State Constitutions

I just found out that some states may have had more than one Constitution. I'm not sure why this surprises me, but I guess I also figured that if a constitution needed to be changed, it could always be amended. But, now that I think about it, the U.S. went from the Articles of Confederation to the U.S. Constitution, so it shouldn't be that surprising.

It does show that you can learn something new every day.

The Next Version of Windows?

I haven't been hearing nice things about Windows Vista. It's a resource hog and doesn't work as well XP, and why would anyone want to upgrade to something that is not as good as what we already have? Not to mention (unless this has changed), Vista was requiring an "always-on" internet connection to validate your use of it. If you have to leave your TV on all the time, then it would be just like George Orwell's 1984.

It seems that some companies are trying to entice companies to try something else. IBM, Red Hat, Novell, and Canonical are working together to come up with a Microsoft-free package that will be less expensive than Vista.

Love...Is a Wonderful Thing....

Everyone has seen shows and heard about how being in love makes you feel. Sure, when you're a kid and life is big and confusing and emotions are new and confusing and the world is so unfair and confusing and you're just confused and don't know what to do or how you feel or-


It seems that in order to be truly safe, if you are experiencing the symptoms of "love", you better head on over to your doctor (or the free clinic), and get yourself checked. That's right, it might not be love at all, but one of ten diseases which could be mistaken for love.
