    Are you the same company that makes dishes? My mom married a 2nd time, and HE broke a plate I thought was unbreakable, Corningware. AMAZED that it took that long to see one break, and sick that happened at the same time. NOT disappointed in the plate, sick about him doing what he did. If you make those, good job! If not, probably still deserve "Good Job". Mythbusters do a LOT, I can't keep up. I got here from one of their videos.

    Can you imagine world without aluminium? I guess we're in the aluminium age. Or maybe the steel age. Or maybe the Silicon age. Or maybe the advertisement age.

    The fabrication age; we are learning how to make so many things out of so many materials, which, when you think about it, makes more things count as being resources, which is probably more efficient then getting more resources to use in the first place.
