    Seriously, it doesnt. Its been tested and proved.

    I have no idea who would need to prove something so irrelevant, but they did.

    Dorothy's last name in The Wizzard of Oz was Gale. Pun intended.

    While Friends and ER were on both shows had characters with the same name. Rachel Green (Jennifer Anniston on Friends) and the daughter of Dr. Mark Green on ER (a recuring ancillary character).

    Regarding those VW Beetles, every year fender will fit any year. Might not match the one on the other side but it'll fit.

    Allesandro Volta invented the first battery, called the voltaic stack in 1800. It was a cylinder with discs of copper and zinc separated by cloth in a solution of salt water or sodium hydroxide.

    On this date in 1886 president Grover Cleaveland dedicated The Statue of Liberty on Bledsoe Island.

    The statue, a gift from France, was shipped over in more than 200 packages. Once here it was reassembled. The statue is over 200 feet tall.

    The original torch was made of stained glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany. It toured the country to raise publicity (and funds for the installation).

    School children mailed pennies to raise enough to construct the base.

    In 1950 Bledsoe's name was officially changed to Liberty Island.
