"Inteligent" you say? ;)

It's all about averages, and this would be a fine example of Darwinism.

like most hypes, we'll find another thing to obsess about sooner or later




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

turnin: Safer to use a mirror

Real-time too.  No delay.

Sometimes older technology is just better.





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

only an idiot does not make sure the weapon is not loaded first but as Forest Gumps mum loves to say "Stupid is as Stupid does" 

Personally I think all warning labels should be removed and just let nature sort itself out
