Sunken Treasure

HMS Victory

A shipwreck thought to have gold worth hundreds of millions of dollars on board has been found in the U.K.’s English Channel.

The HMS Victory sank in a storm in 1744. Its location was a mystery for years, until a team of marine experts from Florida discovered it in May 2008.

Odyssey Marine Exploration uncovered the shipwreck 100 km from where the ship was believed to have sunk all those years ago, near the Channel Islands.

While the company has to give any treasure found back to the British government, it does expect a reward for its work.

    I think that some of the musicians that you listed today are just trying to get hip with the kids in society today, so that they can sell more albums and such. There are some outstanding songs out there that do have lots of meaning, like Superheroes by The Script. But then Booty by Iggy and Jennifer wasn't so good, didn't have meaning. So I think it's just a matter of personal opinion.

    i got home late last night and got to bed about 3:00 or so i took some sleep aids just because i was excited for Christmas day anyways i randomly woke up at 6:00 AM (i don't know why i did but i went back to sleep) but while i was awake i heard this faint sound of something on the roof it sounded like fain foot steps that were muffled but i also heard the sound of a plate clanking and out of the blue i heard this faint sound of a jingle bell jingling i was so out of it that i was kinda careless to what was going on but  at the same time was surprised then the next morning i told my mom "i heard Santa last night " and she replied "trippy" and i thought "i know" BELIEVE

He used to get into fights with the moderators, even. Eventually, after like a year, he got kicked. They won't ban you right away for a minor offense. Just enjoy yourself, and if you get in trouble, well, you know for next time. Was it Black Baron? LOL. Of course he got kicked. He was a jerk.
