Anonymous 2/07/2012 10:51 PM—I can answer your question. Scandinavian representating the three major branches of Vikingdom, when conversing among themselves, speak a special dialect known as "Horn-Helmet", which is mutually intelligible to all (especially when lots of ale has been consumed).Finns are different, however. They speak Suomi, which is also known as "Klingon". Outside of Finland, nobody within the orbit of Pluto can understand this strange argot.

I cursed that ‘Pick Up a Penguin’ endline everyday from jail after I was charged with meeting a small flightless arctic bird in a bar and taking her back to mine for a spot of slap and tickle.

Thank you so much for giving renvyoee an extremely nice possiblity to read from this web site.

John,Two small sentences in your post were profound; we should follow them not only in designing, but in life.  They were:Give him the honor of taking his opinion seriously; it will free him to know if he really means it. Help him get where he wants to go. If he needs to circle back, be there when he arrives.In life, as in design, one of the hardest things to do is allow people to work things through for themselves, giving them enough space to come to a different (or the same) conclusion without feeling foolish or somehow “wrong.”

Your web site may be very helpful. Thanks so much for offering loads of valuable material. We have bookmark your blog site blog and can be without any doubt coming back. When yet again, I enjoy all of your do the trick as well as comeing the following to communicate with me.

'thats what i'm wearing!'.now you have to understand-the anthrax was a big deal for us.so of course we all wanted to wear 'cool shirts'.but rob had no love of the dead milkmen and i really tried to talk him outta wearing it at that show,but rob had (and probably still has) this quality to do what people did not expect or thought was 'cool'.it was almost like a statement of intent of being slight outsiders,which we inevabitley became (which is another slew of stories)."

Bynum’s extension doesn’t have a “chance” of being max, it WILL BE the max.BTW, I believe we will be witnessing Kobe signing an extension next season but something that of the 10M per season range.

Ja, I don’t think I would actually do the spider walk thing, I might, but not just somma. I do know to from experience that the sac (spelling) is aggressive and may just go for you instead of running away, I saw one do this once. The “Boom Slang” is my favourite. I think he’s a pretty colour.

By the look of things Sachin will be given the first right of refusal. Especially with Pawar at the helm, and Ganguly a confirmed Dalmia. Sachin will of course refuse as he has done so in the past. Knowing the BCCI, and after the ridiculous issue of still not having appointed a coach, they will just appoint Dhoni as the captain for the Australia ODI series.

Buenos dias! queria preguntar ¿puedo ser fiscal de mesa (suplente)si no tengo mi DNI por que ne lo han robado hace 10 dias? GraciasY respondió el 29 de mayo de 2009 a las 12:38:Gastón: Presumo que usted se refiere a ser autoridad de mesa suplente. Los fiscales son por partido político. En mi opinión (no soy abogado) puede ser suplente, deberá probar que usted es usted al presidente y los fiscales, pero lo que NO puede, es votar, ya que para eso si y solo si tiene el documento.
