Trouble at Kennedy Airport this AM

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by mcdar, Aug 4, 2004.

    At New York Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be
    a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in
    possession of a ruler, a protractor, a setsquare, a slide rule and a
    calculator.

    Attorney general John Ashcroft believes the man is a member of the
    notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged with carrying weapons of
    math instruction.

    "Al-gebra is a very fearsome cult, indeed", Ashcroft said. "They desire
    average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on a
    tangent in a search of absolute value. They consist of quite shadowy
    figures, with names like 'x' and 'y', and, although they are frequently
    referred to as 'unknowns', we know they really belong to a common
    denominator and are part of the axis of medieval with coordinates in
    every country."

    As the great Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, ! "There are 3
    sides to every triangle."

    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had
    wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given
    us more fingers and toes. :D

    McDar, next they will be targeting "Webmaster tool creators" for webmaster tools of mass destruction.

    I am sure someone is watching you, Compar and Foxy right now :D

    Yeah, I know the feeling, it is about time we started looking at Compar and focus more attention on what he is up to :D

    That belongs in the Bush versus Kerry thread. It is both funny and sad at the same time.

    Japanese detained for writing 'suicide bomb' during U.S. plane trip

    Tuesday, August 3, 2004 at 08:54 JST
    CHICAGO — A Japanese man, brushing up on his English, caused a bomb scare at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport late Sunday, after scrawling the words "suicide bomb" in his notebook.

    The 60-year-old passenger had reportedly made a note of the phrase so he could look it up later, but a fellow traveler became suspicious and reported the hapless businessman to the flight staff.

    Sorry Rick, Compar has me on probation here at DP, he is acting as a moderator without being a moderator.

    Nothing I can do to stop this, it is all politics, it is called HARDBALL.

    Just kidding, you guys know how well Compar and I get along, don't you? :D

    Take my word for it Rick, there is only one Compar, never compare any with Compar :D

    This is not possible, Bob is a very unique jewel within the community, we are just lucky he puts up with US :D

    Naw,

    If Anthonys screen name was a bit more ambiguous and he had not already claimed to be 45 years old, you would think it was a star struck teen age girl chasing Bob around.

    :D

    That would be interesting :D But in that case I wouldn't suck up to myself quite as blatantly.

    What Anthony is talking about is that I gave him hell for haunting my every post a few days ago. And I have to admit that he has been a little better since.

    I think he has something to offer to this forum. The problem is I just haven't figured out what the hell it is yet. :p

    Don't worry Mcdar, he has that problem already, he is even inviting young girls into his community at Orkut.

    When you are famous you get all of the perks that come along with it, now you know why Bob has hanger ons like me, we just want a bit of the glory so we force our way into his threads for attention. :D :D :D

    I'm insulted beyond repair :mad: It was size 40 not 42 :D

    As a matter of fact I'm on a bit of a reducing regime and I may have to trade my 40" thong for a 38" shortly. Now if I could just get the damn thing out of my ass. :eek:

    Well McDar, lets put it this way, if Bob had a spare room and gave me a job I would take it since my regular business is in the dumps because of this recession. So if you call that asskissing, then let the asskissing begin :D
