In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, 67 House Republicans voted against a relief package to provide aid for storm victims whose houses were flooded, wind-whipped or burned to the ground.

I can't claim to be up to date with the situation, but this strikes me as 'disgusting'. Of course money is tight and the national deficit must play a part with regard to how much aid is possible, but some things must take priority, surely?

But before they voted against the aid package, they voted against extending tax breaks for working Americans and voted to spend more money for lawyers to defend discrimination against gay people by lobbying for the Defense of Marriage Act.

people first began dying from diabetes in 1930s

Snake hunters are arriving in droves in Florida to take part in the “Python Challenge” (nothing to do with the computer language). For a $25 fee, serpent searchers can win a $1500 reward for catching the biggest number of the enormous Burmese pythons who are swarming the Florida Everglades and threaden the native wild life there.

4-5 million animals die in shelters each year.

Java (not the drink) is responsible for 50 percent of all cyberattacks last year, followed by Adobe software with 28 percent. Microsoft software is only 3 percent.

Oracle is considered to do a poor job with Java security issues.

@ZZucker, i have heard about the "Java security" news.

The world's tallest man was 8'11. (his name is robert wadlow and picture someone like him in the NBA, if he had no problems with his health... he will make Shaq and Yao Ming look tiny)

They probably died of diabetes before this but just couldn't identify the cause.

On this day in 1924 in Chicago the first all-white Dalmation was spotted.

The shortest person in the NBA currently is Nate Robinson – 5’9" and the shortest player ever was Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues – 5’3”

In the early 1920s, a citizens' group proposed legislation requiring

  • permits to carry concealed weapons
  • increased prison sentences for crimes involving guns
  • citizenship as a requirement to own a handgun
  • a waiting period between buying a gun and receiving it
  • gun dealers to provide police with details of all gun sales

That group was the National Rifle Association.

Thomas Jefferson wrote that all men are created equal, yet he owned slaves.

Same thing for Patrick (Give me liberty or give me death) Henry.

The most well known logo is the nike "swoosh" logo.

Because of the length of nerves from the brain to the extremities, the taller a person gets the slower he/she responds. The body's information highway is rather slow.

The most prestegious university is MIT.

@LastMitch, that is quite debatable actually... many say Harvard, Stanford, Yale, MIT, Colombia, etc. These schools are best at developing their own things...

For example, Harvard creates leaders, Stanford creates companies, Yale is best in law, MIT is best in computers (it maybe math), Colombia produces the best Wallstreet people... so yeah, it is debatable if you just say, "MIT is the most prestigious"... but if you say MIT is best in this, i guess that won't be as debatable.

Harvard University has the highest Endownment

Harvard University is pretty.
