Merry Christmas!

    Just as nobody expects the spanish inquistion, here's something I bet you wouldn't expect to find on the snack aisle and is almost assuredly something YOU DO NOT KNOW.

    You're right. I didn't know that. Kinda would be funny t'see that on all our food, yeah?

    I wish I was as young as I look in the forum picture! But I'm not. :(

       My two closest friends are lefties.  Thus, this quote from it scares me:  "Despite how successful some left-handers are, and how inconspicuous most remain, throughout history left-handedness has been associated with clumsiness and with unpleasant traits such as untrustworthiness and insincerity."  Am I missing something. 

       

      ... and I'll call BS on that.

        The Who's John Entwistle is almost deaf.

        The Guess Who initially hated their band name.

          I am quite sure that John Entwistle is COMPLETELY deaf.  And something that rhymes with deaf.

           

            Yep. He completely lost his hearing (and all his other senses) the day before I had tickets to see the Who for the first time. Strangely enough, that show was cancelled.

            I changed this, and you noticed. Hurray for us!

                      It would probably just make Kitty throw up even more than usual.

                      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                            "Yap" is the name of an island in the South Pacific.  The US bypassed it during WWII as it retook islands from the Japanese.

                             

                            "Iwo Jima" was/is not really the name of that island.  The US folks who dubbed it "Iwo Jima" misunderstood what the Japanese were saying.

                             

                            As was true with several of the islands there, the Japanese built all kinds of tunnels and bunkers and stuff.  They did not really believe in 'surrender'.  Even with the end of the war, getting some of those dudes to throw in the towel was tricky business.  The last couple of Japanese soldiers did not give in until 1951.

                             


                            And in the end...

                              There actually are "B-cell" batteries... larger that A and smaller than C... but they just didn't take in the US.  They apparently are used in Europe, primarily to power bicycle lamps.
