I believe it. Our school just released a survey showing that we (1700 kids, roughly) speak no fewer than 44 different languages at home.

More US people quit their jobs in July than in any month since 2001. They figure it's going to cause salaries to increase.

Other bovines? Buffalo? Yak?
I went through that little bit of bovine country in England a while back. Beautiful country but big enough for all the beef and dairy?

As an investment scheme, however, the fortune cookie lottery is only a 4% return--and it doesn't count the cost of shelling all those fortune cookies. Just ask Mr. Salt.
