Dido. As in Queen of Carthage.

Long and long and long ago, my children, before the Internet became a haven for porn, there was a free email-based erotica server. If you sent an appropriately formatted email to louvre at dido dot fa dot indiana dot edu, you'd get back a story that had been posted to the Usenet group rec.arts.erotica. And all was well... until the postmaster at indiana.edu contacted the archive maintainer, and pointed out to him the large number of undeliverable emails that were coming in addressed to louvre at dildo dot fa dot indiana dot edu!

I don't think these addresses work any more, but I've obfuscated them anyhow. Why give the indiana.edu sysadmins even more spam to deal with? By the way, we're talking Indiana University here, not to be confused with Indiana University of Pennsylvania, so called because it's in a town with the unlikely name of Indiana, Pennsylvania (Jimmy Stewart was born there).

Growing up in Pennsylvania, when my high school / college girlfriend told people about her decision to go to IU, everyone would assume she was talking about IUP. "There's one in Indiana?" people would say. There always seemed to be lots of IUP graduates around (including both of my parents), because it had a large education program.

Both parents with O+ blood gave birth to 3 kids with B+ blood. Doctor told us that one of the parents (mother) is para-bombay with hidden B gene. What does it mean? Her parents are A+.
