Maybe it's time to do some science on Elephants to stunt them, make them grow up smaller.
Maybe we could teach them to smoke tobacco.

Interesting article about Clark Gable. And I've always found Amaretto to be too sweet -- now I know why!

Abolish the left turn ?
Is the internet only for America ?
My country drives on the left, as does Japan, the U.K., South Africa, Australia ... (plus many more - see the list in the link) ... abolishing the left turn means we can't get into our houses anymore !

Really, talk about self centred, USA !
2,800,000,000 people drive on the left.
