It's not as black and white as an article found somewhere on the internet makes it seem. You just have to meet the right people who are in the same boat and share similar interests. While this is far less easy when you get older, it is not completely impossible either. The thing is, it may not be w...

I said MP3 because the 1st digital audio players could be CD players! Sure Sony didn't play MP3s (they ran ATRAC3) in their 1st lines of solid state music players from 1999--2002-ish but they at least supported the format in that their software was able to import MP3s.

:-P Just keeping the trend going. My predictions: Population will drop to 1 billion (10^9) or less & those people will still be cleaning up the mess their ancestors (us and our ancestors) brought about by wreaking the planet out of pure greed & selfishness. A resource-based economy will be t...

I recently bought an old Rio 600 on eBay & after hours of playing with VirtualBox, Windows 98 SE, Real Jukebox, & the player itself I managed to clear it of its music & loaded 5 tracks onto the 32-MiB (MiB is the proper way to write the binary megabytes computers use) player, taking up a...

You should take a look at the cellphone watches! They pack all the feature of a cellphone in a watch sized device. It has a tiny touch screen and will also play mp3s and videos. The big downfall of alot of them is the pathetic battery life.......like 1-2 hours. I'm sure they'll improve as technolog...

How many of you have fond memories of owning these cool timepieces back in the yesteryears & even in recent times? In yet another bout of nostalgia, I recently bought two Casio units: a used EDB-610 e-data bank w/ world time, calendar to 2039, 300-page telememo, & passcode; & a new silve...

For me, the back pay is 2K every 6 months till it's all paid (not much time left now). Also, my re-evaluation could come between 3 & 7 years, they said. The main reason for the winning the case was my AS & depression, with vision taking a back seat. Is 3 to 7 years really for permanently dis...

I'm too insecure for polyamory. insecurity can manifest it self in many ways, i've always found it intresting. I personally don't believe I can handle a multi-party romantic relationship involving a girl & another man besides myself without being very insecure about it & feeling inadequate ...

Yeah, it's a strange convention. I know my sister has winter proms and that already seems weird to me. I'm glad German schools don't have proms. Except for the final prom, which I happily decided not to attend. My mother thought it was weird, but I didn't care much about her opinion on this, even t...

I will not believe that gays and lesbians have equal rights until there area few same-sex couples at every high school prom. At that point we'll have made true progress.

I agree. I wonder if any other countries outside the USA are further ahead on this or not.

Do I care about the details of everyone elses' personal lives, politics, mental health diagnoses, etc? No, no I do not. I love it when people are able to have an identity seperate from these things, and that is why I return the favor by limiting the amount of information that I share about myself. ...

I'm taking this as an either/or: either die as a virgin or die a non-virgin but with AIDS. I find this question a bit weird because one can get AIDS (OK, HIV which can start AIDS) by not having sex too! If we're assuming sexual activity is the way AIDS is um, acquired, here's why I'm picking the lat...

An interesting intellectual experiment you might want to try is to start observing how often you see people being openly, flagrantly (hetero)sexual. --Politicians do it all the time--"Look at me at my loving spouse of the opposite gender and the offspring resulting from our heterosexual intercourse...

How far away are you willing to move? Because I'd highly recommend Amsterdam, also known as the gay capital of Europe :) The Netherlands were the first country to legalize gay marriage in 2001, the first to decriminalize homosexuality in 1811 (! !!), and Amsterdam probably had the world's first gay...
