In Paris, bloodthirsty jewel thief Roger Sartet escapes from custody with the help of the Manalese, a small-time but well-organised Sicilian Mafia clan led by patriarch Vittorio and which includes his sons Aldo and Sergio and son-in-law Luigi .. While in prison, Sartet got to know an electrician who was involved in the setting up of an extensive security system at a diamond exhibition in Rome — the electrician returned home early, unannounced, caught his wife in bed with a lover and shot them. Unaccustomed to prison life, he made friends with Sartet and bit-by-bit supplied him with details of the exhibition..Wells was a Fairfax employee working in the advertising sales department, when she started performing tiny underground gigs with DJ friends in Melbourne..Vittorio and a fellow Mafiose, Tony Nicosia of New York, go to the exhibition only to find that some changes have been made that make a simple robbery more difficult. Furthermore the exhibition hall is just down the road from the local police station. Nicosia instead comes up with a plan to steal the diamonds while they are en route to another exhibition in New York and sends over Jack , an alcoholic, in order to pass on the details..Wearing the shoes infuses him with the personality and memories of the victim; he continues his life as the dead man..In Rome, the gang subtly kidnap Edward Evans, the insurance man sent to oversee the transfer of the diamonds to New York. Sartet Takes his place and joins the other officials accompanying the diamonds on a regular scheduled flight to New York via Paris...

The Isle of Man , otherwise known simply as Mann , is a self-governing British Crown Dependency, located in the Irish Sea between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of Lord of Mann..The Isle of Man is Manx: Ellan Vannin, where ellan is a Manx word meaning island.. The earliest form of Man is Manu or Mana,which appears in the genitive case as Vaninn, hence Ellan Vannin "Island of Man"..The name Mana/u is related to the figure of Celtic mythology known as ManannĂ¡n mac Lir to the Irish and Manawydan to the WelshThe island has been inhabited since before 6500 BC. As one of the 6 Celtic nations, Gaelic cultural influence began in the 5th century AD, and the Manx language, a branch of the Gaelic languages, gradually emerged. In 627, Edwin of Northumbria conquered the Isle of Man along with most of Mercia...Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea; along with surrounding minor islands, it constitutes an autonomous region of Italy, and it is officially referred to as Regione Siciliana..Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean. It extends from the tip of the Apennine peninsula, from which it is separated only by the narrow Strait of Messina, towards the North African coast.. Its most prominent landmark isis Mount Etna, which, at 3,350 m (10,990 ft), is the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world..The earliest archeological evidence of human dwelling on the island dates from as early as 8000 BC. At around 750 BC, Sicily was host to a number of Phoenician and Greek colonies, and for the next 600 years, it was the site of the Greek–Punic and Roman–Punic wars, which ended with the Roman destruction of Carthage. After the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD, Sicily frequently changed hands, and during the early Middle Ages, it was ruled in turn by the Vandals, Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Later on, the Kingdom of Sicily lasted between 1130 and 1816, first subordinated to the crowns of Aragon, Spain, and the Holy Roman Empire, and then finally unified under the Bourbons with Naples, as the Kingdom of the 2 Sicilies..After the birth of the Italian Republic in 1946, Sicily was given special status as an autonomous region..Sicily has a roughly Triangular Sandles, which earned it the name Trinacria, from Greek treis, "3", and akra, "promontory"..

But you wear it with such disdain, my guess is you didn't come from MonKey, and your school friends never let you forget it.. Which means that you were at that school by the grace of someone else's charity: hence that chip on your shoulder.. And since you're first thought about me ran to O-rphan," that's what I'd say You Are... http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showp...&postcount=366
