made
           it so people must respect their authority. It seems to me that
           in the old days, Doctors cared about the people. But these days,
           they're simply trying to get through as many patients as possible.
           Young doctors working with modern healthcare systems seem to be
           the worst doctors.
           \_ Oh, how I long for The Good Old Days when doctors cared, gas was
              cheap and women were hot, easy, but not at all slutty, oh no.
              Newflash: doctors were always just people and a lot of people
              just suck.  Women were always like this.  And gas is about the
              same price now as it always was in gallons/value.  This doctor
              isn't going out of business because the medical insurance
              system provides very little and usually no choice in who you
              go to for medical care.  The invisible hand only applies to
              situation with competition.  I see my primary care physician
              as nothing more than a referal service I pay $15 to send me to
              someone off her list who might actually know something.  She
              doesn't actually seem to know anything or really care that much.
              \_ what is your metric for saying gas price hasn't changed
                 in terms of gallons/value?
        \_ This is a free market. If she's really that bad, her patients will
           stop going to her. In another word the invisible hand force will
           take her out of the free market without your intervention.
           \_ great schtick
           \_ It's not that easy because such a high percentage of
              doctors are like that.  They'll just find another job,
              or the healthcare system will just throw new patients at
              them, who don't know better to complain.  The basic
              attitude I've encountered is, "I don't know what your
              problem is (and I know everything), so it must be all in
              your head.  Here, take some prozac and come back for
              more when you run out."
              I used to have Kaiser.  I never used it for years so I
              didn't know anything about it, but when I needed it, it
              was as worthless as a piece of dirt on the ground.  No,
              it was worse than that, because my life wouldn't depend
              on a piece of dirt on the ground.  I went through 5
              different Kaiser doctors (3 in this area and 2 in San
              Diego area) and except for one, they were completely
              useless.  The one that seemed to care doesn't really
              count because I only saw him on the way to San Diego
              under a personal emergency of sorts.  As far as I was
              concerned, there was only one way, which was to switch
              to PPO and find my own doctor who is willing to admit
              that s/he doesn't know everything.  Even PPO didn't help
              that much financially because they wouldn't pay for
              "experimental" treatments.  I have no direct proof, but
              I believe I would have killed myself by now if it
              weren't for the "experimental" treatment, which I had to
              work hard to find.  I'm still somewhat messed up (have
              slight tendency of autoimmunity), but at least I'm
              living a productive life.  In case anyone cares,
              environmental poisoning is not 100% reversible, so drink
              clean water and don't eat stuff that may have bad stuff
              in it (e.g. large carnivorous fishes and whales --
