But sometimes, when you’ve lost them. They’re gone.

Don’t worry, you can get them replaced (that’s what I do…replace lost car keys) and after a little bit of embarrassment (and a little bit of cash), you’ve got another set of keys and you’re on your way.
It’s a simple thing to recover from lost car keys (other things lost like a license or credit card, not so easy).

The 35-year-old began to fill a tanker with water, a standard safety procedure that forces flammable vapor out of the container. He returned an hour later to check whether the water level was high enough to proceed. But he had trouble deciding, because it was so DARK inside the tanker. Read more..
Have you seen our recent flashlight giveaway promotion? I guess Manoel didn’t.
(July 2011, New York) Protesting motorcycle helmet laws, an Onondaga, NY man was participating in a bare-noggin protest ride when he was killed via flipping over the handlebars. The motorcycle accident injured the noggin of Mr. Contos, 55, fatally damaging a brain that was unable to determine the physics of the situation. Read more…
