    European Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles an hour.

    Ahhhhhhh Monty Python.

    Anyway, this category was (as you can tell) a bit of a joke but it is to let you know that we can customize and create just about any category.

    Jeff - Yeah, that too. :p

    Right now I have on my desk one complaint about chickens and a second complaint about pigs... :roll:

    And you guys wonder why I seem to spend so much time on Bulletin Boards? :cry:
