Re: Perth Mint Online Depository Program

Yeah, but no one with a brain would use unallocated storage except as a temporary parking place.  I'm not sure I agree.  I think either you trust the mint or you don't.  If they're not honest enough to honor the unallocated storage, then why would anyone expect them to honor the allocated storage?

Re: OJ's Knife Found

During the Rodney King beating, some of the radio traffic included the following comment: "This is like something out of Gorillas in the Mist ." They first scene of the first episode of the FX show The People versus OJ Simpson is the footage of the Rodney King beating and LA riots.  It made me wond...

Re: Why men do not want to marry

I have been reading all of these relationship threads with great interest.  I have attempted to reply several times, but my responses always become convoluted and confusing.  I am just curious to know -- of those here who are married, how many are happy with the decision?  I don't think anything in ...

Re: Crazy Doctor Talk

I have dealt with physicians in a surprising number of settings, and the one thing that I can always count on is an attitude of: "I know.  I got it.", even when it was clear that they hadn't gotten it yet.  When you are trying to provide professional services to these people it can be maddening--e....
