Maybe they were embarrassed for me.
A poll would be interesting.
Personally, I think that "Go and "Go! are two different names, so there is no problem.
Unless you get excited about the first one...
According to this (I didn't verify any facts) - http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_much_of_the_Earths_surface_is_inhabited_by_humans
About 1% of the surface is inhabited. So, an impact should directly affect people about once every 500 years. Maybe it's the next time?
That 1% is a shit answer. The link you provided states that 90% of the population occupies 3% of the land. That says nothing about how much of the remaining 97% of the land is occupied by the remaining 10% of the population.
For example, a very large farm would have a population density that would put it square into that nebulous 97%, but I would consider that farm to be part of the human habitat in that it is used to cultivate food to support the 90% of us who live in densely-populated areas.
You have that in all industries where the few make large amounts of money that the rest don't.
But as the anonymous coward said the real problem here is that the few drive the whole group.
Show me the engineer or scientist that is making 30 mil per movie? Really I want to see that engineer or scientist...

The electoral college is good for other reasons as well. If anything, my gripe is in the way we have to vote for one and only one candidate. As noted in much older stories on
