An English Naturalist who was the author of “Origin of Species” as well as several other books. Charles Darwin revolutionized biology with the scientific theory
of evolution. Evolution
is Descent with modification. Change in the genetic composition of a population during successive generations, as a result of natural selection acting on the genetic variation among individuals, and resulting in the development of new species. This is a scientific fact and the theory of evolution has never been disproved much as some would like to see that happen.
For some reason this inspires great hostility among people who have obviously never read or done research on evolution. (As evidenced by the questions about why are there still apes. Answer: Evolution isn’t a ladder, it more like a tree that has many branches. Humans didn’t evolve from modern day apes such as chimpanzees… humans and chimps have a common ancestor. The descendents of that common ancestor split off into different species over millions of years. )
Charles Darwin had ten children, three of whom died early. Many of his surviving children and their grandchildren would later achieve notability themselves.
One of the greatest general's in all of history. Known for his honorable character, devotion to duty, not to mention his brilliant tactical successes in battle after battle against a stronger foe. He repeatedly won distinction for conduct and bravery during the Mexican-American War.
At the begining of the War Between the States, he was offered commands in both the Union and Confederacy, but choose to be loyal to the South as he was born in Virginia.
"They do not know what they say. If it came to a conflict of arms, the war will last at least four years. Northern politicians will not appreciate the determination and pluck of the South, and Southern politicians do not appreciate the numbers, resources, and patient perseverance of the North. Both sides forget that we are all Americans. I foresee that our country will pass through a terrible ordeal, a necessary expiation, perhaps, for our national sins"- Robert E Lee
*I believe the other poster must be thinking of General Grant who was well known for his drinking.
Anyone who gets sexual satisfaction from doing something unusual. Definitions of "perverted" behavior vary depending on who's using the word. To a ninety-six-old-old grandma, tongue kissing may be see as perverted. To a twenty-one-year-old guy, smearing chocolate sauce all over his girlfriend's body and licking it off while she's tied up isn't.
One person's pervert may be another's kinky.

A real badass hillbilly. The typical Hellbilly drinks hard liquor, smokes weed, is fond of cussing and doing things many folks would call blasphemy, gets into fights often due to a don't fuck with me attitude, packs a gun, has tattoos, has a general disregard for authority, loves driving pick up trucks down muddy roads, and is hell-bent on living life to the fullest and doesn't care what people think. Often listens to or plays Country
and Death Metal
. See Hank III
for an example.
Yours truly is a Hellbilly.
Nectar of the Gods! The Norse God Odin's favorite drink. Mead predates both wine, beer, liqueur and all distilled beverages; it is in a class of it’s own. It's made from fermented honey, water and yeast. It can be light or rich, sweet or dry, or even sparkling. It may be flavored with herbs, spices and flowers.
It is not a wine as it does not contain grapes, and white wines flavored with honey are just cheap imitations of the real thing and often have much lower alcohol content then real mead. Genuine mead is smooth and highly intoxicating.
I was very dissapointed that the bar was serving honey-flavored white wine as mead.
