Many assassins in the olden days underwent similar educations as doctors, to better know where the most vital spots on the human body are, so they can make their kills as quickly and effortlessly as possible.

Have fun at your next doctor's appointment. You may insert evil, maniacal laughter here, if you wish.

CS Lewis died on the same day, same year, as JFK (November 22 1963).

About 3 decades later, on that same day, Wendy's founder Dave Thomas also died.

Coincidence, or CONSPIRACY?!

Jello Biafra was born on my birthday (same day, not same year) and Pierre Reverdy, my favorite poet, also died on this day.

Also, since this is the 17th reply to this topic, and I was born on the 17th, this must mean I'm the reincarnation of Reverdy with the spirit of Biafra.

I want to know:

1) If Wendy was hot

and

2)If I would hit it

The largest earthquake in the continental US actually occurred near New Madrid, Missouri (not in California)! I grew up in that region, the geology still today is fascinating in rural uncultivated areas, especially near Reelfoot Lake.

I happen to know that one because I live in the area. :D

Jello Biafra is in the MC Frontalot movie/documentary "Nerdcore Rising".  He cautioned the nerds about labeling themselves, because the label will become a cage.

I also invented the word "Nerdcore" back when I was playing in punk bands.  We had shirts and everything.  Nerdcore was our band name.

Jello Biafra is awesome.

Edgar Allen Poe died on my birthday (same date different year) October 7th.

Also the Baltimore Ravens where named after Poe's poem of the same name, and that is the extent of my sports related knowledge.

There's a tribe in a remote island in the Indian ocean called the Sentinelese(this is what we call them), for at least the last 1000 years they've been hostile to outsiders greeting them with arrows.  So this makes them the most uncontacted and remote group on earth.

There is a huge 'island' of trash (mostly plastic bottles) on the Pacific ocean.

There's a place in New Jersey called the "Palace of Depression." It's essentially a giant house made up of junk and garbage.
