    Re: Family Dog Kills 7 year old in SW Iowa

    Re: Family Dog Kills 7 year old in SW Iowa

    AKC registrations is not an accurate count of dogs in the country. And just because there are no reported pug bights doesn't mean there haven't been any. Similarly, a bite from a pit-bull type dog...

    Re: Family Dog Kills 7 year old in SW Iowa

    Does anybody have any idea how many of each of these "dangerous dog breeds" there actually are in the US? We really need to know that before we can know if Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, etc. are really...

    Re: DirecTV and 4K tvs

    Semi-related question, are there any "HD" projectors that actually give a decently sharp HD image similar to what I get from my 60" plasma viewed from about 12 feet away? It seems like every HD...

    Actually, yeah. The Level-k Reasoning allows you to go to an infinite level of recursion if you want. Fortunately you don't have to go past 3 or 4 levels of "I know that you know that..." in...
