Re: 1190: "Time"

The word 'pope' is related is from the Greek 'papas' (originally meaning 'father'. See also 'papa'). So a female pope should be a mope. Or rather, a mome. I'm guessing the Greek for mother is something like "mammas" and not "mapas", so it'd be mome rather than mope, though you g...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Please take a moment to find a more tranquil state of mind before viewing. Link to video here, (frames 0—490 so far). FABULOUS! Seconded...! Oh, yes.. http://im...
