What's the funniest ever episode of Seinfeld?

<r>costanza is without a doubt the funniest tv character of all time...seinfeld's comedy is harder to pick up but he underwent the least amount of change throughout the show and his delivery is always impeccable. my favorites (the eclair, the race, the switch)<YOUTUBE id="vGHTcF4thLwhttp" url="http:...

Obama did it

<t>the pakis definitely knew. They were quick to dispel any implicit accusation following obama's address last night but are now (less than 8 hours) distancing themselves from the claim that while it was a sole US mission it would not have been possible without the continual support of pakistani int...

we're all going on a summer holiday

<t>There's a part of me relishing in his failure which is only possible had he won I guess, not that I was stupid enough to vote for him. Worst part of my undergrad was walking through the already congested archway that connects lower with upper quad populated by 5-10 students in a few cubic feet of...

anyone here a UCLA grad ?

<t>SAT and GRE are not enough to detect any inherent differences if there any to begin with, that is to say even if one race had a a mean IQ of at least one standard deviation above another. IMO is hardly an indicator as well I would say. It's bizarre that China lost to Russia a few years ago given ...

<t>caltech hates asians. Berkeley is also known to be tough on asian applicants. UCLA makes sense both location wise and performance wise. It's a lot lower than 50% for grad programs in the science I think. especially for the UCs, UCSD lists 92% domestic on its website under something to the effect ...
