What is random about coal?

Coal the energy

Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock normally occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams. The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, with smaller quantities of sulfur, oxygen and nitrogen.

Coal the singer

Often it is said that the only constant in life is change. Four-time Grammy nominated, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter KEYSHIA COLE knows well about enduring the seasons of change, particularly matters of the heart. With the release of her fourth album CALLING ALL HEARTS (Geffen Records), in the true spirit of full disclosure, Keyshia pours her heart and soul on all 14 tracks of her latest masterpiece. Enlisting powerful collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Faith Evans, Tank and her mother Dr. Yvonne Cole, and partnering with production giants Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Timbaland, Keyshia made this project a labor of love and an true expression of life…Keyshia’s life.

According to KEYSHIA, “I wasn’t that optimistic about finding true love.” In the early stages of developing CALLING ALL HEARTS, Keyshia had all but given up on the prospect. “I decided when I did get back into the swing of things I’m not dealing with anyone who’s not on my level.” Enter Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The undeniable connection between the two not only transformed Keyshia’s heart, but also soon after the birth of their son, Daniel Jr., she was able to pour out her heart in signature fashion to complete this, her 4th album.

Coal the Headwear


Coal was founded on the belief that headwear is more than an accessory. It's part of you, your identity, and your lifestyle. We build this idea into each of our designs by using quality materials and exacting detail, and crafting styles that are as unique as you are.
We are dedicated to making headwear more than an accessory.


In 2002 Coal started as a labor of love in an apartment in Portland, Oregon. In our first year, we launched with a vision for a quality headwear line inspired by friends and family—one that would be an outlet for our whole new take on the woolen, knit beanie. Drawing from deep roots in art, skate and snowboard culture, Coal delivered great fit and forward thinking design. Although we now call Seattle, Washington home we've stayed true to our original inspiration and today, offer a wide range of distinctive pieces from caps and hats to gloves and knits that match your unique life and style. We offer a headwear culture you can't find anywhere else.

What is random about hummer?

The HUMMER brand:
kpop hottie infront of a hummer, got me thinking about getting a hummer. [rimshot]x2
Hummer was a brand of trucks and SUVs, first marketed in 1992 when AM General began selling a civilian version of the M998 Humvee. In 1998,General Motors (GM) purchased the brand name and marketed three vehicles: the original Hummer H1, based on the Humvee; and the H2 and H3models that were based on smaller, civilian-market GM platforms.
By 2008, Hummer's viability in the economic downturn was being questioned, and it was placed under review by GM management. Rather than being transferred to Motors Liquidation Company as part of the GM bankruptcy in 2009, the brand was retained by GM, in order to investigate its sale.
In 2009, a Chinese manufacturer, Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Company, announced that it would acquire Hummer, pending government approvals, but later withdrew its bid.[1] On February 24, 2010, Reuters reported that the Chinese ministry of commerce had prevented the deal,[2] although a ministry spokesperson denied rejecting the application, which had been stalled for eight months.[3] At the end of February, General Motors announced it would begin dismantling the Hummer brand.[4]
Although the automaker announced two days later that it had been approached with new offers,[5] by April 2010, any sale became unlikely, as inventory was depleted and Hummer dealerships began shutting down.[6] After filling a rental-car fleet order, the last Hummer H3 rolled off line at Shreveport on May 24, 2010.

The Hummer Bird

How long do hummingbirds live?

There's not a lot of data to work with, but most experts think the average lifespan of a hummer is 3 or 4 years. The record was a female Broad-tailed, banded as an adult in Colorado in 1976, then recaptured in the same location in 1987, which would have made her at least 12 years old.

What animals prey on hummingbirds?

Although various larger birds, snakes, and mammals raid hummingbird nests for eggs and chicks, predation is not a major cause of mortality in adult hummingbirds. Animals known to have caught and eaten hummingbirds include cats, small hawks and owls, shrikes, roadrunners, orioles, tanagers, large flycatchers, grackles, herons, gulls, largemouth bass, frogs, spiders, and praying mantises.

How fast do hummingbird wings beat? How do they move?

It depends on the size of the bird. The largest, the Giant Hummingbird, has a wingbeat rate of 10-15 per second. The fastest recorded rate was about 80 per second, on a tiny Amethyst Woodstar, and the slightly smaller Bee Hummingbird - the world's smallest bird - may have an even faster rate. Common small North American hummers like the Ruby-throated and Rufous average around 53 per second in normal flight.
Watch this short slow-motion QuickTime movie of a male Ruby-throated hovering. Look for the figure-8 motion of his wings, which provides lift in both directions. More movies here and here. (All movies are from Tim Doyle and are less than one MB each)

How fast do hummingbird hearts beat?

A rate of 1260 beats per minute was measured in a Blue-throated Hummingbird. In torpid hummingbirds, the heart rate can drop to 50-180 per minute.

What is a hummer? (slang)

More than a blowjob; it's when a girl actually hums (thus vibrating her lips) when her mouth has encased your engorged penis or balls.
Your mom gives great hummers.

Chuck the sitcom:

Our favorite secret agent is back in the one-hour action-comedy series. Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi, "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel") returns as a regular guy who also happens to be the government's most vital secret agent.

Now that those closest to Chuck know his secret, he must try harder than ever to keep his spy life from interfering with his personal life. But this has never been more difficult - his relationship with superspy Sarah Walker is getting serious, and he's about to take on his most personal mission yet: finding his mother.

This season, Chuck's assignments take him far from Burbank, with each mission bringing him closer to uncovering what happened to his mom, Mary Elizabeth Bartowski (guest star Linda Hamilton, "The Terminator," "Terminator 2: Judgment Day").

The ever stoic Colonel John Casey (Adam Baldwin, "My Bodyguard," "Serenity") returns with partner Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski, the upcoming "The Killer Elite"), one of the CIA's top agents and Chuck's new girlfriend.

Also starring are Joshua Gomez ("Without a Trace") as Morgan Grimes, Chuck's best buddy; Sarah Lancaster ("What About Brian?") as Chuck's ever-supportive sister Ellie; Ryan McPartlin ("Living with Fran") as Devon Woodcomb (also known as Captain Awesome), Ellie's husband. Chuck's Buy More team consists of Big Mike (Mark Christopher Lawrence, "The Pursuit of Happyness") and the Nerd Herd, which includes Lester (Vik Sahay, "Time Bomb") and Jeff (Scott Krinsky, "The O.C.").

"Chuck" is co-created by Josh Schwartz ("The O.C.," "Gossip Girl") and Chris Fedak, and is executive produced by Schwartz, McG ("Charlie's Angels," "Terminator Salvation"), Fedak, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Nicholas Wootton. "Chuck" is produced by Fake Empire, and Wonderland Sound and Vision, in association with Warner Bros. Television.

What is ground CHUCK:
First, you have regular ground which commonly comes from the plate (underbelly) and breast of the cow. This is not the choicest of meats and tends to be very fatty, grisly and, in lesser grades, can contain some bone chips. Regular ground beef is the least purchased ground simply because Americans are becoming more health conscience and don't mind paying an extra 50 cents per pound for better quality. This area on the cow is also where corned beef and brisket come from. Usually, when your butcher or their packager is processing regular ground beef, they will add in fat found from other parts of the cow. This gives the percentage of fat figure that is seen on your ground beef packaging (e.g. 75-80% lean means that 20-25% of the package is really fat, also known as suet).

Secondly, you can purchase ground chuck. This is the most popular ground on the market. Ground chuck comes from the shoulder and neck area of the cow and is usually very fatty but also has an immense amount of flavoring. This is why such cuts of meat as a chuck roast are favored for a hearty winter meal. Served with potatoes and gravy, this cut can be especially delicious but has a downside of too many fat calories. Sometimes, when processing ground chuck, the butcher will blend a better grade of fat (if necessary) in with the meat. This fat comes from other "chuck type" cuts of meat such as rib-eye steaks. Ground chuck is great for a juicy burgers and mouth watering meatloaf.

Your third choice is ground round. The "round" area is actually the rear or rump of the cow. This is the area where a rump roast, round steaks and round roasts come from. This meat is high in flavor, very lean and also a tad bit chewy. Perfect for a slow cooked pot roast that won't accelerate your fat intake. Ground round is an ideal choice for tacos, lean meatloaf and sloppy joes. It also works well with most Hamburger Helpers since it requires little draining due to the lack of fat content.

Lastly, ground sirloin is approaching almost a cult-type status among the very health conscience who don't want to sacrifice on taste. Generally, a good sirloin cut of meat will have a marbling texture of fat throughout the meat that is completely different from the chunks found in a chuck. This gives an almost angelic blend of fat and flavor for burgers that will truly out of this world.

How much wood could a woodCHUCK, CHUCK:

Dear Cecil:
This question has gnawed at me since I was a young boy. It is a question posed every day by countless thousands around the globe and yet I have never heard even one remotely legitimate answer. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Cecil replies:
Are you kidding? Everybody knows a woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. Next you'll be wanting to know why she sells seashells by the seashore.

Like I didn't see this one coming

Dear Cecil:
Now that you mention it, why does she sell seashells by the seashore?
Cecil replies:
Because if, by way of alternative, she simply did seashell shucking whilst she sat, we'd all be in big trouble.

Poetry ain't good enough for him

Dear Cecil:
With regard to how much wood a woodchuck could chuck, etc., I am happy to say that science marches on, and the quaint but oh-so-unscientific answer you gave has been replaced with a modern one. See the enclosed article in the Wall Street Journal.
Cecil replies:
The article reports on the work of New York state wildlife expert Richard Thomas, who found that a woodchuck could (and does) chuck around 35 cubic feet of dirt in the course of digging a burrow. Thomas reasoned that if a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck an amount equivalent to the weight of the dirt, or 700 pounds. We are pleased to know this, of course. But it sure isn't easy to fit into a snappy verse.

What is random about bacon?

What is Bacon ?

Bacon is a cured meat prepared from a pig. It is first cured using large quantities of salt, either in a brine or in a dry packing; the result is fresh bacon (also known as green bacon). Fresh bacon may then be further dried for weeks or months in cold air, boiled, or smoked. Fresh and dried bacon must be cooked before eating. Boiled bacon is ready to eat, as is some smoked bacon, but may be cooked further before eating.
Bacon is prepared from several different cuts of meat. It is usually made from side and back cuts of pork, except in the United States, where it is almost always prepared from pork belly (typically referred to as "streaky", "fatty", or "American style" outside of the US and Canada). The side cut has more meat and less fat than the belly. Bacon may be prepared from either of two distinct back cuts: fatback, which is almost pure fat, and pork loin, which is very lean. Bacon-cured pork loin is known as back bacon.
Bacon may be eaten smoked, boiled, fried, baked, or grilled, or used as a minor ingredient to flavor dishes. Bacon is also used for barding andlarding roasts, especially game, e.g. venison, pheasant. The word is derived from the Old High German bacho, meaning "buttock", "ham" or "side of bacon", and cognate with the Old French bacon.
