Facts are cool! We need more facts! And only from Kat

Bats are the only mammal that can fly

I know that's true, I just saw a documentary about it!

Australia is the only country that is also a continent.

I thought that Oceania was the actual name of the continent, and that New Zealand was part of it, unlike Australia, which is only the largest part of the continent, but not the name of the continent.

Nah, just one: "Bats are the only mammal that can fly."

You know of these things called airplanes right? It's true. It's a really neat system. You go to a building, and they fly you to another building somewhere else.

"Bats are the only mammal that can fly" implies "Bats are the only mammal that can fly in natural conditions." Natural conditions meaning what I want it to mean, so you can't argue with that.

What about the Flying Squirrel? I suppose it doesn't actually fly, but instead glides. So never mind.
But bats are just freaky man!!

Not really. Last summer we had a few nights where a bat would find itself in our home, and we'd have to shoo him out. Hear some weird squeaking noise, stumble upstairs, creep towards the light... turn it on... and there was a bat, on the floor or on the wall, scampering about.

Our 'attic' (a 1-foot tall space for insulation) is full of hundreds of bats, and you can see them fly out when it gets dark.

Those furry little friends that sleep in our grand parents' potato cellar are really cute.

Thanks for asking MTG, but I do not *search* for any of the facts, they are sent to me, from secret government organizations, from around the world.

And Merlin?? Maybe in the U.S of A. an airplane is a mammal, but not here. I am surprised you didn't mention wooden teeth or something.

Check your geography Phoenix, although I do know you are very smart.

Dukie, always to the rescue.

I didn't say an airplane was a mammal. Generally, you get into an airplane first (though I don't know how Canadians do it - Wheelwell?).

Magicman: I am quite disappointed this time as well. Perhaps you try? (That wasn't meant to sound threatening).

We canadians don't go on planes. We either must buy seats for each dog or else leave the sled team behind.

Wait, Ketchup is made from tomatos though, and they are berries. They aren't a vegtable at all. The only thing unique about katchup icecreme is that its the flavor of a condiment.

Another unique occurence is (sort of) is that Joe is the only chaacter to speak in consistantly coherent sentences.

A great parodie of all the poorly animated, leet filled, plottless, or otherwise lame flash movies:
The ArfenHouse series:

Arfenhouse teh Movie
http://www.disasterlabs.com/index.php?sec=arfen

Arfenhouse teh movie too
http://www.disasterlabs.com/index.php?sec=arfen2

Originally, the series itself is meant to be a parody. Back when it was an OHRRPGCE series, it served the purpose of making fun of really bad RPG games while at the same time making spoofs off of things that the general public have seen. When it was converted into flash, things kinda changed--there was more freedom with what can be done in the movies. With this we could go nuts with just about everything that couldn't have been pulled off before.

Either way, if you're new to the series, it's generally about Housemaster, the piece of bread hero that lives in Arfenhouse with all of his friends in a horrifying world where nearly everything is poorly made and everyone's a moron. Meanwhile, Joseph, an assassin that is an 'immigrant' to the world, tries to cope with his doomed existence in this nightmarish place.

Bats are freaky!! I mean, they fly around the woods by my house and prey on the little village children.

Wrong. Tomatoes are vegetables. Science says that tomatoes can be berries and fruits: botanically speaking, fruits are anything that is the seed or bears the seed of a plant. Now, of course this definition has a drawback. If this was true, it would also mean that cucumbers, bean pods, squash, melons, peppers, and even nuts, would also be fruits.

Culinary artists (and even the grocery store) have to say that they are vegetables (which aren't naturally sweet), and I'm more inclined to believe them because they're the ones that feed the scientists.

A tomato is a vegetable for three reasons:
1) The plant is a non-woody annual.
2) It is consumed with the main meal and not individually.
3) It was classified as a vegetable in 1893 by the US Supreme court.

Yes, the tomato is legally a vegetable.

Trivial Pursuit (similar to this board) says tomatoes are fruits.

So there.

Daniel, there are clowns. 
Tomatoes are what you make of them.

I'd say tomatoes are non-lethal projectile weapons.

Any fool can use a computer. Many do. 
And you can use rotten ones (to throw) when you don't like a show/performance.
