This is even more amazing, since NBC was responsible for the Heidi Bowl, cutting away from the Jets/Raiders game in 1968 to broadcast "Heidi". The Raider came back from a big deficit to win the game in the final two minutes, and football fans were incensed. Ever since that game, networks do not switch over from the end of a live event.

Cancer is often caused by repeated small doses of a mutagen. There was a study of the cancer causing effect of soot on chimney sweeps in the 1800s, which showed a single large dose did nothing, but repeated small exposures almost always led to cancer. So I'm not that surprised it environmental. Somehow, I don't think genetic cancers would be positively selected.

Massachusetts parks had this rule for years, and there was indeed less litter. However, the problem wasn't that people didn't throw their trash away, the problem was the park service didn't empty the cans often enough. People would put trash around a full can, and that would spread due to wind and other causes. If someone came around every two hours and emptied the cans, the park would be just as clean.

If they want people to use the stairs, why not get rid of the escalator?

Hire Dusty Baker and Bruce Bochy as managers. They'll play washed up veterans who can't hit and the games will go faster.

My daughter is 19 and I still mess with her. My favorite was always answering, "I thought you had her," to the, "Where's mom?" question. One day, when she was about nine, I asked the question and got the correct response, delivered in perfect deadpan. I knew my work was done. :-)
