It's legitimate to remind people of the enemy we are up against. Too many people think these terrorists are just disgruntled oppressed people that are otherwise good and decent. That is the furthest thing from the truth. This segment is Islam needs to be eradicated. The rest of Islam lives in fear of these terrorists groups.

I live in Minnesota, the land of Winter Snow and Ice. We have 8 months (9 really) of wonderful glorious winter!

In Saint Paul, MN we celebrate winter with a Winter Carnival, Torch light parades, ice sculptures and occasionally an Ice Castle!

Don't get me wrong, Minnesnowta does have summer too! Last year it fell on a weekend and everyone was happy about that.

All I'm saying is if Fat Bottom Girl's make the world go around then Minnesota is spinning like a top. So this story about the cold making us thinner can't be true. Just say'n.

Stay Calm and put another log on the fire!

Until an autopsy is done there is no way to know if/why a vein burst. It may or may not have anything to do with the lethal injection drugs. The rush to judgment over the drugs is simply a knee jerk reaction by those opposed to the death penalty. It's also worth asking why we have a shortage of the tested drugs. Is it not sue to the anti-death penalty groups harassing drug companies? So they created this problem because they didn't think that some other method would be tried.

The only woods worth splitting are hard woods like birch and oak etc for heating a home. Thus they are easy to split. (Hint: If you've never swung an axe, birch wood splits apart really easy when its about -20F outside.) I never split pine or other woods such as cottonwood because their value in heating was limited. Pine causes creosote build up really fast. Cottonwood burns up too fast to be as effective in heating a home.

I grew up splitting wood to heat our home. LOTS OF DAMN WOOD! The only really innovative thing I see here is the chopping block with tire to hold the log being split in place. That is something I wish I had thought of 30 years ago. This axe design is something I've seen before and it's not new. There have been offset head axe designs before for jobs like squaring a log into a timber beam etc.

The amount of water needed to produce Ethanol should then be more than enough reason to ban Ethanol. Once we stop using food (corn) as fuel we can go back to proper agriculture where crops are rotated instead of farms increasing not growing other crops so they can cash in on the corn bonanza. The problems in California have nothing to do with rainfall and everything to do with Government Regulations from the EPA. http://westernfarmpress.com/bl...

In typical fashion though the Government regulates a problem into existence, hires "Researches" to say the new problem caused by Government Regulations is actually caused by something else that the Government is not yet regulating (but would like to regulate) and thus creating a public outcry for the Government to regulate another part of our lives and cause yet more problems. All why you sheeple are thankful the kind and caring Government is saving you from an evil made up boogyman.
