C'mon...Responsibly collected data? A respected resource? Leaving your own anecdotal experience out of the post? AND no profanity? I'm not sure that is an acceptable forum post. C'mon.

Fun fact:

Ears of corn *always* have even numbers of rows. The number of rows may vary, but it's always an even number.

Well, almost always. It is so rare to have an odd number that one has not been verified since 1949. Presumably more have occurred but gone unnoticed, since who counts the rows on their corn? But for those who care about such things, they cannot find one with an odd number, so it must be very rare.

Fun fact:

There are some fascinating cartoons that were made by Disney and Warner Bros during World War II as anti-Nazi propaganda. Contrary to popular belief, none of these have been "banned" (in the US anyway); rather, both WB and Disney have abandoned the copyrights so they are freely available on YouTube.

They are packed with what would today be unthinkable stereotypes of Germans and to a lesser extent (in volume, not degree) the Japanese. A bunch of sausage and sauerkraut-eating savages, or slant-eyed buck-teeth greenish skinned nutcases? That's how it was shown. The quasi-German is basically a bunch of words that English-speaking people recognize thrown together with a lot of mucus and shouting. Swastikas are ubiquitous throughout most of them. Depictions of Hitler (and occasionally Stalin) are common, as are shouts of "Sieg Heil!".

Some to look up:

The Ducktators (WB - 1942)

Herr Meets Hare (WB - 1945) (with Bugs Bunny playing both Hitler AND Stalin)

Der Fuehrers Face (Disney - 1942) (Donald Duck as Hitler) - this one won an Academy Award and is considered by many to be one of the best cartoons ever made.

Daffy the Commando (WB - 1943) - note a cartoon poster of a topless woman on the wall @ 1:35. Ends with Daffy clubbing Hitler on the head with a mallet.

This one deserves special treatment - The Spirit of '43 (Disney, 1943), which featured the debut of Donald's uncle Scrooge McDuck (although he is not named)

THIS cartoon is not as much about World War II as it was commissioned to lull people into accepting payroll withholding of their income taxes, beginning in 1943. The patriotic thing to do was to pay your taxes faithfully and since obviously you idiots can't do it right, your employer will.

Oh - and your taxes are so high "thanks to Hitler and Hirohito."

True story.
