Re: 1534: "Beer"

I was under the impression that the primary reason that beer was safe to drink was because the brewing process involved boiling water. It's multiple things. Boiling the water kills off the bad stuff, the hops help to act as a preservative, and the alcohol keeps other microbes from growing. Plus, fo...

Re: Childhood misconceptions

I used to think that the phone number to my neighbor's house was "3". We had them on speed dial ever since I began using the phone, and I never actually had to call them from anywhere other than my house, except for when I missed my bus after school - my parents weren't home and I tried to...

Re: xkcd, the Motion Picture

Sims movie? Whatthefuck? A Sims movie could work in a Truman Show meets Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind meets Pleasantville sort of way. They'd have to go for a good surreal angle. But knowing movie producers, they'll make it in a Bruce Almighty sort of way. Darn, I was hoping to get go 4 for 4...

Assuming you're not planning on touching your money for a while, right now is a very good time to invest.
