There is a national lights out in support of some green earth project. Google is playing along with a black home page.

As to why we don't do this permanently - it saves no energy; modern displays use the same amount of power regardless of what they display.


So, Blackle is useless, and that energy savings counter on their site is complete BS.

We need to unite together and put a permanent end to white pages. The evil energy consuming white pages are the root cause of the beginning of the fate of the world and it is all president Bush's fault dammit.

Please enlighten America on why boys are cross-dressing now and days. I notice people all the time wearing girls pants and Capri's even WTF!

Either you have a small weiner or no self esteem. please explain so us old timers who dress normal can know the answer to this phenom?

Axel - this isn't a direct shot at you, but since you represent that generation maybe you can help me understand.

Well I was kind of kidding. BUT I do own some tight-ish jeans.

Come to think of it those are the only jeans I have, but they are NOT girl pants. I am going to get so much for this, oh well, I still love you guys.

Think about it though duder. Look back at pictures from teh 80's and 70's, guys wore tight pants. Way tighter then mine. And those gay daisy duke things.

As to why guys go out and by actual girl pants, I do not know, for I wear man pants.

and the occasional kilt, but that is a story for another time.

Yes I remember the 80's and Biker shorts well. I have grown to realize no one wants to stare at your package, not even girls. The Biker shorts and Mullets were the worst thing to happen to men since, well since the 70's I guess.
