...a topic is dormant for a while, then gets revived by someone new or the originator, then there is a flurry of activity in the thread, then it gets locked out. Does an old topic fill that much more space than a new one? Perhaps they should be automagiacally locked after
x weeks (months, days, whatever) of inactivity???

There are more than 40 species of ant in Manhattan.
Of those, more than half specifically inhabit the medians in highways.

Negative people who have to think they know everything and don't look at things from other peoples perspective. Sadly see it in many places.

80% of door close buttons on elevators are nonfunctional. Some have become damaged and not repaired...most were never wired up.

Why is it that one makes an appointment for a factory ordained recall, confirms it the day before and, then is told the repair facility ran out of parts when he arrives at 0730 the day of the appointment? The parts in the transmission will be in around December. Do they not realize--or even care--that one is wasting his time roaming about on a Saturday morning and the could use something--a new invention -- called a TELEPHONE to notify customers. A North Las Vegas KIA - Mitsubishi dealer is the guilty party and has had all sorts of complaints. Who to complain to to get something done?

This year, world wide, 1/2 a million will die of malaria
over 600,000 have already died of AIDS
almost 250,000 will die of hunger
125,000 will die of TB
26,000 from syphilis

MEANWHILE:
4500 have died from Ebola...

Not saying Ebola isn't dangerous, or a gruesome way to go, just making an observation

How about a serious disease outbreak in some remote area, like Africa and your government brings several of the diseased and expiring victims out of that area into your area? Does this make sense to me? Does it make me go hmmmmmmm?

Same government, same situation. All other countries send doctors and nurses. Your country sends 4,000 troops into a disease ravaged area? hmmmmmmmmm.

The lead acid battery, used to start your car, was invented over 150 years ago. That technology hasn't changed much since that time and in fact, in battery research, they call that device a "box of dirt."
