The Space Elevator Will Mean: Less Parking, Weird Ribbon Thing, Constant Loud Whirring Noise, Increased Space Elevator Truck Traffic. Developers have submitted plans to build a massive space elevator in Williamsburg! This monstrosity, completely out of context with existing development in the neighborhood, will be accessible only to the wealthy, forcing thousands of average Williamsburgers from their homes and live-work spaces! Jobs the elevator will generate (operators, repairmen, astronauts) are certain to go to non-residents! Don't sit idly by and let this elevator cast its impossibly long, cold, and very narrow shadow over our homes! CALL 311 AND TELL THEM 'I JUST DON'T NEED THIS SPACE ELEVATOR!'"

Get up early three times a week and gym, bike, or run. It's difficult to be consistent going to the gym after work, since you may be drained or want to spend time with friends or family. Working out early also energizes you for the day, one you are a bit in shape (just a few weeks to adjust). Also, your workout doesn't need to be more than 30-45 minutes, but you should work out with some intensity, once you have worried up to being able to do so.
No, next up are sheeple.
It's too big to be a space station. I have a very bad feeling about this.
I should have googled Bachmann on this before I commented. That's funny.
It's like a Voice of America type thing. No big deal.
Well now, if Bachmann says so, it must be the right thing to do.
However, I would need to install iOS 5 on an iPhone 3G to really be able to perfectly reproduce the lag and latency that Android users have today.
SCO could have been Red Hat. They were THE Intel UNIX, and could have moved their huge, loyal base to Linux, and continued to grow it. They even had large hardware vendors supporting their OS when Linux was still a baby. Unfortunately, they decided to hire a short-sighted, litigious CEO. Good night, SCO. Good riddance, Darl.
Nice bonus, but $383,000,000 doesn't buy what it used to.
Once human consciousness can be stored in a machine, we can send relatively slow, machine-manned interstellar ships to explore the galaxy.
Wow, one sensible post. There used to be a lot of these on Slashdot.
