At least once in your lifetime you take a breath.

In Russian language you basically say the same word (with grammatical differences) for hearing and smelling.

S.P.A. means Sanatio Per Aquam - Healing with water in latin.

SPA is the acronym for Spondylarthritis Ankylopoetica, a chronic autoimmune inflammation of the backbones which leads to a state (usually between 10 - 30 years), where all of your backbones gets fixed and connected with "bone bridges", so you cannot turn even your head arond, there are no movement between the backbones.

"Errare humanum est, in errore perseverare srultum est." - proverb in Latin: "It's a human thing to do mistakes, but to not correcting them, is dumbness."

Graham's number is so big that visualizing it would turn your head into a literal black hole.

This is because your brain has a limit on the entropy it can store and a black hole the size of your head takes far less entropy to produce than Graham's number has.

Graham's number is huge. 

All we know is that it's last digit is 7.

Actually that' the best part of what we know about the Graham number . It ends with 7.

Also the furthest we can narrow it down too is between 11 and Graham's number.

the last 3 fission reactors will be shut down in germany in this or next year (IMO :( )

Oh no... why is your govt. shutting down perfectly fine nuclear plants? 

On that note, non-soviet Europe has never had a major nuclear disaster. Despite that, anti-nuclear activism is somewhat commonplace.
