The eponymous protagonist of the story is Greendog, the player character, a laid back, cool surfer and skater with a mop of bleached blonde hair. He has surfed most of the biggest waves around, including off the coast of Australia, California and in the Mediterranean, and is always in search of the biggest waves which will give him the biggest thrill and he cares for little else in life. He has numerous contraptions and toys, such as a gyrocopter, inline skates, a skateboard and an antique frisbee which could be very dangerous in the wrong hands. He doesn't say much except "dude" and "cool".

Rocky gives Paulie a robot servant/friend called Sico (an actual robot invented by International Robotics founder Robert Doornick[3]) that fetches him drinks and foodstuffs as a birthday present. Paulie's tough, unsentimental demeanour is highlighted by the brusque disdain with which he initially treats his mechanical helpmeet - dismissing him as "a walking trashcan."[4] However, by the end of the film, Paulie proudly introduces the robot as "my girl" to Apollo Creed and claims that she loves him. It is suggested that Paulie has helped the robot to transition from male to female - through some unknown kind of reprogramming. How Paulie gained the necessary skills remains unexplained, but it may have to do with his naval background.

The Downing Street website describes Larry's duties as "greeting guests to the house, inspecting security defences, and testing antique furniture for napping quality". It says he is "contemplating a solution to the mouse occupancy of the house" and has told Downing Street that such a solution is still in the "tactical planning stage".


Larry is the 10 Downing Street cat and is Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office.

Many dung beetles, known as rollers, roll dung into round balls, which are used as a food source or breeding chambers. Others, known as tunnelers, bury the dung wherever they find it. A third group, the dwellers, neither roll nor burrow: they simply live in manure.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scatman_John

Larkin died at his home in Los Angeles on 3 December 1999 at the age of 57. He was survived by his wife Judy, his mother Harriet, and his brother Bill. He was cremated and his ashes were "scattered" at sea near Malibu, California.

hmmmm

The term rumpology is a neologism. The American astrologer Jackie Stallone claims that rumpology is known to have been practiced in ancient times by the Babylonians, the Indians, and the Ancient Greeks and Romans,[2] although she provides no evidence for this claim. Stallone has been largely responsible for the supposed "revival" of rumpology in modern times.[citation needed]


edit:

The British rumpologist Sam Amos also uses shape to diagnose personality,[5] and claims that "A round bottom indicates the person is open, happy and optimistic in life. However, a flat bottom suggests the person is rather vain and is negative and sad."[6]

The colour of Hyalessa maculaticollis varies between green and black depending on the location. Also, only the males make a calling sound, and this changes depending on the location. Japanese individuals have a call that sounds like 'min—minminminminmi...' (Japanese: ミーンミンミンミンミンミー…). Meanwhile, the sound of Korean individuals is like 'minminminminmi...' (Korean: 맴맴맴맴맴...) and a longer note duration (min—....) is found in the latter half of the sound.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_Festival
Labor Day Weekend, 1982
The festival ran for three days, in 110 °F (42.5 °C) weather. There were 100 arrests[citation needed] and a reported 35 drug overdoses.[citation needed] One "associated" murder of a hitchhiker occurred the day after the event.[citation needed] The festival lost a reported $12 million.[4] (Bands are listed in the order they appeared.)

Memorial Day Weekend, 1983
The reprise festival ran for three days, this time at the helm was Colorado-based promoter Barry Fey, who with Wozniak added a fourth Country Day a week later. Attendance was reported at 670,000 when you add each day's total together; the festival still lost $12 million.[5] There were two reported deaths.[6][7]

Clifford the Big Red Dog is an American children's book series about a giant red dog named Clifford. It was first published in 1963 and was written by Norman Bridwell (1928–2014). Bridwell himself had a dog he based the stories on, however his pet canine was neither big nor red.[citation needed]

Thyssen-Bornemisza was also an avid horse lover. From then on, his business was limited to art.

Margit Gabriella Lujza Freiin Thyssen-Bornemisza de Kászon et Impérfalva was this guy's sister

she sounds really nice

During the final days of World War II, on 24 March 1945, she hosted a party for SS officers, Gestapo leaders, Nazi Youth, and local collaborators at the Thyssen's castle at Rechnitz during which 200 Jews were slaughtered. Whether Margit herself personally killed anyone at the party is disputed.[2]

Trouble on the Corner is a 1997 crime, drama film in which Tony Goldwyn plays Jeff Steward, a psychologist, takes good care of his patients mostly living in the same apartment. One day a piece of the bathroom ceiling collapses so he can watch the woman living in the upper apartment taking a bath. This causes total disorder of his normal life and he starts mixing the patients' psychoses up with his own.

Yes actually, with prostitutes usually. Some people in drug deals etc will ask someone to show their dick or do something sexual, similar to “if you’re a cop you gotta tell me”. They think cops can’t do sex shit or something but courts have ruled otherwise and cops are pigs so of course they’d take advantage

Historical accuracy

Also disputed is the film's portrayal that air support was denied. A House Armed Services Committee report found that air support was unavailable, or it would have arrived too late to make a difference.[46] but how did they know how long it would last? The French defended the film's references to air support, writing that even if resources could not have been flown in during the time available, this would itself be "scandalous", given Libya's known instability.[54] In July 2016, the Republican-led House Select Committee on Benghazi released its report that included numerous witnesses indicating that U.S. military help was available, but not called upon. The report indicated the Department of Defense would not provide the requested list of military assets that were available that night.[57] The film also asserts that Ambassador Stevens didn't want additional security, but that is false.[citation needed]

When the Pawn, which was produced by Jon Brion, used more expressive lyrics, experimented more with drum loops, and incorporated both the Chamberlin and drummer Matt Chamberlain.
