Do you believe NASA when they state that they destroyed the technology to return to the moon?

Yahoo is dead

Sad, really. Yahoo is dead. I met my wife in a Yahoo chat room. Yahoo chat rooms no longer exist. It used to be a huge company. Advertised on TV. "Yahoooooo!" Big deal on the stock market. No more.
