... and just when you thought you'd never find a commercial product that would clean those stubborn food stains off your dentures...

So that's how Santa keeps his sleigh from burning when he reenters the atmosphere.

I’ve been to Ny-Ålesund (population 35 but triples in summer) — it’s almost twice as far from there to Oslo (2121 km) as to the North Pole (1238 km). This is very bad news -- it means the entire planet is contaminated with seriously damaging chemicals; their flame-retardant properties pale before their endocrine disruptive properties, as we've known for a long time.

But it makes your nose glow.

I saw it warming up for the Arctic Monkeys. Helluva show.

The article isn't what you think it would be. I wondered about it because a lot of civilizations use dried dung as fuel.
Ralph's right - it's pretty dire news.

Who you callin' a retardant, Rudolph?
