History  - 
 
I maintain that one of the great historical moments in rock music is the transition segment of Eric Clapton's cover of "Cocaine" by JJ Cale.  How can anyone disagree?

Clapton teases the audience with a long, slow tempo introduction.  The transition occurs at 01:19 and the driving beat takes over the song.

Very creative, intoxicating, and addictive.

I have a question about blocking:  Does blocking someone somehow make it harder for them to hack your account or computer?

throwing threats and insults around-that is not  what Islam has teaches.
islam about is about NOT telling lies .
urging children to be suicide bombers.
your behaviour is an insult to 'allah'
and to islam..
and that is a grave sin.
repent of your sins.
seek redemption.
before it is too late

I think Bowe Bergdahl should be put on trial for desertion if evidence indicates he deserted his unit.  What are your thoughts?

I agree that if there is evidence to lead to a court-martial then he should be brought before a tribunal.  The evidence needs to be gathered first, and it seems that the evidence is spotty at best.

Use case:  Offline note viewing (Premium feature) is very useful when car shopping.  I view carfax reports, car details, and dealer addresses offline after clipping.

Agreed - I also find it useful for checking what reference colour paint I need,  and exactly what grade headlight bulb I need to match the current one...

+sendagi saleh You are ignorant as a post! The US is the primary nation responsible for modern life based on its scientific developments, discoveries and innovations. MOST of the goods that you use originated in the US. The Chinese steal and copy, while it is the Russians who are broke. China has tremendous fiscal problems.

Here's one of Bill Cosby's rants about youth and education.  I agree with him.

"They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. 
I can't even talk the way these people talk: 
Why you ain't, 
Where you is, 
What he drive, 
Where he stay, 
Where he work, 
Who you be... 
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. 
And then I heard the father talk. 
Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.

People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around. 
The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. 
These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. 
$500 sneakers for what? 
And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. 
Where were you when he was 2?
Where were you when he was 12? 
Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol? 
And where is the father? Or who is his father? 
People putting their clothes on backward: 
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong? 
People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something?

Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body? 
What part of Africa did this come from?? 
We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....

I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid. 
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already! ! ! 
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... And all of them are in jail.

Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. 
We have got to take the neighborhood back. 
People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now. 
We have millionaire football players who cannot read. 
We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job. 
Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us. 
We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
We cannot blame the white people any longer."

~Dr.. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed..D

Introduction
"What do we learn from this?"  The core question asked by Talmudic scholars.

I love to learn and participate in robust discussions, respectful dialogues and debates as tools to that end.  I will change my mind for solid evidence, compelling reasoning, and sound logic.  I'm ranked 53rd out of the jabillion debaters on www.convinceme.net .

Favorite saying:  "The early bird may get the worm, but the 2nd mouse gets the cheese."

Favorite insight:  "If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito."  Dalai Lama

My current hobbies are chess, poker, trivia night, shmoozing at our local senior center and exploring Google+ .
