but those statistics are skewed. as you point out with the bermuda comment. I mean, all european countries are ridiculously smaller than the united states. so, for all of us who have the fastest public internet available in the united states (like me) in a town of 120k, there are millions of people living in the sticks still using dial up (no offense, jeff, lol) or without even an internet computer, or any computer of any kind. granted, there are some people in europe who have better broadband, but i'd say population wise, those numbers are really skewed. you live in the middle of nowhere, like my mom, and she just got broadband last year after i repeatedly told her that her rural cable company was costing her more than getting direct tv or at&t tv that would give her broadband internet. she was using dial up until last year. and companies like aol still abuse customers with yearly fees by convincing them they can't even get online without them. my mom just learned the other day that she could just hit explorer to get online on her laptop without going through aol. american numbers are skewed opposed to other (especially european) countries' broadband access because we have more rural areas, have a larger population living in rural areas and have a larger, poor population living in urban areas than they do.

jeff...do you know how BEHIND most of europe is on the Internet front? it's ridiculous. a lot of countries still use home phonelines to connect, and it costs PER MINUTE when they're on the net. these are the same countries that had cell phones used as home phones 10 years before we did. europe is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy behind the us in computer and internet tech....but east asia is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy ahead

well, I do believe the internet needs to have some sort of government agency monitoring it...i just think there are too many things that are available that shouldn't be, and i'm saying this as someone who hasn't paid for a song in 12 years, lol (except for pearl jam albums...only group i'll actually pay for a cd). i know that the net is kind of the last bastion of total freedom for a lot of people, but i also know that it's a haven for a lot of illegal activity, and not just "dude, you have the weed for tonight?" messages... much more sinister stuff....the net is to us now what radio was back in the 10s and 20s...it was freedom..you could say what you want whenever you want. that's good, but it also has its drawbacks. only thing i'm afraid of is that the govt. would use "some control" to mean "total control" but still, really, can they keep you from expressing yourself on the net now that it's out there? no

wow, is it wrong for me to root for this ticket? i think it'd be the best thing ever for rational human beings! we can all get together in "not crazy" circles on college campuses! we can make "weird" art with their pictures next to soup cans and tell jokes about how obviously femin-itastic! they are! they obviously speak for the majority! i mean, the majority is friggin' nuts, right?

when i was in tucson in 2005, we had the monsoons, and the afternoon was like 118...which i thought would kill me when i saw the temp...but, really, i was walking all over town like it was nothing...it really felt like 80 or 85...guess i'm used to ok humidity, i mean, i was wearing a shirt and a polo shirt on top of it in tucson...and i had to walk EVERYWHERE, that heat never bothered me, other than give me like, an immediate sunburn

hopefully, and i say this as a former republican who went independent in 2003, this will be just the first of many who are upset the RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT WINGERS are in charge, and they only want THEIR KIND....It's a really messed up party right now. You apparently can't be for prayer in schools AND for gay marriage! Ye Gods! That's blasphemy that is in no way actually supported by Biblical decree! But it's somehow blasphemy! Ahhh! We're all gonna die! Oh, and global warming doesn't exist, which may actually kill us all.
