Click It or Ticket - Unless You're Bush

If you're not a born again Christian, you're a failure as a human being." "Feminists just need a man around the house." "There is no separation of church and state." And of course, everyone's favorite, "The purple Teletubby is gay." - Bill Maher

At the London Science Museum, museum staff member Georgina Wright sits in an exhibit, the Toyota Motor Corp.'s I-unit, an electric car built almost entirely of material derived from corn, sugar cane, and the African kenaf plant. An exhibition at London's Science Museum, celebrating the 100th birthday of the world's first entirely synthetic material, plastic, opened Tuesday. Belgian-American chemist Leo Baekeland created his phenol-formaldehyde polymer resin, Bakelite, in 1907 and it sparked a revolution in manufacturing, transport, fashion, design, and more.
