Captain Dick Stevenson, Inventor of the Yukon's Legendary Sourtoe Cocktail, Has Died.

Captain Dick Stevenson, inventor of the Sourtoe Cocktail According to Dick Stevenson, he found the first toe in a cabin he bought in Dawson City in the early 1970s. It turned up in a pickle jar while Stevenson was cleaning out the cabin. A dried up human toe in a jar, frostbitten, supposedly cut off a prospector decades earlier.

9 Machines That Beat the Berlin Wall. Thomas ImoGetty Images November 9, 2019, marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the physical embodiment of the Iron Curtain separating East and West in the Cold War.
The Wall was built in 1961 to stop East Germans escaping to the West, but thousands found ways to beat it, using modified cars, a zipwire, and other feats of backyard engineering. Outside Berlin, intrepid escapees built their own submarines, a balloon, and even a microlight to overcome the wall. The Berlin Wall comprised two concrete barriers separated by a "death strip," which was 160 yards wide and covered by border guards with Kalashnikovs.
What We Know About Tulsi Gabbard’s Base. Hawaii Rep.
Tulsi Gabbard has spent most of the 2020 presidential campaign on the periphery, attracting low levels of support. But she’s also managed to develop a bit of a cult following as an outsider candidate who has sparred with the Democratic establishment and been critical of the use of American power abroad. Her unorthodox views and conflict with the party have even fueled speculation that she might run as a third-party candidate — a claim Gabbard has repeatedly denied. However, one thing is clear: Gabbard doesn’t seem to be planning to drop out any time soon. In late October, she announced that she would not seek reelection to her seat in Hawaii, and while she’s by no means a front-runner in the race, she has managed to qualify for the November debate and is just one poll shy from making the December debate after Quinnipiac University released a New Hampshire survey on Monday that found her at 6 percent.
So what do we know about Gabbard’s base? Real-Life Telepathy Is Closer Than You Think. Longtime U.S. diplomats outlined their discomfort and disapproval with what they described as a campaign by President Donald Trump’s allies to hijack Ukraine relations for Trump’s re-election campaign, the central issue in Trump’s potential impeachment.
George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for Eastern Europe, and Ambassador Bill Taylor, the top diplomat in Kyiv, opened public hearings before the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry by detailing the workings of a shadow foreign policy quarterbacked by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. The goal of that effort was to compel Ukrainian officials to provide Trump aides with damaging information on Trump’s domestic political rivals. Taylor referenced his now well-known text to fellow diplomats saying that withholding security assistance in exchange for help with a U.S. political campaign would be “crazy.” “I believed that then,” Taylor told the legislators, “and I believe it now.” Related in Politics That Republican, Rep. The dice man cometh. So the power of the dice should not be underestimated.

"People occasionally ask, 'Aren't you afraid that dice people will come and do horrible things and you will be blamed? ' Pro-Kremlin Reporters Tour Abandoned U.S. Base in Syria. Footage of an abandoned U.S. military base in the town of Manbij in northeast Syria shared by pro-Russian government media shows the haste with which U.S. troops pulled out of the city they had patrolled for a year. The Russian-backed Syrian army entered Manbij on Tuesday, taking advantage of an abrupt U.S. retreat from Syria after the Turkish incursion, and deployed deep inside Kurdish-held territory south of the Turkish frontier. The United States has “handed over” Manbij to Russia, an unnamed Pentagon official told Newsweek on Monday as Russia announced its military police were patrolling the area.
Photos shared Tuesday by a little-known Russian news group, ANNA, showed wires sticking out of the walls, and snacks and other assorted items lying around the dimly lit U.S. base.

Delaying “brain age” may sound like the latest quick-fix gimmick on a late-night infomercial, but the science underlying the concept is very real. Rather than reflecting the average functional state of your chronological age, brain age looks at how well your brain is aging relative to how many birthdays you’ve celebrated. We all know people that seem sharper and act much younger than their age—that incredulous moment when you realize the 40-year-old you’ve been chatting with on the plane is actually a grandma in her 70s. Brain age, as a concept, hopes to capture the biological intricacies behind that cognitive dissociation. It’s not just pure academic fun, either. Longevity researchers have increasingly realized that how long you’ve lived isn’t the best predictor of overall health. The Diver Who Brings Up the Bodies.
In November 2018, a 66-year-old man named Tommy Thompson was wheeled into Judge Laurel Beatty Blunt’s courtroom in Columbus, Ohio, clad in a dark blue suit and looking like he had just served four years in federal prison. Thompson’s hair, once thick black curls, had given way to a bald pate, and with a long white beard and piercing eyes, he looked like a slightly hairier Christopher Lee, the actor who played the wizard Saruman in The Lord of the Rings.
Throughout the trial, Judge Blunt interrupted Thompson’s testimony to reprimand him for veering wildly off course. Thompson had long insisted that he suffers from neurological problems and chronic fatigue syndrome, which impairs his memory, and that his meandering explanations were a symptom of the distress foisted upon him. But Judge Blunt, like other officials who’d presided over civil and criminal cases against Thompson, claimed that his malingering was the maneuvering of a hyper-intelligent con man.

MILTON, MA—Wincing at the smell of formaldehyde as she entered the beauty school morgue, cosmetology student Linda Emerson admitted Wednesday that she was nervous for the part of her studies where she’d have to cut hair on cadavers. “I know it’s important to practice before you give a haircut to a living, breathing person, but doing a bob-chop on an 80-year-old dead lady just really freaks me out,” said Emerson, who, after shampooing her cadaver’s hair in the sink with the help of other students, was chastised by an instructor for ripping off a part of the scalp during what should have been a routine blow-drying exercise.
