Not commenting very often these days, partly because I often read the comic in bursts and not on a daily basis, partly because I noticed that the later years commenting has turned very political, which turns me off. (I just think there are better foras for political discussion.)But thanks for clearing up the corkage fee for me.
What the heck is a ‘corkage fee’? (Not the rat variety, but I assume there is something called that for real.)
Assume so. It was part of a weekly science news program. The segment was (as I recall) about 45-50 minutes, a French production that the swedish television had bought in, and the “stealing food from women” was the brilliant explanation offered from gender “scientists”. The response from the more sane scientific community (and generally from people interested in gender issues, but not feminists) were devastating. I have tried many times to find the program on the web afterwards, but it seems to have disappeared completly without any trace. (I did see the original broadcast myself, so I know it actually happened for real.)
Don’t expect any sensible answers.
Yeah, cats are shy and don’t like noises.
Guard Duck! Maybe there’s still some hope for the world!
But has he quit smoking???
Still think Australia is a 5-star resort?
Is it better now?
