CAN is just not good enough. The word which would be good enough is DOES and I don't think that that has yet been proven. Sorry but science can't and won't give you proof or certainty. We unfortunately don't deal in truths or proofs, and anyone who says we do is speaking out of their a**. We deal i...

Four response to Mid A 15's comments. I'd like to add that my responses to 2-4 are simply opinions added to the debate. My response to 1 is based more on what is a consistent misinterpretation of scientific research. 1. Climate Change This has become the new religion and political ideology all in on...

Yes, Plum is quite right. I had some emotional issues during my time and I was convinced to see the counseller. I think there was only one available. I personally found the experience quite unsatisfying. I later discovered this was probably a personal issue as I visited a different counsellor during...

First, sorry Mark, for turning your offer of advice into a political discussion. I think there's nothing wrong with being patriotic either. I am also fiercly patriotic when it comes to sport. I take your point about American influence in the world, but you have to accept, unfortunately, that this is...

Hi Arjan No offence taken to your questions; i get them a lot and so I'm fairly used to them. The US education system does differ from the European system and , yes, the level of education that your standard high school graduate has recieved puts them much below the level of an A-level student.

You'll adjust to the humor, I'm sure. Or else you can just impose your own. The tea however, you will never like. My best advice to you is to find a British or Indian store where you can buy imported tea, or else have some shipped from home. I'm glad you noticed the difference too. So you're going t...

This probably wasn't meant to make me laugh, but it did shades of that record "Hello Mudder, Hello Fadder" about the boy who went away to summer camp - Feel free to laugh. I certainly do when I think back to that time. I was quite the little wreck back then. - showing my age I think You might say t...

Unless you come to UCLA, of course!!! How's it going over there on the East coat, Mark? Are you finding American life to your liking? I'm sure you'll end up like me - I wouldn't go back if you paid me!!!

I remembermy first two and a half weeks fairly vividly. I was so homesick, it was unbelievable. I cried and cried. I plotted to get expelled. I called home and begged my parents to come get me. I wrote them letters telling them that they surely didn't care about me, because i was suffering and they ...

Has anyone been to Yellowstone? Yes, I went last year (when this question was posted!!) It's an awesome place. Kinda feels like you're on safari. I remember driving into the park on the first day I was there. A coyote ran across the road, right in front on me. That isn't so strange as I see them al...
