I'm not sure where you're sitting but...

"About two percent of the manned launch/reentry attempts have killed their crew, with Soyuz and the Shuttle having almost the same death percentage rates."

Looks like it's 2 to 2 on fatal space missions and even money on number of deaths as well.

The problem with that is that the stones (Soapstone) only are really good at lightly chilling small amounts of liquid. Your Scotch/Whiskey will not be ice cold, just chilled, and only if you pour it in small quantities.

I bought my stones with that idea in mind, but it just doesn't work out. They are fantastic for what they were designed for though.

You're right how dare they, "get infected with BackDoor.Flashback.39 after a user is redirected to a bogus site from a compromised resource or via a traffic distribution system. JavaScript code is used to load a Java-applet containing an exploit."?

"According to some sources, links to more than four million compromised web-pages could be found on a Google SERP at the end of March. In addition, some posts on Apple user forums described cases of infection by BackDoor.Flashback.39 when visiting"


Gotta be careful downloading all of that "kracked shit" from manufacturer's own websites.
