Elizabeth notes that this checks out on Snopes.com:
Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don't have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem.
When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial 1-800-FREE-411, or 1-800-373-3411 without incurring any charge at all!
This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends. This works on your home telephone as well!

|You Are 72% Massachusetts|
You're pretty Massachusetts, but you're starting to slip. Go eat a bulky roll and flip off a New Yorker.
(Who'da thunk I'd be more Massachusetts than Jay? Guess you can't take the Beantown out of the girl, no matter how long it's been since she's lived there!)
At last, well written, non-judgmental, matter-of-fact fashion advice for nerds.
(As non-judgmental as you can be when you label someone a "nerd," anyway. I probably would have chosen the phrase "fashion-impaired" instead.)

The co-inventor of the TV remote, Robert Adler, has died. Men worldwide shed a tear and share a moment of silence.
