I don't really believe in global warming, only because I see so many companies using it as a scare tactic to make money. I can't take it seriously. Every commercial break is a barrage of "go green" propaganda. But I'll be the first to admit I've read nothing scientific about climate change. I honestly don't care either way. I'm not interested at all in "saving the earth maaaaan." I'd rather just go about my life. As far as I'm concerned, the world can go up in flames the second I die. Sorry if I sound like a troll, I really don't intend to. Just wondering if there are others out there who feel the same as me.

Growing up, the monotony of the NASA channel was always a running joke between my friends and I. The majority of the time, all the channel showed was a wide shot of alot of people in a control center working, with no sound or commentary whatsoever. I don't see how that could be interesting to anyone.

sonamchauhan writes "A Londoner helped his wife deliver their baby by Googling 'how to deliver a baby' on his mobile phone. From the article: 'Today proud Mr Smith said: "The midwife had checked Emma earlier in the day but contractions started up again at about 8pm so we called the midwife to come back. But then everything happened so quickly I realized Emma was going to give birth. I wasn't sure what I was going to do so I just looked up the instructions on the internet using my BlackBerry."'"

Asperger's is an over diagnosed, fad, crutch disease that every one claims to have in order to feel special. If you have Asperger's why are you on a message board leaving long comments to other people? I couldn't throw a rock without hitting someone whose doctor says he has Asperger's just because he has eccentric personality traits like every other human being on the planet.

Well I guess if you want to plan for every scenario and have every convenience possible then you could bring a number of items, but I don't like worrying about or lugging around lot of stuff when I travel. I went to Russia for 2 weeks this summer and didn't bring anything electronic but my camera and PSP. Didn't even have a cell phone while I was there. I sent my mom a post card and told her about the trip when I got home. To each his own.
