||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for January 15, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Public Citizen', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:15 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Public Citizen: The True Bush Baby is coming home. Remember what the Great Spirit said? If we did what we were supposed to do, and lived according to the Plan, Bush Baby would finish his work in the East and come back to us, even though we don't want him.
||||||||| Public Citizen is defenestrated just as the clock strikes 8:15 PM.
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:53 PM, dragging Yämalet Prince of Møto by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Yämalet Prince of Møto: No one to vouch
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Merlyn LeRoy into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:54 PM, then departs.
Merlyn LeRoy: vouching to gomorrah
Yämalet Prince of Møto: The kingdom is empty, not even ghosts are about. Rumour has it they are spooked
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Hello Merl
Merlyn LeRoy: 'allo
Yämalet Prince of Møto: and oi
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, January 15, 2004 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Merlyn LeRoy: and reasonably on time, too
Yämalet Prince of Møto: random happenstance
Yämalet Prince of Møto: well my water has frozen four times in the last 3 days
Merlyn LeRoy: I didn't even know you were pregnant
Yämalet Prince of Møto: I have a well
Merlyn LeRoy: hard to add antifreeze if you plan on drinking it...
Yämalet Prince of Møto: I wish it wouldn't freeze, I don't like Ice cubes coming from the faucet
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Gotta love this weather
Merlyn LeRoy: look on the bright side; if civilization collapses, you'll still have water if it's warm enough
Yämalet Prince of Møto: True
Merlyn LeRoy: where are you located? I'm in MN, it isn't too cold here
Yämalet Prince of Møto: NY, it is too cold here
Yämalet Prince of Møto: The order got sporked up and we got YOUR weather
Merlyn LeRoy: My wife's flying to NYC tomorrow morning; how's the weekend look?
||||||||| Dr. Headphones enters at 9:07 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:07 PM and late as usual, it's llanwydd, just back from Billville."
Dr. Headphones: hello dear friends
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Slightly warmer
llanwydd: you guys are early
Merlyn LeRoy: well, that's something
Merlyn LeRoy: it's 9:08 PM, you're late
Dr. Headphones: well, it's 905 on the eastern front

Dr. Headphones: the early worm does avoid the bird, doesn't he?
llanwydd: hard to explain
llanwydd: no birds flying today
Dr. Headphones: then don't waste your time trying to 'splain
||||||||| Catherwood leads Woody One inside, makes a note of the time (9:11 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Yämalet Prince of Møto: tHe birds are in Miami

Woody One: Aw Il I'm sorry. I'd heard about the east.
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'klokwkdog-sickle', just granted probation at 9:13 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

Yämalet Prince of Møto: No way
Dr. Headphones: i'm high on life (and the caffeine in my folger's)
Woody One: Yep. All the way to the craggy shore.
klokwkdog-sickle: went out and insulated my outside spickets (even the one that's turned off)
Merlyn LeRoy: if Life cereal ever gets around to adding cocaine...
Woody One: Nobody high? Bummer.

Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Merl: Still

Merlyn LeRoy: but a matchmaking service run by the IRS sounds awful
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Hey, I dig them Mexican Chicas
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Mamacita
Merlyn LeRoy: hey, that's it, you can choose a tax refund or a mexican girlfriend
Dr. Headphones: merl: i don't know about that. i'd gladly trade what i had for someone in the 38% bracket
Dr. Headphones: or should i say "in the 38DD bracket"?
Merlyn LeRoy: my interest is rising

Dexter Arch Duke of Fong wondered how long that would take

Yämalet Prince of Møto: I'm all fo tax cuts, too, as long as the govt doesn't spend us into 3K4
klokwkdog-sickle: nite, woody
Yämalet Prince of Møto: If the govt is gonna promote straight marriage does that mean actual sex ed in schools?
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Marriage sure...sex...never..unless its to procreate, then just don't enjoy it
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Gotta show the lil knippers the "ins and outs" so to speak
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "9:29 PM and late as usual, it's Coal N. Droll, just back from Billville."
klokwkdog-sickle: they don't know what sex ed is yet?
Dr. Headphones: of course not. that's the duty of the christian parents.
Merlyn LeRoy: but not the ropes
Coal N. Droll: Hiya
Dr. Headphones: hi coal
Yämalet Prince of Møto: oi

Yämalet Prince of Møto is in the "against" column
klokwkdog-sickle: ken - i refuse to answer on the grounds that they might incinerate me
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: I'm on the IR list

Coal N. Droll: Clean-up on Pennsylvania Avenue...
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: I wish..........

Yämalet Prince of Møto: Indeed
klokwkdog-sickle: the JPL guys analyzed it and analyzed it and concluded that one peak was definitely...CO2. Then they decided that another IR peak was something called "dust". Then, they allowed that a whole bunch of squiggles near the edge of far IR might be "ice crystals"

Yämalet Prince of Møto bets the Martians are laughing their asses off at us by now
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Ok
llanwydd: the face on mars is smirking
Dr. Headphones: for every rich person who saved $1000, 10 poor people have to pay $100 more
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Cat: you all have funny money w/a lady on it
klokwkdog-sickle: HEY, furriner. You look at my gas bill and say that. Frigging canadian bloodsuckers should be sending me a free turkey or something; it's worse than the Mob
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Ilan: That's not Mar's face, they superimposed Bush's
Yämalet Prince of Møto: That explains everything
klokwkdog-sickle: everyone see the Google search page logo today? Go Rover!

klokwkdog-sickle: you didn't see the Rover sliding off of the 'E' in "Google"?? and the LGMs on the 'g', Cat? I didn't know there was a Canadian Google...
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Discounted 40%

Dr. Headphones: i saw a headline that some police department wants to ban glow-sticks. says they usually indicate the use of illegal drugs
Merlyn LeRoy: www.google.ca is canada, www.google.us gets USA

||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:40 PM, dragging mrmuckle, Inc by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"

Yämalet Prince of Møto: Cit's like 2° warmer than us
Elayne: Not yet, Cat, but we left the washing-up bowl by a window in the kitchen which was open just a crack...
Yämalet Prince of Møto: City
Elayne: And a few minutes later, the few drops of water in it were all ice.
Dr. Headphones: In some districts, inhabited by Latin Americans, Filipinos, Spaniards and Negroes, half the violent crimes are attributed to marijuana craze. Dr. Lee Rice of San Antonio reports that eighty per cent of all the murders committed by Mexicans are done while the killers are drugged by marijuana. THE CHRISTIAN CENTURY - June 29, 1938
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: COuld be martian ice crystals
Elayne: I was hoping to take tomorrow off (I'm taking next week as a vacation week, hoping to go to some employment agencies if it's a bit less frigid)...
mrmuckle, Inc: should I have a washing-up bowl???
Elayne: ...and my boss won't let me. He says I need to come in and do stuff tomorrow.
Merlyn LeRoy: at least now they're safe on crack
Elayne: Yeah, the Martian Rover Spirit is laughing at Mount Washington. 99 below with wind-chill.
Merlyn LeRoy: and limbaugh can get his drugs from his mexican housekeeper
llanwydd: I bought a can of soda at Wal-Mart yesterday and it froze immediately. I couldn't drink it

Yämalet Prince of Møto: darng minority groups, they get all the GOOD drugs cheaply
cease: it's up on the pot tv site today, which is at www.pot-tv.net
Yämalet Prince of Møto: goddam liberal media
Elayne: Although their website says it's "only" minus 89 w/ wind chill... http://www.mountwashington.org/
Dr. Headphones: “In the past we have had officers of this department shot and killed by marihuana addicts and we have traced the act of murder directly to the influence of marihuana, with no other motive. We have found from long experience and dealing with this type of criminal that marihuana is probably the most dangerous of all our narcotic drugs.” J.F. Taylor, Chief of Detectives L.A.P.D - [Fraternal Order of Police Journal - Jan. 1933]
Merlyn LeRoy: do you think pot-tv calls kettle-tv black?
klokwkdog-sickle: cat -- i get google of canada via "www.google.ca", but US google via "www.google.com"...
Elayne: Say, can these marihuana addicts do something about the weather? Honestly, I mean everyone talks about it...
Dr. Headphones: lol, merl!
cease: good one, merl
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Wonder what their recepie for Corned Beef Hash is like?

Dr. Headphones: hash and corned beef. mmmmm
Dr. Headphones: i had some day-old kfc (extra crispy) tonight. no hash or beef for me
Merlyn LeRoy: cat, www.google.us should force you to get the US server
llanwydd: I never bother with Google since msn seems to have everything I need
klokwkdog-sickle: what about "www.google.us"?
llanwydd: Yahoo seems just as good
Yämalet Prince of Møto: That's the Canadian govt-at least 50% Ca. Content on all 'puters in country. No US stuff for you
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Merl: Homefield Security won't let Canadians into US Google
mrmuckle, Inc: I once ate some majic mushrooms along with my dinner of beef stew and BOY! did I get sick! A serious imbalance of alkaloids...
cease: no, nothing gets me out of google.ca
Dr. Headphones: llan: billy gates would like you to believe that he can deliver it all. don't believe him!
Merlyn LeRoy: billy gates bluff
Elayne: Oh man, that Mount Washington page is pretty cool. Listen to this:
klokwkdog-sickle: yeah, get used to the .us page, Cat. we're going to make the rest of the world adhere to our rule of law, er form of search page
Merlyn LeRoy: I used to play that
Yämalet Prince of Møto: We need a troll to eat him
Elayne: "It is difficult to convey just how cold it is outside. Further still, it is in fact hard to fully appreciate the cold with layers of synthetics, down, and wool protecting every square inch of our bodies. There is a simple solution to these problems: Take your gear off and run outside! (we are trained professionals, do not try this at home!) Pete, our summit manager, promptly informed us that this was not in compliance with our “no skin exposed” policy, but then left the room to check on the furnaces. Upon our return to the building, shivering uncontrollably, we were still baffled as how to explain the severity of the cold. Jason came to the rescue stating, “It is 100F warmer in here than it was out side!” Tim then went one step further by factoring in winds that were gusting to 92MPH..."
klokwkdog-sickle: i don't hear anything...
Elayne: "The combination of the air temp of –39F and the wind brought the wind chill to a remarkable –97F. That gave us a grand total difference of indoor and outdoor “effective” temperatures of 170F!"
Dr. Headphones: heat stroke!
Elayne: That was Summit Intern Neil Lareau, truly one of the barmiest blokes atop Mount Washington.
cease: ii'm having a lot of trouble chatting here today.
Yämalet Prince of Møto: You can cook stuff at 170
llanwydd: I actually am a little worried abouth the weather. Have you noticed it's worse than they told us? There's some kind of geothermal conspiracy
Elayne: Yam, it's the temp difference between indoor and outdoor, not the actual temp. :)
klokwkdog-sickle: they should've stood under one of the steam pipes in the furnace room, then gone outside and whacked each other with birch sticks
Yämalet Prince of Møto: party pooper :P
cease: every couple of minutes i get a box in the middle of the screen from microsoft telling me to beat rush hour traffic by ordering it's new pc. i can't get rid of the motherfucker
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Cat et al: Yes, the screen has been jumping every so often
Dr. Headphones: llan: well, who's responsible? al qaeda? the jews? the masons? star men from orion?
Coal N. Droll: Spring is around the corner..?
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Cat you got Mozilla?
cease: no
Dr. Headphones: i love mozilla :)
llanwydd: I'll bet it's Halliburton
klokwkdog-sickle: global warming means increased energy in the atmosphere, not necessarily that everything melts into a puddle right away
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Get it, or a stable build of thunderbird. Then you have no worries
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Err Firebird
cease: i'm on internet explorer but i also have opera. maybe i should try that
Dr. Headphones: as long as you dig deeply enough to find the stinking popup blocker box to check
Coal N. Droll: Have Moz 1.5 and waiting for 1.6 after beta test
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Opera might do
cease: dig deeply where?
Dr. Headphones: i watched "la traviata" when i was in florida. a nice experience (with subtitles)
Dr. Headphones: cat: into the hidden preferences in mozilla
klokwkdog-sickle: internet explorer and outlook express is just asking to get munged by some common virus
cease: alas, i am mozilla-less
Yämalet Prince of Møto: I found the steenking poopup blocker in setup. Of corse Zone Alarm has one and so does History Kill
cease: i have zone alarm. are you saying it's not working?
klokwkdog-sickle: none of my experiences ever had subtitles, but maybe I just didn't use enough magic agent at the start...
llanwydd: Opera is for Italians
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bone-E-Boi inside, makes a note of the time (9:54 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dr. Headphones: hi bone
klokwkdog-sickle got into the hidden preferences in Mozilla and it took a week to find the way back out
llanwydd: Why can't they do one in Esperanto?
Coal N. Droll: Hey Bone
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Hi BEB
klokwkdog-sickle: take a flashlight!
Merlyn LeRoy: hey BEB
Elayne: Hi Bone-E-Boi!
Coal N. Droll: Take the Local or Esperanto..?
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Ken in firebird: Tools>Options>web Features
Dr. Headphones: klok: sometimes in mozilla type "about:config" in the address window of the browser
Dr. Headphones: yam: i downloaded fire/thunderbird but haven't used them
klokwkdog-sickle: or at least, opera is for europeans who are crazy enough to spend revenues from taxpayers on it rather than on large corporations that will create jobs. like Enron...
Yämalet Prince of Møto: I love Firebird, it's my default browser
cease: i looked in zone alarm but couldn't see anything to bloc popups
Coal N. Droll: T-bird for mail only
Yämalet Prince of Møto: You got the freebie ZA

Yämalet Prince of Møto: We're a droll lot, we are
Dr. Headphones: elayne is the only "normal" one on the name list
Bone-E-Boi: She's sensible. I nominate her Margaret Dumont.
llanwydd: just occured to me I never do anything creative with my name
Yämalet Prince of Møto: I'm rumoured to be written by Shakespere, but he's too busy gorging on Bacon
Elayne: Tell me about it, Dr. H. I wish I could remember everyone's real names. :)
cease: i thought you already had, llan
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Ilan: YOu've already done enough =)
Bone-E-Boi: Can't you see I'm trying to say I love you.
Yämalet Prince of Møto: I'm Chuck
Dr. Headphones: i hear shakespeare wrote "the star spangled banner". it wasn't francis scott key, it wasn't francis bacon
Elayne: Are you really, Yam?
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: And I'm not Dave
klokwkdog-sickle: heck, i can't even remember anyone's fake name
Yämalet Prince of Møto: E: yes
Elayne: Oh, I know who you are, Dex. I actually remember the names of people with whom I occasionally lunch. ;)
cease: i thought charlie brown was chuck
klokwkdog-sickle: c'mon, Ken - everyone knows that Jimmy Hendrix wrote it!
Yämalet Prince of Møto: Charles
Coal N. Droll: Anythynge You Want To,...I guess
Yämalet Prince of Møto: as per Marcie
klokwkdog-sickle: 2 minute warning
Dr. Headphones: that's "jimi" to his friends ;)
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Rev. Llanwydd Chang in through the front door at 10:00 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Klok: Was that a Poetry alert?
Dr. Headphones: let us prey
Rev. Llanwydd Chang: how's that
klokwkdog-sickle: i have to fade to gray in a sec. or two
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn LeRoy: should the other llan get killed off?

Lili Lamont: Rev: Just once in your life, you should go. I recommend San Francisco.
Bubbas Brain: I heard a thing on NPR that the FCC said you could say "fucking" as long as it wasn't used as a verb.
Bunnyboy: 4 or 5, and Karl Malden. Nothing but tributes from now on?
cease: did they jump off a ferry? why do you ask, bun?
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Bun: In what sense?
Bubbas Brain: But now they're taking it back.
cease: you mean the ucla thing?
Dr. Headphones: bub: michael powell is trying to reverse that now. xtian right jumped on him
Merlyn ''the Reaper'' LeRoy: fuckin' A
klokwkdog-sickle: michael powell is going to fix any more "bono moments", though, in the future!
Merlyn ''the Reaper'' LeRoy: charles rocket is vindicated

Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Night Rev
Dr. Headphones: all hail c2c! g'nite, llan
Lili Lamont: Good night, Rev. Sweetg dreams.

Bone-E-Boi: Also, how do you get KUSC in Vancouver, Canada? It's located in Southern California. Webstream.
Bubbas Brain: It's moot anyway.
klokwkdog-sickle: CSPAN video archives has Powell's National Press Club address. He's uncompromising (thinking of all the big bucks he'll rake in once out in industry again)
Bunnyboy: Button? I thought it was a "knob". *wink*
Lili Lamont: I didn't hear that.
Bunnyboy: 5 dollahs
Bone-E-Boi: You can pee right into the webstream. And that's important.
Dr. Headphones: bone: don't do it, they bottle it downstream and sell at walmart
Dexter Arch Duke of Fong: Don't listen to the yellow broadcasts
Bubbas Brain sings "...it makes me feel so dirty when they start talking cute. I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot."
klokwkdog-sickle: BEB -- isn't MSNBC site bad enough?
Bone-E-Boi: KUSC-FM is a classical station. It seems odd that they'd broadcast the Surrealist.

Bone-E-Boi: Your laptop is where downstream pee comes from.
Lili Lamont: Bon soir, Bun.
