    The worst concept for a phone application, ever.

    I found this story when checking tech news. It is probably the worst concept that you could possibly come up with for a downloadable phone application. It's called the 'baby shaker' - I am not shocked by much but... wow. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30354894/ The plug- Absolutely repulsive...

    The off-topic topic

    *---------------------------------------------------------* This is very successful at another forum that I visit. Essentially what this does is create a place to post and discuss topics that are not necessarily important enough to warrant starting a new thread over. As there is no set topic...

    Article- Roridula dentata conservation and biology

    I found this article while surfing, and I found it fascinating and I think you will too. This is a plant we don't hear much about. The article itself has pictures of both the plant and its bug. http://www.kew.org/msbp/plantstories/Roridula_dentata.htm

    Anatomy of a opinion

    [sarcasm, humor. Not speaking personally but broadly ] Everyone who disagrees does not know the whole story. If they knew everything-that-I-knew, then everyone would have the same opinion on the matter. Mine. Because of course I am right. If I did not think I was right, then I would not have...

    I keep repeating myself, suggestions to help one keep from repeating themselves.

    Weird and abstract question. In the past few months I have noticed that I have picked up an annoying tendency. In almost everything I write from papers to posts I have noticed that there are redundant and repeating phrases, each worded slightly differently. Often I do not catch these because...

    My sundew will not die.

    Since I have been in college I have not had time for a CP collection. So I left my few plants at home in my parents [in]capable hands. That was 3 yeas ago. As expected, everything died… except the… D. aliciae. It is still alive after three years of tap water, on the windowsill (they removed my...

    If this is not disturbing I don't know what is.

    Seems Rome has a new mayor. But he seems very disturbing. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1915484/Rome's-new-mayor-promises-purge-of-migrants.html Alright, yes it is a British newspaper article and yes, it is just a mayor. But how can anyone be elected that says things like...

    Why do computer problems always happen at the worst possible time?

    This is like a bad horror story. I hate computers, I really do. -rambling- I have a research paper due tomorrow and was working on my laptop. I re-opened the word document to continue it and the word document refused to open… then the computer said I did not have enough visual memory to open...

    Ralph Nader's back for another go.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23319781/ Its admirable that he is always fighting the two-party system, but on the third time around, my question is: WHY? He got 0.3% of the vote last time. While a third party would be good, is this really the right man to do it? Even Ron Paul would do better...
