MANHOLE COVER EXPLOSIONS???? Holy cow, it must be all of those embedded chips in those newfangled automatic manhole covers going ka- plueey!

Someone get her help.

-- Uncle Deedah (, October 06, 2000.

She doesnt need help, she needs a tinfoil (um the hard kind) umbrella to protect her from the flying manhole covers

-- consumer (, October 06, 2000.

I think we should all chip in like a quarter a person and hire someone to re-write her resume so she can get an actual, paying JOB.

Then she can pay for her own therapy.

My goodness, that's nothing compared to some of the latest stories over at GICC...a sample:

AOL suffers instant messaging outage (Martin Thompson,, 2000-10-06)

What a disaster!

A more substantial glitch list is this one from Paula's post.

Well good for her! You go girl! You know Rollerderby has gotten a bad rap over the years. Paula is singlehandedly trying her best to revive it.

Madame, I salute you!

-- Doc Paulie (, October 06, 2000.

No offense, Buddy. I'm sure gnats are still gnawing at elephants' backs, but they're not exactly news items. As far as I'm concerned, Paula is just another gnat gnawing at an elephant's back. Parasites will always be with us. They're like bacteria in that respect.

Anita, I take offense at your remark. Not all, are ordained to be subject matter experts. Some try to impersonate themselves as such. These are the same folks, who scratch their crotch, and say "Damn, the reason your internet response is so slow is because there are too many users". Horse Crap. Then why is the internet so much faster at home? I suggest they improve their expertise, or get a job at McDonalds, some will not settle for less. I was born at night, but it wasn't, last night.

Meanwhile in Reality-Land, The nuclear plants at the company I work at are making record online runs, and the industry is again setting new records for plant availability.

Thanks for the Paula update Buddy. As I've stated before, the U.S.S. Paula Gordon, she is a mightby battleship (axe?) and cannot be stopped!
