1/8     stupid question: i just finished reading the Trilogy, and i don't
        get what the two towers are.  clearly one of them is Orthanc, saruman's
        tower, but what is the other one?  Sauron semems to have several
        towers, and I think Gondor has a tower or two.  Aren't there towers
        all over middle earth?  what the hell?  is it Barad Dur?
        \_ I recall reading that it is a reference to Orthanc and Minas Tirith.
           -- ulysses
        \_ minas ithil and minas arnor.  - someone who read the Silmarion.
        \_ It's yermom's twin towers.  They always come in pairs.
           \_ They don't come in paris in the movie Kung Pao.
        \_ I think Minas Tirith and Minas Ithil (renamed Minas Morgul). --dim
        \_ It's just a metaphore.
        \_ Minas Tirith and Minas Ithil (renamed Minas Morgul) for the
           opposition of light and dark, but the two in the book are
           Cirith Ungol (Barad-dur) and Orthanc. Tolkien himself was unhappy
            \_ I think Cirith Ungol != Barad-dur. The first is the orc fortress
           a bit ambiguous. --dim
               guarding the pass (the stairs of Cirith Ungol) and the other is
               the great fortress in the plains of Gorgoroth and the center of
               Sauron's power. I don't have the book with me, though.
               \_ You are right. --dim
                  \_ ...and this was the source of my confusion.  Barad dur
                     seems more important, because the Main Evil Dude lives
                     there, but on the other hand, we never actually see
                     barad dur in the story, unlike cirith ungol, which
                     is pretty important.  thanks for providing the only
                     useful or intelligent answer!  -OP
           with the title because of the ambiguity. I quote: "I am not happy
           at all about the title 'The Two Towers'." It is supposed to be
           a bit ambiguous. It can even be Orthanc and Minas Morgul. --dim
        \_ Found this:
           http://members.cts.com/king/e/erikt/tolkien/2towers.htm
            -- ulysses
        the problem is that the 2 towers can refer to anything DEPENDING on
        what books you've read.  Hell, even the hobbit has Dol Guldur (in
        mirkwood, sauron's 1st attempt to set up power)...  If you read the
        silmarion, it's obvious you're talking about minas *.  if you read
        lotr, then it's maybe barad-dur and minas tirith.  Altho rohas is
        just as important.  Btw: 3 rings for the elven kings went to:
        1. elrond, 2. galadriel, and 3, (Narya the Great) went to Cirdan who
        gave it to Gandalf.
        \_ Narya the Great?  I suppose the others are Nenya the Okay and
           Vilya the Adequate...

1/3     Did anybody hear a radio piece (probably NPR) about a singer and
        a group who recently put out an album with the title
        "Bavarian Fruitcake" or something "Fruitcake"?  I have done
        searches on yahoo, google and amg, but can't find what I want.
        Maybe it's too new.
        \_ On the off chance you misheard, there's a compilation out called
           "better than fruitcake"
        On a related note, does anybody know who sings that song
        "Kiss Me" ?  I also did a search on amg and there are like
        100 songs with that same title.  The singer is a woman and I've
        heard her on the radio quite a lot.  She has kind of a weird
        soulful voice.  Thanks in advance.
        \_ I suspect the "Kiss Me" you want is by a band called
           "Sixpence None The Richer"
        \_ Try looking at the Soundtrack for Not Another Teen Movie, or the
           movie it was spoofing, She's All That. The guy above is correct.

12/24   Since when did they start to detonate bombs using matches? I thought
        electric detonators have long been proved to be more reliable since
        WWII.
        \_ Oddly enough, matches don't set off METAL detectors. Even more
           odd is that C4 (if that's the explosive) needs a blasting cap
           to get set off. Burning it just makes a quaint little fire.
           \_ There was det cord and other stuff in there if you're trying to

        \_ Are cows waterproof?

           \_ Cows are not waterproof.
        \_ first canteens where made of leather
        \_ Leather is not waterproof.
        \_ first canteens were made of leather
        \_ suede leather is not waterproof, but all other leather
           should be.
        \_ In general, the leather is "waterproof," so it'll be ok in light
           rain.  However, if it is high quality leather, and you don't want
           it to get that really used, faded, bomber jacket type feel, you
           might want to get it waterproofed, which can be done by most
           dry-cleaners(they send it to a leather specialist).  This will
           coat the leather, and protect the sheen, and the texture of the
           leather.  e.g. if you have a nice Bally jacket, you definitely
           want to do this.
                \_ Cool, thank you.
           \_ actually the best way to deal with rain and leather is once every
              couple of months you souhld oil the thing.  It takes about 15
              minutes and does a good job of keep the leather looking good.
              In fact waterproofing in the end hurts leather because it makes
              oiling the thing much harder.

11/12   On paper, how do you figure out what log_2 (4/3) is? I remember
        log_2 (4/3) = log_2 4 - log 3 = 2 - log 3. Now what?
        \_ 2 - log_2 3 = 2 - ln 3 / ln 2.  Then get a mathematical table and
           look up ln 3 and ln 2.  Or use a polynomial of ln(1+x).  I forgot
           the polynomial.  --- yuen
           \_ ln(1+x) = x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 + ..., for |x| < 1.
              As another poster pointed out, log_2(4/3) = ln(4/3)/ln(2)
              \_ That polynomial is wrong.  Try ln(1 + 0.9).
              \_ It should be ln(1+x) = x/1 - x^2/2 + x^3/3 - x^4/4 + ...
           \_ that was remarkably useless.
              \_ How else would you do that?

11/9    "FBI: Same Person Probably Wrote Anthrax Letters"
        ttp://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20011109/ts/attack_anthrax_fbi_dc.html
        More than a whole month after anthrax letters appeared, the FBI has
        finally come up with a criminal profile:
        - probably an adult
        - probably male
        - may have worked in a lab or had a scientific background
        - may have gotten vaccine or antibiotics.
        A high school kid can come up with this in twenty seconds.  Geez.
        \_ uhhh, right.  and after 20 odd years on the unabomber case,
           they had a profile of an out of work airline employee with
           little to no education waering sunglasses and a sweatshirt.
           \_ - There are a lot more adult criminals than minor criminals.  Ie.
                the % of adults among criminals is higher than the % of adults
                in the general population.
        \_ Ok, you've had some college or maybe graduated.  Let's hear your
           educated reasoning that would bring one to this 20 second
           conclusion.
           \_ - There are a lot more adult criminals than minor criminals.
              - Same argument for male.
              - Having either worked in a lab or had a scientific background
                makes it much easier (although not easy) to understand and
                get anthrax.
              - Knowing that anthrax is hazardous, it's more likely that not
              FBI has said anyway.  ("probably", "may".)
                that (s)he's taken steps to protect himself/herself with
                vaccine or antibiotics so that (s)he can stay healthy and
                produce a chain of attacks.
              None of these are definite conclusion, but neither was what the
              FBI has said anyway ("probably", "may", "or").
                \_ The difference is when the FBI says "probably" they're right
                   more often than your random guesswork.
                   \_ But according to that article, the only thing that the
                      FBI is near certain is that all three letters were
                      written by the same person.

11/9    Let's say you have f(n)=2^n. Then as a function of n the output is
        exponential (easy). In that case, why is it that as a function of
        f(n) the output is linear?
        \_ I don't know what "output" means, but I'll try.  Let m =
           f(n), then m = 2^n, hence f(n) = 2^n = m, and hence f(n) =
           m.  So f(n) is a linear function of m, therefore f(n) is a
           linear function of f(n).  I guess that means the "output"
           is linear.
           \_ so this is universally true no matter what f(n) is right?
              \_ uh, so f(n) is always linear to itself?  well, duh.
        \_ Is this from some Math class in Cal?  Which one?

        \_ Bits are good.  More bits are better!

              "In rare cases 1 1/2 stop bits are used. This means that the
