considered as two separate avenues of 6 lanes each.
Many web sites even say "The world's widest road is the Monumental Axis in Brazil, where 160 cars can
drive side by side." This is totally crazy!!!

The storage capacity of human brain exceeds 4 Terrabytes(NOTE:There are some dispute that, The human brain doesn't store memories and information in a binary
fashion. What researchers mean is that the human brain has the ability to store textual information equivalent to 2 Terabytes (technically 4 Terabytes if you mean Unicode)Interestingly there are some psycologists who believe that the storage capacity of the brain could be nearly infinite... I say nearly, because I don't understand how it could be infiniteWhen people who arn't physists or mathematicians talk about "infinity", they usually mean a number too large to comprehend or measure.There was an interesting case of this Russian fellow who couldn't forget a thing.... ever. For example, in his 20's some psycologist gave him a verbal test that involved some random number ordering for about 5 minutes, 50 years later he paid that psycologist a visit, and repeated the numbers back to him, the psycologist nearly had a heart-attack aparently.

Then president Richard Nixon appointed Gerald Ford as Vice President.After Richard Nixon resigned the presidency after the Watergate scandal. Gerald Ford was then sworn in as
president and appointed Nelson Rockefeller as Vice President.They finished out the remainder of the Nixon/Agnew term, but lost their reelection bid to Jimmy
Carter/Walter Mondale.So there you have it, during this 2 year period, we had a president and vice president running the
country who were never elected.

    I am the kind of hombre who enjoys to taste fresh things. Currently I am building my hold solar panels. I'm managing it all alone without the aid of my men. I am utilizing the internet as the only way to acheive that. I encountered a truly brilliant site which explains how to contruct pv panels and so on. The site explains all the steps required to solar panel building.

    I'm not really sure bout how accurate the information given there is. If some people over here who have xp with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the site it would be awesome and I'd highly treasure it, because I truly lav solar panel construction.

    Thanks for reading this. You people are great.
