If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

If you live around Berkeley and have twenty minutes to spare, I recommend that you take part in Lily Liaw's linguistics experiment involving answering machine messages. She can make an appointment with you anytime during the day, this or next week, and my experience with it today was great fun. Note: she especially needs men! Mars Needs Women but 46 Dwinelle Hall Needs Men!
