The wallpaper is cute, but actual gum popping is generally considered rude. How to Chew Gum Politely.
The ancient Greeks chewed mastiche – a chewing gum made from the resin of the mastic tree.
In 1848, John B. Curtis made and sold the first commercial chewing gum called the State of Maine Pure Spruce Gum.
Saturday school may also be assigned for simple infractions which are continuously repeated offenses such as chewing gum, tardiness, and hall violations.
Using the law of hydrostatics, the driving force must be at least equal (as can be seen in a certain part of the video) to the weight of the man with the balloon..
Video does not always tell the whole story.
This is not a misguided feminist rant against men, How man ‘lost his penile spines’
Scientists believe men once had small spines on their genitalia such as those found in chimpanzees, cats and mice.
Analysis of the genomes of humans, chimpanzees and macaques indicates that a DNA sequence thought to play a role in the production of these spines have been deleted in humans, but has been preserved in other primates.
It suggests another genetic deletion may have led to the expansion of specific regions of the human brain.
The penile spine may have evolved to remove “mating plugs”. These plugs are deposited by some the male of some species to displace material other males have placed in the female genital tract. A strategy evolved to prevent other males from fertilizing the female they had already mated with. The spines have their positive and negative attributes. Evolution is not a race towards perfection but rather, in this case, a race for the best reproductive strategies. Why don’t human males have penal spines anymore. Their assignment to the evolutionary dust bin may have coincided with our cultural evolution. Which brings us to the scientific debate about culture and psychology’s effects on physical adaptations. Y’all can discuss that among yourselves, because I’m not going to dive into that can of coelomates today. Not having a spine makes the male less sensitive thus lasting longer before copulation. There is not much practical reason to delay copulation in terms of procreation, but there is a cultural incentive to do so. Delay increases the time of physical intimacy and may have played a role in creating or promoting stronger emotional bonds between male and female humans.
Stopping collective bargaining in and of itself would not save Wisconsin or any other state money – unless elected officials are afflicted with some disease which renders them incapable of saying no. On the other hand gaming parliamentary rules will lead to court challenges which will cost the state money. Wisconsin GOP Anti-Union Vote Violates State’s Open Meetings Law
Last night, Wisconsin GOP lawmakers called a surprise conference committee meeting and then rammed an anti-union bill through the state senate. Yet, by forcing the bill through without legally required public notice, the senators may have ensured that the bill will be declared void.
If the courts do not declare the legislation void, it is my understanding pro labor legislators and unions will challenge the law in court. Like all Republicans Gov. Walker is obviously a genius when it comes to priorities. Maybe he can get his buddies, the Koch brothers to pay the state’s legal bills.
