    The bullwhip is the first man-made device to break the sound barrier (the crack you hear is actually a small sonic boom).

    Elvis Presley's hip wiggling started out as stage fright. According to Carl Perkins, "Elvis was so nervous his legs would shake. One day he did it, and the crowd went wild. He asked guitarist Scotty Moore, 'What did I do?' and Moore replied, 'I don't know but do it again!' "

    Hehe, Gonzo. By the way, anyone know what the heck is Gonzo from the Muppets? I've seen the Muppets in Space movie, but that really didn't explain much if I remember correctly, I think they ended it off leaving us still guessing but I could be wrong.

    Gonzo is a ""creature of indeterminate provenance." And you are correct- they leave us guessing.

    During the reign of the Roman emperor Nero, sausages were associated with the Lupercalia festival. The early Catholic Church outlawed the Lupercalia Festival and made eating sausage a sin. For this reason, the Roman emperor Constantine banned the eating of sausages.
