Cannabis, also known as marijuana, refers to preparations of the Cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug and as medicine. In 2004, the United Nations estimated that global consumption of cannabis indicated that approximately 4.0 percent of the adult world population (162 million people) used cannabis annually, and that approximately 22.5 million of people used cannabis daily. Since the early 20th century cannabis has been subject to legal restrictions with the possession, use, and sale of cannabis preparations containing psychoactive cannabinoids currently illegal in most countries of the world; the United Nations has said that cannabis is the most used illicit drug in the world. Celebrity marijuana advocates like Woody Harrelson and Bill Maher champion the cause through official channels, while others express their support in their own ways.... take this song by Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Kris Kristofferson and Snoop Dogg, titled Roll Me Up And Smoke Me, for example.

A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century arose from the vaquero traditions of northern Mexico and became a figure of special significance and legend. The cowboy has deep historic roots tracing back to Spain and the earliest European settlers of the Americas. Over the centuries, differences in terrain, climate and the influence of cattle-handling traditions from multiple cultures created several distinct styles of equipment, clothing and animal handling. A significant number of African-American freedmen also were drawn to cowboy life, in part because there was not quite as much discrimination in the west as in other areas of American society at the time. As the ever-practical cowboy adapted to the modern world, the cowboy's equipment and techniques also adapted to some degree, though many classic traditions are still preserved today.
When it comes to thinking about the WWE Divas, I am sure everyone thinks about their wrestling skills first. Oh wait, you don't? Yeah, I don't either. The WWE Divas are there for eye candy for all the testosterone-driven wrestling fans. I am not saying that the Divas of present and past can't wrestle, but fans by and large don't really care for their skills inside the squared circle. I have compiled a list of the hottest WWE Divas in the past 20 years.
This is the end of his talk called "Cosmic Quandaries". When it comes to science and outer space, Neil deGrasse Tyson is probably the most interesting person on the planet.
Windex-like products typically contain detergents, ammonia, fragrance to moderate the odor of ammonia, and some form of dye. The original modern Windex was colored a light, transparent shade of blue, but varieties are marketed today in a variety of colors and fragrances, and with a variety of additives such as vinegar, lemon, lime, or orange juice. Light duty hard surface cleaners are not intended to handle heavy dirt and grease. Because these products are expected to clean without rinsing and result in a streak-free shine, they contain no salts. Typical window cleaners consist of alcohols, either ethanol or isopropanol and surfactants for dissolving grease.
In 1918, the last year of The War to End All Wars, a bunch of U.S. Marines were dug in at a location near Paris called Belleau Wood in preparation for a massive German invasion. During the first few days of the fight, the Marines encountered remnants of battle weary French forces retreating from the relentless German attack. The French advised the Marines to turn back: A French major reportedly ordered Captain Lloyd W. Williams of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines to retreat, to which Capt. Williams shouted, "Retreat? Hell, we just got here!" making it clear that he was only starting to have fun. Even after heavy losses -- including Williams himself who was and was posthumously promoted to Major and awarded the Distinguished Service Cross -- the Marines repelled wave after wave of German assaults, eventually taking the woods for the Allied side and preventing an invasion of Paris. Even the enemy was impressed: An official German report described the Marines' resistance as "remarkable."
Getting the wind knocked out of you is a commonly used idiom that refers to a kind of diaphragm spasm that occurs when sudden force is applied to the abdomen which puts pressure on the solar plexus. This often happens in contact sports or by falling on the back. It results in a temporary paralysis of the diaphragm that makes it difficult to breathe. This can lead to anxiety and there may be residual pain from the original blow, but the condition should clear spontaneously in a minute or two. Sometimes, it can be harder to breathe though, and the victim could end up having a lot of trouble breathing, standing, or sitting.
