Everything has a cost. Even breathing clean air has a cost. I got a another good idea for you... Why don't we just tax the air we breathe? Imagine the trillions the government can make to support the failing U.S. Post Office. But I got a better idea! We could always shut down the US Post Office and let Private Businesses take over such as FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc. Then the government can tax them for all the snail mail.

Everyone buys food. Food retailers use IBM POS systems, IBM payroll systems, IBM stock control...

... Or move to India. I hear it's quite nice out there.

LOL! My thoughts exactly! Here is the quote for those unfamiliar with the movie Taken: "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you."

Slashdot blows all of that away, changes it from spherical to triangle (not sure where that came from)

I am curious as well where they got triangle from. I kept staring at the image trying to look for that damn triangle and could not find it. I think I am sun blind now >.>
