Back to the list!
1) John Smith and Pocahontas were never in love. At the time of her saving his life, he would have been around the age of 29, and her 11. Pocahontas actually ended up marrying John Rolfe, converting to Christianity and changing her name to Lady Rebecca. She moved to Europe where she died when she was 20 years old of a lung infection.
|Please tell me you feel slightly awkward,|
looking at this 11-year old with the body of a 22-year-old.
|Yeah, I would choose this hot old guy over John Smith, too.|
Good choice, Pocahontas.
|Dank je wel, Dutch.|
5) Now to get away from American Colonial times and just to tell you something that will probably make you laugh... To take an oath, ancient Romans put a hand on their testicles. (Now this part isn't true, but it makes me laugh - where do you think the word testimony came from?!)
I'll be back!
