What's The Difference? - Wife vs Mozzies

Come home from work. Missus arcs up about some cucumbers which aren't to her liking. Yes, typical end-of-the-world stuff. Decide to go outside and do some work. Know that the mozzies will be bad. Look for mosquito repellent. Don't find any. Proceed outside anyway. After 20 minutes realise that wife isn't as bad as mozzies.

You can slap mozzies - don't try with wife.
Mozzies keep coming - wife eventually gives up.
Mozzies constantly attack you - wife only does it a few times a day.
Mozzies make annoying noise - wife makes annoying noise.
Mozzies stop bothering you when you come inside - wife can bother you inside or outside.

You Can Take The Boy Out Of The Hitler Youth

... but can you take the Hitler Youth out of the boy? Interestingly, before the conclave to elect the Catholics' new Man of God on Earth, Pope Benedict the 16th, Joseph Ratzinger said that if he was elected he would bring the world's religions closer together.

Apparently he was a member of the Hitler Youth. It makes you wonder just how close the religions of Catholicism and Judaism are going to become with him as the Pope.

The Famous Always Die In Threes

It seems that when one famous person dies there are always a couple more that go with them. Just who are the three latest to drop off the planet?

Pope John Paul II.
Prince Rainier III

Who is number three?
Sir Joh Bjelke-Peterson?
Al Grasby? - can't even find a decent Web page about the former Whitlam Government Immigration Minister.

Who else of note died recently? Or is it only Hollywood actors who die in threes and am I barking up the wrong tree?

I'm afraid that I've lost too many brain cells since then to remember. Anybody got any ideas? Well, Essendon didn't make the finals on the day that Diana died - that should be close enough.
