Find The Human

A fellow named Paul English has come up with a voice mail cheat sheet to help you speak to another human being instead of listening to a recording asking you to press some number so you can listen to yet another recording that isn't helpful either. Some of the linked articles are interesting too.

9 year old argues with his mother on a Xbox Live Clan Match over Chocolate Milk.

National Security


The Army now admits that it secretly dumped 64 million pounds of nerve and mustard agents into the sea, along with 400,000 chemical-filled bombs, land mines and rockets and more than 500 tons of radioactive waste - either tossed overboard or packed into the holds of scuttled vessels.

These weapons of mass destruction virtually ring the country, concealed off at least 11 states - six on the East Coast, two on the Gulf Coast, California, Hawaii and Alaska. Few, if any, state officials have been informed of their existence. The chemical agents could pose a hazard for generations. The Army has examined only a few of its 26 dump zones and none in the past 30 years. The Army can't say exactly where all the weapons were dumped from World War II to 1970. Army records are sketchy, missing or were destroyed.
