If you’re about to get on a plane, what should you do--and avoid doing--to assure a safe flight? What does it mean if you see an ambulance zoom by? And is a black cat always unlucky? Though we may say we don’t believe in superstitions, they have an unmistakable power...and to be on the safe side, most of us secretly knock wood, don’t walk under ladders, and avoid opening that umbrella indoors. Broken up into categories such as animals, astrology, dreams, and flowers, this fascinating dictionary will alert you to thousands of beliefs, omens, and proverbs that you may never have known. Here’s just a few: * A dog hiding under a table means a storm is brewing. * To see an image of your future spouse, eat a whole salted herring in three mouthfuls, go to bed without a drink, and say nothing. * Scatter ashes over the roof of a house to protect it against lightning. * Bringing an axe into the home presages death. * When the aurora borealis--the colored lights that flash in the northern sky--appear, spirits are cavorting in heaven and a war is imminent. * Eating peanuts before an auto race brings bad luck. Among the many other subjects: clothing, days of the year, food, gemstones, herbs, hobbies,illness and medicine, marriage numbers, plants and trees, professions, and the weather.
Ewan McGregor und sein Kumpel Charley Boorman wollen es noch einmal wissen: Nach ihrem abenteuerlichen Trip rund um die Welt geht es dieses Mal vom nördlichsten Punkt Großbritanniens, dem kleinen Nest John O’Groats in den schottischen Highlands, südwärts bis nach Kapstadt in Südafrika. Das ganz große Abenteuer beginnt, als die beiden die gepflegten Teerstraßen Europas hinter sich lassen. In Afrika erwarten sie– neben der überwältigenden Gastfreundschaft der Einheimischen– Sandstürme (Libyen), üble Offroadpisten (Kenia), Schlammschlachten (Äthiopien) und ein rasender Elefant, der McGregor nach dem Leben trachtet (Botswana). Ein weiteres Roadmovie voller Risiken, Überraschungen und unvergesslicher Begegnungen.
What exactly needs to be said in solicitation copy for the VERY LAST VOLUME OF LONE WOLF AND CUB? It's the moment you've all been waiting years and years to read. It's the end of the long path the ronin father and son have been on since the boy's birth. Through unimaginable violence and bad weather, across hundreds of miles of blood-soaked roadbeds, over years of tragedy and anguish, to this final still-epic story, Itto and Daigoro have kept us holding on to what little hope exists in a world where honor is all but forgotten and warriors are obsolete. It's a bloody battle all the way to the finish, with dramatic twists and turns right up to the final page. Stay with us as we conclude the translation of what will always be considered one of the finest examples of comic-book mastery ever created, Lone Wolf and Cub. This volume contains the following stories: Corpse Tree Flute and Wave The Lotus Throne Empty Stirrups Arms
Ein Besuch der Apnoe-Weltmeisterschaft wird für James Nestor zum Beginn eines persönlichen Abenteuers: Fasziniert von der Kompromisslosigkeit dieses Sports, erlernt er selbst das Freitauchen. Und fortan zieht es ihn immer tiefer in die verborgene Welt der Ozeane hinab: Er besucht eine Forschungsstation 20 Meter unter der Meeresoberfläche, trifft renommierten Meeresbiologen bei ihrer Arbeit, schwimmt mit Walen und geht im U-Boot auf Tauchstation. Dabei entdeckt er einen unfassbar reichen Lebensraum, mit telepathischen Korallen, leuchtenden Fischen und rätselhaften Riesenkraken. Bis er schließlich den tiefsten Punkt der Erde erreicht – die absolute Grenze für Mensch und Technik. Eine grandiose Entdeckungsreise, die zugleich unseren Wurzeln nachspürt.
