    Isn't this what we do in any thread in GD? Sometimes when I have a thought, I click a random thread and post it.

    That's my random thought right there :smile:

    I think I will try this Snickers Marathon bar. A customer at Frys grocery store once told me they tasted really good.

    e pluribus unum comes from a poem written by Virgil where he describes making a salad out of many different herbs.

    If Barbie were scaled up lifesize, she wouldn't ever be able to stand straight. With a shoe size 3 and a bust size somewhere near 40, her center of mass would lie above a spot just a little in front of her toes. If she didn't lean back a little, she'd keep falling on her face.

    One should never confuse Rube Goldberging with MacGyvering. Rube has a big hairy advocacy group.

    No. I remembering running across it while trying to get a feel for what would work for 5th and 6th grade kids (a friend of mine wanted me to talk about satellite orbits in her science class). It was funny enough to print up and show coworkers, but I never saved the page.

    Oh, wait, lucky you. A google search can find it in about 5 seconds: Barbie and Batman


    Ernie Shore of the Boston Red Sox was the only relief pitcher to be credited with a no-hitter. Babe Ruth was the starting pitcher, walked the first batter on four pitches, and was ejected from the game for arguing with the umpire. Ernie Shore picked the runner off of first base and retired the next 26 batters in a row. Picking that runner off of first base eventually cost him his place in the record books. Around 1990, the rules for crediting a pitcher with a no-hitter were changed: now a pitcher has to face at least 27 batters to be credited with a no-hitter and Shore only faced 26 batters. Shore, all the pitchers with no-hitters in rain shortened games, and all the pitchers with 8 inning no-hitters because they lost on the road in spite of a no-hitter were erased from the books.
