sim city

At right is a picture of the city of Toronto seen from a 45-degree angle. At left is a screen shot from the computer game Sim City, in which the player's objective is to develop and maintain a city, including traffic streams, utilities, population and so on. Yes, it's just a game, but remember, the young gamers of today will grow up to be the urban planners of tomorrow.

are you *sure* that the photo is on the left?
(I could believe that the right one is in-game graphics, not of the first simcity-version though :)

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
