  Thu. 3/22/12 7:00pm Dan B From Upstate:

The Sun Hasn't Set Yet People!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:00pm somebody:

the wurst show
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:04pm Brett:

I love Bach
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:06pm Joey:

Hello people!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:08pm Dan B From Upstate:

German reparations = the dirtiest, freakiest porn in the civilized world.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:09pm Abbrs:

"SS" on a ship = "Steam Ship"
Nazi SS = Schutzstaffel ~ "Protection Squadron"
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:10pm What Would Gary da Squirrel Say?:

Yer stupid. Stoopidddd!!!!

Get it? GETTTTTTT ITTTTTTTT????
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:10pm Caryn:

In American ships, USS is "United States Ship", SS is "Steam Ship".
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:11pm vanya:

they make them work in siberia. let`s make this board a place of safe reference! )
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:12pm busch:

the u.s. government, including specificallythe bush family were major funders of hitler's political party.
a bit like the funding of saddam hussein etc.. -there is a pattern
its about building up a tyrant then taking him out and taking over the void
u.s. foreign policy
just a thought
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:12pm Caryn:

They did tend to have gulags and other types of internment and prison camps in Siberia, so it was not just the distances. Work camps, essentially. Slave labour in harsh conditions.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:12pm Snortley:

There were prison camps in Siberia where most went, though some, especially intellectuals, were simply exiled to live in remote towns there.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:13pm Dan B From Upstate:

Because you don't see tweens running around with Super 8 cameras these days.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:13pm Incredibly Late Movie Reviews:

Oooh! What's your review of "Kickass"?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:14pm caver_mike:

Read "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. It is short, extremely well-written, and about being sent to Siberia.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:15pm Snortley:

In the gulags, the Soviets carefully fed the prisoners just enough that they would slowly starve to death as they worked. Stalin said "There will be fewer, but better Russians."
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:15pm Caryn:

It was set in the 70s, so it could be called "Super 8". If it was set in the present, it would have been called "Digital Camera". Not as evocative. I would say that "Attack the Block" is the superior version of the "kids witnessing aliens" trope in 2011.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:16pm Dan B From Upstate:

Caryn nailed it better than I did.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:16pm Abbrs:

Any valid combo could work. 24/7, or 24/365, 60/24, 3600/24, etc.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:16pm glenn:

mila kunis would improve this episode, that's for sure.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:17pm Caryn:

Aw bless, Dan.
And glenn has been possessed by the spirit of cheri.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:17pm Dan B From Upstate:

I've started keeping a running total of when I lose the will to live, inspired of course by 7SD. I'm currently at 3-51 (lost-kept)
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:20pm Caryn:

Good thing the numbers are that way around, Dan! And that on those 3 occasions, you've managed to regain the will to live later.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:20pm Abbrs:

6 minutes, keeping the will to live. 3 minutes, losing the will to live.
51 minutes, KEEP LOSING the will to live...
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:21pm Dan B From Upstate:

It's why I started keeping track. I don't lose the will to live anywhere near the amount I thought I did.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:21pm Abbrs:

Yes Caryn, WFMU programs cause you to lose the will to live, but not very strongly.
Front page motto: "You live to lose the will to live another day!"
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:21pm What Would Gary da Squirrel Say?:

How about the will to entertain? Huh? How about that?

Get it? GETTTT ITTTTT????? You're boring!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:22pm Dan B From Upstate:

I freaking love that squirrel.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:23pm See Through Your Masque:

@Gary: I think you tease because you really like Dave and Sandy.
Just like you secretly look up to AP Mike!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:24pm What Would Gary da Squirrel Say?:

busted.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:24pm vanya:

stazi was in ddr, soviet germany, right?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:24pm Abbrs:

Stasi = Staatssicherheitspolizei = "secret state police"

East German, 1949-1990.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:25pm Guy Who Hate The Show But Still Listens:

This show is a bunch of Bolshevik.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:25pm What Would Gary da Squirrel Say?:

Mike gets to be in cool videos. And me? Hand sweat all over my insides.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:26pm Caryn:

Stasi comes from Staatssicherheit (State Security), and was the name used for the East German Ministry for State Security (Ministerium für Staatssicherheit).
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:26pm Abbrs:

Gestapo, on the other hand was a Nazi police.
Geheime Staatspolizei, THAT = "secret state police"
Stasi = "state security police". Same thing, bit of surveillance, bit of arresting, bit of anal probing...
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:28pm Abbrs:

Btw, IS there an actual topic tonight???
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:28pm What Would Gary da Squirrel Say?:

Is there ever?

Get it? GETTT ITTTT?????
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:28pm Dan B From Upstate:

I'd say perception... and perspective... Possibly Peanut Butter.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:29pm Caryn:

Based on the title, the topic seems to be the excessive use of exclamation points.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:30pm Penal:

What if this show was ever any good for one minute?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:30pm Dan B From Upstate:

Thats one of those Night People running jokes.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:30pm Sean:

Caryn, maybe you don't perceive a topic?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:31pm miss cheri:

caryn--i hope to see you again soon,,,bye!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:32pm Caryn:

Sean, the reality created by my perception is that Dave and Sandy are mostly babbling to avoid dead air.

Bye, cheri!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:32pm sandy:

all actions do have intrinsic value but that value can never be determined and is constantly changing
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:34pm Caryn:

The alternative ending of "Butterfly Effect" is good.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:34pm Dan B From Upstate:

He's probably lying... most professionals don't talk about how much they make.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:35pm See Through Your Masque:

"Babysit myself". Yeah, wanking off in your room!!!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:36pm Dan B From Upstate:

Marble Joey is the best frequent caller of the revived night people.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:36pm See Through Your Masque:

See what I mean!! Romantic 10 nights in Rome, by himself!!!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:37pm Caryn:

Hell, if you get 82 grand for wanking off in your room, that's definitely not bad. Of course, if the money comes from doing it in front of a net camera for some horny pervs, maybe not so much.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:37pm See Through Your Masque:

@Dan B: Sadly, you're probably right.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:38pm See Through Your Masque:

@Caryn: Consult an accountant before establishing a webcam business like that--for a small fee, they can save you thousands! You can deduct the webcam and computers as business expenses!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:40pm Caryn:

@STYM: I think I prefer traditional porn (in magazine form). Gotta follow family traditions.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:41pm See Through Your Masque:

As long as you're open about it! (Though there's less money to be made in reading porn...)
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:41pm Caryn:

Peeking over my laptop occasionally at the tv. "Escape from New York" is on. Nice!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:43pm Dan B From Upstate:

Listening to Night People, Watching Syracuse, and playing a vidya game. Multitasking!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:44pm Dan B From Upstate:

Escape form NY sounds nice, though. I've STILL never seen it.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:45pm Caryn:

I think you need to get on that at some point, Dan. Highly entertaining movie. Still prefer "They Live", but primo Carpenter anyway.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:46pm Dan B From Upstate:

Oh, I watch They Live every few years. I think I'm due soon. I genuinely love that movie.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:48pm Caryn:

Yay, a fellow "They Live" worshipper!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:50pm Caryn:

I wonder what I'd see if I looked at a GOP debate with the glasses on?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:50pm JJJ:

Damn daylight savings again
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:51pm Dan B From Upstate:

@Caryn: http://imgur.com/HS6oh
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:52pm miss cheri:

ohh,, caryn i'm sorry i forgot to ask you do you have a copy of "friends with benefits"?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:52pm Caryn:

Sorry, no, cheri.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:53pm Caryn:

Heh, Dan!
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:55pm Dan B From Upstate:

So long who cares... right? What happened to that one?
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:57pm Dan B From Upstate:

Good night, guys.
  Thu. 3/22/12 7:57pm Joey:

Good show. I need to meet the other Joey...
