    Clearly he meant "I'm from a part of South America which is very close to, but not actually within, Brazil". HTH.

    P.S. Thanks, now I have the John Belushi sketch stuck in my head, this time with a fake Spanish accent. "!KEE AIR OH UN OH CHEESEBURGER CHEESEBURGER!"

    Don't feel too bad, someone earlier mentioned Japan and now I am seeing him behind the counter of a greasy spoon in a samauri outfit yelling "KOKU JA NAI!! PE-PU-SI DESU!" (No Coke, Pepsi)

    That is absolutely the coolest (pun intended) image I have seen in recent days. Immediately reminiscent of opening the ark in the Indiana Jones movie, it also calls to mind a far older, but no less strikingly ominous image of light framing darkness.

    Who besides me remembers Creepy comic books? Frazetta is the man!

    Sorry, but that wasn't the chip that started it all. Time for a history lesson from the old one. That chip was first used commercially in the Compaq luggables. The IBM PC used the 8088 chip. This was an extension to the 8086-2 that restricted the internal bus speed to match the external. If you're scratching your head as to why IBM would use a lesser chip that was actually more expensive than the more capable 8086-2, a lot of us did that. Never did figure it out.

    The 8088 was internally a 16 bit chip like the 8086 but externally worked like an 8 bit chip. This allowed use of cheaper existing 8-bit hardware components. The first PCs cost $3000 and came with 64k of ram and a floppy drive.

    quite funny to see the dutch NEE/NEE and NEE/JA stickers! These stickers were an effort of the dutch government to reduce the amount of unwanted mail.

  • Alex Garner (unregistered) in reply to Ricky Fine

    That's interesting, because I checked around before I sent it, as I remember my first PC clone had an 8088. I never owned a genuine IBM, although my friend did. It would seem the references I used are not as accurate as they should be!

    Oh well. I knew it would come in handy one day, but I didn't realise what for!

    The Church Brew Works is in Pittsburgh. When the Catholic Church was losing money, it closed down and was auctioned off. The buyers turned it into a brewery/restaurant. A bunch of nuns showed up outside picketing the desecration of a church.

    I was just there this summer, at a political rally. How funny to see it on wtf, especially next to all the Australian stuff. There's a story there somewhere.

    It's weird, 'cause even here in Brazil some teachers insist in Portuguese being similiar to Spanish.

    I Don't think so, and for real i didn't get the sarcasm on the: "some kind of spanish", it's pretty rare some people understanding that we speak PORTUGUESE over here.

    In portuguese: É diferente pra caramba de qualquer espanhol que vocês irão ver na terra.

    I bet you think Wien is some small town in Austria, right? That's why you printed it as Wien, rather than Vienna, which is what most English-speaking people would call it. Making USAians look as ignorant as they are.

    Of course, they spoke some kind of Spanish, so I repeated myself a few times very loudly and slowly. I'm pretty sure those burgers will be on their way soon.
    Um, you do realize they speak Portugese, not Spanish, in Brazil, right? Thanks for making us USAians look even more ignorant than we usually do.

    You're right, I've never heard of these sh*tholes, and wouldn't know how to pronounce them. So what? The point is, Vienna is the capital city of Austria (that's in Europe, in case you didn't know). It's quite a big city, and we even have our own name for it in English, so calling it "Wien" is either pretentious or ignorant. When Natchitoches becomes famous for its art, music, opera, literature, boulevards, dynamic financial market and coffee shops, I'll be sure to look it up...

    I know where Austria is. I went to see the Vienna Boys Choir last night in Fort Worth (that's close to Natchitoches, in case you didn't know).

    It's about the size of Natchitoches.

    Actually, it is the result of an organic evolution of Vulgar Latin. This means it is related to, but not "some kind of", other romantic languages, including spanish, italian and french.

    Also, english is not some kind of american.

    Oh right. So Nacho city has a population of 1.6 million, has it? No. I don't think so. More like 15,000. Now, I obviously have no problem with that, delighted for the place. But I've never heard of it before, and probably never will again. Unless the Nacho Boys Choir suddenly makes it big. Oh and the Christmas festival sounds truly awful. See, I did look it up. Oh and I'm not from Vienna btw, in case you thought I was. So you can still go there and be nice to Austrians. Oh but you don't know where it is or what it's called. And you probably haven't got a passport. Never mind, they won't miss you.

    Just to help place one item of the small pile of random souvenirs. The Stickers with two times the orange 'NEE' on it are used to stop spam through mail. The first 'NEE' is to say no to folders, the second is to say no to free newspapers. Put it on your mailbox, It works in the Netherlands. :)
