I've made many mistakes in my life, but, if I were to live my life again, I'm sure I could repeat them exactly.

I'd hope we'd learn from past mistakes and instinctively not make the same ones again. Call it karmic evolution...that's (if) you need a label. :)

No one is wiser than us, the users of the Zappa.com forum. We "know" and enjoy what all the others have missed. :wink:

Talk about bad advice: In 1557, European doctors recommended smoking to combat bad breath and cancer.

They still may be right now that the numbers no longer support smoking as a major cause of cancer, any number cruncher will tell you a 60% drops in use and a 400% rise in cases does not support the model... :smoke:

Shemp was deathly afraid of animals. He demanded glass barriers between him and stunt animals.

But apparently, Chairman Mao never brushed his teeth. Which more than makes up for it.

The Chinese Have No Cheese
by the Dave Brockie Experience


I walk into a Chinese restaurant and can't get cheese
They ask me to order something else please
But this is America
I demand my cheese
In a Chinese restaurant I do as I please

The Chinese eat no cheese
They think we smell like shit
Everybody must have cheese
Still the Chinese don't believe

So I took my problem and I went overseas
To the land of the giant jingo-Japanese
But I couldn't get enough ice in my Coke
My world fell apart!

The Chinese eat no cheese
They think we smell like shit
Why the hell won't they eat our cheese
I challenge 10,000 centuries!

So I took my problem and I went to Mars
I stumbled round all the crummy downtown bars
But I couldn't get enough dicks in my butt
My ass fell apart!

The Chinese eat no cheese
They think we smell like shit
Why the hell won't they eat our cheese
We challenge 10,000 centuries!

Well I walk into a Chinese restaurant
And I ordered a lamb
Prepared in a way that is dear
To the folk of Iran
I begged and pleaded
My entreaty went unheeded
My mission it took place in a pan
The cheese of the Jesus
It deforms the fetus
The turd of a Western man...

The Chinese eat no cheese
They think we smell like shit
Everybody must have cheese
Still the Chinese don't believe!

The Chinese eat no cheese
The Chinese eat no cheese
The Chinese eat no cheese
The Chinese eat no cheese

They're inscrutable
They're unstoppable
Nice complexions
No pimples pop-able

What about Crab Rangoon?

Back in 1964 Isaac Asimov made some predictions of the year 2014.

Bags of crisps are not made to withstand major changes in air pressure. Bring a bag with you when you use a ski lift, and it'll burst.

Where do you ski? :shock:


Wouldn't any Bic or pressure fueled lighter burst in your pockets too then? I've taken bags of pretzels and even a bottle of champagne 4,000 ft*. vertically up the lifts at Heavenly Valley and opened them at the top. Everything was fine, although the champagne was a little more bubbly. I've never had anything burst before. I have heard stories of boob jobs blowing up on airplanes from the pressure. (I don't believe that happened) But maybe a bag of crisps/potato-chips might blow.

Tie a bag of crisps to a helium balloon and let it go. If it rains crisps, you'll know it's true! :twisted: :idea:

*from 4,000 to just above 8,000 ft.

It depends on the bag, of course. Crisp bags aren't completely airtight and can let some air out or in, but if the bag isn't too well-constructed, it could burst on the ski lift due to sudden decrease in air pressure.

So I would have to be riding down the ski lift for this to work? Or a quick ski down the Mt. might make it go pop too. :?
Hmm, I would have thought the compression/compressing of the bag, not the decompression would pop it.

I feel a D'OH! moment comin' on. :lol:
