Making A Boat Of Plastic Bottles

A plastic bottle is a bottle made out of plastic. Plastic bottles are usually used to store liquids such as water, soft drinks, motor oil, cooking oil, medicine, shampoo, milk, and ink. The size ranges from very small sample bottles to large carboys.

Plastic bottles were first used commercially in 1947, but remained relatively expensive until the early 1960s when high-density polyethylene was introduced.

They quickly became popular with both manufacturers and customers due to their lightweight nature and relatively low production costs compared with glass bottles. Except for wine and beer, the food industry has almost completely replaced glass with plastic bottles.

There is an ongoing concern as to the use of some plastics in consumer food packaging solutions. The environmental impact of the disposal of these products, as well as concerns regarding consumer safety, are still debated.

Plastic water bottles are regulated by the FDA. The FDA periodically samples bottled water and also inspects bottled water plants. Plastic water bottle plants hold a low priority for inspection due to a continuously good safety record.  

Turning A Ball Of Fur Into A Dog

Fur is a term used to reference to the hair of animals, usually mammals, particularly those with extensive body hair coverage. The term “pelage” can also be used to refer to the body hair of an animal as a complete coat.

Fur is also used to refer to animal pelts which have been processed into leather with the hair still attached. The words fur or furry are also used, more casually, to refer to hair-like growths or formations, particularly when the subject being referred to exhibits a dense coat of fine, soft “hairs.”

Animal fur, if layered, rather than grown as a single coat, may consist of short down hairs, long guard hairs, and, in some cases, medium awn hairs. Mammals with reduced amounts of fur are often called “naked”, such as naked mole rat and naked dogs.

An animal with commercially valuable fur is known within the fur industry as a furbearer. The use of fur as clothing and/or decoration is considered controversial by some people: most animal welfare advocates object to the trapping and killing of wildlife and to the confinement and killing of animals on fur farms.

Fur has been a major challenge for 3D computer graphics artists due to its visual complexity and physical properties. The first movie that managed to create realistic fur with CGI was Pixar’s 2001 film Monsters, Inc.

The Only Shop That Sells Stitched Products

Retail is the sale of goods and services from individuals or businesses to the customers. Retailers are part of an integrated system that is known as the supply chain. A retailer purchases goods or products in large quantities from manufacturers directly or through a wholesale, and then sells products to the consumer for a profit. Retailing can be done in either fixed locations like stores or markets, door-to-door or by delivery. In the 2000s, an increasing amount of retailing is done using online websites, electronic payment, and then delivered via a courier or via other services.

Retailing includes subordinated services, such as delivery. The term “retailer” is also applied where a service provider services the needs of a large number of individuals, such as for the public. Shops may be on residential streets, streets with few or no houses or in a shopping mall. Shopping streets may be for pedestrians only. Sometimes a shopping street has a partial or full roof to protect customers from precipitation. Online retailing, a type of electronic commerce used for business-to-consumer transactions and mail order, are forms of non-shop retailing.

Shopping in general refers to the act of buying products. Sometimes this is done to obtain necessities such as food and clothing; sometimes it is done as a recreational activity. Recreational shopping often involves window shopping (just looking, not buying) and browsing and does not always result in a purchase.

Tiny Fish That Will Give You Nightmares For A Week

The deep-sea dragon fish is a member of the Stomiidae family. There are many genera and over two hundred different species altogether in this family. The most known about is the Barbeled dragon fish.

Deep-sea dragon fish lives in the deep parts of the Atlantic Ocean beyond where any plant life grows or light reaches, hence its name. This habitat has caused the dragon fish to adapt to the conditions at these depths by having light-producing organs called photophores and skeletons that better suit deep-sea life.

The deep-sea dragon fish, as its name states, lives in the deep-sea of the Pacific Ocean. The Dragon fish tends to live around 1000 to 3000 meters below the surface.

Some dragon fish have even been found at depths of 5000 meters. At these depths, the conditions are very extreme. The pressure can range from 200 to 600 atmospheres and the temperatures fall just below four degrees Celsius. The dragon fish lives below the Bathyal zone where no light reaches.

The Bathyal zone starts at about 220 meters. Past this point, there is no light, and it is deep enough to not be affected by storms or ocean currents, making the environment where the dragon fish lives utterly still.

Going Too Far In Order To Cool Off

An apartment (in American English) or a flat (in British English) is a self-contained housing unit that only occupies a small part of a building. Such a building may be called an apartment building, apartment house), block of flats, tower block, high-rise or, occasionally mansion block, especially if it consists of many apartments for rent. In Scotland it is often called a tenement, which has a pejorative connotation elsewhere. Apartments may be owned by an owner/occupier by leasehold tenure or rented by tenants.

The term apartment is favored in North America and it is also the preferred term in Ireland. The term flat is commonly, but not exclusively, used in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and most Commonwealth nations.

In Malaysian English, flat often denotes a housing block of lesser quality meant for lower-income groups, while apartment is more generic and may also include luxury condominiums. This usage has also been appearing in British English where apartment is used to denote expensive ‘flats’ in exclusive and expensive residential areas in, for example, parts of London such as Belgravia and Hampstead.

In Australian English, the term flat was traditionally used, but the term apartment is also frequently used, as is “unit,” short for “home unit”.

Meet Pig: A Strange But Extremely Cute Dog

Dog is a usual term that refers to members of the subspecies Canis lupus familiaris (canis, “dog”; lupus, “wolf”; familiaris, “of a household” or “domestic”).

The term can also be used to refer to a wider range of related species, such as the members of the genus Canis, or “true dogs”, including the wolf, coyote, and jackals, or it can refer to the members of the tribe Canini, which would also include the African wild dog, or it can be used to refer to any member of the family Canidae, which would also include the foxes, bush dog, raccoon dog, and others. Some members of the family have dog in their common names, such as the raccoon dog and the African wild dog.

A few animals have dog in their common names but are not canids, the best example of this is the prairie dog.

The English word dog comes from Middle English dogge, from Old English docga, a “powerful dog breed”. The term may possibly derive from Proto-Germanic *dukkōn, represented in Old English finger-docce (“finger-muscle”).

The word also shows the familiar petname diminutive -ga also seen in frogga “frog”, picga “pig”, stagga “stag”, wicga “beetle, worm”, among others.

The term dog may ultimately derive from the earliest layer of Proto-Indo-European vocabulary, reflecting the role of the dog as the earliest domesticated animal.

This Is The Clearest Body Of Water On Earth

A body of water or water body (but it can be spelled waterbody) is any significant accumulation of water, generally on a planet’s surface.

The term body of water refers to any large accumulations of water, such as oceans, seas, and lakes, but it also includes smaller pools of water such as ponds, wetlands, or more rarely, puddles.

A body of water does not have to be still or contained; Rivers, streams, canals, and other geographical features where water moves from one place to another are also considered bodies of water. Most bodies of water are naturally occurring geographical features, but there are some that are man-made (also called artificial).

There are types that can be either. For example, most reservoirs are created by engineering dams, but some natural lakes are used as reservoirs. Similarly, most harbors are naturally occurring bays, but some harbors have been created through construction.

Bodies of water that are navigable are known as waterways. Some bodies of water collect and move water, such as rivers and streams, and others primarily hold water, such as lakes and oceans.

The term body of water can also refer to a reservoir of water held by a plant, technically known as a phytotelma.

Two Very Unusual Friends

Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between two or more people. Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association.

Friendship has been studied in academic fields such as sociology, social psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. Various academic theories of friendship have been proposed, including social exchange theory, equity theory, relational dialectics, and attachment styles. A World Happiness Database study found that people with close friendships are much happier.

Although there are many forms of friendship, some of which may vary from place to place, certain characteristics are present in many types of friendship.

Such characteristics include affection, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, mutual understanding and compassion, enjoyment of each other’s company, trust, and the ability to be oneself, express one’s feelings, and make mistakes without fear of judgment from the friend.

While there is no practical limit on what types of people can form a friendship, friends tend to share common backgrounds, occupations, or interests, and have similar demographics.

In the typical sequence of an individual’s emotional development, friendships come after parental bonding and before pair bonding. In the intervening period between the end of early childhood and the onset of full adulthood, friendships are often the most important relationships in the emotional life of the adolescent, and are often more intense than relationships later in life. The absence of friends can be emotionally damaging.

The evolutionary psychology approach to human development has led to the theory of Dunbar’s number, proposed by British anthropologist Robin Dunbar. He theorized that there is a limit of approximately 150 people with whom a human can maintain stable social relationships.

Fitting An Entire Car In A Van

The original van was a huge covered wagon or the front of an army. Time has changed the definition to what it is now to only be a box vehicle.

A modern van is a kind of vehicle used for transporting goods or people.

In English usage, it can be either specially designed cargo vehicle or based on a saloon or sedan, the latter type often including derivatives with open backs (this variation is called a pickup trucks). Vans come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the classic van version of the tiny Mini to much larger vehicles such as cargo vans and other commercial transport vehicles. Vans run up to about 4 tons and are classified as Light or Medium Duty Trucks (in North America) or Light Commercial Vehicles (in Europe). Similar larger vehicles are Lorries (the word Lorrie is used in UK), and are not known as vans.

The modern word van is a shortened version of the word caravan.

The word van has slightly different, but overlapping, meanings in different forms of English. While the word always now applies to boxy cargo vans, the most major differences in usage are found between the different English-speaking countries.

Strange Things To Bring Home From Vacation

A vacation (also known as a holiday) is a specific trip or journey, usually for the purpose of recreation or tourism. People often take a vacation during specific holiday observances, or for specific festivals or celebrations. Vacations are usually spent with company of friends or family.

A person may take a longer break from work, such as a sabbatical, gap year, or career break.

The concept of taking a vacation is a recent invention, and has developed through the last two centuries. Historically, the idea of travel for recreation was a luxury that only rich people could afford. In the Puritan culture of early America, taking a break from work for reasons other than weekly observance of the Sabbath was frowned upon. However, the modern concept of vacation was led by a later religious movement encouraging spiritual retreat and recreation. The notion of breaking from work periodically took root among the middle and working class.

In the UK, vacation once specifically referred to the long summer break taken by the law courts and then later the term was applied to universities.

The custom was introduced by William the Conqueror from Normandy where it facilitated the grape harvest. In the past, many upper-class families moved to a summer home for part of the year, leaving their usual home vacant.
