Here's a quick version of the Mona Lisa story:

I was reading about it just last night actually. The thief, an Italian named Vincent Peruggia, was hired as a handyman a month or so before the robbery. Now The best part is that he basically walked out with it. He took it from the wall during the night where there were only about 150 guards in the museum of nearly 400 rooms. He hid it under his cloak and walked to the back door, which was locked. So he pulled the doorknob off. It was still locked.

A helpful plummer walked by and the thief, with the stolen painting under his coat, complained to the plummer that the doorknob had been stolen. The plummer smilingly opened the door for him and they parted ways. No one noticed that the painting was missing for almost 24 hours since paintings were often taken down to be dusted or cleaned.

This theft is actually what made the Mona Lisa the most recognizable painting in the world, appearing on every newspaper in Europe. The painting was recovered shortly after because Vincent, being the patriot that he was, felt that the masterpiece belonged in his home, the painting's native Italy. Instead of being hailed a national hero, he was reprimanded and the painting was returned. However, his nationalism earned him a reduced sentence.

The funny thing about the rabbit lady, she actually jammed them inside her vagina.
Eventually she got busted, because the king took her under observation, and she got imprisoned for fraud.

The top of the comp says "15 Random Facts" but I only counted 10.

I don't appreciate being deprived of my other 5 random facts.

If you fall for four seconds, you're going to speed up for that whole time. I'm willing to bet that this will get your speed up to something quite close to terminal velocity (the fastest speed you can actually fall) which is around 128 miles per hour if I'm not mistaken.

Now I'm sure you've felt the force of a water gun before, and that's probably not travelling much more than 14 or 15 miles an hour. Imagine hitting water at 8 times that speed.

Friend found a "dead" possum in our backyard, pointed it out and was about to pick it up by the tail to throw it away for us... We almost let him grab it, not cuz we were being mean, it just took a moment for the fact about possums to pop into our little heads.
Yelled at him to "Wait!" and walked away for a few minutes. Looked back over there and the ******* thing was gone...
That's my only possum story.

I'm from Staten Island and I'm pretty sure maybe about 1% of the people here know that. I will admit most of us are really stupid and fit the Jersey Shore stereotype. It sucks. But at the same time it's great to be surrounded by idiots.
