    The term loose cannon dates back to sailing ship days, when a cannon (on the cannon deck) came loose from its moorings would roll back and forth on the deck with the rolling of the ship and could cause significant damage to the ship. Even knocking hole(s) in the side.

    Alexander Graham Bell hoped "Ahoy" would be used when the receiver was picked up.

    The average cumulus cloud weighs around 1.1 million pounds.

    Close, "Ahoy Hoy". Pretty weird, huh? I wonder what people said before they agreed on something.

    I love the implication of that Simpson's joke...

    From what I understand "Ahoy hoy" really didn't get much traction outside of Bell's initial testing...the implication being that C. Montgomery Burns was not only present when A. Graham Bell was testing the phone, but he was also old enough to be cognizant and develop habits (such as saying "ahoy hoy") ingrained enough to stick with him for life.

    In 1386, a pig in France was executed by public hanging for the murder of a child. It was given full legal representation and provided human clothing for trial.

    However, in 1750, a female donkey was acquitted of charges of bestiality due to witnesses to the animal's virtue and good behaviour while her co-accused human was sentenced to death.

    Well, there was an episode where he had to give his social security number, "zero zero zero, zero zero, zero zero zero two."

    Also an episode where he had stopped looking at his stock ticker right before the crash in 1929.

    "I invested in all the right stocks. Transatlantic Zeppelin, Confederated Slave Holdings..."

    And another where he compares himself to Oscar Schindler.

    In Spanish, when picking up the telephone, the greeting is Bueno (OK) not Hola (hello).

    The United States leads the world in miles of pipeline, at 2.5 million miles.

    The United States also leads the world in average number of tornados a year, at 300. France is second averaging 7.

    Costco sell 157,000 roasted chickens every day. At $4.99 its below their cost, but its a loss leader to get you in the door.

    I trust you waited until after they hatched to count them?

    Well they’d be eggs before they hatched wouldn’t they? Roasted eggs, might work better boiling.

    I did not know that.

    Of course you’d have to rely on the companies to be honest in their reporting...
