The US is down
Seriously, can we reboot this shit or something?

It's been down for quite some time. Nobody really wants to admit it, though.
The barbarians should be invading within a few decades, I think.
Canada's still working. Maybe we can get them to download a "clean copy".
Yeah, well, we had a good run.
Let's hope the next set of world superpowers, China and India (most likely), learn from our mistakes.
I just hope we bow out gracefully. Spain, France, and England had to have "Most Powerful Nation" status pried out of their hands. They objected. It was messy. People died.
Maybe we can be "second among equals", that doesn't sound too bad.
France? Most powerful?
Well, it was pretty short -- within Napoleon's lifetime.
Shoot, with all the T-Bills we keep selling China, we're not already?
Good point STH. But are we really China's BFF or are we just China's bitch? :-P
Maybe global warming will watercool it, then we can can overclock it, install folding@home, decode, decipher, and understand all of the human genome, genetically engineer solutions to all of humanity's problems and ascend to a higher plane of existence.
The finishing touches arrive Monday. It's gonna be suhweeet.
