3/31    Nearly every metal object in my office keeps zapping me with static
        charges every other time I touch it. Is there something wrong with
        me or my office?
        \_ Your carpets could just suck, check the soles of your shoes (I
           think leather is a bit better), maybe the humidity is too low,
           or maybe it's the CIA brain implant malfunctioning.  -John
        \_ Hold a key or a coin and use it to touch other metal objects before
           you touch them with bare hards.
        \_ Make sure to include some pins in your tinfoil hat, pointing outward.
           The sharp points will dissipate the static charge back into the
           air for you.
        \_ There could be problems with the grounding in the office.

3/30    Has anyone else had a monitor that makes a really high pitched noise?
        I changed the refresh from 75 Hz to 85 Hz and it stopped, though.
        \_ It most likely means one of your caps is bad. Take it back to
           manufacturer for a replacement. If out of warranty open it up
           and find out which cap is singing. Get a replacement cap from
           Radio Shack or Digikey if it's a rare one. You'll need to be
           semi-decent at soldering if the singing cap is on a multilayer
           PCB to prevent burning the pad ring off.
           BTW, it WILL get worse over time.
           \_ #include <be_careful_dont_kill_yourself.h>
           \_ Are you giving out advice on how to kill the original poster?
              Do not fix it yourself, please.
           \_ That's okay, I wasn't planning on fixing it anyway. The monitor
              is like 6 or 7 years old now, but I was just wondering. Thanks.
        \_ Maybe the noise doesn't stop when you changed from 75Mz to 85Hz,
           and it just goes beyond the auditable range which is about 20Hz
           - 20kHz.
        \_ Is the monitor a trinitron (apeture grill) tube?  It could be
           "trinitron whine", as the horizontal wires holding the grill
           grow loose and the wires resonate with the electron beam.
           Noisy but not a physical problem:  Give the monitor to
            your parents who don't have high frequency hearing anymore.

        Fake ATMs. Apparently, other countries have even more sophisticated
        scams (read the comments!)
        \_ These have been around for about 2 years.  A couple of years back
           in the NE US some guys put entire fake ATMs in a few shopping
           centers to harvest card info.  A more common one here consisted
           of Romanian gangs just hooking a truck up to an ATM and yanking
           it out of its housing (not attacking the customer but the machine
           itself.)  In fact, ramming burglaries and the likes were a huge
           problem in a lot of Europe over the last 3-4 years, which is why
           you see big concrete blocks or stones in front of a lot of
           jewelery stores and banks here.  -John

           about it.

              married, do you have to get them a present the second time...
              can it be less nice?

        and her parents for what they have to go through. May her rest
        in peace. I wish she had married someone better.
        \_ Yep.  It's not a political struggle, but the commentators have made
           it one.

3/26    Terri Bleeding From Eyes and Mouth
        \_ I wonder if all the people who talk about starving to death as
           peaceful are referring to the elderly who simply stop eating and
           drinking as they near death?  It seems to me the body naturally
           shutting down is different than yanking a feeding tube. -emarkp
           \_ All the more reason to allow physician-assisted suicide.
           \_ Feeding tubes are considered an "extraordinary measure," and
              are a recent (1970s) innovation.  Though different than a
              respirator, the outcome is essentially the same - the person
              cannot live without the machine.  FWIW, Schiavo will die from
              dehydration long before she dies of starvation.

           (They'd have to pay #1 QB money).  -tom

              Rodgers will do well in two years.
              \_ not without an O-line or defense.  The 49ers have much more
                 pressing needs than QB.  -tom
                 \_ It'd be kind of cool if he ends up on the Dolphins.
                    They have a lot of the same problems on the o-line as the
                    49ers, but at least they have a decent coach and an owner
                    who'll shell out the bucks if need be.
             \_ I want Rodgers to go to the Niners so we can watch him
                play in person.  O-Line will be improved.
        \_ I think Rodgers needed one more year under Tedford. I see him almost
           like Kyle Boller, struggling for awhile.

1/28    I've never been to Hooters, is it similar to South Park's raisin
        girls? Where they flirt with the guys in the restaurant and
        occasionally sing/dance?
        \_ I don't know about raisin girls, but at hooters there is
           no singing, dancing, or flirting. many of the girls even
           aren't that hot.
           \_ I got flirted with while I was at Hooters, but I am
              probably a lot better looking than you.
                \_ post your picture bitch
              \_ You do realize that it's part of their job to be friendly
                 with customers, yes?  They'll flirt with ugly-ass stinky
                 people even if they have no interest or intention of
                 following up.  Just so ya know, kid.
                 \_ I'm guessing that the quantity of flirtage is a strong
                    function of the size of expected tip.  Ugly guy
                    with fancy watch and suit will get more flirtage.
                    \_ Yes and no. This is like being at a strip club.
                       Young and rich is better than old and rich. Imagine
                       if you were paid $20 to kiss someone. Wouldn't you
                       care who they were or would you kiss everyone and
                       make more money that way? Most people do care at
                       least a little bit.
