A hope chest is a chest used to collect items such as clothing and household linen, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life. Contents of a hope chest included typical dowry items such as clothing (especially a wedding dress), table linens, towels, bed linens, quilts and occasionally dishware. As a bride would typically leave home on marriage, hope chests were sometimes made with an eye to portability, albeit infrequently. Examples of hand-made items made between 1916 and 1918 for a trousseau by a prospective bride are on display in the National Museum of Australia. In this case, the trousseau - never used because its creator's fiancé was killed in World War I before the marriage took place - was stored in calico bags rather than in a chest.
Women's sports have come a long way since trailblazers like Wilma Rudolph, Billy Jean King, and Althea Gibson. Today, women's sports are more popular than ever, and female athletes are making more money than ever — both good things. But, as with everything in life, there's also a downside. Namely, with all that glory and money at stake, more female athletes are turning to performance enhancing drugs than ever before. And while some of them are smart and use the cutting edge drugs that are hard to detect, some of them are (apparently) quite stupid and use the old-fashioned ones that make you look like a freak. I mean, if you thought Barry Bonds looked ridiculous with his Popeye arms and big inflated BALCO balloon head, you should check out the cyclist on this list with the man-sized guns and the five o'clock shadow.
Tattoo lovers have left no place, untouched with body art, almost every part of their body is covered with a tattoo. The lips are no exception to this. Lip tattoos are tattoos on the inside of your lip, usually on the lower lip, and are famous with the hard-core tattoo lovers. Lip tattoo is preferred by many as it is hidden and personal. Unlike other tattoos, these tattoos go unnoticed during parties, interview or other events. There is no way a person would notice your tattoo unless you want him/her to. These tattoos are highly personal as many people get the name of their loved ones tattooed on the inner lip. Tattoo of a lucky number, favorite phrase or word is referred choices. These tattoos are also not permanent, which may turn out to be an advantage as you would not have it life long.
Just going thru and 'cleaning up ' a few pictures while I'm taking a break . These were May/June 1969. Somewhere above Khe Sanh and close to the DMZ & Laos border. My M-60 machine gun and my jungle condo. On the one where guys are loading onto chopper, it always sucked when the entire company loaded before we did . We'd be the last platoon then often the last squad to leave the area . That meant there'd be 9 or 11 of us on the ground alone untill another bird came in . Lord only knows the choppers didn't attract and bad guy attention. Greg
A cable tie, also known as a zip tie or tie-wrap, is a type of fastener used for binding several electronic cables or wires together and to organize cables and wires. In its common form, the nylon cable tie consists of a tape section with triangular teeth that slope in one direction. The head of the cable tie has a slot with a flexible pawl that rides up the slope of these teeth when the tape is inserted. The pawl engages the backside of these teeth to stop removal of the tape. In its most popular form, a cable tie consists of a sturdy Nylon tape with an integrated gear rack, and on one end a ratchet within a small open case. Once the pointed tip of the cable tie has been pulled through the case and past the ratchet, it is prevented from being pulled back; the resulting loop may only be pulled tighter. This allows several cables to be bound together into a cable tree.
For pure '80s charm, you can't do much better than the Back to the Future series, which saw Marty McFly and Emmett Brown ping-ponging from the 1980s to the 1950s, before heading on to the future and back to the wild west. However, there's nothing quite as retro as what people dreamed the future would be like in the past. In fact, a lot of the inventions that the film makers imagined might populate the world of 2015 already exist today. Here are 10 inventions that became real and another 5 that are on their way!

A slipcover is a fitted protective cover that may be slipped off and on a piece of upholstered furniture. Slipcovers are usually made of cloth. Slipcovers slip on and off, they come fresh, and may be removed for seasonal change, cleaning, moving, or storage. Slipcovers are sometimes defined as "clothing for furniture." Indeed, they are tailored just as clothing is, and are fitted loosely or snugly to the taste of the owner or tailor. Some people order furniture upholstered in plain muslin with the intention of using slipcovers only. In the 1950's and 1960's before home air conditioning was commonly available, it was common to put slipcovers on upholstered furniture in the hot months of the year to protect the upholstery fabric from sweat, and slipcover tailors offered clear vinyl, or plastic slipcovers. These clear plastic slipcovers were available in large department stores such as Jordan Marsh or were custom made by artisans.
In a recent journal essay, Judge Evan Wallach, a member of the U.S. Court of International Trade and an adjunct professor in the law of war, writes that the testimony from American soldiers about this form of torture was gruesome and convincing. Judge Wallach quoted the testimony of a victim: "They laid me out on a stretcher and strapped me on. The stretcher was then stood on end with my head almost touching the floor and my feet in the air.. They then began pouring water over my face and at times it was almost impossible for me to breathe without sucking in water." A number of the Japanese soldiers convicted by American judges were hanged, while others received lengthy prison sentences or time in labor camps. In fact, in fact 1947 Yukio Asano, a Japanese soldier who used water boarding against a U.S. soldier during World War II was sentenced to 15 years in prison for committing a war crime. So I suppose this might be why waterboarding was listed as one of the ten worst torture methods of the 21st century.
The United States one-dollar bill is the most common denomination of US currency. The first president, George Washington, painted by Gilbert Stuart, is currently featured on the obverse, while the Great Seal of the United States is featured on the reverse. The one-dollar bill has the oldest reverse design of all U.S. currency, while the two-dollar bill has the oldest obverse design currently being produced. The obverse design seen today on the one-dollar bill debuted in 1963 when it first became a Federal Reserve Note. The inclusion of the motto, "In God We Trust," on all currency was required by law in 1955, and first appeared on paper money in 1957. This legislation was passed during the Red Scare period of US politics. The Federal Reserve says the average life of a $1 bill in circulation is 4.8 years before it is replaced because of wear. Approximately 42% of all U.S. currency produced in 2009 were one-dollar bills.
