Assam is a black tea named after the region of its production (Assam, India). This tea grown at sealevel is known for its body, briskness, malty flavor, and strong, bright color. Historically, Assam is the second commercial tea production region after China. China and Assam are the only two regions in the world with native tea plants. Assam tea revolutionized tea drinking habits since the tea, produced from a different variety of the tea plant, yielded a different kind of tea.

Fantastic comedy about strippers and their life in the hellhole of Las Vegas. (Play the Showgirls drinking game by drinking every time Gina Gershon says Darlin’ – it’s a great way to get very very drunk.) Pure trash as only the wonderful Paul Verhoeven can do it.

c.1400, from O.Fr. fausset “stopper,” perhaps dim. of L. faux, fauc- “throat.” Spigot and faucet was the name of an old type of tap for a barrel or cask, consisting of a hollow, tapering tube, which was driven at the narrow end into a barrel, and a screw into the tube which regulated the flow of the liquid. Properly, it seems, the spigot was the tube, the faucet the screw, but the senses have merged or reversed over time. Faucet is now the common word in Amer.Eng. for the whole apparatus.

Unless you’re on a golf-course, this is just the most irritating US-esque “bigger is beautiful” invention ever created.....even cars don’t get my goat as much as these bloody things do.

Just too fucking big.

Something, usually a dedicated device, that sits on the cable between you and the evil Interweb and stops nasty packetses from getting to your machine.
Compare with Packet Filter, a piece of software you bought (*cough* illegally stole) that claims to be a “Firewall” but really sits on your machine and tries to stop Windows noticing the nasty packetses.
