"callithumpian profligacy" !!!!

Omigod. Amazing. I swan. I am going to use that overwhelmingly sophisticated new phrase to confound my friends and acquaintances and reduce them to stunned silence. I can't wait to insert it casually into some mundane conversation and watch the faces around me reel in confusion and envy of my superior verbal skills!

Thank you, Amos. You have done it again. What would I do without you?

And I also find it of dubious moral quality that you choose to go flighting off to our nation's capitol to practice your callithumpian profligacy; it seems t' me you should stand the risk and inflict your gyrations on Pocatello.

Well, that doesn't explain anything. I swan, sometimes I wonder what is wrong with you. Here you have the mystic powers and all, can out run fighter jets and cruise in a bubble, and you can't even complete an ordinary communication. I really do swan.

Amos...I wasn't in an airplane, I was flying by pure faith and will, using oxygen I trapped in a bubble around me. Comfortable enough except for the fighters, but I outran them.

I missed the deadline to give Amos an explanation. Gee, I was at 38,000 feet flying to BWI and DC area for the holidays. Dang. Now I guess he'll never get one.

Google Sets doesn't give a historic perspective, but it does act as a great lint trap for terms you might have missed.

I entered Santa Clause, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Sinterklaas and came up with a bunch more I hadn't heard of or had forgotten. It isn't perfect, but I used it frequently in graduate school to search for obscure authors on related subjects.

Train never stopping

Yeah, I was puzzled about that spike in '39 too, and I can hardly believe that Shatner doesn't get a big spike from around the mid-60s to now. It's inexplicable, unless that site is being secretly run by cultist saboteurs who are intent on rewriting history, misleading the public, and destroying the integrity of poodles through a clandestine program of canine miscegenation! (The latter is a mew theory espoused by Hector Ballsworthy of the Independent Press...and I think he may be onto something!)

Chongo would be most gratified by the results shown on this chart, a charting of the popularity of the greatest city-stomping movie monsters in our culture.

Who's number One?

King Kong rates way higher than the others. The odd thing, though, is that he doesn't appear at all on the chart until the 1940s. That's very odd indeed, because the original King Kong movie came out in the early 30s as far as I know!

Something is seriously wrong with the search engine on that charting system.

The other really odd thing is that Rodan has a big spike of popularity around 1920, long before any movies were ever made about him!

Furthermore, Godzilla isn't scoring nearly as high as he should for some reason. He ought to be as well known as King Kong, in my opinion, or very nearly so.

T'est fou, la. Flit mon tu. (local Shaques for "you are crazy, bite me"... toned down a touch in translation... actually it's to do with somebody named Richard and no actual biting unless you are French and are gentle).

As has been stated, there really is no way that I know of to tell someone to "fuck off" in French. There are international signs of friendship but these are sans voice and require no translation. Although they may differ somewhat between cultures, there is little problem with recognition. The NA version being "the finger". The European versin is not as static and uses two fingers, sometimes an entire forearm but the Europeons are naturally kinda passionate and sometimes a bit more kinky in these matters.

The French use "baiser" when they want to refer earthily to the act itself, and foudrer when they mean it in a general expletive sense such as "fuck off" (foudrez-moi la paix) or "Fuck it!" (Je m'en fous).
