Neat. For some reason I kept thinking it was golf-related, even though I knew that was PGA. And yeah, I learned phonetic alphabet a while back when I was in the Civil Air Patrol.

Though Bob Kane is officially credited for the creation of Batman, many believe the artist Bill Finger created almost everything associated with the early incarnation of the character. From costume designs to story lines.

The western actor Audie Murphy was one of the most decorated soldiers of WW2.

In the early 15th century there were actually 3 Popes alive and in power at the same time. They all tried to excommunicate each other.

The word "Ye" as in "Ye olde book store" is not a real word. The Y in the word was used as a substitute for the letter "Thorn", pronounced "th" and looked somewhat like "Ω" laying on its side. So "Ye olde book store" is really supposed to be "The olde book store".
