The Chattanooga fiber network (electric power board provided - owned by the local city government) competes with comcast and at&t for internet, tv and telephone service. When you have a problem you call a local number and speak to a local person.... not someone two states away or a different country in some cases. And yes, the fiber here is legit. You get the speeds you pay for.

"E-cigs have far less second hand smoke", by saying this, you come across as implying that ECigs (or E-NI's = Electronic Nicotine Inhalators) have some second hand smoke, just not as much as an analog cigarette. An E-NI does not produce smoke. Period. The "smoke" you see when someone drags on one of these is created when it heats the liquefied nicotine solution into a vapor. You inhale a vapor, not smoke into you lungs, where the nicotine is absorbed into your blood stream. The ingredient list for the solution I use is as follows: USP Grade Propylene Glycol, FCC Grade Vegetable Glycerin, USP Grade Glycerol, Distilled water, Nicotine, Natural Flavors, Artificial Flavors, Citric Acid (as a preservative). Everything in here, with the possible exception of the artificial flavor, is totally safe for human consumption. I just started using a personal vape a few weeks back, and I have not bought any cigarettes since.

Woman Claims Wii Fit Caused Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome 380

Amanda Flowers always liked her Wii Fit but now she can't get enough of it. Amanda claims a fall from her balance board damaged a nerve and has left her suffering from persistent sexual arousal syndrome. From the article: "The catering worker said: 'It began as a twinge down below before surging through my body. Sometimes it built up into a trembling orgasm.' A doctor diagnosed her with persistent sexual arousal syndrome due to a damaged nerve."

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
