Well If I am back in Zimbabwe or South Africa, I mean a traffic light.

After my trip back home today, I was reminded of another Southern African phrase: a Monkey's Wedding. This expression describes the condition of simultaneous sunshine and rain. My Argentinean friend told me that the equivalent expression in Spanish is a "Monk's Wedding". If true, that is a remarkable coincidence.

In addition to the primate festivitiy there were dual rainbows. I have never seen that.

@mhrackin: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," NOT the beheld! Also nor the behind.

My wife says my behind is one of my best features...

Hang on! I always took that as a complement, but now I come to think about it... LOL

@david: My guess is those are special pants to wear while browsing (the web?).

@max: re "admiring stares": I believe the saying is "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," NOT the beheld! Also nor the behind.

@r3son8trbluz: "In addition to being great to play with oneself" [...] sometimes it isn't.

Don't leave us hanging -- please provide examples :-)

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
