Many publications have advice columnists, but none has our old friend Colonel Manners (ret.), whose experience in military and surveillance matters is evident from his impressive CV (unfortunately, a classified document).
Fifty seems to be a popular number for lists. But why should 50 Shades of Grey get all the attention? In celebration of American Thanksgiving, I bring you the listapalooza "50 Shades of Turkey." An assortment of questionable, yet edible, turkey dishes.
Six thousand years ago, Jesus' dad formed untold universes in order to designate the mid-latitude region of the North American landmass as the only important place in a trillion galaxies. Everybody knows that.
