    The name for Oz in the "Wizard of Oz" was thought up when the creator, Frank Baum, looked at his filing cabinet and saw A-N, and O-Z; hence the name "OZ".

    what I like about this site is if someone needs some info someone else will nearly always find an answer

    Rogering: an act of sexual intercourse. Origin mid 1500s. Initial meaning of the name Roger, which is 'Famous Spear', somehow mutated to a slang meaning

    • The elephant brain weights roughly 6,000 grams. The cat brain weighs about 30 grams. (And despite these weird but true facts, you may find that the average cat is actually more intelligent than the average elephant).
