  1. This is a fact-based, apolitical list of the United States Senate and its Elections - I will be filling this in backwards over time. There are three "classes" of Senators, each having elections every six years (assuming there are no early vacancies). Class 1 (33 Senators) last had an election in 2018, Class 2 (33 Senators) in 2020, and Class 3 (34 Senators) in 2016. The 115th U.S. Congress begins on Jan 3, 2021. If this list is ever completed, it will go backwards in time to 1789. Any candidate getting more than 10% of the vote is named. Any election with each opponent receiving less
  2. The Group of Six (G6) existed from 1975-1976, and included France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdon, and the United States. The Group of Seven (G7) first existed from 1976-1997, and added Canada. The Group of Eight (G8) existed from 1997-2014, and added (then kicked out) Russia. The Group of Seven (G7) has existed again since 2014.
  3. I just asked myself this question, and came up with a very logical, reasonable way to find the answer (don't worry, I'm not giving it away): "Landlocked and long," were my two alliterative criteria. I was just in Louisville, coming down from the southern tip of Indiana, and thought to myself, "Sure, why not Kentucky?" And I also knew that states east of the Mississippi River tend to be smaller (which can be both a blessing and a curse for having the most bordering states). It was really good reasoning, and it was wrong. If you'd like a hint before seeing the answer, mouse over the foll
  4. I mentioned in the "who ya drinkin' to" thread that I wanted to raise a glass to Abraham Lincoln on the 150th anniversary of his death, which is today. Which I have done, and which I do now: Here's to you, Mr. Lincoln. I also mentioned that Lincoln is the only U.S. president that I get emotional about. Which I do. He is the secular saint of our American history, the martyr who gave his life in service to the ideal of the American union and whose service ensured its survival. He is one of my very few heroes, maybe really my only one, besides Julia Child. Lincoln gave what I think was probably t
  5. Another in the continuing series of Wikipedia random article fun: The Pig War In 1859, an American farmer killed a Irishman's pig on San Juan Island creating a conflict between the US and the British Empire. I found this article to be interesting because of the confluence of George Pickett (of Pickett's Charge fame), Geoffrey Hornby (of Admiral of the Royal Navy fame), and Henry Martyn Robert (of Robert's Rules of Order fame). Also, I like the concept of a "bloodless war" and soldiers on opposite sides being friendly with each other.
  6. Here is a quick, easy way to memorize the 10 states bordering the Mississippi River, from North to South, in less than one minute. You will be *shocked* at how useful this seemingly innocuous bit of knowledge is. Bear in mind: This is 20% of all of the states in the USA, and you're about to have them memorized, North to South, in what is essentially the geographical midpoint of our country. Ready? Here goes: Mr. Wilson Is Inside Miss Kathkart's Twat All Morning Long That's it! That's all there is! If you were a Dennis The Menace fan, you will never forget thi
