Today I are mostly learning that the fleg of Surrey looks like something you’d use to signal the end of a motor race in Ukraine:

Today I are learning that the current Canadian fleg was only adopted in 1965.  And none of the proposals for the said fleg had a BEAR on them.
It is widely believed in Poland that the red and white colours were chosen as a nod to the Polish diaspora in Canada. This probably says more about Poland than Canada.

That the forum search is context sensitive. e.g. "TailFin" returns many results, "tail fin" a few and "tailfin" 200 pages, most of which seem to have nothing whatsoever to do with the subject.

Today I are learning that the first milk CHOKLIT was developed in Dresden in 1839 and used donkey milk.

I reckon Hershey uses dogs' milk.

It might come out of dogs but I don't think it's milk.

Butyric acid in Hershey's innit? Back from ye olden days before chilled tankers. Apparently the USanians like the taste & smell of vom so much they decided to keep it.

Mmm, rancidity. It would explain a few things, I'd mostly put the taste down to Hershey's proximity to Three Mile Island.

I love that record.  The lyrics are so 80s, with the popular culture references to films and Memorex.  And Stevie Wonder giving it a musical shot in the arm halfway through, of course.
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.

Ha! Yeah, it's like that point where disco and funk started morphing into rap. Plus the self-improving, striving, moral message. Totally 80s-tastic.
