Here is a useless bit of trivia I have come across today:

e t a o i n s r h l d c u m f p g w y b v k x j q z This is the frequency with which letters are used in the English language ranging from the most common (on the left) to least common (on the right)

And just to add an aside to that, did you know that over half of ALL words in the English language finish in e, t, d or s

With Regret!

Whitney Houston's death, while a sad thing, was the direct result of very unwise life choices.

It dominated the news.

Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a
substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a
celebrity drug addict and thief.

Amy Winehouse’s story was all over the papers and shoved down our throats as she was a singer and ‘celebrity’ and a substance abuser.

Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian's stupid wedding [and short-lived marriage] was shoved down our throats. While the following

Justin Allen 23
Brett Linley 29
Matthew Weikert 29
Justus Bartett 27
Dave Santos 21
Jesse Reed 26
Matthew Johnson 21
Zachary Fisher 24
Brandon King 23
Christopher Goeke 23
and Sheldon Tate 27...

are all British Royal Marines who gave their lives last month for you. There is no media for them; not even a mention of their names.

Honour THEM by sending this on. I did, will you?

JOHN it is a sad day when no recognition is spent on our troops the only way to publish this is to take it out in the form of an advertisement in one of the rags so that this country will recognise them and we would be charged for the add it makes me sick some of the crap that sells papers!!!!! if the likes of beckham was to fart in public it would be flashed around the world and on the front pages? lets make some news pull out troops out of there and leave them to butcher each other nothing we do will ever change that shite heap out there? it's old men that start wars it's the young that do the dieing.JP
