It was the most awesome thing, or something like that.

I believe this was on the blue in the last month or two, but my Meta-fu is failing me. Head-to-head challenge of two randomly selected items. I think it was called something like "Most Awesome Thing in the Universe," but of course that's not especially helpful as a search. You voted on one and another two popped up. I think "the internet" was winning at the time. I found it strangely addicting -- mostly because of the in-your-face sound effects -- but some Mefiers were all "meh." I need to find it again and can't. Hope me!

I'd like to recognize more languages

Okay, so I was waiting at the train station and I realized that two people a short distance away were speaking in a language I didn't recognize. And it got me thinking. I can probably recognize fewer then 10 languages by ear (note this doesn't necessarily mean I can understand what's being said, just that I know what language it's in). I'd like to be able to recognize many, many languages so when I hear people talking I'll know what language they're speaking even though I won't have a clue what they're actually saying.

I came home from work this afternoon to find a dead rat lying in the spot where my cat likes to leave his 'catch of the day' for my approval. Usually he catches small squirrels, moles and birds, and this is the first (wild) rat I've ever seen in my life, alive or dead. I am super grossed out and horrified, and now I'm worried that there are rats around that could get in my house! (Although, I am a bit less worried than I would be if I didn't have a cat that can catch them!) [more inside]

Well, this sucks a bit, but I'm wondering what it really means...

When you were involuntarily recalled, what was the process? Did they tell you right away, or did they call you in from the IRR (individual ready reserve) for 'annual training' and then break it to you there? Marine Corps, if it helps.
