] "You let your hair down, and it's that girl's club,
] slumber party feel," said Teri Jaworksi, who works out at
] the S Factor, an all-women studio in Los Angeles.

The Cheetah in Atlanta offers pole dancing lessons. Apparently they are quite popular with a waiting list of over 2 months. While some are what you would expect (brides to be wanting to surpise their husbands, strippers from a lower quality clubs wanting to be better, etc) more and more are just randon ladies wanting some fun.

] of a research effort.

[ Oh *man* that sucks! You can't even hyperbolize it, like, "That sucks like ...", because anything you put in there for ... is probably less bullshit than "accidentally giving yourself Ebola." Sure, she may be fine (god willing), but shit man, that's so, so not good. -k] - Researcher isolated after possible Ebola exposure - Feb. 19, 2004

We absolutely must remove this man from office in Nov

] The chief financier told investigators that Khan also
] said a "certain number" of centrifuges -- sophisticated
] machines that can be used to enrich uranium for weapons
] and other purposes -- were flown to Libya direct from
] Pakistan in 2001-02.

And. Yet. Bush. Does. Nothing.

WTF? Here is a country: run by a military leader; is currently engaged in its 4th war with India ( ; both of which who have detonated nuclear weapons ( (; who sponsers Kashmir terrorists (; whose government has sold enriched fucking uranium and tools to enrich more uranium to a radical Islamic state,

Yet. Bush. Does. Nothing!:

And yet people insist this was a war about WMD, and not other reasons.

500+ dead American is a damn cheap price for the US to buy our own OPEC member and never be faced with an embargo again

Slashdot | An Ignition Interlock In Every Car?

I'm going to have to borrow one of Abaddon's lines here: What kind of no talent ass clowns do they elect in New Mexico that come up with an utterly retarded scheme like this? I understand that state's are low on money, but I expected to see a bill to bring the Roswell alien's out of storage and charge folks a nickel to see them instead of something so mindless.

Bright Shining Lies, Blistering Truth by Karen Kwiatkowski
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:11 pm EST, Feb 19, 2004

] Retired USAF Colonel and former National War College
] Professor Sam Gardiner has analyzed this phenomenon of
] con as it relates to Bush's current adventures in democracy
] through occupation. Beyond the obvious fabrications that
] you and I might have seized upon, Colonel Gardiner painstakingly
] identifies 50 discrete and mostly successful efforts of this
] administration to mislead the American people, the Congress,
] and the world.

I heard Lt Col Karen Kwiatkowski on the Radio today. While much of the writing here is so harshly anti-Bush that it is quickly dismisses most people (See "Rules For Radicals" by Saul D Alinsky for the proper way), this piece and its PDF links are quite interesting. The 6 part analysis systematically shows that members of the Bush Administration allowing new stories and other information to develope and grow in an effort to push American's to support a war, when they knew the information was incorrect. A very good read, well worth the time.

] Asked about the 2.6 million jobs forecast, McClellan

] created rather than economic modeling."
] He quoted Bush as saying, "I'm not a statistician. I'm
] not a predictor."

He should have also added "I can't do math." We've lost 2.2 million, and he thinks not only can we stop the bleeding, but gain 2.6 million jobs. In 10 months.

News about Ender's Game: The Movie
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:48 pm EST, Feb 18, 2004

[Harris already knew Ender's Game well; Dougherty only read it in preparation for this assignment. "That's an ideal combination," said Card. "One of the team is absolutely familiar with the elements of the story that the most committed fans will expect to see, while the other will be able to make sure it isn't just a movie for people who already love the book.]

Ahhh yes, lets look at some other great Hollywood momments where they want to make sure the movie isn't "just for fans of the book".

At Disney:
SW1: Wow, Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. what an amazing piece of literature! Lets start out by..

SW2: [INTERRUPTING] Yeah... if you live in the 1800's. So I'm thinking ships, a pair of aliens that are always hitting each other, and .... no wait, get this!... ROBOTS! In fact, lets get rid of the whole island thing... and make it a...

Marketing: Talking piece of cheese?

SW2: NO! a whole Planet!. With Cartoons! A naked-Jessica Rabit-meets-StarTrek-but-not-campy-planet! Thats what we'll call it: Naked Planet!

Marketing: Hmmm I like it I like it.... but lets change the whole thing. And we _have_ to call it Treasure Planet!

SW2: Yeah Treasure Planet! A kind of Judy-Garland-on-drugs-meets-drunken-Brando-orgie-of-killing.

Marketing: With a dog. Kids like Dogs. And we have to cast Paris Hilton. So we can all nail her. [drools]

SW1: uhhhhh....Guys? The books is about pirates... and gold. We have the chance to get kids interested in reading older books. I mean this tale is really a beautiful story about the coming of age of a boy who...

SW2: [INTERRUPTS] FINE! killing robot _PIRATES_, who ... like gold?

Marketing: No! Make them _Golden_ Robot pirates... it will make a great Cereal Tie in. "Kelloggs Golden Robots!" We'll be showering in money for weeks! While nailing Paris Hilton!

SW2: Yeah! Hilton can play the Kids mom! She needs an operation, but the kid is poor, and so he has to kill all the golden robots and melt them down!

Marketing: How about, the mom needs her fillings replaced! Gold fillings will bring in the "Urban" crowd.

SW1: ... While we are at it, why don't we just hook up a generator to RLS' corpse and generate electricity from the spinning?

Marketing: Oh No, no way! Corpses didn't test well with the focus groups. Lets make it ... a spinning piece of cheese! Kraft will be busting down our door!

SW2: Yeah! And the Cheese can give advice! ... Like Jimminy Cricket!

I mean come on, Besides LOTR, and possibly Silence of the Lambs, they _ALWAYS_ fuck up the movies.
