Can man create a sun?

Tune into the latest GPS special, ‘Moonshots,’ on CNN this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.

The sun is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit and4.6 billion years old. So what if we could somehow bring this blazing ball of energy down to Earth to power our world?

Fareed hears from Ned Sauthoff, who is leading the U.S. contribution to the 35-nation ITER project that is hoping to pull off one of the most audacious feats of physics ever witnessed: creating a star.

    One time Donna and Chrissy got out of the hot tub and there was only one foot of water in it. And grease marks on the seats. And all the wine was gone. No more cheesecake either. (shrug)

        I also noticed the spoiled eggnog had been drank. And both of them were burping a lot. Donna threw-up on Chrissy and made her look prettier too.

    Can man end death? Can man wipe away the tears from our eyes? Can man even make a blue bird sing.

    Why are u so mean Philip? I pick on people too. But to play not to hurt. But even a sap like me has limits.

    In the last six months u have gotten worse

    JIF was very disciplined through Christmas day. The next day I binged on tortilla chips, hot sauce, and butter cookies.
    Once a year isn't all that bad, and food should not go to waste when obese children my think that they need more healthy grams of carbohydrates and less fat.

      @ rupert:
      Fazioli piano? It cannot get here soon enough. They are fantastic. All of them are good.
      I have never played one in public.
      You know about more than your share of stuff, rupert. Can you play the piano?

    All of this talk about overweight women is needlessly cruel. My first Truly Serious high-school romance was with an overweight Southern belle. I thought that she was the world's most attractive woman.
    It didn't last. She did much better.

    Hmmm. It might be her joey.

    Philip is so low he even made a reference to tori being obese when he has not even seen her. No bodys business what anyone's weight is. Who cares?

    For all we know tori may be skinny as a bored.

      I know that @ TORI is in shape.
      She said so, and she does not lie.
      Neither do her fine and brilliant parents.

        Good Memory @JIF, I do go to a gym every day like you do. Now that I am visiting my parents I will be walking every where.My car was stolen in New Orleans but at least the city where my folks are in is walkable.

    This is the only thing I have resembling a day off during these holidays. A pianist's occupational hazard is frequently split fingers. I spent yesterday letting mine heal, and today I have to harden them with benzoin. I've lived with these skin-skills since I was fourteen, so please don't bring up Jerkin's lotion.

      Does it not seem oppressively civil in this forum?
      Menotti uswd to write reams of jagged recitative so he could get by with two or three pages of his eclectic lyricism that would demolish any real human being's emotional state.

    No. If either three of them were cold, hungry and starving, I would throw water on them and kick dirt I their faces. And laugh out loudly. Seriously.

      I had to learn to hate them. I really liked all three at first. But one is so stupid but thinks she's highly intellectual, one thinks that if an old man raypes a young girl it's statutory raype but if an old man raypes a boy it's not (which offends me greatly, personally) and one just tells stupid jokes or posts word jumbles of official versions of news stories as if he was "thinking outside the box".
      I've known them here on the N for about three years. It has been a slow and painful process coming to hate them. Hatred is hard on a person. Even an old man.

    A person being hated...it's really no big deal. But a person with hatred for others...well. They won. They finally defeated me. I truly do hate them.

    Some days it's really hard to hate them. But most days they make it easy. As you can see this bothers me...my hatred. And so am dumping it off here so it doesn't nag me all day. I work on Saturdays and hatred makes it hard to do my job.

    Sometimes I say to myself "You really do hate her, don't you" and then start crying.

    The law code I live by does not allow me to hate people. In fact, it says that the prayers of law breakers are something detestable to God. And to love my enemies and have intense love for fellow believers. So I'm in big trouble right now.

      I would love and care for Usama Bin Laden's children if need be, but not kids of the 3 hated ones. That's really a sad state of affairs.

      You hate bobcat, Chrissy, and I because we do not take you seriously, and you cannot abide that.

      Become the abiding dude, because that will not change.
