        http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/8263034.htm
        \_ Wahoo!  Now we can have fun again.
        \_ Good riddance. Those 19% probably were mostly "make money fast"
           types.
        \_ Cal students should ignore the trends when picking majors.

3/23    I seem to be getting sniffles from one of my pillows.  Does that
        happen to anybody else?  What are the pros and cons of feather and
        foam pillows?  THANKS.
        \_ You are probably developing an allergy to chicken feathers. Switch
           to a hypoallergenic pillow or foam and see if it goes away.
           \_ foam has significant amounts of chemicals (e.g., formaldehyde),
              and these chemicals are showing up in breast milk of all
              places. foam is bad!
        \_ on a side note, anyone know where to get cheap posturpedic-style
           pillows? the ones sold at Brookstone are such a ripoff.
           \_ i bought a buckwheat pillow at walgreen's for $10. is that what
                you are talking about?
        \_ try washing it more often?

3/22    RIP: Brian Maxwell, PowerBar founder, Berkeley alum (1975)
        \_ and donator of cash for the Maxwell Family Field (formerly
           Kleeberger) -tom
        \_ That's just too strange. This guy ran marathons and he died at
           51?! Thank your parents for your genes.
           \_ statistics don't apply well to individuals.  for example,
              suffering heart complications from a viral infection doesn't
              mean you were living an unhealthy lifestyle or belonging
              to a high risk group (at least not a well understood
              high risk group...)
           \_ Maybe he ate too many PowerBars?
        \_ A couple of years ago (maybe the year he sold PowerBar to
           Nestle), he was the largest private donor to Cal.  I think
           he gave $5M.
                \_ ohhh. so that's whata Maxwell Family field is?
                   I was trying to figure it out from the
                   descriptions in the news.

        What is wrong with the US Policy again?
        \_ Is this a troll?
        \_ No, they kill non-Muslims of all types because they're non-Muslims.
           Convert or die.  The 'problem' with US policy is the US isn't an

3/14    When I visited Salt Lake City some years ago, I noticed many large
        families (with lots of kids) dressed in suits walking on the streets
        layed out in Cartesian coordinates.  The girls tend to look cute, but
        the boys almost always seem retarded.  So here are my two questions:
        do mormons tend to reproduce a lot?  are they prone to inbreeding?
        \_ hey, if you find a city laid out in elliptic coordinates or
           hyperbolic coordinates, could you please post its location?
        \_ what do Cartesian coordinates have to do with this?
           \_ The motd is slowly becoming an Umberto Eco novel.
           \_ If you have been to SLC or looked at its map, you would know.
        \_ Nice Troll.
           \_ Maybe it is to you, but this is also a puzzle for me for many
              years.  Do you have an answer?
              \_ Ok, Yes. No.

3/10    My new Beretta filter is outputing black water, not just a few
        black particles.  The only unusual thing I did with it was shaking
        it.  Did I break it and let loose some ink/pocket of extra fine
        charcoal or was it defective to begin with?
        \_ You mean Britta?  Baretta is a gun maker.
        \_ If it did that before you shook it, it's defective.  If it started
           after shaking, I'd guess you broke the charcoal.  Either way you can
           probably return it as defective if there's any doubt.

3/9     \_ I wanna make the China version of Yahoo Maps / Mapquest.
           Anyone here has any experience?  eg. Worked at Navtech?
           We can start with like Beijing and move on from there.
           \_ In Taiwan right now, and talked to friends from the mainland
              regards to LBS service.  The main issue is that, unlike USA,
              which essentially gave out GIS map of entire country for free
              (TIGER db), in both mainland China and Taiwan, GIS Maps has to be
              purchased.  I am less familiar with what is going on in the
              mainland, but in Taiwan, first, the government actually holds
              copyright on these maps, secondly, the government impose a very
              restrictive license on how the map can be used, and charge a
              very handsome sum for "value-added redistribution."
              Second issue is less difficult.  There is simply no good Chinese
              parser out there to tokenize addresses.
                 \_ pain in the butt, nothing more, and there are issue of
                    chinese literal versus arabic numerals, full-width
                    latin characters, half-width characters, etc, etc.
                    to get things right, it requires some tedious work.
                    The main issue lies upon the avaliablity of GIS maps.
              In taiwan, life get even more complicated because maps are
              controlled by several different government agencies.

              The main obsticle is that Chinese people on both strait treat
              map as some sort of military secret, and very reluctant to
              release them to civilian use.

              If you are interested in this kind of things, email me, as I
              am in the process of getting street maps of Taipei to play
              with (which going to cost me $150 USD just for personal use).

                 If they write it all together, sure, but if it's entered
                 in seperate fields or with a delimiter, I don't see
                 what's the difficulty.

           out what the surface area must be.  (This will not give you an

3/1     Three generations ago, it was routine for an 18 year old
        and a 17 year old to strike out on their own, get married,
        settle and work a 160 acre piece of land, build their own
        house with their neighbors help and start having children.
        These young people strike me as mature. Perhaps some things
        have changed in 100 years, but human nature has not. Do
        not confuse the fact that you don't know any mature 18
        year olds with the idea that there are none anywhere in
        the world.

           twenty years. Please don't take this as a personal attack
           but, well, you just need to do more reading before making
           statements like this if you expect to be taken seriously.
           Note that your core thesis - that individuals were often
           in positions of greater responsibility at an earlier age
           in the 19th century US is essentially correct IIRC - for a
           particular number of socioeconomic strata. The same could,
           however, likely be said for people from comparable
           backgrounds today. Take, for instance, a single teenage
           mother in Compton or the Rust Belt. -- ulysses
           \_ Just because it isn't PC to talk about the settlers
              doesn't mean it didn't happen. My great grandfather left
              home at 15, got a job as a ranch hand, and settled his
              own 1/4 section at 19 with his young bride, so I know it
              happened. I really don't see what in my statement would
              imply that there are no mature teenagers here since I
              stated the opposite. And yes, I agree, it has a lot to
              do with socioeconomic opportunities and responsibilities.
              I know young people that have worked since 14 and helped
              raise little brothers and sisters and are pretty mature
              compared to your average Cal student.
              \_ My very bad. I re-read your post and I was being a braindead
                 since, as you say, you had already pointed out that people
                 all over are in the position of being responsible for a
                 family at an early age. However, the main innaccuracy stands.
                 Though the anecdotal example of your own background shows one
                 example of the settler model, the majority of
                 individuals from the same period did not settle land - that's
                 pretty much just Western mythology. And, of those that did,
                 the vast majority did not make it more than a couple of
                 seasons. Good for your grandparents, though. I hope somebody
                 in your family has decided to write all down since those
                 experiences make for great histories. -- ulysses
              \_ Bully for grandpa. Your anecdotal evidence doesn't support
                 a trend, doesn't tell us anything about his maturity at the
                 time, and doesn't change the fact that _today's_ 18 year
                 old is remarkably immature when compared to today's 23 year
                 old, let alone today's 28 year old.
                 \_ It really depends on the 18 year old, the 23 year old
                    and the 28 year old. Young people are capable of being
                    mature, even if most are not, that is the point.

2/23    Do you think My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance was cruel?
        \_ Yes, but seeing how fuckin stupid Randi was,
           saying "I did this all for you, my family" was
           the most pathetic line ever muttered. That trash
           (girl + family alike) deserves what happened.
           \_ There was nothing wrong with the family.  She was undeserving of
              a family that cared for her so much.  At what point were any of
              the Coy family trashy?  --Coy family defender #1
                \_ I agreed with you, until the end when they said it was
                   all ok since Randi did this all for them. They're either
                   gullible as hell, or Fox did a great job of editing.
                   \_ I think that was some clever editing and the Coys trying
                      to make the best of a *really* ugly situation that their
                      stupid daughter and the producers put them in.  Did you
                      expect them to say they'd never talk to her again?  I
                      saw a mini-interview with her which said she and her dad
                      are 'working on their relationship' or some such thing,
                      so although the show ended with peaches and roses, the
                      off screen reality is much different for the Coys.  I
                      think Steve made the show funny, she was a total loser
                      and the Coy family were 100% victims and decent people.
                      \_ I agree that the Coy family were 100% victims and
                        decent, good people (except Randi?)
                         \_ yes, except randi who was a totally selfish bitch

                      to appeal to the darker side of minds by rousing fear
                      and anger than invite them to reason.  (Protect the
                      white virgins of this country from being outsourced!)
                   \_ Can someone explain to me what the contribution of an
                      economist is to society?  From where I'm sitting, they
                      appear to be researchers who will tell you, yes, that's
                      cancer, and you're going to die, but won't bother
                      finding cures or vaccines.
                      \- a fair question is "what are some significant
                         contributions to policy formulation from economic
                         science". well econometric methods are useful if
                         you believe it is important to have "feedback"
                         data about the economy. a field like IO may be
                         usefulto analyze anti-trust issues ... or in general
                         analysing regulation. financial economists came
                         up with pricing models, securitization. there is
                         the threory of international trade and open econ
                         monetary theory, optimal currency areas etc.--psb
                         \_ So the purpose of an economist is to provide
                            insight into how to increase the size and
                            stability of the economy?
                            \- well simplifying a lot, normative econ =
                               how people should behave. descrive = how
                               people do behave. in the modern age people
                               would probably say something like "decision
                               making with an eye to information and
                               rationality" is at the core of economics
                               rather than just focusing on money and
                               production of goods and services. some
                               economists study crime, gun control,

2/22    Can someone point me to an RFC that specifies which ascii characters
        are valid in email addresses?  I can't seem to find it in 2821 or
        2822.  -John
        \_ It's scattered around RFC 2822.  The actual definition of an email
           address (addr-spec) is section 3.4.1, but it refers to a lot of
           stuff from earlier in section 3.
                \_ Cool, thanks.  I noticed that a lot of online email
                   address parsers reject 'a+b@domain.com'--was just sort of
                   wondering whether there's anything they're "supposed" to
                   accept.  -John

           The upshot is that nearly any ASCII character is allowed if quoted
           properly, including whitespace and control characters.  The only
           thing you can't have at all is a NUL character -- and even that
           used to be permitted, so RFC 2822 still requires you to handle it
           properly.  Non-ASCII characters (anything above 127) are not
           allowed; RFC 2047 specifies the =?ISO-8859-1?Q?=E9?= syntax for
           encoding them.

           Of course, you may not want to send mail to anyone belligerent
           enough to have control characters in their email address.  --mconst
           \_ ooooh, sweet.  I never thought of that.  If I had control chars
              in my email address do you think that would avoid all spam?

        Hi, my name is Nikki known from the infoumous gypsy on Telegrapgh. I
        am coming back to the bay area slowly and was wondering if you or
        anyone for that matter might know of a place that would be good
        for me to possibly work at . Most places are asian and it is hard to
        find a place with a "line up" of veriaty ladies.
        Besides working independently any suggestions on inside places?
        I don't know about the one down the street from Normandy's.
        Actualy I thought that they were closed down not to long after the
        gypsy was closed. Mail me personaly if you can and if you are
        leary then I can give more details of who I am so you'll know that I
        did in fact work at the gypsy.
        \_ If this wasn't scary enough on its own, the only person I know
           that was a regular customer of The Gypsy was a man known in the

                   a quick appointment or waiting for 1 hour in line?
                   The point is, it's frustrating both ways.

           SUPPORT   The posting is good; it requires only some followups to
                     explain and amplify its position.

           DISCUSS   The posting is reasonable; it needs further analysis and
                     commentary.

           DISPUTE   The posting is bad; it requires followups to point out
                     its errors and fallacies.

           CENSOR    The posting is so bad that neither it nor any ensuing
                     discussion will have any value whatsoever; it should be
                     removed.

        interested and I'll send you the specifics. - dans
        \_ Will this be better than the last poetry slam at the berkeley
           public library?
           \_ Yes.
        \_ How many artist brothers do you have?
           \_ I have three siblings.  My eldest brother Todd is a poet in New
              York, my elder brother Brad is a painter in San Francisco, and
              my younger sister is a former olympic-class ice dancer (now
              retired) currently attending Cornell. -dans
              \_ ice dancer?  got pics?
                 \_ Google you pervy moron. -dans
                    \_ She's cute in a Sarah Silverman sort of way, but is
                       she as raunchy and humorous?
                       \_ Who's Sarah Silverman (I don't care enough to bother
                          googling)?  Have you ever met me?  If I am
                          sufficiently raunchy and humorous, then yes.  It
                          runs in the family. -dans
                          \_ Raunchy?  I guess, but in a trying way too hard
                             kind of way.  Humorous?  Only if you find jerks
                             funny.
                             \_ You'd do well not to confuse folks who are
                                trying to hard with folks who genuinely don't
                                care if they offend you.  As justification for
                                being a jerk, all I can say in my defense is
                                you did something to deserve it, and
                                belligerency is the underappreciated artform of
                                our time. -dans
              \_ Huh. So are those brothers able to make a living at just art?
                 \_ Nope.  Both are working on it. (TM)
                    \_ Ok, that confirms my cynical worldview, thanks. I bet
                       your parents wish they were lawyers.

2/9     I turned on the stove with a new empty stainless pan on it by mistake
        and when I realized that, I erred again by pouring cold water into the
        pan.  Now it has that brownish layer on the surface.  What is the
        chemical composition of this layer and is it harmful?  If not I would
        rather leave it as it is.
        \_ next time put a nice tbone steak on it instead, leave for 2 minutes
           \_ You are kidding me, right?  Heating won't get rid of the oxide.
              \_ wow, could you have misread that any worse?
        \_ It's no big deal.
        \_ If you're really set on getting rid of the brownish layer,
           try Barkeeper's Friend, but follow the directions or you
           might mar the finish.
