1) it's fun for all ages

2) it's the only musical i can remember actually enjoying

3) it has the least-annoying disney sidekick since tinkerbell

"observando el eclipse, mientras que un perro ladra estúpido" ...

there's a difference?

Wikipedia defines a chomskybot as:
"...a program that generates paragraphs which appear similar to those in the corpus of Noam Chomsky's linguistic works, but are humorously devoid of any meaning, by combining at random phrases taken from Chomsky's actual works."
Of course, this refers only to the computer-based chomskybots. Carbon-based chomskybots (that infect the comments of many political blogs) differ from their silicon-based siblings in these ways:
  1. they parrot chomsky's political (rather than linguistic) babblings,
  2. they are more annoying,
  3. they actively (rather than passively) resist factual evidence, and
  4. they make far less sense.

exorcising diet

dustbury says that jeff brokaw says that:
"We do not understand diet and nutrition and motivation well enough to make general policy about it."
the only thing i'm sure about my diet is that i've lost over 20 pounds mostly by cutting back on soda from 2-to-4-per-day to 1-to-2-per-week. i wonder how much more weight i could lose if i ever exercised...
