LG Launches Watch Phone In India
Re: The purpose of owning a Rolex is to make a statement: "I am better than you because I have so much money that I can spend thousands of dollars on a watch that doesn't tell time any better than a $25 Timex".
Oh, that's probably the intent, but the REAL statement is usually "I have a higher credit card balance than you, because I spend thousands of dollars on a watch."
Obama Choosing NOT To Go To the Moon
Why would any country WANT to say goodbye permanently to a **tax-paying** citizen, before they're even dead? Keep the citizenry right here, under their thumb, paying taxes, working like oxen, til we drop dead. Colony on Mars? Less control.

At first I was going to vote for the "childish things" option - but then I realized we ALL have toys, whether they are Tonka trucks, guitars, motorcycles or a mallet for playing polo on horseback.

New Service Maps Speed Traps By Cell Phone
Karma be damned...
Near my house is a section of roadway (a divided 4-lane) where the limit inexplicably drops from 55mph to 35mph for a half mile. Mind you, there are no curves, intersecting roads or any other "dangers." Guess where the cops set up to bust "speeders"?
There are those who simply don't happily comply with arbitrary rules when there is no logical reason for the rule, and I'm one of those people. If I'm rolling to a stop sign and can clearly see no oncoming cars (or the police), I'm going to roll right through. Why should I come to a stop? Because I feel like I'm doing my part to conform? Because I'm being told to do so? Because I'm only capable of checking for oncoming traffic at 0mph, rather than 3? I'm sure if the limit went from 55mph to 15 for no reason, there is a segment of the population who will gladly slow down to 15 with a smile on their face, simply because they are commanded to do so. Others, who prefer to think for themselves, check for cops and keep going.
Needless to say, speed traps have nothing to do with safety and everything to do with income.
