  1. Willa Wertheimer:

    Although I ’m terribly sad, the knowing is so much better, it seemed like a long shot for a kid living on the fringe, after 35 years.

  2. Mike Bailey:

    If you look ahead, It's hard to see the Apple car being the next big thing in the way that, say, cloud has been for Microsoft and Google. But then again, no one really saw cloud coming, this could be really interesting for Apple, but it seems like a long shot.

  3. David Oranchak:

    Zodiac Killer was incredible. It was a big shock, I never really thought we'd find anything because I had grown so used to failure, when I first started, I used to get excited when I would see some words come through -- they were like false positives, phantoms. I had grown used to that. It was a long shot -- we didn't even really know if there was a message.

  4. Tom Sawyer:

    Then my Uncle Randy, who’s my dad’s twin brother, died just before last year’s bowhunt, so Dad and I just didn’t feel up to it last fall; the three of us had always done everything together. But this year we were ready. We were hunting this new property in Missouri, and the activity seemed to all be happening on this remote section of the farm, where some CRP met a creek. I went back there and tucked in to a patch of willows, right on the ground. I rattled and had four small bucks trot right in and never see me, so I liked the setup. A while later, a big doe came out in the grass—and right behind her was this giant. I had one long shot at him but it was windy and I passed it. He was walking away when I rattled once, and he ignored it. Then I looked up to the sky and said, ‘Bring him in to me Uncle Randy.’ I hit the horns hard, and the buck spun around and walked right in for the shot. The biggest buck I’d shot before him was 140 inches, and I like to think my uncle had a big part of this special buck.

  5. Simon Gravel:

    I'm not aware of anyone that has done such a comprehensive job of putting these things together, by a long shot, it's really big progress.
