  1. Oh sure, post a survey that only a handful of elitests like you can answer… What about the common man who doesn’t have his/her own blog?

    I was thinking of starting my own blog, but what would I possibly fill it with…more news junky drivel and my own personal opinion on every piece of trash that happens in the world? I doubt anyone’s gonna read that. I think a lucid, poetic, creative writing outlet would be more enjoyable… Laura, would you be my muse?

    Hey . . . hey! Your thinly disguised critique will not dissuade me. I shall blog on.

  3. lol!

    Trust me, it wasn’t a critique 😉 I rather enjoy your site…

    Its just that everybody’s doing it, so I was thinking I’d need something a bit different…more interesting, unique. Something exquisitely enchanting, allowing my creativity to flow and to give the reader a delightful romp through the deranged meanderings of my truly warped mind (wait..I think your rubbing off on me)…. Besides, you ignored the most important part of the post… 🙂

  4. Laura, I don’t know how to send info to you, but I thought everyone might find this article interesting: http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7616

  5. So when are we gonna see flying cars and robot slaves to do our bidding?! I’ve been waiting for that since before I was born! Ooh…and nanotechnology that can turn air into an orange? That’d be swell! And fuel cells…and cold fusion…and the easter bunny…and the toothfairy…

    See, Dave, they haven’t tapped my brain yet 😀

    On a serious note, alot of people think that by homogenizing information together into one place, it will hamper innovation. Of course, maybe we’re expanding the universe with our one consciousness. Or just maybe, it doesn’t really matter because we’ll get so lazy that we won’t care whether or not we can innovate anymore…in fact, we’ll get too lazy to care about being too lazy!

    Oh wait, that’s what mom’s are for. Thank God for women…

    And you thought I couldn’t get any weirder!
