    ragepro, man, you need to cool it on these double posts. if your connection or computer keeps screwing up, open a new tab or window and check to see if your post showed up! also, there is an "edit" function for your posts. you don't have to type the same thing with a few more words added.

    *edit* see, edited post. very easy.

    pda, well im really organized first of all, second its kinda more like a multimedia thing. it has a camera, 1.2 mp, has bluetooth, plays mp3's and what not. it'll be entertaining :)

    i figure my parents will teach me how to drive, i kinds already know how to, ive done it in pakistan before where the police doesnt really care. if you ask me, pakistan's roads are waay more rough than america's. most of the roads dont have the painted lanes

    You are lucky. I wish my parent paid for my driving school and give me a car to drive with to school.

    Since I left school, in 1982, I have only borrowed £100 ($180?) from my mother. I have had to pay for everything myself. If I wanted something, I paid for it! Simple as that!

    Made me appreciate money & life is not a free ride! Kids are so spoiled today, they get their parents to pay for EVERYTHING. No wonder we are in a world full of greed & selfishness.

    Especially as there are people in Niger who have not eaten properly for 9 months. That makes me sick to the pit of my stomach. The film companies will happily pay so called "film stars" $25million, footballers are paid £100 000 per week. And there are millions starving to death. To see a small child clinging onto its' life is a very powerful thing. How do these executives sleep at night?

    I feel ashamed to be part of "civilisation"

    Bush summed it up in one sentence;

    "the haves & the haves more"

    That is possibly the most shameful thing I have ever heard from a so called "leader".

    But the rest of the worlds leaders just follow suit. They do absolutely nothing about these crises.

    kinza, it's really best for a professional to teach you to drive versus having your parents teach you. everyone picks up little bad habbits behind the wheel, but your parents are far more likely to pass them on to you. also, they usually don't have the updated information a driving instructor will.

    if you get the chance, to prove my point, ask them where on the wheel you should position your hands if you have airbags in your car. if they say "10 and 2", and you use that in an airbag-equipped car, you're in trouble. the way airbags are shaped causes a bag to snap your forearms in the middle as it expands when they are at 10 and 2. dual casts aren't pretty. in such a case,"9 and 3" is the right way to go.

    @pulsar: I know you're not telling me specifically, but...I'm not greedy, I worked hard for my money and I deserve the money. I know there are people starving in the world but how much can we donate? I have donated money numerous times before but there is so much to do in developing countries. Bush has been and is an awful president, I doubt the US would have been different with Kerry but at least it would have been a change.

    @Auslander: I don't know if I'm going to take Driver's Ed, it's a no-brainer for some people but my parents are great drivers. I know you never know when you can get into an accident but I'm a pretty safe driver.
