It must be the tongue

There's this vastly underrated musician named Joe Jackson. He first became known for a song called "Is she really going out with him?" from some time in the late 70's or so. I wonder what he'd have to say about this - a woman married a snake in India.

They say there's no fool like an old fool, and here's your proof - retirees are having problems with VD.

I guess if you're ever going to get the clap et al, that's the time - you're probably out of the reproductive race anyway, and you're likely to croak before any real long-term effects like cancer hit you.

Of course we get the stock answer about VD - it's about "lack of education". Oh stop it - if half a century or more of near-constant messages about sex isn't enough to pound something in your head you might as well give up. And these are generations who would remember as I do when condom machines and packages always bore the warning "for prevention of disease only".

Think of that, Mom, the next time you're forcing the kids to kiss that older relative...

One of the biggest challenges to racists must be watching and listening to infants and small children. Oh sure, you can tell the Asians from the Caucasians from the Negroids, etc, and maybe a skilled anthropologist could pick up subtler things. But IMO without knowledge of their parents and culture you couldn't predict their future political/social behavior or proclivities by observing them. They all pretty much look and sound the same to me anyway.

It's no surprise that Germans weren't too awfully popular immediately after WWII. And having absorbed as much fighting and bombing as they had, there were plenty of German refugees. Many of these were preschool children, who were sent to places like Denmark.

And this is what happened to some of them.
