Paul, do you know about the early days of the Kimberly Diamond mines? Do you know what they did to the native workers who stole diamonds? Don't worry, they didn't kill them. That would be like junking a Mercedes just because it had a broken spring. No, if they caught them, they had to make sure they could go on working. But they also had to make sure they could never run away. The operation was called hobbling.
Uh-oh, Looks like Steve Jobs pulled a Farrah Fawcett.
Zebras are African equids (horse family) best known for their distinctive black and white stripes. Their stripes come in different patterns unique to each individual. They are generally social animals that live in small harems to large herds. Unlike their closest relatives, horses and asses, zebras have never been truly domesticated. There are three species of zebras: the plains zebra, the Grevy's zebra and the mountain zebra. Female zebras mature earlier than the males, and a mare may have her first foal by the age of three. Plains and mountain zebra foals are protected by their mothers, as well as the head stallion and the other mares in their group. Grevy's zebra foals have only their mother as a regular protector, since, as noted above, Grevy's zebra groups often disband after a few months.
A blind spot in a vehicle is an area around the vehicle that cannot be directly observed by the driver while at the controls, under existing circumstances. Blind spots exist in a wide range of vehicles: cars, trucks, motorcycles, aircraft, and motorboats. As one is driving an automobile, blind spots are the areas of the road that cannot be seen while looking forward or through either the rear-view or side mirrors. The most common are the rear quarter blind spots, areas towards the rear of the vehicle on both sides. Vehicles in the adjacent lanes of the road that fall into these blind spots may not be visible using only the car's mirrors.
Chanel is a French fashion house founded by the couturier Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, well established in haute couture, specializing in luxury goods; haute couture, ready-to-wear, handbags, perfumery, sunglasses, and cosmetics among others. She gained the name "Coco" while maintaining a career as a singer at a cafe in France. Chanel has catered to tastes in items such as simple suits, dresses, women's pants, and costume jewelry. The signature Chanel logotype is an interlocking double-C (one facing forwards the other facing backwards.) Originally, it was not a logo that Coco Chanel came up with. The logo was given to her by the Chateau de Cremat in Nice. The logo was not trademarked until the opening of the first Chanel stores.
And while I initially call bullshit because there's no way in hell any guy could be offended by this, here's a little tip from your Uncle Ernie: if you're underage drinking, don't attract attention to yourself by flashing your boobs.
After making a breathtaking appearance in ESPN's most recent Body Issue, 23 year old artistic gymnast Alicia Sacramone is gaining quite the fanbase. Known to football fans as Brady Quinn's girlfriend, this beauty is garnering her own attention with sexy poses and prolific athleticism. But fans are still wondering who Sacramone truly is. While her photo shoots are often beautifully calm and subtly exotic, they sometimes reek of danger and a willingness to experiment. One can only hope to understand this budding star through her descriptive pictures. Here are Alicia Sacramone's hottest pics of all time. Enjoy.
Here's a good video on the subject of the fallout from the Reno Air Race accident. Larry
Ernie, I took off Monday to go to the Occupy Boston march from the Boston Commons to Dewey Square. A wonderful time was had by all. Alas, I left before things got out of hand, I thought I'd share some pics with you from a beautiful day. Enjoy. Daniel
See, that's what I'm cool with. It doesn't make a difference whether or not I agree with your message, just do it in a respectful manner. But what I dodn't understand is the whole "tresspassing and unlawful assembly" angle. What the fuck does that mean? As long as you're standing on public property, you're not obstructing the coming and going of others, and you're not inciting others to do anything unlawful.... what's the problem?
Whatever positive thing you can say about alcohol (like, say, you have it to thank for the loss of your virginity), it sure as hell isn't going to help your career. Climbing the corporate ladder takes a lot of hard work, while spending nights out drinking means you're always calling in sick or spending half the shift hung over. So workers who frequently visit bars to drink away their problems must be making less than their hardworking coworkers who stay late at the office, right? Not so, says the Journal of Labor Research. Their studies found that social drinkers earned 7 percent more, and people who frequented bars on a regular basis earned a whopping 10 to 14 percent more, than non-drinkers.
A programmable thermostat is a thermostat which is designed to adjust the temperature according to a series of programmed settings that take effect at different times of the day. eating and cooling losses from a building (or any other container) become greater as the difference in temperature increases. A programmable thermostat allows reduction of these losses by allowing the temperature difference to be reduced at times when the reduced amount of heating or cooling would not be objectionable. While programmable thermostats may be able to save energy when used correctly, little or no average energy savings has been demonstrated in residential field studies. Difficulty with usability in residential environments appears to lead to lack of persistence of energy savings in homes.
An LCD, or Liquid Crystal Display, is the display technology used to create the screens embedded in the back of nearly all digital cameras. In a digital camera, the LCD works for reviewing photos, displaying menu options, and serving as a live viewfinder. Even inexpensive digital cameras now contain full-color LCD screens. Some beginner-level digital cameras do not contain a separate viewfinder, forcing you to use the LCD as a viewfinder at all times. LCD screen sharpness depends, in part, on the number of pixels the LCD can display, and this number should be listed in the camera's specifications.
E - Here's a shot of another OWS cretin taking a dump on the flag. Way to line people up for the cause...Eric
[RE: Protestors & flags] Till the end of my life I'll be a broken record about how much I hate the cocksucking maggots. They ruined my perfectly legitimate cause of liberating the Vietnamese from invading Commies. Nice going for them. Millions (Killing Fields) were killed when we abandoned the war. Now they want to break the system, imperfect as it is. I have often fantasized about flying over them in my Huey and going hot with my M-60 machine gun. ...but they are like the Crazy Ants invading Florida. If you kill them the corpses attract many more... Steve
To be fair, Eric sent in the actualy photograph, not a link. But the photo was kinda small and pixelated, so I decided to Google search for a better quality image, and that link was the first one that came up. Although I am kind of puzzled as to why the site owner would make such a random comment as, "Obama supports this behavior." I mean where the fuck did that come from?
The problem of dog overpopulation is a real one. However, the noble goal of preventing unwanted dog pregnancy does not justify the means being used. Millions of brutal forced castrations and female genital mutilations take place every year in America. We need to put a stop to these atrocities and give every living creature the respect it deserves. Just as forced sterilization isn't the answer for human population control, it's not the solution for dogs. Instead, we should respect dogs' rights as living beings by honoring their instincts and sexuality and provide them with safe, effective birth control.
