    DO YOU HATE NICKELBACK?

    True, I could just as easily say all Beethoven sounds the same.

    Can you enjoy lossy (compressed) music through your favorite headphones?

    Yea, I even had one of those crystal radio sets when I was a kid and thought it was great. I had my Dad build it for me though because I was too lazy to do it myself.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup is making Americans hefty

    And so have I, and what I say is fact. He may use bigger words than me but that doesn't make him smarter. That's just a ruse to make you think he is smarter than he really is. Common tactic of the pseudo elite.

    Holland / France trip with my family

    When I was in Amsterdam in '85 I found myself in the middle of a demonstration about the Pope visiting Holland and they even burned an effigy of him so I do know Catholicism is not popular there but should do some research on it so will soon.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup is making Americans hefty

    All science is pseudo until proven to be fact. You remind me of the time I went into a cooking group on Usenet and asked how long it is safe to leave food out at room temp after it has been cooked. I already knew the answer but only one person in that group knew the answer and he got flamed for...

    Blu-ray movie discussion thread (pics added - page 1 & 7)

    Yes, but many people watch TV in daylight and night time so which do you calibrate for? Two totally different kinds of light that affect the image on the screen greatly. I keep my room dim at all times because bright daylight annoys me for some reason so is not such an issue. I don't know...

    living in Canada

    That's because you were way in a more remote area. In Toronto milk is cheap but not as cheap as U.S. I've been to Ottawa a number of times and it is a nice city. I like Quebec city too because it is Euro in style, the center is anyway. None are as scenic as Vancouver though.

    Farrah Fawcett dies at 62

    My mum died less than 2 years ago from cancer too at age 65 so seeing Farah go the same way really hits home. RIP Farrah.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup is making Americans hefty

    I know a bit about free radicals and that's what some superfoods are supposed to counteract but there is no scientific evidence proving it so it is mostly conjecture. Eating superfoods is still a wise choice though as they are densely packed with nutrients and are low in calories. Just don't...
