    The Epitaph of Seikilos, the oldest known song for which we possess both the melody and lyrics, was found as a stele near a railway in Adyn. After coming into possession of the building firm's director, it had its final line filed off so that it could make a stable stand for his wife's flower pots.

    The flag of Hawaii deliberately evokes the American, British, Russian and French flags because King Kamehameha wanted the warring Western nations to feel safe when trading in his ports.

    I think that falls under "opinion" rather than fact. Perhaps you could elaborate, if only in PM form?

    Yeah. For several weekly episodes, they merely had another voice actor stand in with anonymous groans.

    This looks like a job for... An intern!

    The real name of David Tennant, who will be voicing Scrooge McDuck in the upcoming Ducktales reboot, is David MacDonald.

    Scrooge claims his money bin contains "3 cubic acres" of gold. Assuming that "cubic acre" means "a cube with a side length equal to the side length of an acre", then that means his money bin contains 772,321 cubic metres of gold. The total amount of gold ever mined is estimated at 8,187 cubic metres.
