The number 39 is all of a sudden very shameful in Afghanistan

Is all of Afghanistan in the third grade? Do they not wear green on Thursdays either, for fear of getting pinched on the playground? 'Pimp' number 39 haunts Afghan car owners - World news - South and Central Asia - Afghanistan - msnbc.com
KABUL — Afghanistan's booming car sales industry has been thrown into chaos by a growing aversion to the number "39," which almost overnight has become an unlikely synonym for pimp and a mark of shame in this deeply conservative country. Drivers of cars with number plates containing 39, bought before the once-harmless double digits took on their new meaning, are mocked and taunted across Kabul. "Now even little kids say 'look, there goes the 39'. This car is a bad luck, I can't take my family out in it," said Mohammad Ashraf who works for a United Nations project. Other "39" owners flew into a rage or refused to speak when asked whether their car was a burden. No one is quite sure why the number became so contaminated so fast, but Kabul gossip blames a pimp in neighboring Iran, which shares a common language with much of Afghanistan. His flashy car had a 39 in its number plate, the story goes, so he was nicknamed "39" and the tag spread.

Colonel-in-Chief penguin has now been knighted

BBC NEWS | UK | Scotland | Edinburgh, East and Fife | Military penguin becomes a 'Sir'
A penguin who was previously made a Colonel-in-Chief of the Norwegian Army has been knighted at Edinburgh Zoo. Penguin Nils Olav has been an honorary member and mascot of the Norwegian King's Guard since 1972. Over the years, he has been promoted through the ranks after being adopted by Royal Guard who visited the zoo. During the ceremony, Nils had a sword dubbed on each side of his head, where his shoulders should be, to confirm his regimental knighthood. A crowd of several hundred people joined the 130 guardsmen at the zoo. A citation from King Harald the Fifth of Norway was read out, which described Nils as a penguin "in every way qualified to receive the honour and dignity of knighthood". The guardsmen come to see Nils every few years while they are in Edinburgh performing at the city's Military Tattoo.

This recipe for English PEas has the most amazing comments

Seriously. The BEST. There are 33 pages of these comments. It's days like this that I really love the internet.
"Can anyone tell me what I'm supposed to do with the paper from the butter wrap that's in the melted butter? Is this a garnish? Also, in the future can I use margarine? If so, do I wait until the plastic container melts completely before serving?" . . . I used my Slap Chop to combine this tasty recipe with a photoshopped picture of a nude Rachel Ray. I ate it, and for a week my poop smelled like butterscotch, and had glitter all over it. . . . Great recipe. I look forward to your recipe for Ice Water soon! . . .
