They should have just put the torch in a tank and used that instead of running it.

I'm sure the Chinese have a few they can loan us.

So is a dukw a seep? Or is a seep a modified jeep? Dammit.

Why does the military have to use so many abbreviations? If you don't know the name of something, can't you just point and grunt?

She was proud of the fact that they drove the torch relay away, because that meant (and i paraphrase here) all these people here to support the Chinese government wouldn't be able to.

Really? Watching the Olympic Torch = Supporting Communist China???


No, there was actually a counter-protest planned solely to support the Chinese government.

That's what all the people with giant-sized Chinese and Olympic flags are there for.

Kilted_Dude: What is a bay quacker anyway?

Is it really THAT offensive?


Depends. If you are in the Tenderloin after midnight and someone offers you one, I would politely decline.

Have we started blaming Israel yet?

iamrobot: The truck is both right and left handed?

uhh..I think it means it goes both ways, or at least is a little curious.


Oooohhh amphibious. Why didn't you say so?

I saw a duck boat in Japan.

proud of that
 
2008-04-09 06:41:23 PM
cause it's easier to point and just throw a few letters together then no one knows you don't know what your talking about

I was hoping a bunch of protesters would show up in pants, white shirt, dark tie, with briefcase and jacket in hand.

But that's not what she said. She was proud that San Francisco had "unanimously rejected the torch" (but they really didn't) and implied that EVERYONE along the road was either Free Tibet or Support Red China.
 
2008-04-09 06:42:57 PM
In Tibet, the Chinese troops will use the special clubs that have the nails thru them tonight.

I thought it was a bicycle.

/Obscure? I don't think so.
/We keep our bicycles locked up in racks at night.

Off to Golden Gate Park.
 
2008-04-09 06:44:05 PM
Who is more repugnant, the Gippies or the Hooks?
 
2008-04-09 06:44:58 PM
Bailing on the bridge eh?

Pussies.
 
2008-04-09 06:45:03 PM
Or maybe SFO?

Kezar maybe? Right next to hippy central (haight ashbury).
 
2008-04-09 06:46:55 PM
KGO is guessing 19th Ave -> 280 -> 380 -> SFO


Nice thing about that route is that protestors won't be following them well going that way out.

sycocowz: how do you know tank man had a tie?

He was a Harvard man.

/I'm going to look up the vid and pic. I saw it live and I thought I remember him catching his tie in the wind.

/Maybe I'm wrong.
 
2008-04-09 06:47:15 PM
well if it's going to be at the "undisclosed location" does that mean Cheney will be there... he seems to like that place.
 
2008-04-09 06:47:52 PM
It's just been reported that all this is being run by the Chinese government, who directed the FBI, DOJ, Secret Service, etc.
 
2008-04-09 06:48:16 PM
i guess there are no heroes in SF.
 
2008-04-09 06:48:38 PM
Did I just hear that right on Channel 11??

The FBI And Secret Service were following the orders of the Chinese Government?
 
2008-04-09 06:48:56 PM
The guys in blue are 'torch guardians' they come from the top police academy in China and are supposed to know 5 languages for this job. However Lord Coe (who is in charge of London 2012) claimed they were thugs who didn't speak the language and were rather rough.

And by rough I mean they were heavy handed with the carrier, the protestors and now claims the police were roughed up.

Personally this olypiad is going to be the mother of all Farces. Chinese people are going to be getting a major taste of the western world, including our right to protest without having a tank in our faces.
 
2008-04-09 06:49:01 PM
I am glad the games are not in the US this year. Can you imagine the protests?

I'm hearing that on NBC as well. That's crazy.
 
2008-04-09 06:49:58 PM
I went down there to watch the torch go by.
Some hippy was yelling "China lies" a Chinese man near me yells back "How does China lie?"

crickets erupt from the hippy. Then.."China lies!"
Stupid farking dirty hippies don't even know what they are protesting about. Just because the Beastie Boys say free Tibet they jump all over it.

Take a farking shower and get a job losers.
Sometimes I hate SF

So did the Chinese win? Or did the Homosexuals?

Or did George Takei win EVERYTHING?

The House of representatives has passed a resolution calling oin china to stop the crackdown in Tibet.

That'll fix it.

Yep, It's gotta be SFO, unless they get on 280 north and back to McCovey Cove.

/but I doubt it
 
2008-04-09 06:53:01 PM
So... when the Olympics come to Vancouver and we do a torch relay, does our Prime Minister get to order around the Secret Service and the FBI? I am liking this new erosion of American sovereignty!

Let's have SIX banana boats and have them do doughnuts on the Golden Gate Bridge and make all the Secret Service guys wear Tim Hortons uniforms! Hell yeah!

I was wrong. Tank man had his collar open. Brave guy with or without one. Hero.

It annoys me that Takei's rainbow balloons are in the wrong order.

Closing ceremonies on the tarmac at the airport.. Niiiiice.

I heard that too.

What.The.Hell?

This is one of the most insane clusterfarks I've ever seen.

Dumbasses on NBC 11 think that 380 is in Daly City, it's in San Bruno.

Yup, the Channel 11 reporter on the bus has announced that they're headed right to the airport.

That's kind of anticlimactic.
 
2008-04-09 06:58:15 PM
at least they have an exit strategy..

He who holds the treasury notes calls the shots.
