UserJS is an Opera feature that allows you to enhance the browser experience/a specific website by using java script. Scripts are often really small and quite easy to write. If you have not used UserJS before I highly suggest that you start with these scripts and see if you like them. Read Opera's quick introduction
for more details :autosizer http://userjs.org/scripts/browser/enhancements/enhance-blockquotes
Automaticly resizes images to fit the screen, can also be used to zoom in on a image enhanceblockquotes http://userjs.org/scripts/browser/enhancements/enhance-blockquotes
Enhances block quotes
Pretty straight forwarded googlesuggest http://userjs.org/scripts/site/enhancements/google-suggest
Adds Google suggest (http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en
) to Google.com, quite a nice way to really show UserJs's possibilitiesimagepreloader http://userjs.org/scripts/browser/enhancements/image-preloader
Loads the images in a map for quickviewing, see it as a sort of prefetcherlastmeasure http://userjs.org/scripts/general/enhancements/block-last-measure
Blocks certain sites that you DO not want to see. Must have for everyone that visits the ''less organized'' IRC channels.
You can find loads more scripts on Opera's dedicated website : Userjs.org
or try some greasemonkey scripts : greasemonkey.mozdev.org

And yet another piece of liberty dies, we start with disallowing minorities to follow their religious believes. Then we ban the religion and modify Christianity to make sure that Christianity is an all loving religion
, we slowly label people that aren't Christean's as communist or rebels and.... welcome to 1984!
The burka is a choice that people make not something thats enforced on them, not allowing people to wear a burka is something that is enforced on you. Besides that the separation of church and state is something that is supposed to work both ways.
I'm no Muslim, never will but I think that this is not something that we should allow to happen. Especially not in the tolerant, liberal Netherlands we learned to love.

What happens when a Japanese ''researcher'' (the article doesn't say anything about a university the guy might be connected to) publishes a book about the molecular structure of water (H2O
)? Well for one we do get to see some pretty pictures and a good laugh! I haven't read the book but the review in the article linked to has some really nice information, shall we start?
First of all he suggest that the place where he took samples has influence on the molecule shape. This sounds weird to me, considering that he mentions the place but not the conditions. Then he suggest that pollution might influence water, once again weird but not impossible. But it gets really freaky after he suggest that prayer actually makes an enormous difference.
But wait! there is more! He says that music influence water, not only is that claim at-least weird (is it the music that makes the difference or just the vibration caused by the sound?) but also impossible considering that there is noway water has emotions. Also note that no details are given about the volume, exact duration or in the case of ''heavy metal'' the artist/track!
I'm not going to talk about the rest thats just to freaky!
