5/3     BP shares. Buy? They are down 20% because of the spill, but is that
        the market overreacting or will there be major long-term
        adjustments to their business models that will curtail profits?
        \_ I am buying GS, but not BP. BP's potential liability is
           pretty amazingly huge.
           \_ Agreed. Note that BP has been trying to pay ppl $5k to
              forfeit right-to-sue; that's backlash waiting to
              happen.
           \_ What do you project will be their liability? Oil will be
              back to $150/barrel eventually. I think it would take maybe
              a $50 billion liability to make me worry. Do you think it
              could get that high? Exxon paid out $3.5 billion for the
              Exxon Valdez. BP can take a $50 billion hit one year and
              still make a profit.
              \_ I think oil will go through the roof too, so I own XOM,
                 CVX and USO, but not BP. BP's liability could easily top
                 $100B if they don't get this capped. Remember Valdez
                 $10000B if they don't get this capped. Remember Valdez
                 was in an almost unpopulated area.
                 \_ Though I guess there are limits on how much they can
                    be sued for. This is kind of an untested area of the law,
                    I bought TM when they were in the news and it has worked
                    out well so far for me, BP is probably not a bad bet
                    either. -PP

12/8    The current decade has been marked by dramatic effects of warming.

        In 2007-2009, the summer melt reduced the Arctic Ocean ice cap to its
        smallest extent ever recorded. In the 2007-2009 International Polar
        Year, researchers found that Antarctica is warming more than previously
        believed. Almost all glaciers worldwide are retreating.

        Destructive species such as jellyfish and bark-eating beetles are moving
        northward out of normal ranges, and seas expanding from warmth and

12/8    Arguments based on word defition.
        So; just wondering but I wonder if alot of arguments are based on
        1. what we historically viewed as consensus of the term's def
        2. what new media defines as the term.
        for example, the petite vs. wikipedia petite.  Which is more valid?
        a definition that someone , and their immediate culture, has used
        a term all their life or something a culture defines as valid
        no matter how young?
        \_ Yeah I've heard the term "anecdotal evidence is invalid" alot
           out of the UCB student pop lately; they seem to prefer
           internet definitions.
           \_ By that nature, those definitions can change at the flip of
              a bit or wiki change/revert.
              \_ "We have always been at war with east^weurasia."
        \_ We can't have different ideas about the same word, that would
           bring anarchy!
           \_ nevertheless different people use the same word for different
              things, and the problem is when it's used for slightly similar
              definitions.  If you kill that you are killing diversity.
        \_ Is this a real discussion or one that someone added in its entirety?
        \_ Bill Clinton should be an expert on this subject.
        \-   "Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow,
             the force  of it depends  on the strength  of the

             from  a cross-bow, which  has equal  force though

           \_ Same reson why I don't like breakroom conversations at my

              \_ except conversation is a side-effect of the
                 intent of the breakroom, whereas the telephone
                 is simply an out-dated and inefficient
                 protocol to get things done ASAP.
                 \_ Interesting. I have found a phone call is the quickest
                    way to get a response versus, say, e-mail or texting
                    which is easy to ignore.
                    \_ People don't usually ignore me, so I prefer IM for
                       working on technical problems. It is hard to explain
                       things like log files and unix commands over the phone.

10/13   I am selling a Nikon D70 dlr on craigslist. A guy responds and
        wants me to ship it to Ogun State, Nigeria. He says he'll send
        me the money via paypal once I give him the OK (committing to
        the transaction). Could this be a scam? How would he manage to
        do it if he wires me the money first? I have no local buyers,
        other than low-ballers! I am tempted to sell to him, but
        wondering if there's something I am not seeing here.. Thanks!
        \_ Just don't do it.
        \_ That nigeria is involved should be a huge regd flag that it
           is a scam.   They also have a long history of scams where they
           buy stuff, overpay for it, ask you to send the overpayment back
           and leave you holding the bag when their 'overpayment' was actually
           fake and the bank didn't reverse it until a few days later.
           \_ Wait several weeks and see that the overpayment is actually
              cleared by the bank before you send the overpayment back.  -- !OP
        \_ I wouldn't do it. Nigeria has such a bad reputation that when my
           girlfriend, who is a movie producer, had to meet with a potential
           Nigerian investor (who now lives in the US) everyone was skeptical.
           I was worried for her safety when she met him at his hotel bar (he
           was flying in to town from back East) and she made sure to go with
           others. It turned out that not only was the guy legitimate, but
           extremely nice, too. We all feel terrible for judging him based on
           the country he was born in, but Nigerian scam artists have made it
           that way. That said, I would worry that this guy is laundering money
           or using a stolen account, which may mean that even if you aren't
           ripped off you are doing business with a criminal enterprise.
           Are you comfortable with that possibility?

        that includes vodka? I bought a nice bottle yesterday and
        realized that all I know is a screwdriver. Anyone have a good
        recommendation for other simple, yet tastier drinks? Thanks.

           martini. White Russian. Kamikaze.
           I am partial to cosmos if I have to drink a girlie drink.
        \_ Bloody mary, salty dog, cape cod.  Pretty much any juice +
           vodka works, really. Vodka doesn't add any taste, it
           pretty much just adds alcohol to your drink.

7/24    So I bought into the hype after being in San Diego during Comicon
        last year (but not attending) and decided to go this year. I can't
        say I really enjoyed myself. It was $40 for a 1 day ticket and
        what that entitled me to was to stand in line for hours (literally) if
        I wanted to see any of the cool stuff/people like Tim Burton, the
        ability to buy overpriced clutter, er, collectibles, and the
        ability to buy autographs from has-beens like Richard Hatch. I
        would have far preferred to spend $$$ to get into the interesting
        programs without standing in line. The freaks wearing costumes
        were interesting, but overall I wouldn't go back. Example of why
        Comicon sucks: You could win a drawing to be one of 10 lucky
        people who could get your photo taken and get an autograph with
        Stan Lee. Not a year ago I was able to do both things for free at
        a Barnes and Noble without standing in lines, paying $40 entry,
        and entering a raffle. I felt like cattle at Comicon. I saw Buzz
        fucking Aldrin yesterday for $20 and Comicon wants $40 for me to
        be able to enter the show to buy stuff?

7/21    "I just love the concept of someone giving me information that,
         by definition,I would absolutely have to already know."
        \_ sounds like every programming job out there. "If i took the
           time to explain it to you, i'd just do it myself and not have
           to hire you."
           \_ My engineers have become a lot more productive when I
              really groked the whole idea of "teach a man to fish."
              \_ eventually they'll be able to psychically derive the
                 product directly from first principles and assumptions
                 they make from facial ticks of management.  Then at that
                 point you can retire, for they truly will be able to know
                 the Mind of God.
        \_ If you have to ask, you don't know.

e/17    Wow, were the japanese I-navy just really stupid at midway or
        unlucky?  4 carriers lost?  Looked like they had superior air
        cover for the carriers too.
        \_ God was on the American side.
        \_ Yamamoto had groups very sparsely distributed, the sub screen
         failed, PURPLE had been broken, the main force had few capital ships,
         the air strategy was to keep half in reserve.  That is a sampling of
         what went wrong; it's actually a very complicated situation.  Remember
         the play was for total Pacific domination; it was a gamble and they
         lost.  Glory to the Emperor.  Incidentally you could have found
         this out by reading a single page or by watching about 20 minutes
         of any Midway documentary.
         \_ You know too much of what Yamamoto was planning for any good
            Christian.
