|Jul-20-07|| ||YouRang: Oh yes, we were discussing marketing blunders...
-- The company Electrolux, a Scandinavian company that manufactures and sells vacuum cleaners, first attempted to market in the United States in the 1970s. Their chosen slogan was, "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux."
-- A German consumer goods company that tried to market and sell toilet paper and other paper goods in the United States named their goods, "Krapp."
-- When Pepsi tried to use its slogan, "Come Alive with Pepsi" in Japan, the translation came to mean, "Bring back your dead ancestors with Pepsi."
-- Frank Perdue's chicken slogan, "It takes a strong man to make a tender chicken" was translated into Spanish as "It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate."

|Sep-26-07|| ||willyfly: I am not FREE - I am affordable, reasonably priced Willy and I am guessing that the Fly you are referring to is the movie where the guy becomes part Fly while experimenting with a transporter device. FREE might be a third cousin twice removed or a second cousin thrice removed. Actually the name comes from a song - "Will he go round in circles? Will he fly high like a bird up in the sky?" (I needed to think of a name for an email account a long time ago.) As for the necktie? It just tells what kind of a guy I am. I am a croupier - that is - a dealer in a casino. So - as you can imagine I get teased a lot for the Willy name. It's all for fun. Thanks for stopping by my profile.|

I could have a birthday cake,but it would be a fire hazard.
A chess position that makes many a player quit,due to its complexity.

|Jul-19-10|| ||ahubers: Hey I follow this site a lot and just recently registered. Do you live in Iowa? I live on the west side of Iowa (will disclose the name of the small town I live in once further information is posted concluding that you are not a murderer, rapist, terrorist, or sociopath). I'd crap my pants if you lived in Iowa because I thought I was the only one in this remote state that played Chess daily.|
|Feb-24-11|| ||theodor: <kevin86: Three punny quotes related to ears (and hearing) |
1"Friends,Romans,countrymen- lend me your ears" : Julius Caesar
2 "I'm all ears":H Ross Perot,1992 presidential campaign.
3 "Do you hear me now?" :Verizon commercial.> here some drawings of mine about ears: http://www.flickr.com/photos/488478...
If you merge Hawkeyes and Buckeyes together you get a bunch of crossed eyes from OHIOWA.
|Jun-23-11|| ||bartonlaos: Hi <kevin86>.
On another thread we're trying to sort out definitions of Epaulettes mate, and origins of similar terms. You used a term "pseudo-epaulettes" here: A Planinc vs K Hulak, 1977 ...
If you have any references or further understanding would you mind sharing some of your information here: Topalov vs Karpov, 1998
