    Whaling ships were actually just children's model frigates. The children pushed their minature ships out to sea and whales harpooned themselves and floated to shore.


    When a half decent artist paints a picture, international borders move.


    Chariot riders have special armor and swords.They are shiny and sharp looking, but arent made of actual metals, and dont work unless they are on their chariot.

    329.There's no such thing as a fad; all fashion styles take hundreds or thousands of years to change. When they do change, it's extremely abrupt and dramatic.

    330. Your fashion style is determined by your job; everyone else with your job also wears the same clothes.

    331. Hammers all look like mallets. Therefore, you never took that nail out of the deck. It was all a figment of your imagination!
