The Beak Of The Finch
The Beak of the Finch The Bogus Logic of The Beak People who have served in the Armed Forces may be familiar with the expression, If you can't dazzle then with your brilliance, baffle them with your baloney.

Why The Miracle on Ice Marks The End of The Cold War Unlike mathematics or science, there is a lot of grey area in History and Politics. There are almost no absolutely correct answers in History due to its opinionative nature, so the dates of when events begin or end and whether or not they should have been done is very debatable. One event in history which is rarely debated is the end of the Cold War. Most Historians claim that the falling of the Berlin Wall officially marks the end of the Cold
