Mata's Pizza (actual pizza chain)

The Mata Mata is an unusual-looking turtle that resembles the rotting vegetation found on the bottoms of the relatively shallow lakes and rivers in which it lives.

Karni Mata, a temple for rat worshipers

Mata Nui-fictional island made up by the Lego company

celluloid mata- CD or band, don't know which

Mata Hari, a Bally pinball game also from "The Deal".

Mata Muram, the leader of the Muramites in the Everquest game

Edgar Mata- Because I don't want to explain it myself.

And of course, the origional Matazone Da Caligano.

Yes, I have nothing better to do with my time.

Edit: Maybe someone should move this thread? I don't know, I'm not good with these things.

There's a winery called "Matanzai Creek" or something of that ilk, which, if looked at during the wee hours looks precisely like "Mata is a nazi. Avoid him, and then post about it."

There was also a Mrs. Mata that showed up in one of the math problems on some homework I had a while ago...

You'd think that by seventh grade they'd stop making us do word problems...

I seem to remember the native term for Easter island being something like, 'Mata Nui'...

Also, 'Mata Hari' was a spy during one of the world wars... (I want to sat WW1, but I'm not sure...)

And, finally, in Spanish, 'Mata' translates to "He kills"... huh.gif laugh.gif

"Kill" in Spanish, and only "Subdue" in French? Gah, even the French language is wimpy! laugh.gif

Apparently "Mata" means "inner thigh" in Japanese *giggles*
I think I learned that on here ages ago...

I'm told that in an African language that 'Mata' means 'the tightest strung bow'; in other words, 'the most dangerous weapon possible'.

'Matazone' also means 'area of jungle' in Portugese.

I only knew the Latin version when I chose my name...
