I use Gnome 3 because I like it. I don't care how it works just that it works and is user friendly. I've installed Debian on lots of friends and relatives computers because it's so damn easy to use people who had never considered Linux said "ohh this is cool." Gnome make linux on the desktop a possibility.

I like to monitor the brown snow in the forest near my house. I have noticed that the deer and rabbit turds tend to collect more sunlight and cause the snow to melt around them. Porcupine turds tend to fall out of trees and usually embed themselves in the snow at a sufficient depth to prevent the sunlight from reaching them. Bird turds are generally whitish in color and do not attract sunlight and are therefore "turd neutral". Basically porcupines are good rabbits are bad and the leading cause of Turd Made Global Warming.If Exon or Bp will give me money I am sure I can prove rabbit turds are the leading cause of global warming not fossil fuels. In fact i am the leading Turd warming scientist in the universe.

is about getting your buddy to agree with you and now they even have fake buddies. I'm sure this is the only time this happened. Kind of how 93% of scientists believe the earth is flat, or is it colder or hotter or do the buffaloes fart more methane than bison? Peer reviewed scientific papers can be trusted to be factual as much as a Catholic priest can be trusted around a young boy.

Galileo is a good example of how peer review works (you know your buddy agreeing with you). 97% percent of scientists called Galileo a heretic and a denier of flat earth.
In the modern day we have liars like Dr James Hanson for example, but most of the nonsense spewed about global warming is coming from politicians and celebrities who are considered climate scientists by idiots like you.

Idiots should keep their mouths shut so no one knows how stupid they are. An F-150 in a 1/2 ton truck, mine averages 20mpg. An Explorer is a 1/4 ton truck,and what do you suggest to drop three kids off at school, a Smart car? Let me guess an enviro nutjob like yourself believes in sending perfectly good vehicles to the wreckers because they are last years model and not cool enough. Who cares about the C02 emissions from the manufacture of new vehicles.

My daily driver is an 87 F-150 I6 4speed, slow but fuel efficient and can haul a heavy load (my work truck). My wife drives a 96 Explorer, her commute is less than 5 minutes between work and dropping kids off at school. We share a 97 Dodge neon for highway trips, gets 40 MPG with some mods and cheap on parts if your somewhat of a mechanic. Then there is the big work truck a 2006 Dodge 1 ton diesel hardly get used at all unless I need to use the big trailer. None of my vehicles have rust or any body damage, look nice and meet all emission regulations. Old vehicles are very much alive for 20 years if you treat them well and people like me enjoy swapping a motor or tranny on a Sunday afternoon.

The grandson of Joseph Stalin wants a criminal case to be opened against Ukrainian investigators of the 1930s mass famine. Last week a Ukrainian court put the blame for the famine on Stalin and several other officials. Evgeny Dzhugashvili believes the sentence is libelous and wants the agents of the Ukrainian Security Service involved in the case as well as the judges who reviewed it to be punished for the decision, he told the Ukrainian newspaper Sevodnya. http://rt.com/news/stalins-gra...

Northern climate if you can't farm or graze or drill oil the land is useless. It's to cold to do anything else up here. But we do have a very rapid growing season (4 months of sunlight 18 hours a day) and billions of ares of grassy leafy things that go to waste every year.

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
