Nice, Bob    :D

A rabbit would be in grave danger on my property. As an example, back in Feb when my cat was still less than one year old, it brought me a present one day ... a full grown fox squirrel! Dead, of course.

1907 - One hundred years ago         

The year is 1907.  One hundred years ago.  What a difference a century makes!
Here are some statistics for the Year 1907 :
The average life expectancy was 47 years.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower!

The average wage in 1907 was 22 cents per hour.

The average worker made between $200 and $400 per year .

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME .

Ninety percent of all doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!  Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard.'

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

Five leading causes of death were:
1. Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke

The American flag had 45 stars.

The population of Las Vegas, Nevada, was only 30!!!!

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and ice tea hadn't been invented yet.

There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.

Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said, 'Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health.' ( Shocking? DUH! )

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE ! U.S.A. !

Now I present this list to you (received from someone else) without typing it myself, and give it to you and others all over the United States,  Canada and the world in a matter of seconds!

Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.
IT STAGGERS THE MIND, EH ?

Wal-Mart Introduces “Bloat-Free” Budget Computer
Bloat-free seems to be a new trend these days, first with Dell offering an option to opt-out of some of the unnecessary “stuff” and now with Wal-Mart’s new budget computer. With back-to-school shopping season just around the corner, Wal-Mart’s decision to sell a PC for under $300 is simply smart.
Yep, that’s right, a computer for under $300. Of course this isn’t for the intensive user, it’s for the user who just needs a computer for word-processing, Internet access, and email. In other-words, this is one of the most affordable, basic options for a student.
The bloat-free computer is an Everex IMPACT GC3502 that will come with Windows Vista Home Basic installed, as well as OpenOffice.org version 2.2. I can’t think of a better way to introduce open source software than to put OpenOffice.org on a computer geared towards students.
Eugene Chang, Everex product manager said, “In creating the eco-friendly GC3602, our main focus was to build a no-compromise, back-to-school PC with all the software applications a typical student would require, without resorting to bundling frivolous trial versions or increasing prices 30 percent.”
Specs:

1.5 GHz VIA C7 CPU
1 GB of DDR-2 SD RAM
80 GB hard drive
DVD burner
I just checked Wal-Mart’s website, and the computer isn’t available quite yet, but it will be shortly

3D Mailbox: So bad it's...bad....this is one for you tednelly ;D
It's hard to know where to start when trying to describe the new free email client 3D Mailbox. Even after finding ourselves slack-jawed at the website and the video of this software in action, we still wanted to reserve final judgment until we'd actually had a chance to get under the hood and check it out for ourselves. Although we were never able to actually get the software to work, despite trying it on four different PCs, it's probably just as well because what little time we did spend with 3D Mailbox had us reaching for our antacids faster than you can say, "Who thought this up

Heya guys, didn't know where to put this post, but I think this topic suits it well:

Quote
Code: [Select]
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Your-Sleeping-Position-Betrays-Your-Personality-60016.shtml

The link is on a Softpedia news article on that the positions people take while sleeping may reflect on their personality.

Me, I sleep in a mix of the "yearner" position and the "freefall" position. I was surprised on that it does seem very close to being correct to me ...

EDIT-
Well, now that I really think of it, it seems that I am more closer to the yearner position than the log, and I still sleep in freefall, so I'll edit that.
