Hey I'm 22.6 in Martian years and 177 had I been born on Mercury.

So your the age you should be here. :wink:
Me too. Amazing how that works.
WOW Neptune, Uranus and Pluto haven't circled the sun once since I've been born. :shock:

Thanx MB. 8)

Long before Dalmations became firehouse mascots, they were bred as coach dogs. Coach dogs were trained to run alongside horse-drawn carriages to help guard against highwaymen.

Because of the Dalmations ability to run long distances, its inbred love of horses, and its vivd coloring, it was the natural choice to run ahead of the horse-drawn fire engine of the past, warning onlookers to clear the way.

After the fire engine was motorized and the Dalmation was no longer needed for its services, firemen honored the breed by adopting it as the firehouse mascot.

Thousand Island dressing is named after an archipelago that sits in the Saint Lawrence River on the U.S.-Canada border, and there are actually 1,793 of them, some of which are so small that they contain nothing more than a single home.

I don't easily play the plagiarism ball, but hearing Pink Floyd's Echoes vs Phantom Of The Opera's theme... man that's just it.

:oops: Sorry, I can't. No matter how much I try, I can't hear the Bolero in Memory either.

There's no way to score 19 points with your hand in Cribbage.

Scores of 25, 26, 27, and greater than 29 are also impossible in hand point totals.

That's odd, most Ponzo illusions don't work on me but this one does. Must be the proper perspective.

Discovered it takes me 5 minutes to suffer simulation nausea and 5 hours to get rid of simulation nausea.

I learned that Bango is the official mascot of the Milwaukee Bucks.


Is a ponzo illusion an Italian version of a ponzi scheme? :mrgreen:
