It's not that you technically can't, it's just that there are some technical hurdles and no infrastructure for it right now. I personally think solving that problem is the future of global energy. ...

Well, I don't have a satisfying explanation for it, but you probably don't need me to tell you why they're doing it. It's a pretty obvious token gesture for the Palin/Beck right. The midterms took...

I think you're better off just ignoring most of this flak. There are just as many reasons why this isn't Three Mile Island as there are why it isn't Chernobyl. It seems like everybody agrees that...

Frankly, your girlfriend might be right. If you can tear down a plant and put up a brand new one in 18 months, maybe you're not in bad shape to begin with, and there's nothing wrong with burning gas...

Google is also mediating donations to the JRCS (and others) at http://www.google.com/crisisresponse/japanquake2011.html. I know the nuclear story is on every front page at the moment, but way more...

I'm excited to see there'll be more of this coming. I like the whole buddy dynamic between Senkawa and Birdy, and having them stuck together kind of keeps them that way, at least for the short term....

Honestly, if you could magically swap the vocal performance like that, I think that song would fit right into the Beatles repertoire. Musically it sounds a lot like something Paul McCartney would...

It seems wrong to me to just point at one and say 'saddest', since there are all different kinds of sad. Haibane Renmei is probably my pick for heartwarming sad. Ima Sokoni Iru Boku wins for the...
