Submission + - Obama and Area 51 1

snamd writes: As we can see from this New York Times article here http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2008/12/24/washington/AP-Obama-Geek-in-Chief.html we are about to have our first President Geek.
Now imagine you are a geek and you have just become president. What is the first thing you would do? Open up the Roswell files! Do you think our new president would actively pursue this information? And would he share it (as any good geek would) with his fellow geeks?

Prescription Handguns For the Elderly and Disabled Screenshot-sm 1093

Repton writes "Thanks to the Second Amendment, even the elderly have the right to keep and bear arms. The problem is that many of the guns out there are a bit unwieldy for an older person to handle. However, the inventors of the Palm Pistol are planning to change all that with a weapon that is ideal for both the elderly and the physically disabled. In a statement submitted to Medgadget, the manufacturer, Constitution Arms, has revealed the following: 'We thought you might be interested to learn that the FDA has completed its "Device/Not a Device" determination and concluded the handgun will be listed as a Class I Medical Device.' Physicians will be able to prescribe the Palm Pistol for qualified patients who may seek reimbursement through Medicare or private health insurance companies."
