    NATURE'S BEAUTY Waves transform Russian seaside from a dumping ground for alcohol bottles into a colourful ‘pebble beach’ The Ussuri Bay used to be a dumping ground for old glass bottles and waste from a porcelain factory but the waves from the Pacific Ocean have rounded and polished the debris left behind.... Dumped glass on Ussuri Bay in Russia has been shaped into colourful pebbles Tourists of all ages are amazed by the shining shore, clean water and splendid view. The beach is particular spectacular in winter when the snow highlights the vivid colours of the glass.

    I have found undeniable, irre-Putin-able proof that the Russians were Directly involved in manipulating the election. Their meddling caused Hillary Clinton to lose and Donald Trump to win bigly. Their dastardly plan was meant to hobble Hillary Clinton and weaken her campaign by making her stagger around during the campaign trying to regain her balance as she campaigned in the battleground states....

    A Collier County man called 911 on Monday night because his girlfriend wouldn't buy him vodka. He told dispatch his neighbors were fighting and yelling. When deputies showed up, there was no yelling, and there was no scene. - Using our app? CLICK HERE to watch video Deputies said it was a prank, and neighbors said it wasn't funny. Each time a deputy is sent to a non-emergency call, that's the taxpayer's dollars spent and the officers' time wasted. We got ahold of the 911 call. Operator: "Collier County 911. What is the status of your emergency?" Jack Means: "Uh...

    Hillary Clinton Takes Natural Desiccated Thyroid Posted on August 3, 2015 A letter was released by Hillary Clinton's doctor, Lisa Bardack, MD, disclosing among other things, Hillary is taking natural desiccated thyroid pills for hypothyroidism, and she has a Calcium Score of zero. She also takes vitamin B12. Dr Lisa Bardack declared Hillary "fit to serve as president." Perhaps Dr Lisa Bardack prescribes natural thyroid for Hillary Clinton because it is a better thyroid medication. And perhaps Dr Lisa Barack prescribes natural thyroid for Hillary Clinton in spite of the opposition of the Endocrine Society Position_Statement which says natural desiccated...

    My brother in law bought me this bottle of Grays Peak Small Batch vodka for Christmas. Dang nice looking bottle. I haven't opened it yet. But I'm wondering who here has a preference for vodka and if you really can tell the difference between one American Vodka and another? This one is going to end up in white russians anyway. The Dude would doubtless approve.

    The reaction from around the Twitterverse to news that a university paid $65,000 for Chelsea Clinton to make a brief appearance in 2014 can largely be summed up in one word. What?! Tuesday morning, the Washington Post reported the University of Missouri at Kansas City was looking for a celebrity speaker to headline a gala luncheon, and initially reached out to Hillary Clinton. But when Clinton’s representatives quoted a fee of $275,000, officials balked. So they turned to the Democratic presidential front-runner’s daughter. As reported by the Post, the university paid $65,000 for Chelsea Clinton’s appearance.

In fact I’ve previously written that a vodka soda is the world’s most dangerous drink because you will fall asleep and choke while drinking it’s so fucking boring.

Russians drank 12pc less vodka last year, according to data from Euromonitor International, dragging down global sales of the clear...

She said that Trudeau assaulted her while the two were arguing about their relationship. He reportedly choked her, slammed her head onto the ground and told her repeatedly she was “going to die tonight.”

Security staff seized the bottles – which were being sold at Ł10 each – after they noticed Stewart approaching tourists at the Coral Island slot machine complex. However, scientific analysis revealed that while some bottles contained flat cola, others contained urine and...
