My friends mom is hot.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZLfasMPOU4&ob=av3e


Gianna Distenca is hot too but nobody knows what happened to her after this video.

She's 23 now. I am now legitimately curious in what she looks like today. Not even a half + 7 violation and I was an adult when that video came out, wow.

President Obama and George W Bush are 10th cousins, once removed; they share a common ancestor from mid-17th century Cape Cod.

George W. Bush is my 8th cousin twice removed (IIRC); we share a common ancestor from 17th-century New Amsterdam.
Chances are, we are related as well.
President Obama and George W Bush are 10th cousins, once removed; they share a common ancestor from mid-17th century Cape Cod.

In fact, every US president is related to each other, at least by marriage.

Every US president is also directly related, except for Martin Van Buren (no wonder he was the best!).

The universe's size in proportion to the mass it contains is equivalent to a building 20 miles wide on all sides and 20 miles tall that contains a single grain of sand.

Very interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if the vast majority of Americans share common New World ancestry.

Some more interesting facts!

  • Various studies indicate that around 30% of American whites have African ancestry.
  • The average African American has ~20% European ancestry.
  • Senator James Shields represented Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri in Congress at different points in his career, the only person to represent three different states.
  • Sam Houston: the only person to ever be Governor of two different states, as well as the only person who was a US Governor and a foreign head of state.
  • The Soiled Dove Plea is one of the greated extemporaneous speeches ever made.

If this is the duel I'm thinking of, it was called off because Lincoln wanted to fight with, and I quote, 'cavalry broadswords of the largest size', in what would now be considered essentially a mud-wrestling pit with a board over it, and Shields realized how out of hand the situation had become and backed off.

Just yesterday I learned that he was removed from office for opposing secession in 1861.

Not sure about that, but their seconds convinced both men to call it off after Lincoln shot a tree branch clean off right over Shields' head, showing him what kind of marksman he was.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

If a gallon of water is dumped in the ocean and evenly diluted throughout all of the world's oceans, a random gallon scooped from the ocean will still have 17 molecules from the original gallon.
