I didn’t know the movies have existed since 1775. That’s pretty remarkable

It is always interesting to see what has happened in the past.  Russia sure has had it in for the Ukraine for some time now.

Good morning, Dorie... well, I know all about the Russian Revolution on November 7th and could never forget that date for two reasons: first of all, it hugely impacted my own family (and my father) and secondly it's my brother's birthday.

I didn't know about the bridge that collapsed in a windstorm. That must have been quite strong wind!

The Tacoma Narrows bridge was also known as "galloping gertie". It had an engineering fault that led to it's collapse in a windstorm (it also became a textbook case for bridge engineers and now our bridges are safer because of it) Kat Palmiotti
