Slipping a punch is a technique used in boxing that is similar to bobbing or weaving. It is considered one of the four basic defensive strategies, along with blocking, holding, and clinching. It is performed by moving the head to either side so that the opponent's punches "slip" by the boxer. Ehow has a little write up on how to slip a punch, but to me that's kind of like reading an article explaining how to dance. You can read the words, but they don't really mean anything. In order to really appreciate dancing, you'd have to watch the likes of Ginger Rogers and Fred Estaire, or I suppose, this couple (DAT ASS!) -- but the same holds true for slipping a punch; it's got to be seen to be appreciated. And without a doubt the very best there ever was, is, and always will be, is none other than Muhammad Ali (sorry for the gay music). A nice GIF of that slipping sequence around the :10 second mark can be seen here, and really highlights just how great Ali is. Absolutely none of those punches hit their mark, missing only by fractions of an inch.
So, going back to the "How To Slip A Punch" thing from Ehow, here is Anderson Silva the -- recently former -- UFC Middleweight Champion, right up util he pulled this stunt. That's the best video I could find, and really doesn't show a good angle of the punch that landed him on his ass, but if you check out the When Showing Off Doesn't Work Out – Anderson Silva Knocked Out GIF, you'll see Weidman's left connect and spin Silva's face about 90 degrees to the side. It's pretty much lights out at that point.
Captain Tony's Saloon is a bar located in Key West, Florida, and has been patronized through the years by many well-known artists, writers and celebrities. The building housing Captain Tony's Saloon has a history as colorful as the town of Key West itself. By the 1930s, a local named Josie Russell bought the business and created Sloppy Joe's Bar. This was where Ernest Hemingway spent most of his evenings between 1933 and 1937. In 1938, when the building's landlord raised the rent one dollar per week, Russell and his customers picked up the entire bar and moved everything to Sloppy Joe's current location at 201 Duval Street. The bar then went through several iterations until 1958, when Captain Tony Tarracino, a local charter boat captain, purchased the bar and named it Captain Tony's Saloon. As Captain Tony's, the bar is where Jimmy Buffett got his start in Key West in the early '70s, and was often paid in tequila. On occasion, Jimmy will make surprise appearances at the bar, but only performs at his own place around the corner called Margaritaville Cafe.

When kept as a talisman, a horseshoe is said to bring good luck. Some believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down, is bad luck as all the good luck will fall out. Others believe that the horseshoe should be hung the other way, with the ends pointing down, as it will then release its luck to the people around it.
Ern, Don't know if you came upon this in your normal day, but this was fascinating to me; especially the rusted engines pics. They were magnificent machines. -Ron
Long time follower and know how you and us followers feel about animals and people who abuse them. Here is a link that should be followed if I find out more will send it but you are probably better at the searches than I. Steve
if I were the judge presiding over that case, I'd give that whore two options -- and these would be the same options I would offer to any person convicted of animal abuse. I can either sentence you to jail, or you can suffer the same punishment as you inflicted upon the animal, be it dragging, starving, beating, whatever. So in this case, she could choose: spend a few years in jail, or get drug around a city block by a police cruiser. The choice is yours.
Books based on Full House are geared toward children primarily ages 8–14. Warner Brothers, the owners of Full House, would not permit others to use their characters, and selected who could write books based on the TV series. As such, the books are generally considered canon, but take place in a separate continuity or fictional universe known to fans as the Book Universe. The series included a series titles Full House Stephanie. These 33 books were written from the point of view of the Tanners' middle daughter, Stephanie Tanner. They take place with Stephanie in a different middle school, likely because of a slightly different redistricting plan compared to the one mentioned in season seven's Fast Friends.
