Why Are Indian Kids So Good At Spelling?
I am puertorican, and in Puerto Rico many people want their kids grow to be famous baseball players or basketball, etc. I was in little league and apparently I was pretty good. But after some years I lost complete interest. Right now I am about to graduate from my Computer Science degree, with a really good job offer and I have during my academic career achieved a lot of really good things. But my grandmother is always saying how good of a baseball player I could have been and how many millions of dollars I could have made, all of this despite all of my success.
So definitely things like this do depend a lot in the culture, some are focused on academic success, others in sports, etc. As someone said earlier, it is all about life perspective.

NSF Gives Supercomputer Time For 3-D Model of Spill
What sort of model is this? A particle tracking model such as ROMS? As far as I know these models aren't sooo computer intensive, but I imagine its probably dealing with a huge dataset and probably long term forecasting? If anyone has any answers I would be glad to see them.

Does Microsoft Finally Have a Phone Worth Buying?
From another article I found on the web "Another shocking news for Windows lover is that Windows Mobile 7 also won’t support multi-tasking." (http://www.latestngadgets.com/flash-rejected-by-windows-mobile-7/2635.html)
Police Swarm Bungie Office Over Halo Replica Rifle
The times we live on, everyone seems to be afraid of the guy next door. Can't we all just effin relax and not be paranoid? It is obvious that the person who called the cops was completely paranoid, AK-47? That thing is not even close to resemble an AK47.
But I definitely agree that these guys carrying the model should have covered it not to make people react like this guy. Hopefully it is a lesson learned.
