uhh...France Surrenders?
 
2003-03-26 01:12:14 AM  
Is this the same camera/view MSNBC was using?

If so, the guys cleaning are running in and out of the pic...

So my question is, how did Multiple Miggs get his mess on the camera?

BIRD POOP
BIRD POOP

For those of us who don't know, birds cannot piss. They do not have the organs to carry out this function...but when it all comes togather it aint no easy thing to clean off after a couple hours in the baking sun. Thank engineers for flat head pellets!

It's not like he could go in the toilet cus they've got no fricken water! I say poop on little birdie. Just stay away from my car.
 
2003-03-26 01:55:12 AM  
My friend had the darndest thing happen to him for several weeks... He parked in this parking lot with all these other cars, and wasn't under any streetlamps, and yet day after day bird crap would be all over his rear view mirror! None of the other cars had been crapped on. For some reason some bird kept choosing his car out of all the others to crap on, and it was mainly on the drvier side reare view mirror. Though once I went to get in his car and it was on the passenger side. I guess birdie wanted a change of pace.

Maybe it was looking in the rear view mirror? I don't have a clue...

*fligs poo at the republican guard*

If Iraq is anything like Egypt, there are rooftop pigeons everywhere pooping on everything. They are raised for food and live in cement "cubbies" on the rooftop edges of apartment buildings.

Oh, and it smells super!
 
2003-03-26 02:13:06 AM  
Nibbles: Umm, actually, if you were watching at the time, some Iraqi became very excited about being on world TV....lets just say that those Iraqi's may have a untapped boon for the porn industry

That kind of gives a whole new meaning to "streaming video".

Massive uprising in Iraqi city of Basra. People are running around the streets setting fires. Iraqi militiamen loyal to Saddam are firing mortars on the crowds, and British troops are firing artillery at the mortar positions.

Oh yeah, and remember how Saddam purchased a bunch of US and UK uniforms? Well apparently his Republican Guard units are running around in our uniforms executing all the Iraqi regulars that surrender to them.

link?

Becareful, I just heard reports that Wendy's employees have been seen wearing KFC uniforms!
 
2003-03-26 02:45:49 AM  
Saddam's plots are nuttier than Bush's... and of course, they're working much better too.
 
2003-03-26 02:56:37 AM  
where is it? i can't seem to click on the thing
 
2003-03-26 03:09:30 AM  
Interesting. The evil Imperialist Yanks™ don't seem to have disrupted the civillians' lives totally.

There's a sound every so often, like someone pounding on a metal garbage can.

Shall we make predictions on the final fate of the BaghdadCam? I'm guessing it gets pitched off the side of that building sometime before sundown. There's some odd stuff happening right now...

03-26-03 02:20:56 AM Bbcrackmonkey

Yeah, that sounds like our ol' buddy Saddam. Here's hoping he's dead by week's end. And no, I'm not one to wish death lighlty on people. He's butchered enough; it's time for him to go away.

Crotchrocket Slim, I wouldn't exactly say that Saddam's plots are working. I mean really his only big plot so far has been to buy coalition uniforms in order to slaughter his own surrendering troops. Even if it works, he's only killing his own soldiers. No doubt he'll try to blame it on us but since we have already reported numerous times that he's been acquiring our uniforms, he's already lost that propaganda battle.

Plus our soldiers are actually right outside of Baghdad and British troops are poised to take the city of Basra tomorrow morning. There's a huge Shia uprising in Basra and only a few pro-Saddam elements left, and since we have the support of the local populace the city shouldn't be that difficult to take.

Baghdad will be another story. Saddam is hoping that we are just going to rush straight into Baghdad so his soldiers can pick off our armored columns with RPGs like when the Russians first tried to push into Grozny. He wants to turn Baghdad into another Stalingrad, a war of attrition in urban combat. It ain't gonna happen. What we're going to do is surround the city and then make temporary thrusts into his centers of power while fostering the growing revolt.

A pirate strolls into his favorite bar and the bartender says, "Whoa, dude, what happened to you?"
The pirate says, "What do you mean?"
The bartender says, "Well, for starters, you never used to have a peg leg."
"Oh, that," replies the pirate. "Well, you see, we had a sea battle and a cannon ball blew off my leg. But the ship's surgeon fixed me up with this peg leg and I'm as good as new."
"Well, what about the hook?" asks the barkeep.
"We had another sea battle and some guy lopped off my hand," the pirate explains, "but the ship's surgeon fixed me up with this hook and now I'm as good as new!"
"What about the eye patch?" asks the bartender.
"One day I was on the top mast keeping watch," says the pirate, "when an albatross flew over and pooped in my eye."
The bartender is incredulous. "You mean to tell me that bird poop will put out your eye?"
"Well," the pirate explained, "this happened shortly after I got the hook."

"That?" the Pirate says.
"Oh that's driving me nuts!"

It's pretty ironic how the Baghdad livewebcast cam is so relaxing to watch.

Just a nice steady flow of traffic.
 
2003-03-26 03:37:06 AM  
but what do the babis think?

The camera is down, just getting a test pattern now.

We should all send this fellow a nasty email, maybe it could shorten the war:

Nothing But Net, there was never a doubt in my mind that Saddam was an AOL user. The sheer evilness of his long reign can only be supplemented by the sheer crap of AOL service. If Saddam was anything else, the world would not be right.
 
2003-03-26 07:12:32 AM  
wtf for a city being bombed there is an awful lot of traffic.

I've seen two short vans a bus and like 8 cars i nthe past 30 seconds
 
2003-03-26 07:34:01 AM  
with sound and all....

last night, there was rain on it. didn't see poop.

did anyone snag it?
 
2003-03-26 07:37:55 AM  
Sandstorm atm... hard to bomb in a sandstorm I guess. Blah.
 
2003-03-26 08:42:11 AM

2003-03-26 08:52:15 AM  
this post is stupid as hell
 
2003-03-26 08:53:53 AM  
Bird poop!?!? Alert the president at once!

/who cares?
 
2003-03-26 09:09:40 AM  
Nothing like pirate jokes to start off the day...
Ayyy...More! More!
 
2003-03-26 09:15:54 AM  
Don't know what all the fuss is about. All I see is a lot of of red/brown haze, and the reflection on the wet street below of the lights of the building on accross the from the camera. I see no bird poop or any of the other various things mentioned in the messages above.

You can now return to your regularly scheduled shiat.
 
2003-03-26 09:20:49 AM  
Looks like bird shiat to me.

Smells like bird shiat to me.

Tastes like bird shiat to me.

Good thing I didn't step in it.

Mistervoice
Ditto. Nothing unusal at all. I'm still waiting for the bird to arrive.
 
2003-03-26 09:36:20 AM  
hmm.. they must have wiped it off.. I don't see anything. Cool cam though.
 
2003-03-26 10:02:39 AM  
I thought you people were technically competent.

A better source for that cam (rather than having it load within a little pop-up window) is:
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc2

You may also want to check out mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc1 , which appears to be their news feed, mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc3 which is the white house/pentagon press conferences etc. Hey, at mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc4 I saw a press conference from some astronomers yesterday, but was too busy to really pay attention. The feeds go up to 11 (at least I got an error when searching for mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc12)

Those links, btw, should launch windows media players for those using those kind of systems. (Can't help mac users).

No, but I do see a birdshiat for brains called "Mister President" trying to give a cheerful speech to a bunch of troops who are about to go overseas and get seriously farked.
 
2003-03-26 10:57:22 AM  
Terrorist bird.

Damn farking muslims, they even train birds to hate the US of A.
 
2003-03-26 10:59:45 AM  
mms://lv-msnbc.msnbc.com/msnbc4 has a press conference about the findings from the shuttle...I know, last months story.
