“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”
You’ll understand the title of this post better in a moment when you read the latest collection of facts from the fasab archives.
A little bit of something for everyone I hope.
In Spanish the word
“wives” and “handcuffs”.
That explains a lot.
NASA was sued by three men from Yemen
for trespassing on Mars.
They claimed that they had inherited
the planet from their ancestors
thousands of years ago.
The Incas introduced the world to potatoes
via the Spanish conquistadors and
nearly a quarter of Europe’s growth
between the 1700s and the 1900s has been
attributed to the introduction of this crop.
According to scientists, about three quarters
of the species that make Australia home
have yet to be discovered.
When an unemployed painter named
Richard Lawrence tried to shoot Andrew Jackson,
his gun wouldn’t fire.
The 67 year old president began to
beat his would-be assassin with a cane
during which the assassin pulled out another gun.
This gun also misfired and the
disgruntled painter was dragged away.
There is actually high speed internet access
all the way up Mount Everest.
In 2000, Congress passed the
National Moment of Remembrance Act
which requires all Americans to stop
what they are doing at 3pm on Memorial Day
to remember and honor those who have died
serving the United States.
At the start of World War I
the US Air Force only had 18 pilots.
Rogue planets, also known as interstellar planets,
nomad planets or orphan planets, are
planetary-mass objects that have
broken from their orbits and
travel aimlessly through space.
The closest rogue planet to Earth yet discovered
is around 7 light years away.
You can get ice cream in lobster,
squid Ink, and caviar flavors.
At 1,435 meters per second
the speed of sound in water is almost
five times faster than it is in air.
Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones
attributed his popular song
(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
to a dream.
He’s said to have recorded the acoustic riffs
just before falling back to sleep.
(The riffs were followed by 40 minutes of him snoring.)

Many good ones in this collection … the suing NASA is my favorite. Just goes to show one can sue for anything, but winning is a different story. While on the topic of space travel, Rogue Planets would seem to be a perfect home for Sarah Palin.
Nice thought but not just for Sarah. I have one earmarked for the new site of the Senate and HoR.
I like the Rogue Planet suggestions too! And I knew esposas meant wives but not handcuffs.
Thanks. Re the handcuffs, it’s scary it’s so true 🙂
