Mr. Global looks like a collection of national superheros.

Yeah those Mr Global outfits would look pretty silly on me.

Now, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, three films that’s all there ain't no more.
That’s Star Wars, everything else are leeches, posers, Star Warsish, Star Wars type, in the Star Wars mold, they are not Star Wars.

I got my first cat by accident, literally, in 1981. Didn’t have a clue what to name him until we went to the movie Caveman. There were only around 30 "caveman" words in it:

Tala: Atouk!
[hugs Atouk]
Lar: Ah! Ha-Ha! Atouk. Tala. Zug-zug.
Tala: Mmm. Atouk. Tala. Zug-zug?
Atouk: Nah. Atouk zug-zug Lana.
Tala: Lana?

I looked at one of my friends: "Zug Zug! That's it." So Zug Zug it was. Sometimes shortened to Zuggy. He lived around 19 years and was my best friend. Over time, except to me, the meaning of his name was lost/unknown. Then one day. WTF? REALLY? Boy did I catch some hell.

Happy Friday Miss C!

Epazote herb helps against digestive gas from eating pulses, beans, meat and more.

I could not stand beans as a kid but eat them several times a week now. They are tasty and the 'musical' aspect keeps the 10year old in me happy :P

Bruce: actually, George Lucas had 9 films in mind; he said this as the hype for Star Wars (A New Hope) was heating up.

So, if you want to just keep to Star Wars main story and ignore the origin movies or whatever, you still have 9 to watch and/or collect.
