Blackbeard's ship found?

More clues point to Blackbeard?s last ship.

>> Researchers Tuesday raised another cannon from an underwater site 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) offshore, and hope it will help prove the sunken wreckage was once the flagship of the notorious pirate Blackbeard.

?We knew it the first day and we still have absolutely no doubt that she?s the Queen Anne?s Revenge,? said Phil Masters, whose Florida-based research firm located the wreckage in 1996. ?There is no other ship lost at Beaufort Inlet with anything more than 10 cannon, nor more than 110 tons that we know of.?

The team has recovered more than 20 cannons from the site so far; since its discovery, more than 16,000 artifacts have been retrieved from the wreck. <<

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.
