You haven’t met the tulip poplar in my front yard.
I guess, in 2020, things born, or made, in 1960, will turn 60!
(That is, of course, if there even is a 2020).
This may intrigue some and horrify others, but the AR-15 has turned fifty, which means that under US law, individual rifles which have hit the big Five Oh will become legally "Curios and Relics," which relaxes the laws on their sale and shipment. Provided it was properly maintained, a fifty-year-old AR is just as capable as one that rolled off the line last week, for whatever purpose you see fit.
Number 38 on the list of the 100 most downloaded books on the Project Gutenberg site is Calculus Made Easy by Silvanus P. Thompson. I don't know, either.
It's probably 300 blank pages. You can't make calculus easy.
it moved up to number 25 lol
Should've been a statistician then he would have seen it coming.
Apple cider vinegar can help get rid of warts and moles. Dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and leave it on for at least an hour, then repeat daily. It seems to vary from person to person for how long to leave it on and it probably doesn't work in every case, but if you find the right amount of time each day and stay consistent, it can be surprisingly effective.
Edit: for transparency, this is only a home remedy. There aren't studies that validate this, so if you do consider trying it, do your research first and make sure you're aware of possible consequences and how to do it properly. I'll leave this here:
Are you a member of the all-powerful apple cider vinegar lobby? Because it's starting to smell that way.
Hah, nope! Just someone who can attest to its mysterious powers.
From what I know all evidence of apple cider vinegar medical benefits is either inconclusive studies or personal testimony annecdotes. Possible, but not really facts. The same seems to follow with this claim:
Consider with caution.
After viewing this I’m slightly convinced the host of the video occasionally dons a Chewbacca costume. No judgment, just sayin’...
For a long while the spelling of English was non-standardised, with some of the rules we have now applied more as trends than requirements. In Early Modern English, where most of my knowledge is in, this leads to some recognisable, readable stuff that's better than Chaucer, but still has some strange spelling habits. There's a good number of extraneous "e"s, which is essentially the original of the "ye olde' stereotype, and the extra consonant thing sometimes done with versions of that joke including "shoppe" is also accurate. But one thing that I notice isn't often discussed or depicted that struck me is use of "f" instead of "s" when the "s" in not the first letter of the word, particularly when it's in the middle like in "case". This leads to a whole lot of primary documents talking about "foul cafes of treafon" which sounds like a bad Parisian dessert.
There are currently 111 new cruise ships under construction.
Following on from this, I had heard that ye is actually pronounced as the.
The 'y' is supposed to represent Thorne, a character I can't use because I'm on my mobile, but I still totally think should make a comeback.
'f' is the double s, innit?
The white rind found on cheeses such as brie and Camembert is a fungus of the penicillium family.
My theory is that is a lisp of sorts, and will stand by that theory until
From what I can tell if it just a spelling artefact but given that Early Modern English accent was slightly different to modern standard British it may have been a bit of a lisp. It's not improbable.
Mankind's an animal.
An animal like you and me.
An interesting observation.
But what is Steve?
