    Justin Bieber

    this character has been in Australia and the media (of course because they're mostly a pack of vasuous self-serving pirahnas) have been touting him and then showing footage of him being screamed at (I assume adoringly) by hordes or equally vacuous teenage girls (mostly).

    Um, but has his voice broken yet?
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    The mere mention of Justin Beiber makes me scream ... on our sister site, Talk Classical, someone tried to compare Justin Beiber's music to Mozart or some other grand composer.

    Then on WikiAnswers (where I'm a Sr. Supervisor & Sr. Site Guardian) Justin Beiber starts popping up everywhere - just like Miley Cyrus did a year or so ago. I see nothing special about this character - thanks to the media though for un-necessarily pumping up people to be something other than what they really are, or should be.

    It is amazing that he appeals to young girls I thought they went in for older men

    I would have thought they'd have gone for men with at least funcational "wobbly bits".

    The site's server has several disk drives that are exact mirror images of each other ... if one fails the other takes over. They continually update each other ... they could have been in that mode at that particular time, which would have caused an innocent delay. If the problem persists, please let me know.

    Just tonight, another WikiAnswers supervisor posted this about Justin Beiber:

    "Anyone else notice this epidemic? So many weird/random Justin Beiber questions... lol"

    Wonder what really gives with these ... young celebs. I mean, who handed them the keys to Hollywood Boulevard anyway? Yeesh ...

    Now now, let's not be too harsh on the young'un and his tween fans. He seems fairly harmless. I'm sure the music industry sharks & media vultures will only hype and profit from him until the next hot commodity comes along, perhaps by next month.

    The only reason I even know about this guy is from all the crude jokes I hear everywhere (including from teenage girls).

    From past experiences Mike, I knew the real reason that they by-passed me was that they thought I would be beyond their advances
