. . . Just attach a bit of velcro - less that a buck at a hardware or general type store. One little half inch piece on the remote controller, the other sided piece on the side of your telly and also near the easy chair and you'll not be hunting about for that bloody clicker ever again!

Regular consumer batteries should have a small deposit, just like beverage containers do in many places, so that purchasers have an incentive to return them and so that they are recycled properly and more frequently.

Celebrities must be beyond totally frustrated with the unwanted attention the are getting with respect to their private lives and all too human mishaps. Free speach should be assiduously protected, and their right to express it should not be abridged in the law, absent safety and other legitimate legal restraints on their activities in the name of free press.
