... popular to the extent as of among russian prisoners, who brew from it so called "tchifir" - extremely concentrated and hence extremely strong tea. Actually it is a kind of (soft) addiction and the tchifirists are true tea-addicts.

Why "chile" instead of "child"? Is it a kind of slang?

For the hundredth time I'm listening to **Blackstone Legacy** album (1971) by Afro-American jazz trumpeter Woody Shaw (1944-1989) and I like it exclusively. What kind of music I **don't** like is any sentimental music, so called "smooth" jazz, swing (in the 21st century it sounds too moth-eaten), 99.999% of rock music (excl. **The Rolling Stones** and smth like **The Sex Pistols** and **The Prodigy** and **The Chemical Brothers**). Also I don't like classical music (Boethoven, Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi ("The Red Pope") etc).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizophrenia_and_smoking > Studies across 20 countries show a strong association between schizophrenia and smoking.[1] For example, in the United States, 80% or more of schizophrenics smoke, compared to 20% of the general population in 2006.[2] > Though it is well established that smoking is more prevalent among schizophrenics than the general population as well as those with other psychiatric diagnoses, there is currently no definitive explanation for this difference.[3] Many social, psychological, and biological explanations have been proposed, but today research focuses on neurobiology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-tobacco_movement_in_Nazi_Germany > Adolf Hitler was a heavy smoker in his early life — he used to smoke 25 to 40 cigarettes daily — but gave up the habit, concluding that it was a waste of money. In later years, Hitler viewed smoking as "decadent" and "the wrath of the Red Man against the White Man, vengeance for having been given hard liquor", lamenting that "so many excellent men have been lost to tobacco poisoning". He was unhappy because both Eva Braun and Martin Bormann were smokers and was concerned over Hermann Göring's continued smoking in public places. He was angered …

She guesses that the eunuchs were smaller and less muscular, with lower levels of cancer and heart disease.

Mine is Vitali. I always disliked it, but now I'd say: I love it. I hate names Sergei, Igor, Alexandre and many other (name Ivan in Russia is very very rare, cause it is associated with "Ivan the fool" - a personage from Russian fairy tales). I never met name "Vitali" in Russian literature of the 19th century. After 1917 it got into fashion for several decades, then it faded away. Now pop names here is: Maxim, Denis, Kristina, Darya, phhhhhhhhh... Names Nadezhda, Luyobov', Zoya, Maria, Marina (my beloved female name) totally disappeared

Only very recently (3-4 months back) I got to know that... Americans were on the Moon **several** times. I always thought their 69' lunar expedition was an unique single space event. Soviet mass-media did not report anything about American lunar expeditions of 70's. They kept silence, a bit like Sicilian "omerta" swear.

It's the title of a composition by American jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter (b.1933/08/25). But what is this word per se? I googled it - no avail... all links point to the composition.
