The original radio broadcast from unidentified USA radio station and it's EMERGENCY BROADCAST announcement from Washington DC.
"Trapped in the belly of the USS Oklahoma. Richard "Swede" Artley didn't see the attack on Pearl Harbor. "I just heard one hell of a bang," recalls Artley. "That was the first torpedo hitting the ship." He figures seven to 10 torpedoes hit the battleship in the early morning hours of December 7, 1941, as Japanese submarines and planes attacked the United States' Pacific Fleet. "The old gal turned over 150 degrees in 15 minutes." Artley spent the next 36 hours in a compartment filling with water. "I prayed a lot, cussed a lot and slept some." He's one of 32 survivors cut out of the massive ship's hull in the days following the Sunday morning attack. By the time rescuers got to him Monday at 6 p.m., the water filled 98 percent of the compartment. Artley figures if they hadn't gotten to him when they did, he would have been dead within another 15 minutes." [read Richard "Swede" Artley's story]
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our secretary of state a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack." [see Roosevelt's speech]
"On 6 Dec 2013 I will be attending a Pearl Harbor 72nd Anniversary ceremony in Des Plaines, Ill. I will be driving Chief Petty Officer Joe Triolo USN Ret to the ceremony. Chief Triolo manned a 50 caliber machine gun on board the USS Tangiers that day and was credited with hitting three Japanese aircraft. This was his third ship since he joined the Navy in 1937. His first ship was the USS Oklahoma and his best friend from back home in West Virginia died on the Oklahoma on 7 Dec 1941." [read CPO Triolo's story]
When they heard the first explosion, it sounded like a training exercise gone awry. But Thomas “Gene” Reinhardt, 92, said when the second one came, shortly before 8 a.m. on Dec. 7, 1941, he and the members of the U.S. Army 24th Signal Company knew it was something much worse. “I heard the first bomb drop. I heard the second bomb drop,” he said. “But I saw the third bomb dropped that started World War II.” Reinhardt, who lives in Belmont, is among a dwindling number of survivors who were on the island of Oahu when the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese. The surprise assailment by fighter planes dropped bombs and torpedoes on U.S. forces over the course of two hours. Thousands of soldiers and sailors were killed, hundreds of U.S. planes destroyed, ships such as the USS Arizona were sunk and the naval fleet was grievously injured.

Best Buy is an American multinational consumer electronics corporation headquartered in Richfield, Minnesota. It also operates in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, and China. The company was founded by Richard M. Schulze and Gary Smoliak in 1966 as an audio specialty store; in 1983, it was renamed and rebranded with more emphasis placed on consumer electronics. Dynex, along with Insignia, are house brands manufactured exclusively for Best Buy. They include discount electronic and computer equipment such as flatscreen HDTVs, Blu-ray players, storage media, data and power cables, webcams, and office supplies.
Here's a moral dilemma that I want you to think about before answering. Man who can legally purchase a firearm does so, but does so on behalf of someone who CAN'T legally purchase a gun. Man goes to jail -- and rightfully so -- for a straw purchase. Now, man who can legally purchase a firearm does so, but does so on behalf of someone who CAN also legally purchase a gun. Is that a straw purchase? Some 27 states (and counting) believe the answer should be no.
On that note, the Heckler & Koch Mark 23, or MK 23, is a weapon system consisting of a match grade semi-automatic pistol, a laser aiming module, and suppressor. It was adopted by the United States Special Operations Command for special operations units in the 1990s. In more than 450 accuracy test firings from a precision firing fixture at 25 meters, MK 23 pistols far exceeded the government requirement, averaging 1.44 inches, with 65 groups of less than one inch. There were four groups of .5 inches, with 5 rounds going through the same hole! Heckler & Koch offered the MK 23 on the civilian market and law enforcement as the MARK 23. The models for the U.S. market initially came with a 10-round magazine, to comply with the U.S. Assault Weapons Ban. The ban has now expired, and the civilian Mark 23 comes with the same 12-round magazine as the government variants, except in a few states that enforce their own bans on magazines larger than 10 rounds. It is the world's largest -- and with it's $2,000 price tag -- and most expensive .45 caliber handgun. But that's cool, because carpe diem and all that shit, you can have it for $1799.78 + 5.99 S/H.
A portable air conditioner is one on wheels that can be easily transported inside a home or office. They are currently available with capacities of about 5,000–60,000 BTU/h and with and without electric-resistance heaters. Portable air conditioners are either evaporative or refrigerative. Portable refrigerative air conditioners come in two forms, split and hose. These compressor-based refrigerant systems are air-cooled, meaning they use air to exchange heat, in the same way as a car or typical household air conditioner does. Such a system dehumidifies the air as it cools it. It collects water condensed from the cooled air and produces hot air which must be vented outside the cooled area via a hose; doing so transfers heat from the air in the cooled area to the outside air.
Ernie, Thanks for EHOWA, LBEH, and all the entertainment over the years. Perhaps this is a bit too soon, but I found it funny (I know, I'm sick…) Nelson Mandela died at 95. But respect where respect is due-that's 5 MPH faster than Paul Walker! Jason
Ernie - this would be the definition of insanity. Cheers!! Mike.
The Porsche Carrera GT is a mid-engined sports car that was manufactured by Porsche between 2004–2007 in Leipzig, Germany. Sports Car International named the Carrera GT number one on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 2000s, and number eight on Top Sports Cars of All Time list. Porsche claims it will accelerate from 0 to 100 60 in 3.8 seconds and has a maximum speed of 205 mph, although road tests indicated that in reality the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-100 mph in 6.8 seconds. The Carrera GT is powered by a 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 612 hp, although the engine in the GT that Rodas was driving when both he and Paul Walker were killed, might have been modified to produce even more power.
And not to get Paul Walker fans all bent out of shape but Ford has revealed the 50th Anniversary Mustang and I have to admit, it looks pretty fucking sweet!
Alberto-Culver is an American corporation with international sales whose principal business is manufacturing hair and skin beauty care products under such brands as Alberto VO5, Andrew Collinge, St. Ives skin care products, TRESemme, FDS, Consort, and Nexxus. The company was purchased and founded in 1955 by Leonard H. Lavin who was an entrepreneur and manufacturer's representative for various other companies. The newly created company was then moved to Chicago and a hundred other products were dropped and the company focused on Alberto VO5 shampoo and hairdressing. In 1958, Alberto VO5 Hairdressing became the number one brand in its category and it still holds that position today; the company's 2012 sales were reported at $1.54 billion.

Ernie - In case you haven't seen this yet, I received this from a former DEA agent and believe it to be accurate. "This is an emboscada (ambush) of the Federal Forces in Zitacuaro, Michuacan, Mexico. See what Mexican drug cartels are capable off doing to law enforcement. This incident happened on June 14, 2010, ten Mexican federal agents were killed and many injured. See the pictures and study them. Notice the impact of the rounds on the vehicles, and then look at the terrain and notice where the shooters were positioned for the ambush and if there was any cover for the victims?" Keep up the great work, Leslie

A W18 engine is an eighteen cylinder piston engine which usually has a single crankshaft with three banks of six cylinders arranged in an inverted broad arrow configuration. An early example is the Isotta Fraschini Asso 750 used to power the Italian Savoia-Marchetti S.55 seaplanes flown by Italo Balbo into Chicago in 1933. This engine used the same layout as a recent series of engines produced by Bugatti - basically a vertical six with two adjacent banks set at 60° each to make a W-18. Subsequently in 1972 Formula 1 rules were changed to outlaw the use of engines with more than 12 cylinders. Rocchi used this module as the basis for a 3½ litre W12 engine for Life Racing Engines in 1988, although this was infamously unsuccessful. Recent W18 engines powered the Bugatti EB 118, Bugatti EB 218, Bugatti 18/3 Chiron and Bugatti EB 18.4 Veyron concept cars in the late 1990s.
Well with an army of Amazon drones right around the corner, two things have been on everyone's minds. First, what happens if an Amazon drone crashes into me or my house -- an event which would make for some very interesting tracking updates -- and the second thing is what other retailer is going to step things up a notch. Petco has joined the frayWho guess it would be Petco?

As of this morning there were some three dozen folks who wrote in regarding the mystery writing on this towel, so I suppose the only fair thing would be to acknowledge the very first one I received...
Is it a Foster's Amber Nectar Towel? Keith K

There are a lot of things that have to happen before you start considering a flask as a Christmas gift for someone in your life. For one, that person needs to
be a drunk like to party all the time. Two, you need to be OK with that. And three, you have to be prepared to actually encourage it with a flask that will make this person want to drink even more. If you've crossed those three hurtles, it may be time for you to dive into the Christmas Flask Gift Guide.

So Kate Moss is helping Playboy celebrate their 60th anniversary and it seems the editorial has hit the internet in advance of Playboy's historic 60th anniversary release in January 2014. I SAY AGAIN, KATE MOSS NUDE IN PLAYBOY. And she looks pretty good, actually.
Okay normally I ask for help identifying a beer but this time it's what's written on a towel; I've cropped and flipped the towel itself and get this. Something-ster's Number N(ine)?
This week Amazon announced they're planning to use unmanned drones to deliver some packages to customers within five years. Cool! How difficult would it be to take over these little Amazon package carrying drones? Turns out, not too difficult at all.
Brazil is the world's leading orange producer, with an output almost as high as that of the next three countries combined (the United States, India, and China). Orange groves are located mainly in the state of São Paulo, in the southeastern region of Brazil, and account for approximately 80% of the national production. The United States is the second largest producer. Groves are located especially in Florida, California, Texas, and Arizona. The majority of California's crop is sold as fresh fruit, whereas Florida's oranges are destined to juice products. Mid-south Florida produces about half as many oranges as Brazil, but the bulk of its orange juice is not exported. The Indian River area of Florida is known for the high quality of its juice, which often is sold fresh in the U.S. and frequently blended with juice produced in other regions because Indian River trees yield very sweet oranges, but in relatively small quantities.

Ernie. Love the site, keep up the good work. The game the girl is playing is Halo 2 and the rifle is the BR55 Battle Rifle. I played way to much of that game in college and recognized it instantly. Thanks. Bill.
Penfolds is an Australian wine producer that was founded in Adelaide in 1844 by Christopher Rawson Penfold, an English physician who emigrated to Australia, and his wife Mary Penfold. It is one of Australia's oldest wineries, and is currently part of Treasury Wine Estates. During the 1940s and 1950s, the company changed its focus and commenced the production of table wines to accommodate changing tastes. This new direction led to experiments by Penfolds' chief winemaker, Max Schubert, who visited Europe following the end of World War II to learn about sherry production. Penfolds operates a number of vineyards in the South Australian wine regions that produce a wide range of grape varieties, including the Barossa Valley in Kalimna (380 acres under vine) where they grow shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, mataro, and eight rows of sangiovese.

Sprinklers that spray in a fixed pattern are generally called sprays or spray heads. Sprays are not usually designed to operate at pressures above 30 lb/in, due to misting problems that may develop. Higher pressure sprinklers that themselves move in a circle are driven by a ball drive, gear drive, or impact mechanism. These can be designed to rotate in a full or partial circle. Rainguns are similar to impact sprinkler, except that they generally operate at very high pressures of 40 to 130 lb/in and flows of 50 to 1200 US gal/min, usually with nozzle diameters in the range of 0.5 to 1.9 inches. In addition to irrigation, guns are used for industrial applications such as dust suppression and logging. Many irrigation sprinklers are buried in the ground along with their supporting plumbing, although above ground and moving sprinklers are also common.

"Do you or anyone you know suffer from any of the following conditions?" I HAD to send this photo to you. I could not believe what I was reading on the freeway (and, yes, I used my phone camera while driving). Since when does one SUFFER being a healthy adult Japanese? And lumped in with all those maladies? Too funny not to pass on. I took the 2nd pic while working on the toilet. Thought it was amusing enough. Keep up the great work on LBEH. Thomas

In the English speaking world of the 18th and 19th century, achievement of a parlour room was a marker of social status - evidence that you had risen above the majority who lived in one or two rooms. As the parlour was the room in which the larger world encountered the private sphere of middle class life, the family's face to the world, it was invariably the best room in the home. The parlour frequently displayed a family's best furnishings, works of art and other status symbols. In the 20th century, the widespread use of the telephone and automobiles, and the increasing casualness of society led to the decline of formal reception rooms in domestic architecture in English-speaking countries. The secondary functions of the parlour for entertaining and display were taken up by various kinds of sitting rooms, such the living room.

As we head into the holiday season, just remember that this was considered fat back in 1985.
The importance of bathtub injuries, particularly submersions and scalds, has long been recognized. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found that, in 2002–2004, bathtubs were the primary locations of nonpool drownings and near-drownings. Hot-water scalds represent the most common and most severe type of burns in young childhood. Importantly, slips and falls are the most common mechanisms of injury in bathtubs and showers, accounting for >80% of injuries. This proportion may be even greater because slips and falls may contribute to other mechanisms of injury, such as submersions and scald burns.
Now I don't want to cause anyone alarm but the next time you want to go kayak fishing off Hawaii, keep this guy in mind. And the next time you want to do some surfing near New York City, keep this 3,500 lb 16 ft Great White shark that swims up and down Long Island, in mind.
Sauteing (from the French saute, lit. "jumped, bounced" in reference to tossing while cooking) is a method of cooking food, that uses a small amount of oil or fat in a shallow pan over relatively high heat. Ingredients are usually cut into pieces or thinly sliced to facilitate fast cooking. The primary mode of heat transfer during sauteing is conduction between the pan and the food being cooked. Food that is sauteed is browned while preserving its texture, moisture and flavor. If meat, chicken, or fish is sauteed, the saute is often finished by deglazing the pan's residue to make a sauce.

Motobecane was a French manufacturer of bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles, and other small vehicles, established in 1923. "Motobecane" is a compound of "moto", slang for motorcycle; "becane" -- which sounds like it's being said with a
-- is slang for "bike." In addition to the standard diamond frame bicycles, Motobecane produced mixte frame versions; the mixte frame Grand Touring had twin lateral stays in place of a top tube, extending from the head tube to the seat tube, while the Super Touring and Grand Jubile had a single top tube sloping down towards the seat tube, but diverging into twin lateral stays just before the seat tube. Later mixte Grand Touring models also used this design. Motobecane also produced a tandem bicycle.
