  1. Single white female college student seeks travel companion and lover for Costa Rica trip. Hey, this shouldn't be a problem? Just as long as he meets stringent personal and political guidelines: "He should be intelligent, ethical, healthy and fit, monogamous, kind, generous, very affectionate and sexual. No married men, smokers, STDs, or religion, and must be pro-choice and pro-gay rights. For long-term compatibility he should be a libertarian and share a lot of my interests and hobbies." Unfortunately Robert Heinlein is dead, and he probably wouldn't have shared her admiration for Blink 182.

  2. Let's go play in the carwash! Before and after pictures demonstrate the problem.

  3. The science folks are finally finding out that the mad old sea captains were right about the giant waves that kill ships.

  4. Here's a freakin' hilarious Toyota ad (mpeg video).

  5. Get your vexations on with Satie & Co.!

I'm not sure if Robert Heinlein would be her perfect match if she read Stranger In A Strange Land. I mean, it's obvious that monogamy was not in the world that he dreamed of.

There are ten libertarian guys for every libertarian gal.

She will get a million replies.

Let's see... an uptight, health-obsessed (translation: no fat cats), militantly atheist libertarian. Yeah, that sounds like someone easy to get along with.

Grnrnngh. It makes me mad when women act like you're an asshole for suggesting they might get hurt. It's backhanded blaming the victim. I don't care how tough you are or how cool you look with your switchblade, there's always going to be someone just as good or better and you have to sleep sometime.

On a happier note:

"Let's drop the pretense of these comments caring about this woman and admit them for what they are: a bunch of looters and moochers telling Reardon how his steel will never work."

You're welcome.

Yeah. That really bothered me. That, "I have touched a knife AND a gun, so obviously I can handle myself in any situation!" What an arrogant jackass. Newsflash: even muscular, tough people get beat up every now and then.

I look forward to the aftermath entry, either complaining about what a jerk the guy turned out to be or complaining about how she got robbed and shivved. Man, didn't see THAT one coming.

It's a small world

Did you notice that the Toyota ad was run in Burma ?

FYI: I found exactly what I was looking for, and it only took a month! Is the internet great or what?!
