Growing up, I knew a lot of kids whose parents had merged their last names with a hyphen. But I can't think of one couple who merged their last names organically into a brand new name. To give you an example, if Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married and merged their last names into a brand new name, it would be "Polie", or "Jitt." I am looking for real life examples of people who have consciously done just such a thing. Thanks.
I watch a lot of non-fiction shows, like Mythbusters and the First 48. Throughout these shows, often things are blurred on purpose. In Mythbusters, they blur brand names. On the First 48, they blur numbers, license plates, faces. I was just curious (A) how much something like that would cost in terms of dollars, (B) how long it would take to do - say an episode, and (C) what computer program they use to do this. Thanks!
Help me brainstorm names for my brother and his wife's new real estate team! [more inside]
There's a book I read about 8 years ago I'm trying to identify. I can't remember the title. It was a thick paperback, a blue cover with possibly a butterfly on it. But here's the weird thing about this book, which is why I am hoping someone can help me - it was written by two people, and they were only identified by their first names on the cover. I had never seen that before. On the cover, it was like, "Edward & Judy" or something like that. Weird, huh? [more inside]
