An echo of a silhouette
Bare feet covered with wet
Puddle dance
Mute romance

I knew I was of German, Irish, Polish, and Russian descent since I was young. After doing some more research on my family history I found out I may also be of English, French, Dutch, and Jewish descent also! I would have never guessed!

one of the best lyrics ever : "everybody needs a bosom for a pillow" (from Brimful of Asha by Cornershop)

from the days that smoking was allowed in pubs, this notice in the toilets :

"don't leave cigarette butts in the urinals - after all, we don't piss in your ashtray"

Playing chess in the pub ... My opponent is drunker than I am and playing an open attacking game. I'm sniping his pawns and winning ;)

There's nothing like experiencing 3 out of 4 of life's most stressful events all at once. Pressure turns coal into diamonds... or just dust if mishandled.

I have done some research on my last name origin an I found out my last name is of English, German, Dutch, and Jewish origin. I know I am German, Irish, Polish, and Russian but I do not know if the term name origin implies family descent. Do you guys happen to know if the term name origin implies family descent?

Because he's from Florida. That's all you need to know.

Check out the reddit for Florida Man: https://www.reddit.com/r/FloridaMan/
