Thought for the day

"We're so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody's going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. We're gonna save the fuckin' planet? . . . And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin' great. It's been here over four billion years . . . The planet isn't goin' anywhere, folks. We are! We're goin' away. Pack your shit, we're goin' away. And we won't leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake." -- George Carlin

The Hidden Camp We know that Camp David sits in a rural part of Frederick County in Maryland, but the exact location is kept secret for security reasons. In fact, it was not included in any maps until recently, when Google Earth satellite maps made it impossible to hide. Real David When Franklin D. Roosevelt founded Camp David during his presidency, he called the place Shangri-La, named after the mythical Tibetan paradise, but Eisenhower thought the name sounded too fancy and un-American. was. After being elected, he named the retreat after his grandson, David Eisenhower.
