I know a relative who "sings" out loud while yawning (and he yawns a lot). That gets me on my nerves.

It took a heartfelt display of career reflection and nostalgic chants of "M-V-P" for Dirk Nowitzki to finally say aloud what the basketball world has assumed all season.

"As you might expect," Nowitzki told the sold-out crowd at American Airlines Center, "this was my last home game.

IT’S THE WORLD’S LEADING MANUFACTURER OF FALSE TEETH.

Based in the mini-metropolis of Schaan, a company called Ivoclar Vivadent leads the world in false teeth manufacturing, accounting for 20 percent of the total sales worldwide. The company is responsible for the production of 60 million sets every year, in more than 10,000 different models, thanks in part to a strong relationship with Bollywood dentists.Drool

I first thought a male pale suit typical of the 70's in France:
- synthetic fabric;
- flared trousers;
- long point collar;
- relatively high heels.
As I see it, it was full of fun (I was born in 1970). I didn't really like the synthetic fabric then.

The Divine Comedy - "Eric The Gardener"
https://youtu.be/FV-kiCEYKtU

(Is it possible to display a Youtube video on TFD? If so, how?)

♫♪ Julius Caesar came, saw, conquered, went away
'Cause it rained here all the time
Too many sniffs and colds
Got up his Roman nose
So he left it all behind for Eric the gardener to find
Eric the gardener
Eric the gardener will find Eric the gardener

Julius Caesar knew that when his life was through
Something of him would stay behind
Not in a Roman tomb or an Italian womb
But buried deep in English slime
For Eric the gardener to find
Eric the gardener
Eric the gardener will find Eric the gardener

Julius Caesar sleeps soundly beneath your feet
With the rest of humankind
Dig deep and dig some more
Dig to the planet's core
Dig 'til you've gone out of your mind
But all you will ever find is Eric the gardener
All you can ever hope to find is Eric the gardener ♫♪

On April 1 and 2, 2009, the Hubble Space Telescope photographed a group of galaxies called Arp 274 , also known as NGC 5679, a system of three galaxies that appears to be partially overlapping in the image, although they may be at somewhat different distances. The spiral shapes of two of these galaxies appear mostly intact. The third galaxy at far left is more compact, but shows evidence of star formation.

Megazostrodon is an extinct Mammaliaform that is widely accepted as being one of the first mammals and which appeared in the fossil record approximately 200 million years ago. It did have some non-mammalian characteristics: the first two vertebrae (atlas and axis) were still unfused as in cynodonts, and it only had three sacral vertebrae instead of the usual mammalian five. An interclavicle is also present, another primitive trait still visible in monotremes. However, these were deemed sufficiently minor to warrant the analysis that this animal probably represents the final stage of the transition between cynodonts and true mammals.

The Fettecke (Ger: "Fat Corner") was an abstract work of art from the German artist Joseph Beuys. On April 28, 1982, Beuys placed five kilograms of butter in a corner of his art room about two meters below the ceiling in the main building of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf Academy of Art). His motivation for the artwork came from the anticipation of Lama Sogyal Rinpoche, whom Beuys had invited on behalf of the Dalai Lama in Europe, and a seminar of the Free International University. In the Period that followed, the plastic served as "a constant demonstration object."

The end of the Fettecke
In 1986, a custodian in the Art Academy of Düsseldorf cleaned up the butter about nine months after Beuys' death. Johannes Stuettgen claimed ownership of the art piece, as Beuys had said "Johannes, I'm finally making your Fettecke" at the time of its creation.

Additionally:

Under the new system, introduced in January 2018, every country in the world is now ranked 1 to 4.

No. 1 advises travelers to take normal precautions. No. 2 encourages increased caution. No. 3 urges travelers to reconsider a trip. And No. 4 recommends against travel.

Specific threats are now labeled by letter. C is for crime, T for terrorism, U for civil unrest, H for health risks, N for natural disasters, E for time-limited events such as elections or sporting events, and O for other.

The countries with the No. 4 warning and the codes of their specific threats are:

Afghanistan, C, T, U, O
Central African Republic, C, U
Iraq, T, O
Libya, C, T, U, O
Mali, C, T
North Korea, O
Somalia, C, T, O
South Sudan, C, O
