Hi, Gearup.

Well, for starters Hamilton never would have made the Louisiana Purchase. I'd consider that a tragic alteration to history, wouldn't you? As for Burr, he was *supposed* to be the VP candidate, but got ambitious after the tie vote and didn't step aside as originally agreed -- the mess led to the 12th Amendment and the Presidential ticket.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
