"In the initial taste tests, the beer was so sour no one would tell how they were originally meant to taste. But when our noses falter, we have machines."
Back in 2010, divers off the coast of Finland stumbled upon some astonishingly old booze: champagne and beer preserved underwater in a 170-year-old shipwreck. Naturally, they had a taste. But now scientists are back with a rigorous chemical analysis of the beers.

Such things get painted as "doing wrong for the right reasons" so are dismissed or otherwise unknown. Major omissions remain in the minds of some, and are retold. Malignant rumours and omitted truths, both entangle and cluster.

I am reading the book "nothing to envy" currently which details the aftermath of ww2 in Korea. It's a frying pan and fire transition. Only it's taking ages for the aggression and stubbornness to burn out.

Post ww2 impositions have left brambles around the world. Clustering across borders, and entangling nations in an intricate web of much irony.

The mechanisation of warfare led to trenches of short stale mate. Then later to building dividing walls of long term stale mate. Stale mate leads eventually to negotiations. If not stale mate its dominance of rule or some level of devastation, before eventual rule. Ruling nations take stance of enforce now resolve later. Only the temptation to escape culpability is too appealing.

Such a great idea. It reminds me of those "Cat Cafes" they have in Japan (and there's actually one opening up in San Diego: http://www.catcafesd.com/).
Any cat owner will tell you that having a cat reduces their stress level - it's just a no brainer! What happens when you put unsuspecting stressed out people in a glass box and let an adorable gang of kittens loose? Pure magic, that's what! I wish one of these existed in every city!

If your current career choice isn't working out too well for you, you can always try writing a novel.
What do Mervyn Peake, Jeffrey Archer and Dan Brown have in common? Aside from being authors, obviously.

The 100 along with The Walking Dead are the only two shows I watch "live" any more (with a 15 minute delay so I can fast-forward through commercials).

Hang in there till the middle of the FIFTH episode (the fourth episode is still a little lame). THEN you won't be able to stop watching.

"Just hang in until you get to the fourth episode. You won’t look back. This series has made my heart literally race more times than I can remember. Yes, a fair portion of the cast is young and attractive. Yes, you’ll see some angst and some romance subplots. But! The story splits its focus between the kids on the ground and the adults on the Ark. And everyone is rather focused on staying alive so the teen angst isn’t overwhelming."
Shows on The CW get snubbed sight unseen too often. People have been more accepting in the past few years with the addition of series like Arrow and The Flash, but I’m surprised at the brush-off…

That's why I'm telling you to skip to the 5th episode if you can't make it through the cheese of the first 4 episodes.

You have to look back in order to know where you're going.

"There were five main reasons for these mass uprisings: 1) an increasing gap between the wealthy and poor, 2) declining incomes of the poor, 3) rising inflation and taxation, 4) the external crises of famine, plague and war, and 5) religious backlashes."

She wanted him only for his body? So she was objectifying him?
CORCORAN, Calif. -- The news of infamous criminal Charles Manson's recent engagement to a woman in her 20s turned some heads late last year -- but a new twist in the story is even more unbelievable...

What a great idea! And it'd probably be a great place for parents to hang out for with a cup of coffee while their kids play with the kitties.

If you're going to the La Brea Tar Pits, then etymologically speaking, you're going to the The Tar Tar Pits.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tautological_place_names
A place name is tautological if two differently sounding parts of it are synonymous. This often occurs when a name from one language is imported into another and a standard descriptor is added on from the second language. Thus, for example, New Zealand's Mount Maunganui is tautological since ...

Did you know that George Washington's adopted son (Martha's grandson) was the father-in-law of Robert E. Lee?

Tagline
Shiny things distract me from my ultimate goal of world domination!
Introduction
"For thirty years people have been asking me how I reconcile X with Y! The truthful answer is that I don't. Everything about me is a contradiction and so is everything about everybody else. We are made out of oppositions; we live between two poles. There is a philistine and an aesthete in all of us, and a murderer and a saint. You don't reconcile the poles. You just recognize them." - Orson Welles
