Tuesday Night Open Thread

The iPhone 6 will be in stores on Friay. You can also preorder. It comes in two sizes. You can compare models here. If you are conflicted about which one to buy, read this. And if you currently have a grandfathered-in unlimited data plan, make sure it's still available if you buy a new phone. I'm going to take a pass for now since Apple gave me a new iPhone 5S for free 2 weeks ago when mine died. I also think it's too big.

Our last open thread is full. Here's another one, all topics welcome.

    If that's true i sure hope the  find who did it.

    friend from Mlles City was Maurice Hilleman. Developed 36 children's vaccines. "Of the 14 vaccines routinely recommended in current vaccine schedules, he developed eight: those for measles, mumps, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, chickenpox, meningitis, pneumonia and Haemophilus influenzae bacteria."
