Aynaz Anni Cyrus grew up in post-revolution Iran, where if a 9-year old is raped, she has committed adultery by default, and may be tortured and/or sentenced to death. LISTEN TO HER STORY.


On 16 July 1969, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and the team of Apollo 11 captivated the entire world by sending men to the moon and returning them safely to Earth in just 8 days.

When they were preparing for the moon shot, THIS was No.1 on the Billboard Charts. THIS was No.1 when they left. A month after the astronauts returned, the top hit was THIS.

Three years later, the crew of Apollo 15 placed the only art installation on the lunar surface, a memorial to those astronauts who lost their lives .

Failblog Fail: Cincinnati Chili

Monday, 13 October 2008

Our crack team of webminers here at Tacky Raccoons have identified a true Failblog Fail, although there is definitely a double entendre there.

Skyline Chili, Gold Star Chili and others in southwestern Ohio are regional favorites. This stuff of modern legend doesn’t resemble or taste like chili from elsewhere.  It’s more like a granular soup that you ladle over spaghetti and add toppings.  Bunky discovered it while in High School on weekends after the football/basketball/cheerleader eyeballin’ games.  Pure survival eatin’-when-yer-hungry-food.  If you’re not in the southern Ohio region, you can order it online (click on the images for details).

HOWEVER… The frozen stuff is prolly better but you’ll pay a premium for shipping with dry ice;  The canned stuff, well, Bunk ordered a case of it once and it’s kinda sucky oily… but it’s close to the original.

Many moons ago when Bunky went-a courtin’ the lovely and future Mrs. Strutts, he introduced her to the delicacy favored by locals in the eastern regions of this Glorious Nation, and the future Mrs. Strutts played along until she threw up in the parking lot.

Now about this 3-Way stuff…  That’s how you order it:
3-Way = Spaghetti, Chili, and finely grated cheddar cheese;
4-Way = Same as a 3-Way with onions OR red beans ;
5-way = Same as a 3-Way with onions AND red beans.
(This last one was Bunk’s favorite.)

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot the little saltine oyster crackers, but they don’t count as a “Way.”

Then there’s this:

You’re on your own if you run with that one.  (I’ll give y’all the Strutts Family Recipe, but ya gotta beg.)
