    The famous christian religious split of the 11th century was not caused by differences in doctrine as originally reported but was manufactured by Mr Chris Kringle to spread out his delivery schedule.

    The shapeshifting Reptilians and the Greys have decided to settle their differences on the basketball court. Check ESPN for schedule.

    The 20th century's leading expert on liquid precipitation was the Chief Meteorologist of the Soviet Institute of Natural and Earth Scientist, Dr. Prof. Rudolph Deminski. His knowledge of the topic was so universally admired, that it was immortalized in song... come on, you remember the song.... Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear....

    Swift, there is a surprise birthday party being held for you at your next door neighbor's house. No, not that one -- the other one. I know this defeats the purpose of a surprise party, but you need to get away from the computer and go now before you miss anything. Really, after that last post you need to get away from your computer. Please.
    So many bugs, so little time.

    It was actually Irish explorer Mark O'Polo who discovered China. His secretary got his name wrong when typing up his manuscript.

    The original 13th century typewriter of Mark O'Polo's secretary, Guiseppe McSilliputty, was recently sold at auction for over 12.5 million dollars.

    The Clothes Press was a short-lived radical anti-nudist newsletter started in 1967. It was printed on tie-dyed paper.

    The newsletter ran until 1977, when its offices and printing press were taken over by the Star Wars Gazette, which was printed on TIE-fighter paper.

    I believe the offices were converted in 2009 to a home for 93 disabled children and puppies as part of the series Really Extreme Home Makeover with Ty Pennington.

    The Captain America uniform was deemed to be authentic, as it was labeled "在中國".

    Ostriches have the ability to fly, they simply lack the motivation.
