I didn't see the root word for 100.  I thought cleveland was calling me the bottom half of a centaur.  I'm profusely sorry.   :angel:
I wish I had thought of that... oops ;) "I kid... I kid."

Sure feels good to have reached Centurion level.  I knew I always had those leadership skills.   ;D  ::)  ;D
Well, centurions are still near the bottom of the food chain.

Ohio is listed as the 17th state in the U.S. but technically it’s number 47. Until August 7, 1953, congress forgot to vote on a resolution to admit Ohio to the union.

Wasn't the entire Northwest Ordinance admitted as one entity and States were carved out of that territory after the fact?

Does Congress' failure to vote make anything done in Ohio before 1953 null and void?

Your first point is correct.....as to your second....1953 they retroactively passed the resolution....so Ohio was still a state for all those years....

Ohio is high in the middle and round on both sides.
What in the world are you talking about? 
O HI O - Get it, "round on both sides" (the O's), and "high in the middle" (the HI)?

I'm not doubting your word, but....I'd really like to see the substantiation for this! It could make for great dinner conversation in my house!

I just found this out last week from a classmate who is from Ohio.  I was surprised.

Someone's going to have to post the Yahtzee rules somewhere... I've never played before.

I may be addicted to E-Yahtzee.

Clarification question: To qualify as a straight (either "large" - 5 - or "small" - 4), must the die be in actual order (i.e. 2,3,4,5,6), or can they be mixed up (i.e. 2,5,3,4,6)?

IIRC, they can be mixed up as in your latter example.
