+ - The North Pole turns into a lake->

Two weeks of warm weather in the high Arctic have caused an aquamarine lake to begin forming since July 13, according to the North Pole Environmental Observatory’s camera.
The National Snow and Ice Data Centre has reported that temperatures in early July were one to three degrees Celsius higher than the year’s average over most of the Arctic Ocean."

I know how this ends...with a giant sucking sound as the world's oceans drain into the earth's core. Then, as steam builds inside the planet, the earth turns into a giant exploding kernel of popcorn.

Congratulations to NASA on finding away to alleviate their funding problems! Time to buy property on the mars is now!

As a Documentary Film Maker, I am glad that any one is watching my films and happy to redistribute them. But, I don't want TV station taking my hard work and making a profit off them and not giving me a cent. I also often use footaged owned by large productions houses (As time machines are unavailable, I can't reshoot historic moments), and there clause are pretty standard, that for every dollar I make they want a peice; which, as a film make (that cost to produce films) I need to make money so have no problem with this logic.

correctly designing the content for the target audience is essential. Any editor/director will spend hours on this. If you download "oil changing for dumies" use the fast farward or skip button or download the content at the level you need. i for one hate badly haked up instructional vids because some people are to lazy to skip a head

Only through hard work and perseverance can one truly suffer.
