Those cigarettes brought back a memory.
I used to smoke. Many years ago when I left Alaska I bought a pack of Canadian cigarettes. I'm sure that wasn't the brand, but if it had been the would have been aptly named.

Most women manage that with just two feet

I'd rather choose "Die Sieben Millionen Dollar Frau" than the 50 foot woman...

About a million years ago I was at an Emerson, Lake and Palmer concert in the Seattle Center Coliseum. Along with the usual passing around of *ahem* illicit "cigarettes" the guy sitting next to me offered a non filtered cigarette. Since I smoked then I accepted, and lit one up.

I about choked to death! It was the nastiest tasting cigarette I had ever had.

As he was laughing the guy showed me the pack.

It was exactly like the one in the picture I posted. The dude told me he had recently returned from a trip to Mexico and brought them back with him. We talked about it some and he said he wasn't sure if they were really made from horse manure, or just really dry and crappy tobacco.

Oh, and I have had smokes from Canada. For some reason they do have a stronger and more harsh flavor.

Yep, "The Bionic Woman" in English - which is nowhere as cool as the German translation (or "translation").

I wonder how many shoes she's got...

No idea on how many shoes she had ... but, I bet that even those Goodyear soles did not last too long ...

Actually usually more than once during a season she'd take a sprint and end up with a broken shoe. Apparently those super sprints were heck on heels...

If it were a K-9 it would be a dog unit in an emergency force, but a K-3? Your guess is as good as mine?

KO=, knock out
OK = it's all good
For some reason K is also a strike out, so if you see K-3 at a baseball game hanging from the upper deck it means, the pitcher has 3 strike outs on the day.

Maybe that's it. Although I think there's something about hociR and Tokyo, bacon cheese and beer. At least that's my impression reading the thread.
