I was pretty astounded by that report myself. Those Russians seem to have a poor concept of the meaning of fear......Here is the link.

No worries -- I had just quoted BeemerBoy's link w/o actually titling it out when you had posted.

The note to check the front page was directed to everyone who might not have realized that I was updating the category entries as it goes along.


Keep the nominations coming in, folks!



I seem to remember a kickass thread from the Idaho (or was it Oregon? Or Washington?) desert a while back? Anyone know what I'm talking about?
