General Douglas MacArthur, revered by the US public during World War II never set foot on the continental USA during the whole of World War II. It wasn't until after he was relieved of his command of UN forces in 1951 during the Korea War by President Truman that he set foot on the continental US again and this was the first time since 1937.

With the women's marathon record being broken the other day, did you know that the women's outdoor individual track records from 100m to 800m inclusive (hurdles excluded) are all over 30 years old! They were all set in the 1980s.

The men's mile record has not been broken this century. It was set in 1999 by Hicham El Guerrouj who also has the metric mile (1500m) record and that was set in 1998. That was only the second time that the mile record has been broken since 1985.

Remember when Ovett and Coe kept exchanging who held the mile record over a short period of time?

Did you know that, were you to place all of Nigel Farage's speeches one on top of one-another, you'd eventually have a speech travelling faster-than-light...? But, you wouldn't violate relativity, as Mr Farage's speeches contain no information...⚛️

And did you know that whatever party wins the election, we will get a phenomenon called a black hole, it's also called "the treasury"...

Theresa May will be the first ex PM to stand at a general election since Ted Heath in 1997.

Summer Sun is poised, ready to start the 31st Dec weather discussion thread, only minutes away!

And a year later still doing it. They have got to be an insomniac, I can't see how anyone can post at the same time every night for just over two years.
