You should enjoy some nature and just bring your discman along.

I wish my honest answers about why I didn't buy something didn't revolve around money.


I'd love to say "I didn't buy the Veyron because it didn't come in green."

If you did just get out of a coma though I'm glad you're doing better.

Looks like CNN-International is still on some cable systems and Uverse, but Directv and Dish dropped it years ago.

This is totally off the wall, but is it possible this is in regards to DirecTV Latin America? Though based on GCT'S last report, CNNI was still there.

Don't worry;

There's always the "break-a-way maneuver" from the sun available to go back in time to retrieve it and bring it into the future. :D

It was replaced with CNN-SI. Eventually, that channel is going to take over ESPN.
