    I just saw Yoko Ono's flapping cunt of a mouth regurgitate the incoherent ramblings of John Lennon just now in the opening ceremonies of the winter Olympics. Marc David Chapman should have shot her as well.

    She was born on 18th Feb 1933, so she's almost 73. And she would probably like us all to forget that she started out in New York roughie porn (something that she was actually quite good at, for a change):

    Well the whole crop isn't bad just cuz a few bad apples. I enjoyed the ceremony very much (always do for the Olympiad). I had a good time watching who was good looking and who wasn't (Sofia didn't look that good btw).
    Can't wait to see them boys do their thing in freestyle and speed skating (this one should be good for body/crotch watching! Yeah I know it ust be cold there :))

    NO shit. And on a more annoyingly picky note:

    What's up with calling it "Torino" now? Last I heard English speaking people said "Turin".:rolleyes: .. as in "Shroud of?"

    Okay new rule: From now on when speaking of Vencie let's all say "Venezia", when speaking of Florence we'll say "Firenze", when speaking of Naples we'll say "Napoli".. etc.

    Fuck. I just realized what my signature says. Oh well. Guess it still holds true.

    Cool, sounds fun to me. Now don't forget to use the native tongue when referring to any Asian, African, Slavic, or Middle Eastern country or city.

    Hmmm, since Italy is hosting the Games I think they get to decide how to refer to the city. I assume NBC would rather just go along with "Torino" than look like chauvinistic Americans. :wink:

    Had I known about the name background back in the 1970's I'd never have bought that Ford Torino. Nobody wants to drive a shroud on the interstate.

    Sweetpea, I'm with the Italians 100%. On that you can rely.

    It's not the Italians to whom I take exception in this. It's the Americans using "Torino" that sounds affected.

    Were they held in Padua would we be saying "The Winter Olympics in Padova"?? Somehow I doubt it.:rolleyes:

    :eek:fftopic: but :gives2:

    My 2nd car (in 1998) was an 1972 Ford Grand Torino (think Starsky & Hutch with 4 doors)... It was a great automobile with a hot engine. And the engine was easier to work on than my lawn mower!

    Only two problems - 2 gallons to the mile and I had to parallel park that land yacht every morning.

    PERFETTO il mio amico divertente! Non ho pensato del "Ford Torino" quando ho scrivato quella frasa. Adesso, il nome è "Ford Turin"!

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I am bored out of my wits with the winter olympics. The only thing I might watch is the ice skating (I'll admit it is for the small costumes and the wipe-outs). Everything else bring on instant sleep.

    I've never understood how or why the name of a place or a person could be translated into another language.

    On another subject, I was watching the speed jumpers (if that's what they're called) and they ALL have flat asses!

    I work with a musical instrument company out of Padova, and have played recitals in Torino. Since I have been to both cities, I call them by their Italian names, because the people I deal with there call them Torino and Padova. However, some places don't translate, such as Fossano. When I played a recital there, I did tell people I was going to Fossano, because there was no English equivalent. I'm going back to Padova for a trip in a couple of weeks and I can't wait. It's such a cool place. I'll also be spending time in Venezia., and hopefully exploring some of the other small towns nearby.

    I go to Venice twice each year prepstud. I go for roughly two weeks in early spring and two in late September or early October. I know the city like a second home. Private message me if you want some tips on great things to do, places to see, and particularly where to get GOOD Venetian food inexpensively. That alone took me 3 years of overpaying to learn.

    Speriamo che ci sentiamo presto, Richard

    FYI .. as you may know the Germans call Venice "Venedig" and the French call it "Venise".

    If we're talking about the same sport (extra long ski's; going down a ramp and getting launched right at the end), it's most likely from landing on their asses and skidding across the ice at 90 MPH.

    Here's the thing.

    If we're going to "go Italian" as Americans in the use of "Torino" rather than "Turin" let's not be half-assed about it:

    In italiano si direbbe:

    "I giocchi Olimpici Invernali del 2006 à Torino"

    Now that I'll buy.:cool:
