yeah - definitely a NY rather than NE thing. People think of Boston as  "quaint" here.

Have any of you seen Tron?

I love movies made in the 80's about robots, computers, and the future. There is a great Tom Sellick flick in which he is a detective in the LAPD Robot Division.

"Runaway".  Those spider robots still give me nightmares. 

The main bad guy had really scary eyes, too



Found your pic I think

Is that the movie the kids have to beat the computer at chess to stop nuclear holocaust?

I'm pretty liberal leaning myself, but the 'rents are both uberconservative types - so I've learned not to talk politics and never assume agreement on any sensitive issues.

Never played the NES games (with the exception of emulators hehe), but so far I'd venture to say that the current hierarchy goes something like:

You missed out - the original had a GOLD cartridge!

As for the original topic, I applied to NYU, but only as a backup in case I didn't get into Chicago or Columbia (or maybe even Virginia).  I never liked the Village area, I didn't like the no-campus thing, the school seemed way to the left due to stories about insulting Scalia, high public interest rate, and just my impressions from visiting.  Also I don't care about tax or international law.   

The vast majority of NYC is left.  We are so left that it is almost always assumed in conversation that you dislike Bush.  I guess nowadays that is the case in most of America, but we've been hating on Bush since 2000.  Perhaps Columbia attracts more out of towners, but if you want to avoid the left, avoiding NYC is somewhat of a requirement.  I'm a centrist Dem and I feel like a conservative comparatively.

Have any of you seen those bizarre self-storage ads that rip on bush / cheney? I've seen billboards and posters on the train with them. I forget what they say, but the jokes are bad to begin with (not that i have a problem with ripping on them, they just are poorly constructed jokes). It also seems like they automatically cut themselves off from the conservative self-storage shopper.

I think this crowd may enjoy this. My 4th grade gym teacher loved zelda in bombardment and combined the two into a yearlong bombardment match that when you won, you advanced a level and got new schwag.

You got a shield - upright mat for blocking
raft - one person got carried to the back of enemy lines and fired balls from behind
bombs - basket balls that you could roll to get people out
boomerang - frisbies

That's about all I remember - but it was pretty clever and a good time
