|1.||Back to the Future Day|
Celebrated each November 5th, Back to the Future Day is our opportunity to recognize Doc Brown's discovery of the Flux Capacitor, the device that makes time travel possible. Back to the Future Day is celebrated by wishing everyone a Happy Back to the Future Day, and updating your social media networks statuses accordingly.
On November 5th, 1955, Dr. Emmet Lathrop Brown (Doc Brown to his friends), was attempting to hang a clock in his bathroom. As he reached over, he lost his footing , slipped from the toilet that he was standing on, and struck his head against the side of the sink.
Unconscious, Doc had a vision. And that vision was that of a Flux Capacitor — the device that makes time travel possible.
Requiring 1.21 gigawatts of electrical power and to be moving at a speed of 88 mph (142 km/h) the Flux Capacitor allows one to move forward or backwards in time.
Dr. Emmet Brown, on this day in history, we salute you, and remember your red letter date in the history of science!
Back to the Future Day: The Origin Storymore...
Dr. Emmett Brown: Then tell me, "Future Boy", who's President in the United States in 1985?
Marty McFly: Ronald Reagan.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Ronald Reagan? The actor? Then who's VICE-President? Jerry Lewis? I suppose Jane Wyman is the First Lady!
Marty McFly: Whoa! Wait! Doc!
Dr. Emmett Brown: And Jack Benny is Secretary of the Treasury.
Marty McFly: Doc, you gotta listen to me.
Dr. Emmett Brown: I've had enough practical jokes for one evening. Good night, Future Boy!
Marty McFly: No, wait! Doc. Doc. The-the-the bruise - the bruise on your head. I know how that happened! You told me the whole story. You were standing on your toilet, and you were hanging a clock, and you fell, and you hit your head on the sink. And that's when you came up with the idea for the Flux Capacitor... Which... is what makes time travel possible....

To the end, or to a full degree.
They do their job down to the letter.
|3.||Close to the flagpole|
Term used in the military or government to describe being near a headquarters. The flagpole is often located near this building. Its not someplace most people want to be since it usually involves political infighting, following all rules to the letter and bureaucratic drudgery.
This can even mean working in a different building some distance away but the common thought is that the closer you physically are, the worse it can be.
I've been goofing off way out here but they're moving me close to the flagpole.
A square or rectangular prism shaped box commonlly situated at the front of peoples houses mounted on a post or in a precut hole in the fence. A letter box can usaully consist of two different holes; a rectangular hole cut into the letterbox, which is where the postman or postwoman places paper messages encased in a an adressed envolope. The other hole is a round cylinder, where pointless paper, also known as junkmail, is inserted by the paper boy. On the letter box,it is very common to have the number that represents the house that the letter box is used for. Some letter boxes can be locked by a small padlock to prevent people from stealing your mail (this is highly recommeded if you live in a shitty/dodgy neibourhood). Most people like to decorate their letterboxes but is usually a very bad idea.
"hey ma! Im going out to get the mail from the letter box. ok?
The phrase "The U" is refered to when one talks about The University of Miami. Although Miami doesnt have the letter U in it, that is not what the phrase intends. Miami is refered to as "The U" because it is the best University. Hence the name "The U" or very rarely, "The University".
Mike- "Dude, you got accepted to The U!"
Chris- "Yeah, i already bought tickets to the football games too."
An all right country, as far as I'm concerned. I'm Australian and no matter what I'll always love Australia 1000 times more than NZ, because we're a sunburnt country, Tourists may say NZ has far prettier scenery but you have to be Auzzie to understand the beauty of an orange desert meeting a clear deep blue sky. Also most tourists are from green countries, so seeing a beautiful untouched NZ forrest would seem far more appealing than a culture shock from grey green dry bush of Australia (which may I add is 1000 times better than an NZ forrest- lol). But thats my opinion.more...
I think it's cool that you guys have developed a culture of your own- like the haka (I still giggle when I see it though-lol). But don't say Australians haven't, our culure is fun loving and bbqs, some may say that anywhere in the world has that, but Australias will always be better.
I know NZ celebrities get labled as Auzzie, but to tell you the truth I think it's because the media is too stupid to know the difference so they chose the better known country.
Also, do not say Australia is rasist, I am half Phillipino and have never had a hurtful comment. Other than the occasional 'Phillipino driver' joke, but I like the way we joke about ourselves and if anyone finds that offensive- well losen up.
I don't mind NZ but Australia has the better accent!!! LOL.
|7.||Blood Orgy of the Leather Girls|
A very little-known Z-budget feminist horror movie. Was given a limited VHS release following the director's suicide and was never released on DVD. Its trademarks include its extremely likeable cast, its brilliant and high-energy soundtrack, and its over-the-top camp elements. Extremely enjoyable if you are lucky enough to somehow find a copy.
Customer A: What do you mean you don't carry Blood Orgy of the Leather Girls?
Clerk: We carry Blood Orgy of the She-Devils....
Customer A: NOT THE SAME MOVIE!
Customer B: I bought a copy on eBay for $22....
