Random Thursday

It's the last Thursday of the month, so it means it's the last month for venturing further with That's a Fact Jack: A Collection of Utterly Useless Information [Updated] by Harry Bright and Jakob Anser! Next month I'll go back to the Disney book!

"The state motto of Alaska is 'North to the future.' Alaska's Point Barrow is the northernmost point in the United States."

"Alaska contains the easternmost (Pochnoi Point on Semisopochnoi Island in the Aleutians) and the westernmost (Amatignak Island in the Aleutians) points in the United States."

Alaska is pretty point worthy!

"Oskar Stohr and Jack Yufe were identical twins born in 1933and separated shortly after birth. Oskar was raised as a Catholic and became a Nazi; Jack was raised as a Jew. When they reunited many years after World War II, they had little in common aside from the urge to fake sneezes during uncomfortable silences."

That's regretfully sad, yet a little funny with that last bit!

"Although the word 'ghetto' today connotes impoverished urban centers, it originally pertained to quarters where Jews were forced to live irrespective of social class. In Venice in the early 1500s, Jews were housed on an island with an iron foundry. The Italian world for foundry is gheto."

And now we're back to sad.

  1. One of my most favorite vacations was my Alaskan cruise. It is a point worthy and beautiful state. The twin story is so sad.
