much like excite@home's bank account

the link to the right about the tourist being jailed for six years for receiving oral sex is much better.

Oral Sex is an ABOMINATION and should be STAMPED OUT in our society. The only punishment viable for these people is to be HANGED BY THE NECK UNTIL THEY BE DEAD, DEAD, DEAD.

Someone was messing with future people's minds
2001-10-30 12:37:40 AM  
I suppose the surprise was... there is no surprise.
2001-10-30 12:40:45 AM  
Does this mean there is no past?
2001-10-30 12:46:20 AM  
...and does that mean that the time machine that I am building in my dorm room will in fact not work?

What a waste of time.
2001-10-30 01:05:12 AM  
No no no, this box was put here when the universe was nothing but "nothingness". Thats really old nothing in there, they just threw it away.
2001-10-30 01:24:36 AM  
it appears that 20 years ago we were all nihilists.

Define irony, commit an act of 'sodomy' in society, then you get to experience it free for the next few years in prison.

; p

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to skip breakfast...

Too bad the Geraldo Rivera wasn't on hand to kill 90 minutes of air time.
2001-10-30 02:05:36 AM  
Irish "time capsule" discovered... Later identified as empty whisky bottle.
2001-10-30 02:29:30 AM  
Never let environmental concerns get in the way of erecting your spike where someone's box is.
2001-10-30 03:41:09 AM  
Reminds me of Al Capone's safe...
2001-10-30 03:42:52 AM  
Someone Call Geraldo Quick!!!!

Who is Nelson? (Who cares.)

I vote for the oral sex.
2001-10-30 03:44:27 AM  
Who's Geraldo?
2001-10-30 03:47:01 AM  
Geraldo Rivera. Opened Al Capones vault. And it contained treasured this very day.
2001-10-30 03:50:02 AM  
Heratio Nelson. Kicked ass as admiral of the British fleet. Beat the Armada, even though he didn't survive it.

Who cares? Nobody, I guess. Same with Napoleon, Julius Caesar or George Washington I guess.
2001-10-30 03:51:54 AM  
My Guinness is empty, just like the box. I am so sad, I am just going to bed. Turn off the light when you leave, OK? Thanks.

enemyFrank - Get yourself an imagination and come up with something a little more creative than an irish/alcohol related comment..i see youre american - does that mean youre fat, loud, stupid and obnoxious?..oh silly me thats just a stereotype.

and fyi (as i have discussed with dido i believe) scottish is whisky and irish is whiskEy
2001-10-30 04:12:27 AM  
Cormee: I think you're right on the whiskey/whisky thing, but I keep mixing them up myself (not the whiskey itself, mind you)
2001-10-30 04:59:09 AM  
Dublin rocks. As does Guiness. I consequently have no time for capsules.
2001-10-30 05:52:49 AM  
..some little pricks popped the locks on my vespa over the weekend *grumble*... a pox upon them
2001-10-30 05:59:43 AM

2001-10-30 06:08:13 AM  
So... why did the Arabs get the oil and the Irish the potatoes?
2001-10-30 06:15:59 AM

2001-10-30 06:22:00 AM

And now, it's time for "Completely Inaccurate Stereotypes"!

- All Irish are drunks.
- All Americans are assholes.
- All Germans are racist warmongers.
- All British are snobs.
- All Mexicans are lazy.
- All Italian women are hot.
- All French are cowards.

And let's not forget the youngest of the IS's...
- All Muslims are responsible!

Thank you. And next week, I'll be listing the correct 'uns.
2001-10-30 06:35:17 AM  
Don't bother, I'll do it:

All people are stupid.
2001-10-30 07:03:54 AM  
They had the first pick...
2001-10-30 07:28:58 AM  
Hey, that one about us Americans is true though! I am proud to be an asshole!
2001-10-30 08:34:32 AM  
I have a couple of empty cardboard boxes in my garage. Perhaps the museum would like those also....

Weren't even placed in the damn thing. Corrupt bastards.

In the words of the immortal film, "UHF": "NOTHING! ABSORUTERY NOTHING! STUPID! YOU'RE SO STUPID!"
2001-10-30 12:27:25 PM  
I think the guy who planted this "time capsule" is an ancestor of the guy on eBay who sold "a box of nothing" for something like $28. The buyer biatched to eBay that he received an empty box.
2001-10-30 12:57:41 PM  
Someone stole me Lucky Charms!
2001-10-30 01:37:38 PM  
I see they filled it with all the great things that came out of the eighties, as well as everything Hillarie Clinton has accomplished both before and during her term as Senator of NY.

"The container was found as work began on the belated erection of a 394-foot stainless steel spike intended to mark the new millennium but delayed after concerns about its environmental impact"

They're just now getting around celebrating the millennium? Wonder what they were doing in the interim...
2001-10-30 04:27:26 PM  
They must have been assessing the impact of other things that had been erected.

So that's where Schrodinger's Cat was hiding. Or not hiding.

2001-10-30 05:33:03 PM  
No, no, A-Tuft, they put gold in there all right, but it was leprechaun gold and disappeared the night after! Why didn't those darn Irish read Harry Potter?
