The Most Famous Ladie's Room

by James Denison / January 1, 2015 3:04 AM PST
"The piece of history Bachmann says fascinates her is that the current ladies room was where former President, Rep. John Quincy Adams died in February of 1848. He collapsed following one of his famous anti slavery speeches in Statuary Hall, which was then the House floor.

"He'd been president, and he was asked to run for Congress specifically to fight against slavery. And he was all worn out, as most presidents are, but he was so moved by slavery he came back," Bachmann said. "And for over twenty years, he stood over here, and every single day he stood up with his petition to stop slavery. And every day he was booed down and hated, hated, hated by his fellow Congressmen. Until finally at the very end of his life, he stood up again with his petition, and collapsed."

She said the couch where Adams died is still in the ladies' restroom."

They're offended AND the "ladies" don't know what to do with it?

DUH?

If someone had an accident.....it would be replaced?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
