These two go way back. But that's for you, Glenn and Dave to find out. Hippo fact. They're an introduced species in Colombia and the USA. Pablo Escobar is responsible for introducing them to Colombia. The Wikipedia article about that is a pretty interesting read. Soup-only facts don't have so many murderous drug dealers. For example; Soups are classified into two groups, clear soups and thick soups, or, Americans eat mo...

The Great Wall is over 21,000 kms long. Sticky rice is also called glutenous rice, but contains no gluten (much like the Great Wall). The literal translation of the Chinese name for the Great Wall is The Long Wall. If you store cooked sticky rice it will get sticker over time. And you can freeze it for up to 2 months.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
