I finally tracked down a discount code forhttp://www.TitaniumTwisters.com ! I know various members were searching for this, so I thought I'd share. They have a discount code "SANTA" that they are using on their website until the end of December. The "SANTA" code gives 25% discount on all purchases. This is perfect for Christmas, as I can get on their site and customize those rope necklaces for all of my kids for stocking stuffers. I think they are up to around 50 colors of rope now. You pick the colors, they assemble and mail it out within a few days. As we discussed before, TitaniumTwisters.com is a US company, not someone in China like most, if not all of the competing rope necklace companies. It also looks like they have a great fundraising program, if any of you are looking for a new fundraiser idea. Heres one I just designed on their website:

China do they have the right to recieve the olympics?
There is a serous issue that we face when allowing China to receive the Olympics. They have serious human rights problems. China is very similar to Germany in 1938, putting people in jail and reform camps for their beliefs and religion. What would we be saying as a world if we allowed them to host the Olympics in 2008? Latently I believe that we would be supporting their political system. They would think that the world has little problems with their political structure. When Tenemen square is going on and citizens are afraid of the government breaking into their homes and taking them away. We must not support the country when these beliefs are still in practice during this very hour. Please speak out, post a message voice your opinion. Allow a country that cares about their people to host the honorable Olympic games. Not a country that forces beliefs on their people. Not a country that locks their people away and rolls over them with tanks while protesting peacefully.

Just a quick one fellas. The olympic criminal organisation is nothing to be proud about. The endemic corruption, vested corporate interest and dirty politics that pollute this once noble tradition is a sexually transmitted disease no whore would wish upon another pushing in on her turf.
From a Sydney Sider who was raped and pilage by the experience don't be fooled by their lies and propoganda.
The cost of living will increase, homeless people will be harrassed as if an exhibition sport for the local pigs and the sad plebs will can't nationalistic slogans till their maple leave, painted on their race, turn blue.
It is a sham, a dirty dirty lie not worth living...
all the best...
is it true the canadian president's wife slept with Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones?
all the best

First of all, your argument is absolutely irrational and illegible. Secondly, CAnnuck is spelled with an A not an E. Thirdly and pretty much most importantly...Canada doesn't have a president it has a Prime Minister. STUPID is the only word I can associate to your message. Next time, think before you type, and you will save people like me the two minutes I took out of my life to respnd to you. Two minutes that I will NEVER get back!

You title the response 'is stupidity contagious?' and ridicule the text rather than the message of the mentioned comment.
if you wasted '2 minutes of your life that you will never get back' to point out trival mistakes like spelling and erroronous terms for heads of state, who is the fool, you who got so riled up they wasted some of their life or perhaps the person making a political comment?
which is the imperative of a democratic ideal
you suggest good grammar is more important than dissent?
if you thought before you typed as you suggest, perhaps you wouldn't expose the essence of your comment, yes stupidity is contagious, you caught it...
hopefully canada does not get the games for it is a shallow, shameless display of stupidity, a farce pretending multinational globalisation is not the real winner or idea of modern pointless sporting pursuits...
peace and post modern canadee

I think,Istanbul should host the games because,we tried it three times but dont get the games.We got also some other organisations like European Basketball cup or Volleyball cup and thounds of this organisations and we were also succesful.Now I will give you some reasons why ISTANBUL should get the games.1)We have the youngest population in Europe.2)It would help Turkish ecomony to grow.3)We have srated to build the the olympic village.3)Only Istanbul is the city which is located on two continents.3)The turkish sport has its golden years(for example:Galatasaray has win The UEFA Cup or Efes pilsen has win a basketball cup in Europe.........)There are still thounds of reasons.If you want to see all the reason then you should visit www.olympist.org
