What clashes? What colors don't go together? What can't you wear with what? One color with another? Stripes and more stripes? Mixing patterns? This is a tough question to answer, as there are very few hard and fast rules. Even old rules like no pots and stripes can be thrown out if a good balance is struck. Successful pattern-mixing truly elevates your outfit to the next level — it says you're a person who likes to take a risk, has confidence in their ability to assemble an outfit, and pays attention to the details.
Some of you hardier types might keep the grill going all winter long, but most of us take a few-month hiatus from the art of outdoor open-flame cooking when the weather gets cold. However, now it's mid-May, which means that no matter where you live the weather is improving, and barbecue season is once again upon us. Therefore, we're going to get in the mood for grilling out with this list of barbecue gadgets. Some are must-haves; others are pretty ridiculous.
Lonsdale is a boxing, mixed martial arts and clothing brand that was founded in London, England in 1960. Ex-boxer Bernard Hart started the brand as a boxing equipment company, but it eventually branched out into clothing as well. The company is named after Hugh Cecil Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale, who in 1891 set up the first organised boxing matches with gloves, following the deaths of three boxers in bare knuckle fights. On 25 March 2010, Lonsdale London celebrated the 50th anniversary of the brand by holding the Lonsdale Challenge at the Liberty Boxing Gym in Nottingham, England. The event featured Lonsdale-sponsored boxers Carl Froch, James DeGale and Tony Jefferies in various boxing-related challenges.
Almost every pro athlete has played through painful injuries. In fact, depending on the sport, some are constantly playing through painful injuries. Nevertheless, some instances of athletes playing through injuries are more notable than others, whether it's because of the extent of the injury or the circumstances surrounding it. And today we're going to take a look at some of these. Be advised, however, this following list is not intended to be all inclusive. There are way too many cases of athletes soldiering on through the pain to list every single one. However, the examples here are definitely notable and worthy of praise.
And from the HOW THE FUCK DID I NOT NOITCE THAT department:
also on that burnout workout video that you posted, did you notice the dude taking a shit at the 12 sec mark??? Will
Okay, first off, I LOVED that workout video with the hot brunette, but in the first minute, am I the only person who's noticed that guy on the crapper? Have an awesome Memorial Day weekend! Joel
A linchpin, also spelled linch pin, lynchpin, or lynch pin, is a fastener used to prevent a wheel or other part from sliding off the axle upon which it is riding. The word is first attested in the 14th century and derives from Middle English elements meaning "axletree pin". Securing implements onto the three-point hitch of a boat is an example of application. Linchpins may also be used in place of an R-clip for securing hitch pins.
Dr. Henry Jay Heimlich is an American physician who has received credit as the inventor of abdominal thrusts, more commonly known as the Heimlich maneuver, though debate continues over his role in the development of the procedure. Heimlich first published his views about the maneuver in a June 1974 informal article in Emergency Medicine entitled, "Pop Goes the Cafe Coronary". Performing abdominal thrusts involves a rescuer standing behind a patient and using his or her hands to exert pressure on the bottom of the diaphragm. This compresses the lungs and exerts pressure on any object lodged in the trachea, hopefully expelling it. This amounts to an artificial cough.
In late March of 2011, Smirnov, 20, drove from British Columbia to Seattle, Washington in to purchase a weapon. Via Armslist.com, a gun website that links gun sellers with potential buyers, Smirnov contacted Benedict Ladera, from Kent, Washington, expressing interest in a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber pistol that Mr. Ladera had posted for sale. Mr. Ladera agreed to meet at a local casino but upon finding out that Smirnov was from out of state -- keep in mind that personal firearm sales to persons from another state is a felony -- increased the price of the handgun from $400 to $600. Smirnov then then drove to suburban Chicago to track 36-year-old Jitka Vesel whom through an online dating service in 2008. He found Vesel's address on the internet, and tracked her to her office by gluing a GPS device to her car, prosecutors say. Based on shell casings found at the scene, Smirnov shot her eleven times, DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin said. That means that he stopped firing at one point to reload the gun and continue shooting.
Five months later, in July of 2011, Demetry Smirnov plead guilty to first degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison. According to suburban Chicago prosecutors, Demetry Smirnov verified that Illinois had banned its death penalty before traveling here to murder his ex-girlfriend. In June of 2012, Benedict Ladera, the 31 year old Seattle-area bartender who sold him the gun, plead guilty to the illegal transfer of a firearm to an out-of-state resident, and was sentenced to a year in prison.
In December of 2012 -- immediately after the Sandy Hook tragedy when anti-gun furor was at its highest, those overly litigious gun control fuckheads at Brady Campaign filed a lawsuit that specifically blames Armslist as being responsible for negligence in facilitating an illegal gun sale. It was filed "on behalf of the family of 36-year-old Vesel, a former Chicago elementary school teacher." Now is it a tragedy that this Jitka chick was killed? Absolutely. Is Smirnov responsible? Hell yes. Is Ladera also responsible? Hell yes. But is Armslist responsible? No, I just don't see it. Try to imagine if you will, you casually browse through Craigslist to go find yourself a hooker. Even though you already know it's illegal, you arrange to meet at a hotel, do the deed, pay and leave. But as an added bonus you also get to take home herpes, which you promptly give to your wife. Angry that she now has cold sores busting out on both sets of lips, your wife then sues... Craigslist? See, that shit doesn't make any sense. Anyway, if you feel so inclined, I strongly urge you to kick in a few bucks to the Armslist's Legal Defense Fund; I know, that's a shitty design but the guy Jon who runs Armslist is a stand up guy. Not to mention if the Brady Bunch gets any traction on this; it could have a chilling effect on online firearm sites.
Ernie, Concerning your link about trash talking, I thought Shaq's diss of Vlade Divac was a lot better. Cheers, Charley P.S. Yup, so I guess there were no Marines at the Benghazi Embassy. Shame. I bet they would have fucking destroyed those assholes.
Dude that tumblr trick is killer...i love big tittays! Thank you and by the way the movie Less Than Zero was awesome. Timothy
Also, in a symbolic attempt to bury his decadent 1980s Brat Pack image and begin a new phase of his life, Robert Downey Jr literally buried all the clothes that he wore in 1987's Less Than Zero in the backyard of his house.

If there's one thing I like about Tumblr it's this: you can bypass all of the day to day post and comment shit, and just go right to the meat and potatoes of a person's Tumblr blog. Example. Let's say you like big titties -- and let's be honest, who doesn't -- so you're a fan of Big Tits Oh Yeah ! But let's also say that you don't want to scroll through all of that crap and click next-next-next-next. All you have to do is append "/archive" to the URL and viola! Tumblr's design is fucking PERFECT. In fact, Tumblr CEO and founder David Karp has resisted the use of traditional display advertising on Tumblr to this point. So the phrase of the day is Don't Fuck This Up; That was the key message for Yahoo management by investors and industry watchers as they digest Yahoo's $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr that was announced Monday. But the deal raises concerns among some Tumblr fans that the site could end up being cluttered by the ads that brings in billions of dollars a year to Yahoo.
The fact is that the majority of our nation's children spend almost every day trapped inside schools that are proudly emblazoned with signs reading "Gun Free Zone." But when Project Veritas offered that same opportunity to some of America's most fervent advocates for gun control they flat out refused. If it's good enough for children, why isn't it good enough for them?
The two primary health risks from space heaters are the risk of fire, and the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. The latter risk accompanies gas and kerosene heaters but not electric ones. The risk of fire from electric heaters may be mitigated by low surface temperatures, by switches that cut power in the event of the device being knocked over, or by thermal cut-out switches. Experts to suggest keeping combustible materials such as bedding, furniture, and curtains at least three feet from the front of the heater and away from its sides and rear.
It Came From The Intertubes:
The National Basketball Association has a proud tradition of trash talking that no amount of personal fouls or game ejections can obscure. But just like with other more athletic aspects of the game, some players are more skilled at trash talk than others. Here are nine of the greatest trash-talking moments in the history of the NBA. From Shaq, to Kobe, to Larry Bird, all the trash-talking greats are here. It might even make you reflect on how the art of the trash talk isn't what it used to be.
A paper shredder is a mechanical device used to cut paper into chad, typically either strips or fine particles. Government organizations, businesses, and private individuals use shredders to destroy private, confidential, or otherwise sensitive documents. Privacy experts often recommend that individuals shred important documents such bills, tax documents, credit card and bank account statements, and other items which could be used by thieves to commit fraud or identity theft.
A touch-sensitive lamp is one that is activated by human touch rather than a flip, pushbutton, or other mechanical switch. They act on the principle of body capacitance. These lamps are popular as desk and nightstand lamps. The touch-sensitive is not only an ON/Off switch but also a dimmer switch, that allows one to make an electric light brighter or less bright.
So I went and saw Star Trek: Into Darkness this weekend and it was good, very good. The visual effects were nothing shy of absolutely fucking stunning and it's one of those movies where if you don't see it on the big screen in 3D, you're cheating yourself. The storyline was kind of [spoiler!] predictable -- you'll peg Robocop as the bad guy within the first 30 minutes -- but to me the biggest disappointment was the (homage?) to the the reactor scene from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In Darkness, it's New Kirk dying in in the reactor room, and New Spock on the outside looking in. Added disappointment: after New Kirk dies, New Spock does the Khaaaan! scream. But Aside from that no-homage-allowed sticking point, I didn't find it anywhere near as dry as some people claim, but it wasn't as good as the fist one, either.
Car covers can help protect your car parked in the great outdoors from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation, acid rain, bird droppings, wind borne particles, sun fading, the claws of animals and even the prying eyes of thieves (let them guess as opposed to knowing). Inside your garage a quality cover provides a barrier against airborne dirt and foot borne varmints. The use of a car cover is a double-edged sword, as they are both protective and possibly damaging. A cover that does not fit properly may be more damaging than no cover at all. If it is too loose, wind may cause it to flap against the paint, causing severe scratching.
Sunny Leone is a Canadian actress, model and former pornographic actress. She was named Penthouse Pet of the Year in 2003 and was a contract star for Vivid Entertainment. Named by Maxim as one of the 12 top porn stars in 2010, she has also played roles in mainstream films and television shows. And let's be honest, if you're looking for a model to promote your thirts by wearing them -- or in some cases, not weasing them -- she's not a bad choice to make, amirite?
Diamond plate, also known as checker plate, tread plate and Durbar floor plate, is a type of lightweight metal stock with a regular pattern of raised diamonds or lines on one side, with the reverse side being featureless. Diamond plate is usually steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Steel types are normally made by hot rolling, although modern manufacturers also make a raised and pressed diamond design. Used on stairs and catwalks in industrial settings, the added texture reduces the risk of slipping. For this reason diamond plate is frequently used on the interior of ambulances, on the footplates of firetrucks, and in the fabrication of storage for commercial pickup trucks. Diamond plate can also be used decoratively, particularly highly polished aluminum variants.
Remember the auction for Dita Von Teese's 1939 Packard? Well, it sold. Greg
Marines were not at Benghazi. Charlie needs to chill. Terry -- "When the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was overrun on Sept. 11, public outcry erupted over whether security at the installation was sufficient. Much of the confusion surrounded the perceived role of Marine Embassy Security Guards, who it turned out were not present at the time of the attack. A quick-response force was sent to the consulate following the incident, but no Marines are currently stationed there, according to U.S. officials. Had Marines been present, it is likely they could have minimized the damage and loss of life, security experts have said. The attack has been variously described as a protest-turned-violent-riot and a coordinated military-style assault. The troops chosen for embassy guard duty train for both scenarios, as well as everything else that could conceivably happen at the 285 such installations that span the globe." [source]
If the itch is getting to you every time you drive by a body of water, then you will be hooked the minute you set foot into a boat. The benefits of owning your own boat out weigh the hassles of making appointments for rentals, getting the timing right with a buddy who owns a boat or having to stay at one lake all the time. First things first though, before you buy your own, go out to your local marina and rent one for a few hours. Rentals can run $30 dollars an hour but it makes a great trainer for the novice. Most marinas will walk you through the steps of pulling in and out of the dock, how to tilt your engine etc. If you enjoy renting a boat, then you are ready to buy one.
So that's it. That's me. Back before any of this crazy shit happened. I guess I'm the last person you'd expect to become a superhero. I'm not saying there was anything wrong with me, but there was nothing special, either. I wasn't into sports, I wasn't a mathlete or a hardcore gamer. I didn't have a piercing, or an eating disorder, or 3000 friends on MySpace. My only superpower was being invisible to girls. And out of my friends, man, I wasn't even the funny one. Like most people my age, I just existed.
On August 14, 1945, Alfred Eisenstaedt took a picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square, minutes after they heard of Japan's surrender to the United States. Two weeks later LIFE magazine published that image. It became one of the most famous WWII photographs in history (and the most celebrated photograph ever published in the world's dominant photo-journal), a cherished reminder of what it felt like for the war to finally be over. Everyone who saw the picture wanted to know more about the nurse and sailor, but Eisenstaedt had no information and a search for the mysterious couple's identity took on a dimension of its own. In 1979 Eisenstaedt thought he had found the long lost nurse. And as far as almost everyone could determine, he had. For the next thirty years Edith Shain was known as the woman in the photo of V-J Day, 1945, Times Square. In 1980 LIFE attempted to determine the sailor's identity . Many aging warriors stepped forward with claims, and experts weighed in to support one candidate over another. Chaos ensued.
For almost two decades Lawrence Verria and George Galdorisi were intrigued by the controversy surrounding the identity of the two principals in Eisenstaedt's most famous photograph and collected evidence that began to shed light on this mystery. Unraveling years of misinformation and controversy, their findings propelled one claimant's case far ahead of the others and, at the same time, dethroned the supposed kissed nurse when another candidate's claim proved more credible. With this book, the authors solve the 67-year-old mystery by providing irrefutable proof to identify the couple in Eisenstaedt's photo. It is the first time the whole truth behind the celebrated picture has been revealed.
So anyway, it turns out that homebrewing is one of the fastest growing hobbies around. It's easy to see why – not only is it fun and educational, but you also get a ton of beer in the bargain. And who doesn't love beer? But homebrewing can be a bit tricky if you happen to live in a small apartment instead of a giant house with a laboratory in the basement. So here are some tips for the aspiring apartment homebrewer. So read them all, and get ready to forget all about Miller Lite.
uhhhhh, hey Ernie, you might want to let charlie know that when American Embassies cross into the relm known as Hostile Fire Zones like Benghazi did a long time ago, Marine security goes out the window. Embassy security becomes part of USSOC and these "security details" employ some REAL badasses, not hollywood types. As for this tragedy, it killed me when hillary (the cunt) said this. That should have awaken Americans. The Lt.
A musical fountain is a type of animated fountain for entertainment purposes that creates an aesthetic design including three-dimensional images. This is achieved by employing the effects of timed sound waves and timed light (including laser) against water particles. The water refracts and reflects the light, and in doing so, three-dimensional images can be produced. Installations can be large scale, employing hundreds of water jets and lights, and costing into the millions of dollars, or in smaller household forms, where a budget of one thousand dollars is feasible. Musical features tend to be complex, and require a degree of mechanical, hydraulic, electrical, and electronic components out of view that might be as impressive to its audience as the show itself.
A jon boat is a flat-bottomed boat constructed of aluminum, fiberglass, or wood with one, two, or three bench seats. They are particularly useful for hunting due to the greater stability as compared to a V-hull boat. They are quite suitable for fishing as well. Because the hull of a jon boat is nearly flat, it tends to ride over the waves rather than cut through them as a V-hull might, thus limiting the use of the boat to calmer waters. Jon boats typically have a transom onto which an outboard motor can be mounted. They are simple and easy to maintain, and inexpensive with many options to upgrade. Jon boats with beefed up aluminum construction, and powered by jet-drive outboards, are capable of operating in extremely shallow water and thus are used frequently in rocky rivers and areas with submerged obstructions such as oyster bars and coral.
