    Luckly you said "European" country. Otherwise I would say your mistaken as there is one country that's been doing that lately.

    And SwissCheese land is next on our list because we heard you got oil......of olay.

    If I don't know what you mean by civilised, we cannot really discuss whether a civilisation is civilised or not, and to what extent, can we? I know humans can do lots of very bad things, but I don't think humans are bad by nature. We are social and cooperative animals by nature, the key is that we learn to treat all humans as part of our social group, instead of only those of our tribe, religion, race, social class or nation. I think the world is developing in that direction.

    I agree that most animals don't premeditate murder. This is because they cannot premeditate anything anyway, they behave according to their genetic program. Maybe one should not call this a deficiency, but it certainly is not a virtue either. Chimpanzees can premeditate actions to some degree (few if any other animal species can), and their behaviour looks surprisingly similar to war or even murder sometimes.

    Many animals behave in a way which you would call cruel in humans. When a male lion takes over the leading position in a pride of lions, the first thing he does is kill all the baby lions of his former rival... seems cruel to us, but it makes sense for the long-term survival of lion populations.

    To this I would like to add..... blah blah blah blah blah....oh, and ....blah.

    Hi Christine! I only come in to visit and stir things up a bit...and then, sadly, for me, I must go off again and fight the God-less and ugly.

    BTW I think the best part of weddings is kissing the Bride. Something I try and do throughly and with careful attention. Because it may be my last chance for a couple of years.

    There is a urban legend in aviation that they were testing a windshield years ago and it failed the first chicken test horribly!!

When the intern came in with the second chicken to load in the air cannon he was stopped by one of the engineers who noticed that the chicken looked different then the "recently dead" chickens they used for the test. Turns out the intern had stuck the chickens in the freezer overnight so "it wouldn't spoil". They were firing this 4 pound rock at the window...

    Don't know if it's true but I have heard that story for years and years.

    LOL! I guess every profession has its legends. For instance there is this story of an oral undergraduate zoology exam at the university of Zurich. The professor thought he'd start with something easy to brake the ice, and presented to the student...

    ...a jar full of tadpoles and asked him what that was.

    Unfortunately, the student seemed to have grown up in a big town, he had no clue. The professor said "come on, you must have SOME idea...", so the student answered "Hmmm - Whale sperm?"

    Well, the Roman Catholic chuch got some degree of sweet revenge: The funeral of John Paul II will take place next Friday, the day Prince Charles wanted to marry Camilla, so he will have to postpone the marriage once again... poor chap.
    Hey, they copied my story!
    Well, you read it here first!

    Ms Bacal does seem rather mean spirited of late. I think much of this came from interviews a couple of months ago or so. (I seem to remember it on NPR back then.)

    I think I agree. They can get mad at another for an extended period in some cases, but it's nothing like what people are capable of. Of course, animals don't have iPods either, so it all balances out.

    Hey, wait a minute! I don't have an iPod. Does that mean I'm a/n (non-human) animal?

    Nope. I have a Treo (with a big SD card), and don't want to carry multiple gadgets on my hip (hence the Treo in the first place).

    Yeah the number if songs is a big difference, but I can load the SD card often enough that it works okay for me. The battery life has really been fine for me playing music off of the card; it's the streaming audio that *kills* my battery life!
