An automated pool cleaner is a vacuum cleaner intended to collect debris and sediment from swimming pools with minimal human intervention. In a suction-type pool cleaner, water pumped out of the pool via its skimmer or drains is used for locomotion and debris suction and returned after being filtered via pool return or outlet valves. This is the least expensive and most popular type. It traces a random course. This type of cleaner is usually attached via multiple segments of 1.5 inch hose to a vacuum plate in the skimmer, or to a dedicated extraction or "vac" line on the side of the pool. The suction action of the pool's pump provides motive force to the machine to randomly traverse the floor and walls of the pool, extracting dirt and debris in its path. The first automatic pool cleaner was a suction cleaner.
Did you know that if every single person on the planet were to simultaneously make 200,000 phone calls, there would be the same number of total connections as a single human brain in a single day.

In 2007 a German citizen trained his dog -- aptly named Adolf -- to raise his right paw when he was given the command "Heil Hitler"; judges ruled that the man should serve a prison term after suspended jail sentences and fines failed to dissuade him from continuing to display Nazi symbols. The man was sentenced to five months in prison for violating Germany's ban on the Nazi salute.
Oddly enough, Rex, I can tell you exactly what kind of shitgun that is -- it's 8-shot Mossberg 500 Cruiser. I know this for a fact because it's one of the shotguns I keep loaded and hiding out around my house, courtesy of a traffic contest I won on Armslist. Mine arrived as pictured but I've since removed the pistol grip and replaced it with a full-length synthetic stock. On a side note, I think pistol grip shotguns are only good for busting teeth, busting noses, and music videos, so if anyone wants my unused grip, speak now or forever hold your peace.
And while they might be bright red when they hit your dinner plate, shellfish are usually brown, olive-green or gray when alive and in the wild; the dramatic color change during cooking has to do with the way certain biochemicals inside the shellfish react to heat. Lobsters and crabs have a pigment called astaxanthin in their shells. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid pigment: absorbing blue light and appearing red, orange or yellow in color. While the crustaceans are alive, astaxanthin lies wrapped in the tight embrace of a protein called crustacyanin. The protein holds the pigment so tight, in fact, that it's flattened and its light-absorption properties are changed. These biochemicals get separated when a crab or lobster is cooked. Crustacyanin is not heat-stable, so introducing it to a boiling pot of water or a grill causes it to relax its bonds with astaxanthin, unravel and let the pigment's true bold red color shine through.
I have two words for you: BACON COOKIES.

Sure Tiger can bounce a ball on his wedge like a pro, but can he drive a ball into someone's pocket, like Rory Mcllroy? They only get a certain amount of balls so he couldn't get a souvenir. I would have held it hostage for his driver ;-) -ryan
Hi Ernie, I'm not sure if you posted this (NSFW) hideous picture of Miley Cyrus because A) She looks hideous B) Her tattoo is misspelled? I could Swear it says "Just Berathe" Do you see it as well? Cheers! Randy
It's here! It's here! More Russian surplus 54R is here! Sportsmans Guide's shipment of $91.19 for 440 rounds (20.7 cents/round) has arrived; now that's not quite as good as Cheaper Than Dirt's 20.2 center per round, but I will never ever forgive CTD for price gouging in the dark days following Sandy Hook. And I hope you don't either. Plus Sportsmans' has a coupon "SH1452" for FREE shipping, which really makes a difference on a 45 lb ammo order.
Today, the Quaker Oats company states that "The 'Quaker man' does not represent an actual person. His image is that of a man dressed in the Quaker garb, chosen because the Quaker faith projected the values of honesty, integrity, purity and strength." However, early Quaker Oats advertising dating back to 1909 did, indeed, identify the "Quaker man" as William Penn, the 17th-century philospher and early Quaker, and referred to him as "standard bearer of the Quakers and of Quaker Oats." Resembling classic woodcuts of Penn's likeness, starting in 1877 the figure was depicted full-length, sometimes holding a srcoll with the word "Pure" written across it. In 1946, graphic designer Jim Nash created a black-and-white head-and-shoulders portrait of the smiling Quaker Man, and Haddon Sundblom's now-familiar color head-and-shoulders portrait debuted in 1957.
Yesterday I linked this list of animals which may have been harmed during the filming of a movie. One those mentioned was Life of Pi where it's alleged the tiger damn near drown, and that really caught me by surprise because there's so much CGI in that movie, I'm surprise they had to put anyone (or anyone) in danger.
