Self -Serve Wine Tanks!
This is just cool, besides isn't drinking one glass of wine a day healthy? Yes! ----- "Bring your own resealable bottles, Poland Spring containers, jerrycans, whatever. Or you can get one at the store. Select your grade (red, white, or rosé). Pump. Print receipt. Astrid Terzian introduced this concept that hearkens back to a bygone era when wine would arrive in Paris shops in tonneaux and consumers would bring their own flagons to fill. But today, Terzian says, she started this scheme in fall 2008 to fill a niche, tapping into two key themes, environmental awareness and the economy...The elimination of packaging mass means that the wine can be shipped much more efficiently from a cost and carbon perspective."

Lindsay Lohan "Wanted to Be Like Britney Spears"
Britney is pissed. Come on! She is finally out of the spotlight, is seemingly getting herself together and now she is thrown to the wolves yet again. You see apparently Lohan was seeing Britney in all the papers, and saw the headlines and felt like you know...she had to uh..be like her. Huh? Let's go to the quote: "...it was very go-go-go and I had a lot of responsibility; and I think just the second I didn't have [structure] anymore—I was 18, 19—with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn't do certain things … And I see where that's gotten me now, and I don't like it." She says tabloids were her main source of news, and calls that "really scary and sad… I would look up to those girls… the Britneys and whatever. And I would be like, I want to be like that." What to even make of this? Surely the headlines were not "Woot Woot Britney is so cute when she is drunk!" I thought they were more like..."Britney's Psych Visit In Early Morning Hours." How could Lohan believe this was positive publicity...
ARTIFICIAL RIGHT ARM: Europe, 1850-1910
How neat is this? Science proves again how cool it really is, with this artificial arm, although we can't imagine it would be too comfy it still gave an opportunity to those who had no hope. "Made from steel and brass, this unusual prosthetic arm articulates in a number of ways. The elbow joint can be moved by releasing a spring, whereas the top joint of the wrist allows a degree of rotation and an up-and-down motion. The fingers can also curl up and straighten out. The leather upper arm piece is used to fix the prosthesis to the remaining upper arm. The rather sinister appearance of the hand suggests the wearer may have disguised it with a glove. Among the most common causes of amputation throughout the 1800s were injuries received as a result of warfare." -Science Museum.org/UK
