So can we turn this into the hot NBC 10 reporter thread like I tried to earlier, not to hijack but what's more beautiful than beautiful women? beautiful women who can be seen worldwide thanks to the magnificent invention of Thomas Eddyson and the light bulb. The subset is [NBC]. Go to work and make me proud.

OscarTamerz: Fark NBC and their eternally shiatty coverage of the Olympics. They should at least let someone with half a brain cover the rest of the sports except for the 3 or 4 that they deign to cover. Guess what assholes we can see basketball 9 months out of every year so let's get a little variety and I don't want to know anything about the athletes because the only interesting thing about them is that they're world class in their sport even if they do have a 3 legged cat or something else equally heart warming. Bob Costas can shut the hell up and get off of my TV you farking boring midget.


Don't watch the televised coverage. Create an account on www.nbcolympics.com (go to the big "click here and get ready" button) and you can watch streaming of ANY sport, any event. They're saved so you can watch replays too.

There has been a trend of late to define the continent of Oceania as containing Australia and the South Pacific Islands.

Continents are like planets. The definitions predate our modern knowledge and so are more conveniences than facts.

If we were to define them using the continental shelves, our maps would look *very* different (for example, a good chunk of Siberia would be in North America).

cptjeff: G-Rot: \Given my impression of my fellow Americans though, I don't suspect it is.

Yeah, cause every 'Merican is dumb 'cept yew, right asshole?

I've worked in a position where I take calls from random citizens on the issues of the day. The average American is a moron.


Do you ever consider that you are in a position that sort of filters out the wheat from the chaff? I suppose I need more information about the job you've described, but it sounds like a position in which you screened calls for a call in radio program?

Think about the type of individual who would even bother to call in, it would be an opinionated man or woman who thinks they're going to change the hosts mind by calling in. Sort of in the same vein of people who go on the Jerry Springer style of shows to address their marital woes. I suppose the point i'm making is, some of the smarter people realize the futility, and don't bother to call in.


So perhaps you were in an echo chamber of sorts, that gives the impression of abject stupidity... Or maybe we are indeed surrounded by, and in the control of, idiots.

My wife tried to make some travel arrangements by phone one time and the person insisted, no matter how my wife explained what she wanted, that they did not handle arrangements outside the United States.

My wife was trying to visit Albuquerque, New Mexico.

You're a political market researcher? Why don't you farkING DIE IN A FIRE AND ROT IN HELL.

Of COURSE you talk to morons. Everyone else hangs up or has call blocking.

It looks like it got fixed. It now says:

The world's sixth-largest nation in area and the smallest of the seven continents. Located in the Southern Hemisphere between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

Thanks for the before screen shot.
