  1. On June 27, 2010 a man in Dallas, Texas made a gruesome discovery. When he opened his newly, purchased flag from The Dollar Tree something didn't seem right to the man. The flag had 11 extra stars where the 50 stars really should have been. Check out how the media replied...
  2. Despite its claim that it slashes profits to the bone in order to deliver "Always Low Prices," Wal-Mart banks about $7 billion a year in profits, ranking it among the most profitable entities on the planet.Of the 10 richest people in the world, five are Waltons - the ruling family of the Wal-Mart empire. S. Robson Walton is ranked by London’s "Rich List 2001" as the wealthiest human on the planet, having sacked up more than $65 billion (£45.3 billion) in personal wealth and topping Bill Gates as No. 1.
  3. Located off Martin's Lane, behind the Swim Center The Park Includes: 24 ft wide, 4 ft tall mini-ramp. 3 ft - 4 ft tall, 20 ft wide half pipe with extension. 2 ledges 3-set, 5-set Euro-gap Huge pump-hump Quarter pipes, rails, and fun boxes. The park is nicely sized. Enough room for all skaters alike. More of a design for intermediate skaters or more experienced skaters. It's FREE and it's optional to wear a helmet. Use common sense because nobody is on site for emergency purposes. If I had to rate it I would give it 3 out of 5 stars.
  4. Friday the 29th @ 9:00 to Sunday the 31st @ 11:30. Largest party in DC, let alone Georgetown. Cash Prizes for best costume and don't forget the Drink Specials. Going to be a wild time this Halloween Weekend.
  5. Ed Reed was at practice on Wednesday. When he was asked if he was going to play Sunday against the Bills he basically said, he felt good but wasn't exactly sure if he would be active. On a good note though, Baltimore has a bye week after their game with Baltimore. So, expect the monster to be back in 2 weeks for sure!
  6. Security- No matter how bad the economy is there will always be a need for policemen, fireman, etc. Health care- Once again it does not matter how bad the times are we will constantly need highly trained nurses, doctors, physical therapists, etc. Education- The economy may be going downhill, but the population isn't. This only means teachers and principals will almost never lose their jobs in poor times. Food Industry- No one can go without eating even during the recession. People will start going to cheaper take-away restaurants, rather than all the highly priced restaurants that will probably fall during these times. Handyman Services- This varies from electricians to carpenters, even to automobile mechanics. Skilled professionals in these so called "trades" will still need to make emergency repairs.
  7. Personally I believe ice cream and bacon should stay apart from one another on the food pyramid. How does everyone else feel about this type of desert (if you can even call it that). Please let me know how this appeals to you!
  8. Just last month two 8ft Bull sharks were caught in the Potomac River. Could this have anything to do with this insane weather caused by Global Warming? Yes, bull sharks can survive in fresh water. It is said to be that the reason the sharks are found in these abnormal places is because they are looking for food resources. Even though the professional biologists will tell you it is very rare to find one of these amazing beasts in a river like the Potomac. So, what is the cause of these prominently salt water fish doing in the fresh water of the Potomac River?
  9. I have done some research on this. The only thing I could find was that saying your head will blow up is basically a myth. However, I did read if you hold in a sneeze, one too many times, could cause a problem with your ear drum. It could cause permanent damage and possibly ear infections. Could anyone help out and let me know if this about blowing your ear drums is true please let me know, or if it is even a danger at all to hold in a sneeze!

  11. When asked how they were going to reform Social Security Boehner is quoted as saying "I don't know." Soooo, there's your answer.
  12. Praise the Period, crave the Comma, and perceive the parentheses. September 24, 2010 is the 7th Annual National Punctuation Day created by Jeff Rubin. The holiday actually first began August 22nd for the first couple of years. Then in 2006 it was changed to today's date to place it during the school year nationwide. This day was created to remind children and adults that punctuation is still an important necessity in everyday life. Especially during the modern age of text messaging, facebook, and twitter. So get out there and use that punctuation properly.
  13. Bad coaching could have been the cause. But once the O-line is built back up the team will start doing well offensively...The secondary of the Cowboys still needs help, Mike Jenkins can't do everything. Personally I don't think the Redskins are ready for a winning season. They still need a lot of help.
  14. Can the Redskins go 2-0? The Texans will be coming to Washington after their win against Peyton Manning and the Colts. The Cowboys Offensive line was said to be the reason the Cowboys lost that game, they punished themselves with the unnecessary penalties. The Redskins will be matched up against a powerful running and passing game led by Matt Schaub. The defense must step up if they wanna start this year with a 2-0 record. Don't forget Donovan McNabb has to start putting the points on the board, everything can't be done by the kicker. The game is Sunday at 4:15 on CBS if you can't make it to the Washington home game!!
