You cannot walk a giraffe on a leash in Florida.
You cannot name a pig Napoleon in France

Virgina Woolf wrote all her books standing.
Good lot of those disprovable on Snopes.
7 Continents and 5 oceans according to my schooling. Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Antartica and Oceania (Australasia as it was called 15 years ago).
The speaker of the house of commons in the English parliament can and does speak. He does not, however, join in politcal debate.

Some crazy laws from my home state of Oregon
Dishes must drip dry.
It is illegal to whisper “dirty” things in your lover’s ear during sex.
Ice cream may not be eaten on Sundays.
It is illegal to buy or sell marijuana, but it is legal to smoke it on your own property.
Canned corn is not to be used as bait for fishing.
It’s illegal to walk down a sidewalk and knock a snakes head off with your cane.
You cannot eat a doughnut and walk backwards on a city street.
For a moment I though I live on a different planet. Oceania is a continent? What's next? Canada?
"A continent is one of several large landmasses on Earth"
Also some may say there is no Europe and Asia, there is Eurasia.
Australia is a continent (landmass), and, at the same time name of the country.
Oceania is considered part of the Australia (again Landmass, not country), cause from geology point of view they lay on same Indo-Australian Plate (tectonic plate), at least most part of it.
Did you know that if you close your eyes, stick your tongue out of your mouth and pretend to shake invisible salt on your tongue, you'll actually be able to taste salt?
Australia. (Both a continent and a country)
Also, your spelling is horrific.

In 1848, there was a railroad construction worker by the name of Phineas Gage. He was working to demolish part of a mountain so that they could run a rail through it. Now normally, what you'd do, is drill a hole, pack some blasting powder inside, put in sand to dampen the impact, then use an iron rod to pack it down. One day, Phineas was distracted and he forgot to put in the sand to dampen the impact from the rod. The impact created a spark, igniting the powder, launching the iron rod 80 feet. Also, through Phineas Gage's head.
3 minutes later, Phineas regained consciousness, began talking to people, walked to a cart, sat up for the 3/4 mile trip back to his house, waited there for a doctor, and then spoke with the doctor about the large hole through his head. The doctor wrote, "I did not believe Mr. Gage's statement at the time, but thought he was deceived. Mr. Gage persisted in saying that the rod went through his head. Mr. Gage got up and vomited. The effort of the vomiting pushed out about half a teacup-full of brain, which fell on the floor."
Phineas was reported as saying "I hope I am not much hurt." While falling in and out of comas for about a month, his family was assured that there was no possible way he would live. Two months later, he was perfectly fine, apart from some behavioral issues. Years later, his behavioral problems subsided, he became member of a traveling circus and then a long-distance stage coach driver in Chile (Where people did not know he was Phineas Gage), until late on-set Epilepsy set in and he died.
Still, 12 years of life after having a yard-long rod of iron pass through your skull is pretty damn lucky. And lastly, a photo of Gage and an image of where the rod passed through.
Eisenhower's mother made him wear dresses until he was 7.
We are WARRIORS man! If we can't make it bleed, we will sure as hell dent the f%^ck out of it!
