The Samsung Galaxy S II is a smartphone running under the Android operating system that was announced by Samsung on February 13, 2011 at the Mobile World Congress. It is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S, with a different appearance and significantly improved hardware. The Galaxy S II was one of the slimmest smartphones of the time, mostly 8.49 mm thick, except for two small bulges which take the total thickness of the phone to 9.91 mm. On the back of the device is an 8-megapixel Back-illuminated sensor camera with single-LED flash that can record videos in full high-definition 1080p at 30 frames per second. There is also a fixed focus front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video calling, taking photos as well as general video recording, with a maximum resolution of VGA (640×480).
Thatching is the craft of building a roof with dry vegetation such as straw, water reed, sedge (Cladium mariscus), rushes, or heather, layering the vegetation so as to shed water away from the inner roof. It is a very old roofing method and has been used in both tropical and temperate climates. Thatch is still employed by builders in developing countries, usually with low-cost, local vegetation. By contrast in some developed countries it is now the choice of affluent people who desire a rustic look for their home, would like a more ecologically friendly roof, or who have purchased an originally thatched abode.
You know, if these advertising companies keep this up, nobody is going to watch the Super Bowl because we'll have seen all the ads already: here is the teaser trailer for Marvel's The Avengers -- the fuckin Hulk is back -- and the new 2013 Lexus GS looks pretty bad ass.
An air conditioner is a home appliance, system, or mechanism designed to dehumidify and extract heat from an area. The cooling is done using a simple refrigeration cycle. In construction, a complete system of heating, ventilation and air conditioning is referred to as "HVAC". For residential homes, some countries set minimum requirements for energy efficiency. In the United States, the efficiency of air conditioners is often (but not always) rated by the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient is the air conditioner. The SEER rating is the BTU of cooling output during its normal annual usage divided by the total electric energy input in watt hours (W·h) during the same period. Today, it is rare to see systems rated below SEER 9 in the United States, since older units are being replaced with higher-efficiency units. The United States now requires that residential systems manufactured in 2006 have a minimum SEER rating of 13, although window-box systems are exempt from this law, so their SEER is still around 10.
Okay, I love zombies just as much as the next guy... okay twice as much as the next guy. Okay, twice as much as the next five people combined, but even I'm saying this shit has got to stop. First there was Hornaday's Zombie Max Ammunition, then there was Ka-bar's Zombie Killing Knives and now there are Mossberg's Lever Action Zombie Guns. When is this shit going to end and who the fuck decided that lime green is the official zombie color?
Big Ern. (1)...stick figures... You rule...etc. (2)I'm still a student and can only afford to personally relocate abused quadrupeds. (3) more dark skinned ladies, per favore. (4)Maddox (to whose site I believe you referred me many moons back) has an interesting read on his thebestpageintheuniverse.com site that I'm interested to read your thoughts on. Many thanks for the laughs, boners, vomit in my mouth, .... Well everything. Don't stop. Matt
(1) Yes I do. Always have, always will. (2) S'okay, do what you can for your peeps. (3) See below. (4) I've ranted on SOPA/PIPA before but the bottom line is our politicians are bought and paid for; look at the rant that Chris Dodd went on when Obama backed away from SOPA? And the calls for the White House to investigate charges of bribery? Yeah, that's be "no comment" as usual. Dylan Ratigan said it best, GET THE MONEY OUT OF POLITICS. And at the risk of sounding gay, I'd suck that man's dick.
Tattoo inks consist of pigments combined with a carrier, and are used in tattooing. Tattoo inks are available in a range of colors that can be thinned or mixed together to produce other colors and shades. Most professional tattoo artists purchase inks pre-made (known as pre-dispersed) inks, while some tattooers mix their own using a dry pigment and a carrier. In the United States, tattoo inks are subject to regulation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as cosmetics and color additives. The FDA and medical practitioners have noted that many ink pigments used in tattoos are "industrial strength colors suitable for printers or automobile paint." In California, Proposition 65 requires that Californians be warned before exposure to certain harmful chemicals; tattoo parlors in California must warn their patrons that tattoo inks contain heavy metals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.
Quick! What was the most important accomplishment of the 20th century, besides discovering a way to get cheese inside of hot dogs? Landing on the moon, of course. When Apollo 11 touched down on July 20, 1969, the whole world gasped in wonder, therefore causing the global warming that we're now suffering from today. But it was worth it for the pictures. And now think about this: Like the video of your first unassisted steps, the original footage of the moon landing was taped over. We know what you're thinking ... we've all seen the footage of the moon landing. How can it be lost? Well, what we have is an extremely shitty copy, like if the world's only surviving copy of Star Wars was a glitchy VHS recording made off of TV. The original, high-quality version is gone forever.
Cold water causes the constriction of peripheral blood vessels and collection of blood around the major organs of the heart and brain while hot water causes the expansion and relaxation of blood vessels. As a result of these changes in blood vessels your blood pressure will also be altered by changes in water temperature. When you get into a cold pool of water you may initially be gasping for breath. This is a result of the constriction of blood vessels in your lungs and the general mass changes of blood flow in your body as your peripheral blood vessels constrict.
Scummy. Very scummy. Among the documents released in the Friday night document dump by the DOJ were some showing that Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer lobbied for yet more gunwalking even after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry had been murdered with gunwalked guns. Jon
You can watch the Fast and Furious hearings live RIGHT FUCKING NOW. Warning: weasel alert!
Energizer Holdings is an American manufacturer of batteries and personal care products, headquartered in Town and Country, Missouri. The company has its foundation in the Eveready Battery Company, which in 1986 had been sold to animal and human food manufacturer Ralston Purina. In 2000, Ralston spun off Eveready, and it was listed on the New York Stock Exchange as Energizer Holdings, Inc. In 2003 under the leadership of then Chief Executive Officer J. Patrick Mulcahy, Energizer Holdings started expanding into the personal care product sector by buying razor brands Schick and Wilkinson Sword from Pfizer. In October 2007, the company acquired Playtex Products, Inc. for $1.9 billion. The purchase included sunscreen brand Hawaiian Tropic, which Playtex had bought a few months earlier, and Sun Pharmaceuticals Corp., which manufactures the Banana Boat suncreen products. In 2009, Energizer acquired Edge and Skintimate shaving gels from S.C. Johnson & Son.
For the last several years, the Lingerie Football League has played its championship game during the Super Bowl halftime show, and they'll be doing it again in 2012. Even if you aren't a regular viewer of LFL games, the championship game is a great alternative to watching a geriatric Madonna shake her bony ass and Skeletor arms on stage for 15 torturous minutes. Still not entirely on board? Well, I've got a few reasons that just might convince you to switch over to MTV2 during halftime to watch the Philadelphia Passion take on the Los Angeles Temptation. Actually, I've got 31 reasons to be exact. Here are 31 of the hottest players you can expect to see on the field on Super Bowl Sunday.
I for one, welcome our new Nano Quadrotors overlords.
