Roman prisoners from the Battle of Carrhae might have ended up fighting the Chinese in central Asia in 36BC.

The main piece of evidence for this is a Roman helmet found in Western China with "One of the slaves" written on it in Chinese.

The most delicious part being the unidentified high molecular weight hydrocarbon compound which most of the brain had turned into.

Zombies can run on oil? And yet they have zero emissions (most of the time, anyway), so they are acting as a carbon sink. Therefore, zombies are Green and thereby good for the environment.

Or alternatively "Yes I did know, you told me this morning and I spent all day trying to work the word Durst into conversation."

Oops. Sorry about that. I'd lost track of what I had posted prior to those awesome Texas facts.


No worries ;) it's hard to work durst into conversations! I really enjoy this thread, thanks Aberzombie

Did you know that New Hampshire is cooler than Texas?

Did you know?

A wind speed of 231 MPH was recorded in 1934 atop Mt. Washington, the tallest mountain in New Hampshire (or New England for that matter). Once the world record, this speed still holds as the second-highest wind speed ever recorded on the planet Earth (somewhere in Australia beat the record in 1996)

Unpossible! I have been assured by a panel of respected experts that Texas is, in fact, the coolest and most awesomest place to live in all the universe. It's why they keep trying to get me to move there. They know my own awesomeness is wasted in the northeast and would help offset the lack of awesomeness of some slackers.

You tell a lot of people they will be eaten last. So which one is it?

In the southern, flatland, might-as-well-be-Massachusetts, part.

When I was a kid, it was semi-rural, but it's a lot more crowded now. They just put in a Bloomingdale's/Saks Fifth Avenue outlet mall less than a mile from where I grew up!
