There seem to be enough recipes in here that I think I could manage. Of course it will require coating you with lead, mercury, silver and some other rather unsavory items.

Oh...and I thought it would be in an elegant manner, like with a magic wand or so. Nevermind then, I'll stay the way I am, at least for now.

These are both links that my AP US History teacher gave me. The second one is a little corny, but if you're in APUSH then I would reccomend taking the prep. quizzes on there, they are a real lifesaver when you're cramming for a test =P.

An interesting history of a company with which I've been involved over the past 2 decades or so. (I haven't seen the video - so no endorsement expressed or implied).
http://www.inecom.com/products/consu...tinghousefilm/

Westinghouse is a feature-length documentary about the life and times of George Westinghouse, his companies, legacy, personality, partnership with Nikola Tesla and conflict with Thomas Edison.

George Westinghouse is considered America’s greatest industrialist and the only man who would go up against Thomas Edison, and win.
. . . .
If anyone has seen it, I'd appreciate comments/thoughts.

History Magazine The official website of BBC History Magazine

I was reading an issue this morning. I found the articles informative and insightful. It seems to be an excellent resource on British history and European history, and possibly World history.
