    Despite the prevalence of legal trials on TV, over 98% of civil lawsuits in the U.S. federal courts settle before trial ever begins.

    Agreed!

    In a quote from the New York Post discussing her horrific new “celebrity” cooking show, Rachael said:


    Going in, I knew that Cheech and LDP were good cooks, but a lot of them just wanted to become better at working with food and consider themselves foodies because they are eaties… they eat a lot.

    Congratulations to Rachael Ray for finally managing to find word more annoying than “foodies.”

    Upon popular belief, casinos have absolutly no say in when and where a machine is going to hit a jp. There is no button, program or anyone who has a say.

    Modern slot machines are nothing but computers with a monitor.

    On 12 always hit against the dealer 2 or 3 anything above is a stand. It's a strange rule, but 2s are deadly. Here's a basic strategy chart if you're interested

    I just found this thread and found it enjoyable cp to the op. a couple of things peole might find interesting from mine--

    They are currently testing out VacuumVators in the residential market. I assume it will eventually atleast replace Hydraulic Elevators in the commercial one. It is what it sounds like an elevator (capsule) in a tube that moves based on changing the pressure above the Elevator just like the bank tube only way bigger. It will eliminate the need for a lot of the bigger equipment and more concentrated electronics. They already have working models going into residential houses covering a couple floors.

    They are installing tv monitors in elevators, I installed the first ones on the east coast. They run off antennas on the top which commuicate with antennas at the top of the hatch which go to computer in machine room hooked to dish on roof. They are mostly for high end hotels with convention centers right now and u can rent out advertising time to run while people at convention are riding the elevator.

    You can sue a Elevator Company and win Even if you are caught on Camera running down an up escalator when you get hurt

    The cables on the Tower of Terror ride at mgm studios are changed out every 6 weeks. Usually if they are ever changed out at all it is after many years.

    donts---dont take dogs on escalators or moving walks they don't know to step up at the end and the results are hideous

    don't where those rubber shoes that have become the fad ( i forget the name) on an escalator or moving walk, I have retrieved more of them that get eaten than all others combined. The rubber likes to grab and suck in

    don't sit on escalator or moving walk even though it is not moving, local hotel/attraction employees like to start them up without looking and you go flying

    don't think that if you get stuck with an elevator man in the elevator you are lucky. he can only sit and wait like you when on the inside and there is a good chance he is the only one in the area at the time and wait will be longer since he is probably servicing his route at the time

    thats all I can think about on the top of my head, like the thread, i have read some interesting answeres cp to op

    It is also fire code (at least here in IL) to have sprinkler heads INSIDE commercial kitchen freezers.

    I worked at UPS like 8 years ago when I was 19 and my job was to unload trucks. It sucked. Anyways, apparently you gotta RUSH unload these trucks because of the "express delivery" packages had to be out early and I seen the manager even come on to the trucks and just start throwing packages everywhere. Stuff was falling off the truck, getting crammed, broken, bent... everything. It was retarded. I basically quit after seeing this and never used their services again.
