Especially since Vegas is there. You're practically paying for 5 STDs (if you're lucky).

Re: The Fun Fact Thread

Whoever wrote the list is just stereotyping. Because Nevada has Vegas and thus tens of thousands of hookers, they assume that if you're ever canoodling someone, it's because they're a hooker and you're a drunken tourist from New York, or a high school student.

Re: The Fun Fact Thread

Those might not be real, but there are plenty of acts that most would consider completely sexually normal that are illegal in different places. For example, oral sex was illegal in Louisiana until about ten years ago.

Ooh. I can take some wires out of a power cord, buy a pickle and do this just for the hell of it.

Technically, the tomato is a fruit. Politically, a vegetable.

Ah yes. A very interesting story.
See back in the past (I am not looking up the time) there was a supreme (I think it went there) court case over whether a tomato was a fruit or a vegetable. America (at the time) had an import tax on vegetables, but not fruit. Thus they decided it was a vegetable to get more money. I don't think it has ever been changed but it is scientifically a Fruit.
I feel like I should have a pipe, the blows bubbles, after that.

I would've thought it had something to do with money. And yes, a pipe is worthy for something like that.

"Shakespeare was baptized on April 26, 1564, in Stratford-upon-Avon, just three days before the Stratford parish register recorded an outbreak of the plague."

If he had gotten baptized a week later... what would've happened to Will? That's an interesting thought....

what does being baptized have to do with the plague?

Re: The Fun Fact Thread

Back then, date of birth wasn't recorded, just date of baptism. Only rich people and nobles ecorded the date of their birth. She basically means that if he had been born about a week later, he might have died as baby.

Indeed. But I see you have an incorrect pronoun—gender wise. >.<

Strawberries are not a fruit, but indeed are "receptacles.

Re: The Fun Fact Thread

This thread can't die!

That a Mexican stand off in Mexico is just called a stand off.

Right on. Or any time where 2 people are afraid to act (or 2 sides) because of what the other will/could do. I don't rightly know the difference between a stand off and a Mexican stand off.

Fun fact: the Cold War is a perfect example of the previously mentioned Mexican Standoff.

Ah. I can see that. What about the Cash Cab?
