ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

As the old saying goes, one person's trash is another person's treasure. What's the best thing—chairs, roller skates, old electronics—you've ever found that someone else had thrown away?
not me personal, but recently my friend´s parents found four chairs supposed for trash and took them home for her.
they are wonderful wooden and leather, a bit old but still good and quite comfy.
and my first bicycle was from trash. new weels and breaks and it was fine.

Hospital dramas are a time-honored staple of television, from General Hospital to County General to Seattle Grace. Which TV hospital would you most want to check in to? And who would be your doctor?
I'd choose Dr. G. House.
He can be a giant ***** but he is a good doctor. And I would be fun having a conversation fight with him. And Foreman is there to take care of me just in case. ;-)
He wouldn't mind the sacred heart either... Daydreaming with J.D . must be fun!

What do you want written on your gravestone and why?
It is not meant serioulsy, but one german comedian once sad he would like something, "coming back soon", or "I`m in the cellar."
I like the idea, cause it's funny. Death is part of life, and if we can see it like that, and with a bit more humor,  maybe we wouldn't fear it that much....
