One employee said, "I look at these people's faces and I keep thinking one of them could have stepped on him. How could you take a man's life to save $20 on a ...

  • The Parable of the Ant and the 2008 Election

    Normally whenever I get a chain letter, I immediately delete it, but I'm actually posting this one on the forums because of how good and relevant it is. It makes an extremely good point about the policies that could come into play after the 2008 Election. "OLD VERSION:  The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, ...

  • Scotland Plans Tidal Energy Farms

    A new renewable energy project has been planned for Scotland to employ a series of tidal energy turbines. The 98 foot tall turbines will be immersed 30 feet below the surface of the ocean in areas with strong tidal currents.

  • re: Shark Tale

    That's amazing! I bet that shark will think twice before he tries to eat another little dog. And I have to hand it to that guy, it takes a truly devoted and slightly foolhearty owner to get into a fist fight with a shark. I wonder if the guy is related to Chuck Norris.

  • re: Elect Sam Post

    I completely agree, Sam. Politics in general is doing a great job of robbing our country of any chance for a good, honest leader.  We have democracy. We have the freedom to choose our leaders.

It seems anyone in medicine can charge whatever they feel like and people will pay it simply because they feel like they have to.
