Sorry if it sounds harsh, it is not personal, BBP, but modern western arrogance in face of what is not mastered and fully understood by the public in general is blatant... I am not saying I approve or disapprove of tarot, though, all I know is that she plays a mean one... indeed...

The Japanese used the codename "Operation Hawaii" for the attack on Pearl Harbor. This later changed to "Operation Z".
And it was a surprise attack.

Learnt "expectorate" is another word for "to spit".

Do you ingurgitate or expectorate?

I thought expectorate was the act of producing sputum, as opposed to gobbing it out.
as in "I expectorated, then gobbed it on jean jacques brunel".

I wouldn't do that if I were you. Look what happens when somebody throws beer at him.

He's calmed down.
When I saw someone gob on him in 1978, he smashed them on the head with his bass.

What gig was that? (I'm still kicking myself for not going to see them on their last tour; "Giants" was their best since "Meninblack").

BTW, i recently attended a docu about banana production today. The condition for the workers are still lousy cause the business suffers from low consumer prices for bananas.

I'd noticed the single father thing, but there's a reason...

Quote:
Many early Disney characters are motherless because of the guilt that Walt felt over his mother's death in 1938. After the success of Snow White, Walt bought a home for his parents. A faulty heating system in the home led to the death of Flora Disney by carbon monoxide poisoning.

Whenever I hear about bananas, I am reminded of the picture below.
In Communist East Germany bananas were a rarity. When the wall came down in 1989, one of the first things East Germans wanted to buy in the West was bananas. The cover of the satire magazine "Titanic" was therefore...

The slogan translates as: [East] Zone Gabi (17) - in happiness (West Germany): "My first banana!"

There's an abandoned theme park in Berlin, called Spreepark. The park's exploiter took 6 rides with him to Peru, which the authorities allowed because they believed they were being repaired.
Later, that same exploiter tried to smuggle 180 kilos of cocaine in the masts of one of the rides when he took it back. He got caught and was sentenced to 7 years of prison.
