Would Scottish Independence Mean the End of UK's Nuclear Arsenal?

idanity who gets the nukes then? (375 comments)

Are they selling them, or are they going to fire them off into space? seems to me that they would be best kept where they are, and the U.K. can still maintain them.

idanity Eadle eyes (550 comments)

I'm waiting for Eagles eyes to be properly cloned for humans. when that happens, i will switch out my bad eyes for some eagle ones... should take a few more weeks or months (sarcasm, since we have to state when we're doing it now, but it should be within a few years to be able to completely create a new eye from our own DNA).

Belief In Hell Predicts a Country's Crime Rates Better Than Other Factors

idanity contradictory (471 comments)

the quote 'in societies where many people believe in hell compared to those where more people believed in heaven." is contradictory. in what religeon(s) do they preach in only one or the other ? afaik, if you believe in one, you have to also believe in the other. as in, 'if you don't make it to heaven, where do you go " its sad that people don't realise there is a way to build a heaven on earth, and it only takes honorable measures to acheive it. not greed.

Toyota Demands Removal of Fan Wallpapers

idanity thank you- no more advertisements too..right (594 comments)

this would also include all those "car" popups that infringe on my web viewing. i would like my time wasted by closing popups with monetary benefit, and this may also help lead the way for the rights of peoples veiwing act (circa 2009 by me) to get paid for viewing garbage adds.
