I vote crap aswell

V V V V V SPOILER V V V V V

Evel Retired after his failed (due to technical difficulties) jump over Snake River. However, he did do one more jump after that, got injured, and REALLY quit. I can't quite remember the name of the town, but I think it was in America, not England.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ END SPOILER ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Correct Answer: CRAP

On May 31, 1975, at Wembley Stadium, Evel Knievel successfully jumped over 13 double tier buses but crashed his motorcycle upon landing, breaking his pelvis. Assisted by handlers, he staggered to the microphone and announced that he would never jump again. Yet, less than 5 months later, Knievel successully jumped 14 Greyhound buses at King's Island, Ohio. His last big stunt came a year later when he jumped a shark tank at the Chicago Amphitheater. Knievel crashed, broke both arms and suffered a concussion. :P

For some reason my subconscious scrabbled together 'fact' when I read that. So that's what I'll vote...

I don't know why, but when I read "Iowa," I thought it was a Japanese island.

The movie that bank robber John Dillinger had just seen before he was gunned down in front of Chicago's Biograph Theater on July 22, 1934, was Frank Capra's It Happened One Night.

Maybe I'm an idiot, but I never heard of him. That seems to suggest that it's true to me. Stranger coincidences have happened.

Correct Answer: CRAP

It was a Clark Gable movie, but it was a gangster film called Manhattan Melodrama. He was set up by Anna Sage, the madam of a brothel who was facing deportation and thought the tip would get her off. Dillinger was shot three times and Anna ended up being sent back to Romania.

It'd be absolutely hilarious if it were true. I'm gonna vote true just because I'm hopeful.

Correct Answer: FACT

The idea was proposed by Peter Postleb, head of the Clean Frankfurt campaign in Feb. 2003. The suggested fine was 150 euros. His reasoning: If the owners know their dog can get them rumbled, they might think twice about it.

crap.  what do you define as masonry?

is it clay?  then the original great wall of china is larger.

is it stone?  great pyramids.

I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

I think the masonry in the question refers to cement or brick. It's not specific really.
