boney: Goes without saying. I said it anyway
cease: bozos was quad too, right?
llanwydd: my favorite has been Living in the Past for many years
ReplicantTweeny: I'll bet it is, Fred. That'd be one complex mix.
Dexter Fong: Fred: What did you listen to the Quad thing on..like surround sound?
pp-oop: yes boney
cease: boney, if we didint know that, we wouldnt be here
ReplicantTweeny: Good point about cable, Bone.

cease: i wonder if elayne has hear the quads?
pp-oop: I remember the bullet that kills nancy going from one ear to another, in my headphones

cease: not insane was another witrh good bits, but not a good album
Dexter Fong: Tween: BUt the technology for that is no longer so does surround work for it?

Dexter Fong: Double clutch when descending a hill, Anita
cease: i think it was hbo
freditor: clary has quite a collection of films

Dexter Fong: Boney: Can you state that as a question?
cease: would lvoe to see it one day, fred
klokwkdog: you really need a black body radiation calculation on the space or object and then convert from Kelvin
boney: So... 32 degrees Celsius does not equal 451 degrees Fahrenheit
cease: itsd hard for me to imagine proc as a serious actor
cease: but i lvoed his hour hour stories of making that flick
doctec: http://www.onlineconversion.com/temperature.htm
pp-oop: adjust for the intrusion of pi-mesons and strange quarks

boney: Bill Murray's car in Where the Buffalo Roam is an old Chevy. I had to wonder

Dexter Fong: I suck my vodka through a micronite filter..it's good but can't smoke at the same time
doctec: and it has a price tag to match.
pp-oop: gin gave me headaches too, is there a good gin?
boney: of course, later on he totally destroys a Cadillac convertible
klokwkdog has a simple rule. No French beer or vodka or assault rifles, no Russian wine, chocolate, or romantic movies
