11/14   Ever since I started watching "The Gilmore Girls", I've been having
        mother/daughter sex fantasies.  Is that normal?  Doing it with my
        GF AND her mom.  HOT!
        \_ Go see "The Graduate".
        \_ So you really mean it when you tell your GF to "come here to Daddy".
        \_ You watched the Gilmore Girls more than once?
        \_ Gilmore Girls obviously causes deviant sexual behavior. We ought
           to boycott the show. I feel for you. It's not your fault that you
            are not normal.
           \_ are they both good looking in your opinion?

        I've never seen Britney being that big before.  Is that her nipple
        being seen-thru on her left side?
        \_ No.  It isn't.  If you want to see nude celebs the net is full of
           free and pay celeb porn sites.  You don't have to get off on the
           very iffy sighting of what might be a nipple poking through the
           thick material on this one girl's costume.
        \_ You, my dear friend, are trying too hard.
        \_ Anyone knows her measurements?  Thx.
          \_ Would that be pre- or post-op?

10/31   English-dubbed hentai sucks ass
        \_ watching LA Blue Girl again?
           \_ Trying to. The dub makes it almost like work.
              \_ alien tentacles and pussy juice power. what more do you
                 need to understand?
                 \_ I don't think I need to expand upon the
                    superior quality of the orgasmic moaning in the
                    original Japanese...
                    \_ don't forget the rapid high-pitched intakes of breath
                       \_ Oh yeahh. That's the stuff.
                    \_ Does the main girl ever get any from a human? Those
                       tentacles must chafe
            \_ Oh yes, YES.  You don't really want someone as big as I am to
               pull out, do you?
               \_ Oh christ -- is the dubbing THAT bad?
            \_ I noticed recently that my boss has the same shape hair as the
               doctor in Oh Genki Clinic - nasty mixed methaphor, that.
        \_ Forgive my ignorance, but what is hentai?
           \_ japanese anime porn.
           \_ hentai is the japanese word for "pervert" and has come to mean
              the porn (usually extreme porn) subset of japanese anime
              (still and animated)
              \_ isn't anime originally a French word?

10/25   new poll: how many sodans have paid for sex? (and no, gf's and so's
        don't count):
        Yes: ...(...)
        No:  ...
        No, but I plan to:
        Paid, by not having sex: .
        \_ So you pay for the evening's entertainment with your date, and at
           the end of it you have sex (with her, of course --duh!) -- does
           that count as having 'paid for sex'.
           \_ does not count. no dates.
        \_ how about if you (foolishly) marry a woman (withouth a prenup), and
           she dumps you and takes HALF.  does that count too?
           \_ does not count. no so's.
           \_ Yes. - BDG (Bitter Divorced Guy) #1 Fan
        \_ silly rabbit.  you *always* pay for sex.  just sometimes the
           method of payment isn't immediately obvious.  furthermore, i'll
           claim that it's better when the medium of exchange is money,
           because it leads to fewer problems later.
           \_ true, but irrelevant the poll rules out conventional forms
              of gf/so sex for money relationships.
           \_ Amen to that!
           \_ Yup.  "Free sex is the most expensive."
           \_ This is a common misperception. I have had plenty of brief
              relationships and one night stands that I did not have to
              "pay for." And I have had plenty that I did. The key is to
              weed out the psychos. Unfortunately, this is hard to do.
              \_ what is a psycho
        \_ the poll question specifically excluded gf's & so's, and should
           have excluded dates and one-night stand types. Obviously, the
           points you all bring up are true.  The poll, however, was
           interested in the legal definition of "prostitution," rather than
           the informal gf/so type sex for money relationships ppl have

10/24   Where is Lila Patton working now? It says on her web site that
        she quit Veritas on 5/01.
        \_ Good to see you back, kevin.
        \_ Why not just email her and ask her?  Judicial restraining order?
           \_ I think he doesn't want to be labeled a stalker.
           \_ I did, she ignored me                             -kevin
              \_ maybe you should leave out the "i love you, will you marry
                 me..." part, and she might reply.
              \_ Since when has that stopped you?
              \_ Maybe that should be a big hint?
                 \_ No. I'm not trying to stalk her or anything.  Just
                   \_ What about Alcatraz and San Pablo?
                   \_ sodan poll:  How many here have paid for sex?
                      and gf's/wives do not count as "paying..."
                        Yes: .
                        No, but I've wanted to:
                    want to get back in contact with her.  I miss her. -kevin
        \_ Dwight and San Pablo
                \_ I find after 2:00 am to be best, more searching but
                   the least LE presence.

10/8    anyone been to one of those SF clubs like Mitchell Brothers?
        Is it fun or worth it? Just wondering, got some buds coming
        in for the weekend...
        \_ $100 cover.
        \_ are you interested in hot chicks or lots of physical contact for
           the dollar or stripper sex? Deja Vu and Mitchell Brothers are
           expensive, but quality. Crazy Horse and other places on market
           have cheap ho's, but they'll rub you until you're done for a $40.
        \_ Gold Club on Howard & 4th Street. It's affordable, so to speak.
           Cover charge may be $10 but if you print out coupons from
           <DEAD><DEAD> and show up before 10pm, you get in for free.
           Lap dance is $20, and they seem to go the extra mile if the mood
           is right. It's cheaper than any of those clubs on Broadway, IMO.
           \_ How much to get them in the mood?
              \_ Mood can't be bought. You can pay them extra, but then you
                 aren't getting the "good deal" that makes the lap dance extra
        \_ Any such clubs in the South Bay? Silicon Valley?
            \_ Dunno much about South Bay but what about Pink Poodle?
            \_ Brass Rail, T's Cabaret, Pink Poodle, Kit Kat Club, Candid Club.
               Table dances so no contact.  Some are nude some are bikini.
        \_ What is the deal with the place next to the Sunnyvale train
           station that charges you $20 to get in and $20/drink? Some
           cute girl comes up and talks to you while you drink it, but
           there is no lap dancing or anything like that going on.
           \_ Hostess bar?

           \_ Far more than cute. She's smoking.

9/15    You have heard that it was said, "Love your neighbor and hate your
        enemy."  But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who
        persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.  He
        causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on
        the righteous and the unrighteous.  If you love those who love you,
        what reward will you get?  Are not even the tax collectors doing
        that?  And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing
        more than others?  Do not even pagans do that?  Be perfect, there-
        fore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.  - the lord

9/11    "We heard earlier that Barbara Olson, a frequent commentator here, was
        on the flight that was going to Washington -- or has been hijacked to
        Washington. She called her husband and said that the hijacking was
        under way.

        She said that from what she could tell, the hijackers -- and she
        didn't indicate how many except that there was more than one -- were
        armed with just knives and cardboard cutters, that they herded all the
        people on board this flight to the back of the plane, including the

        many of you will recall argued the post-election case before the

9/10    A friend of mine just spent a lot of money on a custom engagement ring.
        Sadly, last week his girlfriend broke up with him, and he doesn't know
        what to do with the ring.  It's a very personal design that his
        girlfriend asked for long ago (although she doesn't know that he had it
        made), so if he sold it off, she'd probably get really upset.  Besides,
        he's not even sure he can sell it because it's a very unique design.
        Anybody have any good ideas what to do with the ring?
       \- well is the issue about how to recoup some of the $? otherwise the
         only "ethical" question seems to be "should he let her know". if she
         doesnt know, i dont see where there are any ethical issues at all
        unless it is "customized" in some really peculiar way. now if she is
        just going tobe irrationally mad, i dunno if that really creates an
       obligation but that is an interesting meta-question [see e.g. the
         problem if the "utility monster"]. ok tnx. --psb
        \_ why would she be upset if he sold it?
           \_ more to the point, why should he care? unless he's hoping
              they get back together
        \_ all women are bitches
              \_ in which case he wouldn't sell it
        unless it is "customized" in some really peculiar way. --psb
        \_ all men are bitches
        \_ all women are evil hos who are never satisfied. Isay prostitues
           are cheaper in the long run and less troublesome
        \_ etiquette is if the guy breaks it off, _she_ gets tokeep the ring
           and do whatever she wants with it.  etiquette is if the woman
           breaks it off, _he_ gets to keep the ring and do whatever he wants
           with it.  so, according to etiquette, he may do whatever he wants
           to do with it (trade it, sell it, demolish it, etc.)  --chris

8/30    where can i get indian porn movies?
        \_ Not possible. Indian's do not do such things.
           \_ The more you try to squelch something, the more likely it is
              to poke out from the seams, especially in a nation of
              over a billion people. Just look hard enough.

8/23    What is a proper reaction when you bump into an ex-GF with whom you
        had a nasty breakup?  (Or ex-BF).  I pretended that I didn't see her
        and walked right on and did not look at her.  There are probably
        different reactions in different situations:
        a)  I was walking alone and she was with a guy
            \_ I'd look at who she was with but not at her
        b)  I was with a girl and she was alone
            \_ not surprising to see no replies in this section.
               \_ Ask for a threesome.
        c)  I was with a girl and she was with a guy
            \_ same as (a).
        \_ ATTENTION BDG!  What would you do if you bumped into your ex-wife
           on the street?  -bdg's #1 fan
        \_You should grab her breasts instead of shaking her hand.
           \_ Sorry, you're not in Japan.
        \_ Don't be pathetic.  Smile, wave, say hi, get over youself already.
           Sheesh.  Did you learn anything growing up?  -aspo
           \_ There is this old saying: 'Man, to thyself be true.'  It applies
              in this case.  Most people dislike their ex-girlfriends.  I will
              not smile, or wave, or say hi to someone I do not like.  This
              isn't being immature, it is being true to myself.  You, aspolito,
              are a conniving little shit.  You are not true to yourself.
              \_ It's not an old saying, it's your incredibly poor
                 misquotation of Shakespeare, Hamlet Act I, Scene 3,
                        This above all: to thine ownself be true,
                        And it must follow, as the night the day,
                        Thou canst not then be false to any man.
                       are people so afraid to show their true feelings?
                 And, frankly, you seriously missed the point.
           \_ you know he's right. unless you want to remain an immature
              sodan geek with no social skills forever.
              \_ well, if it was a "nasty breakup" why should you smile and
                 wave? that's just being unrealistic.
                 \_ No, that's being cordial. Do you wear your heart on
                    your sleeve for everything?
                    \_ there's a difference between wearing your heart on your
                       sleeve and outright being false. i wouldn't do anything
                       in particular but i sure wouldn't put on some fake act.
                       the whole assumption here was that we're not friends,
                       presumably anti-friends, for some reason. the way people
                       put on fake acts for each other is such bullshit. why
                       are people so afraid to show their true feelings? i have
                       second thoughts about people who act one way in front of
                       someone and then different behind their back. it's kind
                       of like lying, morally.
                       \_ so why don't you sign your name, coward?  -tom
                          \_ why are you so interested in my name, fag?
                             \_ Well it sure is easy to be "honest" and
                                call people names when you hide behind
                                anonymity.  -tom
                       \_ So you'd rather that everyone who dislikes you
                          assaults you when they see you?  I'd prefer the
                          alternative where they pretend that they don't
                          want to beat me up, even though you think that's
                          "lying, morally".
                          \_ Maybe that's because you're a cowardly little shit.

8/15    I'm curious about alimony and child support.  In general how long
        does one pay these things?  I assume child support is up until the
        kid(s) are 18?  As for alimony?  You don't pay that for the rest of
        your life do you?  BDG?  Do you care to comment?  Thanks.
        \_ The comments posted below are true, provided you get a hearing
           in a court where the judge is interested in justice rather than
           promoting her communist lesbian feminazi agenda despite knowing
           that your ex-wife is a lying cheating heartless slut.
           In some states you can get stuck paying for a long time, until
           she gets married to some other poor dumb slob.
           And she will her quit her job before submitting the paperwork
           for a divorce so she can claim in court that you are her only
           source of income thus get a bigger and longer settlement. She
           will also add on charges of physical and mental abuse along
           with stories of your philandering in order to get more of your
           stuff, including assets which belonged to you before you two
           were married.
           Take my adivce, don't get married. If you do get married, get
           a prenup and make a good solid trust before you get married.
           And *WHEN* you get divorced, make sure who hire a better lawyer
           than she does. It doesn't matter that he costs $500/hr, its
           much cheaper than paying her way for the rest of your life.
            \_ He's back with us! Don't stay away so long next time!
               -- BDG #1 fan
               \_ Is BDG one person, or a set like-minded individuals?
               \_ I posted the other day, but I toned down the message
                  so you might have missed it.
        \_ It depends on the state.  In California, alimony is extremely
           rare; CA is a community property state, which means that any
           property acquired after the beginning of the marriage is owned
           50% by each party, and will be split that way after the divorce.
           Alimony only comes into play if one partner, for example,
           never had a career because she stayed home to take care of the
           kids.  Child support is negotiable, sometimes includes college,
           doesn't have to.  (Are you going to delete this, too, paolo?) -tom
           \_ tom, quit trolling me... 'nuff said, i leave you all to
              your "discussion." - paolo
              \_ Paolo are you "flaming" tom again?
           \_ My buddy got nailed with 12 months of alimony, 15 years
              of child support (ok, the latter was not 'nailed with').
           \_ Alimony is actually not rare in California, and does not have
                to do only with the reasons that Tom suggests. In general,
                a "standard of living" is created during a marriage. If,
                after a divorce, one party will be living at substantially
                below the married standard of living than alimony may be
                appropriate. For short term marriages (less than 10 years),
                alimony generally has a maximum length of 50% of the time
                span of the marriage, so if your buddy had a 2-year marriage,
                1 year of alimony was extremely appropriate, according to the
                law. If his marriage was longer, he got off easy.
                Knowledge is always a solution to ignorance. Go read
                "How to Do Your Own Divorce in California" by Nolo Press.

           themselves in some particular order in relation to the head
           table, we did it completely randomly.  the only table we
           intentionally placed anywhere was the parent's table.  that went
           right next to the head table.  nobody seemed to mind where they
           were sitting.  then again, you could have been at my wedding

                    that they dont want to do the actual work required
                    for high-paying jobs.
                 \_ I disagree.  I think the problem is that many women
                    are not encouraged to pursue EE/CS degrees and/or do
                    not know people who can tell them how much fun EE/CS
                    can be.  My fiance used to think that workin on a
                                \_ fiancee
                    computer all day would be really dull.  Then once she
                    started doing some small web and database work she
                    trying to learn programming on the job. -woman
                    \_ I disagree. Women are less intelligent and simply want
                        more for less work. -man
                        \_ "...more for less work."  Yes, this is
                           unique to women.  It is good you clarified this.
                    \_ Your fiance... she..  signed "woman"?  Where's the
                       lesbian wedding happening?
                 \_ on wonder you dont get laid
                    realized how much she liked programming.  Now she is
                    trying to learn programming on the job.
                    \_ The number of women who find programming interesting
                       is exteremely small. My mom used to be a AI researcher
                       and of 150 other people in her building only three of
                       the women were technical, all of the others were admin
                       staff and disliked computers and even refused to do
                       simple html web pages.
                       Personally I've know women who made better grades than
                       me in math and physics refuse to study engineering (esp.
                       ee/cs) because it was "too dull". They just didn't like
                       the sitting in your cube thinking and tinkering aspects
                       of coding. Almost all of them went to med school or bio
                       because there was more human interaction.
                       Men and women are different and like different types of
                       work. You cannot "encourage" women into a field they
                       don't want to work in.
                 \_ no wonder you dont get laid
                    \_ There are more things in heaven and earth than
                       are dreamt of in your dorm room

              dropouts are grads in non-engineering majors in key
              developement positions.

7/23    (I know this is a long shot, but I'll try.)  I happened to have tuned
        in to a TV channel some time over the past weekend when the program
        was featuring some short interviews of some porn stars.  (It's not the
        Howard Stern show.)  It was showing an Asian porn star with long hair
        followed by a Caucasian one.  I missed the name of the Asian star at
        the beginning, and I didn't catch the name of the program either.  Has
        anyone also watched that program, or know the name of the program or
        the name of the Asian star?  Any pointer is very much appreciated.
        Thanks very much in advance.
        She said something like she rarely (or was it "never") had sex outside
        of the industry, so it was like she saved everything up and then let
        it all come out when she started porn.  Something like that.  And she
        has big bosom and good-looking face.  There was one shot where she was
        wearing a white sweater and then another one wearing green bikini.  If
        all these help.
           \_ Not Asia Carrera nor Minka.  Different face.
              probably Saturday night.  But I'm still trying to recall the

           about what time, and do you have cable or not?
           \_ I live in Fremont and I have AT&T extended basic cable.  It was
              probably Saturday night.  It was a short while after I watched
              "Kingpin" on another channel.  But I'm still trying to recall the

           \_ She does great anal scenes.
              \_ Who woulda thunk someone so small could take so much.
                 \_ Yeah, it's fuckin'-a impressive.  And my goodness, she
                    deepthroats like you wouldn't belieeeeeve.

        \_ MTV had a thing on porn stars, but I don't think they've played
           this recently, and MTV makes sure you know you're watching MTV.

7/20    Is it appropriate to give a gift certificate as a wedding present
        instead of the actual items on the registry?
        \_ Get the groom something he really needs: a prenup. If
           someone else already got him that, get him the next
           best thing, pre-paid consultation with the most brutal
           and inhumane lawyer you can afford. Of all the gifts
           it will be the one that helps him the most later in
           his life.
           \_ Go bitter divorced guy, go!
              \_ Do you ever wonder if the bitter divorced guy's
                 story is just way too unbelieveable to be true?
                 Maybe he's just making it all up. Maybe he's
                 a she whose trying to keep the good men of the
                 csua from reporducing. Maybe I've watched one
                 to many XFiles eps.
              \_ Ever notice how most men wear black (or other
                 dark colors to weddings)? Its because men know
                 that marriage is a time of mourning. Yet another
                 innocent fool has lost his life to the beguiling
                 charms of a bloodsucking woman.
                 Notice how all the women are either happy or are
                 crying tears of joy. Its because they are overjoyed
                 that yet another woman was able to dupe a man who
                 will be stuck caring for her as long as he lives.
        \_ you know what's a really good wedding present? caller id.
           also known as inlaw identification.
           \_ a better present is the prenup suggested above. Inlaws
              can be handled, a wife suing for divorce because she
              says that your are a bigoted, wife beating, child
              molesting, spousal rapist dead beat cannot be handled
              without a good strong prenup and a vicious merciless

              \_ works for korean weddings too -- white envelopes.
                 money/cash is a very welcome gift -- either to pay wedding
                 bills, to spend on a honeymoon (my friend who is neither
                 jewish or asian loved the extra cash for her honeymoon), or
                 just to buy something that is not on a wedding
                 registry. --chris
                 \_ Cash is a welcome gift. The groom will need all
                    the money he can earn, beg, borrow or steal to
                    keep his wife happy, esp. after she sues for
                    divorce and he realizes that she is nothing but
                    a cold cruel opportunistic bitch.
        \_ Yes, but make sure you've been hinted for some nookie with one
           of the bridesmaids|groomsmen.

                \_ ask yermom
                \_ It's kinda like a cookie, but different...
        \_ I went to 10 weddings last year (2000 was wedding season) and I
           can tell you that yes, gift certs are very much appreciated when
           you want to veer away from the registry list. A lot of new couples
           set up registry for items that are nice-to-have, not must-have. With
           the gift cert, obviously they can get something they really want. It
           carries equal weight with the material gifts. - jthoms
              \_ So are these gift certs to go see a lawyer about a
                 postnup agreement? If not the gift certs were wasted.
                 And you went to 10 weddings? How did you stop yourself
                 from crying for all those poor men who threw away thier
                 lives, thier futures and thier fortunes?
           \_ well, in that case, what about giving cash? or checks? or PayPal
              \_ How much would you spend on a couple if the person is one
                 of your 5 closest friends?  $100?  $500?  $1000?
                 \_ all depends. If he has a house, lots of options and a
                    pretty wife I'd give him a $15 Mikasa vase. If he is poor
                    and his wife is ugly, I'd give him $500. Then of course
                    you gotta realize that when he gets married he will no
                    longer be your close friend.
                 \_ if it was a close friend I probably would just buy him/her
                 \_ As a bridesmaid, I spent close to $1000...and in those
                    instances, I gave cash gifts closer to $200.  For close
                    friends (where I was not a bridesmaid -- e.g., husband's
                    close friends or parents' close friends), I gave closer to
                    $500 cash/checks.  Thank goodness wedding season is coming
                    to a close for us.  Baby showers are next. -chris

           \_ Yup, this is the way to go.  Assuming you are in good standing,
           tell them you would like to be laid off as well.  It could work.

6/23    Do Berkeley guys aspire to "date up" to Stanford girls?
        \_ "Fuck Stanford." 'Nuff said.
        \_ Generically speaking, it can be (somewhat correctly) said that
           girls like 'ruff 'n' tuff guys, not pretty boys. Guys like
           pretty girls. So Farm girls go for Cal guys, and Cal guys go for
           Stanfud girls.
           \_ And Stanfurd guys go for sheep.
              \_ hey, Danny Pintauro isn't representative of all
                 Stanford guys
              \_ I know one Stanfurd guy (never graduated) who (used to?)
                 goes for a UCLA sorority girl
        \_ Is this true across all demographics and ethnicities?
                \_ It is true to some degree. Economists, sociologists
                   and others have found that a) men tend to marry
                   down, b) women tend to marry up and c) "up" and "down"
                   can be defined in various ways: more education,
                   ethnicity, occupational status, etc. These are
                   statistical findings, so they reflect population
                   averages rather than absolute rules. -fab
                   \_ I'm not asking interracial, just for various ethnicities
                      Because the above aspiration is opposite of what you
                      gave as more general tendencies of the population.
                      You are saying it's true but then give examples to
                      prove it untrue. I want to know if, i.e. European UCB
                      guys aspire to date up to Stanfurd girls as much as lets
                      say Asian guys want to date up to Stanfurd girls. And
                      same vice-versa.
                      say Asian guys want to date up to Stanfurd girls. But
                      perhaps more importantly now that I think about
                      it, vice-versa. Do S girls like to date down to UCB guys.
                   \_ Informal observation suggests that Asian girls/White
                    guys is much more common than Asian guys/White girls.
                    This is at UCB and confirms the Girl up/Guy down theory
                    since being White is in general a more prestigious
                         \_ WTF? Im sorry, but you're an idiot. Are you
                            from the 50's? Do you think asian women do nothing
                            but idolize white men? asian women and white males
                            are a frequent occurance at UCB, but so what beyond
                            \_ Actually to me it seems like it's 50-50
                               asian/asian, white male/asian female couples
                               in L.A., at least the ones that I see in
                               public. -jctwu
                    category. If you crossed ethnicity with school -
           \_ you're on crack. i'm going to get me a dumb ho from kobe.
                    Asian S girls v. W UCB boys, then it's unclear how much,
                    on the average , ethnicity outwieghs school prestige.
                    My hunch is that if you break Asian down (Chinese, Korean,
                    Indian, etc) then ethnicity outweighs UCB vs. Stanford,
                    you would get the classical F Up/M down according to
                    ethnicity. -fab
                    \_ The opposite is true wrt blacks/whites. Black guys date
                       white/Asian girls, but black girls usually date black
                       guys. So that either is a counterexample, or implies
                       that black > white wrt prestige.
                    \_ Not asking interracial. Euro-on-Euro. Or Asian-on-Asian.
           \_ yes. it's categorically true with no allowance for individual
              deviations. it's tautological and apodeictic.

           *Cal guys go for Stanford girls (they're prettier)
           *Stanford girls go for Cal guys (they're real guys)
           *Stanford guys go for sheep (as proven above)

        \_ Women do that all the time. But they often won't respect a

        \_ Women date up.  Men date down.  It all works out.
              \_ that kind of attitude means that the dynamic will never

        \_ I just had sex last night, but didnt come.
           That guy should learn some control.
           \_ you are obviously a girl though.
              \_ girls are on soda?
                 \_ This response does get old after awhile, y'know.

                                yer not missing out _/
                       supposed to have accounts on soda. I suspect that
                       the accounts were create by root in the days before
                       psb in order to keep the poor geeks hopeful.
                       The motd posts signed by women are obviously

                           confirmed sightings of soda females at past
                           general meetings or in the distant history when
                           the volleyball court was regularly used.

                              Can we really trust these sources?
                              Since most sodans have never seen these
                              so called "girls", it is safe to assume
                              that they are a figment of a distrubed
                              mind. And if these "girls" exist, how
                              come we never get a chance to date them?
                              What is the point of allowing "girls" to
                              use soda if these "girls" can't be put

        This explains everything.
        \_ There's a flaw in that guy's argument.  First he claims the girl
           just have to be beautiful and be able to carry on an intelligent
           conversation (but not necessarily above MENSA cutoff), then he
           proceeds to look for people 2 std higher in beauty and (of those
           2 stds higher in beauty) 1 std higher in intelligence.  Given
           that most of the mass of the Gaussian concentrates around its
           mean, this means his criterion of beauty and intelligence is
           extremely stringent.  No wonder he can't find a girlfriend.
           He's looking for a supermodel with a PhD.
           \_ You think there are 18,000 supermodels with PhDs in the States?
              \_ For a particular definition of supermodel and a particular
                 definition of PhD, yes.

5/16    What is the proper closing salutation when you write a letter,
        email, or greeting card to a friend of the opposite sex? When
        a girl (not a significant other) writes to me they usually end
        with a "love" or a picture of a heart. But I heard that it's
        inappropriate for guys to do that to girls and you should just
        end with a "Sincerely," or "your friend,". Any thoughts?
        \_ If she ends in "love," I do the same.
        \_ love, (don't forget the comma)

           \_ Hopefully, yes. "Yours" seems like a medieval degenration
              similar  to "thank you" -> thanks.
              "Yours [truely, sincerely, flatulently,...]"
        \_ really depends on the level of formality and frequency of
           writing.  "take care," "later," "sincerely," or any number
           could work, depending.

5/14    Proof that women are evil:
        \_ women != time x money. it would be time + money, right?
           unless the money spent is proportional to the time spent.
           but even then it would be time + (money x time), which would
           mean girls are evil + time/money. but where does sex factor
           into the equation?
           \_ sex = time * money => girls = sex.
           \_ if your brain really works like this, then nowhere, 'cos you're

5/6     why are men into different parts of women, such as breasts,
        butt, stomach?  advertising? biology?
        \_ notice the top of the breasts and the butt are similar in nature.
           Also, body shape is important because it signals a woman
           is fertile and healthy.  Also, the woman has two lips (one
           on the face, one lower).  Why can lipstick be so alluring?  Well,
           during heat, the woman's "lower lip" becomes red.  I watched some
           of this on the TLC/Discovery channel.
        \_ Its all about mating. Once you get over the mating bit,
           you see that these things are not that important.  Civilized
           human beings understand that the body is a perishible thing
           and any attachment to its beauty is the result of ignorance.
        \_ Butt is not important. Only breasts (too small == no fun),
           stomach (too big == no fun) and pussy (too small == no fun,
           too big == no fun) are important. The face isn't important
           either, you can always put a bag over her head. - #1 mac daddy
           \_ So if she had perfect tits, stomach and pussy but was ugly as
              hell and had a 300 lbs ass you'd like that?
              \_ Okay, big ass == no fun. But ugly face is okay, just put
                 a bag over her head. - #1 mac daddy
                 \_ flat or too small ass == no fun either.
                    \_ flat or too small is still doable, fat ass is
                       undoable. - #1 mac daddy
                       \_ sure it is. you just have to be in the right mindset.
                          cast off your pop culture worldview. i used to think
                          like you, but months spent staring at this one chubby
                          teacher and this other chubby t.a. changed me. it
                          needs to be healthy looking fat though, not waddling
                          sweaty folding fat.
                          \_ Yeah, you stick to the ugly, uh I mean healthy,
                             fat chicks and I'll screw the good ones. - #1 mac
                       \_ u not #1 mac daddy. Real mack know worth of big

        \_ For some weird reason this troll just didn't work.  Is the motd
           becoming too blase?
           \_ how is it not working?  What kind of responses were you
              \_ It's due to the patriarchial fetishizing and the economic
                 exploitation of womens bodies. Not just T&A, but eyes, hair,
                 lips, feet, toes, teeth, earlobes, small of the knee
                 that bear the objectifying male gaze.
                 \_ Get thee to the kitchen, wench, and fetch me a beer.
                 \_ Yeah yeah like women don't objectify men.  Not to say that
                    two wrongs makes a right or anything but this isn't a one
                    way trip.  Women are not virginal innocents just waiting
                    to be exploited.  I know you're not being serious but this
                    was crying out to be said.  Any of you geek boys wonder why
                    you don't get laid?  Because women make judgement calls on
                    men's appearance, too.  Take a shower.
                    \_ I know what you mean. I just hate it when women at
                       parties are eyeing me checking out my package and making
                       comments about my cute tight butt. It gets especially
                       bad when they start groping me after they get a few
                       drinks in them. It's like considered "OK" to do that
                       because they are women and i'm a guy.  I feel sooo used.
                        \_ No, more like they stand around the women's bathroom
                           talking about how little your penis is compared to
                           their last date but you've got a job so it's ok for
                           now until she finds a man.

4/27    When judging women, what is more important to you: face, body, brain,
        and personality.  Give percentages in that order -like 30/30/20/20
        \_ a girl can be a 10 in each category, but my decision is based
        on these percentages. 40/30/30/10 (but she has to be a 10 in each)
        \_ I only go for the best: 100/100/100/100/100.  My woman has to be
           5x any other woman could be!
           \_ Why would a woman like that date a troll like you?
           \_ Too bad a women like that would not date you.
                \_ Both of you are stupid.  It was a joke, kid, see?  A joke.
                   Let me explain for the "specially gifted" among us today:
                   since we're dealing with percentages, the total must add
                   to 100.   Now maybe you can take the next small step on
                   your own.  Test is on Monday and will be graded based on
                   your increased level of self esteem.
        \_ don't forget, "and asian".  10/10/30/30/20
        \_ "I am not paying you to talk."
        \_ 10/80/0/0 -- figured little brain is like no brain at all. And no
        brianers are easier to get.  Use most of the stats for the important
        stuff first because it's always easy to get other no brainers when
        I can't deal with the personality no more. hahaha
        \_ 20/40/10/30/0
        \_ 20/50/0/20/10  (Of course I don't mean she can be mentally
           challenged.)  -- Asian
           \_ So you're willing to go out with a girl with Chelsea Clinton's
              face, the body of Anna Kornakova, the brains of George W. Bush,
              and the personality of Al Gore? You must have some low standards
              \_ Not the body of Kornakova.  I'm thinking more along the line
                 of Cindy Margolis and Aria Giovanni.  (Neither have implants,

                        \_ I guess all this breast fetish totally degrades women
                           and overlooks the power of a good smile and nice eyes
                           \_ If you like the face more than the body,
                              put your points there.  Not everyone likes
                              your ideal woman.  Pig.
                           \_ If you are *DUMB* enough to fall for a girl just
                              because she has a good smile and nice eyes, you
                              deserve to get taken to the cleaners in divorce
                              court. Your wife and her boyfriend will by might

              \_ I don't think that most guys care that they are dating
                 a rich or a poor girl. Abilities in bed are probably
                 orders of magnitude more important.
                 \_ I'd date a rich girl over a poor girl if her daddy had more
                    real wealth than I was likely to have.

        \_ wouldn't know; my wife's Japanese.  -erikred
        \_ Most sodans are asian and hence prefer asian girls. I personally

              \_ I said most not all. You are the exception not the rule.
                 Though most sodans prefer asian girls, they don't actually

                      \_ The number of times you see your wife?
        \_ Now those are 3 words you don't see often in Berkeley EECS.
           \_ If i remember correctly, there are a decent number of Asian
              women in EECS.

                         \_ BOOT TO THE HEAD!!!
           \_ well, taken by itself, Asians would be predominant in EECS,
              girls would be a minority, and "nice" depends on your
              point of view.

                 even said it's okay to go to church for that purpose, although

        Which story is more reflective of porn $ on the Internet today?
        \_ Both.  The latimes is human interest drivel.  The zdnet one is
           about cold hard facts.  Put them together and it reads that the
           money making sites are stoked at the cheap high quality talent
           they can now recruit from Hollywood and ex-dotcoms.  This influx
           of talent will drive out the lesser talent from the online porn
           industry and allow porn sites to make better sites for less.  This
           is important because as the zdnet article said, customer numbers
           are flat or declining but this is also seasonal as the zdnet article
           says.  It comes down to too many porn sites and not enough workers
           at dotcoms available to surf that many anymore.  I read somewhere
           else that there were 75,000 dotcom layoffs in the last few months.

           interesting to say except the stock market, his marriage, his
           mortgage and his yard work.
        \_ I ran into my best friend from elementary school at Cal, whom I had
           not seen since the sixth grade.  It turned out, though, that we
           no longer had anything in common. --jameslin
        \_ I had a good friend in 3rd grade at my elementary school in Culver
           City (near Santa Monica). I moved away to the suburbs and started
           to lose touch with him. A few months after I moved, I had a big
           birthday party and invited all my old friends. We were at some
           playground and we got in a fight about someting dumb and I
           completely lost touch with him after that day.
           Ten years later when I was a freshman at Cal, I made a good friend
           from Palos Verdes. One day she said a friend from high school was
           coming to visit. I remembered my old friend talking before that his
           family was thinking of moving there, so I asked her for his name.
           Sure enough, it was him. He came to visit and we hung out quite a
           bit. It was fun but we didn't bother to keep in touch.
        \_ Knew some folks when I was in HS (they went to a different school).
           I went to Cal.  They didn't.  One of them had business here late
           last year.  We met up, had dinner, everything was just like it
           always was.  Very cool.  We didn't keep in touch after that.  I
           guess there's only so much you can talk about from 10 years earlier.

              \_ That's such TERRIBLE advice.  Why can't you just tuck
                 in your dick for a couple more months and leave your
                 work relationship intact?  There are so many girls
                 out there, why your project partner?  At least wait
                 till after the final.
              \_ Wait till finals are over and you get a passing grade
                 (I already know you won't get a good grade because you
                  are spending more time thinking about your partner than
                  your project, don't lie you are).
                 If you start going out and it doesn't work out, she will
                 shaft you on the project. If you think that she won't do
                 that, because she's worried about her grades, think AGAIN.

           thereby asking indirectly.
        \_ ask her for a proj. celebration dinner (or whatever stage your proj
           is in). Tell her feel free to bring a significant other.  If she
           comes, it is a good sign (and whether she has a bf may not be a
           barrier).  Otherwise, wrap up the proj and move on.

                   this guy.  So what?

        \_ Ask her if she would like to go out to dinner and see a
           movie afterwords.  Don't make a big deal out of it when you ask
           and gracefully accept her answer if she says no.  By the way,
           if she just happens to be busy, then it probably means she
           doesn't want to go out so don't keep asking unless you want her
           to think you are a stalker.  Good luck.  Oh yeah, if she says
           something about the ring, just claim you didn't notice.
                \_ Uh yeah... it's only this shiny thing on her hand waving
                   around all day.

        \_ Ring on right hand means nothing. What are you worried about?
           \_ Are you sure?  I thought ring on ring finger of right hand
              meant, "I have a boyfriend, you know."  It even has a little
              crown on it, or whatever.  It's not a plain metal band.
              \_ Does it have a heart and a crown? Is she Irish?
              \_ I know lots of girls with rings on their right ring
                 finger with no boyfriend.  Often, that's the finger that
                 the ring fits best on.  There is no tradition of meaning
                 for a ring on that finger.
        \_ Ask her things like "what did you do last weekend?" that reflect
           a little about what she does for fun and in her spare time.  That's
           a big window for her to mention if she has a boyfriend or not.  If
           she does not mention a boyfriend, chances are she doesn't have one,
           or that the relationship isn't that serious.  --chris
           \_ If he's known her for more than 48 hours and she hasn't he even
              hinted she has someone else then she probably doesn't.  If he
              hasn't known her very long, then it can't hurt to just ask with
              out all the silly guessing games everyone here is suggesting.
              \_ "Do you have a boyfriend?" is a bit risky to ask and makes
                 intentions very obvious.  But then again, this is soda.
                 Who cares about subtlety?  --chris
                  \_ You WANT your intentions obvious!  unless you prefer to

                     \_ And make it an "all or nothing" scenario?  It's hard
                        to backpeddle out of a "do you have a boyfriend"
                        question into friendship if she _does_ have a

                        intentions...and THEN make your intentions known.

           All other times I don't wear boxers or briefs. It's much more
           comfortable. Think the freedom of boxers x 10.
           \_ The one problem I find with boxers (and probably commando)
              is that you can't think about "dirty things" while standing
              up. It takes some self-restraint but when you're walking
              down the street and happen to see something racy you have
              to turn away. This, unfortunately, includes women.
              \_ This implies that jockey underwear was invented by perverts.

                 sort of a thank you for a girl.  The funniest shit was that
                 this girl had a boyfriend who also came to the meal.
                 shortly thereafterward, the boyfriend got dumped and
                 my friend accomplished "the hostile takeover" as we
                 like to put it.  And this, all from recipes found on the
                 internet and a little effort.  good luck!

11/07  I know the MOTD is not the right place to for this, but searches on the
       web reveals too much information.  Anyway, does anyone know of URL of
       concise summaries or know of the answers to the followings:
        1) If I marry a student and have a divorce before she has the potential
           to earn an income, can she still get 1/2 of my options, house, car,
           bank account, investment account, retirement accounts, etc.?
           \_ Yep, but what state?
        2) How are my debts?  Will she also be liable for 1/2 of them if she is
           to claim 1/2 of my possesions?
           \_ Yeh rt.
        3) What if after she has the potential to earn an income?
           \_ Then the potential hopefully is that she'll eventually
              earn more than you and dump you.
        4) Is there any way that I can prevent this from happening short of a
           prenutial?  Something like a trust or irrovocable trust?
           \_ Dont get married. Or have an offshore account.
           \_ A prenup will help, but if she dumps you before earning
              anything, the judge can throw it out.
              A special type of trust, where you can access the assets
              and are a trustee but the trust isn't in your "name" will
              prevent her from touching your money. There are problems
              with this though, since it can only be used to secure pre-
              marital assets. After you get married you are SOL. The
              best option is to only get married if you can affort to
              lose big. Unless you are a multimillionare, no woman is
              worth it. Remember women come and go, money lasts a
              \_ My girl sticked with me through thick and thin.  No
                 amount of money is worth more than her.
                 \_ yermom doesn't count.
                    \_ Hehe.  Did ya gain all that cynicism when yermom
                        dumped you and your dad?
        \_ Why should all of this matter to you if want to get married?
           Just be happy that a woman will even give you the time of day.
           Consider whatever she takes when she leaves you for someone who
           is less of a self righteous asshole to be the price of getting
           your lame self laid
        \_ I guess you're just trying to cover your ass in worst-case
           scenario, but it sounds like you expect a divorce. If that's the
           case you deserve half your assets taken away. ie, don't marry
           unless you're positive you're gonna be in it for the long haul
           (so issues of potential income is a non-issue)
        \_ You people with your antiquated notions of love and romance
           really crack me up. If you get married without preparation,
           you *will* get screwed (far worse than anything you can do to
           her in bed). Women cannot be trusted and you should be prepared
           to defend what is rightfully yours.
            \_Look, the fact is that marriage is a LEGAL partnership. Once
              you get married you get to enjoy certain legal benefits,
              such as reduced tax rates (in single income families), etc.
              The price you pay for this is that your PARTNER is entitled
              to half the marital assets. Period. If you are so screwed in
              the head that your money is more important than your wifeor
              husband, then you deserve what you get. Anticipating
              nonexistant problems goes a long way toward creating them.
            \_ If you don't trust women, don't marry them. No problem.
             \_ This thread has come up before and there's always one guy who
              rehashes the same story.  Can you tell us exactly how your wife
              screwed you over?  Why the divorce and the subsequent money

            you don't have lots of friends to hook you up, it gets
            REALLY hard. try to get hooked up before you leave college.
            dating at work can be awkward b/c if things go badly, you
            have to see that person on a daily basis still or still
            work with them, that's messy.  or your workplace might
            be a virtual purgatory with no women your age, only
            older 50-60 year old women nearing menopause and retirement.
            you don't necessarily have to get desperate and marry the
            person next to you before you leave college.  Your friends
            are your best connection at this stage other than your outside
            hobbies, if they are anti-social and have no leads, then
            you are pretty much sort of fucked.  like lots of other people,
            I think it's rather typical nowadays.

            \_ Get one of the older people at work to hook you up with
               thier daughter. Easiest way to get to the top is to marry
               into it. Beware that you will have to treat this person
               nice otherwise things can get very hard at work.
               The other alternative is to have your parents find you
               a wife. Arranged marriages are cost effective and long
               lasting. None of that dating non-sense. The downside is
               that the proven system for arranged marriages is pretty
               much indian only, so unless you are indian SOL.

10/12   Is there a good stripclub near Santa Rosa?  My girlfriend wants
        a lapdance, from either a stud or a chick.
           \_ crazy horse is a good place to go for a lapdance.  The
              girls attractive.  If you want to get a good lap dance,
              expect to pay extra.  "good" is measured by two variables:
              squirm factor (SF) and hand movement (HM).  SF is whatever
              unusual things the dancer does to you to turn you on without
              actually fucking you or giving you oral.  HM is a measurement
              of how much you can touch a dancer without having him/her push
              your hands away.  a good experience will have high SF and low
              HM.  yeah....crazy horse.  yup...for $40, you can practically
              feel up your dancer EVERYWHERE just short of poking
              things into holes (that depends on the dancer of course).
             \_ Mitchell Brothers, Crazy Horse on Market...two suggestions.
                A friend of mine took his girlfriend to Mitchell Brothers,
                they went for a private dance -- the stripper got funky with
                with his gf, and then left them with a condom to "finish."
        \_ As if.
        \_ There are some farms around there, I think.  I seriously
           don't recommend a laptance from a stud, since she'll look sort
           of goofy with HOOF MARKS ON HER FACE.  And I can't imagine why

        \_ Back to the original question, I found The Gold Club to be pretty
           good. (Howard & 4th St, SF) All of the girls there are independent
           contractors; so most of them don't care about house policy. I found
           most to have medium to high SF and even some have high HM. $20 for
           one and they have a "Red Room" special, $100 for 3 dances and any-
           thing goes. (well, kinda) There are plenty of couples in there too;
           your gf may feel more comfortable there than going to "cock-heavy"

        \_ try to avoid making it out the excursion as being a "date",
           it'll tend to remove the social pressure you'd probably
           both feel as such.   you're asking this person to go out
           and have a meal, watch a movie, play pool, bowl, go swimming,
           golf, play tennis, play quake, etc etc whatever is the fancy.
           it's up to you...after all, if you think about it, there's
           only so much you can do with other people or another person.
           as a personal suggestion, dinner at a nice restaurant works
           ok although it doesn't rate highly in the originality department.
           and don't show up with roses or any sort of flowers, DO
           something else by all means.  flowers are a bit too cheesefuck
           for a first date...whatever the case, try not to label
           the event as a date when you are speaking to the person you
           want to ask out.    -- swings

                   I don't date (true) but we can go out and have fun,
                   hang out together, fly kites, etc. They're much more
                   receptive to the kite idea than one might think :)

10/6    Are women in EE/CS highly contested for?  If so, is it because they're
        desirable or is it because they are rare?
        \_ If you're looking at it from a corporate perspective, female
           engineers are more desirable hiring candidates, because employers
           like to keep their demographics in hiring balanced to qualify for
           equal opportunity employment.
           \_ Female empolyees are more expensive than Male employees. Most
              women have one bad week every month. Thats a 25% reduction in
              efficicy. Plus they all want to get married, pregnant, leave
              early to take care of kids, etc. Don't hire a woman engineer
              if you want to get any work done.
              \_ I would never get laid if I didnt hire female subordinates.
                      \_ considering the appearance of many female engineers,
                         you and a pumpkin or a whole in the ground might
                         be a better bet.

           'A visitor'. Women in EE/CS only get play cause EE/CS geeks can't
           get dates with any other types of women. I've only met a few EE/CS
           women that knew thier stuff. All the others were either getting
           the homeworks from thier boyfriends or were bonking the TAs.
                \_ You obviously never met raytrace.
                   \_ Not being ugly is not the same as pretty.  Raytace, like
                      most people in this world, is only attractive as far
                      as she isn't ugly.  IF you really think she is a beauty
                      then you need to get out more.

                           severely and positively fucked up.
                           picking on a single person like this was highly
                           inappropriate.  Both of you should be ashamed.
                           The first for setting her up as some ideal which
                           was certain to be attacked on the motd, and the
                           second for taking the bait and attacking her.
                                \_ You miss the fact that there is a long
                                   tradition of someone posting about EECS
                                   women to the motd every few months, and
                                   the response is always "you haven't met

                           of attraction anyway?  and who are you to dismiss
                           those who find her attractive so quickly?
                           this is so FUCKED UP severely and positively
                           fucked up.
                           \_ look I'm not saying she is ugly, I'm just
                              saying she isn't really all the remarkable
                              one way or the other.  And you know, that
                              generally non remarkably pretty (or ugly)
                              people are still attractive cause basically
                              the human body is attractive. Just she isn't
                              worth trotting out as a gorgeous CS girl,
                              cause if that is as gorgeous as CS girls get
                              then the comment that there are no gergeous

           a typical california gold-digger who ditches you after a few years
           and gets half of what you have, AND half of what you make for
           the next 20 years?
           If you want it to last, listen to your parents
           \_ No true. Most Indian girls are gold diggers too. Talk to a
              lawyer before you get married. Get a strong pre-nup and then
              just for good measure, transfer critical assets into a
              unrevocable trust. Not even Feminazi Bleeding Heart Liberal
              Lesbian Man-Hater judges can take the money away from you
              in divorce court if it is in a unrevocable trust. Don't think
              that this is romantic? Old jungle saying "Women come and go,
              money is forever."

              post to the motd, but I'm trying to take every piece of advice
              I can get!  I can't even really talk to him about it much,
              he doesn't like to talk much about it.  He is a workaholic,
              and his stress has been higher lately.
              \_ Indeed.
        \_ He should see a urologist. It could be stress,
           testosterone levels, blood flow problems, etc.
        \_ Tell him you want to start seeing other people.
           \_ That is NOT going to reduce the guy's stress levels!
                \_ No, but she'll finally start getting some low stress sex
                   for herself.  He needs to go deal on his own time and stop
                   being a wimp.

9/7     A friend of mine from Switzerland asked me where she and 3 other
        people coming to visit SF next week could maybe rent a cheap room
        for 10 days.  They'd like to avoid hotels if at all possible.  Does
        anyone have any ideas about guest houses and the likes?  Does this
        even exist?  -John
        \_ youth hostels
           \_ they're swiss, so they're cold, but they LOOK hot
              \_ Any pics to look at before I decide?
        \_ YMCA/YWCA in SF?
        \_ How about hostelling?  I remembered that's at lease one hostel smack
           between Union Square and Chinatown.

        \_ I love Swiss chocolate and Swiss porn
              "Tennage Sex" in the late 70's by Colour (sig) Climax Corp.
           \_ Danish porn is better.  My favorite video is a series called
              "Teenage Sex" in the late 70's by Colour (sig) Climax Corp.
                \_ They are 450-pound ex-male wrestler victims of steroid
                   hair growth halitosis experiments.  Aaron, they're white
                   so that rules out you.  And there is no such thing as
                   Swiss porn.  We get German and French porn, which is
                   pretty odd.  And you misspelled "teenage".  -John
                   \_ Huh?  The ones I watched were of average-weight young
                      un-ugly guys and gals.  I didn't get the tape in US,
                      so although I couldn't tell if they were really teens,
                      it would have been legal even if they were.  The tape
                      was Betamax, dubbed in English.

9/6     I accidental opened the bathroom while my grandmother's still naked in
        the bathroom and I did not have a hard on. Is that normal? Could I
        be gay?  Is there such thing as being "conditional gay" or "5% gay"?
        \_ Male roommate?  did your wife kick you out or did she
           just move her boyfriend in?
        \_ Are you asian/indian?
        \_ Is she a hottie? (Probably not, as people who post on the motd
           and people who have hottie GF's are sets without intersections)
           If not there's your answer.
        \_ silly noodle, hard-ons are triggered by a complex set of emotional
           and physical and intellectual considerations.  Walking in on her
           (sounds like this was a surprise/faux pas) probably involved
           some shock or shame and so unless you're one of those guys
           who likes to subject people and cause them harm (hopefully not)
           it's natural not to get a "hard-on" in that case.  But you
           really need to start reading a lot of books about sex not asking
           the motd.
           \_ Good point.  Another possible reason is that he has already seen
              her naked too many times, thus he has lost impulse on her body.

8/24    I was having sex with my boyfriend and as I was being clitorally
        stimulated to climax, I saw images like being on a ship in the middle
        of a storm with a yellow rainjacket on and feeling like my arms
        and hands were in watermelon bubblicious bubbglecum (that later
        changed to grape).  We were completely sober.  Would taking
        hallucinogens before a similar sex experience heighten the effect?
        \_ i don't think Paddington Bear takes hallucinogens.
        \_ No.  Every drug that messes with your brain (all of them) are
           either proven or almost proven to decrease sexual pleasure, ability
           to climax, etc.  This is definitely one time drugs can't improve

              I've also seen a correlation between having sex now, and doing
              CyberSex when young.  Obviously I'm not implying that CyberSex
              bestows good fucking and a love of sex.  More likely, it offers

7/24    Does anyone here work at Keynote Systems?  What's it like to work
        \_ you're expected to give management blowjobs in return for raises
           and bonuses, regardless of your sex.  They also demand anal sex
           in your cubicle.  Yes, management do show up at your cubicle asking
           you to bend over and fuck your ass.  Frequently they'll ask you
           to suck the cum out of your co-worker's asses after management has
           cummed in them.  If you like that sort of thing, then keynote is

                   of strap on dildos out of your pay check.

7/25    I recently found out that my GF has been through a string of relations
        with white guys.  Apparently she came to realize family values and
        financial stability are important things in a husband-to-be type BF.
        And so she looked for an Asian guy (me).  I'm considering breaking
        up with her because of her dating history.  What do you motd trollers
        \_ I think this is either a troll or you're both incredibly stupid
           and deserve each other
        \_ Obviously, you don't love her.  Otherwise, you shouldn't mind
           what her past was.  So, break up with her.  Also, do you have
           her number?
        \_ White men control most of the wealth in the US.  If she's
           interested in family values and financial stability she should
           stick with white guys.
           \_ And control most of the McDonald's jobs.
              \_ No, that would be Indians. Or is that only at Taco Bell?
           \_ Financial stability doesn't mean stinking rich.  It means having
              no debt, being frugal, etc.  You know, qualities conducive to
              starting a good family.  Dating a person with a long history
              is conducive to spreading venerial diseases.  Yeah, be wild!
              Suck and fuck hard.  You will get old someday.  And when you
              finally realize it you'll find it's too late for you to find
              a good decent mate.
        \_ I think it's better off you break up with her since you've already
           feel different about her.  The relationship will not last.  Get a
           decent girl, there are plenty.

                 i guess motd h0zers are just all male.

                  \_ Maybe the guy is asking for a clarification

           this world that those who are capable of caring for

           you're still allowed, but may choose not to.)
