Presby is only a 5 minute drive from places where stabbings and gunshots are common. One of my mom's friends lost her son from a gunshot basically on the doorstep of Presby. There's a handful of other hospitals next door too (Magee, Mercy, Shadyside, etc). Something like this may have saved his life.

I was always placing my bets on advertising the 5th piece from this: New slogan: "Gotta love getting some juicy tail at KFC!" Subheader: "For a limited time, get your tail with or without a bone!" Artificial chicken for the foreseeable future is as real as Robot Chicken.

Android already supports WebM ( I'm thinking this is more of a "should we care about the people with iPhones?" My answer would be "no." That'll add more pressure on Apple to not be jackasses w/ their mobile OS.

Four is unlucky in Japan because it can be pronounced "shi". Seven is also unlucky because that can pronounced "shichi". Why is this bad? "Shi" is a homophone for "death". Hence, they "invented" alternate ways to pronounce both. For #4, it's "yon". For #7, it's "nana". Simple as that, the entire Japanese society was able to cheat death. (BTW, why does /. not allow me to add kanji to this post? I feel less otaku...)

This place just isn't big enough for all of us. We've got to find a way off this planet.
