Last week I had a lengthy conversation with a prospective SC State Senator. When I tried to tell her about the North Decota State Bank, she was enthousiastic and wanted more info. So I used the Contact tab @ NDBank.gov

Within half an hour I got this reply:

Thank you for your interest in Bank of North Dakota. I am happy to provide you with some recent independent research of our model and other website information.

The following are links to the research paper out of Boston and expert testimony out of Vermont.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
