.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

John,

Do you have a link for this science article/research?  I've been googling, but all I've found are references to some claims by an Austrian doctor named Friedrich Bischinger who says:
"With the finger you can get to places you just can't reach with a handkerchief, keeping your nose far cleaner. And eating the dry remains of what you pull out is a great way of strengthening the body's immune system. Medically it makes great sense and is a perfectly natural thing to do. In terms of the immune system the nose is a filter in which a great deal of bacteria are collected, and when this mixture arrives in the intestines it works just like a medicine. Modern medicine is constantly trying to do the same thing through far more complicated methods, people who pick their nose and eat it get a natural boost to their immune system for free."

I have teenagers at home & this could be a fun dinner topic. I'm sure my wife will be thrilled!

Thanks!

Post away Mick, inquiring minds want to read! Sad thing is many times people get grants to do these studies!!  I'm sure you guys on here could think of equally important ideas! Bring em on!  :roll:  J

As you may have noticed, even though everybody pretty much drives under the same conditions, there are those that never have accidents and then there are those that seem to crash into stuff all the time. And people in between the two extremes. There should be extensive research done on all these people and find out why. If it is something in the genes perhaps gene splicing could be in order to improve road conditions.
