The issue is free speech, don't doubt it for a second.
Don't listen to those who say it's not. When the
government is fining people, it's a free speech issue.
And while the fines may or may not be the same, the
enforcement is engaged at a much lower standard now,
since the Janet Jackson incident.

That's assuming, of course, that there's no pressure
from the government discouraging dissent. Clearly it
exists; check any Bush rally. People have gone to jail
for protesting peacefully. If you don't believe me, do
a google on the words: Free Speech Zone.

I didn't take it quite that seriously, I knew what you
meant. I will allow no chance for a joke to pass,
however. That's just me.

Scott is the only scientist here, I'll leave it to him

Ah, but is it a purposeful vibration? Or random
vibration? As I read you, the One Note is the
vibration and is therefore purposeful.

It could, it could.

If you had the answers, I'd suspect them anyway.

At least...for the moment. I'd like to think we will

Right, it's not like I have a choice. So I'll answer
as above: I'd rather not lost my individuality, but if
it's that or non-existence, I'll take one order cosmic
matter to go, please.

It's the particular wording, the particular sacrifice.
It's sacrificing in the wrong direction, I guess you

Graham, YES, Zelwiger, nah. Not interested.

Well...I'd give it a try, see what happens. I'm
willing to be that big about it.

I have to point out that those who believe in Jesus
believe he's one branch of God, so he IS God in the
sense Pete's talking about.
