In case you weren’t aware the FDA is once again over-stepping its boundaries and going in to regulate the premium tobacco industry. They are “proposing” to extend their reach – and of course increase the size of their department and budget to regulate more of your freedom away. If you give a crap about the ability to buy and smoke premium tobacco head over to Cigar Rights of America and look at the talking points and send in your feedback to the FDA.
Few people know the real details about the differences between cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. Most are just bombarded by anti-smoking messages on a daily basis that lump ALL smoking into the same bucket. So allow me to provide you with a bit of information about those differences. The premium tobacco that is grown for cigars and for pipes is generally alkaline based. Because of this you don’t inhale pipe smoke or cigar smoke. Cigarettes are from a varietal of tobacco plant that is more acidic based — thus you can inhale it into your lungs where you absorb 100x the amount of […]
I heard the ad on the radio and thought it was a joke. But the Dollar Shave club is no joke. For a dollar, or if you’re feeling squirrely $6 or $9 a month you can get primo razer blades shipped to your door – and the handle for free. Not only that shipping is free for the $6 and $9 a month package. If you’re doing the $1 blade then shipping is $2 extra. Dollar Shave Club is based out of California and founded by two guys Mark Levine and Michael Dubin (Mike in the video). Mike actually came […]
Last week Makers Mark announced that it would be changing its alcohol content by 3% (which really isn’t 3%) to go from 45% alcohol by volume to 42% alcohol or 90 to 84 proof. Their reasoning was that they anticipated shortages and wanted to stretch the liquor out to cover the shortages. They even went so far as to have connoisseurs come in and try to taste the difference between them. The owners said they had tested the watered-down bourbon themselves and validated their own findings with consumer research. Both agreed that “there’s no difference in the taste,” Samuels said. “While not every […]
There are a good number of books out there on this crap(drum roll), but most people just Google this stuff, and it brings them to a website that has the information. So here we are providing you the information based on my own personal experience in the diaper lab here at the institute. This is the man’s guide to changing diapers or a practical guide or real-world guide cause they never tell you the nitty- gritty in those self help books. And just for your own edification – diapers all use the same chemical to absorb wetness. Acrylic acid is a key component of super-absorbent polymers […]
Well, we’ve made it to yet another year here on the Institute’s website. This year we’ve really accomplished jack squat. Next year, I suspect will be similar with one exception – if I don’t get any writers who want to help, I may shift focus slightly to fatherhood since this year I became one. So my New Years’ resolution would be to post a bit more than last year – and that should be pretty easy right? I think we didn’t even get once per month. Next, would be to post more original content – I think this is where […]
The perception is that its getting worse. This appears to be incorrect. The reality is that our national media feeds on this and devotes oodles of time on it. The progressive agenda uses tragedies like this as a spring board to go on the anti-gun campaigns – never let a national tragedy or event go to waste is their motto.
Because of the hurricane and how it ravaged the north east – politicians are discussing if they can move election day next Tuesday by a week. The president does not have the power to move the election – elections are left up to the states. Congress can have a say but they are not in session. In 2004, Congress passed a resolution on changing presidential election dates stating: “No single individual or agency should be given the authority to postpone the date of a Presidential election.”
GM would love to be able to attract talent that would help it make new cars that people want to buy – you know.. to innovate. But because of the salary cap restrictions imposed by the government they can’t. CHICAGO (MarketWatch) — The Treasury Department is resisting General Motors’ push for the government to sell off its stake in the auto maker, The Wall Street Journal reports. Following a $50 billion bailout in 2009, the U.S. Read more here.
From here. From the this is damn cool archives: Over the weekend, a freighter closer to the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan caught a rare sight of not one but five waterspouts above the lake. The National Weather Service recorded a total of nine waterspouts cropping up with winds around 45 miles per hour. Freighter captain and storm chaser Eric Treece was able to film a dense grouping of the waterspouts. MLive.com has more from Treeceon the water formations he saw Saturday and his experience with them over the years: “Being out here, I get a really good view of thunderstorms over […]
From the blaze: The White House has released the transcript of President Obama’s recent speech in Roanoke, Virginia, and it holds a number of noteworthy statements. “Channeling Elizabeth Warren,” in the words of Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Barack Obama said that successful Americans “didn’t get there” on their own. The official transcript relates: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, […]
When it comes to cooking, adding bacon to everything automatically makes things better. It’s man law. One of the things that you absolutely need to do as a man is to know how to cook amazing dishes for your friends, your family, and if you’re dating, to impress your woman. In this recipie we’re going to talk about a staple at breakfast, biscuits and bacon gravy. Sure sausage gravy is great, and I’ve cooked it many times as well, but bacon gravy is king. So here is what you’ll need: 4-5 Strips of bacon (your choice of flavor) 1/2 […]
Race-baiters and the leftist media narrative is debunked again as we learn that Trayvon indeed was a thug. Not the sweet innocent kid on his way home that they portray him to be. See here: First, Martin’s school suspension record. According to an investigation by the Miami Herald, Martin was suspended twice – once in October of last year for graffiti, and prior to the shooting for possession of a bag with traces of marijuana and a “marijuana pipe.” Martin was also found in possession of some jewelry and what the Herald describes as a “burglary tool,” though these items were […]
