Basil L. Plumley was a United States Army commander, most famous for his actions as a Sergeant-Major of the US Army's 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, at the Battle of Ia Drang (Vietnam, 1965). General Hal Moore praised Plumley as an outstanding NCO and leader in the book We Were Soldiers Once...And Young. The Sergeant Major was known affectionately by his soldiers as "Old Iron Jaw". He was portrayed by Sam Elliott in the film, We Were Soldiers. Basil Plumley died of cancer after 9 days in Columbus Hospice, on October 10, 2012. He is survived by his daughter, Debbie Kimble, a granddaughter, and 2 great-grandchildren. So long, Old Iron Jaw, we hardly knew ye.
Following the presidential debates which, let's be honest, could have been handled better, the internet is full of popular memes that people love. But these memes aren't those. Help us pollute the web with unpopular combinations of images and words. This week: these presidential candidates are villains most foul. And while certainly not my favorite candidate in this year's elections -- ladies, this Bud's for you -- Paul Ryan has done two things recently that have impressed me. First with the VP debates looming this evening, he hasn't attempted to contact The Rack for any advice. That's a solid step in the right direction to me. And secondly, he walked out of an interview when some dipshit reporter attempted to link tax cuts to crime reduction. And I don't think it was the question that angered me so much, it was the condescending way in which it was asked. So I tip my hat Ryan for ejecting, and he can get a third gold star if he lays the smackdown to the current Administration over Fast and Furious. That interview is rehashed here by Cenk Uygur, who (a) chops the interview down to make it look foolish and (b) at the 1:50 mark says something that vehemently disagree with: "some of those crimes are comitted by guns." Uh, you know where I'm going with that one, amirite?
To make gyros, pieces of meat are placed on a tall vertical spit, which turns in front of a source of heat, usually an electric broiler. If the meat is not fatty enough, strips of fat are added so that the roasting meat remains always moist and crisp. The rate of roasting can be adjusted by varying the strength of the heat and the distance between the heat and the meat, allowing the cook to adjust to varying rates of consumption. The outside of the meat is sliced vertically in thin, crisp shavings when done. It is generally served in an oiled, lightly grilled piece of pita, rolled up with various salads and sauces. Gyros were introduced to the United States via Chicago between 1965 and 1968, with such sandwiches are often served at carnivals, luncheonettes or diners. The bread served with gyros in the U.S. resembles a Greek 'plain' pita. The traditional accompaniments are tomato, onion, and tzatziki, sometimes called cucumber sauce.
E, Here are a slug of photos of the death camps of WWII. It's the biggest collect of photos I've seen in one bunch ever. These aren't all Jews either. How some people can say this didn't happen is beyond me. Not long ago the doctor I had moved on and I had to find another doctor. I thought I had found a good one until one visit she started cracking jokes about the death camp And other crap. Needless to say I no longer have her as a doctor. Some people are just sicker than others, that includes doctors! Dan
In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration defines cosmetics as "intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body's structure or functions." This broad definition includes, as well, any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. First a foundation is used to smooth out the face and cover spots or uneven skin coloration. Usually a liquid, cream, or powder, as well as most recently, a light and fluffy mousse, which provides excellent coverage as well. Foundation primer can be applied before or after to get a smoother finish, and usually comes with an applicator brush or be applied with a finger. Some primers come in powder or liquid form to be applied before foundation as a base, while other primers come as a spray to be applied after you are finished to help make-up last longer.

About 20 years ago somebody over at GQ Magazine had a pretty brilliant idea: copy Esquire and put incredible women on the cover every once in a while. The purpose? Ostensibly it's to pay homage to particularly incredible females—women who are as successful and intriguing as they are attractive. But, obviously, the real purpose is selling copies, because, frankly, you could put Kate Upton on the cover of a real estate magazine and it would sell 3 million copies. So today we take a look at the 60 GQ covergirls over the last 40 years. Let me apologize in advance for Phyllis Diller.
Converse is an American shoe company that has been making shoes, lifestyle fashion and athletic apparel since the early 20th century. The company's main turning point came in 1917 when the Converse All-Star basketball shoe was introduced. Then in 1921, a basketball player named Charles H. "Chuck" Taylor walked into Converse complaining of sore feet. Converse gave him a job. He worked as a salesman and ambassador, promoting the shoes around the United States, and in 1923 his signature was added to the All Star patch. He continued this work until shortly before his death in 1969. When the U.S. entered World War II in 1941, Converse shifted production to manufacturing rubberized footwear, outerwear, and protective suits for the military. Widely popular during the 1950s and 1960s, Converse promoted a distinctly American image with its Converse Yearbook.
