But here are some more: They both have masters in computing and science. Both are software engineers.They both had there first interactions with computers without mothers or fathers involved.
Some differences are Richard was born in New York and went to Harvard where as Linus was born in Finland and went to the university of Helsinki. Linus is married with kids Richard Doesnt have ether.

The act was put in place to stop faulty and unfair selling and buying of goods.
The act covers:
- Goods of a type normally buy for ordinary household or personal use.
- New and used goods bought on or after 1st April 1994
- Goods bought but action of tender
- Goods bought from a private seller
There are a number of remedies dependent on the situation. Whether the object is broken or not how serious the problem is.
Most of this is from the ministry of consumer affairs.

Wolves are my favorite animal and I just wanted to share some facts about wolves.
1) The wolf has one of the widest ranges of size, shape and color of any mammal in North America
2) The main threat to wolf populations is loss of habitat
3) In chases, the wolf can achieve estimated speeds of between 28 and 40 miles per hour for up to 20 minutes
4) Lone wolves have no social territory and rarely scent-mark or howl
5) All members of a wolf pack take part in caring for the young
6) There are two species of the wolf in North America, the Gray Wolf (Canis lupus ) and the Red Wolf (Canis rufus )
7) The "beta" wolf is the second ranking individual within the dominance hierarchy
The "omega" wolf is the lowest ranking individual within the dominance hierarchy
8) Three (3) geographic races of the red wolf have been recognized; the Florida Red Wolf, The Mississippi Red Wolf and the Texas Red Wolf
9) Adult male wolves average ninety-five to one hundred pounds and females about fifteen pounds less
10) Wolves are active at all times of the day in winter
There are some of the coolest facts about wolfs.
But one thing you must always remember the Black Wolf is coolest of them all.

I have a message about this "vaccine" the government are giving us to help avoid HPV. I did a little research on this so called "vaccine". I have learnt that after have the injection some girls have been crippled and others have died. One story is of a girl named Amanda. She used to be very active until she had the HPV vaccine from her school nurse. Amanda is constantly sick and she can barely go to school any more. NVIC are still receiving reports from grieving mothers and fathers about their child being chronically ill after having the gardasil immunization.
There is more information about all this on the website below

Mum has always been an animal person so she chose to raise us around animals so we would treat them well as we got older. We currently have two cats.
That big gray one is mums blue Burmese Goliath. We got him of Nana her neighbor was moving and he wasn't aloud any animals at his new place. So Nana called us and asked if we wanted a big gray Burmese and we said yes. Hes now ours and he has lost 2KG since we got him.
That small black one is named Licorice. He was a stray off the streets. he had kitten flue so he snuffles quite allot but he cant help it. But no matter where he came from hes my cat and i love him heaps!!
Beware: This creature may be cute but don't let looks fool you.
Enstraya can be deadly when annoyed.
Its tail can be used as a whip. Like a cat its claws are most of the time sheathed it will only unsheathe them when climbing or attacking an enemy. It also has a very powerful kick.
The Enstraya can almost always be found near a source of water. It only lives in ether trees or well covered bushes.
It's life span is unknown.
