    Back in the day (late 60's) if you bought a MOPAR 440 6 pack there was no warranty. Not so with other engines, such as the 426 HEMI (which might have been a better engind) or 383.

    The powers that be thought 440 6 pack owners would be drag racing and putting undue wear and tear on the cars.

    hemp seed is loaded with unsaturated fats (lots of omegas, too) and protein.
    coconut oil (yummy stuff !) is all saturated fat .
    If you put enough apples, blueberries, and stevia powder in it,
    you can make a greens smoothie taste pretty dang good.
    chicken make lousy house pet.

    Calvin Coolidge was the only living president to appear on US currency.

    He appeared on a commemorative coin celebrating our sesquicentenial in 1926.

    From the Latin phrase "Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus" meaning "Now is the time to drink, now the time to dance footloose upon the earth".

    The phrase is "cutting off your nose TO SPITE your face" and its meaning is obvious.

    Candy Corn

    1. It was invented back in the 1800s.
    The tri-colored
    candy is said to have been created by a man named George Renninger who worked at the Wunderlee Candy Company in Philadelphia, PA.

    2. The original name was unappetizing.
    Goelitz Confectionary Co. began manufacturing and distributing the candy in 1898 with the name "Chicken Feed," thanks to it's resemblance to corn kernels. That company later changed its name to
    Jelly Belly in 2001, and it continues to sell the treat today!

    3. The process will amaze you.
    The recipe for candy corn has remained virtually the same since the beginning-the main ingredients are sugar, corn syrup and marshmallow which, back in the 1800s, were stirred in giant black kettles, then poured by hand (one color at a time) into special molds. Today the process is much easier thanks to machines-the Jelly Belly factory can spit out as many as 1,200 kernels per second.

    3. One serving has a crazy amount of sugar.
    Just 19 pieces adds up to a whopping 28 grams of sugar-that's nearly up there with the sugar content of an entire can of Coca-Cola! Keep the candy bowl out of reach of kids, or your little monsters might start bouncing off the walls.

    4. Apparently there's a right and wrong way to eat it.
    Do you carefully nibble on your candy corn, or munch on it without much thought at all? Back in 2013, the
    National Confectioners Association took a survey to find out how it's eaten most frequently-turns out most eat the whole piece at once, but 42.7% claim to start with the narrow white end first. The three colors taste exactly the same, yet somehow starting at the yellow end just seems wrong.

    Flintlocks are an early example of precision engineering. It was important to make them interchangeable.

    That's what I thought also. Apparently what I read meant soda.

    Probably since your fretting hand is more flexible.

    When I was in high school senior year AP A&P we measured our lung capacity. Mine was 3800 cc's, or 3.8 liters.

    The only explanation I could come up with involved a 3' Graffix.

    John Wilkes Booth originally planned to kidnap Lincoln, and then exchange him for a large number of captured Confederate soldiers.

    It seems Booth decided to murder the president when he attended Lincoln's speech about Reconstruction. Upon hearing Lincoln declare it was time to give voting rights to African-Americans, Booth became enraged, and declared he would kill Lincoln. He shot Lincoln three days later.

    The conspiracy was broader than we usually hear about. At roughly the same time as the Lincoln assassination, co-conspirator David Herold stood watch while Lewis Powell brutally attacked Secretary of State William Seward with a Bowie knife. Somehow, Seward survived. Concurrently, George Atzerodt was supposed to shoot Vice President Johnson in his room at the Kirkwood House, only two blocks from Ford's Theatre. Although Atzerodt was in in the building at the appointed time, he lost his nerve, and Johnson went unharmed.

    Herold, Powell, Atzerodt were three of the four conspirators hanged for their part in the plot.

    The Secret Service started as a branch of the Treasury Department tasked with stopping counterfeiting. It not become a presidential security detail until after the assassination of President William McKinley, the third presidential assassination in 36 years.
