    Did you witness him cooking an MC like a pound of bacon? And did he indeed glow if one turned out the lights?

    No, but I remember him always pestering girls, and they really found him annoying. "Go away Robbie" was something he seemed to hear a lot. Robbie Van Winkle, what a name.
    Assuming my memory is correct after all these years.

    ...and personally, I've never seen anything burning like a red-coat carpet - or even a 'rectal Dolphin' as a friend of mine once misheard.

    A bit of family folklore: An uncle of mine was a singer in a local doo-wop group in NY back when that was popular. They were set the next day to record this song but their lead singer didn't show up for whatever reason. The song went to the Tokens and thus is history.

    About Lions sleeping habbits: While tigers only live in Asia, India actually also have a colony of lions. They may actually sleep in the woods. Feel free to investigate.

    "20,000 people going every day" (dont fear the reaper). They admitted they just picked a number out of thin air

    Not only that, but Kilimanjaro is over twice the height of Olympus. Unless they were referencing Olympus Mons, which is on Mars.

    Ok this is my kind of thread! The Ballad of Thunder Road was set in "the first of April 1954" and the movie was set in 1957 and made in 58. The a actual crash did happen in 1954 though. Robert Johnson never owned a Terraplane. Peetie Wheatstraw didn't commit suicide. Godzilla never picked up a bus and threw it back down. Also in Robert Johnson's "From Four Until Late" it says "From Memphis to Norfolk is a 36 hours ride his average speed would have only been slightly over 20 miles per hour.

    Though to be fair ...most people labor under the misconception that Africa is indeed completely covered in jungle... and therefore a Lion sleeping anywhere in Africa would have to bed down in that said jungle...

    then the question might arise whether the jungle at night is actually quiet?... I mean a single cricket can be annoyingly loud at times....:lol:

    If it's related to the song "Gimme Shelter" that would be burns like a red coal carpet.

    Ooh, see the fire is sweepin’

    Our very street today

    Burns like a red coal carpet

    Mad bull lost its way

    I thought a red coal carpet was something from the '70's that they tore out on the remodeling shows on HGTV.
