That's a lotta bricks!

That's a lotta bricks!

  1. There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos
  2. Tipping in restaurants in Iceland is considered rude(!)
  3. Until the 19th century, blocks of tea were used as currency in Siberia
  4. A Boeing 747 airliner holds 57,285 gallons of fuel
  5. In St.Louis, Missouri, it’s illegal to drink beer out of a bucket whilst sitting on a curb

Oh just one more thing: if anyone asks where you got this stuff, please make something up and don’t say you found it here.  Thanks.
