erictravis: Anyone heard of the date for the next NPR bit?
Merlyn LeRoy: question for group; should the default settings be changed to a smaller font/fewer lines?
Dexter Fong: Jawn: Redraw rate means either the screen blinks a whole lot but everyone's comments come up fairly quick or it doesn't blink often and then 4 or 5 comments come up at once
Nick_Danger: getchoo a good dvd player that can handle vcds, svcds

Nick_Danger: get it
doctec: I have another email from Cat, I'll post it in a little bit...

Bone-E-Boi: Don't laugh, it works.
Doc Technical: Ywah but I don't wanna be in one room while Lili is in another - much nicer to be in the same space with her

Doc Technical: Woo-hoo!
Doc Technical: Nite J
Ken: "...so help me grid."
Dexter Fong: Night Jawn
erictravis: What makes you think Alfred E. would be interested in running?
klokwkdog: my theory (not that anyone wants to hear) is that the repression has to maximize before the populace will respond. so this is all part and parcel of "give them more rope".
Lili Lamont: His resemblance to W.
Dexter Fong: Klok: And then when they have all the rope...they can tie us all up
Ken: naw, jeb's gonna go for it when w's done
Carl LaFong: Double who?

erictravis: You have a point about the resemblence (bless their pointed little heads)
Lili Lamont: Please don't even say that, K.
Dexter Fong: Bun: What are you calling unpasturized?
erictravis: I have to agree w/Dexter on the rope business.
Bone-E-Boi: More rope? Give me hemp, or I'm going over there.
otonotoR: yeah- and they use unleavened rope...
Ken: don't bogart that hemp......
Dexter Fong: I got a little farm..grow hemp..it's in hempstead
klokwkdog: look at history, Lili - they have the propensity to make absolute fools of themselves and scare the living s*** out of everyone for the next 30 years if they just get a chance
otonotoR: is your hamp sanforized? or at least martinized?
erictravis: Looking for the Democrat internment camps in TX any time now...
Dexter Fong: History is what you can remember
Ken: klok: i forget--is it the jews or the masons in charge this week?
Bunnyboy: Dex: The laugh.com album PAPOON FOR PRESIDENT, which includes the Martian Space Party segment from NOT INSANE, in an extended format, without overdubbed SFX.
Lili Lamont: Hell, klok, they're doing a fine job now. No need to go into the future.
Ken: or, combine them both, jackie mason is in charge
Dexter Fong: Bun: Did you get/hear Fred's recent release of the MSP and is it the same do you know?

otonotoR: and spill all its oil...
Dexter Fong: Kloik: Like they care
erictravis: I wouldn't underestimate what they can get done in the next 2 years, especially if we're in a constant state of war.
Lili Lamont: Unfortunately, think of the damage they can do for at least the next two years. Kiss your civil rights goodbye.
Ken: when they crash and burn, they will blame it all on clinton
Bunnyboy: Buster Poindexter is President?!? Help! Mommy! I wanna WAKE UP!!!

erictravis: As, yes. And we won't have to worry about funding those nasty artists either.
Lili Lamont: Ken: Ashcroft has pulled some classic boners about the Canadians. He's not too popular up there. My daughter was amazed to find out that he was beaten by a dead guy 2 years ago.

Dexter Fong: What a wuss...getting beaten up by a corpse
Ken: we need to take up a collection and buy catherwood a new newkular clock

Merlyn LeRoy: yeah doc, can byron have the clock updated each night automatically?
Ken: he moved to chicago, eric
klokwkdog: that's 50,000 dead guys, eric -- not the same
Dexter Fong: No ET but they knew each other..went to Drexel together

klokwkdog: he makes drinks out of poo?
Ken: lili, poo? beware if there are brown floaties
Rotonoto: isn't that a scream? nothing punitive, you know...
Bunnyboy: Of course, who knows what happened to the $500 million they succeeded in collecting...
Lili Lamont: J.H. Christ, I hope not!
Dexter Fong: Betcha Miss Cleo didn't get all that much
erictravis: As suggested, we should all get our own 900 number.

Bunnyboy: "Big old legs!"
Bunnyboy: Channeling Austin as the Trickster.
Ken: tanks for the mammaries
Lili Lamont: Well, I'm not a professional plumber, so I didn't wear my pants low to flash the top of my ass.
klokwkdog: once you do the fill line, you have to do just about all that's needed to replace the tank-- but the question is, where do you just get a tank?
Lili Lamont: I had to take the tank off the bowl! It's an old system.
Bunnyboy: Yeah, them plumber boys, they's just ASKING for it. Heh...heh...
klokwkdog: see, I told you so

Ken: i lowered my schnook after i raised them
klokwkdog: you use new gaskets and bolts? oh darn...
Lili Lamont: Sounds easy, until you run into corrosion.
otonotoR: egg-zactly! das my point!
