Best Inventions of the year!

http://www.time.com/time/2006/techguide/bestinventions/

I enjoyed looking at their list. My favorites would have to be the water production invention. That's some crazyness, or is it craziness, that could solve water problems for a lot of developing countries out there. Or it could also solve logistical nightmares like deploying water to troops or to disaster-ravaged towns, but that's really just on the practical point of creating the system rather than a real world need.

Mmmm...

honestly i think that its hard to remain neutral in these things. firstly, it doesn't matter who your better friends with in my opinion. i thought i had a friend who was exactly in your position before. in fact i had multiple friends who were in your position before. because they were both friends with me and the ex no one really encouraged me to break up with him. and so i ended up enduring something much longer than i wish i had.

i think that you did the best you could do. you didn't tell her to outright break up with the guy, but its only responsible as a friend to really ask her whether the relationship was good for her. and she went to ask you for advice, as much as her ex could tell you that it was none of your business, she came to you. it's not like you went looking for it. i think it's a real friend when you can be honest and really tell them what you think of the situation and not just what they want to hear.
