  2. Stereotyped...and not sure what I should do
    The multi-tasking "skill" is over-rated. Yes, you do get pulled in several directions at once on a floor, but this is also how errors happen. And it is always the nurse's fault, BTW. The main problem...

    I'm a guy, and I dislike the V-neck on every top. Also, almost all of the tops are way too short to tuck in. The only one I've found is the new Grey's Anatomy line that is at least 4 inches linger,...

  8. Nokia Internet Tablet
    H-m-m-m Only 64Meg of internal memory, and no expansion slot . . . I didn't even get to the program compatibility question, and already this one is a non-starter. Good idea, since I like the...

  9. Drug Price negotiation could save 30 BN/yr.
    This sounds like more political rant from HM2Viking's far left website collection. Question: If the alleged $10B is "negotiated" out of the pricing, who pays for new drug research and discovery? ...
