The US State Department has officially advised Americans not to visit Baghdad or any other part of Iraq.

Out of morbid interest, what the heck was the advice before? Go, but bring suntan lotion?


St. Louis must be destroyed!

Me: "I have a job and five credit cards and am looking into signing a two year lease.  THAT MAKES ME OLD."
Josh: "I don't have a job, I have ONE credit card, I'm stuck in a lease and I'm 28! My mom's basement IS ONE BAD DECISION AWAY!"

Probably something like "Go, but don't expect us to airlift you out before we bomb the place"


On an interesting side note, do you know that Canada put out a travel advisory for the states this fall?

It will not last the night;
But oh, my foes, and oh, my friends --
It gives a lovely light."

Never eat anything bigger than your head. Never eat breakfast at a place called Mom's. Never eat supper at a place called Pop's. Don't buy any flying carpets. And don't bring any tapes of the Love Boat. ;)
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

I don't think many of us do

as an aside, i was in Lebanon a few years back when the dutch goverment had it under a 'go if you want to, but you're on your own' warning

one of the neicest places i'd been in years

Defy Gravity!

The Doctor: The universe is big. It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles... and that's a theory. Nine hundred years and I've never seen one yet, but this will do me.
