“KAABOOOOM”! Can You Hear Me Now?

That was the basic idea, it seems, behind the gasoline and nail filled cars parked in downtown London. If not for a lucky design flaw in the detonation system in an otherwise ingenious car bomb, the long distance triggering signal from halfway around the world would have not only detonated the bombs killing or injurying […]

Classic Biased Poll

The ARG poll out that claims nearly half the country wants to impeach Bush and over half wants to impeach Cheney is as bogus as they come. It must be a push poll with the some weasely wording, after a list of potential ‘crimes’, along the lines of ‘given these claims would you consider impeachment’ […]
