Try chugging a carton of Draino... I'm sure you'll start seeing Pink somethings very quickly.

Both of you should try semi-total sensory deprivation chambers.

If you go down to the nearest shipping yard, and ask to be put in the barrel with the hole in it for a nice trans-oceanic ride, you'll find out what sailors know as the color pink.

They'll even pay you.  Once.  And all the protein you can eat, in teaspoon-sized quantities.

The piano playing on the score was top-notch.  Even some crappy little kid  could play it if he asked his teacher if it was OK first.

And Lemmy was the greatest American who ever lived. 

There is no finer way to prepare for the mass of All Saint's Day, which is an American federal holiday to enable the faithful to concelebrate mass, than to spend the preceding evening by feasting, were it not the equally valid method of contemplatively imitating the lives of varied saints.

Exactly.  One of the greatest Americans of all time. 

He might have had, it's been speculated, some distant relatives from Cornwall, whose descendents would certainly have survived him, but testing was inconclusive after his half-digested corpse was found washed ashore intermingled with the remains of a harpooned orca near Victoria, B.C.

That is true. 

American young women taste like something you wouldn't want to eat, like sparkles, ponies, synthetic overripe fruit, and other synthesized cleansing compounds.  And this is from someone who eats horsemeat when I have the opportunity.

But in the main, all white people taste like unseasoned, skinless chicken breast or tofu.  And generally they are either (i) doughy pasty blobs or (ii) lean, over-scrubbed obsessives whose faces look like taut, deflated basketballs.  Very difficult to distinguish beyond those genera. 

I taste like meat, pork rinds, beer, pipe smoke, and musty books.  And smell like discarded fast-food remnants and gasoline.

Nonsense.  American Puritanism and other strains of imported British protestantism forbid excessive drink, food, and merry-making.  Therefore the American is a meager, joyless, pale wisp.

The Frenchman is the fattest, but by edict he has commanded the Frenchwoman to remain lithe.

But he's an urbane sophisticate who is totally not illiterate or demented.  A citizen of the world!  Even his family clan is multiethnic and generationally inclusive.  And friendly to animals!  That muskrat pelt on his head was carefully harvested without injury to the donor.

No.  no.  no.

I'm really not sure what I was going for there either.

The google translate is mostly right, but "princeps" has a particular meaning besides just "first" in a temporal sense.

Something about muskrats or something.  Or the T-Bag US president.  Or Alfred Tarski and correspondance theories of truth.  I just don't remember what the antecedent of "this point" is supposed to be.  All I know is I was thinking at the time about the Pax Britannica and how Napoleon (the first!) could have done something were it not for those damned ships of the Brits.

So, it probably is something about Napoleon III, not a very good elected French leader by most standards.

Meh, so it was a swing and a miss.  I think there might have been some beer drinking going on.

He was a stupid jerk.  They probably didn't even have horn sections back then.

That guy was a total cornholer.

And don't get me started on Haydn.  He didn't have an equal temperament.

I'm pretty sure he was blasted on cocoa and caffeine 24/7.

He coddled his beloved string parts by giving them all the easy sharp keys.

If take a two tunes that can produce pitch and tune one up a quarter tone.... You can make a quarter tone scale scale them.

So if you got four identical tunes that can produce pitch.... or eight.....

Imagine what that does for the ears for sharpening pitch.
