I'm not too sure about that.

I remember a movie called "Atomic Café" that compiled various newsreels, documentaries and propaganda films from the late '40's through the '60's. In one of them a scientist explained that there are three components to an atomic explosion: heat, concussion, and radiation. Then he proceed to add that, of the three, radiation was not much of a concern.

Purely anecdotal, I know.

My wife has fibromyalgia.

It took me some time to notice, but eventually I started to see a pattern, whereby on days when she drank a diet soda with Aspartame, she had more pain. I started getting Diet Rite at one point (the only diet soda made with Sucralose for several years). She seems to have more good days once I got the Aspartame out of her diet.

No scientific study to back me up. Just my own observation.

Your copy(the lamp) is yours. The smoke/light is not.

Nonsense. Both are mine.

That's the funniest thing I think I've seen on /. in months.

If that is the case, then you should keep your car off of my driveway, your light from my eyes, your smoke from my airspace, your songs from my ears, and your ideas from my mind.

Since there is no difference, by your own words, between any of those, any violation of the above should be treated as a criminal trespass and prosecuted accordingly.
