  • Um, OK.
    The Women in Waders™ calendar makes a great gift for your buddy, your relative and yourself. Let the 12 beautiful Women in Waders™ take you on a year long trip to some of the best fishing locations. Go to the ocean for perch, to lakes for bass, to trout filled streams, or to rivers full of salmon and steelhead.[Women In Waders]

  • American Criminals Take "Mafia Lessons" in Italy
    Members of the Mafia in America were sent across the pond to perfect the criminal trade from pros in Sicily, according to a turncoat don. Antonino Giuffrè, arrested in 2002, confirmed FBI reports that members of the Bonanno crime family in the US were sent to the province of Trapani for training.
    One of the hardest lessons of an effective criminal organization to teach the Americans? To shut up. Giuffé said the code of silence, or omertà, was alien to the garrulous Americans: "They just couldn't stay quiet, they always talk too much." The improvised professors of crime were Cosa Nostra dons who agreed to take in the Americans on a learning-by-doing tour of how things are done in the old continent. [Zoomata]

  • Um, you had your hand in a shark tank, dumbass
    Menke said she and her daughter had their hands in the water, hoping to pet a small approaching shark that a woman monitoring the tank said was friendly. That's when another passing shark whipped around and bit her hand, she said.
    "If that thing had bitten my baby, I'd still be taking that place apart," Menke said.[WOKR-TV 13 Rochester]

  • Fun with Chemistry
    Why I became a chemist, lesson 1: explosions, pretty colors, and dry ice. This page lists some interesting chemical reactions, captured in moderately sized QuickTime movies. Well worth a few minutes of your time if you care at all to see chemistry in action. [NSLog();]

The Magic Word:
The two elements in water are hydrogen and ______

The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to constants;
instead of referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every appearance, the
variable PI can be given that value with a DATA statement and used instead
of the longer form of the constant. This also simplifies modifying the
program, should the value of pi change.
