RE: The Dreaded Abortion Debate

What bothers me most is that people who are against abortions are quite often also against day nurseries, day-care centers and all-day schools, things that help mothers care for their children. Sure, they're allowed to be conservatives, but at least they could try to be coherent.  <img src="htt...

RE: YPF Announces Confirmation Of Huge Oil Shell

Nearly a billion barrels of oil. That's good for the economy of the country, but that's only 28 days worth of oil, even if it is consumed only by the US and the EU.

RE: A Little Chart About The 100%

It would help when the y axis (the income) would be logarithmic, so that you can compare the fluctations much better.
