Several of the protesters stated that they fear for the the health of their families and that they refuse to live near wind turbines. Others fear that the value of their property will be reduced significantly by the presence of turbines. With the cost of gas and oil on its way up it's a wonder that any one would be against the use of renewable energy sources." Link to Original Source top

They can also land on inverted surfaces and lift heavy loads as a group." Link to Original Source top

But it seems to me that they have thrown the baby out with the bath water because it is now also a $500 fine to change your radio station, change songs on your MP3 player or even drink your morning coffee. It can also be enforced to the point where changing the climate controls on your dash can get you fined because it requires you to take your hands off the wheel. Though this was a good idea it seems to have been taken a little to far." Link to Original Source

Even with all the new, better, programming languages I still find myself messing around in Q Basic. Like the name says its Quick and Basic, like using an etch-a-scetch insted of photoshop, it still is intruiging. I find that if I can do it in QB I can do it in any other launguage.
Just a thought.
