Step by step directions:
1.) Sit down and write down the sentence. Would you like to go with me to see _______ on Friday night at ___(whatever time movie starts? By asking the girl to see a specific movie on a specific night, you give her the chance to say "no" to the movie or the night. That way, if she says 'no', she can do so to the movie or the night.
2.) Find a girl who you would like to go see a movie with.
3.) Introduce yourself (if she doesn't already know you) and say your line, including the name of the movie and the time.

April 22 -- Lawyers puree Big Apple. Figures from the City of New York's fiscal year 2000 show that the city paid a record $459 million in judgments and settlements, a 10.5 percent increase over the previous fiscal year. $406 million of that figure was laid out on personal injury claims, up 11.5 percent from fiscal 1999. (Elaine Song, "Costs Climb for the City", New York Law Journal, Mar. 21; "New York Sees Higher Verdicts in 2001", New York Law Journal, Mar. 21; "Tort City, U.S.A."

Witnessing hi-tech firms dive into China is like watching the Gadarene swine. Already fat and greedy beyond belief, the Western technology titans are being herded towards the trough. And with their snouts deep in the feedbag, they haven't quite noticed the bacon being trimmed off their ass. It isn't so much a case of technology transfer as digital strip-mining. Advanced research and technical notes are being handed over to the Chinese without question. It couldn't be going better for the Communists. While bootstrapping their economy with the fruits of Western labor and ingenuity, they gain the tools to prune democracy on the vine.Link Discuss (Thanks, Laird!)

However, these propagandists aren't just targeting the young. Take for example Apple Computers, makers of the popular Macintosh line of computers. The real operating system hiding under the newest version of the Macintosh operating system (MacOS X) is called... Darwin! That's right, new Macs are based on Darwinism! While they currently don't advertise this fact to consumers, it is well known among the computer elite, who are mostly Atheists and Pagans. Furthermore, the Darwin OS is released under an "Open Source" license, which is just another name for Communism. They try to hide all of this under a facade of shiny, "lickable" buttons, but the truth has finally come out: Apple Computers promote Godless Darwinism and Communism.Link Discuss (Thanks, Dennis!)
So, I went to my hotel room here. Very nice, perfectly acceptable. It has a bedside digital clock that was never reset for daylight savings time. There's even digital media on the hotel TV. Did anyone else notice Channel 19? It's supposed to be showing a promotional DVD for San Francisco tourist sites. But it's a scratched DVD. So there has been a scratched record, repeating the same 5 to 7 seconds of video, around the clock, in this hotel, all week. DVDs really suck. When they malfunction, the visual damage on the screen is just awe- inspiring. Why several hundred computer experts at CFP never complained to hotel management about this stuck DVD, that is beyond me. I mean, it is a commercial DVD, so maybe they were afraid of being prosecuted under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. But come on! How long has this thing been malfing? Maybe it's been screwed-up ALL YEAR!Link Discuss
First up, here's a blog documenting NetSol horror stories. NetSol is our least favorite registrar, a division of the "trust" company Verisign, and this singular site documents abuse after abuse, demonstrating the depth of NetSol's incompetence, villainy and dishonesty.
On domain ________.com no notification of renewal was received until June 2001, however expiration was 5/12/01. When transfer to Tucows was attempted, Network Solutions refused to allow transfer. Informed by [winning registrar customer service] that there was nothing they could do to assist. Forced to pay NetworkSolutions their bloated fee for another year so as not to lose the domain, since they had ALSO hoarded the domain past its expiration.Link Discuss (Thanks, Paul!)
Maj. Gen. Jean-Claude Duperval is accused of having participated in the Raboteau massacre, in Gonaives, 150 kilometers (93 miles) north of Port-au-Prince, on April 22, 1994, under the military regime of coup-leader Raoul Cedras.Link Discuss
It takes about 15,000 to 30,000 square feet of land to feed one person the average U.S. diet," he says. "I've figured out how to get it down to 4,000 square feet. How? I focus on growing soil, not crops.Link Discuss (Thanks, Allan!)
The new Answers is much, much neater. Google is hosting a marketplace for answers. Visitors post questions and offer up a sum between $4 and $50. Any registered user can proffer their opinions on the question (which the poser gets to look at for free), and the researcher distills the wisdom and provides a definitive answer.
The next step, I hope, is cutting in kibbitzers for a share of the bounty if their input is used in the answer. It's amazing how systems that rely on blessed "experts" are hard to scale, while systems that just provide a place for people to do their thing and figure out a way to extract some cash (i.e., eBay) scale fantastically well and make giant oodles of money.
So, I have the fucking bitch job of fuck. I forgot to tell that. And I can't get any other job, because I am on the Enemies List. And also, that job makes my head bees get angry almost every day. And. BORING. All the time. As boring as a stupid guy who is a different kind of stupid from what you are.Link Discuss (via Robot Wisdom)
And today, I am wearing these different shoes that I don't wear very much, but they cost me $5, so I figured I'd better wear them sometimes, but then they are not my regular shoes, so I am all feeling like a movie star wearing them, like Ernest Borgnine or something in my dumb fucking shoes, and then I have to wear the dumbass holder thing with my dumbass picture on it, in case I ever forget for a minute that I am just a big dumb bag of meat, I can look and find out all about it all over again.
It is a legal requirement that pre-installed operating systems remain with a machine for the life of the machine. If a company or individual donates a machine to your school, it must be donated with the operating system that was installed on the PC.This is, of course, so much bullshit. Ridiculous statements like this reflect the dilution of First Sale in the modern world. I bought that PC. It's up to me what I do with it. I can erase the hard-drive, I can use the CDs that the OS shipped on for skeet-shooting, you name it. When you abridge first-sale, you get howlers like this:
Microsoft recommends that educational institutions only accept computer donations that are accompanied by proper operating system documentation. If the donor cannot provide this documentation, it is recommended that you decline the donated PC(s)."I'm sorry, sir, we can't accept that computer for your daughter's kindergarten class; you lost the warranty card."
