Yeah I've heard that about the possible mistranslation. Seems Arabic is one of those languages (like Chinese) that can have a single word mean 14 different things depending on context and position in the sentence. (Just found out it's not Allah it's Bubba!)

Remember friends HE doesn't drink so it wouldn't surprise me he made it through 500 or 10,000 or whatever without making any gender mistakes.

Me I'll be 50 years old next month and I'm still working on my first 100. (I won't tell you how far along I am.) :wink: Of course I'm not as cute as HE. I have to use my charm.

Susan is to be sainted someday, I am convinced.

Yeah Frank I hear Margaret Thatcher is looking for a bed warmer for those cold cold nights.

Susan gets sainted and you get knighted.

Becoming a dog has improved Frank's chances of women taking notice of him.

Allow me to confirm that Wilt Chamberlain claimed to have slept with 10,000 women during the course of his life. Someone once calculated that, if it were true, old Wil would have been with each woman for I believe 2-3 minutes, assuming a normal basketball player's practice time, game schedule, etc. Not a very flattering portrait of his endurance in that regard.....

As a Jew, am I able to nominate Susan for sainthood, or is that overstepping my bounds?
Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristrocratic forms. No gov't in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, gov't tends more and mroe to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class

I don't think she wants to be a saint. Then she won't be in hell with Harlan.

But didn't Chamberlain include orgies in his final calculations? Surely that can't count!

I guess I'm a quality over quantity guy. Not anyone will do.

Yeah, quantity has never been my "bag", so to speak...

(Thanks, Frankie...)

Psst Lori, :wink: I miss coffee with you. CB&TL sometime? Email me at the "Doctor Who" addy. I've lost your # and e-mail address.

Taye actually sent me a personal invite to a private SG party on the 4th of July! (I'm sure it was due to you, so I'm letting you know. I politely turned her down. Too chicken to go without my best girlfriend posse riding shotgun!)
