And this has happened before! They just left the previous boulder in place.

The one behind the house is roughly 12 feet x 12 feet x 20 feet, at the minimum. That's 200 tons at 150 pounds per cubic foot.

Apparently this was a drug runners boat crossing the English Channel 3 time a week. Estimates are 2000hp and $185,000 worth of engines. A special high speed helicopter had to be brought in to chase and catch it!

Calf size is strongly determined by genetics... people tell me I have some freaky calves and the signals to my left one aren't even all there.

The McDonalds Valentines day thing is hilarious but I suspect that its just McDonalds responding to demand. I'm thinking that some McDonalds manager went to work on Valentines day expecting it to be quiet only to find the restaurant full with couples. They then decided to cater to the demand.
