Quote of the day

We must both have been hungry because we constantly led the conversation round to food.

"What is your favorite dish, grandad?"

"All of them, my son. It's a great sin to say this is good and that is bad."

"Why? Can't we make a choice?"

"No, of course we can't."

"Why not?"

"Because there are people who are hungry." I was silent, ashamed. My heart had never been able to reach that height of nobility and compassion.

- Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Just watched the following movie not too long ago. Both Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger had dialect coaches to assist them.

Thursday, August 7. Saskatchewan at Winnipeg.

Third quarter. Winnipeg ball at their 27 with 3:00 to go. On 2nd-down Drew Willy fumbled and Rider DL David Lee returned it 11-yards for the score!

David Lee's wife was in the stands.

Watch her reaction ...

English-speaking soldiers frequently found themselves serving alongside French-speaking soldiers in the First World War, often with little chance of one understanding the other. So when French soldiers would exclaim "il n'y a plus!" meaning "there's no more!" the English soldiers quickly commandeered the expression and anglicised it as napoo, which they took to mean finished, dead, or completely destroyed.
