This I believe

He didn't want to listen, so I gave him a good slap

Hello racism!
Amazing. I just heard a story on the BBC about all the problems they are having in South Africa between the native south Africans and the white farmers. They interviewed a few white farmers and I was amazed by their whole rascist thing they have going on.
Good lord what a mess. Oh, and I realize that white farmers are now being targeted by African groups, so in a f*cked up way it goes both ways.
I think this is the article that the news story was based on (or vice-versa):
Race tensions on South Africa's farms
We went to find the white farmer in question. At the gate of his town house, he at first denied the allegation of assault - then he admitted it.

"He didn't want to listen, so I gave him a good slap.

"That's how we work with them," he said.

"Do you realised people will accuse you of racism?" I said.

"You can do that," the farmer said.

"Is that a fair accusation?" I asked.

"Yeah, in America, in England, there, in all places there is racism - it's the order of the day.

Ugh. I know nothing about South Africa anymore (since the research papers I did in college) and I don't want happyrobot to ever become one of these yelling forums discussing the topics of the day, so let's move on to something fun-ish...

We went to Nobu last night and it was a grand time - especially since we weren't paying! Woooo! Many dishes came and went and our stomachs were filled with tasty morsels of the fishy type.
Highlights included: yummy sea urchin sushi, beautiful toro tartare, yellowtail with jalapenos, and delicious fresh water live eel.
Thx to Reba for the fine dinner!

I don't want to piss off any friends or family, but when I see AOL addresses, especially at work, I brace for the worst. I know that not all AOL users are dumb, but most of the dumb emails I get at work and at the robot come from AOL accounts.
Sorry, I don't want to be accused of ISP-Profiling and get sued by AOL users who believe I unfairly deleted their email instead of responding.
Or pulled them over for speeding.

But yea, I know that not all AOL users are tards, but all tards are AOL users.
Or so it seems.
(my opinion of course - don't hate me)

Speaking of South Africa
According to our pal Eric, when he worked at a hotel here in Manhattan, Winnie "I'm the crazy one" Mandela called room service to complain that her club sandwich had a toothpick in it - a toothpick that someone had planted in the sandwich to kill her.

I like those South African accents, very pretty.
History and present stuff is ug-ly.
from what little I know about it.
I can't get all "formummy" about this- because I know so little'- as is the case with Israel.
I do know I hate sushi.
but you make it sound so great, makes me almost forget how gaggy I think it is.

Ooh, I've had the toro tartare at Nobu. It was fucking amazing. The restaurant was full of out of town retards, though, myself included.

Hey Rich,

You spelled "racism" incorrectly in the title. Just thought you should know.

Your ever-friendly QA, proofing friend,
