If you believe in UFO's, here's an account of a sighting that happened in Scarborough, Canada back in 2009. If you're a fan of conspiracy theories, it happened at exactly the same time this photo was taken, too.
If you look across the street from D&D Auto Body in San Francisco, you'll see there's been some serious construction done since this photo was taken.
A carbine is a long arm firearm but with a shorter barrel than a rifle or musket. Many carbines are shortened versions of full length rifles, shooting the same ammunition, while others fire lower-powered ammunition, including those designed for pistols. One of the more unusual classes of carbine is the pistol caliber carbine, which were developed as companions to the popular revolvers of the day, firing the same cartridge but allowing more velocity and accuracy than the revolver. The primary advantages of a carbine over a pistol using the same ammunition are increased accuracy due to the buttstock and longer barrel (and with it, sight radius), relatively low muzzle blast/flash/recoil, higher muzzle velocity and energy of a longer barrel for increased wounding potential and penetration. These were carried by cowboys, lawmen, and others in the Old West; the classic combination would be a Winchester lever action carbine and a Colt revolver chambered in .357 Magnum or .44 Magnum.
Modern equivalents also exist, such as the Beretta Cx4 Storm shares magazines with many Beretta pistols, and is designed to be complementary to the Beretta Px4 Storm pistol. The Hi-Point 995 Carbine is a cheaper alternative to other pistol caliber carbines in the United States and its magazines can be used in the Hi-Point C-9 pistol. One less-noted advantage of PCCs is their lower muzzle report compared to more powerful rifles; because they are less noisy when fired, they are less likely to cause permanent hearing damage when fired indoor without hearing protection - this can be an important consideration during home defense. Furthermore, PCCs may not be as legally restricted as comparable handguns, depending on the jurisdiction.
Okay, pretty serious photo challenge here, and you'll need a passport and some vodka for this one. Where can I find this huge ass roadside chopper made out of scrap metal? It's somewhere in Russia (Ukraine?) and it's near a wolf monument. That's all I can give you.
Hi Ernie. The picture of the Kid Rock supporter was taken in front of 327 Duval St. in Key West. Love the site. Efrain
Ernie - That's at 327 Duval St., which per Google maps is a store called 'Artisans'. The manhole/utility access covers gives it away. All hail painted boobies! Chris
Backdraft is a 1991 action thriller film directed by Ron Howard and written by Gregory Widen, about firefighters in Chicago on the trail of a serial arsonist who sets fires with a fictional chemical substance, trychtichlorate. Fire fighting professionals have noted that most real structure fires differ from what is shown in the movie by having smoke conditions that obscure vision inside the building almost completely. Backdraft received a positive reception from critics; the film currently holds a 73% 'Fresh' rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the consensus "It's not particularly deep, but Backdraft is a strong action movie with exceptional special effects."
Meanwhile, somewhere in New York City... West 46th and Something-Brazil? Where the fuck is that?
It's true. It is like crack, isn't it? Quick and simple. And addicting as fawk. As for Sheep Reaction, I've always known I have reflexes like Groot, so it came as no surprise that DJ beat me with a 0.1968. But then I was all Daaamn! when John sent in a 0.1848 ... I seriously doubt anyone will beat that.
Rick Wetzel and Bill Phelps are the chieftains of pretzel empire Wetzel's Pretzels. In 1994, the two were working in marketing at Nestle USA. On a business trip to Seattle, the colleagues, though not friends at the time, started kicking around the idea of pretzels as a new snack-food business. An eavesdropping stranger told them soft fresh-baked bread pretzels were really tasty. The pair got excited and started mapping out a business plan that night at a bar. They wrestled with finding a name that could be trademarked. Everything Phelps wanted had already been taken. Wetzel, who had been teased in the schoolyard with "Hey Wetzel, you pretzel," kept his mouth shut. A friend who was a marketing consultant finally pointed out the obvious for a name.
