I only had 10 of those, and I had to include a couple of "not sure".

There's many things I think should be there, but ok, they did say "some".

Found the story

A dispute between a building owner and a car dealer in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, has led to a pickup truck becoming encased in concrete. The building owner ordered the concrete, while the man responsible for the vehicle refused to move it. A complaint was filed, but when a tow company arrived to move the vehicle, it was gone -but the truck was later returned to the same spot.

The car dealer claims that the area is a public street, and the building owner has no control over it. The building owner disagreed, and had the construction company pave the driveway on Wednesday while the vehicle sat there in the middle of it. The next words were about a lawsuit. The original story is in Portuguese.

Cool idea.

Maybe they should held off on the Columbines, though.

Kids each had/have one. Leapsters too. Think DS for little kids but centered on education instead of games. Mine have moved on. Started with LeapDevices, then DSes, iPod Touch and now hand-me-down iPhones.

When I went to visit mom the other weekend, my grand-niece looked up from her iPad and asked me if I'd brought her a Xmas present. I told her, no, and I didn't have an iPad.

my grandfather-in-law, who served in the royal navy during wwii and saw more combat than either of us could imagine and was tough. as. nails. would always cry when he he heard that song

always

it's not meant to be a frigging blueprint, man, just a statement of ideals
