Jag fick faktiskt en förklaring direkt skickad till mig, som jag nog
aldrig fick vidarebefodrad.  Så här lyder den:

- Be careful using the phrase "Hello Sailor", I believe it was orginally used by
- prostitutes who where trying to get some business out of navy men who were on
- shore leave. It is normally a flirtatious statement a woman uses on a stanger
- who's she is trying to get to know better. I think it is also used more by older
- woman (kind of a 1940's kind of phrase)
- "Nothing Happens Here" --- to tell you the truth I don't know if I've heard
- this as a phrase. If I have I must not have thought much about it. But I think
- you are right. At least that would be my guess.
