CIA Investigating How To Manipulate Climate Change
2013-07-19 15:51:48

In a move that sounds vaguely reminiscent of one of Dr. Evil’s plans, the CIA is planning to investigate how humans could potentially control the global climate.


Word of the Day
bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
