Here's perhaps a less sensationalist story about DU , but no less upsetting. The 400,000 number is highly misleading, though ... it might be true if you put all of that material in one big pile . Since gamma radiation is, well, radiation, it weakens at a rate consistent with the square of the dista...

I want to know what the syllable xt sounds like.
I think he probably meant, "Uck-ston"

This is not a recent development. Before September 11, though, airport security was controlled by a handful of private security firms. If you had a complaint about it, you took them to court. Plain and simple. Now that the TSA is a government entity, people get their rights violated (just like befor...

As far as I understand it, you can lock your luggage, but if the x-ray machine kicks out your bags for any reason, the TSA has every right and authority (or so they say) to break the locks by any means necessary to inspect your luggage. So if the lock is a little padlock thingy, then that's probably...

Oh, good, now I can leave the house again.

(And yes, I am in a sour mood, because the battery in my car died today, and it was very hot, and it cost nearly $200 to get it fixed.)

I thought toilets were electric there for awhile. (Let us not digress into another "which way does your toilet flush" discussion, though.) There are two towns relatively close to each other here in southern California, one named Glendale and the other named Glendora. I thought they were brother and ...

I saw this movie last night (whilst on a first date ... but that story is for another time) and like most (if not all) Michael Moore movies, it made me angry. First of all, Michael Moore is an attention whore. Let's just get that out in the air right now. You know it, I know it, and the American peo...
