A useful internet tool for people who wish to send large ( up to 1 gig) e-mail attachments.

It's called Pando and it really works and it's really free.

Works great. You did a good job of commercial editing Min. Each one has been only 20 minutes.

The smaller the better for transmission purposes. Besides, why would you ever want to see those commercials?

“A basic assumption that scientists make is that the speed of light limits travel.”

But if it is possible to go faster the means will never be found by someone who does not believe in the possibility.

World Hunger Ends!!!!!

Post by MichelleH » Thu Nov 16, 2006 8:19 pm

(I really could not believe this was on the news this evening)

It was all in the minds of the hungry. They weren't hungry they just suffered from very low food security.
Last year, families without enough money to buy food or families in which parents skip meals so their children can eat were labeled as having "food insecurity with hunger" and now they simply have "very low food security."

Remember when Ed Meese declared ketchup a "vegetable" for the purposes of the School Lunch program, Michelle?

very low food security.
Ho. Ho. There's a great reading-on-the-toilet kind of book called 'The Official Politically Correct Dictionary & Handbook' by Henry Beard and Christopher Cerf (Harper Collins) which is full of this kind of thing. The sad fact of it is I don't think they actually made any of it up. My favourite entry is Charles Manson listed as a person with difficult-to-meet needs.

I thought "low food security" was what causes poor people to overeat, thus the disproportionate obesity among the "financially challenged." :cry:
