8/10    what is the second most wired country in the world? a
        western european country, like France, or a tech-savvy
        one like Japan? or neither?
        \_ Korea and Finland are very high up there.  -John
        \_ Singapore, maybe?
        \_ i think in order:  US, Japan, Hong Kong.
           \_ I'd say, Japan, Hong Kong, US....
        \_ Wired?  Wired with what?  Phones, cable, dsl, what?  What does
           'most' mean?  Most feet of cable, most people, largest percentage
           of population, what?

9/14    Does anyone have the controversial book Bell Curve? I know
        it has the political incorrect [and perhaps flawed] data that
        shows certain race have higher IQ than other race and I'm
        wondering how smart Russians are relative to white Americans
        and East Orientals. I can't seem to Google for this information.
        The only thing I got is the following:

2/21    So, European AC is 220 (2 round prongs), and my American dryer takes
        220, right?  Now, I'm pretty sure it's not a good idea to plug a
        European appliance into my dryer's power outlet, but I'm not really
        sure why.  Is it just the 50hz vs 60hz problem?
        \_ I think it would work fine, actually.
        \_ most dryer sold in USA only takes 110V, and 220 outlet will

1/12    I'm thinking of going to the Caribbeans for honeymoon, then maybe
        Disneyworld. This is for mid-March. Any advice? I'd like to make
        it as simple as possible... the less work, the better.
        \_ Isn't Disneyworld for children?
           \_ Go to EPCOT where they have beer and hot foreign chicks.
              \_ I went to Disneyland with my wife twice (October and June).

        \_ I wish I had saved this graph that compared retail space per
           capita between Britain, Sweden and the United States.  We had
           something like 20x-30x more retail space per capita which suggests
           there are a lot more store closings coming up.
