Believing in total equality, Soviet Russia adopted he AK-47 as a replacement for the Mosin Nagant in order to give other nations a fair chance.

The big bang was caused when a punch from Mr. T and a kick from Chuck Norris collided.

Obama paid your rent, your power bill, and put gas in your tank.

Helen of Troy was indeed "The face that launched 1000 ships." What is not as well known is that the ships launched to PREVENT her from coming home when she got homesick. Apparently she was a bit of a nagger.

Hurricane Katrina did not destroy New Orleans. A local day care's 2-year-old class went on a field trip and the teacher went to the restroom, leaving the kids unsupervised. In fact, had Katrina not come in the damage would have been much worse, as the class cut short the field trip before they got to the French quarter.

Anyone who has had kids - especially boys - will appreciate this.

Massive Pentagon-leased super computers have detected a trend that between Jan 5, 2007 and July 14, 2009, Okie posted a thread about new food discoveries only on odd-numbered days during months that had R in them.

The pattern was only discovered when seismic shifts in certain commodities buying was revealed to such an extent as to threaten the nation's food supply. The logisticians became concerned and dug deeper when whole supermarket rows of spam and various junk food would periodically be wiped out after certain online internet activity, causing purchasing agents to place such massive replenishment orders as to alter the nation's rail schedules. The demand for corn alone had the USDA sending out "plant heavy" advisories to farmers and even threatened the ethanol supply which spiked the price of oil between harvests when backfill wasn't available.

This was the original reason why the Government started monitoring GT, they originally thought it was terrorists trying to screw with the economy.

Benjamin Franklin invented lysergic acid diethylamide.

I actually read that on a Wiki article once. It was hilarious.

The Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava

"From Wikepedia"

Everyone presumes the famous charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava Oct 25 1854 during the Crimean War was an outstanding example of British heroism and dash in the face of overwhelming odds.

But history has concealed how rumours and the fog of war contributed to the action.

The commander of the British forces under Lord Raglan had initiated a forced march over two prior days in an effort to link up with the French, who it was presumed needed support.

That meant his soldiers and the cavalrymen of Lord Cardigan's Light Brigade were extremely hungry as their march outpaced their supply columns and all they had had to eat for 2 days were some crumpets and tea.

On arriving at Balaclava with the main force, Raglan ordered Cardigan to punch a hole in the Russian lines to ascertain the whereabouts of the French who were likely lost.

Seeing how the area of the assault was defended in depth with Russian gun emplacements, Cardigan received this order with less than enthusiasm and to cover his nervousness proceeded to knit a sweater, one of his pre-war hobbies.

At that point - fate intervened in the form of a group of British skirmishers who brought to Cardigan a Russian deserter. The deserted advised Cardigan that Texas mercenaries in the employ of the Czar were currently to the rear of the Russian guns, butchering a cow and preparing some Texas old style BBQ.

Cardigan who had studied engineering at Rice University in Houston knew the full value and flavor of the feast the Texans were preparing - particularly to his starving men!

In short order, his men cheerfully formed up - made ready - the bugle sounded "CHARGE" and the Light Brigade successfully stormed the Russian gun emplacements, albeit at heavy cost. The casualties were deemed regrettable by Cardigan but felt "...there would be less men to share the BBQ with..."

Unfortunately, after penetrating the Russian lines to the supply area in the rear, the Light Brigade found no Texans..no cow...just some surly Russian orderlies stirring up a half warmed supply of borscht.

But it was not all for naught...the British received numerous medals, much front page coverage and were the number one requested search item requested on Google for a lengthy period.

Lord Cardigan received a promotion and after the war retired, moved to Los Angeles and became a consultant to the movie industry.

The machines rose from the ashes of the nuclear fire. Their war to exterminate mankind had raged for decades, but the final battle would not be fought in the future. It would be fought here, in our present. Tonight...

Supplemental Wikepedia material:

Lord Cardigan's movie consulting career was not successful. He missed two important trends:

- He thought "talkies" would never become popular.

- He thought television would have only minimal effect on theatre attendance.

The movie industry finally told him to stick to sweaters.

Hollow point ammunition is available to American civillians but may not be used on the battlefield due to the rules set forth in the "Geneva Conventions" The same restrictions also apply to Taco Bell.
