Thank you Linus Torvalds (Linux OS). Your gift has helped restore harmony and diminish the Evil Empire (MS). Truly a savior not The savior. Most of the ignorant masses have no inkling/clue (...they could care less... when they read this; I know) that the Android OS is a variant of your gift. Thanks!

You are the "Best" Sandy! Ubuntu (my favorite distro) does "almost" everything Windows can do. When/if (it's supposed to happen) Steam ports to Linux it's goodbye MS for me. AND If you hate the look it can look exactly like Windows or any of a number of other themes. ALSO Back to the original theme here: I'm thankful to the gov/USA for my "free" education; hard to imagine not being literate...

I'am thankful for Robert Frost, My passion for poetry was born and evolved into a study of creative writing. I am thankful for Alfred, Fearing what could happen was developed. "Like being burried a live." Which lead me at a young age to my being, what some refer to as morbid. I gained knowledge of the preperations of our bodies after death... Out come? "I do not fear being burried a live now." King Kong, realizing that, "even a beast is capable of love." Disney on ice! "Discovered my love for live Theater and opera." Dr. Suess, finding the love of reading and realizing that, my brain had Storage space and just waiting to be filled, with whatever I desired.

As far as writers are concerned I am going with Aldous Huxley and Shakespeare ( whoever he may be ). I am thankful for the few courtious drivers out there and for people that walk on the proper side of the side walk. I am thankful for people who use crosswalks instead of just walking into traffic and expecting them to stop. I am thankful for taxpayers that support this economy and I am unthankful for the politicians that piss our hard earned money away on ski trips to Colorado for their families. I am thankful for family, all 20 billion of them since we are all related thanks to a little lady named Lucy. I am thankful for creative thinkers like Darwin and the fiction writers that got together and dreamed up the bible to explain the unexplainable to people with the equivelent of a 2nd grade education at the time( not today !! but that book is a little outdated , just saying ). THanks Yall

Lucy? ALSO It's easy to dismiss religion as backward and "unscientific". BUT Look at the profound impact that the world's religions have had. It's 2012 in reference to what? Just one affect of religion on the everyday lives of theists, agnostics and atheists. AND The term "outdated" represents a fundamental failure to grasp the significance of the unchanging moral "compass" that we will call a "transcendental revelation" embodied in texts such as the Ten Commandments. Ethics (morality) and ethical concerns seem to be timeless in nature; 5000 years ago or today or 5000 years from now human beings will face the same ethical concerns in different surroundings. It's about doing the right thing...

Well put, but it seems that most religions moral compass point towards confrontation. Do we really need the idea of a higher being judging us to make us do the right thing in todays society? I am not religious by no means but I respect all religions and love reading about them to better understand them.It seems to me that the majority of the worlds religions are very similar with the major difference being the dieties they worship. With all of the similarities why is it so hard to get them to agree. More people have died in the name of a god than any other wars, and for what? It is about doing the right thing but religions tend to complicate that a bit by outlining what is right by their standards and promoting conversion by their members.

Lucy was a poke at evolution.
