    (on a side note, Geno, you're on top of the deaths all the time! Do you read the obituaries every day? )

    You know, it is a funny observation you've made, Jason. I have never thought of it as a topic of its own, but I guess, when someone great, famous or in some way significant (to the world we're living in) passes away, the world changes. You know, like they say: "It'll never be the same without you". That kinda thing.......

    This is probably the reason that I've been an obituaries announcer lately. Too many historically important figures (if not giants) have been leaving the world lately.

    LCD, the next best thing after slice bread.

    Not really but LCD sure changed our lives significantally.
    I remember when I bought my 17in LCD like 8 yrs ago and I was not an early adopter then (not to mention it was freaking expensive), but right now, it's relatively cheap available in almost everywhere, from the kitchen fridge to a handheld GPS.
