Last month NASA released images were taken between December 21, 2011, and May 8, 2012, while the Mars rover Opportunity was camped on an outcrop informally named Greeley Haven. This is a high-def panorama stitched together from those images and reminds me of Carl Sagan's message to Mars, which he recorded less than a year before his death.
Princess cut diamonds are perhaps the most popular of the fancy shaped diamonds. Princess cut diamonds are relatively new with a shape that is oblong, usually square or almost square, but with a modified brilliant cut arrangement of facets instead of a step cut. Most square or rectangular cuts just don't live up to the round brilliant for sparkle, but princess cut diamonds are designed for getting maximum brilliance from a square cut.
And what do you get when you stitch together A Fistful of Dynamite, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Bridges at Toko-Ri, The Bridge on the River Kwai, True Lies, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Hogan's Heroes, The Wild Bunch, Monsters vs Aliens, The Core, Tropic Thunder, Mission: Impossible III, I Am Legend, A Bridge Too Far, and finally The Long Kiss Goodnight? You get Burning Bridges, that's what.
A cold open in a television program or movie is the technique of jumping directly into a story at the beginning or opening of the show, before the title sequence or opening credits are shown. And while technically not a cold opening since the title screen plays afterwards, two of my favorite opening scenes are both from climbing movies. The first is Stallone's Cliffhanger, where the chick falls to her death. The second is the first six minutes from Vertical Limit, where
Charlie Chris O'Donnell is forced to cut the rope holding his father to keep him and his sister -- Robin Tunney, who I've been chubtastic for ever since her bathtub scene in End of Days -- from falling to their death. This morning I stumbled across an actual rock climber's review of that scene and while it made how drama, it was just too unrealistic to happen in real life. All I know is if I ever decide to go climbing, I'll be sure to pick the right climbing partner, that's for sure. And it sure as hell won't be MMA champ Ronda Rousey , no matter how nude she gets. And I won't forget to bring my rape whistle, either!
I asked a tarot reader: How's the rest of the presidential election going to go? Who will be President for the next four years: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Yes, she had an answer.
Headscarves or head scarves or scarves are scarves covering most or all of the top of a woman's hair and her head. Headscarves may be worn for a variety of purposes, such as for warmth, for sanitation, for fashion or social distinction; with religious significance, to hide baldness, out of modesty, or other forms of social convention. Headscarves may have specific religious significance. Observant married Jewish women, for example, are required to cover their hair, often employing scarves in compliance with the code of modesty known as tzniut. Headscarves were also worn by married Christian women in medieval Europe, and even by some of the unmarried. Headscarves and veils are most commonly used by Observant Muslim women.
Yeah, one of the hardest things about growing up is eventually, you're the one responsible for killing the spiders, no matter how poisonous they are.
Park Road Station is a railway station in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is part of the Queensland Rail City network. It is in a transition precinct between Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the TransLink integrated public transport system. The station forms the branching point for the Beenleigh/Gold Coast and Cleveland railway lines. Platform 4 of this station was intended for use by Gold Coast trains but the curvature of the platform has proved to be unsafe for commuter train usage. This problem has yet to be rectified. Adjacent to the Park Road Station, on the Boggo Road site, is the Boggo Road busway station with the Princess Alexandra Hospital busway station nearby. Both form part of the Boggo Road Busway between the South East Busway and UQ via the Eleanor Schonell Bridge.
The Olympics have a way of radically transforming the lives of athletes. One month a 17-year swimmer can walk down the street and nobody knows who she is. The next she's a bona fide celebrity appearing on cereal boxes and doing interviews on the Today Show. Of course, not every Olympian needs success at the Games to make them feel like a celebrity. Some of them feel like celebrities every time they look in the mirror—because they already have celebrity doppelgängers. And that's the list we have for you today: 15 athletes from the 2012 Summer Olympics who have celebrity look-alikes. Some are more uncanny than others, but there's a definite resemblance with each pair. Aly Raisman and Sarah Silverman? Maybe. Nathan Adrian and Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Sorta. But Roger Federer and Quentin Tarantino? Fuck yes! So, you know, take a look.
