In World War I, nearly as many British men refused the draft—20,000—as were killed on the Somme's first day. Why were those who fought for peace forgotten?

The ever-popular chick flick is becoming a phenomenon for more than just “chicks.” With a predictable template and fantasy story lines one can explain in a matter of a few words, as well as a heroine who finds inner peace and becomes one with the world around her, it is no wonder how chick flicks have transcended audience boundaries....

6. There will be less fertile cropland per person in 2004 than in 1994. As the population grows, some of Earth's best farmland is being paved over.
