Was really surprised at how many I know -- and how many I don't know. What in the world is ROYGBIV. Don't have speakers at work so I'll have to go home and listen to your site.

Mom, on the electromagnetic spectrum, it's the longest wavelenths to the shortest: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

Don't you hate science geeks? ;)

In case you want to ask for a beer in Saudi, you say, 'jib li birra'; but you won't get one. You will however have a most interesting experience by doing so.
Rather a large number of these apply to me as well. I was born a few hours out of LEO but have always seemed to fit that desciption better than my own sign, altho I do have the Virgoan ability to find fault, and even more, the Virgoan delight in each fault I find...

You are not 5'5. And you should really look into a fist fight, I think it will make the "Thug-Life Dynasty" more plausible.
