Gotta love those Miami touch-screen voting booths that are changing people's voted for "Republican" canditates to the Democratic option... I wonder if there is any monkey buisness going on here... you would think they would have tested the damned things!

I taught at a University in Miami for a year, so I have some experience with the people down there. Well, here it goes: They are idiots! These people saying hitting a button puts up the other candidate are probably hitting the other button, but don't ever realize it. I mean, its not as bad as West Palm, where a few hours after people voted they said they voted for the wrong candidate. My statement when I used to be heading out of Miami: Time to go visit the Original Fifty.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

Oh great, here we go again.. Of course, Jeb Bush won by a large enough gap that it didn't change the results this time, but this whole state needs a major fucking overhaul. (And I don't think it's gonna happen with a Bush in charge.)



"But the funniest thing was, when I was leaving the bay
I saw three ships a-sailin', and they were all headed my way
I asked the captain what his name was, and how come he didn't drive a truck
He said his name was Columbus, I just said 'Good luck'. "

How exactly did this happen...and like you say, shouldn't tests have been run? Or is this just another case of old people being ignorant and belligerant towards technology. I was in my cell phone company's main retail store to have them fix their crappy phone/service...and some 75 year old man was bitching about the atm-like machine they use to take payments now. Working at a 24 hour drugstore in an older/affluent section of this city has also enlightened me to the fact that many old people feel they are owed something. (like 39 cent pineapple on the last day of the ad)



"HHH, you should probably do the job here to put RVD over for the good of the company." "Vince, I'm just a caveman! I was out hunting when I fell in some ice and was unfrozen by your scientists. Your future world frightens and confuses me. You say these words like "job" and "put over" and "good of the company" but my primative mind can't grasp these concepts!"---Vince Mcmahon/Unfrozen Caveman Wrestler, Dr. Unlikely 17.9.02

Great thread title. It took me a moment to translate it, but once I did, I spewed Diet Coke on my monitor while laughing. Tim
