I thought those things looked interesting so a while back, maybe two years ago, I foolishly clicked on one of the ads.

First of all, holy shit, I thought paraglider wings were expensive. No thanks.

Second, whatever algorithm they're using is worse than an STD. I'm still getting ads for them.

Jimmy & Rosalyn Carter's wedding – 1946.
This should become rather poignant in the not too distant future.
And yeah, Jimmy took me high school class on a tour and lecture of a nuclear reactor in Ga Tech (downtown Atlanta). Submariner, you go bud.

Yeah, the same thought occurred to me. Made me sad.

The current oldest living person was born in 1903.

She's now the 3rd oldest of all time.

The fragments of a 1941 love letter to a woman named Iris, found nearly three miles under the ocean in a shipwreck, have been painstakingly pieced together by experts, 80 years after it was posted.

BUILD A WORKING LASER PISTOL

What could be simpler? Send the company your $2 and in return you’d receive detailed blueprints for building your own laser gun at home. Imagine the fun of vaporizing your friends and teachers.

My mother is left-handed. Her younger sister had that "corrected" by her parents after they realized the error of their ways.

Not sure why some people thought it needed to be corrected.

For baseball players it seems to be a sort of natural advantage.
