Fake Facts Thread
so the idea, folks, is this:
you make up some facts and post them in this thread.
let's have some fun with making stuff up.
- all post should be not breach forum rules.
- let's not make it personal by targeting other users. i want it to be fun for all, not just the person posting.
Cycling - one of the most controversial races in cycling was the Berlin - Moscow race staged in early 1940. This was in celebration of the non aggression pact between the two countries with the german riders going from berlin - moscow - berlin and the russian riders going from moscow - berlin - moscow. However, the race ended inconclusively as neither the german nor soviet authorities could agree to who had actually won the race, both claiming their best rider was the winner. this is what happens when you have two finish lines, countries apart.
The Republic of Moqueria - The republic of Moqueria stands as the shortest known country in history, having been declared as an independent state on 14th June 1984 at 3:35pm. However unfortunately, the army of Spain was doing the bank collection that day in the town and the republic of Moqueria was vanquished by 3:38pm.
