Re: The Silencer and bra strap !

Hi. I'd like to complain a bit, then perhaps nag a bit before I complain some more. Mainly about the weather. It's early January and it's raining cats and dogs! I don't  know if I've ever mentioned what country I'm from ( ajb007/shifty ), but this was not in the brochure. I understand this is the standard weather in the autumn, but in January it's supposed to be snowy and so cold enough to film the live action version of  Frozen.  ajb007/mad

Now I feel much better.  ajb007/smile
A very cold Coke Zero, please? Plenty of ice, of course.

I've just been informed that the English word gift is related to the Norwegian word gift (meaning "married") and the Norwegian word gift (meaning "poison"). I leave it to the forum to speculate on how.  ajb007/lol

Just watched a very interesting documentary on YouTube about the Russian and American
rivals for Concorde.  The Russian one had a couple of crashes and was scrapped, The
American was so complicated with wings which swept back to form a Delta wing, that it
became too heavy and too expensive, so Boeing went for its back up, stop gap replacement
the Jumbo jet 747.

I think I've seen the same documentary as you did, TP. Have you applied your brilliantly active mind to this mystery?  ajb007/biggrin

Reminds me of the old joke about what a Bride thinks on entering a church on her wedding, from
the first things she sees and hears  ....... ..... " Isle, Alter, Hymn "   ajb007/wink   or I'll Alter Him

Just a quick update on my  Casio DW 290 ( Mission Impossible watch ) on the 28th of December
I set it to the correct UK time ( to the second ) and today I checked the time on display to a web
page giving the correct UK time...... it was spot on not a second out  ajb007/martini  and all for £25  ajb007/biggrin

Re: The Silencer and bra strap !

Volda is a municipality as close to my heart as only a municipality can get. Volda just got a new crest and for some reason national media has picked up on it. They say it looks feminine to them. I don't get it, what's so feminine about the nib of a pen and two blades from a scythe? (you have no idea how much I had to google to to translate that sentence into English  ajb007/lol )

You may  be on to something ……  ajb007/lol
Actually the nib of the pen (the part that looks like a vagina) has been the crest of Volda for decades. I remember jokes about it the 90's. I think the blades look like hips and make the simularities so obvious even the rest of the country cought on.  ajb007/shifty

I saw the logo and thought that it looked a bit suspicious ajb007/shifty then i saw your comment and was relieved too see i am not the only one ajb007/lol Reminds me of that episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where Marie makes that sculpture that looked funny. Everyone told her what it looked like but she couldn't see it.

You're absolutely not the only ones  ajb007/biggrin
I remember back when the old crest with only the nib* there when locals were joking that the crest should be called "Samantha" (Fox).  ajb007/lol
I guess the municiplas thought every joke had already been and the new crest wouldn't be noticed by more people. Boy (or ... girl) were they wrong ….


* ('nib' sounds a bit like "nebb", meaning "beak" in Norwegian. Could there be a link? It just occured to me)
