Head restraints are an automotive safety feature, attached or integrated into the top of each seat to limit the rearward movement of the adult occupant's head, relative to the torso, in a collision — to prevent or mitigate whiplash or injury to the cervical vertebrae. An evaluation performed by NHTSA in 1982 on passenger cars found that "integral" head restraints , meaning a seat back extending high enough to meet the 27.5 in height requirement, reduces injury by 17 percent. But adjustable head restraints -- those attached to the seat back by one or more sliding metal shafts -- only reduce injury by 10 percent. NHTSA has said this difference may be due to adjustable restraints being improperly positioned.
Ronda Rousey upon beating Floyd Mayweather for the ESPY Best Fighter award: "I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” Rousey said, "I'd like to see you pretend not to know who I am now." Added bonus: she's going to beat the living piss out of Bethe Correia in two weeks.
Not a challenge, just a point of curiosity.The white thing in her hand looks like a folded tortilla, and that looks to me like refreied beans on her plate, which makes me think she's eating Mexican. But that yellow thing doesn't jive; it looks more like quiche, maybe? Which makes me think French? Not that we'll ever know for sure.
Thanks for the tip to Margaret Island, So here is the green post that still has the crooked white sticker on it. RJ
Gday Ernie. The "No Proof No Purchase" photo is from a Woolworths supermarkets, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. The computerised cash registers sound an alarm tone to make sure the cashier checks ID before any more items can be scanned. So I just stab people with a fork :-) Cheers Matt
Not a challenge, just a matter of opinion. Whose sunburn do you think is worse, this guy sitting down or this girl laying in bed?
It's a shame that every summer brings a new slew of "people rescuing dogs trapped in hot cars" stories. In fact just a couple of days ago, Country music star Carrie Underwood had to have her brother-inlaw bust her car window after one of her dogs actually locked her out of her car when they stepped on the door lock button. Added bonus: her 4 month old kid was in the car. if you watch the video, they show an example of other people having to break a car window, and resorting to a six foot length of metal pipe to do it. A better option: the Kershaw Funxion EMT Folder -- on addition to a modified tanto blade with partial serration, the Funxion EMT features a cord cutter, carbide window breaker, hex wrench, and carabiner clip. And it's only $24 shipped.
The perfect solution for those corners that always seem to be getting banged up! Protect your walls with fine wooden corner guards, also known as edge protectors, wall guard protectors, corner bead, or corner round moulding. Wall protectors are available in country, flat end, and contemporary styles. They arrive as bare plastic so that you can paint them to match your décor.
I knew this was in San Francisco, just took a while to find it, its on Embarcadero street. (The ocotogonal metal grate in the left of the photo is for a treet and can be seen directly behind you.) Rick
Ernie, I don't know where that Photomat is but if your film has more pics of those 2 girls with their Huge Schnozzes, I think I'd just toss the roll! Thanx for putting me 1st again on the LV pic! Tom
Ha! Actually, Tom you reminded me... no one had nailed the Photoautomat yet, which kind of surprised me because there aren't that many of them. Regardless, this is a challenge. My coffee maker died so I need you to identify this one and show me where I can buy one.
The latest episode of cooking web series ChefSteps Behind the Scenes is an up-close-and-personal demonstration that the phrase “waffle iron” is wholly inadequate, when compared to the myriad things you can do with one. It's called “Waffle Iron Frenzy,” and it shows an ordinary waffle iron being used to make brownies, cakes, casseroles, dumplings, and much more.
Dear Lord baby Jesus, lyin' there in your ghost manger, just lookin' at your Baby Einstein developmental videos, learnin' 'bout shapes and colors. I would like to thank you for bringin' me and my mama together, and also that my kids no longer sound like retarded gang-bangers.
