Aqua Regia ("Royal Water") was named by alchemists. It is notable because it will dissolve gold, which is unaffected by all common (and known in the Renaissance) acids.Mike.K.
About the Obama girls and the staffer that prayed. As Charlie Pierce pointed out, she talked to her parents (She's 31), prayed to Jesus.... and then still got the apology wrong!. She never apologized to either the girls or their parents. Lady, you crammed for the final after you flunked the test, and you STILL can't get it right!
I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
