Vines Across The Waters
A topic for vines that don't have parts on the North American continent.
what the Borg said..."
Yes it is, Mary. At least in the German versions. Retranslated it is "Resistance is aimless". And as I never saw some originals, I stayed with the German. After all the burros and Wurst .. not to mention that to me the German sounds stronger/more ... borgy.
What's the original sentence ?
Here are some snail facts
Snails usually travel in irregular paths, often traveling in a circle.
Snails reply mainly on their sense of touch and smell when finding food because they have very poor eyesight.
Snails cannot hear.
The fastest snails are the speckled garden snails which can move up to 55 yards per hour compared 23 inches per hour of most other land snails.
Garden snails hibernate during the winter and live on their stored fat.
Not very well suited for the postal service then:...maybe the snails don't actually carry the mail themselves, but are secretly in charge of the burros, riding them across the mountains
sounds like Bob's enjoying life alone with his cigars..
what the Borg said...
Bob, you wrote "The Burros here are being trained in self defence, in case anyone tries to eat them". In response I could reply "Das ist mir Wurst" (= I don't give a ... dime) but instead I would like to know, whether you have ever witnessed when somebody tries to keep a hungry diabetic (let's say with a low blood sugar rate) away from food ? No matter if in self defense or for other good reasons. Well, as the Borg use to say "Widerstand ist zwecklos !"
And I am not sure how much times a snail can carry it's own weight, but as long as they make it from Mike's to my place in a week, they don't seem to have problems. Aside the fact that, at least over here in Germany, nobody forces snails to pick up jobs.
And let me add that I am prepared, after ordering 400 more blanks, although a lot of these will be used for the 17 DVDs the other local eurotrader gave me yesterday.
Kraut, Kraut, Kraut ... and more Kraut.
Maybe the burro will perform some unholy rolling on it,
so the Kraut will taste a bit like meat:+)
Posted to Andre today by conventional means! Burros worried about being turned into Wurst.
