    Some Granite Countertops Emit Radiation & Radon

    Very interesting read for those with, or planning to get, granite countertops. While not all granites emit radiation and/or radon, it's surprising to hear it's in such measurable quantities. Of course you're probably safe unless you sleep on your countertop, but nonetheless interesting...

    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I think the bigger challenge is to find something that won't give you cancer.

    Ah yes.

    At first I had the picture of a urinal cake in my mind but that wasn't right. Stupid urinal cakes, in high school we almost succeeded in getting a hole in the middle of one in the locker room
