I'm not sure about the value of the brand name, but the most recognized symbol in the world is the Golden Arches of McD's. Not the cross of the Catholic church.

Also, along the lines of the oak tree needing to hit 50 before it can have little acorns: I took a forest guided tour in Finland, and learned that there are beneficial bugs that can't exist if there isn't wood from 100-year old trees that have been dead for over 100 years. The Finns no longer clear dead wood from the forest.

I've done the paper folding one. It's true.

A true irony there. Widdershynnes is to be expected, then again it all depends where you're standing, donut?

The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer.

So did the first ' Marlboro Man. '...


As did Tex Williams, singer of "Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette", a tune critical of smokers not for reasons of health but of social interaction -kind of the cell phone of its day.
