John, the first car I ever drove was a 1948 Packard, in 1964. My parents owned 2 cars at the time - that and a 1952 Nash Rambler. Both companies are gone now, of course, although you could argue that Nash survived since it merged with Hudson to form AMC, which was later acquired by Chrysler.

That was back in the days before government bailouts, of course, so it was survival of the corporate fittest.

John - not urinal-related, but if you've ever listened to Messiah (or any similar choral music from the Baroque era, you'll be aware of how phrases are repeated (sung) over and over. I can't think of Messiah without thinking about how the phrase "We like sheep have gone astray" is reduced to "we like sheep" and repeated for several minutes. https://youtu.be/sxc94nL5avY

John, you might find this of interest - the line in Conan the Barbarian about what is best in life ("To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women") is adapted from a quotation by Genghis Khan, "The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses, and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters." http://vaviper.blogspot.com/2014/08/happy-787th-birthday-genghis-khan.html The musical version of Conan, one of my favorite things ever, is also at that line.
