I don't know how long Mr. Brumbaugh will keep this posted, but it's a very intersting essay on democracy by Robert Kaplan, from the Atlantic Monthly, December 1997. North Penn High School | Brumbaugh, Frank Samuel | Was Democracy Just a Moment?

While looking for some information on Sulfuric Acid manufacturing in Peru, I came across this article, Gregory T. Cushman | "the most valuable birds in the world": international conservation SCIENCE AND THE REVIVAL OF PERU'S GUANO INDUSTRY, 1909–1965 | Environmental History, 10.3 | The History Cooperative. There is much about history that is hidden beneath the shiny surface.

I went to Fertilizer Latin America 2007 in Miami over the last couple of days. It was kind of a nightmare trip because flights (in particular US Airways) delayed due to the bad weather in the northeastern US on March 16 & 17. I did have a nice dinner at the Globe Cafe & Bar in Coral Gables. My co-worker & I split a Pan Seared Wasabi Yellowfin Tuna with a Yellowfin Tuna special that was on the menu. He had a mojito, which he thoroughly enjoyed, while I simply had a pint of Guinness.
The highlight of my trip was sitting behind Vai Sikahema on the flight back to Philadelphia. I overheard him tell another passenger that he was in Miami to see his son play in a baseball tournament. He was very friendly and personable. In an almost cliche moment, he had milk and cookies for his snack on the plane (as opposed to my degenerate Diet Pepsi & M&M's).

Vai's pro football stat's.
Interruption - gtg - more later? Probably not

The Super Stunt - this is semi-interesting, even though the prank is a hoax. That is to say that the elaborate description that makes up the site is a fabrication. They didn't really prank the Super Bowl.

Golf Simulator for PC, Mac and PS2 - Virtual Golf Simulation from Electric~Spin. This looks really cool. It's pricy & I'm not sure where I would set it up, either, but it looks really cool.

Helium - Where Knowledge Rules - Another "Answers" type site. Maybe this one will work better than Yahoo! Answers or the Amazon thing, but at first glance, it's kind of lame.
