Comment on Spell That? by Rich

I totally get the telepathy part. Back when I worked at Jewel, I was really good at translating weird descriptions (sometimes in broken English) into what the person wanted. My greatest feat happened when I came upon an Osco person struggling to help a woman on the grocery side. I asked if I could help, and the customer said something like, "I'm looking for those things, I can't remember what they're called, but they go by the sink." I said, "Oh, I don't know what they're called either, but come with me." As I led her off to the HandiWipes, the Osco lady just watched, dumbstruck, as we walked away.

I'll be honest - the vagueness both annoys and pleasantly challenges me. Sometimes people can't help but vague it up, but it's all the more impressive to be able to find the right answer based on hardly any real information at all. I think of it as telepathy practice. :p

Why is it so hard for people to get some simple details down before they ask vague questions?

For the record, I find The Straight Dope to be a very reliable source. Also entertaining. I've been reading it for years.

Comment on Zipping Through the Crawford Ranch Code by Mark

It may also be difficult to pinpoint the actual ZIP code because I believe the White House, Camp David, the Crawford ranch, and other places the President may receive post at have multiple ZIP codes. One of those ZIP codes is a special ZIP code known only to personal contacts so that mail and packages can get routed differently before they reach the President and the First Family. Of course, this could all be rumor and speculation found in some piece of fiction somewhere. At least one person on the Snopes forum thinks this is how it's done.

The above comment is obvious shilling, but potentially usable.

Hi there, Thanks for posting about opinion polls and stem cell research. I wanted to offer another resource for poll data by Research!America. A 2005 poll with Parade magazine showed that the majority of Americans supported embryonic stem cell research. You can check out the details of the poll here
