God's gift to man. The perfect mix between untility and cost. The average sized role of duct tape costs less than $2 and is availiable to be purchased almost anywhere. Duct tape is not as sticky as Gorrila Tape, but it is much less expensive and more easily obtained. Every man must have a roll of duct tape somewhere. It is the perfect addition to the car, utility closet and tool box of anyone.
Duct tape was origionally created during World War 2 for the US military to water-proof ammunition crates in the wet climates of the Pacific and Northern Europe. The water-proof qualities earned it the name Duck Tape as it repelled water like a duck's feathers. GIs then began using this tape for fixing things in the field. After the war, this useful product was unsuccesfully used to seal duct work (hence the generic name) later to be replaced by foil tape. The two main producers of quality duct tape are Duck Tape and 3M. It is ussually found in the full-sized, gray roll. However, it can be found in many colors and sizes with many backings (plastic, rubber, fibered etc).
Something is officialy broken when it cannot be fixed with duct tape.
The systematic restriction of the rights of Americans granted by the 2nd Amendment in the name of reducing crime. Gun Control is traditionally practiced by liberals but the rising popularity of neo-conservatism is also putting gun control on the agenda for most "conservatives." Gun Control ranges from the simplest of gun registration to an outright ban on a specific type of gun or guns in general. Gun Control is often implimented shortly before a totalitarian leader begins opressing a groups of people (German Holocaust, Stalin's Russia, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Darfur etc).
The fact is that Gun Control does not work. Any time new gun control laws are passed, crime rates go up. Whenever gun control laws are repealed, crime rates go down or stay the same. The simple truth is that if guns are outlawed, then only outlaws will have guns. By definition, criminals (the group that gun control laws seem to attempt to disarm (in addition to the general public)), don't follow the law, thus making the gun control laws ineffective on them.
Never in the history of the United States (and most other countries for that matter) has a gun control policy decreased gun crime, gun injuries and/or gun deaths.
the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center)was formed in 1985. Its four members consisted of the Tipper Gore, Susan Baker, Pam Howar, and Sally Nevius. All four women were wives of promonent husbands that worked in federal government. The women waged a jihad against popular music, especially rock music. They blamed rock music for rape, violence, drug abuse and teenage suicide. They held a Senate hearing in August 1985 to discuss and attempt to impliment censorship in music. The PMRC had many proffesors and phycatrists testify on their part. Opposing them was Dee Sinder (Twisted Sister) Frank Zappa and John Denver. Technically the PMRC suceeded by forcing production companies to put the ever common Parental Warning sticker on the cover of explicit albums.
THe PMRC claimed to be acting on behalf of the American People. In reality, the PMRC was just a bunch of Washington socialites that wanted something public to do. What they were attempting to do was against the 1st amendment and a charachteristic of a Socialist/Communist/Nazi government
An economy car that has been "pimped out". These cars are usually Japanese like Honda. However, some can be from other countries (Ford Focus, Pugeot, Volkswagens). Some of these cars are not tottally lame, those earn the distinction of being import tuners. Unlike tuners, ricers focus on looks oposed to prefromance. Many of them have oversized, useless spoilers and muffler tips. Garish color schemes and decals often adorn these cars. Many times, ricers will have manufacturer decals and badges that son't represent the real eqquiptment.
Dude, that lame ass Honda ricer sucks. He's got a NOS badge on it, but I bet the second he uses NOS, if he even has it, that wimpy little 4 cylinder will melt.
This term is used to describe a show car that travels around in a trailer. There are two general types of trailer queens.
1) A car that, for some reason, can't or shouldn't be driven but is still show worthy. For example, some cars are too old to be safe to drive cross-country so they must be trailered.
2) The most common trailer queen can be driven. The owner is ussually so tied up in the status and appearance of his car that he has forgotten the joy of driving it and now hauls it around in a trailer to avoid dirt. These are often painfully shiny with very expensive, detailed painjobs and excess chrome. The owner will wash and polish every part of the car (even the brake pads) before the car goes in the trailer and then again after he parks it at the show. Extreme trailer queens are often hauled around in trailers that are show-worthy themselves.
We had fun driving our cars to the show but that trailer queen is so tied up in making his car extra shiny that he's gonna be polishing the thing until tommarow.
A term used maliciously by stuck-up, arrogant, ingnorant jerks from the South and West Sides of Springfield, Illinois to describe their stereotyped veiw of residents of the Northend. Generally, the term is not true. The term stems from the fact that the people on the South and West Sides are GENERALY stuck-up, conceded rich bastards and trust-fund babies (or about as close as they can get in Springfield)and they wish to be-little those that don't have as much money as they do. The reasoning (in my opinion) for this name-calling is because the so-called NEWTS don't seem to care that the Southenders and West Siders are more affluent and well-off financially.
The term NEWT is usually meant to be offensive but many North Enders ussually laugh off or ignore the term, some acctully embrace the term.
There is also a term for West Enders: WEB, or West End Bitch/Bastard
