Does they dip their croissants in the coffee?
I googled "Napoleonic code" + croissant + café + dip and got only 1,850 results. This suggests that they don't.

Re: All Nations Representation Project

I think I might be being too obscure...these artists only seem to want rights without responsibilities. What "rights" does one actually utilize in practice?  Well, thinking about those artists and also the current legal status in much of the US: The right to get stoned and pontificate all...

Who's with me in declaring war on the Republic of Užupis? I expect casualties to be minimal. The pen is mightier than the sword, but no one said anything about badger-hair paint brushes.

Hehe. Actually, an embedded credit-card-style chip would have been a good idea for the CDC cards -- prevent forgeries.  :D

Re: Stupid question of the day

Where is Asia? COVID cases dramatically increasing in Asia, but where does that include?

[Whisper: Does it include The Orient? I get the vibe that “Oriental” is on the banned list and now comes under Asian. Which is ok for now.]
