Thomas Lipton began travelling the world for new items to stock in this store, one such item was tea, since sales had doubled from £40 million from the late 1870s to £80 million by the mid-1880s. However, he believed the price was far too high, so in 1890, he purchased his own tea gardens in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, and packaged and sold the first Lipton tea. Staying true to this vision, he arranged packaging and shipping at low costs and sold his tea in packets by the pound, half pound, and quarter pound, with the advertising slogan: "Direct from the tea gardens to the teapot." Lipton tea bags were an immediate success in the United States.
Alpha Gamma Rho is a social, agriculture fraternity in the United States, currently with 70 university chapters. The fraternity considers the Morrill Act of 1862 to be the instrument of its inception. Having been signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862, it provided land and other financial supports to establish one institution of higher learning in the agricultural and mechanical sciences within each state. Alpha Gamma Rho, referred to as "AGR", was founded when two local fraternities from Ohio State University and the University of Illinois met at an International Livestock Competition in Chicago.
So the United States is out of the World Cup and with a respectable 2-1 loss, Team USA heads back home. But the real star of the show was the USA goalie, Tim Howard. During the game, he stopped so many goals, the internet turned him into a meme of things he could have saved. Here is a collection of the best.
What day did most signers of the Declaration of Independence actually sign the document? Aug. 2, 1776.
I am a lover of all things 1968 Dodge Charger. Unfortunately, not all share my sentimentalism. In 1968, Chrysler Corporation unveiled a new ad campaign featuring a Bee with an engine on its back. These cars were called the "Scat Pack". The Coronet R/T, Super Bee, Dart GTS and Charger R/T received bumble-bee stripes (two thin stripes framing two thick stripes). The stripes were standard on the R/Ts and came in red, white or black. They could be deleted at no cost. The 1968 model year Charger sales increased to 96,100, including over 17,000 Charger R/Ts. And I don't know how the fuck this happened, but comehow the 1968 Dodge Charger came the car'de'jour for villians, as testified by Vanishing Point and Bullitt.

Old and busted: Insanely low landing as performed by Turkish F-16 at the RAF Waddington Airshow. The new hotness: Insanely low landing as performed by Eurofighter Typhoon at the RAF Waddington Airshow. And what nation is that plane from? Here's a screen capture of the tail emblem, which given the yellow and red colors I first thought Spain, but Spain marks their emblems on the fuselage and wings. So c'mon my aerophiles, what gives?
Mackevision is proud to be along with other world-class VFX studios part of this saga: Game of Thrones, Season 4.
In April 1987, seven-year-old Michelle Snow was killed by a lawn dart thrown by one of her brothers' playmates in the backyard of their home in Riverside, California. "One kid tossed his Jart too far and too high, sailing it over the backyard fence and into the front yard, where Snow's daughter, seven-year-old Michelle, was playing with her dolls. The Jart came down right on her and, with what researchers estimate as 23,000 pounds of pressure per square inch, penetrated her skull." In the previous eight years, 6,100 people had been sent to the emergency room due to lawn darts. Out of that total, 81 percent were 15 or younger, and half of them were 10 or younger. On the week the commission voted to ban the product, an 11-year-old girl in Tennessee was hit by a lawn dart and sent into a coma. Due in part to Snow's death, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reinstated the outright ban on lawn darts on December 19, 1988.
CRC Industries is a manufacturer and distributor of industrial chemicals for maintenance and repair of marine, electrical, industrial, automotive and aviation equipment. CRC is headquartered in Warminster, Pennsylvania, and markets products through subsidiaries in the United States, Australia, Germany, Belgium and New Zealand., The company was founded in 1958 by Charles J. Webb II and Norman Larsen as Corrosion Reaction Consultants, Inc to produce an its 5-56 anti-corrosion and lubricant spray. The company has been owned by Berwind Group since 1981. Now see, if I didn't know any better, I'd say 5-56 was just some cheap Chinese knockoff of WD-40.
I hate the New York Yankees as much as any other red Sox fan, but there is one pinstripe wearing son-of-a-bitch that I've always respected. Derek Jeter. The Yanks drafted him, farmed him up from college and from the minute he put on the pinstripes he's had a huge impact in every game he's played in. He's one of the most talented players to ever play for one of the most successful teams in baseball history. Always a great player, always giving 100%, and win or lose always gracious. He's been loyal, he's never flirted with free agency for a better paycheck, and now he's showing the utmost in class by retiring at a point where he acknowledges his best years are behind him. You know, instead being selfish and riding the nostalgia wave for, "just one more season." Yes, Brett Favre, I'm looking at you. And to top it all off, his little black book is the Who's Who of the hottest ladies in Hollywood. The guy really does have a charmed life and seems genuinely grateful for it. I gots nothing but re2pect for #2, and I hope he puts on a truly remarkable performance in his last All-Star Game. I think the only bad thing I can say about the guy is he didn't play for Boston. ... ... ... Now go home and get your fucking shinebox!
Derek Jeter led off the first for the AL and was greeted by a prolonged standing ovation. Every time it seemed to be fading a bit, the ovation picked up volume. National League starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy respectfully backed away from home plate to let Jeter have not only center stage, but pretty much the entire stage. The NL starting pitcher, Adam Wainwright, placed his glove on the mound and walked a respectful distance away. Jeter doffed his helmet, and acknowledged the cheers. "Adam had his glove on the mound, and I tried to tell him to pick it up, let's go," Jeter said. "But he took a moment and let the fans give me an ovation, which I'll always remember. He's one of the best pitchers in the game and for him to do that says a lot about him and how much of a class act he is." Jeter then responded to this outpouring of respect and affection with a solid double down the right-field line. And now, the hottest wives and girlfriends of the MLB All-Star game!
The cat o' nine tails is a type of multi-tailed whip that originated as an implement for severe physical punishment, notably in the Royal Navy and Army of the United Kingdom, and also as a judicial punishment in Britain and some other countries. And since there are two of them laid over that wooden beamn, I presume this photo was taken at the BDSM themed Folsom Street Fair, in San Francisco during Leather Pride week.
Yesterday I took the TT in for an oil change and as I was pulling into the dealer, I pulled up behind this sweet ass 550hp jaguar F-TYPE R. Later when I got home, I did some Googling about Jaguars and such, and stumbled across some new technology they have coming down the pipe. It's almost an exact copy of the features of an old Playstation game, Gran Turismo 3, were you had to "qualify for a license." To help you do so, the game automatically highlights the optimal path through the turns; following the highlighted route yields the best track times. Imagine if that kind of technology could be incorporated into a real life winsehield, right? Well wonder no fucking further, becauyse Juguar is all over that shit. Complete with ghost car image.
For the most part, I'm not a tequila person, so if I had to choose between Olmeca and Jack Daniels, that's an easy one; Jack and Coke, please. But if forced to choose between two tequilas, such as Tres Generations or Don Julio, I dunno which I'd pick. But I do know that after all that fucking tequila, I'd wind up in the running for the dumbest face tattoo.
State Route 23 is a state highway which runs roughly from Fillmore to Malibu, and consists of three distinct sections. The southern section begins as Decker Canyon Road near Trancas in Malibu, where Route 23 intersects with the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). This portion provides numerous beautiful vistas of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean during daytime, but extreme caution is advisable, especially as the road nears the PCH. The middle section, known as the Moorpark Freeway, is a major route for traffic headed between Thousand Oaks and Moorpark. The northernmost section begins at State Route 118 in Moorpark, and heads north as Grimes Canyon Road through orange groves and sandstone cliffs.
