Goose egg, actually, which led to this brilliant comment on there, "I forgot to measure the yolk, but it's approximately the same size as a new-born goose." Heh!

Kirk, my former stepfather is from Portugal. His friend was the famous Fado singer Amalia. I was familiar with some terms used to express longing like "saudade" but had never seen a good link like this to describe it better. I guess some of the works I've posted at blender are somewhat in this vein, but hadn't put a descriptive word like this to them before now. Thanks for this link ......

I'm curious about which games were the first to use certain turns of phrase, like "GAME OVER", or when 1UP stopped meaning Player 1 and started meaning Extra Life.

If I had a time machine, I would have traveled back to whenever I had to, and had the machine instead say "GOOD DAY, SIR."

Hmm. I'm thinking Super Mario Brothers for "1up" but really I have no idea. I was thinking it would fit nicely in an 8-bit-side sprite, but no, not really, if 1 needs 1 pixel, U and P need 3 each, and a space between each letter.
