"Said Pernod Ricard USA's Kletecka: "Beefeater is the world's largest
selling premium gin and appeals to a stylish audience. The new packaging is
a bold move that positions Beefeater as a contemporary and sophisticated
brand. The new design has researched exceptionally well with the trade and
consumers who appreciate the stronger quality and heritage cues. The new
advertising has a distinctive and impactful creative look which we believe
will stand out against both our competitors and the spirit category in
A form of autism believe it or not. Named after Hans Asperger.more...
Aspergers Syndrome can be mild or extreme. Its a gift and a curse at the same time.
Its known mostly for being a social issue. People with it can walk and talk like normal people but the ability to handle talking with people, dealing with people, understand social "cues" and even so much as going up and asking for a new cheeseburger in a restaurant if it is made wrong without feeling like a complete idiot and fearing what the people working there are thinking of them can and will be VERY hard. In other cases, so much as walking down the street is a problem for these people.
People with aspergers syndrome often have very small interests for example computers or radio or a certain TV show or music. Because of their lack of the ability to deal with people, people with this issue often stick to themselfs. Often in their rooms. They learn about their favorite subjects to the point of having encyclopedic knowldege of the subject. This is partially where the term "little professer" came from.
Aspergers Syndrome comes with a few additional problems. People with it often have strong OCD and deal with panic attacks.
Poeple with it have problems being touched. So much as being hugged or touched by their parents, family or anybody even close to them can be a very bad expirence for them.
grooming, wearing of socks, can be a problem.
bad posture is also a common problem with people with aspergers syndrome.
|45.||Hypothetical High Five|
A form of high five that requires no physical contact. The two (or more) participants simply look at each other and say "Nice!" after one of them initiates the high five. The way this high five is started is that someone yells out "Hypothetical high five!" after which the participants count three Mississippis before saying "Nice." Friends who see each other often and use this form of high five frequently often develop facial cues instead of counting Mississippis before saying "Nice!" People who have trouble making eye contact with others have a hard time performing this high five and it is often impossible for them to perfect the timing.
"Hypothetical High Five!"
Windows FP (aka: Windows Fisher Price), is the successor to Windows 2000.
Also known as 'Windows XP'. This was the last stand of a dying corporation to save itself, from itself. The interface was designed by the team who delivered the Apple Macintosh almost twenty years earlier, but is neither as stable, nor as easy to use.
Windows FP was seen by many as an attempt to make the Windows OS more Mac-like. However, with a GUI incapable of smooth transitions, the results appear more like melted-candy corn than the inimitable Mac OS X that it tries so hard to be.
Visual cues apparently have been taken from the local kindergarden. Everything is either big, lurid, or unnecessary (sometimes all three). Plagued with problems throughout, it's party-piece was it's ability to crash all by itself.
Me: "Dude, is that your lil' bro's toy you rollin'?"
You: "No dude, it's my new Windows FP"

Deez is a possessive descriptor or possessive pronoun. It is often used to describe certain aspect of male anatomy. Usage often implies a masculine and prideful connotation. Enunciation often further draws on the word to emphasize importance. When visual cues are available, look for the motion of a male grabbing the groin area a reference to what is mine. In some instances is used in conjunction with the word nuts to form an inflammatory response to a rhetorical question or simply as a greeting. The implication is that if the recipient does not approve of the actions or behavior of the speaker, they are invited to consume the product of said male anatomy through an explicit act. Look carefully for visual or audio cues and I believe you will find the meaning easy to decipher. If truly perplexed, ask the speaker in a polite and refined manner what they mean by their statement. Example: "pardon, sir (madam) could you be so kind as to further elaborate on your previous statement. I am having difficulty interpreting the precise meaning." Undoubtedly, the response is often equally polite and, if your lucky, profoundly colorful.
"you wish you had one of deez."
A period of time when fraternities and sororities promote their organizations and solicit potential new members to apply for membership.more...
There are several types of sorority Rush, a.k.a. Recruitment. Twenty six sororities are members of the National Panhellenic Council, and follow policies set forth by the NPC and their respective school and chapters.
Formal recruitment, which is characterized by a series of planned, timed parties leading up to finding out which (if any) sorority has invited you to join.
In the first round, you spend a short amount of time with each group, and learn more about each group. A Rho Gamma (Recruitment Guide) is a member of a non-disclosed sorority, and is your guide through the process. She leads small groups through each step of the process and is your go-to for all questions.
The second round is usually a house tour (if houses exist on your campus) of each group.
The third event is Pref night, where you select which group(s) you wish to join, and may be exposed to some organized presentation by each sorority.
The final event is BID DAY, where potential new members find out which sorority (if any) that you have preffed has selected you to join. If there is a match (a.k.a. mutual selection), a bid is extended, which you must sign. You are then taken to the house or chapter room. If you do not get a bid, you have not been selected to join a sorority at that time.
COB is short for Continuous Open Bidding. This occurs if a ...
