An Animal That Lives Without Oxygen 166

Julie188 writes "Scientists have found the first multicellular animals that apparently live entirely without oxygen. The creatures reside deep in one of the harshest environments on earth: the Mediterranean Ocean's L'Atalante basin, which contains salt brine so dense that it doesn't mix with the oxygen-containing waters above."

HTC does right now. I have a VZW Touch Pro 2(AKA ATT Tilt 2 or HTC Rhodium) It does provide feedback to me. I also can easily tell if the wind is too loud for the other party to hear me and can turn my head to compensate. My wife hates it but I got used to it quickly and have grown to like it.

You are aware that the US built the GPS system right? We designed it. We paid for it. We launched it. We still pay for it to operate and be maintained.

Since the system gains it's "zero" from a ground based reference it only makes sense that it's based on a location in the US since we are the ones that built the system. It's nothing short of amazing that the Prime Meridian only moved 100m. That's a testament to the skill of those that came before.

Keep in mind that my tax dollars fund this and it's open for the whole world to use, so quit yer bitchin.

How come everyone's going so slow if it's called rush hour?
