Pretty good overview:I was under the impression that many of them monsters Godzilla fought were not from outer space, but rather, from eggs shaken loose by earthquakes and mutated by nuclear irradiation and stuff. Am I wrong about this?

On August 6th, 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan by the United States Army. The bomb successfully exploded instantly killing about 80,000 people and destroying a majority of the physical structure of the city.Someone with a camera took a series of photographs of the post-bomb carnage. The film exposed by this photographer was brought to a cave outside of town, where it was later discovered by US serviceman Robert Capp. Capp had the film developed and hung on to the images until 1998, when he donated the film to the Hoover Archives with the provision that the photos not be reproduced for another 10 years.That was ten years ago, and the photographs are now available for you to see.

My friend Matt says that when he gets up in the morning, the first thing he does is to reach his hands skyward, extend to first and second fingers on each hand, and produce two synchronized rapid curling motions with these fingers.In so doing, everything else he does that day is “in quotes.”Have you ever noticed how often quotations are used incorrectly, and don’t you “find” this totally “annoying?”The main problem, of course, is that people “think” quotes are for “emphasis” … when they are really for the exact opposite. Something that you put in quotes (that is not a, well, an actual quote) is something that you don’t really believe. So, the following is correct:
Intelligent design is a “theory” about evolution. Well, not really.
An incorrect use of quotes would be as in the following hypothetical sign in front of a resturant:
Come on in and try our “delicious” “food”
So, well, go have some “fun” at “The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks“
No, really. Woo.
