A touch-sensitive lamp is one that is activated by human touch rather than a flip, pushbutton, or other mechanical switch. They act on the principle of body capacitance. These lamps are popular as desk and nightstand lamps. The touch-sensitive is not only an ON/Off switch but also a dimmer switch, that allows one to make an electric light brighter or less bright.
So I went and saw Star Trek: Into Darkness this weekend and it was good, very good. The visual effects were nothing shy of absolutely fucking stunning and it's one of those movies where if you don't see it on the big screen in 3D, you're cheating yourself. The storyline was kind of [spoiler!] predictable -- you'll peg Robocop as the bad guy within the first 30 minutes -- but to me the biggest disappointment was the (homage?) to the the reactor scene from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In Darkness, it's New Kirk dying in in the reactor room, and New Spock on the outside looking in. Added disappointment: after New Kirk dies, New Spock does the Khaaaan! scream. But Aside from that no-homage-allowed sticking point, I didn't find it anywhere near as dry as some people claim, but it wasn't as good as the fist one, either.
Car covers can help protect your car parked in the great outdoors from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation, acid rain, bird droppings, wind borne particles, sun fading, the claws of animals and even the prying eyes of thieves (let them guess as opposed to knowing). Inside your garage a quality cover provides a barrier against airborne dirt and foot borne varmints. The use of a car cover is a double-edged sword, as they are both protective and possibly damaging. A cover that does not fit properly may be more damaging than no cover at all. If it is too loose, wind may cause it to flap against the paint, causing severe scratching.
Sunny Leone is a Canadian actress, model and former pornographic actress. She was named Penthouse Pet of the Year in 2003 and was a contract star for Vivid Entertainment. Named by Maxim as one of the 12 top porn stars in 2010, she has also played roles in mainstream films and television shows. And let's be honest, if you're looking for a model to promote your thirts by wearing them -- or in some cases, not weasing them -- she's not a bad choice to make, amirite?
Diamond plate, also known as checker plate, tread plate and Durbar floor plate, is a type of lightweight metal stock with a regular pattern of raised diamonds or lines on one side, with the reverse side being featureless. Diamond plate is usually steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Steel types are normally made by hot rolling, although modern manufacturers also make a raised and pressed diamond design. Used on stairs and catwalks in industrial settings, the added texture reduces the risk of slipping. For this reason diamond plate is frequently used on the interior of ambulances, on the footplates of firetrucks, and in the fabrication of storage for commercial pickup trucks. Diamond plate can also be used decoratively, particularly highly polished aluminum variants.
And in case you were wondering, I post those random factoids to help make you feel smart. At least a little smart.
Remember the auction for Dita Von Teese's 1939 Packard? Well, it sold. Greg
Marines were not at Benghazi. Charlie needs to chill. Terry -- "When the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was overrun on Sept. 11, public outcry erupted over whether security at the installation was sufficient. Much of the confusion surrounded the perceived role of Marine Embassy Security Guards, who it turned out were not present at the time of the attack. A quick-response force was sent to the consulate following the incident, but no Marines are currently stationed there, according to U.S. officials. Had Marines been present, it is likely they could have minimized the damage and loss of life, security experts have said. The attack has been variously described as a protest-turned-violent-riot and a coordinated military-style assault. The troops chosen for embassy guard duty train for both scenarios, as well as everything else that could conceivably happen at the 285 such installations that span the globe." [source]
I know, I know. Only The Rock could make The Rock look like a sissy, right? Well it's all about perspective, people.
If the itch is getting to you every time you drive by a body of water, then you will be hooked the minute you set foot into a boat. The benefits of owning your own boat out weigh the hassles of making appointments for rentals, getting the timing right with a buddy who owns a boat or having to stay at one lake all the time. First things first though, before you buy your own, go out to your local marina and rent one for a few hours. Rentals can run $30 dollars an hour but it makes a great trainer for the novice. Most marinas will walk you through the steps of pulling in and out of the dock, how to tilt your engine etc. If you enjoy renting a boat, then you are ready to buy one.
So that's it. That's me. Back before any of this crazy shit happened. I guess I'm the last person you'd expect to become a superhero. I'm not saying there was anything wrong with me, but there was nothing special, either. I wasn't into sports, I wasn't a mathlete or a hardcore gamer. I didn't have a piercing, or an eating disorder, or 3000 friends on MySpace. My only superpower was being invisible to girls. And out of my friends, man, I wasn't even the funny one. Like most people my age, I just existed.
