Cows drink half of American soda! Really! Yep. The history channel is filled with cool facts like that one.

The stomach of cows is designed to process grass, not grain. That is why half of all the soda produced in America is given to cows for indigestion.

I was watching Cattle Ranches on the History Channel earlier.
Wow. The ending wasn't as good as the beginning, but it was interesting(to super geeks like me anyway).

Reply | Edit | Del Re: Cows drink half of American soda! Really! So, we have fizzy cows???!! Silva having images of cows full of air and floating off into the sky like baloons.

If grain gives cows indigestion then why don't you crazy americans feed them grass?

There's never anything good on the history channel here, just rubbish like super criminals of the 20th century.

Does anyone know what the big statue made of bronze, that isone of the 7 wonders of the world is? Cos I saw a program that told how it was constructed but I must have got muddled up cos I told JTG it was the coluusos of Rhodes, and he said it couldn't be. *confused* Anyway it was made where it stood, by piling ever higher piles of sand around it for the workers to stand on. I want a better memory, sigh.

Do cows listen to moosic?

Reply | Edit | Del Soda cow fizzy! Soda cow fizzy! If we fed them grass, then who would eat all the grain? Honestly now... Besides, you don't want cows putting the lawn mower people out of business do you?

The Colossus of Rhodes existed. An earthquake knocked it over, and part of it fell safely into the ocean to be recovered later on.

The part that fell on the land laid there for a long time, then this guy went and salvaged all the bronze for scrap later on.

No. Its called the Collosus of Rhodes. Click on the link I gave to read more about it.

QUOTE

    From its building to its destruction lies a time span of merely 56 years. Yet the colossus earned a place in the famous list of Wonders. "But even lying on the ground, it is a marvel", said Pliny the Elder. The Colossus of Rhodes was not only a gigantic statue. It was rather a symbol of unity of the people who inhabited that beautiful Mediterranean island -- Rhodes.


QUOTE

    www.m-w.com
    Main Entry: co·los·sus
    Pronunciation: k&-'lä-s&s
    Etymology: Latin, from Greek kolossos
    1 : a statue of gigantic size and proportions



Its called the collossus because of its enormous size. Collossus is not the name of a person, god, or anything.
--- --- --- - -- ---- -- ---

....the previous was absolute fact. The following is total nonsense I just made up.....
"Oh great giant statue, we sacrifice these cattles to your glory."
Statue comes to life, looks down, and ask, "Why are they fizzy? I don't want any fizzy cows."
"Well, they drunk a lot of soda to deal with indigestion. You see, we..."
"I do not take fizzy cows as an offering! And whats with all these raw animals for sacrifices anyway? Go get me some fried chicken or a pizza for once."
"Look, we built you, we used our magic powers to make you real, and we gave you a crouch than any man would be very proud of. Now, you could..."
"Hey! I don't need this nonsense. I'm a bronze giant, after all. Now take away those fizzy cows, and bring me a bronze giant woman, or I'm leaving."
"You can't leave. We wouldn't let you."
"Wanna bet?"
He tries to walk away, but his feet are welded to the ground. Eventually he breaks his leg and falls over.
The people leave him their fizzy cows and run off. After snacking on a few cows, he dies of indigestion. Apparently they weren't fizzy enough.

Those bloody, no good wankers, Americans... Lot of wackos they are... I'd never go to America, personally. They're too concerned with Celebrities, fashion, and stuff like that. They never take any time to stop and think for a moment, it's chaotic if you ask me. They're like wild animals.

You're mixing up the synonym with the antonym.

Its not entirely dead. People still come here daily it seems.

We are just all busy with other things.

The number of hours I spend each day working on my game, and doing creative writing, leaves little time for anything else.

Also, forums always have their down periods, where nothing seems to happen, and then after a time, they come back as active as before. I found this old post just now that represents that more or less.

Yep. This place is almost as dead as my forum.

The cold weather slows down people's reflexes. They think slower, and are less active.

People in Canada are more accustomed to the cold, which is why more of the post in the winter are done by Canadians. We Americans are still polluting the world as quickly as we can to cause global warming, thus eliminating this problem all together, and preventing another ice age.
