What about "dip, dip, dip my blue ship?" What is the correlation between it sailing in the ocean and someone being "It?" How does the ship's boyancy determine the evaluative process of selection?

The person not chosen to be "it" is "heavy"?

Comment: Please explain how an action captured on a video clip can be
false.
I am referring to President Barach Hussein Obama storming out of a
conference and kicking the door open.

Let's see: you heard this through Facebook and asked Snopes about it. Seems like rumor to me.

No, not true. Pluto is a planet - a minor planet.

Now that it's classified (which it was not before all this brouhaha - not as a planet nor as any other designation), it's a dwarf planet. (The term minor planet can still be used but it's deprecated and refers to more than just dwarf planets.)

Comment: A man I just met said that Muslims were forewarned about 911 and
did not go to work at WTC or Wall Street. I made several searches of this
and could find nothing. I don't believe it's true.

Perhaps the commenter had heard about the book by reporter Stephen Jiminez that states that the killing was not a hate crime at all, but a drug deal (meth) gone wrong.

Quote:
Jimenez’s “The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard,” out last month, challenges every cultural myth surrounding Shepard’s short life and unspeakable death. After some 13 years of digging, including interviews with more than 100 sources, including Shepard’s killers, Jimenez makes a radioactive suggestion: The grisly murder, 15 years ago this month, was no hate crime. Shepard’s tragic and untimely demise may not have been fueled by his sexual orientation, but by drugs. For Shepard had likely agreed to trade methamphetamines for sex. And it killed him.

Comment: I recently heard that China had landed a spacecraft on the moon,
but have heard nothing of this in the mainstream media outlets. Is it
true? One date I saw was December 14, 2013.
