    Quality matters, though, I have to add.

    Is Christine around, or did she go hunting Volvos again? Today I read that in Norway there are 4.72 million (if I remember correctly) mobile phone contracts active, which would be 102% of the number of inhabitants - since that includes children below 4 and elderly above 90, quite a few people must use two or more phones/numbers simultaneously.

    The percentage of households with landlines seems to be 17 % (down from 19 % 30 years ago? )

    Regarding the article. Quote: “So last week I telephoned the World Glacier Monitoring Service and read out Bellamy's letter. I don't think the response would have been published in Nature, but it had the scientific virtue of clarity: "This is complete bull****."
    The World Glacier Monitoring Service is part of the University of Zurich, Switzerland. They would never use a term like bull**** or ********* or even *********, ******* ***********.

    They would, probably, say something like this: "Was für ein Trottel, wer hat Ihnen denn diesen totalen Schwachsinn erzählt??" and then continue "We politely disagree with the the statements presented. In our view, they contradict the data we have gathered."

    P.S.: There is a thread about global warming already, here. The most interesting parts are probably on pages 5 to 21 out of 23 pages.

    Touchdown, isn't that from football, where people with helmets and armor get ready to restart playing in the course of about 5 minutes, then play for about 5 to 10 seconds, before half of the players end up on a pile and the whole thing starts again?

    There's always something you can do to change it: go to a shop and ask for red lipstick. When the guy at the checkout asks "cash or charge?", you say "no, just put it on my bill".

    For such cases, I highly recommend Norah Jones, specifically the "Come Away With Me" album (That album in particular because it is the only one I have from her). Her music has a highly unwinding effect, that's for sure. For instance "Cold, Cold Heart" is on that album, great (not to be taken really personally, but then again, nice lyrics... ).

    I would agree with clulup on his musical recommendation and would add one of my own. I would suggest Sarah McLachlan's Mirrorball. A fun, technically beautiful performance.

    Also I would strongly recommend Nirvana's "Smells like Teen Spirit" as another calming and peaceful recording. Be sure to turn the AMP to 10 before starting the playback. It's cool because you can see the windows flex.

    If the move stress is really getting to you..........

    I was chatting with a bunch of folks the other day and one of the guys brought up the drink called a "Mind-eraser". Ever had one???

    It's made like this...

    First pour two oz. of Kahlua into a 12 oz. glass with ice in it. Then pour 2 oz. of ice-cold Vodka into the glass. Pour the vodka using a spoon to layer the vodka...don't let them mix. Then put 2oz of tonic water...again, try not to let them mix.

    Take a fat straw and stick it all the way to to bottom of the glass and suck the glass empty in a series of pulls on the straw...don't stop to taste. Here's what you brain thinks while drinking this drink....

    "Hmm, I don't know if this is a good idea but that girl with the big ...uh, eyes, is watching me and I want to be cool, okay here we go...sucking sucking, hmm cold Kahlua, not bad, but sweet sweet ugh, too!....huh?....end of kahula and now it must be Vodka but I can't taste it because of the sweet Kahlua...Wait!! ARGH I taste it!!! Warning!!! Massive amount of!!??...huh? what's this???...oh it's just tonic water!...mmmm that tastes good...so refreshing after that other stuff...and now I am done and everyone is cheering!!...man I am like so cool....."Give me another!!"...Man this girl is looking at me like I am really impressing her....okay here we go....Kahlua.....Ugh sweeet....okay, nothing, nothing, WARNING MASSIVE ALCOhol...ahhhh tonic water...those things are fribbin' notgithin..I cab drinb fibe of teb up thobse without.........wow.....how did I get here? Where the hell am I? ARGGGHHHH!!! Who is this in my bed!!!!!!"

    Was it Paul, the good-looking barman with the pink shirt? No, no, kidding, don't worry, I'm sure it wasn't!

    Nope, it wasn't Paul. As near as I can figure her name was Fluffy and the farmer was happy to have her back as he had counted on her wool for a new sweater.

He said that it is a reminder to never allow such atrocities again.
    Thanks for the link JP.
    It is a huge memorial in Berlin, and built late, but better late than never. I wonder if there will ever be a memorial for the other groups targeted, too, the Pole, Slav, Sinti, Roma, disabled, homosexual, politically incorrect, etc., five million out of the 11 million victims of the holocaust.

Politicians, Jewish leaders and Holocaust survivors were on hand for the solemn ceremony to inaugurate the monument designed by American architect Peter Eisenman." I think it is good to have this memorial for the Jewish victims, but I don't understand why they left out the others, or where their memorial will be.

    I would love to make up some of those stories, too...

    Something like: "Pilot lands airplane on a narrow beach in Virginia during a "Miss Virginia" photo shooting, claiming to be on a quest to save virgins"

    Is it me or an illusion that this thread is becoming too serious and SLOW? What’s going on here? Why the long faces?
    Chick, good luck on your move. If I am not mistaken, your moving mood affects the mood of this thread.
    I am done with finals yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeha!

    Claim?!!! Claim?!! I was on a frickin' mission from God!!!!! You think it's easy doing this job!!!! There I was at 35,000 feet, on the way to Atlanta when the F/O says, "Hey were right over Virginia Beach where they are having the photo shoot for Miss Virginia."

    There is this flash of heavenly light, a deep deep voice in my head says, "Save them in their hour of need". And the next thing I know we are on the beach, the main landing gear are buried in the sand and the F/O is trying to hit me with the fire-ax.........
