Whoops I missed a month just then. So lets pretended this is November.
What happened in November, well I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts for one.
Anything else? Jeez, it is hard up here in the saddle since the horse died.
Well ok then how 'bout a 1.7 Gh celeron, 40gigabyte HD, cd, fd, 256 MB ram, winXP home, MSoffice XP. All for only 800 bucks! Well once we get it we scrap the MS things and put Linux on it instead, that may cost us $200 more ('cause we want the boxed set). Other things would be good.

Matter Converter - scans what is in it, puts the scan into memory. Can then make identical copies of original using basic materials.
Transporter - works on same principle as above except it then transmits the scan to another machine which re-asembles it at the other end. First, of course the original is destroyed.
Questions - what if people where scanned then not destroyed? Multiple copies (at least from moment of scan) would be running around claiming to be the original (to all extents and purposes they probably would be). So then, what are their legal rights and responsibilities?

Did you know that flipping a coin three hundred and ten times it came up one hundred and fifty eight for heads and one hundred and fifty two for tails. The coin did admittedly have a slight bump on one side the head side in-fact. Should I say it had been pushed on the tail side so that there wasn't a (compared to what it was before) flat surface. If you want to know it was a penny coin. Don't know what year. And no I didn't do it all in one sitting. About 10 a night. Get over it.

That The Security Council permanent members be changed to include at least one from each continent (excluding Antarctica) and that the permanent members lose their veto. With appropriate changes made to the charter.
Why -
1956 - USSR invaded Hungry
1968 - USSR invaded Czechoslovakia
etc and not just the USSR Lets go one USA invaded Panama (then part of Columbia) and lots of other Caribbean countries and South American or at least sponsor revolutions which became dictatorships. Remember Chile 11-9-197? After WW2 Europe was divided between the USSR and the USA. Another reason that nobody interfered with each other.

Guantanamo Bay is located at the southeastern end of Cuba. It contains a United States naval base (116km2), which was established in 1898 when the US obtained control of Cuba from Spain at the end of the Spanish-American War. The US government obtained a permanent lease for the base in 1903 from the newly independent Cuban state. It is still occupied by the US. Even though the United States pays about four thousand dollars of rent to the Cuban government each year, the Cuban government never cashes the treasury check because it views the base as illegitimate. Which it is.

"The world will little note nor long remember the inhabitants of the Pacific Island nation of Tuvalu. But these 11,000 people, who live on nine coral atolls a few hundred miles northwest of American Samoa, have earned a distinction, however dubious. They may comprise the first country to pay the ultimate price for a changing climate: national extinction. Rising sea levels are gradually inundating Tuvalu.

Article VII. To enable the United States to maintain the independence of Cuba, and to protect the people thereof, as well as for its own defense, the Government of Cuba will sell or lease to the United States lands necessary for coaling or naval stations, at certain specified points, to be agreed upon with the President of the United States.
From the Platt Amendment introduced into the Cuban Constitution in 1903. Notice how the US constantly breaks this. For the use of this illegal base the US pays aprox.$4000 to the Cuban Gov, which they (the Gov) refuse to cash.

But in maintaining armed men there in place of colonies one spends much more, having to consume on the garrison all income from the state, so that the acquisition turns into a loss, and many more are exasperated, because the whole state is injured; through the shifting of the garrison up and down all become acquainted with hardship, and all become hostile, and they are enemies who, whilst beaten on their own ground, are yet able to do hurt. For every reason, therefore, such guards are as useless as a colony is useful.

In Welsh myth, the goddess Ceridwen owned a great cauldron that would magically produce nourishing food -- when commanded by a spell known only to the goddess. In modern science, Buckminster Fuller gave us the concept of `ephemeralization', technology becoming both more effective and less expensive as the physical resources invested in early designs are replaced by more and more information content. Arthur C. Clarke connected the two by observing that ``Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic''.

TODAY it seems to me providential that Fate should have chosen Braunau-on-the-Inn as my birthplace. For this little town lies on the boundary between two German states which we of the younger generation at least have made it our life work to reunite by every means at our disposal. German-Austria must return to the great German mother country, and not because of any economic considerations. No, and again no: even if such a union were unimportant from an economic point of view; yes, even if it were harmful, it must nevertheless take place. From 'Mein Kampf" by Adolf Hitler p1923

Lemma: All horses are the same color.
Proof (by induction):
Case n = 1: In a set with one horse, it is obvious that all horses in that set are the same colour.
Case n = k: Suppose you have a set of k+1 horses. Pull one of these horses out of the set, so that you have k horses. Suppose that all of these horses are the same colour. Now put back the horse that you took out, and pull out a different one. Suppose that all of the k horses now in the set are the same colour.
12/16 Direct Link
Then the set of k+1 horses are all the same colour. We have k true => k+1 true; therefore all horses are the same colour.

Theorem: All horses have an infinite number of legs.
Proof (by intimidation): Everyone would agree that all horses have an even number of legs. It is also well known that horses have forelegs in front and two legs in back. 4 + 2 = 6 legs, which is certainly an odd number of legs for a horse to have! Now the only number that is both even and odd is infinity; therefore all horses have
12/17 Direct Link
an infinite number of legs. However, suppose that there is a horse somewhere that does not have an infinite number of legs. Well, that would be a horse of a different colour; and by the Lemma, it doesn't exist.

Even if this is meant to be funny, (which I think it is,) I will point out the flaws I can see. First, one has to assume that k horses are all one colour and show it. Then using the k it is put into k+1, to show that k+1=k+1. The second part the flaws should be obvious to see. OK
