What a stupid question. For every tree cut down plant at least 2 new ones. That should solve this debate.

As if any of you would want to be royalty (at least not as the #1 or #2 in succession) who are constantly watched, scrutinized and pretty much work everyday till they drop dead. Sure, they might be wealthy, but they have no control over it. I bet the amount of paperwork to purchase a new car is insane.

Nobody listens to the same single 100 times let alone 1,500 time. The calculations for a stream x 100 = 1 single doesn't make sense. Why not just say how many streams, downloads and purchases of each song and the reader can decide what each figure is worth to them.

Of course it can and will be done, but depends on what you define time travel as. If travelling to the future is all you want to do then that can be done with relative ease and in the same space time continuum. Going back in time is a bit more tricky and would require an anchor point today to get back to today in the future. Other types of time travel may result in different paradoxes, so probably not what one would like time travel to be.

200kg is nothing, that's like 7-8 large boxes you use when moving house. Paper is heavy!!

sounds like he's just looking for something to get out of life. Many people do stupid things to a higher degree with no purpose. i.e BASE jumping or trying to beat some insane record like deep diving... Not crazy, just depressed would be a better description.

I thought the first thing people did after buying an iPhone was to purchase a rigid case to go with it and a good number of people will also buy a screen cover.

Morning sickness is an illness? really? Isn't it a symptom of a hormonal change or balance? That would make periods an illness and probably hangovers.... Is growing pains an illness or perhaps cramps when you run? Dizziness from sitting down too long or pins and needles? Hmmm

sounds like something a rich nut would do in the Middle Ages. Regardless of the legalities, his motives are just stupid. It would be far easier and cheaper to pay people off. Plus there are no guarantee that his kids would vote for this sicko dad. Just imagine the paperwork if he had 600 kids. The names, the lawyers, the tax, the daddy phone calls, education, inheritance, etc.....

nope, things have finally caught up to my expectations, but still a long way to go. When I can create a computer program by just telling the computer to create the program via voice commands then things will be where it should be.

depends on how you categorize safe. If it includes petty theft, rape, cyber crime, bullying, harassment, child abuse, public transport accidents and going further into natural causes like earthquakes, floods and typhoons then I would have to say it is not any safer than 10 years ago. Additionally, more people means more problems, so China & India are not having a particularly good time.

and had he been more careful and a little smarter she could have become another 10 year victim of this kind of crime which seems to be rampant in all corners of the planet. Thank god he was a dumb idiot!!

I had a full 45 sec warning on my "The Last 10-Second" app. http://weathernews.jp/quake/html/urgentquake.html
If you add another app it will speak out the location, size, time to impact and if it is worthy of a tsunami warning.
