Um, your thumb and forefinger have cellulite.

It looks like a head of a dinosaur if you tilt your head to the left...

Maybe I missed it, but what is the xian significance (apart from being the Promised Land area)? Or am I just being slow?

Yeah, and there sorry, but there was also no higher meaning to the space pic - loads of you got it. Cookies for all.

The wife and I hit Paris recently. It was my first trip, and I would like to share some things I learned.

First, the public toilets there can be quite impressive. In this toilet just off the Jardin des Tuilleries you can not only relieve yourself, you can also buy a snack and make a telephone call. Nice!





Second, the French seem to have an irrational fear of each other's ass germs. Quite a few of the toilets don't give you the option of sitting down. Bummer!

Do those toilets come in different shoe sizes? I'm not sure that one would fit me.

....and the interesting thing is that some of those toilets have attendants with a little tray where money must be deposited. This idea of a public paying toilet originated with the emperor, son of god Christos, Vespasianus ca 68ce. Thinking of a way to make money for the growing Empire he decided to tax the toilets where the urine was collected as cleaning material for the fullers. He had already demolished the GOlden House of Nero filling the lake where his colossal statue once stood to build his amphitheater ( this word means double theaters back to back) This frugal intelligent man was an atheist ( epicurean) and had a great sense of humor. Public toilets in France are called Vespassiennes in honor of their creator.

There is an interesting anecdote from Dio Casius ( Dio 65.14.5 ). When Vespasianus was criticized for his urinal tax, he cleverly said " Money has no smell".

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

Careful, or you'll piss on your sabots!

Also, I'm not sure I can pinch a loaf into that little drain hole.....

Now that you mention it, there was a guy on duty in there, but we didn't put any Euros in any tray. Oh well, I suppose that was not our only faux pas.

Yeah, it is an awfully small target for those of us who are used to just sitting and letting it drop, as opposed to precision bombardiering.
