I can add two to your list, although I'm a bit embarrassed at what sprang to mind for 2.

2 Live Crew

Why embarrassed? I thought of it, too.

So just eight and ten, then.

This is my husband's definition. Trash is relatively clean. Garbage's not.

I heard of a band called Fingers Eleven. Is it real? (the mention was in a fanfic story).

Has anyone ever heard of an online store called Accessories Store? They're offering a Roomba 880 for what seems like almost a too good to be true price. Even what they list as the regular price is lower than the MSRP of the cheaper model Roomba. Their explanation for the low price is

Quote:
To celebrate our Store Opening, we are offering the first 10 orders at only $179.99. After 10 orders we will sell at the fixed price of $359.99. Quickly order now to get your best deal!
which conveniently offers an explanation of why I've never heard of this store. I can't tell if they're a legitimate new online store or a very well done scam.

Looking around the site a little more, there are also "McAfee Secure" banners plastered everywhere. Almost as if they're trying a little too hard to reassure people that they're legit.

ETA: And after leaving and coming back a few hours later the 2 that they supposedly still had left in stock haven't sold. You'd think they'd sell fast at that price.

The domain name was registered less than 2 weeks ago. Even if it was a new store, a legit online store would have registered their domain longer ago than that.

Does anyone know whether "Tili Tili Bom" is an actual Russian lullaby? If so, the fact the Russians consider that song to be something that will help your little one go to sleep, explains so much about that country. Though the whole living in a place that considers any cold not severe enough to summon legions of white walkers to be shorts weather.

I have several Russian friends, I can check with them.

I'm not sure what your implications are about people from cold climates. Do you think people from colder parts of the world have something inherently wrong with them?

Sorry, I meant the comment tongue thoroughly in cheek. I suppose I should have put a smilie or something. If it's any consolation, I probably shouldn't judge Russia for freaky weather, given that I live smackdab in the middle of Tornado Alley. You'd think if something was called Tornado Alley, that would be a good argument for Plan GTFO and yet...tell you what, why don't we just indulge in the other Internet pastime of going, "WTF, Australia?!"
