Michigan troopers spotted a driver going 79 in a 70mph zone and got ready to pull him over for a run-of-the-mill speeding ticket. Next thing they know, the old Dodge station wagon had sped up to a staggering 153mph on the I-75, reports CBS Detroit. (This makes me wonder what sort of engine was in this thing?)
Most experts agree, however, that losing Ramadi – in the heartland of Sunni Iraq -- raises serious questions about the efficacy of the current U.S. strategy.
We here at Perspective wonder why it took so long since it's common knowledge that all Leprechauns are gay.
After all, why do you think they keep talking about their "Lucky Charms!"
AND FINALLY: This is one thing I'm NOT confused about!
We got THIS in the mail today!
WATCH OUT NEW AREA CODE
Costly NEW AREA CODE: READ AND PASS ALONG - 809 Area Code . We actually received a call last week from the 809 area code . The woman said 'Hey, this is Karen. Sorry I missed you- get back to us quickly. I have something important to tell you.' Then she repeated a phone number beginning with 809.
We did not respond. Then this week, we received the following e-mail: Do Not DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876 from the U.S. or Canada THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION PROVIDED TO US BY AT&T. DON'T EVER DIAL AREA CODE 809. This one is being distributed all over the US ... This is pretty scary, especially given the way they try to get you to call.
Be sure you read this and pass it on.
They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a family member who has been ill or to tell you someone has been arrested, died, or to let you know you have won a wonderful prize, etc.
In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right away.
Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return these calls. If you call from the U.S. or Canada , you will apparently be charged a minimum of $2425 per-minute. And you'll also get a long recorded message. (The point is, they will try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges. )
