NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Garmin is recalling 1.25 million GPS devices, most of which were sold in America, because their batteries could overheat and cause fires, the company said Thursday. The affected units contain batteries made by a third-party supplier, and almost 800,000 were sold in America.

By carrying out CT scans of King Tutankhamun‘s mummy, we were able in 2005 to show that he did not die from a blow to the head, as many people believed. Our analysis revealed that a hole in the back of his skull had been made during the mummification process. The study also showed that Tutankhamun died when he was only 19—perhaps soon after he suffered a fracture to his left leg. But there are mysteries surrounding Tutankhamun that even a CT scanner cannot reveal. Now we have probed even deeper into his mummy and returned with extraordinary revelations about his life, his birth, and his death.

Ted Olson on Fox News « Topofmyhead’s Blog

Check this out from TopOfMyHead‘s blog.  Ted Olsen is a conservative lawyer that successfully argued for the federal ruling that overturned California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriages.

I can’t determine if Chris Wallace is being deliberately obtuse or playing the Devil’s Advocate.  Either way, a conservative lawyer speaking up this way will have the Tea Baggers shitting in their pants.

BTW: Olson made Chris Wallace look like the ass he is.  I may have to re-phrase my “All Republicans are assholes” to “Most Republicans are assholes”.

Saying “Oh… shit!” is about right
