In my youth days, there was a choice of doobage around, coming from Lebanon that was yellowish in color and somewhat mild. It was what I associated in my mind then with Donovan's song, not knowing people would actually venture to smoke banana peels! 

Oh, well...
 
I don't think the toilet connotation was what the John Birch Society would have been referring to as an evil menace in 1967.  I imagine the majority of those "code words" had some drug-related meanings, (or at least the ultraconservative, ultra-paranoid members of the JBS thought so), so maybe there was some LSD- or pot-related meaning to "mellow yellow".  The other ones are puzzling as well.

I don't know either - the minds of our children are doomed!  Though I thought 'mellow yellow' was referring to the fruitless (pun intended) practice of smoking banana peels to get high.

Who says they are parallel? In 3 dimensions, they might not intersect, even if they are not parallel. Now imagine the different directions in 100s of dimensions.

How many do you need?  I'd like one other where I am 160 lbs, 5'10", dark auburn hair and makes $250,000 a year.  Oh and I skipper a J/99 on the weekends.

There you go. Why should Slavs be different than anyone else? Guess I'll have to find out via the Internet...

Hmmm.  Tough one.   

Despite all the alcohol and tobacco, Slavs are in relatively good shape and can actually squat.   Many North American adults would end up in hospital.


So?  Did I get the answer right?   

Take it away Doctor Wu.
