Violent Bathroom Tendencies

As I have been in many bathrooms at work over the years I have noticed kind of a ridiculous trend. I often find that many, when, done at the urinal, slam the handle to flush rather than just pushing it normally. I also find that they kick the handle when using the sit down toilets. I understand using a foot, since bathrooms can be disgusting and others have bad bathroom habit and etiquette, which we can discuss later, but flushing with your foot and kicking the handle to flush it are two different things.

The President of the United States Using a Blackberry

I'm hearing a lot of talk about the President of the United States using a Blackberry. Some are saying that there is a concern that Blackberry servers are in Canada. I agree that U.S. data on foreign servers might be a concern, but are we saying that we trust big corporations with presidential data? With outsourcing, couldn't a US server be in a foreign hosting location? Even if it is in the U.S., I don't trust corporate American to be responsible if they think they can get away with not being responsible and it gets them gain.
