Marzipan like Strongbad's girlfriend? I'm confused.
He received military training 20 years ago and then immediately spent 3 years fighting the soviets. I'd say the veteran label is fair.
That's right boy, just drop 'em.
Boyd is identified as 39 years old in the article over at Atlas. And his son Dylan is 22. Thes facts imply a pretty screwy timeline. He would have been born around 1970, had his first child at 17 around 1987. The story states he was in Pakistan from 1989 through 1992, but his 20 year old son would have been born around 1989. So at nineteen he leaves his wife with a 2 year old and an infant and spends the next three years fighting in Afghanistan?
Maybe there is no fun in Islam, but apparently there is banjo music.
Of course she wouldn't. But she is iconified as an angel of mercy. Her main objective was to make the church presense stronger. Her alleged humanitarianism is far overplayed. There exist several accounts of her callous manor with the infirmed. The point of my comment, then, was merely that a better example could have been selected. I don't think she lived up to the reputation she was given.
Katherine Ross back in the day, mmmm
Even Mother Teresa wasn't as wonderful as she has been portrayed.
Very, very few. But most don't want to show their ignorance and so don't question the term. I've used it and then paused to ask the person I was talking with if they knew the expression. Most people won't ask for clarification though they don't know.
A fifth column is a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group, such as a nation, from within, to the aid of an external enemy.
The term originated with a 1936 radio address by Emilio Mola, an insurgent general during the 1936–39 Spanish Civil War. As his army approached Madrid, he broadcast a message that the four columns of his forces outside the city would be supported by a "fifth column" of his supporters inside the city, intent on undermining the Republican government from within (see Siege of Madrid).
I've always had a great affection for bag ladies, they save my life so many times as an infant.
I was soooo thinking that too.
