Is there a connection between homosexuality and anal sex, where if you are gay you are predisposed to it? Or is it a "second best" option that allows two men to experience intimacy, and thus is welcomed?

Similarly to what rearden said, no, there is no direct connection. Some people like some things, others are disgusted by those things. It's the same as everything else; what is it about women that is attractive to a straight man? It depends on the man.

For an unrelated comparison, do you prefer Coke or Pepsi? Personally I don't drink much cola, but when I do, it's RC :)

Oh, it's so difficult to avoid ranting about ISP's. I have a friend from the East (which means Portland because I'm from Beavertron) who works downtown at an ISP and is excited by CenturyLink's connections. He didn't believe me when I explained my speed was symmetrical and limited at 25Mbps, because I told him that was the slowest available. Another friend informed me of Comcast's new modems. They're the 3.0 version of modems.

Technology is going too fast for average people to understand, and many think these "fast" DSL and cable speeds are an amazing jump from initial DSL and cable speeds. It seems our options are finding a magical way to overpower the sparkly wires in Comcast ads and the moronic experts in CenturyLink ads, both of which are believed, like witch-hunting experts, or wait for the gradual expansion.

I appreciate your questioning, and that it won't stop, but stopping use of certain parts of your brain is a tough thing to do. :)
I'm wondering if you've visited other doctors. I've heard many stories from people like myself, and your wife, who appreciate or despise a doctor's advice. Some people I know from support groups have tried other doctors and/or medical institutions with great outcomes.

Best of luck to both of you in your continuing endurance.

Sprints WiMax network IS a different technology that gives higher speeds than 3G, so why wouldn't it be called 4G? its the 4th generation of tech.

It could just be called WiMax. It's not actually the fourth generation, it's just a new generation after 3G and 3.5G were prominent.
