Dumbest Poll Ever

CNN always has silly polls on their website but the one they are running right now really has me scratching my head. How do you disguise yourself as a Canadian? Dress like a Mountie? Wear ice skates? Tack on “Eh” at the end of every friggin sentence?

Update: Closing down comments on this post. It isn’t worth the effort to take the time to ban people for personal attacks on each other. For those of you who want to comment further and absolutely have to be heard, sign up for the forum and start a thread under Cynical-C rants. All I ask is to keep the discussion civilized.

The Civil War Sailor and Soldier Database

Very nice.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System is a computerized database containing very basic facts about servicemen who served on both sides during the Civil War. The initial focus of the CWSS is the Names Index Project, a project to enter names and other basic information from 6.3 million soldier records in the National Archives. The facts about the soldiers were entered from records that are indexed to many millions of other documents about Union and Confederate Civil War soldiers maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration.
