considering it's more of a devkit/game hybrid than an actual game, wouldn't that vary depending on what the current mini-game selection is?

We're getting a new letter in German! :mrgreen:

---

It's the upper case ß and will look like this ẞ.

Previously ß was changed into ss when the word is written in caps. This was a problem in identification document and other official documents where the names are usually written in caps. If you saw the name OSSNER you didn't know if the person's name was Ossner or Oßner, in future OẞNER will be written in the documents.

For information, the three different s (s, ss, ß) change the preceding vowel - ss makes it a short sound, ß makes it long, and s is in between.

The original Transformers line was actually an adaptation of two different Japanese toy lines. One was Diaclone, which was the source of characters such as Optimus Prime, Starscream, and Wheeljack, and Micro Change, which was the source of guys like Megatron, Bumblebee, and Soundwave.

I don't call it worthless either, just the information is rather useless - at least for most of you. xD

The richest person to ever live (at least since we could reasonably compare wealth) was Musa I of Mali, who lived around the 14th century and had the equivalent of US$400,000,000,000, making him 4-5 times as rich as Jeff Bezos.

There is a kind of perfume called "Funeral Home". It smells of white flowers, mahogany and oriental rugs.

DC comics has their own group of anthropomorphic super heroes (much like Marvel's Spider Ham) called The Zoo Crew.

and not a consistent art style between em it seems. look at the eyes, no two are drawn in the same style despite the fact that that should be the easiest part of the face to keep consistent.

Yaknow I never looked until you said something. XP

How long has it been since they've done anything with them?

EDIT: Point Nemo is the part of the ocean furthest from land. It has over 200 spacecrafts crashed into it, due to being targeted for disposal there for minimum risk of harming people.

This was allegedly the Nintendo DS development kit that Alpha Dream used when making Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time. They had no official development kit to use, as Nintendo was still in the process of designing the system.
Source, but it's in Japanese.

Apparently they had only heard that the DS would have two screens and four buttons, so they built that to work with :lol:

There's a lookout in Tasmania (I think you Americans call them overlooks) called the Look In Lookout.

"Prime Minister of Australia" isn't a real job.

Yeah, you read that right. The role of Prime Minister is never mentioned in the Australian Constitution. That means that technically and legally speaking the job of "Prime Minister of Australia" doesn't exist. We literally only have a Prime Minister by convention because we copied it from England when we became a country.


On a related note, the shortest time anyone served as Prime Minister of Australia was just eight days when Frank Forde, who had been sworn in as Prime Minister after his predecessor died suddenly, lost the subsequent election.
