C'mon, I just want to show constant thinker, at least, that actually there is a city in Italy called like 'a lunch meat' and where it is.

Just for fun.  :D

Yes, I know.  :D
However, in Italy, we call it 'Mortadella', which is also the nickname (not only among his opponents) of our new prime minister, who actually is from Bologna.

I remember buying "Mortadella" at my grocery store...and I keep thinking, "This stuff looks and tastes a lot like bologna".  Now I know why :P

And looking at the sites that refer people to us...we get quite a few (more than I expected) hits from people looking for DRUGS lol...and I won't even ask me why we rank #6 in google when you type "Synthesis of Cocaine".

And this is the best one.

Go to Yahoo! and type in funny math quotes . we're #1 ! hahahahaha

At least we don't rank number 1 for "Jessica rabbit porn" anymore, that was kind of annoying.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

By the way, I just noticed that I appear in Feldkirchen which is pretty far away from Feldkirch (where I actually live... :P )
Everybody loves Carynthia  ;D

I appear in Kent?
