The Breadeaux building is empty because it is effectively worthless. The entire upper floor is covered in feces and the building basically requires 100k in repairs. One may as well level the building and re-build from scratch.

The FACC will not stand vacant if the price is reduced each month that it does not sell. Eventually the price will be correct and an investor will take the building. This is obvious. If it were selling for 100k I would buy it tomorrow.

Another study, funded by AAA, found that while cell phones do distract some people, more crashes are caused by other distractions. The study found 29.4 percent of accidents caused by distracting activities were due to activities of a person, object, or event outside the car, and 11.4 percent of accidents were attributed to radio controls. Does that mean we should be banning billboards and audio systems?

People do all kinds things while driving. They eat, fix their hair, put on lipstick, light cigarettes, and we even saw someone curling their eyelashes. If we must always drive with two hands on the wheel, should we outlaw picking your nose? Just putting on my sunglasses or drinking a sip of coffee takes a hand of the wheel. The radio is a big distraction problem; I'm constantly distracted trying to push the tiny buttons to avoid commercials.

Here is the study that showed cell phones are more dangerous than alcohol. After reading it, I'm not convinced. The standard errors are high enough that the differences in breaking response time, following distance, recovery time, and speed could all be identical, with differences showing because of errors in measurement.

It is also thought provoking to see that all three groups did not differ significantly in an any category including the alcohol impaired group (excepting the "braking force" measurement; the impaired hit the breaks harder).

I have two iPhones on my ATT contract and both are 99% dead. They intermittently have service throughout the day, but not enough to use the phones.

I think the TM community rejects beef because Maharishi was forgiving of consuming fish and chicken but regarded cows as possessing a higher level of consciousness. In India cows are not consumed and are given free roaming privileges in city streets/markets.

Neither of the links provided seems to offer supporting evidence for using whole plants instead of the isolated active ingredients; how did you arrive at this conclusion?

GMO foods are another issue, but claiming that we evolved to sustain ourselves by consuming the "natural" foods of the modern era is pure fiction. Most of the plants and animals we eat today have been modified by man (via "artificial natural selection") to be easier to grow and easier to eat.

The plants and animals we eat today could not exist in nature, as it were, either. Farm animals are too fat and tame to survive (which makes them easy to raise and have tastier, fat-marbled meat), and the plants we eat have too little natural defenses(natural pesticides), not enough reproductive capacity, and have oversized roots and fruits, specifically modified for our tastes but disastrous for a wild plant trying to reproduce without being eaten animals or pests.
