Wow, Jesse Ventura must be feeling like a raging douchebag right about now. And I do think Bill O'Reilly got a kinda douchbaggey when he kept hounding Kyle, "So you liked it. You liked killing." And as for referring to the enemies sa savages, that's a classic way to dehumanize your target, much like Soviet sniper Tanya Chernova during World War II, who referred to the invading German soldiers as "sticks", fit only for breaking. In related news, rule #1 says The Gun Is Always Loaded.

Marie Antoinette was an Archduchess of Austria and the Queen of France and of Navarre. Initially charmed by her personality and beauty, the French people generally came to dislike her, accusing "L'Autre-chienne" (a pun in French playing with the words "Autrichienne" meaning Austrian (woman) and "Autre-chienne" meaning Other bitch) of being profligate and promiscuous, and of harboring sympathies for France's enemies, particularly Austria, her country of origin. After the royal family's flight to Varennes, Louis XVI was deposed and the monarchy abolished on 21 September 1792; the royal family was subsequently imprisoned at the Temple Prison. Nine months after her husband's execution, Marie Antoinette was herself tried, convicted of treason, and executed by guillotine on 16 October 1793. Exactly 217 years after her execution, this photo was taken.
Real Genius is a 1985 comedy film starring Val Kilmer and Gabriel Jarret. The film is set on the campus of Pacific Tech, a technical university similar to Caltech. Chris Knight (Kilmer) is a genius in his senior year working on a chemical laser. Mitch Taylor (Jarret) is a new student on campus who is paired up with Knight to work on the laser. To achieve the house filled with popcorn for the film's climax, the production popped popcorn continuously for three months. The popcorn was treated with fire retardant so it would not combust and covered it so that it would not be eaten by birds and possibly poison them. Then, the popcorn was shipped to a subdivision under construction in Canyon Country, northwest of Los Angeles, and placed in the house that belonged to Jerry Hathaway. To promote the film, the studio held what they billed as "the world's first computer press conference" with Coolidge and Grazer answering journalists' questions via computer terminals and relayed over the CompuServe computer network. Real Genius was released on August 9, 1985 in 990 theaters grossing $2.5 million in its first weekend. It went on to make $12,952,019 in North America, which is not bad considering the average cost of a movie ticket was around $3 bucks. In related news, Hollywood is trying to figure out why ticket sales have been steadily declining over the last few years. I've got, oh I dunno, a thought or two on the matter.
Speaking of Real Genius, there's a guy you see enough of nowadays, William Atherton. He was pretty big in the late 80's with roles in Die Hard (as the dick reporter) and Ghostbusters (as the dick EPA inspector). Dr Ray Stantz: Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here. Walter Peck: They caused an explosion! Mayor: Is this true? Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes it's true. This man has no dick.
Anyway, me personally I believe that Hollywood has forgotten that the first rule of a good Hollywood slasher movie is, that your movie isn't worth the price of admission without gratuitous violence. Like the scene in Jason X, where the guy gets tossed down onto a huge spike shaped like a drill bit. Now If you imagine the spike is much, much bigger, you have the Bible version: "Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs attending the king, said, 'A pole reaching to a height of 50 cubits stands by Haman's house. He had it set up for Mordecai, who spoke up to help the king.' The king said, Impale him on it! So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai. Then the king's fury subsided."
A baby's delicate skin can sunburn in as little as 10-15 minutes, depending upon the current UV levels, so protecting them from the sun's harmful rays is crucial. For babies less than 6 months of age, keep sun exposure to an absolute minimum. After 6 months, brief periods of exposure are okay, provided that a good sunscreen (SPF 50+) is used. Make sure your baby is also wearing a good sun hat that protects both the face and back of the neck. Also consider one of the many baby products available, such as a lightweight, easy-to-assemble baby beach tent.

FIREFOX! FIREFOX! YOU WANT FIREFOX!
Arrowhead Mountain Springwater takes its name from a natural rock formation in the San Bernardino Mountains shaped like a giant arrowhead. The arrowhead is naturally barren; it is not manicured in any way. Native American legend says the formation was burned in the mountain by the fall of an arrow from Heaven, showing the way to healing hot springs. Adjacent mud pits are the original source and namesake of Arrowhead water. The first documented reference to the Arrowhead springs was in records of priests stationed at Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, around 1850. Explorer David Noble Smith dubbed the waters arrowhead. By 1885, the Arrowhead Waters were famous for their supposed curing powers. By the early 20th century, the hot springs were a popular site for tourism and vacationing.
For the first time in a long while, driver involvement is making a comeback in 2012. Of course, the New Year is bringing its fair share of power hitters – what with a 650hp Mustang debuting and a bevy of 1,000hp cars – but if you look on the more affordable side of the spectrum, driving fun is back in a big way. Car companies are looking past adding more of everything into a car to make their offerings lust-worthy. Instead, they're putting in features that can't be summed up on a spec sheet, but do show up in the driving experience. Even Toyota is producing a sports car again. With cars like this on the horizon for 2012, it's shaping up to be the Year of the Driver.
Cracked heels are a sign of lack of attention to foot care rather than just overexposure or lack of moisturizing. Medically, cracked heels are also known as heel fissures. Fissures are regular linear cut wounds and mostly affect the surface level which comprises of the epidermis. Sometimes it may get deep into the dermis and become painful. Excessive pressure on the feet pads make the feet want to expand sideways. As the skin, surrounding the sides of the feet are dry they crack and cause cracked heels. Appearances of dry cracked heels also indicate zinc and omega-3 fatty acid deficiency.
This is the 1936 Ford Tudor Sedan built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum Steel. This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one currently in running & in road worthy condition. The car is in exceptional condition, with the interior and even the frame looking great. All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before they removed them from service. These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive them for one year. The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth and quiet. The car was insured (we were told) for the trip to Louisville via covered trailer for 1.5 million dollars. We were also told that the dies were ruined by stamping the stainless car parts, making these the last of these cars ever produced. Greg
According to State Farm Insurance Statistics, hose failures cause approximately $170 million in damages to homes in the United States & Canada. A failure at 70 pounds of pressure can disgorge up to 650 gallons of water per hour. The problem is that most hoses are poorly constructed and offer very little in the way of protection. Contrary to popular perception, hoses do not simply burst due to high water pressure. Rather than simply bursting, hoses fail in a very specific place - the coupling. The truth is that standard hose couplings are rolled and stamped from a thin sheet of copper alloy. In time, water flow hones them to a fine edge. Unfortunately, most people assume that installing a braided stainless steel hose will solve the problem. Virtually everyone passes this on as gospel. Marketing people take advantage of consumer ignorance by marketing them as "burst-proof." Metal hoses, like most rubber hoses, are built to fail. In order to secure the rubber tube and steel braid to the swivel, the manufacturers must use an aggressive crimp and a relatively thin rubber tube. When the hoses are bent and flexed, they fail at the crimp point. In fact, the crimp pushes the stainless steel braiding directly into the single, un-reinforced rubber tube. Since the steel braided hoses are POROUS, once the rubber tube is severed there is nothing to prevent the water from pouring out.
Today, we're going to do some urban exploring as we're searching for the tallest abandoned structures around the world. We're going to visit Russia, North Korea, the US and Poland on our quest for the rustiest. Once found, we're going to climb these towers and buildings, so make sure you leave your vertigo behind.
Magazines are made out of paper that has been coated and buffed by a process called supercalendering, in order to give a glossy appearance. During this process, paper is covered with a white clay called kaolin and put under high pressure rollers. The resulting shiny pages are suitable for color photographs. Many consumers are afraid to put magazines into paper bins, but the glossy paper does not contaminate paper recycling. Magazines are now accepted by all curbside recycling programs that collect paper. According to the Magazine Publishers of America, only 20 percent of magazines are recycled from the home. Once recycled, magazines cannot be used to make new magazines. However, they do help to make newspaper, tissue, writing paper and paperboard. Don't be shy about recycling magazines; recycled paper saves 60 percent of the energy needed to make new paper.
