7/26    So rich Korean/Chinese/Taiwanese/Singapore single lonely dude all
        mail orders pretty Vietnamese girls, what about Vietnamese
        dude?? What the hell do they do? ;)
        \_ Mail-order from Laos?
        \_ Please don't lump Singapore with males chauvinist countries like
           USA, China, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, etc.  Singapore doesn't have a sex
           ratio problem:
            at birth: 1.08 male(s)/female
            under 15 years: 1.07 male(s)/female
            15-64 years: 0.95 male(s)/female

            total population: 0.96 male(s)/female (2005 est.)
           \_ Many boys die while growing up?
                \_ that's the same everywhere.  go check at:
                   http://www.indexmundi.com -> country -> people -> sex ratio
            \_ Men have higher mortality for a bunch of reasons, military
               service, more likely to be involved in violent crime, more
               likely to take stupid risks for fun, etc etc.
                \_ more likely to write on the motd

8/23    Can we discuss Olympics instead of American politics?  American
        politics is so boring.
        \_ we japanese so superior tos us slavery breed hip hop track
           field star!  Go china
        \_ we koreans got cheated!  You americans and the judges robbed us
                \_ China beat korea PKR ping-pong!  Take that, jap stooges
           \_ This is just payback for Roy Jones Jr. in Seoul in '88
           \_ I think we should return to the original rules of the ancient
              Greek olympics, where the judges were allowed to enter the
              \_ So can the wrestlers eye-gouge?
                 \_ Of course.  And I think the routine animal sacrifices should
                    make a comeback as well.
              \_ Will nudity be optional of mandatory?
                 \_ Mandatory of course.  We must be fair.  But I think we
                    should allow women to compete.
              \_ Man, guys with short pensises would certainly have the
                 advantage there.
                 \_ You see!  Further proof of superior japanese race!
                    \_ That and h@t 4s1aN Ch1x@r!!!1!1!1@!
        \_ Who's the name of the shooting guy who lost the gold medal because
           he fired his last shot at someone else's target by mistake?
           \_ lucky he wasn't fighting in Iraq.  Otherwise it's another
              casualty by friendly fire.

3/22    What are you all you Bush defenders going to do when it turns
        out that he lied to us all to drag into an unjust war?
        \_ I don't care what reason we gave in '03.  It should've gone like
           this in '91.  His father is the one who committed the crime.  The
           son is fixing it 12 years later.  Works for me.
           \_ Oh wow, so now any country can invade any other country
              based on a crime committed sometime in its history.
              \_ No.  Any country can and always has been able to invade
                 another country based solely on the ability to do so.  What
                 planet have you been living on where someone else's permission
                 was required?
        \_ Removing Saddam is justified by any measure.  However, if
           Bush lied to do so, then fuck him, I say.  Fuck him right
           out of office.
           \_ Gee, who do you think is a more likely liar, Bush or Hussein?
              \_ Probably both.
           \_ whether it's justified or not, the more important concerns
              are of sovereignty and international law
                \_ LOSERS of wars don't have sovereignty, dumbass.
                   \_ Oh, I see, law of the jungle eh?
                      \_ On *this* planet, between nations, yes.  If I go into
                         your house and shoot your ass there are police and the
                         rest of the legal system to apprehend and punish me in
                         some way.  If my country invades your country and
                         yours is too weak to stop it, then your country is a
                         footnote in history.  There are more dead countries,
                         kingdoms, empires, etc in the history books than
                         currently exist on the planet.  When this changes you
                         can let us know.
                \_ the bush administration has decided abiding by
                   international law and the UN is for SUCKAH PUNKS.
                   this may lead to a few misunderstandings with
                   a few other countries in the very near future.
                   \_ What is international law?  People keep using that
                      word without really thinking about what it might mean.
                      Is it backed by some principle, or is it just arrived
                      at by consensus of participating countries?  I, for one,
                      wouldn't want a consensus of mostly nasty countries
                      determining what my country could or could not do.
                      \_ I really love when the lefties get upset that the US
                         is in violation of Kyoto, the land mine ban and a few
                         other treaties we never ratified or even signed in
                         some cases and then pretend we're in violation of some
                         mythical "international law".
                         \_ Most ppl get upset that the US failed to ratify
                            treaties that seem to be in the interest of
                            humanity at large for short-sighted business
                            reasons.  Find me a reasonable rationale for
                            failing to ratify Kyoto, landmine, and chemical
                            weapons treaties.
                            \_ Kyoto: it's based on junk science and doesn't
                               put real limits on China, India and other 3rd
                               world nations that can easily out pollute us in
                               a few short years.  Landmines: they'd want us to
                               pull up the mines in the DMZ between N/S Korea.
                               Chemical weapons: we've got a shitload of the
                               stuff and destroy it as fast as the plants will
                               run.  What's your problem with that?  Most "ppl"
                               run at the mouth based on ignorance and don't
                               have a clue what they're talking about beyond
                               what NPR told them to think.
                      \_ You usually do not invade a sovereign nation under
                         international law.  The legal basis for invading
                         Iraq depends on UN resolutions after the war in
                         1991 started by Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.  Here is
                         an Economist article about its legality:
                          \_ Why not?  What if the country is nasty?  Are you
                             willing to let people under a nasty regime suffer
                             because of the principle of sovereign immunity?
                             I think people's lives and happiness are more
                             \_ If every country felt this way, there would be
                                no end to the wars. Think about it for a
                                second:  the Christian countries would all
                                want to invade everyone else to "save" them.
                                The Muslim countries the same. All in the name
                                of "happiness." [formatd. again for you.]
                                \_ No end to wars?  There will always be wars
                                   so long as there are limited resources,
                                   people disagree with each other, or religion
                                   still exists.  I think it's cute that you
                                   believe wars will somehow magically end if
                                   every country was just happily isolationist.
                                   Are you a GO PAT! GO! follower?
         \_ watch out! more imaginary missles incoming!
         \_ laugh as he continues to keep FERC from stopping his energy
            company buddies from raping California.
                \_ Oh really?
