Ok ....... another alcohol-based commercial

This one's really clever, though!


Liquor commercials are often a little more sophisticated than beer commercials and this one's no exception

 

Chainsaw Maniac

Cute little flash game.

 

Carlton Draught .... an Aussie legend

well ...... it's a beer, actually, but you gotta love this commercial. This music always gets the hair standing up on the back of my neck, and, in fact, elsewhere!

Makes me thirsty too

Spider Myths

Did you know that spiders are not insects? They belong to the Class Arachnida, insects to the Class Insecta. Spiders are as distant from insects as birds are from fish. And that Tarantulas are not dangerous or deadly to humans? Or the stories about you unknowingly swallowing an average of four live spiders in your sleep each year? Forget about that, it's not true.


Thank God

America's Electric Chairs

In the 2nd half of the 20th Century hanging was the accepted method of executing those found guilty of committing a capitol crime. The exception was Utah where the condemned were given the choice of the gallows or a firing squad. The convicts overwhelmingly chose the bullet over the rope.

Ann Hoag and Jonas Williams were hanged together for separate crimes on July 30, 1852 in Poughkeepsie NY. Dutchess County, NY was using a new version of gallows that involved using a dropped counterweight to yank the executee to the crossbeam, hopefully breaking the victim's neck in the process. Williams' neck snapped, but Ann Hoag's didn't and she struggled violently for several minutes before finally suffocating to death. This didn't seem right to most people at the time. The murdering, raping Negro died quickly while the housewife, who was accused of poisoning her husband but claimed to her death that she was innocent, died hard.

In 1886 a New York State Legislature Commission was established to study humane methods of capitol punishment.

Like Hotdogs?

One of America's favorite sandwiches (the other being the hamburger), which consists of a Frankfurter in an oblong-shaped bun with any of various toppings including mustard, ketchup, pickle relish, cheese, sauerkraut and beans. Regular hot dogs are about 6 inches long, while they are also available in foot-long versions. Among the many aliases for hot dogs are wiener dog, frankfurter, frank and tube steak.

In 1867, Charles Feltman, a German butcher, opened up the first Coney Island hot dog stand in Brooklyn, New York. He sold 3,684 sausages in a roll during his first year in business.

There's more ...... lots more

The English-to-American Dictionary.

Make your own Coke

The DRINK, silly!!

The Coca-Cola formula is The Coca-Cola Company's top-secret recipe for Coca-Cola. The formula is considered one of the most closely-held trade secrets in modern business. Only a few top Coca-Cola employees are reported to know or have access to the formula. Amateur sleuths have tried to reverse engineer the production process and ingredients. The secret formula is the subject of books, speculation and marketing lore. The company consistently claims that all published recipes are incorrect. Here's a few recipes for you to try.

Study Reveals Pittsburgh Unprepared For Full-Scale Zombie Attack

Typical government unpreparedness! A zombie-preparedness study, commissioned by Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy indicates that the city could easily succumb to a devastating zombie attack. Insufficient emergency-management-personnel training and poorly conceived undead-defense measures have left the city at great risk for all-out destruction at the hands of the living dead.
