Agreed. How is the gmail address NOT a real email address? Do you want everyone to buy a domain and then set up storage, etc? And then try to copy all the gmail features, including the excellent spam detection? I have a real gmail address, as well as a real name address, as well as several work specific addresses, all ongoing to my very real gmail account. (of course, if you offer SEO services and send from a gmail account then that is an example of a not real email address)(yeah I'm talking to you Rosa at seorankingexpert@hotmail.com and friends)

Personally, if I had cancer I would try everything else before I would accept barbaric chemotherapy treatments. As the saying goes, "if the cancer doesn't kill you, the chemo will". .

And in my case the chemo mopped up the excess cancer cells from all the cancerous lymph nodes they couldn't remove via (barbaric) surgery. So it might be barbaric but in my case it worked. One more nodule removed, several unremovable but controlled by (barbaric) Avastin. So chemo is bad, very bad, but it can work. Of course there are the alternatives..... (no thanks).

I thought this was talking about ice floating on NthAmerican and/or European soil? So go ahead and retry the experiment by putting glacier quality ice and see if it floats in a cup of dirt. And anyway, this is all rubbish, crust has been going up and down throughout the earth's history so this isn't special.....

Society is changing to interact less in person, and more via electronics .

Tell me more about this electronic breeding you are suggesting? Austism as an evolutionary step? Not likely, but todays society is more likely to allow autistic people to survive and to cope and even to breed than past ones.

ps: if only autism did mean 'good at math!' - our's takes too many short cuts and struggles where she should succeed. She's great at sport trivia though!

ps further: and a bit later on I see that sOnicfreak seems to have also worked out this electronic breeding! I think that's what he's saying anyway.
