Tabasco Heat-Seeking Missile

Tabasco does not openly advertise its history with the U.S. Armed Forces. During the Spanish-American War, John Avery McIlhenny, son of Tabasco’s inventor and the second president of McIlhenny Company, served in the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, better known as Theodore Roosevelt’s Rough Riders. His son, Brigadier General Walter Stauffer McIlhenny, USMCR, a World War II veteran and recipient of the Navy Cross, presided over McIlhenny Company from 1949 until his death in 1985. During the Vietnam War, BGen. McIlhenny issued the The Charlie Ration Cookbook. (Charlie ration is slang for the field meal given to troops.) This cookbook came wrapped around a two-ounce bottle of Tabasco sauce in a camouflaged, water-resistant container. It included instructions on how to mix C-rations to make such tasty concoctions as “Combat Canap├ęs” or “Breast of Chicken under Bullets.”

Infrared homing refers to a guidance system which uses the emission from a target of electromagnetic radiation in the infrared part of the spectrum to track it. Missiles which use infrared seeking are often referred to as “heat-seekers”, since infrared (IR) is just below the visible spectrum of light in frequency and is radiated strongly by hot bodies. Many objects such as people, vehicle engines and aircraft generate and retain heat, and as such, are especially visible in the infra-red wavelengths of light compared to objects in the background. NATO brevity code for a heat-seeking missile launch is Fox Two.

Frank’s Red Hot Sauce nipple modification

Frank’s Red Hot is a hot sauce made from Louisiana Sunlongs, a variety of cayenne pepper.

Its history dates back to 1896 to the Frank Tea and Spice Company founded by Jacob Frank near the banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati, Ohio. Frank would in 1918 contract for the Estilette Pepper Farm in Louisiana where Adam Estilette and Jacob Frank became business partners. The two men mixed spices, vinegar, garlic and cayenne peppers; they blended them and allowed them to age, and created the original blend of Frank’s Red Hot as it first appeared on the market in 1920.

A nipple piercing is a piercing, centered usually at the base of the nipple. It can be pierced at any angle but is usually done horizontally or – less often – vertically. Also it’s possible to place multiple piercings on top of eachother. A nipple piercing typically takes 3-6 months to fully heal. Some people have noted that they can take up to a year and a half to fully heal. It’s recommended that if stretching a nipple piercing, the piercee waits at least the healing time of their piercings between stretches.
