  6. Finally, finally, I know one of your facts! I'm so excited because I kept waiting to know something but I haven't so far and I kind of started to feel like giant dumbass. LOL But I'm Italian, so I actually knew this one, YAY. I still wouldn't make it past day one on Jeopardy, but I feel a little better about myself now, LOL
