That swill??? I'd drink a toast to a Kleon victory party, rather than let anything Romulan past my taste buds!!! Kleon's we all know are hostile, Romulans are sneaky traders of backroom deals of certain doom. (they want to control music)

Here's to The Zappa Free Trade agreement or the ZFT as we call lovingly call it. Free universal music for everyone from all quadrants of our diverse universe. How cool is that? :wink: 8) :smurf:

I think you'll like it alot BBP. It seemed a bit on the long side overall, but for his last film, he deserved a few extra scenes. :)

Monopoly was originally designed by Lizzie Magie around the 1900s, to teach people how, when a person has money, (s)he'll bankrupt the other players in due time and there's nothing you can do about it. It's really about feeling miserable while watching you in an unwinnable position, losing slowly.
The terrier, ship, car, top hat and horseman tokens represent wealth, the wheelbarrow, iron and thimble represent hard work.

The best places to have and develop are the orange and red ones: the most visited space is Jail and orange is at a decent roll from there. The worst place to have is the green and dark blue, since they're in the shade of the Go To Jail-space.

Humans have stripes! They're called the Blaschko lines and are usually invisible.

Aristotle believed testicles were weights that tensioned the vocal cords.

Earwax wetness is determined by a single gene; 97% of Europeans have wet earwax, while 95% of East Asians have dry earwax.

That made sense, given castrati were sopranos...

It doesn't work the other way round: a male won't turn into a boy soprano by castrating himself.

When fighting a mystical force such as gravity...

...it's best to use a mystical force such as Charlie.

Image

(Note tractor in Charlie's balance, rear wheel a foot off the ground, driver focused).

Only the tip, only the tip was sticking 3" out of the grass, a small annoyance for the lawnmower...

...we had no idea it was a thousand pound bwana dick under the lawn.

That boulder looks like leaverite.....leaver right where you found it....unless you've finally deciphered D B Cooper's treasure map that is.

Am watching old newsreels about The Netherlands on britishpathe.com.
One of those vids shows a dog hoola-hooping.

Youtube isn't a new invention, people. They made silly dog vids back in 1950.

When the Germans started to invade The Netherlands on May 10th, 1940, the Dutch army was to laugh at, with few fighting forces, outdated guns and ships... The German troops had 759 tanks. The Dutch? 1. One Renault FT that was primarily used for testing fortifications; and it was out of order at the time of the outbreak.

I'm trying to find out more about that little tank, where it is now and what it was called.
