Nov-20-11  BIDMONFA: Algimantas Butnorius

BUTNORIUS, Algimantas

May-16-14  Kurochi: I seen him live once. It seems to me that he has turned blind now as his eyes were very blank and he was always being directed by her wife. Few days after I last saw him in Lithuania he was granted the citizenship of Monaco.

  offramp: This man's name is so definitively Lithuanian that it makes me think that the sprinter <Oscar Pistorius> must have some Lithuanian in his background.
Apr-13-16  thegoodanarchist: Glorious Butnorious!!
