Imminent unplanned satellite re-entry

By Andrew Pollack on 02/17/2008 at 12:30 PM EST

Have no fear, FEMA is here. Our government is protecting us from the imminent unplanned satellite re-entry. Here you'll find the documents forwarded through our incident management chain of command. For those of you reading this story from outside the U.S., you can likely follow the same procedures.

The more you learn about what travels the roads and rails every day and the
nature of precautions you have to take if something goes wrong, the more

I grew up living next to a Lehigh Valley double-track mainline (they took the
line out in 1976). We'd have all sorts of strange derailments... one year it
was Miller High Life, which is definitely hazmat. Another time it was a boxcar
full of Duncan Hines cake mixes, so we had cake and muffins for about two years
afterward.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
