No, it's not "the final viscaria thread".  There'll be more.

That would have to be tantric yoga.

On a related note, I once thought my old-time favourite blade was named after a former great.  Turned out it wasn't, it was named after a carpenter's tool instead.  I really was surprised, when staying in this little Swedish town called Riksgränsen and overhearing a local woodwork senpai instruct his kohai on how to kjelljohansson the tiles on the roof on that picturesque wooden church.

I can't find a single mention of this player anywhere online. Baal, are you making this up or can you supply a link that has any info on this Italian player?


Anyone?

Dude, the entire thread downstream and including the first mention of Giancarlo Emmanuel Viscaria was made up. It is not much fun when you have to explain the joke , but I guess I have to in order to keep people from wasting time.

Looks like I got you though LOL  And it's not even April 1.

Now that you know this you get extra points if you can figure out the main second element of the joke (immediately seen by Jolan and pgpg)  Also the pop culture reference and the Monty Python homage.

By the way, what's a good  alternstive to Tenergy 05?:  There is no good alternative to Tenergy 05.

Accept the reality.

Thanks.
