I'm sure he'll be taken care of better than most pets given as Christmas presents.

3. Re: Happy Festivus Everyone! Dec 23, 2004, 08:51 Raven
 
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Frank Costanza (played by Jerry Stiller) shows the aluminum pole his family has used in past Festivus celebrations to Jerry Seinfeld (played by himself)Festivus is a nondenominational holiday from Seinfeld, a popular American television sitcom of the 1990s. It featured on episode number 166 of the show, entitled The Strike, which first aired on 18 December 1997. Many fans of Seinfeld now celebrate the fictional holiday in real life.

Festivus is celebrated each year on December 23. Its slogan is "A Festivus for the rest of us!"

The character Frank Costanza (played by Jerry Stiller) created it as an alternative holiday in response to the commercialization of Christmas. He explained its origins during the episode to the character Cosmo Kramer (played by Michael Richards), as seen in the following dialogue:

Frank Costanza: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.
Cosmo Kramer: What happened to the doll?
Frank Costanza: It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born . . . a Festivus for the rest of us!
Cosmo Kramer: That must've been some doll.
Frank Costanza: She was!
In the episode, Kramer had become interested in resurrecting the holiday after hearing the plight of his friend—Frank Costanza's son—George, who used the holiday celebration he hated in his youth as a defensive excuse to his employer, Kruger (played by Daniel Von Bargen). George had been confronted by Kruger after handing out cards for Christmas to his fellow employees stating a donation had been made to a fake charity called The Human Fund in lieu of exchanging Christmas presents. George defended himself saying that he feared persecution for his beliefs, for not celebrating Christmas. Calling his bluff, Kruger came home with George to see Festivus in action.

The Festivus idea came to the show through writer Daniel O'Keefe. His father, Dan O'Keefe, had invented a Festivus holiday in 1966.

No load time improvements:

IMPROVING GAME PERFORMANCE
Most performance problems reported to Activision Customer Support are due to computer systems not meeting the minimum system requirements or not having the latest video and sound card drivers installed.

If these are not the causes of any performance problems you are experiencing, we recommend that you try some or all of the following suggestions.
· Set your desktop to a resolution of 800x600, 32-bit True Color and play the game at that resolution.
· Shut down all background applications.
· Disable any anti-virus software you are running.

No, it was the lack of pr0n that gave it away.

Okay, so if the meteor was a hoax, what caused the bright flash of light that so many different sources caught on tape.

This is old news... Lady already got her PS2 back.


Why she wouldn't get the money back from the THIEF who signed a CONFESSION and was ARRESTED by the police is beyond me.

24. Re: Incitement to Genocide Jan 23, 2004, 18:29 Raven
 
From Dictionary.com:

gen·o·cide ( P ) Pronunciation Key (jn-sd)
n.
The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group.

Mr. Dupuy things that GTA leads people to plan the extermination of his entire ethnic group. I can honestly say that I never even thought about it until he mentioned it.

I guess that means that Mr. Dupuy is really the one inciting genocide.

"Army officials acknowledged that the 30 mm cannons used by the Apache gunners were far bigger than what was needed to kill the men, but said it is the smallest weapon the Apaches have."

I love that quote.

I honestly have no idea what the Geneva Convention says about this, but I do know that Army gunners are certainly allowed to fire on ground troops with their guns.

If they really believed that the tube was an RPG or missile, that would explain the haste they used in firing. Notice from the video that the first burst totally misses the target, falling well short of the area pictured.
