^ Chibachi Nero's icon says it much better than I could.

Na-Geanna, the title of the last Mahoromatic episode, is a dual reference: First, to the "Wild Geese" (Na Geanna) regiments of Irish mercenary soldiers; second, to the single-malt whiskey of that name produced by Richard Hennessy, himself a Wild Goose before he began producing the famous cognac brandy.

From the preview narration:

Quote
"Long ago, a man left his homeland behind. The man drifted to a foreign land and was enamored by the spirits made there. He built his own distillery and lived the rest of his days there. The distillery hailed the man's accomplishments and made a spirit from the man's homeland. But, it was far too gorgeous...and was unlike any of the spirits from the man's homeland. Its flavor was both sweet and awfully melancholic..."

In washington, its illegal to sell porn that has the act of "fisting" in it because it is concidered inhumane;

This can also apply to toys, but there's a way to loophole around that.

Conventional produce in supermarkets is sometimes harvested up to two years before it is actually sold. Most food you buy is at least a week old. Sometimes the produce is artificially sprayed with coloring to make it look more "natural."

Yeah...go organic.

They once thought all Hyenas were hermaphrodites because the females body parts were as big as the males.... and they participate in casual sex with both genders.

The name Wendy did not exist before Peter Pan. It was made for Peter Pan.

In the case of the character from J. M. Barrie's play 'Peter Pan' (1904), it was created from the nickname fwendy "friend", given to the author by a young friend.

However, the name was used prior to the play (rarely), in which case it could be related to the Welsh name GWENDOLEN and other names beginning with the element gwen meaning "white, fair, blessed".

My sister is named Wendy, but her name was derived from the popular song of the day, by Association,  that was playing in the hospital at the time of her birth.

Did you know that the Japanese Bobtail is considered good luck? It's true. In 16th centruy Japan a royal decree freed all cats in order so they could deal with the rodents who threatened the Japaneses' precious silkworms. Once the rodent populace was handled the cat became an integral part of Japanese culture. And it spawned the waving cat which promotes prosperity for Japannese entrepreneurs by inviting people to come into their business.
One cannot truly live life without having a sense of honor.

Too much vitamin c will kill you

Drinking too much water can kill you too....

There is more Vit C in an onion than an orange

Vit C will make Barnacles start having sex

Barnacles have a ridiculous body size:penis length ratio.  It's 40 times longer then their body length.  :)  The longest ratio in the world!!

If, after your claims you wrote for a patent have been rejected twice (same claims)
AND you then decide to appeal within the Patent Office to the PTAB (Patent Trials and Appeals Board)
and you STILL get turned down on appeal, it USED TO BE that your only next step was an appeal
in the CAFC (Court of Appeals of the Federal Circuit) and maybe the Supremes after that.


But that was when the Patent office was located in Washington DC. Now that the US Patent office
has relocated to Alexandria Virginia, (hint: a STATE) you have another avenue before trying to hit up
the CAFC. You get to sue the Patent Office in District Court - the EDVA (Eastern District Court
of Virginia.)


Cool thing about the EDVA is that unlike the CAFC which are a bunch of government gumbies who
tend to side with the Patent Office 9 times out of 10, ("They're Government - we're Government -
they know what they're doing - Back to your hovel, citizen!") in the EDVA you have a *chance* at
getting a jury of regular folks to evaluate the case.


They don't give a terminal orifice of a rodent's alimentary canal about patent law, and they might
give you and your client a fair shake...

A cubic foot of seawater weighs about 64 lbm. Without the salt, a cubic foot of (fresh) water weighs 62.4 lbm.


To make sure you don't confuse pounds of mass versus pounds of force, you can use 'lbm' for mass and 'lbf' for force.

The Buffalo Bills are the only team to have lost 4 straight Super Bowl games, but did so after the Minnesota Vikings and the Denver Broncos lost 4 TOTAL games.  In fact, the Bills' streak began immediately after Denver lost their fourth.
