I bet they would love Horatio Cane from CSI:Miami.

She loves science fiction as a matter of fact. She ponders all kind of pop science topics.

Heinlein? I'm pretty sure this girl is older than fourteen. How about some grown up stuff? Maybe Samuel Delaney or James Hogan?

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)
The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass

Just to keep everyone up to speed, my unkrainian girlfriend is coming in two weeks. She was finally released from her job and allowed to go to america. She needs help from me though in telling her which airport to go to and which airline. I figure any airline is best if you buy two weeks in advance. I also figure New York City's airports would probably be the cheapest even though it will mean a long commute for me to pick her up.

It is very easy to compare airfares online. Try kayak.com as a start. It might be cheaper to fly her closer to you than driving half way across the country to get her.(have no clue where you are) NY is not always cheapest gateway, Chicago and Atlanta have many flights to Europe.
She needs help from me though in telling her which airport to go to and which airline.
Potential red flag here. If she can get on the internet she can do the same research as you. Tell her to find the cheapest flight to a major airport.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Ah, where would men be if women didn't depend on us for things they could do perfectly well themselves? That's why God created spiders.

Also, accelerants. Because you can't be sure it's dead unless the flames were at least 5 feet high.
I hate spiders. This is why I think we should nuke Australia from orbit - it's the only way to be sure. Possibly also South America.
Anyway, to FEY - good luck as your long-distance relationship takes the most important step of all: the first in-person meeting.

The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it. - Francis Bacon
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers
A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity. — Albert Camus
"...the pious hope that by combining numerous little turds of variously tainted data, one can obtain a valuable result; but in fact, the outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." - Barash, David 1995.

It's the hairy millipedes I hate most. I need to use a whole wad of tissues to remove a single millipede from my house after it has been thoroughly, and utterly squashed with snow boots.
When I was in the Gomantong Caves in Borneo, I walked over poisonous centipedes scurrying about the gauno-covered-wooden walkways.
Really. Really. Really. Hated. Them. (just what was god thinking in creating those damnable things?)

Finally, I will be arriving in kiev, Ukraine on the 14th of December. My passport should be here shortly. I have a changeover in brussels belgium. Do i need to have that country on my passport book as well as ukraine. I also have a flight from kiev to the crimean penninsula. I'm not sure I understand the politics of it but I read that crimea is run somewhat independently from the mainland. I hope they don't require a seperate passport as well.

If you never leave the international area of the airport, then you should not need documentation.
