Humanity can deflect any killer asteroid -- if we know it's coming
Mon Nov 25, 2013
It would be asinine of us as a species to have our extinction be caused by something as simple as "we couldn't afford it".
Wait a minute, Mr. Postman: New mail delivery schedule raises eyebrows
Wed Feb 6, 2013

Woman who claims winning Mega Millions ticket refuses to produce it

Wed Aug 3, 2011
Or a large bug. Riding motorcycles, you get hit by them constantly and they can hurt. That's why inpact-resistant glasses are hightly recommended when riding...and possibly on coasters now, too. I can sympathize with him, but I think this is just a freak accident. God bless.
