Some of these heros prevented friggin" wars... and all they got was a lousy pink slip (or worse-much much worse).

The source has me wondering how much or how little truth is in this.

From another of the "articles" on that site, on "real" time travellers:

[quote]Pasko Kuzman is a Macedonian archaeologist whose findings are considered incredibly important in his field — oh, and he`s also a self-proclaimed time traveler. He wears multiple watches on one arm, which he says help him travel through time: one takes him back to the Bronze and Neolithic Age, one takes him to the future, and the third is "The Archeologists` Watch," which alerts him to the presence of gold. Could his archeological fame be due to actually having visited the past?[/quote]

I think the whole slideshow thing is caused by software limitations (much like what we`ve seen here on IAB in fact)
I`d guess their software doesn`t allow articles with lots of full sized pictures, so they get around it by making a slideshow with the article cut up to fit into the captions.
There are probably a few who`ve decided to stick with the slideshow in spite of software upgrades because they think it`s easier than writing and formatting a proper article, too.

Things like this are the reason I hate the human population.

I`m more curious as to how presenting things in a `slideshow` has become as popular as it is.
Am I the only one who can`t stand it? The only reason I can think of it being put in is to either increase unique page visits on a website (as opposed to unique visitors total) or for it to load more than it needs to.

I have no problem with at about half of these jerks getting what they got. The other half, not so much. They are heroes

I kinda thought they`d have mentioned Erin Brockovich.

Linda Tripp? Seriously?
