As an European, we think it's hilarious when you think of anything in the 1800s as ancient history.

My first job was for a company founded 1288, and my town still has __wooden__ houses from the 1100s.

While UV photography is interesting, birds vision is even MORE interesting than this - they see colours we can't even imagine. Where we have three base colours (red, green, blue, as seen in HTML colour) - they have four. They are tetrachromatic.
So instead of our black, red, green, yellow, blue, purple, cyan and white corners, they have 16 corner colours. We're colourblind compared to them.

I usually just go to IKEA to do the impulse buying anyway, but quality has lowered to the point I don't really want much stuff from them.

Also beware, most other stores including your supermarket also does this.

Don't all modern cars have start-stop function? Ie, they will do this automatically. Including starting the motor to run the AC when it's needed. My car did the last 6 years... (2012 model)
It doesn't save super much, it's in the range of 0-2 percent if I recall correct.

We don't get paid for the first day. The following days we get paid 80% of normal (unless we have extra insurance); staying home with sick small kids gives money from and including the first day though.

In many jobs it's also ok to work from home now and then for various reasons including stuff like "I'm waiting for a package from UPS" or "I'm watching the handyman redecorating my livingroom". It's pretty relaxed.

I don't agree with his style of walking. Most that do any form of barefoot martial art wouldn't agree - he forget to use the knees, to bend the knees. I've seen demonstrations of medieval swordfighting that also forgets to bend the knees. It looks hilariously awkward.

Compare his style:
To people studying techniques like Lichtenauer:

Pretty sure ballet dancers also bend the knees more:
look how much she bends her rear knee.

I do this. It's quite fun. It's very interesting to draw parallels between 13th century manuscripts and east-asian martial arts as well. The biggest difference between a longsword and swords like the japanese katana is that katanas only (well, mostly) do cuts, while the longsword do both cuts and strikes. The longswords are usually called 1½-handers, because you have one hand firmly and one hand flexible (loose). They are fascinatingly light - I have a huge one, and it's only 2kg - and balanced just above the handle. (From the great czech swordsmith Pavel Moc.)

Why not just add "American-" to them if that's a problem? "American Roquefort". Done.
You could simplify the spelling while you're on it. "American Rockfort"... ;)

Looking in Swedish, I got some horrible results:

kvinnan ska tiga i församlingen (the woman should be silent in church)
kvinnan ska behaga mannen (the woman should please the man)
kvinnan ska underordna sig mannen (the woman should be subservient to men)
kvinnan ska stå i köket (women should stay in the kitchen)

I didn't expect that. It certainly doesn't represent many people's opinions, as far as I know.

but some results poke out:

kvinnor ska stå i köket (women should stay in the kitchen)
kvinnor ska lyda (women should obey)
kvinnor ska ha högre lön (women should have higher salaries)
kvinnor ska inte köra bil (women shouldn't drive)

and looking in english some of them were quite unexpected:

men should always pray
men should not get married
men should wear makeup
men should be what they seem

boys should be boys
boys should know
boys should wear bras
boys should wear dresses

...but why would you use this as search phrases?
