"Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation to English of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was enriched with butter and eggs, as opposed to ordinary bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess's obliviousness to the condition of the people. While commonly attributed to Queen Marie Antoinette, there is no record of these words ever having been uttered by her.
Cake is often the dessert of choice for meals at ceremonial occasions, particularly weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. There are countless cake recipes; some are bread-like, some rich and elaborate, and many are centuries old. Cake making is no longer a complicated procedure; while at one time considerable labor went into cake making (particularly the whisking of egg foams), baking equipment and directions have been simplified so that even the most amateur cook may bake a cake. Some varieties of cake are widely available in the form of pre-made cake mixes, wherein some of the ingredients are premixed, and the cook needs add only a few extra ingredients, usually eggs, water, and sometimes vegetable oil or butter. While the diversity of represented styles is limited, cake mixes do provide an easy and readily available homemade option for cooks who are not accomplished bakers.
If you're the type who sobs while cutting onions, cries during the final 20 minutes of Bridesmaids or cares whether Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow are friends, you may want to go play Reflex Runner for some light-hearted chuckles. But for that brave individual who, it's been said, has heard ghosts tell stories about him around the fire, prefers medicine balls in a game of squash and is often questioned by police just because they find him interesting (Dos Equis style), prepare yourself for pure visual pain. With that said, let's see the most hard-to-watch injuries in sports.
Inkjet printing is a type of computer printing that creates a digital image by propelling droplets of ink onto paper. Inkjet printers are the most commonly used type of printer, and range from small inexpensive consumer models to very large professional machines that can cost tens of thousands of dollars. The concept of inkjet printing originated in the 20th century, and the technology was first extensively developed in the early 1950s. Starting in the late 1970s inkjet printers that could reproduce digital images generated by computers were developed, mainly by Epson, Hewlett-Packard, and Canon. In the worldwide consumer market, four manufacturers account for the majority of inkjet printer sales: Canon, HP, Epson, and Lexmark, a 1991 spin-off from IBM.
Two hundred Japanese soldiers attacked the trench Lachhiman Garung was defending and, for their opening act, tossed in a few grenades. Seeing the grenades rolling in, one by one, Lachhiman had the bright idea of throwing them back before they exploded--an incredible idea provided you have three hands to throw with. Garung, unfortunately, only had two hands, so that third grenade did what grenades do in those situations and exploded while he was holding it. His fingers were obliterated, his arm peeled like a banana, and his right leg, face and body in general were all badly injured. The two soldiers with him at the time were also hit and killed. Lachhiman was alone, one armed and bleeding profusely, and there were still 200 Japanese out there, getting ready to resume the attack. Realizing he wasn't quite dead yet, Lachhiman drew his gurkha knife and stuck it in the ground in front of him. "No one will pass here today!" he called out before loading his rifle. The enemy soldiers approached, and Lachhiman calmly dealt with the majority of oncoming enemies at point blank range, just waiting for them to arrive. He did this for four fucking hours. With only his left arm.
Hey Ernie - long time reader here. I thought you may find this video interesting and worthy of inclusion on ehowa.com. You like to show kids doing dangerous stunts and breaking bones...here's a stunt my friend and I did where no one got hurt and awesomeness abounds. He's the one breathing the fireball and I'm the one shooting the fireball at his head, so I had the safer job. Speaking of safety - watch the guy in the right of the frame holding the black towel who almost catches a face full of flames. He was the "safety" for my friend, and the towel was there to smother the flames in case Sean's face caught on fire. Yeah, we've done this sort of stuff once or twice before. Enjoy! Damon
This story fully qualifies as WTF of the week, if not month. Chris
Ernie, This is about 1965 - 1971, summer, somewhere on the Australian east coast, between Sydney and Queensland. I was 'bout 15 or so, I lived five minutes from the beach. It takes me back to the best days of my life, check out the prices. My point is, could, or would, you kinda seek out and post similar scenes from that time period from your side of the world, both beach and wherever else. It was the best of times then, family, fun water and sun. Sure, it's nostalgia, but, hey, why not!. Not suckin' up, but, for me, NASA and JPL have done similar to the above theme. Two days ago, I sat glued to the screen, watching Curiosity descend. I felt again the same joy, awe and excitement as when I saw John Glenn fly, it was good then, and it's fantastic now!. (sorry, got something caught in my throat, and a bit of dust in my eyes). Take a richly deserved bow, y'all deserve it. Stu.
After all that I have one question. Who the fuck eats asparagus at the beach?
A Side cap is a foldable military cap with straight sides and a creased or hollow crown sloping to the back where it is parted. It is known as a garrison cap (in the United States), a wedge cap (in Canada), or officially field service cap, (in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries). It follows the style which originated with the so-called Austrian Cap in the 1890s. It has been associated with various military forces from the time of World War I to the present day, and various youth organizations. A convenient feature of this cap is that when the owner is indoors and no coat-hooks are available on which to hang it, then it can be easily stored (by folding it over the belt or, unofficially, by tucking it under a shoulder strap).
During Saddam Hussein's interrogation, the FBI needed an inside man in order to find out more about the Iraqi President's actions during the second Gulf War. Enter George Piro, an FBI field agent who was uniquely suited to the job, being one of the very few members of the Bureau who spoke Arabic. Piro quickly seized on a number of psychological tactics to break Hussein down, from controlling day and night in the dictator's cell, to praising his poetry, and Hussein soon came to believe that he had developed a genuine friendship with the agent. Amongst the revelations of the interrogation was the fact that the warlord had indeed dismantled Iraq's WMD program in the face of international pressure and did not believe that the US would invade in 2003. FBI Assistant Director Joe Persichini called the interrogation “one of the top accomplishments of our agency in the last 100 years.”
Inessa Chimato is a stunning redhead with an incredible figure -- I think she looks a lot like Deborah Ann Woll from True Blood. Inessa is tall with the elegant look of a fashion model but with the body of a centerfold. Anyway, here you can see her busting out of her pretty bikini and in everything else she tried on.
Curtains can be made from varying thicknesses of fabric, each with a differing degree of light absorption and heat insulating qualities. For maximum temperature control, the curtain gap to the window should be small, with minimum convection drafts below or above the curtain. Various architectural structures around the curtain can minimize these air drafts, but usually they are just used for decoration and make rooms feel more cozy. A sheer or net curtain is one that is made from translucent fabric, such as a loosely woven polyester voile or a cotton lace. Sheer curtains allow a majority of light to be transmitted through the fabric, with the fabric weave providing a basic level of UV protection while retaining maximum visibility outward through the curtain. Sheer curtains are sometimes referred to as privacy curtains in reference to their screening abilities; during the day most sheer fabrics will allow people inside the home to see the outside view whilst preventing people outside the home from seeing directly into the home.
