During Operation Desert Storm, a soldier's Game Boy survived a bombing on the barracks. The Game Boy is still functional, and is currently on display at the Nintendo World Store in New York City.

I am rarely in that part of town, but whenever I am and I have time,I make it a point to go check it out.

The distance between "center of the civilized world" London and "grim oop north" Halifax is approximately the same as the distance between New York and Boston. The United States is f&%@ing huge.


It is illegal to argue in tax court that the federal income tax is unconstitutional.

There is a story I have been unable to verify about Nazi POWs being sent by train to Fort Riley during WWII. The train ride was so long the POWs though that they were being sent in circles to confuse them. They escaped and after days of travel thought that they had gotten away by crossing the border into Mexico. when in fact they had made it to the border... of Oklahoma. They were promptly sent back only then realizing just how big our country really was.

Guess they escaped on May 3rd 1945

It's not illegal to MAKE the argument. You most certainly won't get anywhere with it though.

Actually, it is. It is considered a frivolous tax argument, and there are civil penalties for using them.

Paul Newman was training to be a pilot while in the Navy, but was discovered to be color-blind, ending his flying aspirations.

Indeed! One thing at a time, Young Master Trigger.

Who you callin' young? I ain't the oldest fart on this board by a long shot, but I'm still past the 'young adult' stage. And I do what I want with relaying amusing, irrelevant factoids.

Seriously, though, the long post was me typing the fact in point form as I was recalling them, and then expanding on them later. I'll keep the posts shorter, but I'm still likelly to post multiples.

Actually it has the exact same claim. Europe and Asia were once separate just like India. The Ural Mountains were formed the exact same way and reason as the Himalayas, a continental collision. However the collison was much earlier, and Europe, unlike India is no longer grinding against it, having finally stopped in it's motion whereas India has not settled down yet.

While I admit my reasoning is flawed on divisions, (I heard the Urals were chosen mostly because it seemed like a relatively straight, even line) it still sounds like India has a better claim if it's still grinding, while the Eurasian division has settled down.

If nothing else, if time is not a factor at all in determining division, wouldn't that mean all possible divisions have equal claim, since they all used to be one continent?

Anyways, quick factoid for now.

Nintendo and Sony cooperated to develop a CD games console. The deal fell through, Sony took the half-developed console, and made it into the Playstation.
