12/18/2008

||||||||| 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 December 18, 2008 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Firebroiled into the room, accepts a jar of pennies as a gratuity, mutters something about 7:39 AM, then departs.
Firebroiled: We know for certain,
for instance,
that for some reason,
for some time in the beginnig,
there were hot lumps.

Cold and lonely,

they whirled noiselessly through the black holes of space.
These insignificant lumps came together to form the first union
-- our Sun,
the heating system.
And about this glowing gasbag
rotated the Earth,

a cat’s-eye amoung aggies,
blinking in astonishment

across the Face of Time . . . .

Firebroiled: But not Dexter's face . . . .
||||||||| Catherwood says "7:40 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Firebroiled by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door

||||||||| ah,clem leaves at 8:10 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, December 18, 2008 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "9:02 PM and late as usual, it's Bunnyboy, just back from Billville."
Bunnyboy: First in the room. BRB.
||||||||| Outside, the 9:02 PM uptown bus from Virginia pulls away, leaving Tor Hershman coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Bambi close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:02 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the sitting room.
Tor Hershman: Howdy do, BB
Tor Hershman: Howdy do, Bam
||||||||| Catherwood sneaks into the room, and intones "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:03 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...

Bambi: it's fodder for plants lol
justanotherTweeny: it
H. Stones: My organisation , Friends of the Earth has been fixated on global warming for far too long, one would think that there are no other forms of pollution which need attention

H. Stones: yes Bambi, its important but we have made a good job of making everyone aware of what can be done and what needs to be done but its now in the hands of Industry and Government and we should be dealing with making others aware of what is next
Bambi: and so many saying they don't need to listen to anyone on this global warming/CO2 stuff ... the argument hasn't even begn
cease: good work, stones
Bambi: so much does need to be done but not for global warming ...but for global pollution in general
Principalpoop: rips your liver apart and wraps it around your heart?
H. Stones: humans are to some extend responsible but we have a variable star with long and short cycles which also counts
Dexter Fong: and then sautes it in a spicy Amatricia sauce
H. Stones: we also need to consider the dangers from the toxic cocktail we are being fed by agribusiness and industry
FoolOnHill |

Principalpoop: as long as there is enough pron for everyone....
Dexter Fong: Bambi: If you find yourself short, I have some extra legacy seeds in the deep freeze at the sperm bank
||||||||| "10:28 PM? I'm late!" exclaims justanotherTweeny, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the garden.
Bambi: anyone familiar with the movie Looker?
||||||||| Outside, the 10:28 PM downtown bus from Austin pulls away, leaving GM Tweeny coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.

ah,clem :)
llanwydd: nite clem
GM Tweeny: Have a great weak, all ;)
||||||||| "Hey GM Tweeny!" ... GM Tweeny turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:44 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...

Dexter Fong: I've played that one where you play guitar...Guitar heroes is it?
Principalpoop: lool
Bambi: had even
Dexter Fong: how odd
llanwydd: well, it's been great. I'll see you all at christmas
Bambi: very true stones
Dexter Fong: Night llan
Principalpoop: phooey stones, a ploy for the IPs to charge more, if they took off the limits now, you would not have download and upload limits making you clog the highway
Principalpoop: ciao llan
FoolOnHill: toad o' whey
H. Stones: its not just that Poop, the backbones are at peak too
Bambi: especially with reality being so difficult for the low ones on the eonomic ladder
Principalpoop: that is not what i hear, but ok
H. Stones: You Tube alone accounts for nearly 30% of all net traffic
Principalpoop: they can charge what they want then, and they will
Bambi: they are lying on the backbone b/s
Bambi: imho
H. Stones: true poop, but they cannot even deliver what we are already paying for
Principalpoop: i thought 30% was spam hehe
Bambi: jusst an excuse to raise pirces imho
Bambi: prices
H. Stones: emails and text are use comparatively little bandwidth Poop, its audio and vid streaming. i bet World of Warcraft is another 20%
FoolOnHill: if they're having bandwidth trouble on the backbones, they're doing it wrong
Principalpoop: comcast sells me hundreds of tv channels and there is a bandwidth problem? phooey
Bambi: they want people to think they've hit some imaginary line
H. Stones: TV channels are a different network though
H. Stones: its true there is no shortage of shit, just a hardware snag
Principalpoop: same pipe coming to my house and across the country, huh stones?
Principalpoop: all digital data, you lost me
Principalpoop: que sera sera alors
H. Stones: not at all Poop, the big boys such as fox, cbs et al get allocated load of space but the net itself doesnt make big profits on the whole so its pushe to the back in anticipation of making lods of dosh out of Net 2
H. Stones: sorry about typing but CTS makes it difficult at times
FoolOnHill: your cable tv is not coming down a nationwide backbone
Principalpoop: ok stones
Bambi: cts?
H. Stones: people out in the sticks are still at a huge disadvantage and have to rely on dial up
H. Stones: the same is happening with the cellphone net
Bambi: dialupor cellular
Principalpoop: what is fios?
Merlyn: cya next eek folks, might be on later, might not
Merlyn: should be on xmas
Merlyn: eek!
H. Stones: i dont know Poop, thats one porn site i have not yet visited, is it good ?
Merlyn: ok, that's next eek
||||||||| Merlyn leaves to catch the 10:57 PM train to Minneapolis.
Principalpoop: night M thanks, i won't make you referee this lol
Principalpoop: some kind of twisted cable internet, i think
H. Stones: hava a good week Merlyn
Bambi: well, nytol ...need rest
FoolOnHill: if they'd settle for mere high profit (instead of shooting for insane profit) and focus on improving the network (instead of finding ridiculous ways to milk the existing antieu infrastructure) we'd hav no problem at all
H. Stones: sweet dreams Bambi
FoolOnHill: antique
Bambi: see ya next time :-)
Principalpoop: i can agree with that fool
Principalpoop: thanks keepers of the root
H. Stones: i agree too, but when were these people ever sane
||||||||| At 10:58 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Bambi!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
Principalpoop: how is your price of gas doing stones? dropped like a stone here...
H. Stones: not as fast here Poop but we were already paying three times what you were for a gallon
||||||||| It's 11:00 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| llanwydd - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Principalpoop: right, all of europe did
Principalpoop: i have heard less than 1 euro a litre again in some places
H. Stones: home consumer gas and electricity prices are still sky high too
Principalpoop: food is not dropping, yet
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
H. Stones: its true that some prices are falling as wholesale and retailers cut prices in desperation but redundancy is rife now and rising too, same over there i notice
Principalpoop: yes, 2009 will be a rocky road
H. Stones: if the recession should end, gas prices will shoot up again
H. Stones: this is going to be a really hard winter for people of modest incomes
Principalpoop: it was just a taste, to prepare us for 5+ usd a gallon here...
H. Stones: yes i agree
Principalpoop: we have 1930s depression style tent cities going up already
FoolOnHill gets into the time machine
||||||||| Catherwood fades his voice out like this and cues the organist...
Principalpoop: have to look hard in the news to know about them
H. Stones: over here they now talk of the worst recession we have ever had
Principalpoop: buckle down woskowsky
H. Stones: http://www.petrolprices.com/price-of-petrol.html
H. Stones: the UK is hosed, we are now reaping the harvest sown by Thatcher and Reagan
Principalpoop: same here, taxes are most of the cost
Principalpoop: the massive war debt and the housing fiasco, we are screwed for a few years...
H. Stones: it could easily be more than a few, the treasury is still throwing around money it doesnt have
Principalpoop: interest rates are zero, they even created a phrase, zire or something zero interest rate economy
Principalpoop: soon the government will pay banks to lend money lol
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 11:08 PM and Bightrethighrehighre bounds out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
H. Stones: our chancellor already did that
Principalpoop: hi big
H. Stones: hi there
Bightrethighrehighre: DUCK!!!!....here comes another SHOE....!!!!
Principalpoop: you dog you
H. Stones: oh no its the Shoe Bomber
Principalpoop: stink foot
Bightrethighrehighre: ....tastes just like....leather....
Principalpoop: if I took off my shoes, it would be a toxic gas attack
H. Stones: i no longer wear an occasional python boot
Bightrethighrehighre: Poop: don't inhale....!
Principalpoop: i agree stones, all the youtube videos about that attack probably did break the internet backbones hehe
Dexter Fong: ;
Principalpoop: the one with bush as neo from matrix
Principalpoop: the ammonia wakes me up big
Principalpoop: oops, the firefox update deleted my history, i dont have the link now
FoolOnHill didn't exhale
Principalpoop: a page with about 20 versions of bush ducking shoes and pies and kitties and things
H. Stones: i had to download the patch for IE
Principalpoop: i got one of those too, it will keep nagging you to reboot
FoolOnHill: eye eee patch
Principalpoop: damn thing
H. Stones: am listening to the CNI Twitcast
||||||||| At 11:15 PM, Bightrethighrehighre vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
Principalpoop: nerdnews
H. Stones: yes, but useful
FoolOnHill thumbs his nose at Leo for griping about other services that have "twit" in their name
Principalpoop: they have real hackers on there sometimes
H. Stones: yes i heard them
Principalpoop: i had written drivers in my youth, if i had kept up with it, i could do that
Principalpoop: now it is a foreign language
H. Stones: i was tempted too Poop but i want to drive not develop drivers
Principalpoop: same here
H. Stones: i have learned enough to beat hackers and spyware crap and keep my pc running sweet but i can live without a mac
Principalpoop: but i am at their mercy, like having an automatic transmission instead of a manual
Principalpoop: i see the folks in greece are upset that a lot of companies have been privatized recently but the news people keep saying it was because some kid was killed
H. Stones: the dead kid was merely the catalyst for something which has been brewing for a long time
Principalpoop: dman media
Principalpoop: the main problem is not police killings
Principalpoop: it is thatcher/reagain type economics being forced on them
H. Stones: when did you last hear of any police being prosecuted for anything ?
Principalpoop: they did prosecute the police, and the ritos continued because that is not the problem
Principalpoop: riots
H. Stones: yes, but i had to cut down on ritos
H. Stones: too much weight gain
Principalpoop: i like fritos, i think the original was 5gms of trans fats
Principalpoop: per chip
FoolOnHill: Friots, and Doriots
Principalpoop: sounds like italian families
Principalpoop: but you are right, violence is not a good idea anymore for social change
Principalpoop: need to make the folks elect people to enact fairness
Principalpoop: and good policies
H. Stones: violence plays into the hands of fascism, terrorism is a fascist act which invokes more police and military force which is an even greater fascist act
Principalpoop: the palestinians had valid complaints, but they screwed up trying to get public opinion on their side...
Principalpoop: exactly stones
Principalpoop: you must keep your sense of humor or what the fuck lol
H. Stones: after all, the police force up north was created by gang bosses and down south by plantation owners
Principalpoop: you become as bad as the bad guys
H. Stones: Liverpool handled the slave trade from the UK but the money was put up by manchester which needed the cotton
Principalpoop: sure, sheriffs were hired to capture peasants who bothered the rich folks
H. Stones: in some ways, slavery was the first Global Business
Principalpoop: the opium war was a good idea
H. Stones: yes, my pipe is more lethal than yours lol
Principalpoop: the cia is still mixed up in selling that stuff around the world
H. Stones: yes Air America
Principalpoop: easy money, and creates the need for international police
H. Stones: they exported medical supplies etc during the Vietnam war and had empty planes coming back untill someon thought up a good way of filling them up
Principalpoop: our general in afghanistan said they would not stop illegal production of opium because the economy needs it lol
H. Stones: the problem for all thinking people Poop is that that there is a truly chronic and huge lack of awareness and knowledge of the way the world really works
Principalpoop: what a scam, and the streets of germany and england and chicago are full of lives destroyed
Principalpoop: it is a turtle on top on an elephant
Principalpoop: everybody knows that
H. Stones: and theres a huge political and military machine geared up to ensure it stays that way
H. Stones: this is why i currently fight fluoride, it really does dumb people down and make them passive and pathetic
Principalpoop: somebody must protect me from obama
Principalpoop: obama might come and get me
H. Stones: i guess it will be business as usual until they elect a genuinely revolutionary black president rather than a moderate black white man
Principalpoop: i kept saying, he is whiter than most white folks
H. Stones: but still, lets not knock the man when hes only just started, lets give him a couple of weeks then knock him
Principalpoop: cabinet choices have been approved by cheney for christs sake
H. Stones: yes he has the usual bunch of fascists around him mongering wars
Principalpoop: i wanted cheney to moan and groan at the choices
H. Stones: i want cheney to moan and groan as i kick the shit out of him for the dead iraqis
H. Stones: i hope i make my politcial position clear
Principalpoop: maybe they sat obama down and gave him the world, you want to be like JFK huh?
Principalpoop: word
FoolOnHill: they all work for the same people
H. Stones: yes, i heard the Bill Hicks rap where they take the new president into a small cinema and show him a film of the JFK assassination with lots of different camera angles no one ever see before
Principalpoop: who sold saddam the deadly gas he used his own people? oops, forget all about that....
H. Stones: and at the end just say, Any questions mr president ?
FoolOnHill: JFK challenged the Federal Reserve Act
Principalpoop: and the military and the cia
FoolOnHill: they weren't going to have that
H. Stones: i heard one theory that Pearl Harbour, JFK killing, 911 were all planned by the Rockefella group
H. Stones: takes me back to reading Catch 22
FoolOnHill: there were actually some United States notes printed and some circulated. they were quickly recalled immediately after JFK was assassinated.
Principalpoop: they could claim it now, and the media would not care
FoolOnHill: (Our usual currency as Federal Reserve notes, and belong to that cabal of banks—not the government)
FoolOnHill: are
Principalpoop: look at the pentagon lawn and tell me an airplane flew over that at 500 mph and the blast from the engines did not touch the grass, BS and who cares...
Principalpoop: right, they are a private concern
FoolOnHill wonders why that emdash got mangled
H. Stones: and where did all the video footage go from the most videod place on the planet ?
Principalpoop: and no planes to protect the headquarters of the most super power country on the planet
FoolOnHill: it went to the ministry of truth
Principalpoop: i want a job there fool, i could do that
H. Stones: the most chilling thing to me is that in all cases, the spanish bombing,s the 911 attacks and the London bombings, they all happend at exactly the same times and locatons at which exercise of an identical nature were taking place
Principalpoop: just a coincidence stones
H. Stones: clearly yes
Principalpoop: happens all the time, now
H. Stones: You are under arrest !
Principalpoop: i knew that, we all are
H. Stones: Step away from the computer
Principalpoop: no, they like us at the pc, they know where we are, and exactly what we are doing
Principalpoop: like having a gps bracelet attached to our typing wrists
H. Stones: well how come they dont know about this 2000 megaton, planet buster suitcase bomb i just finished, until now ?
H. Stones: i have a spare, do you want one
FoolOnHill blows up the world
Principalpoop: go ahead and use it, that supports facsism
H. Stones: true, but not for long
H. Stones: maybe a couple of milliseconds
Principalpoop: they have the space station ready
FoolOnHill: not for much
Principalpoop: almost ready
H. Stones: yes, they can take pics of the end of the world and sell them to the martians
Principalpoop: not the martians, the guys from buckaroo bonzai
H. Stones: sorry, i already signed with the Martians
Principalpoop: with no Earth, that contract is void
H. Stones: nonesense, i used a law frim from Alpha Centauri
Principalpoop: the phrase Earthing as in Earthling Stones, becomes meaningless
H. Stones: no worries i used the term Lunoid
H. Stones: for tax purposes
Principalpoop: that might work
Principalpoop: you were smart, that might work
H. Stones: and i got Auditors from Ganymede, they are the best
Principalpoop: those alpha centauri guys must be sharks
Principalpoop: i lost all my money in enron
H. Stones: is that one of the moons of Jupiter ?
Principalpoop: bush was his buddy, i did not think they could get caught
H. Stones: i think someone noticed when the lights started to go out
Principalpoop: i think bush had unfinished issues with him, i did not know about
H. Stones: anyway poop, this isng getting the world dominated
H. Stones: isnt
Principalpoop: go watch american idol
Principalpoop: calm down
H. Stones: so i will have to be off and phone Honey and see how deep the snow is now
Principalpoop: anything on tv
Principalpoop: give her our hopes
Principalpoop: and rock on boogaloo
Principalpoop: good evening your majesty
Principalpoop: thanks for cheering me up fool
H. Stones: ok Poopster, will do, have a good week, see you on Messer maybe, and farewell to you Fool on the Hill, hope the view is good
Principalpoop: hold that bus, here I go

Ben Flaetion Super Snoop: Put this in your archive, Catherwood.
