    Polar bears may have smelly feet, but who’s going to tell them that?

    Do the vampires up in Forks, Washington (Edward Cullen and associates) count as part of the AVA?

    This is illustrative of how wealthy we really are as a society, relatively speaking. I can go out and buy a bouquet of flowers, get black pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg off the shelf, dine on coconuts and pineapple, imbibe coffee from the island of Java, and it won’t even cost me a day’s wages! Truly remarkable in an historical context for someone who lives in the Northeast USA.

    Since they “identify” as vampires their health insurance will pay for the transformations. Then they get their own bathroom!

    I don’t believe the vampire story. There’s more than 5,000 lawyers in the US…

    If you were to ever go back in time to the Middle Ages, Black Pepper would be the best thing to take with you to trade with. It was extremely rare and expensive at the time.

    The vampire drawing is of Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins, from the 1960’s soap opera “Dark Shadows.”

    That pineapple fact kinda puts “Cabaret” into perspective.

    Don’t most animals have smelly feet?

    In college, I had a professor in nutrition class who referred to some people as “vampires” (in quotes). By that, she meant people who were prone to skin cancer, and avoided the sun. When they went out, they would wear long pants (not shorts), long sleeves, and wide brim hats.
