Ooops! [blush]

Thanks to Joe, we are now enlightened!

------------------
"I just wanted to point out an inaccuracy in the latest comic (June 2, 2010), which unfortunately destroys your punchline.

It is a common misconception in the West that Buddha was fat. This is not true. Buddha always followed the Middle Path (no extremes).

The so-called 'Fat Buddha' is actually Budai, an eccentric Chinese Zen monk who lived during the Later Liang Dynasty (907–923 CE) of China.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budai

To confound matters further, in Thailand, Budai is sometimes confused with another similar monk widely respected in Thailand, Phra Sangkajai or Sangkachai."

/me slaps his Budai belly.

Thanks Joe!

Ha ha, and this from Paolo...

------------------
I know this probably bypassed you, but to an italian panel 2 of the strip is quite unwillingly amusing. Not only it makes no sense Leonardo addressing the lady "Mona" (name is Lisa, actually, and Mona stands for "Madam" in ancient Florentine) but in modern jargon "mona" is local for "moron" (and literally means "cunt").

Just thought i'd mention. Keep it good.

----------------------

Like we showed in the comic, she was a real c*** for hogging that iPad!

Should I tell you Isaac Newton was left handed? [Razz]

Leonardo da Vinci didn't speak English.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
