Only On Message Boards

What did we do for entertainment before the Internet?

Someone posted a very touching question on a message board:

"can u help mi say son of a pregnant dog and other bad wrds this kid is trying to make mi feel bad (sic, sic and sic)

And pat came this noble and shockingly dull response:

"My advice would be to take a holistic view, and instead of reacting in anger, _pray_ for the kid. See the difference it will make in that kid's behavior!"

Did I tell you that this exchange occurred on the forum of an online dictionary site? They have a pretty decent English-Hindi dictionary too. The original poster could have simply looked up the relevant words. And why is the responder/moderator getting into a "Buddhism for the Bullied" lecture?

All he had to say was "garbhavati kutiya ke bete". So it's a harsh, unwieldy phrase and takes too long to roll off the tongue, a real risk during an altercation. It could also lead to another round of forum posting: "wht iz garbhavati?"

At least the kid would have come away with his faith restored in dictionaries and message boards. (Anyone remembers gems like "What is LMAO" on USENET? I know, next you will ask me, "wht iz USENET?")

Online Casinos
For the longest time, when people wanted to play table games, they had to get in the car or get on a
plane and head to a casino. This is not the case anymore, as online casinos have popped up all over
the place to help players get the action they are looking for. Some people do not trust online casinos,
but in reality there is no reason why you should ever doubt them. Online casinos are incredibly
easy to use and they are reliable in nature. So how can you find a good online casino? The first
thing that you need is a site that you can trust. Without that, you really do not have much at all.
Online casinos must be trustworthy in how they handle your money and also how they handle the fairness
of the games. You should know that all online casinos are required to submit to regulation from an
independent casino monitoring source.
