Working as a barista, I had one customer who would regularly order his lattes at 180 degrees. I always gave the look of "Ok, man, but you're fuckin' crazy." Milk does not like being steamed to that point. It starts rumbling like it's somehow going to explode. I felt nervous just making the damn things, but every time he'd take a big swig of it right as I gave it to him. I think he just had something to prove.

New York alone, even to someone used to big cities like London, is an extraordinary place to visit, and the West Coast has some absolutely spectacular scenery and great cities.

Seconded. I'm from California, which is (mostly) awesome. Oregon and Washington State are mighty nice as well. I'll forgo my usual vitriol and simply say that I cannot recommend Los Angeles at all. Recently visited New York City for Pete Seeger's 90th birthday concert, expecting to hate the place. My wife and I were astounded at how much we liked it. We weren't there for very long, but we both left thinking, "this is how cities should be run."

actually the mexican goverment doesn't have that kind of firepower

That's a crock of shit. I haven't seen that much of Mexico, but I did see cops -not military, POLICE OFFICERS- making their rounds carrying assault rifles. I'm not that much of a gun guy, so I can't say they were M16s for sure, but they were military-grade weapons. That made me nervous. Of course, I went to Jamaica shortly afterwards, and the police there carried submachine guns. That made me much more nervous. The Mexican cops were prepared to blow the shit out of the thing they were aiming at. The Jamaican cops were ready to fire wildly into a panicked mob.

Also, Clear Lake is pretty shitty. They would be hard pressed to fuck it up any worse than it is. Seriously, the only time that lake is ok to swim in is in the middle of the night (so you can't see the water) when you're drunk off your ass (to make your body a hostile environment to all the things that are going to try to grow inside you). And the locals, man, don't get me started.

I have a friend who has been working on "The Bear and the Bow," Pixar's next film, for a couple years now. She couldn't tell me what she was doing until about the time Up was trailered. So yeah, it's a long production cycle. She does concept art and such, so it maybe pushes through the CGI phase pretty quick, but they develop these things over several years.

Feel free to vote for the non-Black candidates and against the Black candidates if you are not African-American. You need not defend your actions in any way. Voting on the basis of skin is quite acceptable by the standards of today's moral values.

Guess I'll vote for the nigger next time, too. I dunno, man. I haven't known many black people in my life, nor wetbacks, camel-jockeys or whatever. Some folks in my situation distrust such people. Fear of the unkown, I guess. Me, I think I understand my fellow white man pretty well, and I know what kind of treacherous assholery we can get up to. Maybe those weird darkies are different by nature. I'll take the unknown evil over the known.
