Well, thanks to a metric shit-ton of fan outrage, it looks like Brian is back. And since I crossed Seth MacFarlane's name off my list of People To Kill, it better stay that way, too. Also, today I learned that Robert Downey Jr is the voice of Patrick Pewterschmidt. Huh.
"Buy the sea urchins!" This exclamation can be heard every morning at more or less the same time: when the fishermen are back with their booty. Have you ever tried these spiny sea animals? Sea urchins can be found along the whole of the stunning Puglian coast, and you will hear that cry everywhere you go. If you purchase them, the fishmonger will show you how to open the sea urchins or do it for you. It might be a good idea to learn the proper way if you are having a go on your own. As the edible part is nesting on one side only, it would be a shame to destroy it by tackling the wrong part. Special pliers dedicated to that task exist and you will get the best results that way, but a pair of sturdy scissors or simply a sharp knife can also be used for that purpose.
Antiroll Tanks are tanks fitted onto ships in order to improve their response to roll motion. Antiroll tanks are tanks within the vessel fitted with baffles intended to slow the rate of water transfer from the port side of the tank to the starboard side. The use of these tanks were pioneered by Frahm in Germany during the turn of the 20th century and they are often referred to as Frahm tanks. These partially filled tanks consists of two wing tanks connected at the bottom by a substantial crossover duct. The air column above the liquid in the two tanks are also connected by a duct. As in the Free Surface Tanks as the ship begins to roll the fluid flows from wing tank to wing tank causing a time varying roll moment to the ship and with careful design this roll moment is of correct phasing to reduce the roll motion of the ship. They do not restrict fore and aft passage as space above and below water crossover duct is available for other purposes.
So anyway, the origins of this Greene Street photo have been ascertained. And I'll begin this by saying I have no idea why Greene Street in Key West didn't show up on the Greene Street map search, but given that Key West/Fantasy Fest, New Orleans/Mardi Gras, San Francisco/Folsom Street Fair, and Burning Man are always among the first places I search for public nudity, I'm a little embarassed I didn't find this one myself. So while it was indeed Scott who first brought this to light, it was Keith who broke it down for us...
I did a google image-search of the image and found a set of pictures that was from fantasy fest 2012. From this, I searched for Fantasy Fest and found it happens in Key West Florida. The intersection of Greene and Duval is the only one on Greene Street with both traffic lights and crosswalk paint. This intersection has both Sloppy Joe's Bar and Amigos Tortilla Bar, which would lend evidence to the beer in one guys hand. Based on the direction the sign is facing, I have to guess that it would be facing northwest looking up Duval. Keith K
So kudos, Keith. I'll certainly tip a Dos Equis in your honor, kind sir.
The sign outside each of Castle Megastore's sixteen locations in the Valley proudly declares, "Knights and Damsels Welcome." And based upon that photo lineup, this photo was taken at the North 26th Ave location, although it's tough to be sure since the view is pretty obscrured in Street View.
I got my start in computers with a Commodore 64 that my grandfather bought me in the sixth grade. I did my fair share of nerd stuff, but I also did more than my fair share of gaming, too. One of things I was good at (on the Commodore) that I was shitty at (in real life) was basketball. Specifically, One on One: Dr. J vs. Larry Bird. I remember playing The. Living. Fuck. out of that game, with my neighbor Dino, from across the street. In fact, when I tracked down the Commodore 64 intro and closed my eyes, I could almost remember the music note for note. So when a current day article tips their hat to a 30 year old basketball game, you the programmer and player can rest assure you were on to something special.
Brewing in the Nevada predates statehood, as Carson Brewery opened in 1860 - four years before admission to the Union. Brewing in Nevada virtually ceased with statewide prohibition starting one year prior to nationwide prohibition. Only Carson Brewery and Reno Brewery remained to continue production in the 1930s, but statewide beer production had ceased in 1957. Breweries have regained popularity in the state since brewpubs were legalized in 1993. As of May 22, 2012 there are 1,989 breweries in the U.S. This includes both craft and large "macro" breweries - athough all breweries in Nevada meet the definition of the former. Sin City Brewing Company is a Las Vegas-based microbrewery launched by long-time Director of Brewing Operations Richard Johnson, and produced to satisfy both the microbrew savvy drinker and those with a preference for a traditional domestic style beer, Sin City beers accentuate the indulgent nature of Las Vegas.
But not not to be outdone, Jack comes out of nowhere with this...
Here's where this photo was taken. Peanut Island sits just inside the Palm Beach inlet. The north side of the island is shallow, with only knee high water at low tide. On a normal summer weekend as many as 300-500 boats will anchor up to party. In the sixties JFK used to spend allot of vacation time in Palm Beach. The Secret Service had a bomb shelter built at the old Coast Guard station on the south side. The Google Earth photo was probably taken on a Wednesday...... Jack
Looks like both Keith and Jack will undoubtedly wind up on Santa's naughty list this year.
Armani Jeans is a bridge-line collection of denim-related clothing created, in 1981, by Giorgio Armani. Armani Jeans is mainly sold in department stores, although there are 15 freestanding Armani Jeans stores in the world, in addition to an Armani Jeans Cafe in Milan. Some Armani Jeans items are sold in Emporio Armani Stores,and Armani Jeans stores sell Emporio Armani items in the Asian market. This line does not feature Giorgio Armani's signature simplicity. The colors used are more diverse than those found in his higher end lines.
Okay, enough cheesy jokes, I'm out of here.
