Thank you, Ben, I enjoyed reading this article. Reminds me so much of Philosophy 101 "are you real or are you just a brain in a vat?"

BTW; -It's been 2 months since I submitted a story. I hold my horses, there are soooo many "News" as it is. Some days C2NN is a bloody joke, and so is the petition site. Now I've said it...and again I ask;
-What if a million members would really Care2???
