The 8.8 cm Flak 18/36/37/41 -- commonly called the Dreaded Eighty-Eight -- was a German 88 mm anti-aircraft and anti-tank artillery gun from World War II. It was widely used by Germany throughout the war, and was one of the most recognized German weapons of that conflict. The versatile carriage allowed the eighty-eight to be fired in a limited anti-tank mode when still on its wheels; it could be completely emplaced in only two-and-a-half minutes. Several surviving examples are owned by civilians and for a paltry 70,000 to 130,000 Euros -- that's $78k-$145k Freedom Bucks to you and me -- you can join their elite ranks. Oh, plus your $200 NFA tax stamp, of course. And good luck trying to find ammunition for that big son of a bitch, although this particular one comes with four empty casings which I presume can be reloaded.

NOT SAFE FOR LUNCH: An elbow hyperextension injury occurs when a force or pressure forces your elbow past its normal position and bends it backwards. The hyperextension may occur during sports, such as football, gymnastics, basketball, rugby, soccer, or martial arts; during a fall with an outstretched arm; or otherwise direct blow that forces the elbow backwards, such as during a car accident. The hyperextension places a sudden and forceful stress on the tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles. If the force of the hyperextension is stronger than the structure, it may cause inflammation and/or stretching or tearing. Elbow dislocation is also frequently the result of an elbow hyperextension injury, and may occasionally be accompanied by an olecranon fracture, as was the case for Armenian weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan. With cringe worthy photos. And video. I'm so sorry. You're welcome.

Melanie is a feminine given name derived from the Greek "melania", meaning "blackness" or "dark". Borne in its Latin form by two saints: Melania the Elder and her granddaughter Melania the Younger, the name was introduced to England by the Normans in its French form Melanie. However the name only became common in English usage in the 1930s due to the popularity of Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel Gone with the Wind and its 1939 film adaptation, as one of the novel's main characters was named Melanie Hamilton. The name's popularity increased until the 1970s since remaining constant. Melanie was the 80th most popular name for girls born in the United States in 2007 and, as Mélanie, it was the 86th most popular name for girls born in France in 2004.
Huh, strange she would bring her own hair dryer, when the hotel already provided one.
