At some point your eyes were opened. Maybe in the car waiting in traffic. Maybe when you were shoving breakfast in your face before shuffling out the door. Maybe when you missed your child's game because you had to stay...
There are a few catastrophic events that could eliminate the human population from earth in the near term - asteroid impacts, supermassive volcano eruptions triggering other geologic events, for example. There are...
New research suggests that scientists are getting closer to unlocking the secrets of aging. Some claim to have extended the life of a worm to the human equivalent of living 400-500 years. The question is: Do you...
Groupon is apparently planning an IPO later this year, possibly in the fall. This after turning down a bid from Google for over $6 billion! It's reported they could raise $1 billion off the IPO, but there is concern...
Since I'm still a relative n00b, I'm trying to figure out how to view the stats (I'm talking keywords and metrics - not just traffic because I know I can find that in my account) on my hubs without actually viewing them...
So, while doing a little searching to check the position of one of my hubs, I noticed a page that contained the identical title of my hub, but it was an article that I hadn't created. I clicked on the link and it was an...
Yeah, I know the bottom fell out of it a couple years ago, but it's surely still gonna happen right? Either it's a very, very well kept secret, or it's not being worked on yet... How can some studio not want to make...
I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these...
I wrote what I'd consider a decent informative hub about 4 weeks ago, and it still hasn't been indexed by Google. I'm not exactly sure why, and I haven't done a lot of research into the possible cause, but maybe someone...
Sometimes we just get in a pattern of doing the same things (good or bad) over and over again as part of our routine. Does it take a major catastrophic event to break out of a rut or just some introspection?
Unfortunately, we all take things for granted, or I hope I'm not the only one. What things/people do you take for granted every day?
I've read reports that say people have complained to the FCC because they think DWTS rigged the vote so that Bristol Palin would stay on the show longer and there would be more opportunity for Sarah Palin to get...
Smoking is a nasty habit, but should cities and towns be able to ban smokers from smoking in outdoor public places?
I like to have a clear purpose; however, I typically write technical pieces in my day to day work. I obviously have more ideas when I write freely, but it's harder for me to bring it all back in. How about you?
Really? These secrets were supplied by someone who swore an oath to protect them - not secrets because it would make the U.S. and others look bad, but because people could die if they were revealed. Sure, everything the...
I guess it depends on what field you're in, but if you don't plan on teaching, do the benefits of getting your Ph.D. outweigh the costs?
So instead of announcing that they'd found life on Mars, NASA announced today that they have found microbes whose DNA can be made with Arsenic as opposed to Phosphorus (which all other living things on earth use). Does...
Holy spam-a-lot, someone's question button threw up on hubpages...
The Big Dipper, Orion, the Southern Cross, or something else??
Go solo and store hop having carefully planned out each stop knowing exactly what you want, or maybe go with a team effort shotgunning people to several stores in hopes of finding the best deals once they get there and...
I know it's pushed off till probably at least 2012, but do you think they'll be a mad rush for Facebook stock?
What's a good place to go that isn't overflowing with people and still has a lot of things to enjoy?

So, it's all over the news these days...'TSA is groping me!!' People are taking videos and recordings on their cell phones, lawsuits are being filed, etc, etc. Is there something new going on here, or is the media...
I know there are spammers out there, but for the real writers...Is this site full of full-time, part-time, or aspiring writers or are there people on here just having fun or passing the time?
Sometimes I've just got too much going through my head to go to sleep. What's the best way to get my mind off of everything else? Is it counting sheep, doing math problems, or something else?
As the highest grossing film in history, James Cameron's Avatar was a tremendous worldwide blockbuster. With confirmation of two more Avatar films from Cameron himself, will the sequel and 'threequel' have as much...
So far, only the United States has sent a manned mission to the moon. It doesn't appear that the U.S. is going back any time soon, so who do you think will try for the Moon next?
Sometimes you use the Chinese pronunciation, sometimes the Japanese one depending on if it's a compound word, etc.
