A lot of match making goes on in Israel, India and Pakistan.
In Sweden they have a lot of sulphur and wood and they make matches that way.
....
.....
Pie and mash is often eaten in metropolitan city pubs.
Pi is 22 over seven, or three point one four two. And mash is a Victorian word for making love or kissing.
...
...
Well, could someone continue making matches or fill in the gaps with matches....

Helen!!! At the first glance of the title of this thread I thought you were talking about something like astrological matches

hmmm, you are a Capricorn, so I imagine you just had or is going to have your birthday soon. Happy birthday to you!

Now let's see, what are your matches? Taurus and Virgo? As for how to make such matches, I guess it's somehow geomitry related? 60 degrees, 60 degrees, 60 degrees, so that's the most stable triangle? I've not been into astrology, anybody offers some theories?

You want to know how the match making goes by astrological signs?I know very little.
In Hindu astrology,there are few factors like your moon sign(which is composite key,combining your location of birth and position of moon at that time).There are few pairs which do not "match".For example,Virgo(Kanya) and Aries(Mesh).In addition there are 36 compatibility points(Gunas).Couple needs to score minimum 18 points.These points are:
1)Mental compatibility
2)Physical compatibility
3)Logevity of attraction between the couple
4)Familiy growth
5)Wealth
6)Luck
If couple scores between 18 to 24,its 'normal'!!If it scores between 25 to 32,its 'good'.Greater than 32,its excellent but in long term,the relationship might create some problems.
Horoscopes are first matched based on moon signs.Even if couple match say 30 points,but moon signs are not compatible(like Virgo and Aries),then match is rejected.In addition,horoscopes are checked if there are any ill effects.This is done by position of Mars.

Thank Arjun for his info on Indian Horoscope, from reliable Chinese Horoscope website I heard that mouse's perfect match is monkey. Check it out yourself.

Hi Helen! your birthday is in 3 or 4 days but I'm informed that my ISP will be down then, so I'm saying happy birthday now.

Cheese for rat girl, hand-made by someone (definitely not me, I cannot make anything even a Fleischk�se needs mentoring...).

This thread was really about picking on an idea and turning it around.( A better title perhaps...)

But thanks Arjun and Ellen on the astrology and horoscope info.

My parents used to have a Taurus.
One summer a dog ran into the side of it and dented just enough to prevent the passenger door from opening properly.

Okay, this may be a little pubescent, but can somebody use the word "mash" in a sentence for me (the Victorian variety, of course)? Word type would be good too, i.e. noun as in "wow, nice mash", or verb as in "geez, I haven't mashed in months".

M*A*S*H took place in a war zone.
War is a U2 album.
U2 is a kind of plane.
Victor was one of the pilots in the movie Airplane!
Victoria is the feminine version of the name Victor.
Queen Victoria reigned during the times of when "mash" was a ?dirty? word.

Of course, "smashed" in Victorian England was quite different from "smashed" in Elizabethan II England. And much ruder.

At first glance, thought you were referring to match making aka match fixing . Then Israel made the difference.
