I love that stuff! Back when I used to do a lot of botany (rather than paper-pushing) I got the hang of reading botanical descriptions in Latin. It's certainly not anything like "normal" Latin since the vocabulary and concepts are so limited. But I did find it intriguing.

In school from jr high onward I took French & Spanish rather than Latin (which was offered), my mistake. When I retire I'm going to study Latin and retake calculus ... again. Last time I took a course in calculus (1994) I was 20 years out of undergrad. I was amazed at how much I had forgotten and also at how much I enjoyed learning it all over again. I'm ready to make another go at it for the pure hell of it all.

A couple of years ago I took a 2 semester intro course in Arabic taught by a Moroccan scholar and author (whose name escapes me). He taught by asking us to translate his poetry into English, all verbal at first. It was a great technique though terribly frustrating until we started learning the alphabet and finally, reading. he loved the sound of the language and wanted to develop an appreciation for it in us. It worked on me. I loved the sound and feel of his poetry, though I understood almost none of it. Like listening to Der Ring des Nibelungen -- damned if I know what they're singing about!

He got a better job elsewhere and moved on. My loss.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

All is safe except for the 27 ounces of whatever that is now jelled together so easily.

So NOTHING was accomplished other than adding an inconvenient Step 1.

I watched an Indian mother who had to do this exact thing to deal with Mother's milk for a trip back to Chennai. 24 3 ounce bottles for the flight.
So the solution is simple, ban all liquids, but then guess what?
Somebody would be here complaining of that treatment.

I'm for all baggage to be checked. I fly lots of segments through out the year
and I feel it would greatly reduce the hassles of flight.
Ban the damn cell phones too.

Kind of hard to get that mother's milk out of checked luggage.

And either you are NOT married or don't care if your wife has her favorite makeup with her [or just buy new at every stop]

And many companies don't let you "check" your corporate computer. Add to that the many times that checked luggage does not follow the flight and what you end up with is people just not flying.

Airlines are already folding due to changes in patterns after all the TSA rules. Add rules, more of the same. But if you have to travel for business, the last thing you need is to "check" your work, or your work cloths and have it not arrive when you need them.

If you fly lots of segments, do you check you luggage at every flight? How many times have you had your luggage rerouted?

Quite simply I give no credibility to Islam on two grounds, first being - just like all the other silly religions that follow fairly tales they are a embarrassment to humanity, secondly I am a humanitarian and a human rights campaigner, and does islam keep us busy? You fucking bet
the treatment of women children Kurds animals and any one who doesn't follow their madness is incompatible with post renascence thinking.
To them it is about imperialism and domination, muslins now out number Catholics, well three threads crowing about stats or damn lies is a tell tail to how gullible they are, e.g.: the growth of Islam in the west is not due to converts but hundred of thousands of them poring out of their own counties into ours to escape the brutality of their own state against them, and I don't hear the pope telling Catholics their heads will be chopped off if they dissolve their relationship with the church ….. unlike Islam. Fear other men because of their reglion ..what a fucking joke , what I fear is people that call themself 'spirtes of the time' dragging us back a thousand years.

Oh and you call it a revolution Drew , I call it the dull democratic voting system, that will give America a new leader, an old bird or a glowing faced kid that Putin will dry rape
