There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

I was wondering about the relative carbonation. I know that cask conditioned beer has about one volume of CO2 dissolved in it, and that most keg beers have between one and two volumes apart from a few exceptions such as hefeweizens which can have three to four volumes. After a little research it looks like most sodas have four to five volumes, so I'm glad to know that my carbon fartprint is smaller than that of a soda drinker smiley - cheers

The first e-commerce transaction on the internet was the sale of a Sting CD, Ten Summoners' Tales in 1994 for $12.48 on a site called NetMarket.

The first item sold on eBay (at the time called AuctionWeb) was a broken laser pointer in 1995 for $14.83. One of the founders of the site emailed the buyer to confirm that he realized the laser pointer was broken. The buyer replied back that he was a collector of broken laser pointers.

True, but Michael Moore's background is famously blue collar working class Michigan car industry, not fancy schmancy artsy fartsy Hollywood smiley - tongueout

Although there's no reason why Michael D Moore couldn't be a second cousin twice removed on the branch of the family tree they don't talk about smiley - winkeye

Contrary to cartoon wisdom, coyotes can easily outrun roadrunners. Road runners can run up to 20mph/32kph, while coyotes can run 43mph/69kph.

One needn't take the thread heading too seriously.

If its interesting, especially if bizarre, that makes it suitable even if the fact has some use.smiley - ok
