Beck's Brewery, also known as Brauerei Beck & Co., is a German brewery in the northern German city of Bremen and is the world's best selling German beer and sold in nearly 90 countries. Owned by local families until February 2002, it was then sold to Interbrew for 1.8 billion euros. The brewery was formed under the name Kaiserbrauerei Beck & May o.H.G. in 1873 by Lüder Rutenberg, Heinrich Beck and Thomas May. In 1875, Thomas May left the brewery which then became known as Kaiserbrauerei Beck & Co. Although Beck's marketing material claims that it follows the strict Reinheitsgebot, the German Purity Law of 1516 by the Duke Albrecht the Fifth of Bavaria, as with virtually all modern beers, cultured yeast is an ingredient, which was later approved in an amendment to the original purity law. Beck's was the first German beer company to use green bottles. Beck's was the first beer in the United States to be served in 24oz bottles and call those bottles bombers.
Two days after the September 11 attacks, U.S. President George W. Bush stated: "The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden." He added: "It is our No. 1 priority and we will not rest until we find him."
As a kid, I remember I begged and begged for an air rifle, but my family lived in the city and there wasn't really any open places to shoot it safely, so my father always balked at the idea. But eventually my persistence paid off and one day after picking me up from my side job -- odds and ends at Nello Pants Corp, as I recall -- my father had me hop in the back seat and flicked back a blanket to reveal a shiny new Crosman Pumpmaster 760. It was named so because it would fire a .177 caliber BB at 760 feet per second (fps). This is a little bit hotter than the bitch ass Chinese made Crosman 760's they sell now, which max out at 645 fps. I used to shoot from one side of my basement to the other, a span of about 15 feet. The rule was I could only pump it no more than THREE times, since going all the way up to the maximum of ten pumps, would be far too powerful for such close quarters. And fuck all if my father didn't sit upstairs in the living room and count each time I pumped that thing. PUMP-PUMP-PUMP---POP... PUMP-PUMP-PUMP---POP... PUMP-PUMP-PUMP-...PUMP- >ERNIE! I SAID THREE TIMES GODAMMIT!< Now higher up the Crosman food chain -- this higher end model does 1,500 fps -- are some models that equal and in some cases even exceed the power of a traditional .22lr firearm -- .22 Federal bulk does 1,260 fps. These air rifles are expensive, but make no bones about these, these fuckers really shoot.
Boy, I bet this was a very interesting conversation.
A toothpick is a small stick of wood, plastic, bamboo, metal, bone or other substance used to remove detritus from the teeth, usually after a meal. A toothpick usually has one or two sharp ends to insert between teeth. They can also be used for picking up small appetizers or as a cocktail stick. American wooden toothpicks are cut from birch wood. Logs are first spiral cut into thin sheets, which are then cut, chopped, milled and bleached (to lighten) into the individual toothpicks. Maine used to be the leading producer of toothpicks for the United States, however the last toothpick plant in Maine closed in 2003. Sold in packages of several hundred at a time, toothpicks are often decorated with plastic frills or small paper flags.
So you'll never guess who knocked on my door yesterday morning, a short while after I posted yesterday's update? That's right. The motherfucking ATF!

A skin bridge is a penile skin adhesion. It most commonly occurs as a consequence of an improperly healed circumcision, being formed when the inner lining of the remaining foreskin attaches to another part of the penis (normally the glans) as the cut heals. While less common, skin bridges can also occur in uncircumcised men. The condition can lead to painful erections and sometimes requires surgical correction. or you know, self surgical correction if that's your thing.
Tire swings are a form of swing made from a whole tire. These are often simply a new or used tire hanging from a tree on a rope. On commercially developed playground swingsets, oversized new tires are often reinforced with a circular metal bar to improve safety and are hung on chains from metal or wooden beams. They may hang vertically or hang flat, suspended from three or more points on one side. Tire swings can also be used in spinners, where the occupants use their feet to propel the tire.
Party Cove is the popular name given for Anderson Hollow Cove, a cove in Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri that according to The New York Times is the “oldest established permanent floating bacchanal in the country." The cove itself is about a mile long and 200 yards wide. On summer weekends as many 3,000 pleasure boats with around 8,000 aboard gather in the cove lining up in two rows with newcomers running a gauntlet of water cannon and taunts to take their clothes off. In 2007, Major General Bill McCoy, commander of the Fort Leonard Wood Army base, declared Party Cove "off-limits" to Army personnel from the base for safety and health issues after a Fort Wood soldier suffered a broken neck and a soldier and a civilian employee drowned in separate incidents in the cove area that summer.

Finally, an energy drink marketed towards the female consumer -- and they do it so well. In our street tests, this product was selected by almost every female respondent. The design is clean, attractive, and simple -- again, very different than most of the products that are out there pushing aggressive, sexual, or offensive images.
On August 14, 1945, Alfred Eisenstaedt took a picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square, minutes after they heard of Japan's surrender to the United States. Two weeks later LIFE magazine published that image. It became one of the most famous WWII photographs in history (and the most celebrated photograph ever published in the world's dominant photo-journal), a cherished reminder of what it felt like for the war to finally be over. Everyone who saw the picture wanted to know more about the nurse and sailor, but Eisenstaedt had no information and a search for the mysterious couple's identity took on a dimension of its own. In 1979 Eisenstaedt thought he had found the long lost nurse. And as far as almost everyone could determine, he had. For the next thirty years Edith Shain was known as the woman in the photo of V-J Day, 1945, Times Square. In 1980 LIFE attempted to determine the sailor's identity . Many aging warriors stepped forward with claims, and experts weighed in to support one candidate over another. Chaos ensued.
A touch-sensitive lamp is one that is activated by human touch rather than a flip, pushbutton, or other mechanical switch. They act on the principle of body capacitance. These lamps are popular as desk and nightstand lamps. The touch-sensitive is not only an ON/Off switch but also a dimmer switch, that allows one to make an electric light brighter or less bright.
Let me begin by saying I sure am glad this lady got her dog back safely. I haven't been this relieved since I found out I was in Ms Apple's geography class.
In late March of 2011, Smirnov, 20, drove from British Columbia to Seattle, Washington in to purchase a weapon. Via Armslist.com, a gun website that links gun sellers with potential buyers, Smirnov contacted Benedict Ladera, from Kent, Washington, expressing interest in a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber pistol that Mr. Ladera had posted for sale. Mr. Ladera agreed to meet at a local casino but upon finding out that Smirnov was from out of state -- keep in mind that personal firearm sales to persons from another state is a felony -- increased the price of the handgun from $400 to $600. Smirnov then then drove to suburban Chicago to track 36-year-old Jitka Vesel whom through an online dating service in 2008. He found Vesel's address on the internet, and tracked her to her office by gluing a GPS device to her car, prosecutors say. Based on shell casings found at the scene, Smirnov shot her eleven times, DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin said. That means that he stopped firing at one point to reload the gun and continue shooting.
What clashes? What colors don't go together? What can't you wear with what? One color with another? Stripes and more stripes? Mixing patterns? This is a tough question to answer, as there are very few hard and fast rules. Even old rules like no pots and stripes can be thrown out if a good balance is struck. Successful pattern-mixing truly elevates your outfit to the next level — it says you're a person who likes to take a risk, has confidence in their ability to assemble an outfit, and pays attention to the details.
The M79 Osa was designed and manufactured in the former Yugoslavia. It has continued production in Serbia, the Republic of Macedonia, and in Croatia as the RL90 M95. An un-named Arab nation has bought a large number or M79s from Croatia and are now seen with most insurgent groups in Syria; some of which have mistaken the M79 for the Russian RPG-29 rocket launcher, often with catastrophic consequences.
