Muammar Gaddafi [guh-dah-fee] (1942 – 2011) was the leader of Libya since a coup in 1969 until he was killed in a popular uprising in 2011. His regime was associated with numerous acts of state-sponsored terrorism in the 1970s, 80s and early 90s.

With the death of Omar Bongo of Gabon in 2009, he became the longest serving of all current non-royal national leaders and he was one of the longest serving rulers in history. Gaddafi is alleged to have amassed a multi-billion fortune for himself and his family.

A-Spot

afe

The anterior fornix erogenous zone (AFE or A-Spot) is a female erogenous zone that when stimulated can lead to rapid vaginal lubrication and arousal, sometimes without any other form of stimulation, with continued stimulation resulting in an intense orgasm. It is located at or near the deepest point on the anterior wall of the vagina, above the cervix, where the anterior wall of the vagina starts to curve upward. The posterior fornix is also believed to be an erogenous zone, called the ‘deep spot.’

Some believe that the AFE is the anterior fornix itself, but some sex experts believe it to be a degenerated female prostate (a theory that many have already applied to the G-spot and the Skene’s gland) or the area where the vaginal nerves connect, which is thought to be near it. One other theory is that it is the vesicouterine pouch, due to its proximity to the supposed location of the AFE zone and the supposed erogenous qualities of the rectouterine pouch. The AFE redirects female ejaculatory fluid, which is expelled from the Skene’s gland during G-spot orgasms, and turns it into vaginal lubrication. Because stimulating the AFE zone causes this mechanism and creates an erotic sensation simultaneously, full arousal occurs very quickly.

G-Spot

gspot

The G-Spot is a bean-shaped part of the vagina located one to three inches (2.5 to 7.6 cm) up the front (anterior) vaginal wall between the vaginal opening and the urethra and is a sensitive area that is part of the female prostate. Although the G-Spot has been studied since the 1940s, disagreement persists over its existence as a distinct structure, definition and location. There is also hypotheses that the G-Spot is an extension of the clitoris and that this is the cause of vaginal orgasms.

The term ‘G-Spot’ was coined in 1981, and named after the German gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg, even though his 1940s research was dedicated to urethral stimulation and not internal vaginal wall stimulation. While not disputing vaginal responsiveness to stimulation, gynecologists and doctors continue to be skeptical of the existence of a distinct anatomical feature in the G-Spot rub zone. Stimulating the G-Spot through sexual penetration, especially in the missionary position, is difficult to achieve because of the special angle at which penetration must occur. G-Spot stimulation is easier to achieve by using both manual stimulation and sexual intercourse.

SEV

nasa sev

The Space Exploration Vehicle (SEV) formerly known as the Lunar Electric Rover (LER) is a vehicle designed by NASA for extra-vehicular activity on a planetary surface or in-space missions. The SEV is the size of a small pickup truck, it has 12 wheels, and can house two astronauts for up to two weeks. The pressurized module contains a small bathroom with privacy curtains and a shower head producing a water mist for sponge baths. It also contains cabinets for tools, workbench areas and two crew seats that can fold back into beds.

The SEV consists of a chassis and cabin module, and will allow the attachment of tools such as cranes, cable reels, backhoes and winches. Designed for 2, this vehicle is capable of supporting 4 in an emergency. With wheels that can pivot 360 degrees, the SEV is able to drive in any direction. This vehicle is designed to be used with or without the pressurized module. Astronauts can enter and exit without space suits directly from an airlock docking hatch, or through a suitport without the need to depressurize the habitat module.
