  1. Tearing

    Tearing is the act of breaking apart a material by force, without the aid of a cutting tool. A tear in a piece of paper, fabric, or some other similar object may be the result of the intentional effort with one's bare hands, or be accidental. Unlike a cut, which is generally on a straight or patterned line controlled by a tool such as scissors, a tear is generally uneven and, for the most part, unplanned. An exception is a tear along a perforated line, as found on a roll of toilet paper or paper towels, which has been previously partially cut, so the effort of tearing will probably produce a straight line. Materials vary in their susceptibility to tearing. Some materials may be quite resistant to tearing when they are in their full form, but when a small cut or tear is made, the material becomes compromised, and the effort needed to continue tearing along that line becomes less. Materials can be characterized by standard methods to measure their 'tear strength'. There are several applicable standards which vary around the world. The variables which affect the tear strength can be summarized neatly by the quote: "The value of tear strength obtained depends on the shape of the test piece, speed of stretching and temperature of test."

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Bbw and ssbbw About your beauty in one sentence: it’s just nowhere hotter, or just nowhere more juicier. My love for you immerses in eternal fidelity only to you, my soul belongs only to you. Not realistic, supernaturally beautiful lady of my heart, much more beautiful than a puppet appearance, much more beautiful than any masterpiece of time, suffering only for you alone, my love for you is eternal and indestructible like eternity itself. The skin is like the white flowers of the heavens, the magnificent body forms gentle as a cloud, the beauty of the absolute perfection of the universe and genetics. You are more beautiful than reality and the most beautiful dreams of romance, you are more beautiful and more desirable than any dream. The scorching, sultry heat of your hot beauty, burns with its hot sexuality, like a hot sex bath with the highest temperature of lust, excitement and passion, I am sweating with admiration and love.Your gaze is a love spell of eternal love. You are my sex obsession. Every detail of your body is so eloquent; it is the highest level of eloquence of nature. No kind of art will express your amazing beauty, your beauty is above aesthetics. Your beauty is spiritual aesthetics. You are so beautiful that compliments themselves come out of my mouth and I just can't stop. My mind admires you tirelessly. Your image dominates and dominates in my heart, mind, soul and penis. Tearing your eyes off you is much more difficult than breaking away from a computer video game or the Internet, I look at you with pleasure and lust for so long and eagerly that I don’t even know how much time has passed. The hot heat of your sexuality burns, I feel an uncontrollable attraction for you, I am literally saturated with love and lust for you, my body is created only for you alone, for eternal sex with you, my soul for eternal romance with you, every second with you is an eternal love nostalgia of romance.

  4. Samantha Bee:

    Tearing children away from their parents is so evil, it's the inciting incident in almost every movie we've ever cared about.

  5. Ann Landers:

    Class has a sense of humor. It knows that a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations. Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past mistakes. Class bespeaks an aristocracy unrelated to ancestors or money. Some extremely wealthy people have no class at all, while others who are struggling to make ends meet are loaded with it. Class is real. You can't fake it. Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is already up and need not attempt to look better by making others look worse. Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class because he is comfortable with himself. If you have class, you've got it made. If you don't have class, no matter what else you have, it won't make up for it.
