I think we're only about 4.7 degrees away from someone who actually slept with a Beatle.

Too bad of you to choose this day to point your thoughts out. Something to consider - perhaps a thread re the anniversary of his murder wasn't the time or place.
It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

What an icon of history she was. I wish she'd been our prime minister.

I read that and I thought: Who the heck is Matto Grosso? I know some stuff. I mean, I know who Hayley Westenra is for cripes sake, but this Mr Grosso? So I google it and it's the third largest state in Brazil. Brazil has states? Matto is made of limestone? So who created the Simpsons? Oh right, Groening.

I was talking with a Brazillian earlier in the year and she said some sentence that included the name of the Brazillian prime minister/ president. Of course, I haven't a clue what the chaps name was or even is now, assuming it even is a chap. Yet she spoke as if this person should be universally known.

NOW... I am not defending GuyInTaiwan for wading in with his muddy boots and generally pissing the populace off with his ill timed observation, but there is something to be said for the phenomenon of thinking something is more popular or prevalent than is the reality. I'm not all that sure the whole world knows who Harry Redknapp is, but to me he is a God. Anyway... the phenomenon is real, it doesn't apply to John Lennon as EVERYONE knows who he is, and it's inappropriate to raise this issue in such a stick-in-the-eye way in a thread where people want to show him some reverence.

You the man Johnny Lennon. Wherever you are, enjoy! :)
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.
