After Sareth had discussed the delicate situation with the Jedi council, she went to her quarters. She found Echo's note, and looked it over, then looked it over again. Proud fool, she told herelf. Here you were being a nerfherder, and he was trying to apologize. Sareth began to realize that she had really letting her emotions get the better of her. Later, she would apologize too, but right now she needed to find Ben and tell him the Council wanted to talk with him.

Yes. Very long.
Your vehicle has an air bag. Should you be grateful or nervous? Is the air bag quietly lurking in your steering column or on the passenger-side dashboard, a silent protector, ready to save your life at a second’s notice? Or will it kill you trying? For more than a year now, air bags have been receiving bad press. With almost the speed of an inflating air bag, fear has burst onto the public scene, fuelled in a great part by the media frenzy in the U.S., where some undeniably tragic incidents have occurred. Drivers have started to wonder if they would be better off without the once-desirable safety devices. Since Transport Canada announced an air bag deactivation program last February, allowing on-off air bags to be installed in some vehicles, you might be having second thoughts about the value of air bags. Although you’ve probably heard the statistics that credit air bags with saving 150 Canadians from 1990 to 1997 (as well as preventing serious head injuries in 75 percent of the collisions during that period), the fact that five Canadians have actually been killed by air bags is hard to overlook. Are you safe, or aren’t you? CAA Manitoba isn’t about to dismiss air bag fears as nonsense by joining those who argue the benefits outweigh the risks. They do, but that’s small comfort if you’re one of the drivers or passengers at risk. Instead, CAA feels it has an important role to play in providing information to help you decide whether you really are at risk. It’s all about making an informed choice, instead of reacting in panic without knowing all the facts. So what are the facts? Well, air bags do expand with an explosive force of more than 300 kilometres per hour, at 1/20 of a second – or faster than the blink of an eye. That’s how quickly an air bag needs to deploy in order to be effective in high-speed crashes. Such force can cause minor cuts, bruises, or abrasions, but if you had to choose between these and having skull or brain injuries in a serious collision . . . you’d probably like your chances more with an air bag. The force that saves can also kill, but only if you are too close to the air bag when it deploys. The high-risk zone has been identified as the first eight centimetres of inflation. This is the crucial fact that has emerged from investigations of injuries and fatalities. It’s not your height, weight, sex, or age. Instead, it’s how close you are to the air bag when it starts to expand that’s important. Transport Canada does a very good job explaining this in the booklet, Air Bag Deactivation: What You Need to Know to Make an Informed Decision, available at all CAA locations or through the TeleCentre (as well as through the provincial Vehicle Standards and Inspections Winnipeg offices and the Division of Driver Vehicle & Licencing regional offices). The booklet itself can be used to check whether you’re sitting in the danger zone. “Keep 25 cm

Divine and barren upon the sea, flying, the bird is a king. His eyes watch the sad world, his soul weeps from compassion, the beautiful solitude. "Hang on, everyday is a lifetime, we all walk a fine line, between the Earth and the Sky.
And people keep on living when their hearts stop beating, just because everyone else is doing it. The candle might have gone out a long time ago, but the sun keeps shining, so we might as well act as though we're still shining. This world doesn't make sense. It's like a giant poker game. Everyone wears their poker faces, and if you let out the tiniest hint that your bluff is indeed a bluff, you are voted the weakest link. ------ I think that's from my blog... XP
