It's actually amazing how much our civil liberties have been eroded within the last year. The Patriot Act has given way to the National Defense Authorization Act, which is potentially giving way to the Stop Online Piracy Act. Coming soon, to a Main Street near you? Ait wasn't too long ago when I'd have said no fucking way, but the way events are unfolding, I'm not so sure anymore. Man shit like this really pisses me off. Somoene needs to track down that Sam Hall and really rip him a new asshole.
Many new concealed-carry permit holders subscribe to a variety of myths that could have potentially deadly consequences. Here are five of the most common. In related news, late Monday afternoon, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa's office sent an email with a copy of a letter the Congressman had sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on December 15 – a letter to which the A.G. has yet to respond. In it, Issa informs Holder that the Committee would like him to appear for more testimony on January 24, 2012. In other words, Fast and Furious isn't going away any time soon.
A crane vessel, or floating crane is a ship with a crane specialized in lifting heavy loads. The largest crane vessels are used for offshore construction. Conventional monohulls are used, but the largest crane vessels are often catamaran or semi-submersible types as they have increased stability. On a sheerleg crane, the crane is fixed and cannot rotate, and the vessel therefore is manoeuvered to place loads.
Charly Temmel Ice Cream produces high-quality frozen desserts. It offers frozen yogurt and gelato in variety of flavors, but specializes in Austrian ice cream. They supply lots of well known restaurants and hotels, catering companies and super markets. This little storefront ice cream parlor is a good alternative for those more discerning ice cream eaters, who shun the soft-serve that is sold up and down the boardwalk. They don't mind if you rollerblade in, which is handy for those who get cravings in the middle of their morning exercise.

Recently Playboy model Megan Dills was injured during an NCAA basketball game when an unexpected victory prompted fans to storm the court. And did her boyfriend come to her aid? Noooo. Dills was caught in the stampede and walked a way with a limp, thanks to a sprained ankle. Poor thing even had to cancel a photo shoot. Thankfully, it seems Dills will make a full recovery and we won't have to face losing even one of the world's most precious resource: the Playboy Playmate sports enthusiast. That got me thinking about other Playmate sports fans. Are there any others? How many of them are actually out there? And why don't we have some kind of global tracking system monitoring their well being? Well Rome wasn't built in a day, but I've decided to get ahead of the wide-spread panic by putting together a preliminary of the 50 hottest Playboy Playmate sports fans ever.
A myocardial infarction, commonly known as a heart attack, results from the interruption of blood supply to a part of the heart, causing heart cells to die. This is most commonly due to occlusion of a coronary artery following the rupture of a vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque, which is an unstable collection of lipids (cholesterol and fatty acids) and white blood cells in the wall of an artery. The resulting restriction in blood supply and ensuing oxygen shortage, if left untreated for a sufficient period of time, can cause damage or death of heart muscle tissue. The onset of symptoms in myocardial infarction is usually gradual, over several minutes, and rarely instantaneous. Chest pain is the most common symptom of acute myocardial infarction and is often described as a sensation of tightness, pressure, or squeezing. Pain radiates most often to the left arm, but may also radiate to the lower jaw, neck, right arm, back, and epigastrium, where it may mimic heartburn. Levine's sign, in which the patient localizes the chest pain by clenching their fist over the sternum, has classically been thought to be predictive of cardiac chest pain, although a prospective observational study showed that it had a poor positive predictive value.
A wisdom tooth, in humans, is any of the usually four third molars, usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth are extracted for two general reasons: either the wisdom teeth have already become impacted, or the wisdom teeth could potentially become problematic if not extracted. Potential problems caused by the presence of properly grown-in wisdom teeth include infections caused by food particles easily trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective. Such infections may be frequent, and cause considerable pain and medical danger. Other reasons wisdom teeth are removed include misalignment which rubs up against the tongue or cheek causing pain, potential crowding of the remaining teeth, as well as orthodontics.
What's that blue can for? Well, I'd say it's mostly for looks, and I bet she gets a lot of compliments... Oh, wait.. I bet you were talking about the bollard! Jon in Tulsa

The Mallard is a dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and subtropical Americas, Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to New Zealand and Australia. The Mallard lives in wetlands, eats water plants, and is gregarious. The Mallard is 20–26 inches long, of which the body makes up around two-thirds, has a wingspan of 32–39 inches, and weighs 1.6–3.5 lb. The breeding male is unmistakable, with a bright bottle-green head, black rear end and a yellowish orange bill tipped with black, as opposed to the black/orange bill in females. It has a white collar which demarcates the head from the purple-tinged brown breast, grey brown wings, and a pale grey belly. The dark tail has white borders. The female Mallard is a mottled light brown, like most female dabbling ducks, and has buff cheeks, eyebrow, throat and neck with a darker crown and eye-stripe.
Santa's elves, unlike J.R.R. Tolkien's, are generally short, stupid, badly dressed and maddeningly cheery. Maybe that's why they invariably inspire such homicidal feelings among audiences when they appear in movies. Personally, whenever we see someone in a pointy green hat, we want to wring the little douchebag's neck. In light of this, here are 15 rosy-cheeked pointy-eared elves that you'd just love to kick off Santa's sleigh, preferably from a great height.
A tow hitch is a device attached to the chassis of a vehicle for towing, and can take the form of a tow-ball to allow swiveling and articulation of a trailer, or a tow pin and jaw with a trailer loop—often used for large or agricultural vehicles. In North America the vehicle attachment is known as the trailer hitch. A trailer hitch typically bolts to the chassis of the vehicle. In North America there are a few common classes: I, II, III, IV, and V that are defined by the SAE. Class I hitches are up to 2,000 pounds and are generally for very light loads. Class II hitches are rated upo to 3,500 pounds, and are common for small trailers or campers. Class III hitches which are rated 5,000 pounds are common on pickup trucks and Class IV -- up to 10,000 pounds -— are used for hauling larger loads such as full sized, motor yachts, etc.
