“Careful which country you punch someone……Better Name for an Earth Pig..…&… Curse you British Library”

 When you’re on a plane, you’re under the laws of the country where the plane is registered, not where you take off from.  So if you punch someone on an Air Canada flight that took off in the U.S., you’ll face charges in Canada.

The word “aardvark” comes from the word “erdvark” in Afrikaans, which means “earth pig.”

The Library of Congress is only the second biggest library in the world.  It has about 168 million items in its catalog . . . the British Library in London has 170 to 200 million.
