Yesterday I turned on my Xbox 360 to play some Halo 4 and to my surprise Microsoft put up a notice that they would reveal their next console. While it's code-name had been Durango (seriously?) fans had often referred to it as the Xbox 720. And now it's called the Xbox One. Not to be confused with the original Xbox. The One means the one stop for all your entertainment...or at least in Microsoft's dreams.
The Third Amendment of the United States Constitution forbids any soldier from forcing a home-owner to provide him shelter and food without consent.

In the course of our American history, 14 presidents (and other presidents who tried to join) have been members of the Freemasons. The presidents include George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, Howard Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Gerald Ford. The Freemasons are a fraternal organization dating back to 1390 or earlier.
