    if you can count the number of times a cricket chirps in one minute, divide it by 2, add 9 and divide by 2 again, you would have the correct temperature in Celcius.

    If Bill Gates saw a one dollar bill on the ground, bent over to pick it up, in that period of time he would have already made more than on one dollar. That"s how quick he makes money.

    Head bobbing is a common trait among ground birds like pigeons,
    pheasants, partridges, and chickens. Ornithologists call it
    the "optokinetic response", and it seems to help the birds'
    vision. Remember that a pigeon's eyes are set on the sides of its
    head, so that when it's walking around, the world sort of sails
    by in a confusing blur, like landscape viewed from a fast-moving
    train.

    The optokinetic response appears to compensate for
    this. Next time you're down at St. Mark's Plaza, take a look. The
    pigeon has a kind of inchworm gait. It jerks its head forward,
    then brings its body to meet it, then jerks its head forward
    again. The net result: The bird gets a series of fixed snapshot
    images, rather than a long, continuous blurry one. (A twirling
    ballerina uses a similar strategy, keeping her head aimed at a
    fixed point as long as possible while her body rotates.)

    Back in the late seventies, Barrie J. Frost, a visual neuro-
    scientist at Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, put pigeons
    on a tiny treadmill. They walked, but they didn't move relative
    to their environment, and they stopped bobbing - scientific
    proof, in case you needed any, that if you're going to get
    anywhere, you have to stick your neck out.

    My computer is halfway to broken and is well past seriously damaged.

    MIA rubber feet.

    Slight discoloration in lower right hand corner of LCD.

    Dent in right back corner from falling 3 feet.

    Missing J key.

    Battery in pieces after failed attempt to fix it.

    The combo CPU/general cooling fan broken. Itís currently being cooled by a clever combination of empty expansion bays, half-off keyboard, and a desk fan.

    It has a 6GB HD and 16MB of vRAM.

    nuff said.

    EDIT: Okay, I'll freely admit this was a stupid post.
    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?

    Swaziland is a very small country located in the middle of Africa, about 39% of the countrys 1.1 million inhabitants is HIV/AIDS infected. The country area is only 17,200 sq km (6,641 sq miles).

    The 36 year old King Mswati III sometimes visit schools were he orders his men to abduct young virgin schoolgirls to add to his harem. The king has resisted pressure for greater political plurality and triggered one controversy after another, including the alleged abduction of an 18-year-old schoolgirl, Zena Mahlangu, to be his ninth bride.

    The sub-saharan Africa's last absolute monarch has reportedly asked his government for £8 million to redecorate three royal palaces and build 11 new ones - a big sum for a tiny country reeling from drought, food shortages and HIV/Aids.

    If the projects go ahead it will be a comeback of sorts for a king who was unexpectedly forced by protests last year to abandon plans to buy a £24 million executive jet plane.

    He recently bought a fleet of BMWs costing £800,000 for his relatives.

    Despite all of this he still remains popular with many Swazis, however, who see him as a virile father-figure. His late father, King Sobhuza II, amassed 99 wives and sired more than 200 children.
