Largest Pool in the World!

Somehow, this came up in conversation about the worlds biggest pool. Break out the smartphones and checked it out. This pool is insane.  It was built by a company called Crystal Lagoons out of Chile for a private resort called San Alfonso del Mar. This pool is just ridiculously huge and completely dwarves the 2nd largest pool recognized by the Guiness Book O’ Records.

CoD:BOps2 Revolution DLC

The new Call of Duty Map Pack, Revolution was just announced. They say it will be available for XBox on January 29th and other platforms will follow. The best part of this new DLC, is that it will allow you to play as the zombies! It also has 4 new maps and a new gun called the “Peacekeeper” which is a DLC first for the Call of Duty series. The new maps that they are releasing do look pretty awesome. There’s a skatepark with plenty of curves, a map way up in the snow covered Alps, a sand stormed hotel and a high-rise building that apparently let’s you jump around between floors. Def worth checking out the video Activision released.

Barbecue Sauces of the U.S.

Barbecue sauce is a uniquely American sauce that differs depending on the region that you are in. The majority of them are Tomato and Vinegar based, but depending on the history of the area and the culture of the people living there, they all offer something different.  From deep brown thick sauce, to a white creamy sauce, a yellow spicy sauce or just a kicked up Au Jus, It can be whatever you like.  These are the major variants that can be found and a little history about them.

East Carolina Sauce

Most American barbecue sauces can trace their roots to the two sauces common in North Carolina.[citation needed] The simplest and the earliest were supposedly popularized by African slaves who also advanced the development of American barbecue. They were made with vinegar, ground black pepper, and hot chile pepper flakes. It is used as a “mopping” sauce to baste the meat while it was cooking and as a dipping sauce when it is served. Thin and sharp, it penetrates the meat and cuts the fats in the mouth. There is little or no sugar in this sauce. Due to the sharp taste, it has more of a cult following amongst people not of the region.
