Mars Company has been producing M&M Chocolate Candies since 1941. Various rumors have since been attached to different colors of the candy: the green ones are an aphrodisiac; if the last candy out of a bag is red, make a wish and it will come true; if the last candy out of a bag is yellow, you should call in sick and stay home; orange M&Ms are good luck, but brown ones are bad luck.

Compania Mars produce bomboane de ciocolata M&M din 1941. Zvonuri diverse au fost asociate diferitelor culori ale bomboanelor: cele verzi ar fi afrodisiace; daca ultima bomboana din punga este rosie, pune-ti o dorinta si ti se va indeplini; daca este una galbena, da telefon la birou, anunta ca nu te simti bine si stai acasa; cele portocalii aduc noroc, iar cele maron, ghinion. M&M/MARS spune ca aceste povesti sunt opera consumatorilor, iar compania nu are nici o legatura cu ele.

I ended up with an older woman at a club last night. She looked OK for a 61 year-old. In fact, she wasn’t too bad at all, and I found myself thinking that she probably had a really hot daughter.

Prior to the 2000 presidential election, there was no universally recognized color scheme to represent political parties in the US. Color-based schemes became widespread with the adoption of color television in the 1960s and nearly ubiquitous with the advent of color in newspapers. A three color scheme — red, white and blue, the colors of the U.S. flag — makes sense, and the third color, white, is useful in depicting maps showing states that are „undecided” in the polls and in election-night television coverage.

It was a joke some time ago … Do you know which is the similarity between engineers and dogs? They both have smart eyes but they are not able to express themselves 😀 Ok, this was the joke, now it comes the serious part: you are going to see an interesting machine which keeps your dog busy while you are not at home. Brilliant! I wish I could have one of that for Snoopy, my dog!

According to the website „Gender Specific Colors,” it would seem that assigning color to gender is mostly a 20th century trait. It would also seem that at one time, the color associations were reversed when color first came into use as a gender identifier. In fact, this reversal of what we consider „normal” was considered conventional, even in the early 20th century.

Barack Obama este de o saptamana Presedintele Americii, un presedinte primit cu multa simpatie de cea mai mare parte a planetei, a carui numire a semanat cu inscaunarea unui rege, este un tip educat si cu un discurs impecabil. Il inlocuieste pe George W. Bush sub a carui „domnie” administratia americana a avut multe de infruntat: au fost si reusite, dar si esecuri politice ale liderului de la Casa Alba, insa mai mult decat orice altceva seful administratiei este considerat un as al gafelor, verbale sau comportamentale. Au fost greseli monumentale, cuvinte inventate ce au primit numele de „bushisme”, a „colectionat” o multime de fraze lipsite de logica, ce au lasat loc la tot felul de interpretari sau care au starnit hazul tuturor.

When we set out to film, it was another New Orleans day. Once you get past the inevitable grime and heat, you feel a certain energy or “atmosphere”. Like a kid throwing himself into a mud fight. It’s a simple question. And the answers can lead us anywhere. So go ahead, ask yourself.
