Found this crap on the w
big The Internet is the greatest source of pornography and misinformation outside of the Vatican library.

Blue Genes.
We're seeing a pretty good example of logocide here, unless Jim has been off in a corner somewhere and truly has never heard that "gook" and "spic" are derogatory terms. The premise that "nigger" is offensive to all races is just absurd, and of course, "Hispanic" is not a race. Kind of like Frank Zappa's refusal to apologize for his use of the term "JAP" in one of his songs, because "These people exist." Remember Gilda Radner's spot-on impressions? Did

Orses for courses....
Hehehehehe.... True. <smirk> Funnily enough, I knew the son of one of the guys involved in Australia's most famous horse ring-in the "Fine Cotton affair".... Very amusing, except for when I was sharing a house with him and some Feds came a calling to talk to my mate.... I never gamble on horses, not even the Melbourne Cup (how unAustralian). However, I do seem to have a knack when it comes to picking greyhounds....

Chemistry
This is one thing on which I am agreement with John Paul II (not like he has to call and get my permission for anything, mind you). He tends to rule from the right, and many of the American Catholics I know have problems with that. A good friend of mine and former co-worker used to complain all the time that he didn't like this and he didn't like that, and he really had a problem with Humanae Vitae. I

Something of no interest
Funny about that, isn't it? All these stupid little laws that the church support and then claim "aren't religiously inspired".... I not only disagree with the trading hours of hotels being severely restricted, but I feel that all alcohol tax should be standard (in SA wine is taxed less than other alcohol, and geewhiz!, funny that SA has a huge wine industry) or completely abolished, all alcohol producers nationalised, hotels able to trade 28 hours a day 9 days a

How about Cardinal Giuseppe Siri's view that it would take them four centuries to recover from Vatican II? One of the cardinals, I don't recall which, said something to the effect of "We think in terms of centuries around here." Might have been Ottaviani. The pope, while a powerful figure in the Catholic church, is not the powerful figure that hateful Fundies believe him to be. While there aren't any true checks and balances, the Curia can get in

Atheism
Right. My wife tells me, though, that the Salt Lake folks believe that, sooner or later, they'll head on back to Independence and establish that Temple. It'd be interesting to see the LDS folks coming in and saying "Bugger off, you RLDS gits. Squatter's rights." Are these guys dangerous loons, like the aforementioned crazies, or are they just their own little group? I presume this is the second manuscript, not the one that Smith lost?

Case #3
Can you elaborate? Camouflage it however you like, but it's still murder. Taking of a human life, remember? What "evil Red Tide" is this? Castro? <chuckle> As far as the crazed jihad "hordes," we have plenty of crazed "Right to Life" hordes here. For every World Trade Center bombing you dig up, I can present an Alabama abortion clinic bombing.

Case #4
Well, it's 1460-odd pages and I don't have it on disk. I will look into finding some indexing to it on the web. I've read _Principles_ twice through, and it's heavy going. Sorry to have not been of more help. There were some Russian experiments (did I mention this?) just a couple of years ago about maximizing information retention but they fizzled out. They had a couple of kids, one with an outstanding text retention ability like Curtis seems to

Thanks for the note. Since I have stopped posting to him I have noticed that he demonstrates Hector's Law with nearly every post. A man who started out low in life and worked his way down.

Hey, fuckhead!
He sent it! Now to get to a TV and watch it...

INDUCTION [1/2]
The 1961 Nobel to Mossbauer only three years after his discovery as a graduate student of "recoil-free" gamma rays comes pretty close. Perhaps you know enough physics to explain why the Third Law still applies in this case? Not an empirical hypothesis? Feel free to rest a hunting rifle up against your collarbone when you fire. What does "It is found. in your textbook explanation of the Third Law indicate? That the reactive force of the Third Law

Stupid fuck Putnam
There's a guy over in FN_SYSOP who is so brain-damaged he thinks everyone who posts from NET229 is named Darrell. I'd invite him in but I don't think he's as smart as RUSS WEURTZ (sp?).

The Revised Quote Book,
Heh! My reputation precedes me, otherwise I'd be late for all my appointments. I try not to indulge in Speedisms in here.... Boo! Boo! Of course, but you'd think they'd credit at least _some_ of their users with the maturity to decide whether to participate in here or not of their own accord.... Tell me about it.... It seems that the targetting and fire control software the RAN purchased is completely bug-ridden. Besides, those Collins class subs leak like all

Bad move, fuckchops, as altering someone's post is the one thing that will get you kicked out of this echo.... You should expect some mail from the moderator about this.

Child abuse
the <Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.......> Tell Jimbozo that, git, as he's the one using the Bile to defend his child abuse.... I don't have any worries with my kid, he lives on the other side of the planet from me.

Child abuse
ROFL! Another Cane Toad connesuier.... Doubtful though, as I don't think you get many cane toads in Tassie.... Although the prefered method of tripping on toads is to boil a few up and drink the water.... It's also fun to watch the toads die.... Or so I've heard, you understand.... Hehehehe.... Nessie is the result of drinking bootleg scotch.... It could be a conspiracy by the Scots to cover it up, getting up before dawn every day to remove truckloads
