Happy birthday!  :)

Thanks! :) Not raising Cthulhu today, though. Just showing off what I've got myself:

From left to right: Syriac Orthodox Patriarch Mor Ignatius Yaqub (Jacob) III, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, Coptic Orthodox Pope Kyrillos (Cyril) VI, and the late HIM Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia.



I really like this photo. Shame about the poor quality, though.

I must admit that when NASA posted the pic on Facebook they did say it was a guy getting a haircut. Still... my description seems more interesting  :angel: I guess haircuts in space have a coolness factor as well though.

It would be nice to have a redhead of the day thread in order to get to what is really important and worthwhile quickly.

Here, have at the redhead of the century, Simone Simons.



Nice.

I prefer redheads with naturally curly hair. If only they weren't so stuck up.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I agree with you. Somali is spoken more than Hmong in Minnesota. And Vietnamese in Texas? Really:o

Though Arabic in Michigan is spot on.

I do not know about a site with specific stats, but the first map may be inaccurate in part, and I suspect the second map is a troll map, and at the very least is completely inaccurate.
