Muhammad Ali was once quoted as saying, "Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill." If you're like me and are inspired by that quote, you can buy it as a poster, as seen here.

Oh my. You've got a few pennies in there, don't you? I've been sticking $30 in pennies up my ass for the past 11 years! That's 3,000 pennies a day; 21,000 pennies a week; 1,092,000 pennies a year! To date that's 12,012,000 pennies, 8 times the population of Nebraska. Those pennies were in my ass! You think you're better than me? Oh, you're not better than me. You handle my ass pennies everyday. You pick up my ass pennies for good luck. You throw my ass pennies in fountains and make wishes on them. You give my ass pennies to your little daughter to buy gumballs with.
Huh, I never thought I'd say this, but I need help identifying... a children's book? At least that's what I think it is, although Amazon has no record of a book titled, "From Daddy's Boy."
Life of Agony is an alternative metal band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in the summer of 1989 by singer Mina Caputo (then known as Keith Caputo), bassist Alan Robert and guitarist Joey Z. After playing with several drummers, they enlisted Type O Negative drummer Sal Abruscato before recording the debut album River Runs Red after they signed to Roadrunner Records. While touring in 1995 in support of their album Ugly, a fan died after falling from the stage while apparently trying to stage-dive. A security guard and, to a lesser extent, the band were implicated in a lawsuit which was eventually dropped with no charges filed.

Ern, Great job, love the site, etc. etc. I heard that the father of Nick Euphrazio, the marine that was with Carpenter when he jumped in front of the grenade, claims that Carpenter was not actually trying to shield Euphrazio from the blast. I could not find anything on the web about that, so thought I would ask you. If true, then Nick's father is an A**. Nick
The only article I could find that included anything Euphrazio's father may have said was, "I don't want to rain on the kid's parade, but all I remember him saying to me was that he was going to make a bad thing a good situation," he said of Carpenter. "Then all of a sudden, I read bulls--- about how he went right to his statehouse. They [politicians in South Carolina] have no idea what happened that day. If Kyle had laid on a grenade, he wouldn't be here today." Of course this is the same article where a Hospitalman who treated the pair said, "Kyle covered that grenade. Grenade blasts blow up; they don't blow down. If he hadn't done it, what we found would have looked completely different." And then read the comments in this article, most of which were made by marines who knew both Carpenter and Euphrazio. So if I were a betting man, Euphrazio's father was probably just venting because he wasn't happy with the treatment his son was receiving at the time. or he's an asshole, I dunno.
So the other day I happened to stumble across this article on the effects of explosives in confined spaces. It went on to details the explosves in question was called octanitrocubane, and how it decomposes into 8 molecules of CO2 and 4 molecules of N2. I don't have a tremendously strong chemical background, so I on'y picked up bits and pieces, but perhaps the best way to understand what they're talking about is to watch this video of a Russian kid who puts an big ass firecracker into his refrigerator.
