That the word "Gorilla" comes from the Greek word meaning "savage hairy woman", although this claim is disputed, as it is also said that it could have come from a scientist seeing Branko's mum on the beach.

:lol: You've got to do better than that.

Branko’s ma has let ride her ‘fast car’ many times. For that I am privileged.

Mad, and not at all surprising, that Branky is rating his own mother on the reviews from the general public.

Hypocrisy too as he is a frequenter of leaving fake negative reviews of soap companies on Trust Pilot.

Mad that neither your brain nor height (5ft 2.75”) has improved since then.

If you lose 10lb in weight, 1.5lbs is lost through water and you breathe out the rest as carbon dioxide, I always thought you s*** it out.

And it was just down to naming anyway!

Now a new study suggests resurrecting Brontosaurus. It turns out the original Apatosaurus and Brontosaurus fossils appear different enough to belong to separate groups after all. "Generally, Brontosaurus can be distinguished from Apatosaurus most easily by its neck, which is higher and less wide," says lead study author Emanuel Tschopp, a vertebrate paleontologist at the New University of Lisbon in Portugal. "So although both are very massive and robust animals, Apatosaurus is even more extreme than Brontosaurus."

A rampant pandemic and violent right wing insurrectionists storming the American capitol didn't do it but we're damned if they start f***ing with dinosaur names :lol:

They can keep it.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

:lol: no where. It literally has to be from Kentucky, among a few other requisites (51% corn, as an example), to be called bourbon.

Otherwise it’s just whiskey.

No, it has to be produced in the United States to be called Bourbon. It's a misconception that it has to be made in Kentucky, hence why only 95% is made there.

The 95% number has been largely disputed as well.
