    lol, actually, i did know that, geestar. i also know the reason for the sweaters: his arms were covered in military tattoos and i believe hash marks.

    did you know that ancient egyptians put dung in their beer?

    yupp, he got outta 'Nam and became a born-again christian; an ordained Protestant minister, if memory serves me. vowed to spend the rest of his life working for god. i don't think he ever really talked about what he did in the war after it was over. i'm guessing he might have been as psychologically-damaged and homocidal as they got in Vietnam.

    If any of you remember the movie "Back to the Future II" you will recall that Biff goes to the future and steals a Sports Almanac, where in turn he goes back to the past to give it to young Biff. As we all know Young Biff was able to become very wealthy by betting on games where he already knew the final score. In an obscure line you hear young Biff say "Florida is going to win the World Series in 1997, yeah right". This movie came out in 1987, ten years before the Marlins did actually win the world series. And what's really weird is that Florida didn't even have a baseball team in 1987.

    The Marlins didn't even exist at the time.

    Scary, huh?

    That is crazy, so is the Mr. Rogers thing. But is it really true about people putting dung in beer? That's total alcohol abuse.

    it was a religious thing. they believed that some of what came out of the body had to go back in.

    Here's a fact:

    About twenty-five percent of the population sneeze when they are exposed to light.
