The Battle of Antietam was fought on 150 years ago today, September 17, 1862, near Sharpsburg, Maryland, and Antietam Creek, and was the first major battle in the American Civil War to take place on Union soil. The battle was over by 5:30 p.m. Losses for the day were heavy on both sides. The Union had 12,401 casualties with 2,108 dead. Confederate casualties were 10,318 with 1,546 dead. This represented 25% of the Federal force and 31% of the Confederate. More Americans died on September 17, 1862, than on any other day in our nation's military history. Several generals died as a result of the battle, including Maj. Gens. Joseph K. Mansfield and Israel B. Richardson and Brig. Gen. Isaac P. Rodman on the Union side (all mortally wounded), and Brig. Gens. Lawrence O. Branch and William E. Starke on the Confederate side (killed). Brigadier General George B. Anderson got shot in the ankle during the defense of the Bloody Lane. He survived the battle wounded but later on in October he died after the inevitable amputation.
Perhaps is this photographer had read "Using Available Light for Indoor Photography, he might have been able to avoid the ghost-light mistakes in this photograph. Fucking amateur.
And on the subject of amateurs, let's talk about guns; specifically, grandmas and guns. As soon as this walking metrosexual came in accompanying his grandma to buy a small handgun for self defense, I was just waiting for somethign bad to happen. And it almost did since the first thing grandma did immediately after the clerk sayd, "she knew what she was doing, immediately," is point the pistol right at his stomach and pull the trigger three or four times. And you'd think that someone would school grandma about shooting with two hands, but nope. In the end she
Jewed negotiated them down from $315 for just the gun, to $280 for the gun and a box of ammo, so all in all she didn't do that bad all things considered.
A slap is a broad stroke made with the open hand or the back of the hand, as opposed to a punch that is made with a closed fist. Slaps are frequently made across the face, but can be also made across hands or any other body part, and can use either the palm of the hand or the back of the hand. The purpose of a slap is often to humiliate, more than injure. A "slap in the face" is a common idiom, dating back to the late 1800s, that means to rebuke, rebuff or insult. In his 2004 text The Naked Woman: A Study of the Female Body, anthropologist Desmond Morris defines what he calls the "cheek slap," which he describes as "the classic action of a lady responding to the unwelcome attentions of a male." Morris categorizes the cheek slap as a display blow, meaning one that is impossible to ignore but doesn't cause much damage.
According to an interview with Steven Spielberg, Lucas visited the set of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, due to come out around the same time as Lucas' film, and marveled at the scope and splendor of Spielberg's as-yet-unfinished movie. At the same time, he was whining about how Star Wars was going to take a steaming dump at the box office because it didn't "live up to the vision that he originally had." Then Lucas had a flash-bulb moment: Since he was so sure that Star Wars would bomb, why not take advantage of Spielberg and make a friendly bet with him? If this half-assed Star Wars thing made more money, Spielberg would get 2.5 percent of Lucas' movie's profits, and vice versa, for all eternity. Care to guess how that one turned out? No need to guess, we'll tell you: Close Encounters of the Third Kind raked in a not-too-shabby $337 million. But that little film called Star Wars? Well, let's just say that it spawned a franchise that made that amount of money 65 times over. And it's still raking in obscene piles of cash today. Spielberg says he still gets begrudging checks in the mail from ol' George.

A taxicab is a type of vehicle for hire with a driver, used by a single passenger or small group of passengers, often for a non-shared ride. A taxicab conveys passengers between locations of their choice. There are four distinct forms of taxicab, which can be identified by slightly differing terms in different countries: hackney carriages, also known as public hire, hailed or street taxis, licensed for hailing on the street; private hire vehicles, also known as minicabs or private hire taxis, licensed for pre-booking only; Taxibuses, also known as shuttles, operating on pre-set routes typified by multiple stops and multiple independent passengers; and Limousines, specialized vehicle licensed for operation by pre-booking.
Here's a four minute trailer for the third season of The Walking Dead. Hint: Carol gets an AK, so now she has a gun that's as manly as her haircut.
It's no surprise that in world of sports, more than a few graying sports legends and power players have found themselves the object of affection of a woman young enough to be a daughter, or even a granddaughter. Hey, some girls place a premium on financial security—sometimes love follows, sometimes pragmatism rules—and for the wizened Hall of Famer or franchise owner, the nature of the relationship matters little. Hey, who are we to judge how people spend their Golden Years and those of a more recent generation who grant them companionship. Okay, well...sometimes there are plenty of reasons to ask questions or level a little scrutiny. These are biggest

Protein bars are targeted to people who are searching for a source of protein that doesn't need preparation. There are different kinds of food bars to fill different purposes. Unlike energy bars, which focus on providing food energy, or meal replacement bars, which intend to replace the variety of nutrients in a meal, protein bars usually lack food energy but also vitamins and dietary minerals. Protein bars are mainly used by athletes or sports people for muscle building. There are protein bars that are taken simply because of the protein only, others have a combination with carbohydrates for recovering muscle tissue after sports. The most popular products are Nutribar by Stella Pharmaceutical, Protein Plus by MET-Rx, PowerBar Performance by PowerBar, Biscuits Chocolat Cereales by Gerlinea, and Clif Bar by Clif Bar.
I've always said that Katy Perry is Zooey Deschanel's face on a porn star's body. In case that doesn't happen, celebrity face math has done something similar using man-power.
Edith Cavell was a British nurse famous for treating countless soldiers, no matter their nationality, and helping as many as 200 Allied soldiers escape from German-occupied Belgium during WWI. When Brussels fell to the Germans in November 1914, Cavell walked away from her British Secret Intelligence Service recruitment to hide wounded Allied soldiers and sneak them out of the country to safety. The soldiers were given fake identification and hidden until they could make it to the Dutch frontier. In August 1915, Edith was betrayed by German collaborator Gaston Quien. German soldiers arrested Edith for treason and subjected her to a court-martial. Cavell admitted that she had personally harbored about 175 men in her home and helped them to escape. Her actions went directly against German military law. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was sentenced to death and executed by a 16-man German firing squad on October 12, 1915. She was in no doubt, one of the greatest nurses during World War I.
