    quote:The name of all the continents end with the same letter that They start with.
    In English, yes. Not so in French, Dutch, German ... need I go on?


    quote:TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.
    On a QWERTY keyboard: yes, on AZERTY: no.

    Repeating an assumption does not make it a fact (#31 in the second list).<br /><br />Nice to see there are people who actually enjoy Reader's Digest [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-2.gif' alt=':D' />].<br /><br />About #33: the equivalent in Dutch used to be "nieuws" until a light-verse poet came up with a rhyme where a fish mumbled, for which we have the expression "binnensmonds", literally: inside the mouth, so he came up with "binnenskieuws": inside the gills --- and that does rhyme with "nieuws". The other famous one in Dutch was "herfst" (autumn) but that was cracked already many years ago ...<br /><br />EDIT:<br />The last remaining one that I know of in Dutch is "twaalf" (twelve).

    I visited that Ice Hotel in Sweden last winter. Very cool! (no pun intended.) I highly recommend it. You can fly to Luleå, then travel to Kiruna, and then take a bus to Jukkasjärvi. Seehttp://www.icehotel.com/. Better go in the winter, though, or else it's a puddle.

    I have seen a documentation on TV about such hotels. Must be really something special. Thanks for the link!
