Got Verizon?

Verizon is giving the feds phone records for all of its US customers

Of course if you have nothing to hide, you've got nothing to worry about. Right?

The National Security Agency is gathering telephone records of all Verizon customers — who number in the tens of millions — in the U.S., a bombshell report revealed Wednesday.
The top-secret court order, obtained by the Guardian newspaper, requires the carrier to hand over information regarding phone calls — which does not include actual conversations — on an “ongoing, daily basis” to the FBI.

I'm sure the government wouldn't use the information mischeivously.

Would they?

I'll be watching for Wings as well as The General which I've always got an eye out for.
You mentioned Buster's stunts. Wasn't it on The General that he actually did break his neck on? In one of his movies he is show getting hit by the water from a locomotive water tank driving him down on to the rails. He suffered headaches for years afterward and later an XRay showed a fractured cervical vertebra.
I may be making all that up but it sounds familiar and it has been too long sine I saw the General to remember if that was where that scene occurred.

You were close, Chupa. It was in Sherlock, Jr that he broke his neck. That was 3 years before he made The General.
