     Hungarian electronic resources FAQ

3.      Interactive services
3.1  What's available on the World Wide Web

 The following is the chapter recently removed from the main body of
the hungarian-faq. This is not yet completely re-edited for stand-alone
format, nor completing a collection of all important links has been
attempted. For more comprehensive WWW directories see, for example:
<http://www.hungary.com/hudir/>;, <http://www.hungary.com/hudir/>; or
 This version 0.2 contains some aditional links not shown in 0.1,=20
see the HTML listing appended near the end of this document!

 If you are using Hungarian interactive services from abroad (or vice
versa): please note that interactive Internet connections like WWW
may be very slow, even timing out during peak hours - try times of
lower network load when the response time is usually reasonable.

Subject: 3.1  What's available on the World Wide Web

 This document you are reading now is hosted at
<http://www.hix.com/hungarian-faq/hungarian-faq/web>;, and its directory
has a few other documents and several links to other sites of

 The Hungarian Home Page is at
<http://www.fsz.bme.hu/hungary/homepage.html>; with links to the
registered Hungarian www servers, including

     - the Prime Minister's Office:  <http://www.meh.hu>; (overseas users
    please notice that the use of the <http://www.hungary.com/meh/>;
    mirror is requested to cut down transatlantic traffic!)

     - a weather forecast page (this is updated daily, and includes weather
    forecasts, meteorological maps, and METEOSAT satellite images; this
    page is in Hungarian)

     - home pages of Hungarian cities (currently Budapest, Debrecen,
    Miskolc, Pecs, Szeged), and of educational and other institutions=20

     - a comprehensive list of Hungarian telnet services (e.g. library=20
    databases), gopher and ftp sites (3.2). The content of almost all the=
    Hungarian FTP sites is indexed and can be searched.

 The Hungary Online Directory (HUDIR) is at
<http://www.hungary.com/hudir/>; featuring a hierarchical
database of Hungarian online content worldwide. Currently it has links
in excess of 2500.

files in Hungarian and English, it offers an on-line English-Hungarian,
Hungarian-English dictionary (<http://www.hix.com/hix/szotar/>; - its
European mirror is at <http://tpri6l.gsi.de/szotar.html>;), and various

The general over all subject matter remains ME ME ME. So of course, I

Of course we're GREAT, why do things half-mast. Women attest to your
blandness in this regard.

Oh I love it when you talk about ME -- try and keep the comments about

biological debris that you are. Now, back to ME . . .

In any event it is the only culture worthy of your attention -- what else
do you ever post that is of demonstrated interest to anyone?

It would appear that I am the central subject of your Usenet posts. Try to
interest people in other subjects that you are expert on. As much as I
love talking about MYSELF and engaging in exchanges with others about
MYSELF, about the qualities of MY character, personality, etc etc, and in
spite of the fact that I reply to your posts to encourage more of your
thoughts and feelings about MYSELF, you should consider the interests of
others on SCM, but perhaps in this regard we share something in common --
fuck em, let's continue posting about ME!

Yes, exactly that's what I was thinking.  Soros' Open Society is an
alianated one where everybody is for him/herself, where no social bonds
exists.  Such society can easily be manipilated and controlled by even a
small cadre of elites having control of mass communication and the armed
forces.  In other words. it's Orwell's "1984" some 20 years late.
In light of his "credo", Soros' promotion of decriminalization of drugs
makes sense.

Yes, I remember, but do we really know if the story was true or just an
invention of Stalin's propogandists?  But even if so, I have no doubt
that in societies as that, such thing could indeed happen.

Is this not descriptive of the USA? Is this not the credo of the USA? It
celebrates Individualism, the rights of the individual, the supremacy of
the individual as differentiated from the rights of society or groupism.
The social bond that does exist is the ambition for the dollar. 

> Such society can easily be manipilated and controlled by even a

We can see that Hollywood churns out the manipulation and control by a
small cadre of elites. This establishes the mindset, and has done so quite
successfully -- given that individualistic Americans are quite cohesive
insofar as "I AM AN AMERICAN." The manipulation is cranked up by the spin
doctors whenever the political elite want an adventure -- invasion of
Grenada, arrest of the Panamanian drug-dictator, support for the
anti-democratic sultans of Kuwait.

Ah! Yes, don't bogart that joint, pass it over to me, and I won't give a
shit about the well-being of society in general, because I am right-now-happy.
There is quite an element of truth to this. However, let us not paint an
exaggerated picture of "DRUGS" There is a significant difference between
pot and the synthetic drugs, between pot and the hallucinogenics, between
pot and the assorted flavours of the opiates.

I would prefer that it be stricken from all criminal codes and ignored.
It produces a mild euphoric high that is much needed to relieve the
pervasive ambience of stress that is prevalent in our lives. It is an
intoxicant, of course, and thus impairs abilities, brain surgery, driving
vehicles, flying planes, posting to Usenet, etc. It can have a negative
effect on the respiratory system, but this fact has not made tobacco
smoking a felony. I think it would have a less damaging effect on the lungs
than tobacco, largely because I can't see hundreds of millions of people
smoking a pack or two of pot a day. Tobacco is inhaled then exhaled in a
breath, but pot is often inhaled and held in the lungs so that the full
potency can be felt. Under legalized conditions, pot is more likely to be
inhaled and exhaled like tobacco and consequently smoked in less quantity
than tobacco. 

Legal pot would begin the process of dissociation from other drugs, that
have a far more damaging effect. Liquor does not lead to crack use largely
because liquor is available from sources other than a crack dealer. As it
is now, pot is bought from a dealer who often handles other drugs, so the
temptation to try this or that is in your face. Legal pot takes it out of
the hands of those dealers. Why risk the hassle of downtime by buying from
a dealer of drugs when under legal conditions I could buy it at the 7-11,
along with several bags of Twinkies and a carton of Potato Chips.

Pot is an agricultural product, which would then be factory packaged and
distributed. There's a lot of employment here. There is a lot of profit for
shareholders here. Pension funds, mutual funds would find it a strong and
steady investment. 

Stressed out people would be calmed and less inclined to take to the
streets to cause havoc -- leaving more room for people like me to create my
own personal havoc. 

This is just off the cuff. I haven't taken a toke in over ten years. But I
do remember it as a lot of fun, a wonderful pleasure. Things are very rich
as they are -- music, sex, art, wind, rain, etc. but there is also an
alternative wealth to experience the same things while euphoric. I'm not
saying that being stoned is a better way to experience things -- only
another viewpoint.

There was the urban myth of pot called Manhatten Silver. It was said that
the NYPD had gone on an anti-drug blitz in 1965, consequently, as the doors
were being kicked in on pot raids, kilos were being flushed down into the
sewage system. City sewage workers, usually Harlem Habitues, noticed a lot
of cannibis plants growing in the sewers of New York. Evidently, the seeds
in all those kilos began to take root in the sludge and slime of Manhatten.
Because there was no sunlight getting into these sewers, the plants grew
without chlorophyll, consequently there was no green pigmentation in the
plants. They were grey and extremely potent. Hence Manhatten Silver.
