First my cable provider, now my cell provider. I just might be headed back to my old school flip phone after all.
The red-eye effect in photography is the common appearance of red pupils in color photographs of eyes. It occurs when using a photographic flash very close to the camera lens (as with most compact cameras), in ambient low light. The effect appears in the eyes of humans and animals that have no tapetum lucidum, hence no eyeshine, and rarely in animals that have a tapetum lucidum. The red-eye effect can also be seen when one human observes another when there is a bright lightsource nearby. This however is very difficult.
Ah, America... what a country! Lie to a judge about how much money you have, and they call you a criminal. But when you lie to Congress about how you sold guns to criminals and they call you Attorney General! P.S. Senator John Cornyn for President.
And like the ATF, Nazis make good villains. Many long-running movie or comic book series end up having the heroes face off against them sooner or later. In fact, possibly the only thing worse than Nazis are those crazy people who want to recreate Hitler's Germany in the modern world: neo-Nazis, white power skinheads and other white supremacists. It's bad enough that people held such blindly hateful beliefs around the time of World War II, but in our modern, supposedly more tolerant times, extreme racism is even more shocking. Here are the top twenty most disturbing depictions of neo-Nazis in cinematic history.
Although peeling a tomato is not an extremely common method in many home kitchens, it is a very useful process to be familiar with. Some recipes will call for a tomato to be peeled and seeded in order to rid the tomato of any bitter taste that the peel and seeds can contain. Remove any stickers and wash the tomato thoroughly, and cut a very shallow X on the bottom of the tomato. Prepare a bowl of ice water and set it aside. Place a pot of water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Then, drop the tomato into the boiling water. Once you notice any skin peeling off the tomato, or that 30 seconds is up, quickly remove the tomato and place it into the prepared bowl of ice water. Let the tomato sit in the ice bath for at least five minutes. Once the tomato has been chilled, remove it from the ice water and peel the skin off with your hands. This method can also be used for peeling peaches and plums.
A few times a year, I broadcast some "ramblings from Alek" about misc. stuff. As a middle-aged suburbanite Dad, my life/words probably aren't all that exciting (are you actually interested in watching me mow my lawn ... or seeing the 1998 Subaru Outback click over 100,000 miles?) but many people enjoy the photography. African Safari Pictures: It's taken almost 2 years, but the initial set of pictures from our African Safari Family Trip are now online. We were incredibly fortunate to be able to do this trip thanks to my super-awesome wife Wendy who works in the adventure travel biz. Lunar & Solar Eclipses: While African animals can be unpredictable, the timing/location of eclipses is well known. So I had some fun taking pictures of the Lunar Eclipse on December 10th, 2011 and the Solar Eclipse on May 20th, 2012. I usually shoot the moon/sun setting to the West over the mountains, but for a change of pace, here's a semi-nifty picture of the rising full moon taken with a borrowed "big dog" lens. I'm thankful that my life continues to go well and I hope the same for you. alek
An exit sign is a device in a public facility such as a building, aircraft or boat, denoting the location of the emergency exit, guiding people to the closest exit in case of fire or other emergency. Most relevant codes require exit signs to be permanently lit. Most exit signs around the world are in pictogram form, with or without text supplement. There has been a shift towards the adoption of such exit signs in the recent decade. Exit signs are designed to be absolutely unmistakable and understandable to anyone. A small minority of nations adhered to the exit signs that show the word "EXIT" or similar in another language. Since visibility may be reduced in a fire, due to smoke or failure of electric lighting, the sign is often permanently illuminated.
father Bullet Tooth Tony, for I will sin: watch interviews and learn how to become involved in Cockroaches, which from what I understand is kind of like Snatch for us Yanks.
Some people mix their Coca Cola with Wild Turkey but eh, that's not for me. I prefer to mix Coke and Jack Daniels.
Ernie, this is how I know Hell is awaiting my arrival. I was reading the story that shows the face of the victim in Miami who was attacked by a "cannibal". Bad enough this poor bastard has to go through this, but you would think the on-line editors would be a little more careful of the random advertisements that appear below his picture. ..... Bret

The action and what's going on may be present in the scene, but do you know what's really taking place behind the scenes of your favorite movies? In this gallery are the greatest film classics and a glimpse into the look behind the camera to give you the bigger picture. Or as I call it, " before George Lucas fucked everything up with computer animation."
