    Oh, don't worry. I'm well aware of the answer. I just didn't want to burst his bubble too badly.

    I really hope those aren't my only two options. Right now I'm in web development. At home I'm the IT Networker though.

    I'm going to take a wild stab at this one and suggest that it's because your mouth doesn't even have the volume to hold 500ml. Ergo, it's not possible to gulp that much anyway.

    This is an interesting observation. I prefer thinking of it as imparting wisdom to the masses. But I think fortune cookie writer applies best.

    This is identical to the "there might be was in the Middle East". Look around you, man!

    As to the winner, my bet is on Linux.

    Because of the state the substance is in. If you were to take that fluid and make it a manageable solid, then you could chew it back down to near-liquid consistency and consume it easily.

    Or, if is was a gas, you could consume it much more easially, much like sucking air in for burping. Then again, after doing so you'd probably burp it right back out.

    Is 002 a number?

    If so, should the government ban smoking?

    002 is most definitely a number, .NET considered or not (and I prefer the latter).

    The government should defend us from people who are destroying our liberties. If the government bans smoking then it destroying our liberties and should attack itself.

    Note that an anarchist society is only theoretically possible. There are some things we should not have the liberty to do (murder, etc)

    Because he thought the road would back down and give in. So he attempted a little extortion - haven't we all? Let's just assume Western-style justice: innocent until proven guilty, not the old Napoleon method.
