Poorly thought out title leads to semi-interesting article about the blood pressure benefits from sunlight. Headlines that make you facepalm; share if you got them.

Dunno about facepalm, but high school humor is always appreciated, whether intentional or not.

Write it in English, not in Pentagonese. It's not a launcher, rifle cartridge, 7.62mm; it's a rifle. Call it a compass, not a direction-finding module. And if someone insists on being called AdcomphibsPac, the Fact File should explain to those not gifted in garblespeak that he's talking about the administrative office of the communication services for amphibious forces in the Pacific.

Well it was 85% accurate. they tried it out on some of my more creative misspellings, and the damned thing exploded. They're still finding pieces of it.

Aren't you assuming something? Or, more to the point, aren't they assuming something?
