        \_ Got a question for you emarkp. It's obvious that kchang has
           special statistical rules for calling names for different
           people. What made you think you're special and that he singled
           you out? More importantly, what's so bad about being called
           reagan more frequently than say, hitler or kimJongIl? Lastly,
           this is the internet and there's a lot of trash out there.
           Why are you so obsessed with his particular trash?

12/2    Any physics major here?  When Maxwell found that the speed of light is
        the same to all observers, did he ever consider that it contradicted
        with Newton's laws?  I read some Einstein biography and it sounded like
        Einstein was the first to consider the contradiction.
        \_ Nice overwrite.
        \_ Sounds like you are confusing Maxwell with Michelson-Morley
           They postdate Maxwell who dies in 1879 and the MM experiment
           is in 1887.

12/2    My professor emailed a really short email asking if I like
        teaching. I do. However, if I reply yes, I may get delegated
        into long teaching tasks which may take time away from coding
        and research. If I say no, I'd be lying, which will probably
        hurt in the long run. By the way I've already fulfilled my
        TA requirements. What should I do?              -grad stud
        \_ The vaaaaaaast majority of those who go into academia hate teaching
           and lie about it, saying that they like it.  Lying the other way
           to the guy who's going to write your letter of rec seems like a
           bad idea if you have academic aspirations.  If not, than fuck it.
           He'll probably relate to you more if you hate teaching as much as
           he does.
           \_ Bullshit.  I know a hell of a lot of profs who like teaching.
              The key is to avoid the weeder/I'm just here because it is
              a major requirement courses.
        \_ Tell him yes you enjoy it but just can't fit any in right
           now because of all of the coding and research you need to do,
           so you're happy you were at least able to get in the teaching
           needed to fulfill your A requirements?  -John

11/30   UrbanDead question: when there are multiple Zombies at one
        location, how is it determined which one is attacked?
        \_ If you were whamming on one, it keeps attacking that one; I think
           it either goes after the one with the lowest HP, or tracks which
           one you were beating up (for example if you went for ammo) and
           keeps on going after that one.  Otherwise it's random.  -John

11/21   How much does McDonald's pay these days?  My wife found some old pay
        stubs from 1991 and she was making $4.40/hr.
        \_ They pay minimum wage or thereabouts. That will vary by state.
           \- The one at the Grand Canyon pays more.
           \_ They actually pay a little more than minimum wage. Not much
              more. In-N-Out has better wages.
              \_ I remember when In-n-Out first opened in my home town, a lot
                 of the high school kids applied because of their high pay
                 (something like 7.75/hr back in 93-94?)  Those who did get
                 the job ended up hating it.  But I don't think the ones I
                 talked to had any experience to compare with other fastfood
                 \- were they really polite outside of work?
                    \_ They weren't the politest of the group, but they
                       weren't exactly rude either.  I don't see what your
                       point is, though.

        up to a big liability in the form of a libel suit. If you think
        that it can't happen to you, well, all I can say is that I know a
        good friend who sued someone and won about $8,500 about two years
        ago when said person sent out an email questioning said person's
        competence. All you need in a libel suit is A) Be Wrong and B)
        Communicate that to a 3rd person. I already wrote to csua@csua

10/22   Does anyone know what metal coathangers are typically made from?
        \_ NO. MORE. WIRE. HANGERS!!!!
        \_ I'm going to guess some sort of metal.
           \_ My question was badly phrased.  I meant "what kind of metal"?
              Really I just want to know whether I can silver solder to them,
              but I think I'll just try it tonight.  I'll post the result if
              anyone cares.

10/22   Gen-X is 27-40:
        \_ 62.4% of statistics are made up on the spot, the other 47.9% are
           pulled out of someone's ass when they have an article deadline.
           "Gen-X" means whatever some starving socialist wants it to mean.
           What else would socialists do but invent meaningless terms for
           their books?
           \_ socialist?
              \_ heh, sorry, it was early.  sociologists.
                 \_ This reminds me of the time I was standing in a Berkeley
                    dumpster digging for books in the middle of the night, and
                    this other random other guy jumped in and was also digging
                    for books, and for some reason called me a Stalinist.
                    Stalinist?? Only in Berkeley.
                        \_ I thought we were an autonomous collective.
