WELCOME TO THE SITE!
This is a page made by me primarily to tell people that I've got one. It is not all that great because I'm still learning how to do this stuff. I feel like they need to show me how to do this stuff on Sesame Street. That is the place that I learned how to do the most important things in life. It taught me to look both ways before crossing the street. Because of that, I haven't died.

New Fact of the Month!!!

Why is north at the top of the map?
The ancient Greeks and Romans put the east at the top of their maps because that is the direction from which the sun rose. The early Christian and Moslem nations did too because it was believed that the Garden of Eden had been located in the east. North gradually moved to the top of the map near the beginning of the 14th century. This was because more and more armies, emissaries and traders were travelling north to Europe where there was a larger population mass.  
Email Me
Without emails from you, my site will become a rotting piece of meat on the internet that everyone forgets about until you realize just how much it stinks. I would like to know if any facts are wrong and I am always searching for more. Any suggestions in content/form are welcome.
A site of just facts would be too serious.
