Pool drains contain water within the pool area while providing a safe play area for children and bare feet. Pool drains are more concerned with the presence of barefoot people and less worried about protecting the house from water issues. A major factor for deciding which pool drain to choose is determining your balance between safety and aesthetics. We all want to have a safe pool environment. For pool decks that get a lot of bare foot traffic, safety and economy may be a higher priority. Plastic perforated covers will be safe on the little feet and will be less costly than metal grating.
A sailboat's pivot point is just behind the mast. Notice that the majority of the mainsail is behind the pivot point. When sailing with only a mainsail, the force that the wind applies behind the pivot point is greater than the force in front of the pivot point. This leads to a sailboat wanting to turn up into the wind when sailing with only a mainsail. To counteract that force, you have to pull the tiller toward the wind slightly. If the wind is strong, and your boat is moving slowly, the rudder might not be able to overcome the mainsail. If you add a jib sail to the front of the boat, it balances out those forces, which makes the boat easier to control.
Last weekend during the Kentucky Derby, it was reported that Tiger Woods' ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn had requested to be seated away from his ex-wife Elin Nordegren at various parties. It was speculated that there was some bad blood between the two, but that doesn't seem to be the case, judging by the fact that they all posed for a fembot-style pic at one of the events.

Actually, that's not a bridge -- although she's close to a pedestrian bridge that crosses Las vegas Blvd -- she's standing on the balcony entranceway to the New York New York casino. Oh and don't be like this lazy son of a bitch leaning up against a post, find me this crosswalk!
Busch Gardens in Tampa is renowned for its insane collection of roller coasters, and the latest has had a POV video released in anticipation of its opening date sometime later this year. It's called the Cobra's Curse, a spinning coaster that admittedly looks like a change of pace compared to the usual Busch Gardens joint. meanwhile, Cedar Point just laughs.
America's fascination with owning more than one automobile, house, investment property, job or career has created the need to carry more and more keys. If you carry a large key chain and have it hang from your car's ignition switch you could be causing damage which will need to be repaired at an auto repair shop at some point. If you carry more than 4-8 keys on your key ring you may damaging sensitive internal ignition switch parts. The weight of a heavy key chain can pull downward on the ignition key/steering lock, causing the barrels inside the lock to wear down. Once these internal parts start wearing down, this is when you may start experiencing intermittent starting problems.
