Three years on, and I still say this was the single most selfless act that I've ever witnessed in my entire life.
Cleavage, anatomically known as the intramammary cleft, is the space between a woman's breasts lying over the sternum. Cleavage is exposed by garments with low necklines, including ball gowns, evening gowns, or swimwear. Most people, both male and female, consider breasts an important aspect of femininity and many women use cleavage to enhance their physical and sexual attractiveness and to enhance their sense of femininity. Some people regard use of cleavage as a form of feminine flirting or seduction, within the confines of community, peer group and personal standards of modesty, as much as for its aesthetic or erotic effect. Some people derive erotic pleasure from seeing a woman's cleavage, some derive pleasure in their female partner exposing cleavage, and some women wear low-cut clothing for the pleasure of their partner.
On a more cerebral note, astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson is quickly becoming one of my favorite people of his generation. Earlier this week, a video he narrated entitled The Most Astounding Fact made its debut, which prompted me to look up some of his earlier work and I found his thoughts on NASA to be quite profound. He begins by taking us back to the 1960's during the dawn of the space race and the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to put a man on the moon. The US succeeded in doing so first of course -- remember that all five Soviet attempts to launch their N1 rocket ended in catastrophic failure and video from the last explosion wasn't even declassified until 2008 -- but that all talk of 'from the moon to Mars to a space colony' kind of died out once we didn't have the Soviets to compete against any longer. And by making the case that by defunding NASA we’ve defunded our own imagination. It's kind of depressing, in all honesty, because I find his words to be quite inspiring. And that $850 billion bank bailout? Greater than the ENTIRE 50 year running budget for NASA. That's fucked up.
Air fresheners are consumer products used in homes or commercial products used in restrooms that typically emit fragrance. There are two broad air freshener categories: continuous action and instant action. Continuous action products include: scented candles and devices which use a candle flame or some other heat source to heat and vaporize a fragrance formulation; Incense burners; wall plug-ins which either use Piezoelectricity technology to aerosolize fragrance or heat to vaporize it; fragrance impregnated gels which release fragrance as the gel evaporates sometimes with the help of an electric fan; wick and reed diffusers which release fragrance by evaporation from fragrance-soaked wicks or wooden reeds; and fragrance impregnated materials like floor wax, paper, plastics, and wood. Removing the source of an unpleasant odor will decrease the chance that you will smell it. Ventilation is also important to maintaining indoor air quality and can aid in eliminating unpleasant odors. Simple cleaners such as white vinegar and baking soda, as well as adsorbents like zeolite, are effective at removing odors. Some house plants may also aid in the removal of toxic substances from the air in building interiors.
Heart Stop Beating is the story of Billy Cohn & Bud Frazier, two visionary doctors from the Texas Heart Institute, who in March of 2011 successfully replaced a dying man's heart with a 'continuous flow' device they developed, proving that life was possible without a pulse or a heart beat.
Ummm...I was looking for a picture of the cover of New York Times Magazine from April 16th, 1944...which is why I put that exact info in the search field. Either I got wrong results or that magazine had exceptionally dirty content with a deceptively innocent name -- [very NSFW search results] WTF?! LC
Ernie, just to clear things up. Bruce Allen said," that not all (just the non coastal counties) of Mississippi is like that." The way I count it, of the 82 counties that comprise the great state of Mississippi, only 3 counties are coastal counties. So about 96.5% of the state is the, "we all look like toothless minority hating rednecks" part. I don't know why he would be mad, he brought up the boundary to be judged. Fuck that toothless redneck!

This was from a man that knowingly put a machine screw in his urethra 10 years ago and left it there. He was in the preop holding area and all I could think to ask was, "flathead or phillips?" The nurses died laughing. John
The National Electrical Contractors Association, or NECA, is a trade association in the United States that represents the $130 billion/year electrical contracting industry. NECA supports the businesses that bring power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities. Through advocacy, education, research, and standards development, NECA works to advance the electrical contracting industry. NECA's Management Education Institute (MEI) provides management education and supervisory training programs for industry leaders; NECA publishes ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR magazine, the industry's top source of information on electrical construction; and NECA sponsors the electrical contracting industry's premier convention and trade show.
So National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry Weapons permits is back in the news, after Senate Bill 2188 was introduced into the Senate; this of course complements House Bill 822, which was introduced last year. But the difference between the two is actually pretty astounding. The older HR says if a person is licensed to carry in State-A and happens to travel over to State-B, then State-B must recognize the individual's right to carry based upon State-A's permit. This would have avoided the embarassing arrests of Mark Meckler, former Marine Ryan Jerome, and Meredith Graves at the tail end of last year. The newer Senate bill goes one step further to assist the residents of states that don't issue permits (Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Montana, and Wyoming) because those states don't require a permit to carry a firearm. Right now, 49 of 50 states issue CCW permits in one form or another, with 41 of those states (including Florida) being 'Shall Issue' instead of the douchebag 'May Issue' states, like Maryland.

A fingerpick is a type of plectrum used most commonly for playing bluegrass style banjo music. Most fingerpicks are composed of metal or plastic. Unlike flat guitar picks, which are held between the thumb and finger and used one at a time, fingerpicks clip onto or wrap around the end of the fingers and thumb; thus one hand can pick several strings at once. Fingerpicks worn on the thumb are generally called "thumbpicks". Most players use a plastic thumbpick while using metal fingerpicks. Fingerpicks come in a variety of thicknesses to accommodate different musicians' styles of playing. Thin picks produce a quieter, more delicate sound, while thick picks produce a heavier sound.
