Comment How many accidents could he have caused (Score 5, Interesting) 427 427

I hate when people talk, text and drive. You jam somebody, they are going to take the phone from their head and try to call again, or at least figure out what is going on. This is probably more distracting than just talking to somebody.

Comment Big news to our family (Score 1) 183 183

We had a son that was born at 23 weeks/0 days. Yea, that is 4 months premature. At this time (he turns 4 in December) the biggest problem he has is chronic issues with his gut. The odds are that he never got the correct mix of bacteria in his gut early on, because he was in a sterile environment when his body should have been getting mama milk and the crap that goes along with it. ;)

This is good.

There are no trees!
No Lakes, no water at all!
There is just deep, grey dust.
Dust, dust, dust."
