the comment about baked potatoes... they still are a legitimate fast foods in parts of the UK. Especially Nottingham. you can't walk 100m without hitting a potato cart.

Anyone else see the last pic and get flashbacks of Michael Clarke Duncan in the Green Mile?

@drawman61 does this REALLY have to be about 'My country is older/better than yours? Everywhere has the exact same amount of history.. we have just been writing it down longer... and however much longer we have been writing it down the box camera was invented in 1827. Ain't no good pics before then...

'Prison Garb 1924. Belva Annan murderess whose trial records became the musical "Chicago."'

'Belva Annan' is not the correct name?

It's Belva Gaertner and Beulah Annan.

@5cats, I hope I can find an equivalent site for the UK. What with us having hundreds and hundreds of years more history to look back on.

@adcro, I just knew someone was going to make that elementary mistake.

Also, Helen Keller, how could she have had any concept of who or what a Charlie Chaplin is?

@ Adcro: Not so fast, Mr. Spelling Police. *Tidbit* is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada, *titbit* the preferred spelling everywhere else. I-A-B being an American website, Kitteh got it right. So there. =^.^=

The word is "titbits", not "tidbits".

WIsh I could go back and change most of my 4 ratings, because this one blows them all away.

That San Francisco earthquake photo was mesmerizing. A little bit of trivia, Lucille Ball got her first role in The Three Stooges - Three Little Pigskins.
