Basic Instinct is a 1992 erotic thriller film directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Joe Eszterhas, and starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone. The film follows a police detective, Nick Curran (Douglas), who is investigating the brutal murder of a wealthy rock star. During the investigation Curran becomes involved in a torrid and intense relationship with the prime suspect, Catherine Tramell (Stone), an enigmatic writer. Even before its release, Basic Instinct generated heated controversy due to its overt sexuality and graphic depiction of violence. Following the theatrical version, the film was first released onto VHS in an unrated version in 1992, running at 129 minutes. This was followed by a DVD release in 1997, in a "barebones" format that contained the R-rated version.
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The TACTICAL STOCKINGS were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
Curacao is a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the laraha citrus fruit, grown on the island of Curacao. Curacao liqueur was first developed and marketed by the Senior family in the 19th century. To create the liqueur the laraha peel is dried, bringing out the sweetly fragranced oils. After soaking in a still with alcohol and water for several days, the peel is removed and other spices are added. The liqueur has an orange-like flavor with varying degrees of bitterness. It is naturally colorless, but is often given artificial coloring, most commonly blue -- achieved by adding food colorant E133 Brilliant Blue -- or orange, which confers an exotic appearance to cocktails and other mixed drinks.
First, a pretty easy photo challenge. What's this product with the Pi logo?
Today's Google maps challenge is a two parter: not only must you find this tank on Streetview, but I'll need you to identify what model, as well.
Frank Sinatra is still the pride of Hoboken, New Jersey, even though the crooner had little use for the town -- which he once called a sewer -- before heading out west to Southern California. After dying at age 82 in 1998, he was buried in a cemetery near Palm Springs, California, with a bottle of Jack Daniels and a pack of Camel cigarettes — his two regular companions — tucked into his suit. So I suppose it comes as no surprise that on what would have been Frank's 100th birthday, Jack Daniels has released Sinatra Century whiskey which can be your for the paltry sum of $500 per bottle. Oh don't bitch, just go on and buy it, you total pussy.
Hi Ernie, you can find your Gantry Crane located in Frankfurt, Germany with a look from across the channel here. You may think that the streetview isn't correct because of the missing new construction, but the Raab Karcher building in the back lines up nicely and streetview is from 2008/2009. Mark
Hey Ern, here's an overhead view of the crane in Frankfurt that quite possibly had a distratcted operator at the time this pic was snapped, along with a streetview. Looks like it was taken some time after Gmaps flew over, judging from the glass tower in the back being barely past foundation construction. Also, it appears that the aerial is maybe a different crane? Streetview shows a couple different heavy lifters working the channel, so..Busy area. Cheers! John
Old and busted: Redskins fans getting blowjobs in the stadium during the game. The new hotness: Bills fans fucking in the parking lot after the game.
The Nokia 3310 mobile phone was released in the fourth quarter of 2000. It is considered one of the best selling phones of all time, selling 136 million units according to Nokia's press release from 2005. Indestructible Nokia 3310 is the nickname given to Nokia's 3000 series mobile phones and customer review parodies poking fun at their durability and heavy weight. The joke typically manifests itself in images, in which the Nokia phone is shown to be an incredibly powerful or destructive force.
