What've you learned today?
« on: December 31, 2011, 11:57:51 AM »
Want to share an interesting fact or something you didn't know? Here's the place!

My first new thing:
I had no idea that Steve Martin was in Little Shop of Horrors. I just watched it for the first time and freaked out.

Ouch. I guess that could be good or bad, but I'm guessing bad.

Hm, I learned that over half of my Christmas presents have a Hello Kitty theme.

I learned that Lucia Rikaki has died, at only 50. I have to dig out Quartet in Four Movements and watch it again.

I learned that they did not get rid of that Gandhi loves nukes thing in Civ 5. However, watching me as Rome and him basically have the world divided in two (I had the new world and half of Asia (nearest Japan) he had the rest march giant death robots and fighters and carriers and all that good stuff around blowing the world to hell and gone is awesome.

Wait... do you mean the former country that got kinda picked on a lot or do you mean The Republic of Moldavia? The Republic Of Moldavia is a remaining piece of the other, and still exists today! Man, that country has gotten some hard times. Romania's messed with it, took a piece and the Ukraine done the same. :\

Anyway! If it's the green part.


And I learned that today!

Thank you Google and Wikipedia.

That's easy, it's a MaMorPaGa (MMORPG). I would probably hate it. Because it would have a bunch of kill X quests and fetch quests. Like I'm going to pay for that.

I learned the location of Moldovia today.

I learned that boredom takes my mind to places they shouldn't go.

I also learned that Joe Mantegna once provided the voice of a caller on Frasier. Man, that was a trip.
