Xerostomia is the medical term for the subjective complaint of dry mouth due to a lack of saliva. Xerostomia can cause difficulty in speech and eating. It also leads to halitosis and a dramatic rise in the number of cavities, as the protective effect of saliva's remineralizing the enamel is no longer present, and can make the mucosa and periodontal tissue of the mouth more vulnerable to infection. Heavy methamphetamine use can cause xerostomia, usually called "meth mouth" in this case; it can be worsened by methamphetamine at recreational doses causing tight clenching of the jaw, compulsive grinding of the teeth, or a repetitive 'chewing' movement as if the user were chewing, but without food in the mouth. Xerostomia is sometimes colloquially called pasties, cottonmouth, drooth, or doughmouth. Several diseases, treatments, and medications can cause xerostomia. It can also be exacerbated by smoking or drinking alcohol.
Ten years ago, Angelina Jolie redefined the role of the female action hero when she starred as
Indiana Jones with huge tits Lara Croft, in what would be the beginning the of the Tombraider series. Over the next decade, several other very attractive actresses would add their names to the list of list of uber hot heroines, some goddamn Chinese ones even doing so in real life. And now who is the most recent to throw her hat into the action star ring? That's right, jug-jiggling Gina Carano in Haywire. Here are a bunch of promotional stills from the movie set, and in case you can't bring yourself to actually pay money to see it, here's the plot outlined in the movie's Wikipedia entry.
Coffee cup sleeves, also known as coffee sleeves, coffee clutches, hot cup jackets and cup holders, are roughly cylindrical sleeves that fit tightly over handle-less paper coffee cups to insulate the drinker's hands from hot coffee. Coffee sleeves are typically made of textured paperboard, but can be found made of other materials. Coffee sleeves allow coffee houses, fast food restaurants, and other coffee sellers to avoid double-cupping, the practice of using two (or more) nested paper cups for a single hot beverage. Most paper cup holders carry advertisements. The coffee sleeve was invented and patented by Jay Sorensen in 1993, under the trademarked name Java Jackets, and are now common fixtures in coffee houses that use disposable paper cups, like Starbucks.
Terrycloth, terry cloth, terry towelling, terry, or simply towelling is a fabric with loops that can absorb large amounts of water. It can be manufactured by weaving or knitting, with weaving on a dobby loom the predominant commercial method, having two beams of longitudinal warp through which the filler or weft is fired laterally. It is the length of loops that determine how much fluid is absorbed by the cloth as longer loops provide more surface area to absorb and come in contact with the fluid. Items that may be made from terrycloth include reusable diapers, towels and bathrobes, bedlinen, and sweatbands for the wrist or head. Terrycloth is also sometimes used to make sweat jackets.
This video is a collaboration between Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty. This whole project has been an amazing experience. The two of us became friends through Vimeo and explored a shared interest in timelapsing Yosemite National Park over an extended period of time. We'd like to expand this idea to other locations and would appreciate any suggestions for a future project.

Sometimes, the more blatantly intelligence-insulting an idea is, the better it works. Perhaps nowhere is this as true as within the world of advertising, where the dumbest ideas can bring fame and fortune, to the point where it seems that the ad companies flat out don't give a shit about anything anymore. The good news is that you don't need to be a snazzy ad executive to get your piece of that sweet, sweet money cake. Hell, you don't even need to work. Just ask Jason Sadler, who decided in 2009 to see if companies would pay him money to wear their T-shirts as a human billboard of sorts. He set up a website, came up with seemingly arbitrary face-value pricing for his "services" (the first day of the year costs $1, January 2 costs $2, and so forth) and set to "work." Literally the only thing he had to do was to put on a shirt when he woke up. Sadler made $83,000 in his first year. This prompted him to double the prices for 2010 -- which sold out as well, bringing in a quadruple income.
Combat boots are military boots designed to be worn by soldiers during actual combat or combat training as opposed to during parades and other ceremonial duties. Modern combat boots are designed to provide a combination of grip, ankle stability, and foot protection suitable to a rugged environment. They are traditionally made of hardened, sometimes waterproofed leather. Today, many combat boots incorporate many technologies originating in civilian hiking boots, such as Gore-Tex nylon side panels, which improve ventilation and comfort. Combat boots are also popular as fashion clothing in the goth, punk, grunge, heavy metal, industrial, skinhead, and BDSM subcultures; however, they are becoming more and more mainstream.
Hey Ernie, Interestingly enough, [regarding this picture] which seems exotic.....the far right background is Palos Verdes Penninsula, before that are the oil refineries down by Long Beach, then hyperion treatment plant (for LA's sewage) and you can see a heavy plane on departure from LAX....so that pic would be taken at Will Rogers State Beach, somewhere close to Sunset Blvd. and Pacific Coast Hwy, on a algae covered beach rock. Probably a shot for some west Hollywood gay mag or something. Peace, Damon
No, you weren't the only one who Googled that smoking hot NBA cheerleader Brittany Kerr from "American Idol" this week -- thousands of other people did too ... and TMZ has learned, the massive surge in traffic crashed her manager's website. In case you missed Wednesday's episode, the smokeshow's a cheerleader for the Charlotte Bobcats. J.Lo wasn't that impressed with her audition, but Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson eagerly handed the girl a ticket to Hollywood.
