Soggy biscuit

Soggy biscuit is a male group masturbation activity in which the participants stand around a biscuit or cookie masturbating and ejaculating onto it. The game is played by adolescents, notably in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia. In Australia, it is known as soggy Sao after the SAO brand of biscuits that are popular there. Although soggy biscuit is not associated with homosexuality, since the game does not require sexual contact, the idea and practice of the game is in keeping with the spirit of adolescent sexual exploration associated by many in the UK with public schools or in Australia with private schools. Although the terminology may differ the notability of the game is such that variations on the theme are referred to in popular culture, examples including Stephen Fry's The Liar, the German film Crazy, the 2006 film Sleeping Dogs Lie, the "Chains" episode of Blackadder II, the "Freaks & Greeks" episode of Drawn Together, the "Sleepover" episode of Big Mouth, Limp Bizkit, Skinless's song "Scum Cookie".

According to the book Law of the Playground, 1866 men were asked: "How close have you got to the game of soggy biscuit, in which you race to wank onto a cracker?" Of the respondents, 6.2% admitted to having played the game. In November 2011, The Eagle-Tribune reported that police were investigating claims that two Andover High School basketball players were hazed by older team members into playing the game. In January 2012, it was reported that two students were expelled over the incident and a further five were suspended. A grand jury was convened to determine.

Farrukh Hormizd

Farrukh Hormizd or Farrokh Hormizd known as Hormizd V, was an Iranian prince, one of the leading figures in Sasanian Iran in the early 7th-century. He served as the military commander of northern Iran, he came in conflict with the Iranian nobility, "dividing the resources of the country". He was killed by Siyavakhsh in a palace plot on the orders of Azarmidokht after he proposed to her in an attempt to usurp the Sasanian throne, he had Rostam Farrokhzad and Farrukhzad. Farrukh Hormizd was a member of one of the seven Parthian clans, he was the son of Vinduyih, a descendant of Bawi, whose sister was the wife of Kavadh I and mother of Khosrau I. Farrukh's father and uncle, played an important role in defeating the Mihranid Bahram Chobin and restoring Khosrau II to the throne. Khosrau, had Vinduyih executed, which made Vistahm revolt against him; the rebellion of Vistahm lasted from 590/1–596 or 594/5–600, until he was betrayed by one of his own generals. After the death of Vistahm, Farrukh succeeded him as the spahbed of the north.

During the late Byzantine–Sasanian War of 602–628, Farrukh Hormizd, his son Rostam Farrokhzad, rebelled against Khosrau II, allowing the Byzantine emperor Heraclius to invade Atropatene, where he sacked several cities, including the Adur Gushnasp temple. In 628, the feudal families of Iran joined Shahrbaraz. Kavadh was released by the feudal families of the Sasanian Empire, which included: The House of Ispahbudhan represented by Farrukh Hormizd himself, his two sons Rostam Farrokhzad, Farrukhzad. Shahrbaraz, who represented the Mihran family; the Armenian faction represented by Varaztirots II Bagratuni and the Kanarang. On 25 February, along with his commander Aspad Gushnasp, captured Ctesiphon and imprisoned Khosrow II, he proclaimed himself as shah of the Sasanian Empire and assumed the dynastic name of Kavad II. He proceeded to have all his brothers and half-brothers executed, including the heir Mardanshah, Khosrow's favourite son; the murder of all his brothers, "all well-educated and chivalrous men", strapped the Sasanian dynasty of a future competent ruler, has been described as a "mad rampage" and "reckless".

Three days he ordered Mihr Hormozd to execute his father. However, after the regicide of his father, Kavad proceeded to have Mihr Hormozd killed. With the agreement of the Iranian nobles, he made peace with the victorious emperor Heraclius, which allowed the Byzantines to gain all their lost territories, their captured soldiers, a war indemnity, along with the True Cross and other relics that were lost in Jerusalem in 614; the fall of Khosrow II culminated in a civil war lasting four years, with the most powerful members of the nobility gaining full autonomy and starting to create their own government. The hostilities between the Persian and Parthian noble-families were resumed, which split up the wealth of the nation. A few months a devastating plague swept through the western Sasanian provinces, killing half of its population including Kavad II, he was succeeded by his eight year old son Ardashir III, killed two years by the distinguished Iranian general Shahrbaraz, in turn murdered forty days in a coup by Farrukh Hormizd, who helped Boran ascend the throne.

When Boran ascended the throne, she appointed Farrukh Hormizd as the chief minister of the empire. She attempted to bring stability to Iran by the implementation of justice, reconstruction of the infrastructure, lowering of taxes, minting coins, her rule was accepted by the nobility and clergy, apparent by her coin mints in the provinces of Pars, Khuzestan and Abarshahr. No opposition was voiced towards her gender. However, after some time she was deposed in 630, Shapur-i Shahrvaraz, the son of Shahrbaraz and a sister of Khosrow II, was made shah of Iran. However, he was not recognized by the Parsig faction of the powerful general Piruz Khosrow. Shapur-i Shahrvaraz was thus deposed in favor of the sister of Boran. Farrukh Hormizd, in order to strengthen his authority and create a modus vivendi between the Pahlav and Parsig, asked Azarmidokht to marry him. Azarmidokht, declined. After having his proposal declined, Farrukh Hormizd "no longer shied away from the throne itself", declaring "Today I am the leader of the people and the pillar of the country of Iran."

He started minting coins in the same fashion as a monarch, notably in Istakhr in Pars and Nahavand in Media. In order to deal with Farrukh Hormizd, Azarmidokht allied herself with Mihranid dynast Siyavakhsh, the grandson of Bahram Chobin, the famous military commander and shah of Iran. With Siyavakhsh's aid, Azarmidokht had Farrukh Hormizd killed. Rostam Farrokhzad, at that time stationed in Khorasan, succeeded him as the leader of the Pahlav. In order to avenge his father, he left for Ctesiphon, "defeating every army of Azarmidokht that he met", he defeated Siyavakhsh's forces at Ctesiphon and captured the city. Azarmidokht was shortly afterwards killed by Rostam, who restored Boran to the throne. Schmitt, Rüdiger. "Personal Names, Iranian iv. Sasanian Period". Encyclopaedia Iranica. Schmitt, Rüdiger.

Scott Huckabay

Scott Huckabay is an American composer, acoustic electric guitarist and poet. Huckabay is a world touring musician and composer known for his live guitar performances and original music. On August 16, 1987, during the auspicious weekend of the Harmonic Convergence, he was involved in a high-speed collision with a truck while riding his motorcycle in Tempe, Arizona. After waking up in the hospital recovery room, a steel-string acoustic guitar was found at the foot of the bed left by an unknown source. Once he touched the instrument, Huckabay says, he discovered that creating sounds on the guitar helped relieve the pain from his injuries, he began developing his own unique style of playing. In that same year, a Michael Hedges concert was a major influence for Huckabay. While living in Hawaii in late 1991, Huckabay continued refining his guitar technique. Swimming in the ocean, Huckabay developed a form of sound with telepathy, which he believes enables him to communicate with the dolphins and whales on a daily basis.

However, there are no scientific proofs or records in any form that such kind of communication between humans and marine mammals has happened. According to Huckabay these sounds became an integral part of his music. From a scientific point of view, these allegations are obscure and not considered possible, he started performing live shows in Hawaii at the Hawaii Slam, West Coast including California, Washington and Arizona and touring the rest of the world. Scott is a descendant of Chiricahua Apache Nde Nation. In 1991, Huckabay won the BAM magazine'Guitarist of the Year' contest held at the Roxy Theatre. November 11, 1992, Huckabay joined an all star line up for the free Kauai Hurricane Iniki survivors concert, which included Crosby and Nash, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Buffett, Jackson Browne and Titus Kinimaka and the Kauai Boys. CSN, Bonnie and Jackson had just played two nights on Oahu, with the Pahinui Brothers, raising money for the victims of the hurricane that swept Kauai two months earlier.

Huckabay had been living on a secluded beach when the massive Hurricane Iniki hit the island during a full moon on September 11, 1992. Much to the dismay of Scott's loyal local following, his effects failed right at the beginning of his first song, leaving him to soldier through a stock acoustic set. A popular Kauai conspiracy theory afterwards was that after hearing the sound check, when the effects were working, Stephen Stills had Scott's rig sabotaged because Stephen couldn't stomach getting shown up that bad. In 1995, Huckabay produced his debut album, "Virtual Altar", recorded live on the boardwalk in Venice Beach, California. In 1996, he recorded, "Peace Dance", in 1999, "Alchemy", which won the 2000 Independent Visionary Award, he records various production projects with Soundings of the Planet, their motto,'Peace through Music'. In 1999, Huckabay performed at various ancient sites in Egypt and found a harmonic and spiritual affinity with an ancient site called Dendera Temple complex that resonated with musical frequencies.

On December 31, 1999, Huckabay performed a concert inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. Two months Scott released the CD,'Temple of Dendara', he learned about the Solfeggio scale and how each tone affects the human body according to esoterism. Huckabay tunes the guitar intuitively using the Solfeggio tones that he believes help create health and balance. However, there is no scientific proof or indication that the solfeggio scale affects health in any way. Huckabay released the CD, Secret Portal, produced by Sylvia Massy at RadioStar Studios in Mt Shasta, California. Huckabay plays a 2001 custom built 610CE Taylor Guitar with a combination of a Sunrise S-1 magnetic pickup and several custom Fishman piezo pickups embedded in various locations inside the wood of the guitar to capture percussive sounds built by Bob Taylor of Taylor Guitars, he is left handed and experiments with a variety of guitar effects pedals by Boss Corporation. He uses a violin bow, EBow, Morley Pedals, Quartz crystal and an RC-20 Loop Station by Roland Corporation to create a multiple of guitar rhythmic patterns.

Making full use of this equipment, he is able to equalize the live sound from his instrument to achieve different sounds for every song within each concert venue. Scott has used well over 250 alternate guitar tunings. Scott uses custom gauge Ernie Ball guitar strings.

Crayon Shin-chan

Crayon Shin-chan known as Shin Chan, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshito Usui. It follows the adventures of the five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara and his parents, baby sister, dog and friends and is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture of Japan. Crayon Shin-chan first appeared in 1990 in a Japanese weekly magazine called Weekly Manga Action, published by Futabasha. Due to the death of author Yoshito Usui, the manga in its original form ended on September 11, 2009. A new manga began in the summer of 2010 by members of Usui's team, titled New Crayon Shin-chan. An anime adaptation of the series began airing on TV Asahi in 1992 and is still ongoing on several television networks, worldwide; the show has now been dubbed in 30 languages which aired in 45 countries, has over 1007 episodes and 26 full-length movies. More than 275 million copies of the manga have been sold worldwide in 20 years. An anime spin-off titled Super Shiro, produced by Science Saru, premiered in October 2019.

The story follows Nohara's family dog, becoming a superhero and protecting the legendary bone "Bobobobobone" from the evil inventor dog and his ambitions of world domination. Many of the jokes in the series stem from Shin-chan's weird and inappropriate use of language, as well as from his mischievous behaviour. Non-Japanese readers and viewers may find it difficult to understand his jokes. In fact, some of them cannot be translated into other languages. In Japanese, certain set phrases always accompany certain actions. A typical gag involves Shin-chan confounding his parents by using the wrong phrase for the occasion. Another difficulty in translating arises from the use of onomatopoeic Japanese words. In scolding Shin-chan and attempting to educate him in proper behaviour his parent or tutor may use such a phrase to indicate the correct action. Through misinterpreting such a phrase as a different, though similar-sounding phrase, or through interpreting it in one sense when another is intended, Shin-chan will embark on a course of action which, while it may be what he thinks is being requested of him, leads to bizarre acts which serve only to annoy his parents or tutors more.

This is not restricted to onomatopoeic words, since any word can become a source of confusion for Shin-chan, including English loanwords, such as mistaking "cool" for "pool". Some other humorous themes which are repeated in the series are of a more universal nature, such as gags based on physical comedy or, as a child, unexpectedly using adult speech patterns or mannerisms, but there, many of the gags may require an understanding of Japanese culture and/or language to be appreciated. Shin-chan becomes besotted with pretty female characters who are much older than him, an additional source of humor is derived from his childlike attempts at wooing these characters, such as by asking them "Do you like green peppers?". He continually displays a lack of tact when talking to adults, asking questions such as "How many times did you go to the police?" to tough-looking men or "How old are you?" to elderly people. The series works under a sliding timescale where the characters have maintained their ages throughout the course of the series.

Though time has passed to allow for the rise and fall of several pop culture icons, marriages and births of various characters, all the characters still maintain their age at the time of their introduction. For example, if the two major births in the series are taken into account, Shinnosuke would be seven years old and in second or third grade, but he is not. Crayon Shin-chan first appeared in 1990 in a Japanese weekly magazine called Weekly Manga Action, published by Futabasha, it started as a spin-off of the character Shinnosuke Nikaido of another series by Yoshito Usui, Darakuya Store Monogatari. The chapters were collected into 50 tankōbon volumes, which were published under Futabasha's Action Comics imprint, from April 11, 1992 to July 10, 2010. Yoshito Usui died on September 2009 after a fall at Mount Arafune. After Usui died, Futabasha planned to end Crayon Shin-chan in November 2009. Upon discovering new manuscripts, Futabasha decided to extend the comic's run until the March 2010 issue of the magazine, which shipped on February 5, 2010.

Although the series formally ended on February 5, 2010, it was announced on December 1, 2009 that a new manga would begin in the summer of 2010 by members of Usui's team, titled New Crayon Shin-chan. A series of four bilingual Japanese-English manga were released in 1996 in Japan as Shin-chan: The Little Horror!. ComicsOne translated ten volumes of Crayon Shin-chan into English and released it in the United States. Occasional pop culture references familiar to Americans, such as Pokémon and Britney Spears, were added to increase the appeal to American audiences; the manga is mirrored from its original to read from left to right. Starting with the sixth volume, many of t

Massage chair

A massage chair is a chair designed for massages. Traditional massage chairs allow easy access to the head and back of a massage recipient, while robotic massage chairs use electronic vibrators and motors to provide a massage; the first massage chair was designed in 1954 by Nobuo Fujimoto. He made various versions of the chair from scrap materials before he was satisfied with the chair. Chair Massage is done in an ergonomically designed portable chair. Chair massage focuses on the head, shoulders, back and hands. Massage therapists are able to offer on-site massage to many environments because of the portability of the massage chair, clients do not need to disrobe to receive a chair massage. Due to these two factors, chair massage is performed in settings such as business offices, employee appreciation events, trade shows and other corporate settings. A robotic massage chair contains internal electronic motors and gears designed to massage the person sitting in them. Most robotic massage chairs have some form of controller to vary the type, location, or intensity of massage.

The first electric massage chair was invented in Japan before World War II. Massaging chairs most resemble recliners. There are many different types and brands, including office-style chairs that operate from internal batteries. A less expensive option is a separate massaging pad; the benefits of a massage chair include deep relaxation, reduced blood pressure, a lowering of the pulse rate, increased metabolism. Massage chairs are designed to mimic the hand motions of a massage therapist, they use a combination of massage airbags to massage the different parts of the body. Robotic massage chairs were first brought to market in 1954 by the Family Fujiryoki company. Today, Japan is the largest consumer of massage chairs with some surveys suggesting that over 20% of Japanese households own a massage chair. Massage chairs vary tremendously in price and intensity, from cheap "vibrate only" chairs to full intensity Shiatsu models. Back pain Shiatsu
