I did not know this. Yikes.. this means I've done two RP's on E where I played the son of the devil? Did one a while back doing old Vlad. It was enjoyable. Now, doing a demon who's pop is the devil.

Did you know.. Isaac Asimov wrote two sci-fi series in the 50s.. then continued them thirty years later in the 80s? The Foundation Series.. and The Robot Series.

wow. Quite a busy mythical creature that Athena was.

Did you know the Chinese discovered America before Chris Columbus did (Albeit after the vikings, and of course the Koreans that would become the native Americans) But that the Chinese decided that since it was not Chinese, it was therefor inferior, and not worth the effort of conquering or colonizing

Wow I really did not know that.

Did you know that Of all the monuments in the world, Stonehenge is considered to be the most ancient. It is believed to have been built in 2500 BC. Stonehenge is a wonderful reflection of prehistoric eras. The exact purpose of Stonehenge is unknown. We hope you find Stonehenge facts intriguing. Some consider Stonehenge to be an altar for sacrifices, whereas others consider it as a tool for astronomy. During the 18th century, some proposed the theory that Stonehenge served as a site for gallows.

Stonehenge comprises stone works that surround a circular region made up of mammoth stones. The following are some Stonehenge facts:

    Stonehenge is situated on the Salisbury Plain, located in Wiltshire, England. It is nearly 137 km to the southwest of London.
    The word ‘stonehenge’ is derived from two words: stone and henge. This is a tribute to the largest henge in Great Britain.
    There is no direct evidence to suggest the builders of Stonehenge. The Druids, Greeks, and Atlanteans are believed to be the builders of this magnificent structure.]
    The construction of Stonehenge was completed between 3100 BC and 1100 BC.
    In the year 1986, UNESCO awarded Stonehenge World Heritage Status. The site has legal protection by the Scheduled Ancient Monument.
    The British Crown owns Stonehenge. Its management has been trusted to English Heritage. National Trust owns the surrounding areas.
    The circle has been aligned to coincide with the midsummer sunrise and midwinter sunset. The southerly and northerly rising of the moon is also seen.
    The architecture of Stonehenge has taken into account mathematical and geometrical considerations. The construction is structurally engineered to perfection.
    Stonehenge is replete with a henge or ditch, and a bank. This surrounds the massive stone circle.
    The stones of the structure are situated in such a way that they become larger in size at the center. The stones alternate between tall, thin stones and those stones with a tapering and obelisk shape.
    Two varieties of stone were utilized for Stonehenge’s construction. The so called bluestones weighed nearly four tons. They were transported over a distance of 240 miles. The second variety of stones included the ‘Sarsen’ stones, which weighed nearly 25 tons and stood at an impressive height of eighteen feet.
    It is believed that more than 30 million hours of labor were spent in the construction work.
    Of the nine hundred stone rings present in the British Isles, Stonehenge is the most renowned.
    Most scholars and archaeologists believed that Stonehenge served as a site for ritual activities for the Neolithic periods. However, it could also have been an astronomical observatory.

Yes--when your wife is pregnant and you're sweating very minute, that 'extra' month sure feels like forever...

Did you know that Marco Polo brought pasta (noodles) back with him from China, to Italy?  And early explorers of the Americas brought tomatoes to Italy?

So there was no spaghetti as we know it until after the early 1520s...
