Will Rogers Will Rogers was a cowboy that did rope tricks. He was loved by the crowds that watched him. “Onto the stage ambled a friendly-faced, tousled-haired man wearing a cowboy getup and carrying a collection of lassos in his hand. He smiled at the audience, then threw out one of the ropes, twirling it in a circle in preparation for one of the complicated rope tricks he was hired to perform. But as he went into the trick, he miscalculated the size of the small stage, and the rope whacked int

The Fall of the Smurfs I had hated Smurfs for the longest time. Their little blue forms annoyed me so, and their high-pitched voices made me want to smash the TV. So when I decided that I was going to take over their little village and make the Smurfs pay for what they had d one, I was going to go prepared. I bought an RV and outfitted it specially for the invasion. I anticipated being gone for several months, so the RV was well stocked with food and other supplies. As my main mission was to ta

First, that it was to guard the San Francisco bay area from enemy ships against a foreign invasion, and second, to hold hostage prisoners of war or POW's as they were called. In this report, I'll show you how this fortress came to be a federal pri
