Regarding Barry Manilow, I have "I am music and I write the songs" tattooed on me not only because I love the song and that line has personal significance but also partially for the irony you mentioned, eg that he didn't actually write that song!

Because the hippo is a mammal I suppose it's okay to describe pigs as "distant relatives" but hippos' closest relatives are whales.

I'm interested in this bomb off the coast of Georgia do we know how strong this bomb is? I mean, what will be the effects if it does explode underwater. will it reach the coastline? I don't live there, but is information I like to know

The man curing his OCD by shooting himself in the head doesn´t sound like BS. If you survive being shot in the head (by anyone, really), I´m pretty sure your priorities will change from that day on. It won´t matter that the one teaspoon has got the handle downwards in the cupboard while all the others got them upwards. It´ll be fine. :-)

Grew up on St. Simons. Every so often I'll look up Tybee and see if they've gotten any closer to finding that bomb.

When my son said he wanted a Bluetooth, I told him that it might look cool now, but he'd end up going to the dentist to get it removed later on. He laughed and said it was something for a cell phone. Then I had an experience with one while I was shopping for fruits and vegetables. Another shopper looked straight at me and said, "I don't like your attitude!" I told him, "I didn't say a thing to you!" Then he said, "Oh, some crazy lady at WalMart thinks I'm talking to her." When I got home, my kids explained that I had just encountered my first Bluetooth.

The most unbelieveable part about lost nukes is that the incident in the video wasn't even the only time the US lost and never recovered nukes. During the 1950s alone the US military lost and never recovered atleast six operational nukes and one test nuke consisting of TNT and uranium, but no plutonium (basically a dirty bomb). Add to this some damaged or burning bombs and a bunch of non-nuclear explosions of nuclear weapons, some accidental critical masses and partial contaminations and you'll realize that there are no "right hands" when it comes to nuclear weapons, just "wrong ones".

Several of my friends from law school (much smarter than I am) clerked for SCOTUS Justices, so I have been able to get backstage tours of the building and seen the basketball court. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to step on it, as I wasn't wearing rubber shoes, but I did get a close look from the court gym. Apparently, when they built the court, they didn't put in the underflooring common in such courts to provide cushioning and prevent injury. Combine that with some serious Type-A personalities (kind of necessary to land a clerk gig there) and they end up with a higher than normal amount of broken bones and other injuries there. I got to play kickball and flag football with some of the folks who ended up clerking, so I know firsthand that they're pretty athletic. Though lucky for me, they weren't quite so agressive in that environment. I think a few days around these men and women would dispell a few of the myths about smart folks that TV writers seem intent on perpetuating. I'm not sure I would help, as I'm not overly athletic, but like most of my classmates I don't fall into the awkward trope, nor do most B-scjool grads, programmers or engineers I know. I know that was a bit of a tangent, but in any case that basketball court is very cool. If you have a dfriend of a friend who works there, ask them to arrange a private tour. Totally worth it, and they do have an official process for doing so, so it's not a huge favor.
Paul Harrell (3 months ago)
Someone may have already wrote this, but the bomb story reminds me of the movie broken arrow. Someone asks what that means and is told it means we lost a nuclear weapon. The person then replies, "I don't know what's worse, that you lost a nuclear bomb or that it happens often enough that you have a code for it."

The first Bluetooth connection devices I ever used were shaped like a tooth and made from blue plastic. The tooth shape enabled the signal to be projected to a larger space in the room. I was sure that was a factor in the name.

You could also have mentioned that the Bluetooth symbol consists of the runes for letters h and b comprised together. (Harald Bluetooth).

The bomb likely drifted out to sea. They're not solid objects and have some buoyancy, the assumption that it would have smacked clean through the water and into the mud beneath when it's a parachute deploying device is ludicrous.

Also doctors don't report each other (and since the mistakes made are so important, other people have to pick up the slack), seeing more patients quickly makes more money than seeing them properly, and their work is rarely double-checked.
Detham (7 months ago)
your statistic about Canadian hospital deaths is misleading. Canada has a population 1/9th the size of the US. If Canada had the same population as the US at the same rate they would have 630,000 deaths from medical accidents which is higher than the US's max of 400k.

When watching the six million dollar man opening, you see an airplane do a coke bottle roll and get trashed. That was a real lifting body crash, and the pilot onboard lived.
Suicide Bummer (9 months ago)
A nuclear chain reaction is a highly focussed not least to say technical process that cannot just be 'set off' by kicking the side of it, dropping it from a height, offending its gender or throwing a grenade at it. The Manhattan Project was comprised of many a highly educated man who had no illusions they would be producing a firework.
Suicide Bummer (9 months ago)
A kick? Given the average IQ of a U.S soldier, I'd wager the USA would have accidentally wiped itself out years ago if that was the case. :D
James Meritt (9 months ago)
Suicide Bummer: implosion type, yes. And as far as I know all the US “devices” have that one-point safety. Now, the shotgun type does NOT have one-point safety and you CAN detonate it with a kick. I do not know who all uses that type.

Actually the military denied the bomb ever fell. Then the man that did it retired out of the military and did an interview explaining that he did drop the bomb and it was armed. Years later after tracking the water currents and the weather throughout the whole time this happened the pilot Tracked Down the bomb and told them where it was it's still there.
