In 1975, a 17-year-old boy was killed while riding on his moped. He was killed exactly 1 year after his 17-year-old brother was killed while riding the same moped, in the same intersection, by the same taxi, with the same driver, carrying the same passenger. The Twins Erskine and Neville suffered an unbelievable coincidence.

your first stanza their contradicts the second one with florida being a spanish word pronouncing it with an I would actually be the correct original spanish pronunciation.


jake 1090 goes pretty hard with flawdah pronunciation and the guy is from boston but got jailed in flawdah
The pronunciation changed when English speakers took ova, son.

Pronounce it Flo-ree-da and you'll get laughed right out of the fucking state.

2 facts about me. My erect penis is the exact same length as 2 betting shop pencils tip to tip.

I'm banned from every betting shop in the UK.

The voices in “Alvin and the Chipmunks” are not chipmunk voices. They are actually human voices sped up to sound like chipmunks.

Polaris has not been and will not always be the Pole Star because of precession. Several thousand years ago the star Thuban occupied the position closest to the true pole.

I think I've seen one trivia question.


In the United States, the record for most eggs in a year from one hen averaged 1 egg per day.
What was the chicken's name?
Babe Ruth of Nebraska in 1927.


While the Sultan of Swat was breaking records on the diamond, she was breaking egg records, and for egg #167, Babe Ruth broke the shell for his omelette, a shell that was flown via airmail directly to him in a jewelery box.

"Babe Ruth was a contestant in the National Egg Laying Contest sponsored by the American Egg Laying Association. The contest started on Nov. 1, 1926, and was to end on Oct. 25."

The same year the Bambino would go on to slug his record-breaking 60th homer, to go along with 165RBI's and a .356 average.

This is the great globular cluster in Hercules. It looks crowded but it isn't. On an imaginary scale model of the cluster, the stars would be represented by a million grains of sand, distributed throughout a spherical volume of space some 100 miles in diameter.

Each grain would be .03 inch in diameter and separated from the next by a distance of 3 miles. Even in the most closely packed central mass the grains would still be separated from each other by most of a mile.

So what looks like crowding is really still mostly empty space.

I fucking hate rats. They’re disgusting and I would poison, trap and kill any that came around me or my house. That being said, the scientists who conducted these experiments and those like this, are even more disgusting. Fuck them.
