It’s Just a Ride points to this tear jerker of a story. Father and his autistic son are swept out to sea by a rip current. They’re in the water overnight and get separated. They can’t see each other, so Dad tries movie lines for his son to respond to. “To infinity,” cries dad. And faintly in the distance, he hears the shouted response: “And beyond!” Read the story.
Some high brow Italian cultural group wants to ban English words and phrases from the Italian language. When Renaissance age pedants tried to maintain the “purity” of Latin by purging foreign grammar and vocabulary in the 15th Century, they succeeded in killing the language. In the meantime, see this Italian guide to bike parts, or see the Italian-English bike dictionary. There’s another similar dictionary out on SmartEtailing bike shop websites, but I can’t find it at the moment.
