    In Africa, hippos kill more people per year than any other animal (except perhaps some insects). Don't become a statistic -- don't feed the hippopotamus!

    The Ostrich is actually a very deadly bird, more then capable of clawing a human to death.

    The Cassowary, in Australia, is, if anything, more dangerous as it doesn't particularly fear humans but is of a similar size to the ostrich. They're actually considered dangerous enough that people are warned against approaching them. (Mind you, that seems to be true for everything with a mouth, or tentacles, in that part of the world...)

    The forecast high for this day for Victoria, BC, is cooler than the forecast low for Houston, TX.

    More people die from beestings in Australia than sharks, crocodiles or cassowarys put together. (Probably because the sharks, crocodiles and cassowarys are too busy fighting each other to kill people when put together.)

    In 1884, National League Pitcher Charles Radbourn had an ERA of 1.38, 441 strikeouts, and a record of 60 wins 12 losses, which is possibly the best year any major league pitcher ever had. His team, the Providence Grays, won the pennant that year.

    I live there. The state was named after a province in France centered around the city of Le Mans.

    The word "sabotage" came from the practice (by French peasant laborers) of throwing wooden shoes (sabots) into the wooden cogs of factory machinery to wreck them. The industrial revolution did not benefit everybody.
