    Crap.

    While during the 1980's, Bruce Springsteen released an unprecedented number of #1 chart topping albums, he never had a #1 hit during this decade of his career.

    Crap. Eddie Bauer may have been a mountain man, but he sold things from his first store in Seattle, WA.

    Fact. One of the reported occurances of triorchidism was reported in the Cook Islands*, which is, of course, considered part of Polynesia. Polyorchids do suffer an increased risk of testicular cancer, which can be fatal. Thus, the rare and deadly polyorchid does indeed grow in Polynesia.

    *Sozer, I. T; Kamberoglu, H; Yucebas, E. (1989, Nov) :
    Polyorchidism: bilateral double testis and unilateral testicular

    Ferris Bueller is correct for a +1. I live just across the river from DC and the monuments, and it a really amazing place to visit. I went on a school trip in the 6th grade (1988) to the memorial, and never in a million years thought I would end up living up here.

    It is a great work of art, its a shame nowadays that it takes so long for anything to be completed (lawyers are really the blame for all of this, as well as D1sposableher0), perfect example the WW2 Memorial, and the not even started 9/11 WTC memorial....its a sham, but I remember going to the memorial way back in the early 90's and seeing how magnificent it is and how it really is a beautiful work of art. If ferris' links make you want to find out more, check out the Vietnam Memorial that is in New Mexico (you will have to google it i don't recall the website) But its the largest Vietnam Veterans Memorial in the US I believe.

    So bamboo, i didn't get any points for my answer to your beer question?

    True. Vietnam Memorial Wall, designed by Maya Lin at age 21 while she was an undergraduate.

    I can provide more links backing the vistor count if necessary. It surpassed the Lincoln Memorial, which used to be the most visited memorial.
