      Hmm....I thought rumor had it...that the Obamas could easily be found hanging out at Bill Ayers [wikipedia.org] house in Chicago before the presidency...?

      :)

  • ...And go back in time to protect the President from time-travelling assassins. But while you're in the past, try not to change anyting. You can ask Obama for tips on that before you leave! *rimshot*

    • Just buy a copy of baseball scores from the newspaper man. Oh wait...that wouldn't be much use in the future would it?

        What I intend to do is look up winning lottery numbers, then tell my past self about them.

        For science, you see.

        Will my telling myself about future (for my past-self) winning numbers affect the blind forces of random chance to the extent that those numbers will no longer be selected on their date of draw?

        This is a question that needs to be answered. Also, the question of what sort of obscene luxury yacht I'm going to buy also needs to be answered.

      It would take a lot longer to look up Romney. You'd have to search all 5 or 6 of his houses.

        Five or six? You don't know how many houses he has?

        That's okay, he's probably not sure either...

          Yes, but he can assure you that nearly all [wikipedia.org] of them are in the good ol' United States of America!

            You can't say the same about his money, though.

            The former governor believes the United States is the greatest nation on God's green earth, but apparently his money prefers an island in the Caribbean.

              So does Charlie Rangel's, I hear.

                So does Charlie Rangel's, I hear.

                Is Rangel running for the GOP nomination too? I swear, I can't keep track of all these guys. Just wait 'til he finds out he's the wrong shade for that party. He could have just asked Herman Cain.

                I say we send both Rangel and Romney to live in the Caymans where their money can keep them warm.

              His money is much safer on a Caribbean island than in the hands of the GSA

                Not just "safer" but without all those fussy disclosure laws about where the money came from, which is probably what's more important in Romney's case.

          It flip-flops.

        I did a search and it pointed me towards MIT's robotics department for some reason.

    The census doesn't cover kenya..
  • Meigs Field was turned into a park almost ten years ago and I never even knew.

    I took off and landed there hundreds of times in Flight Simulators 4 & 5.

  • He didn't live there in 2000. I have it on good authority from my buddy Phil who read it on a Fox News forum posting that he was in his birthplace Kenya the whole year conducting socialist, Muslim meetings. It was all staged by the liberal media because they knew he would become President in 2008. After all, if you hear on the Interweb, it must be true. :P

    In 2000 I had several coworkers who moved out of their apartments and into their cubicles. They reasoned that they spent so much time there anyway, and got free high speed internet, it didn't make sense to pay for rent, gas, and utilities just to spend 8-10 hours a week in traffic. The company quietly encouraged it too, moving everyone to a building that had shower facilities in the restroom and allowed them to install curtains and inflatable doors on their cubicles.

    I wonder if the census counted them as living in our office building, or if it just skipped them entirely. I suspect it skipped them, because the census takers wouldn't have come to our office park and the company wouldn't want documentation that it violated zoning laws. Still it's fun to think that 60 years from now their grandchildren might find them listed as "Mr. H Potter, the sleeping bag under the desk, cubicle 5, row 8, 2nd floor, building 9," etc. Then again, they were engineers whose 20s and 30s were spent reading slashdot and literally living in their cubicles... they probably didn't have kids.
