Gray matter refers to certain parts of the human anatomy. It’s present in the brain, brain stem and cerebellum, and throughout the spinal cord.
A walnut when cracked open, looks a lot like the top view of a human brain. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, which help support brain functions.
Below are the latest 10 posts featuring ideas that have leaked from my own gray matter at one time or another.
There's a sign on one of the main roads leading into the city of Olongapo in the Philippines. It reads (and you can look at the larger image to verify what I'm saying) "Home of the most beautiful women in the world". Filipino women, obviously.

Public urination is offensive to some people. Of course, it depends on the area and the customs of the people in that area. You can see public urination happening often outside urban areas. Not so much in urban public places.
Sometimes there are serious medical reasons that can cause problems with frequent urination, but not always. Sometimes it's all about what you're doing or not doing regularly.
Most people in America are familiar with English honorific titles (also called name prefixes) like Mr., Mrs. and Ms. Most are also familiar with "sir" and "ma'am" when addressing a person of higher authority.

Yandex is the largest search engine in the Russian Federation. The last time I checked, it had a 60 percent market share in that country. It has other services as well, including free e-mail.
Baidu is the largest search engine in China. I have no clue what the market share is and there's no way to find out. I'm not aware of any other services this search engine has to offer.
As far as I know, there are no natural landmarks in either Olongapo or at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in the Philippines. There are plenty of artificial landmarks, although I probably can't mention them all. I'm not an expert on everything that can be considered a landmark.
