  1. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive
    a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83
    views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
