Fact of the Day: Biblical Paper

Menelik II was Emperor of Ethiopia from 1889-1913, and became quite a hero for defending his lands from Italian invaders. He was said to have an odd habit though, apparently when he was feeling ill he would eat a few pages from the Bible.

  2. Nothing surprises me in regard to Ethiopia.
    A country in total disarray, turmoil, ethnic (tribal) problems, disrespect
    of women and the list goes on and on.
    One of the most backward countries in the World.
    Shocking place and no improvement in sight.
    A hot bed of terrorist training.
    Well done, Adam.
