I don't believe that I will "die" per se but that I am limited in life only by the reaches of my imagination.
    If the universe is made up of the same atomic particles and you and I are a part of the universe then what makes you think that you are any different or better than anything in the universe? Is my existence more or less significant than a grain of sands? If I was to say yes then my ego would be coming into play therefore denying myself a place among the universe. I don't want to be selfish and self-centered although this is the way society thinks because particularly people generally are afraid to "die". I know this is prob a rant or whatever but lately I have been trying to just be in the time and space that i'm in and enjoy it as if time was irrelevant and perhaps what we consider to be a "year" really isn't a "year". I don't know if anyone is reading or understanding at this point, what I really want is to be involved in technology and computing for an eternity. even if i die today i still want to be connected to the internet. you see, you can kill my body but not my ideas. I am not merely a human with bones and flesh, I am also a information absorbing being transformed by evolution to be in a time and place (now, america) where we are just beginning to enter into the technological revolution.

    I was freaking out about the unsustainability of the "American way of life" a few years back. I was talking to my now ex-girlfriend, who basically said that Life will go on. Perhaps not in this country, but somewhere on Planet Earth... yes, humans will prevail.

    Yes, the "Sky is Falling" crowd fails to realize that the world is a much smaller and more crowded place now than even 50 years ago.
    More people die in natural disaters now because there are umm, more people in every town and every city.
    News of an earthquake here or a tsunami there spreads like wildfire because with the internet in everybody's hands, there's an instant 4 or 5 billion "news reporters" now that weren't there when news broke even just a few short years ago, before tecnology changed everything.

    It's just a matter of perception.

    The real perception for me is the fact that VERY, and I mean VERY, few people are going to be able to deal with life without petroleum.

    33 US Military Generals, Admirals: "Climate Change is Threatening America's Security" : TreeHugger

    High ups that are legally allowed to speak their mind on matters (i.e. - people not currently employed by THE UNITED STATES corporation) say that we'll likely see severe oil shortages by 2015. This is highly likely. Whenever the prices go up, people will stop going to work, which isn't going to help our unemployment rate, which is already at 10% and not showing signs of improvement.

    At some point, and there will be a tipping point, things are going to look very bad. People will be guzzling petroleum in their "personal transportation" as quickly as they possibly can, when we won't have oil for airplanes, jets, boats, buses, trucks that deliver food [that make nearly half our country OBESE] into urban cities, oil to lube the huge motors in the coal plants, oil to lube my bicycle chain, oil to lube the chainsaw, oil to lube every machine that exists in the world, oil to make ink, crayons, bubble gum, dishwashing liquids, deodorant, eyeglasses, glass in general, plastics, asphalt, fertilizers, CDs and DVDs, tires, ammonia, heart valves, etcetera.

    But... "personal transportation" makes up somewhere like 60% to 75% of the consumption of that petroleum. Pretty sad that more people don't ride bicycles.

    And it'll only start with Americans probly fleeing to other countries because what we are doing is unsustainable. I hate to bring the doom and gloom, but we're all gonna be in for a major shock within the next few years. When the Americans start emigrating from America, and everybody else is ALREADY paying $5 gallon or more as it is, Americans are gonna FREAK having to pay twice that in 5 more years. They won't be able to live without the junk food and all the other pleasures that come with The Dream.

    Yes. Quit your job. Sell your house and all of your possessions. Go find a high mountain, and sleep in a tent.

    I dunno... but I'm convinced I need to watch that movie, ASAP.

    I really hope that HP's first Palm Pre commercial looks like that, except with 3 times the words on the screen for any frame... so that people are like, "Whaaaa??" And then they get their friends to pay attention to it the second and third times, until they memorize all the [sub]liminal messages.

    Yeah no ***** people are getting shot and killed every day here in KC...turn on the local news, almost every other hour there is a new shooting story.
    I recently was up in Omaha, that place is like Gotham, it just feels dark, dense and scary.
    I don't think that means its the end of the world, I just am commenting on how crazy stuff is in some of these cities

    Biblically speaking, the event commonly referred to as the "rapture" is the last major event of the acharit-hayamim not the first. There are several other things to happen prior.

    The earthquakes are worth noting in that context. This is not to suggest that earthquakes are a new phenomenon. Rather, we can expect to see certain events occur during a cycle/season wherein there is a rash of them. (And, yes the other events have been occuring)

    I would like to have evadence of these climate changes why is it really happening? Because some dude in a suite on tv said so? O the polor ice caps are melting, how am I to know this is tru? I'm not goin to the north pole to measure some ice caps. O the temps rising and the worlds ending because of the whole in the o zone layer, umm I'm not a history researcher but I'm shure this has been going on for thousands of years, it's a little invention called the sun heats up the earth every now and then seriously have yu ever stop to think that this just may not be tru, or maybe it's ment to scare yu, or just might be an excuse to raise some prices? It's possible......

    Just a thought.... these things always seem to come in groupings. One plate gives way and shifts, and this causes new increases in other connected plates, and eventually they shift as well... each shift causing a major earthquake or event. It's a daisy chain effect. I'm wondering if San Francisco isn't at greater risk based on the last rash of quakes that have been happening.

    If you paid attention to the scientists who study the levels of carbon dioxide, you'd see that their charts completely correspond with global temperatures. Wherever carbon dioxide goes, the temp is sure to follow.

    The trends are cyclical, no doubt... but where SHOULD the trend be heading now??

    Well, it's supposed to be getting colder.

    What has actually started happening? I dunno. IANAS (I am not a scientist), but this scientist from Alaska, that just so happened to be on that socialist National Geographic program said that the temps were rising, since the carbon dioxide was rising --- totally off-beat from the pattern we've seen for the past millennium or so. We're supposed to be seeing lesser carbon dioxide in the atmosphere at this point in the cycle, but we're not... we're seeing more.

    As for what I'm experiencing myself, I feel like it's not just getting hotter or colder... BUT BOTH!! The temps are getting more extreme. Or, at least that's what it feels like as I'm getting older. Winters and nights are cooler; Summers and days are hotter. I can't prove it... but, if we were living in the cycle that the earth has been in now... we'd certainly be in the Global Cooling phase, which I know ain't good.

    In fact, I'd much rather have Global Warming than Global Cooling... but I think the new name, "Climate Change Activists", is a far more appropriate name. Climate Change is happening. Look at the global temperatures directly correlating with the cyclical carbon dioxide levels (not so cyclical anymore!!) for the past millennium. Climate Change is definitely man-made. If only man could actually understand how we are controlling the climate...

    Shop -- does this mean that its time ??

    That BARYE should be having his staff and fans gathering garlands, constructing wreaths, and polishing his crown ???

    Is the reckoning -- and the glorious day of BARYE's rightful restoration at hand ??
