Four score and more Web sites dedicated to upcoming election

It's August 21, 1858, in Ottawa, Ill. You had planned on eating your lunch, which consists of whatever they ate in 1858, plus a box of Twinkies, but instead you are attacked by the flock of people heading to the public square. The sun is shining brightly so brightly, you decide it must be 1:55 p.m. You notice two people on stage, both men in their 40s. One of those guys looks just like Abraham Lincoln.

Web vacation won't jeopardize the real thing

Riding in a car during a long trip is a lot like sitting in front of a computer for a day.

I'm not ashamed to say I like to cook. I rarely do cook, though, because I never seem to have enough time, or enough energy, or the dog ate my homework.

Some of the stuff I cook, I make up as I go. Other things I've borrowed from my mom, and the rest I pull out of my cookbook. I never thought of looking up recipes on the Web, because if I had time to do that, why wouldn't I just pull a recipe out of the cookbook?

You must answer two extremely meaningful questions

It's scary to think there are just two questions that can determine your entire life outcome.

What's even more scary are the two questions:

1. Do you think Grimace, the big purple McDonald's guy, stands for cookies or a milkshake?
