Don't Try This at Home

9:50 AM -- The 2007 Darwin Awards race has a new front-runner, to judge from this LA Times story:

    A man who authorities say appeared to be driving while using his laptop computer died Monday when his car crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Hummer.

    California Highway Patrol officers found the victim's computer still running and plugged into the cigarette lighter of his 1991 Honda Accord.
Wow. It was still running, post-Hummer. What's the crash-test rating on your laptop?

re: Don't Try This at Home Haven't you seen the obesity rate in children? We already are growing very large. Maybe we can blame that on the environment.

re: Don't Try This at Home But first we'll grow very large.

re: Don't Try This at Home "8) Almost no global warming advocates seem to know that the core of the Earth is hotter than the surface of the sun and that it is cooling. And that even the worse case scenarios of global warming never result in a world that is hotter or has more atmospheric carbon than the days of the dinosaur."
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
sorry

Blame it on calories intake more than calories expended. It's that simple. Doesn't solve the problem though. The following may be more helpful to anybody trying to address the issue.

re: Don't Try This at Home Larry- I sure hope your not driving when you read this. Maybe you should pull over...

The hyperbole of the Global Warming protagonaists includes the claim that human carbon activity will make the planet uninhabitable.

Even those of you with limited scientific understanding are able to comprehend that Earth was actaully inhabitable during the time of the dinosaur.

The dinosaurs were wiped out by an an extra-terrestrial event: an asteroid.

Aren't you all glad to know that when (not if) we are threatened by a future asteriod,it will in large part be man's pursuit of war that will have given us the tools to prevent the next extra-terrestrial cateclismic event from wiping out most higher life forms on the Earth?

Remember, it is always better to swerve to the right.

"You spin me right round baby right round, like a record baby, right round, right round."

Donald Rumsfeld has a tear welling up in him right now. I don't think even Carl Rove could have come up with any better spin to justify man's persuit of war.

Shoot if we keep going at the pace we are, we won't have to worry about carbon credits or even asteroid.

I think the biggest problem people are going to have with Global Warming and the associated sea level rise is the loss of their precious Left Coast. It changes the face of the earth. We adjust.

Hey according to Anthony Robbins, change is good! Embrace Change!! :-D

Cheers

re: Don't Try This at Home 12) What system should we use to get to choose who the carbon pigs get to be?

Let's leave it to the free market, shall we?
