At 50, Ring-Tab Beer Cans Are Now Officially Historic Artifacts
“Once an artifact attains the 50-year threshold, it is eligible to be recorded as an archaeological site or an isolated find in most states,” ... “This means that even beverage-can pull tabs are eligible for protection under state and federal laws.”

One can still find those rings out here in the desert. Sometimes complete cans
I can just imagine a big construction project, like the tesla "gigafactory", what ever that is, being put on hold because some pull tab rings were found

Origin of the expression "Eat humble pie".

In medieval times umble pie was made from the entrails of deer and feed to the peasants after the hunt. 8)

Great news for girl watchers: Ogling over women's breasts is good for a man's health and can add years to his life, medical experts have discovered. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out" declared gerontologist Dr. Karen Weatherby.

Dr. Weatherby and fellow researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany, reached the startling conclusion after comparing the health of 200 male outpatients - half of whom were instructed to look at busty females daily, the other half told to refrain from doing so. The study revealed that after five years, the chest-watchers had lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and fewer instances of coronary artery disease.

"Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation," explains Dr. Weatherby. "There's no question: Gazing at breasts makes men healthier." "Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of stroke and heart attack in half. We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life four to five years!!!!!!!! :wink:

A chance for all you creative/destructive demented fuckers to make a mark in the world:
http://www.slashgear.com/darpa-improv-p ... -16432114/

DARPA’s back with yet another project, and this one aims to turn everyday, benign appliances and other electronics into weapons and other “unanticipated security threats.” No, the agency isn’t hoping to equip soldiers with modified home appliances — rather, it wants the hive mind to come up with novel and unexplored methods for turning easily accessible devices into things that could threatened national security, helping to bolster preventative technologies.

The idea is that in the modern world, an ordinary person has access to a massive amount of technology, a lot of it unassuming — everything from the toaster on your counter to the door opener in your garage. Most of these things don’t pose a risk, at least not in their natural state. That could change with the right modifications, though, and the growing number of possibilities mean more effort is needed to protect against such actions.

Said Improv’s manager John Main:

DARPA often looks at the world from the point of view of our potential adversaries to predict what they might do with available technology. Historically we did this by pulling together a small group of technical experts, but the easy availability in today’s world of an enormous range of powerful technologies means that any group of experts only covers a small slice of the available possibilities. In Improv we are reaching out to the full range of technical experts to involve them in a critical national security issue.

The morning news has said three times that "Coachella will be more like Burning Man this year." :lol:

SAN DIEGO — Very strong and gusty winds are expected to develop in San Diego County’s mountains and deserts Thursday morning, weaken somewhat Friday and increase over the weekend as a trough of low pressure moves across the region.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will also be impacted by gusty winds and blowing dust and sand. The popular concert’s temporary structures could be affected with 60-70mph wind gusts.

Winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts that may reach 60 mph in some locales in the forecast prompted a National Weather Service high wind warning from 5 a.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday. A less severe wind advisory will take effect immediately afterward as the winds begin to die down, and will expire at 11 a.m. Saturday.

“Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage,” according to the weather service.

Forecasters said the winds would ramp up Thursday morning and peak in the afternoon.

The wind may be strong enough to kick up sand and dust alongside desert roadways, which could make for hazardous driving conditions on portions of Interstate 8 and state Route 78. Motorists, especially those in high profile vehicles, were urged to use extra caution.

The winds could potentially damage unsecured outdoor objects, according to the NWS.
