RE: Iran Unveils Drone "Bomber"

"I'm going to cause a shit bomb here but- they're not. Saudi Arabia, Oman, The UAE, Qatar and Brunai do more than Israel to support NATO/US operations in the M.East. "

If I am not mistaken wasn't most of the 9-11 terrorist Saudi's?

RE: Hybrid Cars, Myth Vs Reality.

Just drove a Toyota Prius on a test drive. Handled pretty good.It was also pretty well equipped,all leather,lumbar heated seats. The battery was warrented for 10 years so I would not worry about that. Going to check out a few others but the Prius really surprised me.

I have used a Norelco for many years and I think its the best out there! Once you learn how to shave with one,it is faster and closer than any razor. Use Williams Lectric Shave lotion with it and you will love it! You do have a 60 day trial period to turn it back in if you don't like it.
