The champagne flute is a stem glass with a tall, narrow bowl, commonly used for sparkling wines, flutes are also used for certain beers, especially fruit beers and Belgian lambics and gueuzes. The champagne flute was developed along with other wine stemware in the early 1700s as the preferred drinking vessel for wine shifted from metal and ceramic to glassware. Initially, the flute was tall, conical, and slender. By the 20th century, however, the shape preferred by glassware purchasers had changed from a straight-sided glass to one which curved inward slightly near the lip. The bowl is designed to retain champagne's signature carbonation by reducing the surface area at the opening of the bowl.

No matter how well you position your side view mirrors, there is going to be a blind spot on either side. A great deal of this will depend on your car's design and construction, but there will always be areas that you cannot see. For most passenger cars and trucks, the blind spot mirror is not necessary if you're able to correctly adjust your side view mirrors. However, many drivers do find it simpler to add these aftermarket accessories -- and some larger vehicles come with them as standard equipment. For most vehicles, the optimal location for installation is the upper outside corner on the mirror. However, this doesn't apply to all vehicles, so you might have to experiment with placement in order to get optimal coverage of your specific blind spots.
FRIDAY FLICK: "You see, I had the audacity to beg the Count to allow me to give the birthday toast to Albert. I was so insistent, and such is the graciousness of our host that he reluctantly gave up his fatherly right in order to accommodate a guest, even one as boorish as myself. Young Albert has made far too much of the assistance I gave him in Rome. When I arrived in the catacombs, I watched as the criminals, who tied Albert to a wall and threatened to cut off his finger and send it to his father as evidence of his absuction. The boy's reply to all this was, "Do your worst." Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you: as Albert Mondego, the man!"
