This summary is rather longer than usual, so I've organized it somewhat
differently from normal.

Each individual subject line has its own little section, and the sections
are ordered by decreasing message count.  The idea is, when you get bored,
you can be reasonably certain that nothing more interesting than what you've
already read is waiting below, so you can stop reading without worry.

Links of the week:

    Robert Shiels, looking for something to do with his 40MB, asks about
    Doom for the palmpilot[1], which quickly morphed into a discussion of
    the difference, if any, between pr0n and erotica[2][3][4][5][etc], class
    structures, and whether men are apologetic about being men[6], then
    into bad advertisements that will be covered in the 'Shitverts'

    ARP was complaining about a commercial for something called 'one2one',
    which he evidentally thinks is American, but I've never heard of them.
    matt jones dislikes the commercial, too[1].  There's discussion of a
    bad Coke commercial, too[2], leading to discussions of how clean
    Manhattan is[3] and whether brands like Coke really need to advertise
    still[4], leading in turn to branding and napster[5] and how funny
    british people talk[6].

I'm {48,n}% gay
    Various people took a test measuring how gay they are and reported
    back to the group.  I think Randal[1] is the gayest straight person
    here (I'm pretty sure he's mentioned Jennifer Connelly before, which I
    take as evidence of straightness).  I couldn't figure out who the
    straightest gay person was; it would have helped if people would have
    reported their actual claimed sexual preference along with their
    scientifically determined gayness quotient.  Next time, people, do it

America's Wildest Chases
    ARP discovered one of the wonders that Fox TV has foisted on the
    American public[1].  This may help explain some of the jokes on the
    Simpson's for people living on the right side of the ocean (that's
    right opposed to left, not right opposed to wrong).

    This morphed into a subthread on America's Wildest Cheeses, which
    aren't actually very wild[2].  And for reasons I'm not at all clear
    about, that morphed further into Michael's plans to make 'eggs with
    salad cream' on Wednesday[3]

    It also, somewhat more reasonably, morphed into a discussion about how
    fast one can drive, both legally and actually, in various

    Movies, starting with _Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back_, with
    mentions of how annoying Jay is[1], two word quotes in other
    Kevin Smith movies, and whether something that short is
    actually a quote[2], a shorter replay of the recent
    liberals-can't-take-a-joke thread[3].  Next up came Nick LaBute's
    ouvre[4], which is rather bleak and misanthropic[5].

    Simon Wistow looks for recommendations for new music; he also compares
    faux layered clothes to a variety of other social ills[1].  Celia
    suggested Echolalia[2]; Paul Mason called stuff from 94-96 "old
    stuff"[3], reminding me that I'm getting old.  Other people had other
    suggestions, but based on the names nothing that would appeal much to
    me, so my eyes glazed over.  Don't like that?  Next week, you can do
    the summary.  This group talks way too much.

    Does it actually turn interesting?.  Some little book by a guy named
    Tolkein or something like that was mentioned, too.
