It's Pronounced "Pah-vert." You povert.


Check out this fascinating (and depressing) story about veterans of the Iraq wars who are very sick, probably due to exposure to depleted uranium. An excerpt:

Now 29, he’s had growths removed from his brain. He has suffered a small stroke — one morning he was shaving, having put down the razor to rinse his face. In that moment, he blacked out and pitched over. “Just as quickly as I lost consciousness, I regained it,” he said. “Except I couldn’t move the right side of my body.” After about 15 minutes, the paralysis ebbed.


I should mention that my grandfather (actually, my grandmother’s last husband) died of cancer due to exposure to Agent Orange.
