Re: FDA approval

Since the LifeStraw is not intended for countries with potable water distribution systems (eg. United States) FDA approval is irrelevant to its distribution in the Third World. Distribution here has already begun : http://www.gizmag.com/lifestraw-personal-water-purification-device/8442/ Sounds like...

I recommend a boycott of the program. Wouldn't want to become addicted to watching snakes.

If ever I write my own "meaning of life" it will probably have less about seeking pleasure or seeking enlightenment and more about spreading happiness. And the question may now become "what is "happiness" and how does one spread happiness, all the while living in the moment? Why do we tend to amass...

Re: movie: 3:10 to Yuma

However, in the 2007 version, [spoiler]why did Russell Crow's character get on the train in the end? Couldn't he just have walked away? And why didn't he just leave when they were in hostile Indian territory? He could have walked away then too, couldn't he?[/spoiler] Assuming you're serious about t...

..... and 3:10 to Yuma

Hmm, I liked the Bourne Ultimatum. Last night we watched the Bourne Supremacy -- I confess it is bit more interesting than either the first or third ones. But the film we really appreciated this weekend was 3:10 to Yuma[spoiler] -- a classic western with lots of chasing around. It's also a very inte...

I wonder if it's actually fear of lawsuits. There are plenty of things that are still completely fine after the expiry date has passed. I have absolutely no doubt that it's fear of lawsuits. I also expect the manufacturer would get off scott free if you died from years-old pumpkin from a bulging tin.

Terror in the name of Islam is being committed not only in London, Madrid and New York, but also in Egypt, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Terror is giving a bad name to otherwise legitimate resistance in Iraq and Palestine. Such terror is our own problem first and foremost. It is not up to the West to c...

Re: Unspeakable Tragedy

I am having a terrible time trying to deal with the mass deaths in Asia; how are forum members coping? Yes, it's really wrenching. I am thankful that so far I have not heard any news of people I know who have been personally affected. Perhaps you are feeling much the way I felt when hearing about t...
