    What about the Statue? Did that beat the Germans into submission in WWII or did the US army keep Hitler from ........ing on your really ugly metal tower?

    Alright. You can make fun of a man's ugly metal tower. You can make fun of a man's feminine style of playing tennis. But making fun of a man's ugly rock? You don't ever, make fun, of a man's ugly rock. That's just wrong. What's the matter with you?

    Lincoln, Washington (quite a few of ex-Presidents), Vietnam, WWII (quite new), and probably a couple of others. And that's just Washington D.C.

    If you're talking Rushmore-style BIG I don't think I can think of any. Rushmore is pretty unique and I don't think it's even really considered a monument.

    Not me. Hey speaking of politics (we kind of were), anybody ever notice the political parallel in computer companies?

    Windows, DOS, Microsoft- Conservative (more for the OS rights than user rights)
    *Nix, Open Source Communites - Liberal (more for the user rights than OS rights)
    Macintosh, Apple, etc. - Green Party (some good ideas, but who wants to throw their vote away?)

    There is not the slightest indication that [nuclear energy] will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will.
