We better keep that chromosome alive as long as possible so the ZU Womenz don't feel too powerful.

...Why did you need to say that? To the people who don't know, that might actually sound like you were saying more than just an opinion.

"True pizzas" don't have pineapple, among other things. (they generally have nothing sweet at all.)

"Wal-Mart Stores bought $18 billion of goods from China in 2004 making it China's eighth-largest trading partner (ahead of Australia, Canada and Russia)."

Really? Wow.

I say the only real pizza is a Margarita (sp?), but that's just me... and to a degree, the people of Naples.

But really, pizzas aren't meant to have anything sweet on them.

Re: The Fun Fact Thread

I have some!

- The largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded was given the name of a Nintendo character. Who was it? Ike! :3
- Hurricane Ike also had the biggest Integrated Kinetic Energy of any Atlantic storm. Read what the first letters of each of those three words in "Integrated Kinetic Energy" spell. IKE. Funny, eh? XD
- Luigi's name came from a pizza parlor near Nintendo of America called Mario and Luigi's.
- Pittsburgh has more bridges than any other city in the world sans Venice, Italy.
- I have stood on Florida's highest point, which is a small hill in Jacksonville.

...Which was completely unrelated to the character. Don't make it sound like it was more interesting than it really was.

Although that bridges thingy was an interesting tidbit. Almost makes up for it.

I never said it was. :/

Though the hurricane bore many similarities to Ike himself. I'd list them, but I don't want to go off topic.

Random Fun Fact: The water in your tap has been through, at least, eight human bodies. I think. Something like that.

Please, never do that. Also, Ike was a Category 4, Andrew did more damage.

Never do what? And when did I say anything about Ike's category or how much damage it did? Of course Andrew did more, it was more costly. Katrina was the most costly hurricane, followed by Andrew, then Ike.

6,000,000 people in the world... and it's only gone through a mere eight? Sheesh. I expected way more.

Ive seen that place. Its in Seattle, Pike Place Market, to be exact. I have a photo of it, that i shall post when not on my Wii. I didnt realize there was an actual relationship between the pizza place and the characters! I figured it a really cool coincidence. Thanks for solving that little mystery, Ranil!

EDIT: Heres the photo!

Arr, an' th' name o' Marrrrrio came from Nintendo o' the Americas bilge-swilling warehouse landlord, Marrrrio Segali. 'E demanded 'is loot from th' first Nintendo Cap'n, Minoru Arrrakawa, in a stormy rage, while th' crew were thinkin' o' names for their Jumpman, ye savvy?

Edit: Arrr, me dreaded foe, the ninjarrr!

There's a reason why I shouldn't post this late, what with the brain shutting down and everything.
