The Rolling Stones logo, the iconic tongue image – forever synonymous with the band – was designed by art student John Pasche in 1970, after the band became frustrated by designs provided by their label Decca, which they saw as bland. The logo was commissioned for £50, but The Rolling Stones were so pleased with the design they gave Pasche a bonus of £200. The tongue logo first appeared on their 1971 album Sticky Fingers, and has featured alongside the band's material ever since and is arguably the world's most famous rock logo.
Taxis, Turkish baths, and pickpockets. No, it's not a scene out of Airplane! These are all things that Budapest is well known for. But did you know some of the hottest burlesque models in the world hail also from Hungary's capital city?

Bill Nye the science guy. We probably all saw his shows in grade school but did any of us remember much of what he said? Well here are 30 science facts so you can at least pretend you know what you're talking about.
It seems Kurt went all zoom-and-enhancey on the mysterious Barcelona photo...
hey Big E! Can't find the exact spot, as you can see by the hotels web site, it will not go to there in street view. If you go to the hotel's website, look at the middle thumb nail on the bottom. Same sign, and archway and detail on the wall by the sign. Then it was off to this website, where not only did I learn there were Jews in Barcelona, Carrer de la Volta Del Remei intersects with Carrer Ferran, it also intersects with Carrer de la Boqueria. Letâ€™s guess, google maps goes everywhere except those two streets. Then I found this website and found it is called the Arc de la Volta del Remei. A little more than half down his page is the picture of the archway, with the yellow square SPITZ sign, and what looks like the same sign with the black arch over it. Then I found this pic. Damn you google street view. If you want to learn more about Jews, you can use this PDF link, the arch is discussed on bullet number 9. Peace, Kurt
Dude I just saw a local news promo for WFSB in CT about some child who apparently ordered a cell phone case on line and got a pistol in the mail. I smell bullshit. I did not catch when they plan to air the segment and I watch infrequently, keep an eye on WFSB to see the story. Karl
Close, but no banana: Young boy orders "dangerous" airsoft gun from Amazon. With bonus quote from mom, "I was very upset knowing that my 12-year-old son was able to buy a gun online," she said. So yeah, there's that. And it's official. Huge boobs or not, I really, really don't like Christina Hendricks.
Candles may be pretty to look at but they are a cause of home fires — and home fire deaths. From 2006-2010, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 11,640 home structure fires that were started by candles. These fires caused 126 deaths, 953 injuries and $438 million in direct property damage. Candles caused 3% of reported home fires, 5% of home fire deaths, 7% of home fire injuries, and 6% of the direct property damage from home fires in 2010. Remember, a candle is an open flame, which means that it can easily ignite anything that can burn, so keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn.

Ernie - I've been a fan for a long time (around '00-'01). Stationed in Turkey and noticed this past week that you are now blocked here by the Turkish government. They cite a law put in place many years ago. Easy to get around with a VPN, but still... The Turkish PM should be ashamed of limiting free speech. I am baffled at how he can justify banning youtube and twitter too. Can't wait to leave this shithole. Keep up the awesome work brother!
hey Ernie, that restaurant is no longer available for lease. here is the restaurant that now occupies 712 Duval Street in Key West, we ate there a few weeks ago, not too bad. Jeb
Originally a name designating a single permanent marker, the Sharpie brand has been widely expanded and can now be found on a variety of previously unrelated permanent and non-permanent pens and markers formerly marketed under other brands. They are considered non-toxic for "normal uses", meaning writing on posters, soccer balls and such. Sharpie is not meant for skin but is not dangerous with incidental exposure. Some products have been reported to be able to remove this product from the skin, such as rubbing alcohol, denatured alcohol, nail polish remover, facial cleaning pads, toothpaste, and even deodorant. However, the ink wears off on its own within approximately two days as the ink is on skin cells that are constantly being shed.
The Avro Vulcan is a jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A.V. Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the riskiest option. The Vulcan had no defensive weaponry, initially relying upon high-speed high-altitude flight to evade interception. Since retirement by the RAF one example, B.2 XH558, named "The Spirit of Great Britain" has been restored for use in display flights and air shows, whilst two other B.2s, XL426 and XM655, are kept in taxiable condition for ground runs and demonstrations at London Southend Airport and Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield respectively.
