Here are some interesting facts.

Vatican

The vatican comes from the Latin word vaticanus which means, "The place of the SOURCERES."

(Interesting to see the fact they are called the place of the sourcerers and to see how they treated witches and sourceres).

Israel

Isis: Egyptian pagan god.

Ra: Egyptian sun god.

El: Common name for god in the area.

Israel?? IsisRaEl?
1) Whatever has contradictory attributes does not exist.
2) The Biblical God has contradictory attributes.
3) Therefore, the Biblical God does not exist

Um no.

The Vatican sits on the mons Vaticanus, a hill that was called Vaticanus by the Romans.

Israel is really Yisrael, he who fights with God.

Another fun fact about the Vatican: In 1992, there were 608 penal offenses in Vatican City, yet the population was only 455. That's 133 crimes per 100 people.

yeah, i'm sure they get lots of tourism..

and I wouldn't be surprised if "short-shorts" or 'PDA' are some kinds of crime.

7% of Americans don't know the first 9 words of the American anthem, but know the first 7 of the Canadian anthem.

99% of the solar systems mass is concentrated in the sun.

A cockroach can live several weeks with its head cut off.

A company in Taiwan makes dinnerware out of wheat, so you can eat your plate.

A cow produces 200 times more gas a day than a person.

More than ten people a year are killed by vending machines.

Hippo milk is pink.

A dairy cow can produce more milk when listening to music.

The North Atlantic gets 2.5 centimetres (1in) wider every year.

I know the first three of the Canadian anthem, all the first verse of the American (there are actually at least three verses we only ever sing the first)
99% of the solar systems mass is concentrated in the sun.

I think the same is true of an atom if you replace sun with nucleus
A cockroach can live several weeks with its head cut off.

knew that, it is also the only creature that can survive a nuclear holocaust (I know Mythbusters showed there were better candidates)

Sweet
A cow produces 200 times more gas a day than a person.

Exactly, which is why the Greenie vegans should be in favor of killing cows to reduce imitations.
More than ten people a year are killed by vending machines.

How?
Hippo milk is pink.

That seems pretty cool
A dairy cow can produce more milk when listening to music.

I wonder how they figured that out
The North Atlantic gets 2.5 centimetres (1in) wider every year.
I thought I had heard the opposite, the way they keep talking about California falling into the Ocean.

How?

I'd be willing to bet it's either stupid people shaking the vending machines to the point where they fall on top of themselves and crush them to death or vending machines are tired of being subservient to man, and are beginning to revolt slowly but surely.
