Speaking of women who should have two vaginas, Shakira is on SNL right I must bid you all adieu for the evening.

With my luck, I'd cut one off, and the next day I'd meet the only hot chick in the world with two vaginas.

I found this one a few weeks ago when I was searching for a Japanese video game commercial I was in in 1988 (They actually came out to film it in sunny CA).  I was amazed I found it.  And no...I'm not the fat guy at the end.

This time around, Wonder Woman needs to be a bit more exotic.  I'd go with Catherine Bell or Lexa Doig (from Andromeda). 

I thought I heard awhile ago that there is a Wonder Woman script floating around Hollywood & Sandra Bullock is the front-runner.

WTF? Of all people. They would be better off with Demi Moore

hey fuckwad, there were long range missles being launched into Israel from right around that building.  Israel unfortunately missed and hit a building.  But the rockets are being fired from a civilian area.  Israel's job is to take them out, accidents happen.  In Tyre they managed a direct score on the rocket launchers, here they didn't.  Too f-ing bad.

This is dead on.  As a former (and well-educated) Marine, it disappoints me that such a high percentage of fellow-Americans delude themselves into believing that, with enough peaceful diplomacy, all cultures can eventually co-exist with all other cultures.  This is a fallacy which ignores the nature of our enemies, and, in a broader sense, our nature as human beings.  The enemy and its allies have committed to their position, which is NOT one of peaceful diplomacy.  It would be advisable for us to do the same while our strategic military capability can still overwhelm theirs.  This enemy is to be admired in one sense:  In life, they fear nothing but the hand of God.   To protect the future of our nation and our way of life, we must be prepared to deliver the hand of God to the enemy once diplomacy proves futile.  Perhaps that time draws near.  Welcome to the human race folks.

Are you really sure you want to do this law school thing bro?  Sounds like the first time the prof uses the Socratic method on you, you might go all UFC on his *ss.  Actually, come to think of it, you and I might get along.  I say go for it.  Take whatever school you can get into, and check to make sure the bar in your state would admit you at the end of it all.  Then kick serious *ss....academically and professionally speaking that is.  If you're good at what you do in practice, your professional reputation will eventually overcome everything in your past.

dudes -- What about the Burger King commercial with the guy in the chicken suit going off a jump on a motocross bike?  Am I the only one who thinks the words to the jingle sound like "Big...f*cking chicken"? 

It's making me crazy trying to figure out what else that could be.

I think the Israelis are showing a good deal more restraint than they're obligated to.

We need to stop pretending that all cultures are capable of getting along with all other cultures.  They can't now and they probably never will.  The only thing that truly separates us from the animals is that we don't just kill over resources and territory; we kill over ideologies too.  That's just human nature.  I wish it weren’t true.  So for now, you just have to pick your team and make sure it survives and flourishes over all others who would challenge its survival.  I'm not asserting that we're more righteous than anyone else.  From my perspective, it's not a matter of good versus evil or right versus wrong.  It's just my team/culture versus anyone who would take such offense to my team/culture that they would be willing to kill me or my comrades.  The guy on the other side has every right to feel the same -- I'm no hypocrite.

For example, fundamentalist Islamic culture will always feel displaced by the ever-broadening influence of the more liberal western culture.  There really isn't much we can do about this.  This western cultural "impingement" occurs even in a passive sense, in places we haven't "offended their land" by putting “boots on the ground.”  In many cases it happens through exposure of Islamic youth to western music, movies, TV, Internet, and other widely available media.  There is clearly a significant moral divide between fundamentalist Islam and the more liberal western ideologies seeping into their territories.  Any culture that is feeling displaced will naturally become defensive, and will react in some way to protect itself.  Rather than appealing to the world in a more diplomatic sense, fundamentalist Islam has determined that their best reaction strategy is to become rabid and violent toward us and our allies.  Fair enough.  Now we have to react accordingly to protect ourselves from their reaction.

Do you agree with my analysis?  Why or why not?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: USF v. Southwestern

I've got one more semester to go at SW, and frankly, I've enjoyed the hell out of my experience at this school.  If whatever law school you attend ends up preventing you from being successful, then you suck, not the school.  We all start out with the grandest of dreams; but when you don't exactly get what you wished for at square one, you just need to lift your head and attack the opportunities in front of you.  In the long run, that kind of attitude will overcome any of the deficiencies you percieve regarding your current options.  You'll end up looking back at some point and realizing that there was no deficiency in the first place -- it was all in your head.

Just as an example of why I'm so pleased with SW, I'm currently taking Trial Advocacy with The Honorable Charles W. McCoy Jr..  This man is presently the supervising judge over more than 250 civil courts in Los Angeles.  He was an attorney/partner in a major LA firm for seventeen years, before becoming a judge in 1992.  He's written books, etc.  I could go on about his qualifications.  In addition, our classroom is one of, if not the most, state-of-the-art mock courtrooms in the U.S.  I couldn't imagine wanting to be in any other school learning this skill from any other professor.
