And they use cyanide to dissolve the gold out of the granite so what could go wrong there? 

The mine they're trying to open near here (mostly dead in the water but they mention it from time to time) is projected to yield .187 oz per ton.
 
They have come up with some greener extraction processes recently. The operating gold mine near me uses bacteria to munch the rock and release the gold.

Meanwhile big Mama knows this.
She will actually 'bob' her abdomen up and down to entice the male to come closer.  Toward doom or lucky escape.

Probably already posted here somewhere but the reason a 'shot' of liquor is called a shot:
Because quite often cowboys would blow all their pay in town and the only thing left they could barter whiskey for were bullets.
One bullet cost about the same as a small glass of whiskey.
Thus, the words "Gimme a 'shot.'"

How is it that leaving your interior lights on can entirely drain a honkin' big car battery? Inquiring minds want to know. 
 

Seems minimal to most, but yes, the damn things DO drain a battery. However, using turn signals while driving does not.

Uninterruptedly since the 6th century, the Japanese throne has been occupied by a member of the same family. The present emperor, Naruhito, is the 126th in succesion.
