Then there are stocks and bonds. That has to do with investments ... and I certainly can't speak about that ... I know absolutely nothing about that. But you hear the term "junk bonds" or "savings bonds" and they have to do with investing money and earning back interest.

Then there is "bond" that has to do with attaching something to something else. It can be a physical attachment, like when super-glue is used to "bond" two things together permanently. In this sense "bond" is even used to describe a chemical attachment of two atoms being "bonded" together by an electrical force. Or it can be more emotional - like the "bond" between a mother and child.

The attachment idea of the word "bond" can also be used in regards to "chains" - for example, a shackle might bind a prisoner to a cell wall.

Finally, my favorite, there is James Bond. Double-oh-seven. 007. Bond. James Bond. Yeah.
Ok, I understand. Bonds will be also "bonos" in Spanish.

But... Which Bond do you mean? There've been a lot of 007

Oh, I guess that I would choose Sean Connery, with Pierce Brosnan running a very close 2nd.
