No idea bro. I didn't even see that till you mentioned it.
I'd be afraid to ask as this was a college dorm kinda street and let's just say the hippie thing didn't go out of style yet.

Neither did the 80's. I keep seeing Cyndi Lauper walking around town.




I'm in Swansea (sp?) Wales right now and it's AWESOME! What beautiful countryside!!!!

Föckinghausen is a locality in the municipality Schmallenberg in the district Hochsauerlandkreis in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

Thanks, Wiki!



"Overige Bustemmingen" over the "prijs garantie" strangley enough translates through bablefish as:

"Remaining bus whining minus genes"


wtf does THAT mean?
