Secure Electronic Transaction Specification
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:12 pm EST, Feb 12, 2004

A great way to protect all types of transactions. The Credit Card companies refuse to adopt it because it anonymizes people and their transactions, and thus they would no longer be able to sell the data.

Me Thy Creature opens at DramaTech!
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:50 pm EST, Feb  8, 2004

] DramaTech has comisioned original works from Working
] Title Playwrights that will be presented in February. The
] only requirement was that they relate somehow to Mary
] Shelley's Frankenstein, so come see what these
] playwrights have come up with!
] Me, Thy Creature runs in DramaTech Theatre February 6, 7,
] 11-14.

This is a really cool show, and I advise any Memestreamers in the Atlanta area to come check it out. One of the plays is really neat: its a about a Russian Scientist who is trying to destory the virus he made. Another play, about the life of Mary Shelly and her mother stars Memestream's own JaneLane. the final one is about a pair of marriage counselors that just can't stop killing there patients.

Check out the website

213 things you can't do in the Army
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:56 pm EST, Feb  7, 2004

] Once upon a time, there was a SPC Schwarz stationed with
] the Army in the Balkans. SPC Schwarz was either very
] clever or very bored; but probably both, since he managed
] to attempt or be warned about 213 things he wasn't
] allowed to do. He collected those things into a
] hillarious list and posted them to the web. The site
] hadn't been updated in a couple of years and has since
] gone away; but the list is classic, so I saved it.

My Personal Favorites:

-I am not authorized to sell mineral rights.
-Not allowed to add 'In accordance with the prophesy' to the end of answers I give to a question an officer asks me.
-Despite the confusing similarity in the names, the "Safety Dance" and the "Safety Briefing" are never to be combined.

Giving Pakistan a Pass (
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:30 pm EST, Feb  6, 2004

] The general and his government have been lying for years
] about the illegal traffic. Now that their cover has been
] blown by evidence supplied to the United Nations by Libya
] and Iran, they are attempting to pin all the blame on a
] single scientist while stonewalling any international
] investigation. On Wednesday Abdul Qadeer Khan, the chief
] designer of Pakistan's atomic weapons, confessed on
] television to selling his work through an international
] black market and claimed he acted alone -- contradicting
] his previous implication of Mr. Musharraf and other top
] generals.

] What's hard to believe is the Bush
] administration's reaction to it. Rather than moving to
] impose sanctions on Pakistan -- action that might be
] expected for a government that has been caught providing
] the technology for nuclear weapons to such countries as
] Iran, Libya and North Korea -- it has swallowed his
] coverup and even congratulated him on it. "We value the
] commitments Mr. Musharraf has made to prevent the
] expertise in Pakistan from reaching other places," State
] Department spokesman Richard Boucher said yesterday. "We
] think that Pakistan is taking serious efforts to end the
] activities of a dangerous network." As for the pardon of
] Mr. Khan -- who by Pakistan's account is probably the
] worst criminal in the history of nuclear weapons
] proliferation -- "I don't think it's a matter for the
] United States to sit in judgment on," Mr. Boucher said.

Anyone still want to argue that Iraq was/is our biggest threat?

Building your own Segway
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:54 pm EST, Feb  6, 2004

] There is one very important difference between what can
] be built as an experiment and the commercial Segway: The
] commercial one has a lot of safety features, redundancy
] and fool-proofing. Mine has none whatsoever (Well, it
] does have a kill switch so it doesn't go zooming away if
] I fall off, and it does shut down if it finds itself
] tipped more than 45 degrees.) This is pretty darn
] important, and you should think about it very carefully
] before considering building such a thing yourself. With a
] scooter like this, if it stops working for any reason
] (software crash, hardware failure, low battery) you will
] fall, hard, and probably on your face. Imagine zipping
] along at 10 MPH, and suddenly the platform you're
] standing on stops dead. Oh, and there's a T-bar in front
] of you to trip you up if you start to run. So you really
] shouldn't try to replicate this experiment, and I can't
] be responsible for what happens if you read this and try
] to build something.

... damn. Thats neat

Civil Unions: Your alternate union
Topic: Miscellaneous 11:47 am EST, Feb  6, 2004

] A strong America must also value the institution of
] marriage. I believe we should respect individuals as we
] take a principled stand for one of the most fundamental,
] enduring institutions of our civilization. Congress has
] already taken a stand on this issue by passing the
] Defense of Marriage Act, signed in 1996 by President
] Clinton. That statute protects marriage under federal law
] as a union of a man and a woman, and declares that one
] state may not redefine marriage for other states.
] Activist judges, however, have begun redefining marriage
] by court order, without regard for the will of the people
] and their elected representatives. On an issue of such
] great consequence, the people's voice must be heard. If
] judges insist on forcing their arbitrary will upon the
] people, the only alternative left to the people would be
] the constitutional process. Our nation must defend the
] sanctity of marriage. (Applause.)
] The outcome of this debate is important -- and so is the
] way we conduct it. The same moral tradition that defines
] marriage also teaches that each individual has dignity
] and value in God's sight. (Applause.)

How can people keep a straight face when talking about denying gays the right to use the word marriage because we have to preseve the "sanctity" or "moral tradition" of the word, while we live in a country where over half of all of these "moral traditions" end in divorce?

DIANE SAWYER: But, but, again, some, some of the critics have said this combined with the failure to establish proof of, of elaborate terrorism contacts, has indicated that there's just not precision, at best, and misleading, at worst.

PRESIDENT BUSH: Yeah. Look — what — what we based our evidence on was a very sound National Intelligence Estimate. ...

DIANE SAWYER: Nothing should have been more precise?

PRESIDENT BUSH: What — I, I — I made my decision based upon enough intelligence to tell me that this country was threatened with Saddam Hussein in power.

DIANE SAWYER: What would it take to convince you he didn't have weapons of mass destruction?

PRESIDENT BUSH: Saddam Hussein was a threat and the fact that he is gone means America is a safer country.

DIANE SAWYER: And if he doesn't have weapons of mass destruction [inaudible] —

PRESIDENT BUSH: Diane, you can keep asking the question. I'm telling you — I made the right decision for America —


PRESIDENT BUSH: — because Saddam Hussein used weapons of mass destruction, invaded Kuwait. ... But the fact that he is not there is, means America's a more secure country.

[Sigh]... Look how he backpedals and changes the justification for the war. : Transcript: President Bush Interview, Part 2
