Well, let's hope she didn't land on that pretty face of hers.
2002-01-31 10:12:02 AM  
"You're going to have to excuse me for a minute," she said, before falling over.-that is classic.
2002-01-31 10:12:05 AM  
they ought to give her a honorary governorship of the north pole. stupid coont.
2002-01-31 10:12:18 AM  
I had to go to Strong Hospital...hehehe...I ate some color changing cheetos and my stomach farked itself....hehehe....

If past experience proves correctly, she sat in the waiting room for 4 hours before she saw anyone.
2002-01-31 10:12:24 AM  
How can you tell if she landed face up or ass up?
2002-01-31 10:13:09 AM  
I wouldn't touch her with Harmonia's dick.
2002-01-31 10:13:28 AM  
there's video on the
cnn site
2002-01-31 10:14:27 AM  
Imagine performing mouth-to-mouth on her. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
2002-01-31 10:16:44 AM  
Can she party or what?
2002-01-31 10:19:06 AM  
9/10, that was uncalled for!
2002-01-31 10:19:24 AM  
Was she eating pretzels?
2002-01-31 10:20:08 AM

Her face isn't as hairy.
2002-01-31 10:21:32 AM  
yay my home city! I feel so proud?
2002-01-31 10:21:52 AM  
MAN DOWN !! MAN DOWN !!! ... oh.... sorry
2002-01-31 10:22:35 AM  
For the sake of this woman's health, she should consider stepping down from public life. Her parkinson's has been getting worse recently, and a job such as the Governor requires much energy. I'm afraid she may be pushing herself too hard.
2002-01-31 10:22:40 AM  
Reno has to be a man. Does anyone know where I could find a younger picture of her. Has she ever remotely resembled a female?
2002-01-31 10:23:54 AM  
"Hospital officials called the collapse a simple fainting spell."

I first read that as "simple farting spell".
2002-01-31 10:24:46 AM  
I think the Gov. race in Florida is going to be pretty darn interesting. Reno has parkinsons-the Republicans don't dare touch that one due to the large retiree vote and Bush had a xanax kid- Dems wont touch that one due to the Elian mess and Reno being branded as an insensitive enemy of children and their issues. This is gonna be fun.
2002-01-31 10:25:47 AM that a commons shirt you have on in your profile? Toooo wierd. and RIT could kick U of R's @ss anyday...right?..hehe...They get Janet Reno, but we had Lewis Black.
2002-01-31 10:27:25 AM  
The correct expression, unfortunately in this case, is "tits up."
2002-01-31 10:27:31 AM  
I broke my hand, went to Strong and waited 10 HOURS before they told me to come back the next day and they'd set it then...they suck
2002-01-31 10:27:39 AM  
Maybe she was nackered from giving Donna Shalala an up close and personal gynecological exam.

In reality, this is her attempt to drop out of the Florida Gubernatorial Race without looking like another total loser for the failed Clinton administration (*cough*)Al Gore(*cough*).
2002-01-31 10:28:27 AM  
What's up with the headline? Democrats trying to piece together a Republican scandal out of Reno fainting? How odd...
2002-01-31 10:29:04 AM  
And she did it without the aid of a pretzel. Amazing "woman."
2002-01-31 10:29:06 AM  
yes its an RIT common's shirt...I'm glad to say that I no longer work for the food service industry at my commons... and RIT could beat UofR's ass any day... your frats get suspended for mutilating cats...we get people arrsted by the FBI for having one of the world's largest software pirating rings.. we're that much cooler than you.

...and we could beat you at hockey any day =P
2002-01-31 10:29:07 AM  
I've never collapsed like that, and I'm not in politics. There's a lesson there, kids. The Giant Robo-Jesus is smiting the unbelievers!
2002-01-31 10:30:31 AM  
Does this mean she won't be won't be kickin' ass "Reno-style" any more?
2002-01-31 10:31:01 AM  
Do they still have Crazy Oscars' Hot Burger? MMmmm, those were the days!
2002-01-31 10:31:15 AM  
HEHEHEHE...I'm from RIT....(i love lewis black)...

But i do agree. My buddy had the #1 traffic box on the network, but left school one week before the Raid (he's the ultimate perl god..hehe...wish i had his 1337 skills).

I worked at the crossroads last year. Food service can blow me.
2002-01-31 10:31:31 AM  
I just watched the video clip and at one point all you see of her is her lifeless feet on one side of the podium it reminded me of the wicked witches feet in The Wizard of Oz movie. I was waiting for some midgets to come out dancing and singing.
2002-01-31 10:32:01 AM  
....have I met you before D43pan?
2002-01-31 10:32:27 AM  
El Cerdo Loco: how long ago did you go here?
2002-01-31 10:32:31 AM  
"Reno, the nation's first female attorney general"

I think that's debatable.
2002-01-31 10:33:29 AM  
I wish she would have died. Knowing the idiots in this state, she is going to be our next governor. Help us all.
2002-01-31 10:33:49 AM  
I don't believe so....i've never met you, but have no idea if you've met me
2002-01-31 10:34:37 AM  
Just curious, but how many of you "men" can grow beards?
2002-01-31 10:34:50 AM  
I know a lot of CS majors on campus. Do you go to the RIT anime club on thursdays?
2002-01-31 10:35:11 AM  
'94 maybe...actually I cut my hand pretty bad two years ago, mistakenly went there again and waited about 5 hours while I bled to death. Love that place.
2002-01-31 10:35:55 AM  
I saw her hit the deck last night on TV, she hit the floor like a sack of potatoes.
2002-01-31 10:37:06 AM  
Did anyone notice the story in the video list about how ground zero rescue workers are reserving their right to sue because of respatory illness? What a crock!! Who are they gonna sue?
2002-01-31 10:37:35 AM  
Twas no pretzel that fell the mighty Reno.
My eyes say she's more of a man than W.
The dinner patrons ate cabbage yet had no Beano,
and suddently the room smelt like elephant poo.
2002-01-31 10:38:33 AM  
Alterian: Never been to the anime club... I lived in japan when i was a little kid and had my share then...(my profile now with Uber-pic)

El Cerdo Loco: What kinda cool stuff did the Institute have when you were here? I'm organizing a Dorm Wars right now and trying to influence RHA to stop sucking as much. hehehe...
2002-01-31 10:39:55 AM  
you look vaguely familiar..I've probably seen you walking around.. How come you're not in class right now? ^_^
2002-01-31 10:39:56 AM  
I agree with Toupsie. I think she's giving herself an opportunity to bail now and save herself a serious ass kicking.
2002-01-31 10:40:37 AM  
I have the super schedule. Don't start till noon.
2002-01-31 10:41:42 AM

2002-01-31 10:41:48 AM  
ahh... I'm at work right now... I'm a labbie in one of the engineering labs... so I'm getting paid to sit here and talk on the net.
2002-01-31 10:42:58 AM  
Damn, I never lived in the dorms (hehe) but I had a bunch of friends in Sol.
They had battle of the bands...that's all I got.
Transmission 56, The Beat Offs...The only fun thing I ever did was a show on ITR from 3am to 6am. We played whatever the hell we wanted.

I'm old, sorry

(RIT threadjack!)
2002-01-31 10:43:41 AM  
I wonder how many RIT people read fark... I got a few of my friends on it already.
2002-01-31 10:46:29 AM  
I'm sure quite a few do read it. I've often wondered what the labbies do all day, damn. What a job

plus in the Engineering building, with all the Pizza at lunch time and such.
