Only the Chinese Could get away with this!

Leave it to the Chinese to remove the summit of Mount Everest and take it around the world as a touring exhibit!

See: The Tour of Mount Everest story here. You know, if some American tried that, the Chinese government would be up-in-arms about it!!

Know someone with a Domineering Spouse?

In this RARE bit of British Music Hall footage Gus Elen sings a song he made famous about 1891: "It's a Great Big Shame!" About a husband who has to given up the free lifestyle he enjoyed before marriage and the frustration experienced by his friends when they want him to go out for just a few beers.

Now you probably wondering, what does this have to do with the Navy and submarines?

...Well, I'll tell you, quite a bit! But I better save it for a later post because my wife just walked in!

Powerful! Earthy! It's Carmina Burana - O fortuna! by Carl Orff

The lyric translation would be considered vulgar and rude, very lusty even today!
...so I presented it here in Latin for your amusement and confusement!
