    I thought this article was about America prior to Galileo? Scary....
    I find that stupid considering who you "decide" to poll....

    Cant say I'm shocked tho considering people have a hard time grasping my explanation for timezones.

    I just went outside and the sun has disappeared. Am I the only one who noticed this?

    I call bull****.I think the people answering the survey were just ****ing with the survey takers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    It was hanging around when I drove to work.

    It usually isn't around when I leave though. I suspect it works a day-shift schedule.

    So you're claiming that took a big ball of burning gas and moved it. This isn't funny. If you have it, please return it. I was using it. My work is vital.

    Forces beyond my control are constantly moving that **** around. I can't do anything for your issue, I'm afraid.

    You ever see some of these sackheads running around? They couldn't find their collective asses with both hands.

    A lesser person might have used this to ridicule me. So, I wanted to acknowledge your classy way of letting me off the hook, by trying to correct me without trying to embarrass me.

    Ok, my bad, didnt notice the tone. Its one of those common mistakes though. Just close enough to make sense . Like when people say the 'dark side of the moon' when they mean the far side.

    Still, Earth going around the Sun is....pretty basic.
