The Rock and Roll Hall of Shame
William Shatner isn't the only celebrity who likes to sing his little heart out.

Don't know the first thing about buying a ferret?

Stupid Scanner Tricks
Cell phones are not only annoying to the average Joe, but they offer little
in ways of privacy. As a matter of fact, if you know the tricks of the trade, you
can listen in on cell phone conversations with your scanner, ham radio
or CB. One of the other tricks includes showing you how you can hang up someone's call
if you're within 30 feet of the caller.
