They're both monarchs! Elvis is The King, and Madonna is the Queen of Pop.
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

The Julian Calendar was inaccurate, which caused spring to start earlier (calandarically, of course) each year, and therefore also the easter celebrations moved to ever earlier dates. In order to create a more accurate calendar, Pope Gregory XIII conducted the reform named after him to establish a new calendar also named after him and which we still use today. To repair the damage of the old calendar and to make March 21 the day of the vernal equinox again, Octobre 4, the last day of the Julian calendar, was directly followed by Octobre 15, the first day of the Gregorian calendar. You, sir, are correct.

That is, in countries with catholic leaders. Most protestant countries did not accept this nwe calendar (becauseit was catholic) and retained the Julian calendar. It took about 200 years to get a corporate calendar in Europe alone, so in those, other dates were skipped. But officially, and by degree of God himself, blah blah blah, it were those days in Octobre. Enough nit-picking.

they sleep with one eye open.
In order to be able to breathe they have to be conscious, so they sleep only with one brain-side at a time. Half of the brain has to be awake. :mrgreen:

The tiny island of Run. It is an insignificant island in Indonesia, smaller than 1x3 kilometers. The only significance it holds is that it used to be the only place nutmeg grew, which is no longer the case.

No, we're not! A peace treaty was signed as recently as 1986, ending the Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years' War.

Has to be something with beer, but I am not sure what exactly. Probably not something as simple as "alcohol percentage", or is it?

I guess that's right. At least a relative who works at a brewery once told me that they use a scale for measurement of alcohol percentage. Not sure if it's called the "Plato Scale".
