I Learned it in AFCA 04/27/07 – 05/03/07

“It is an offence for a carcass to remain unburied in a field or other place to which dogs can gain access under the Dogs Act 1906.”

Scrub baseball is a way of playing baseball with no teams. The number of players is variable, and score is not kept, as the idea is “each against all”. Batting, pitching, and fielding are the same as in standard baseball; scrub is often used as practice for baseball, or a substitute when there aren’t enough players available.

Baby horses are foals. Colts are male foals (and male young horses who haven’t been gelded yet) and fillies are female young horses. All foals are either a colt or a filly, but a colt or filly may be a weanling (over four months old and weaned from suckling the mare), a yearling (between one and two years old) or a horse under age three or four (depending on breed registry and inclination of person making the distinction). Horses racing in the Kentucky Derby are primarily male colts of three years old. Occasionally a filly is entered (yay, Genuine Risk! Yay, Winning Colors!), and occasionally a gelding (of three years old) is entered.

The rules of the first baseball like game in the U.S. called “base or goal ball” were published in Boston (Robin Carver’s “The Book of Sports” in 1834), and were simply a copy of Clarke’s rules for rounders.

“Paying your dues to society takes on a whole new meaning in California. For $171 (£85) a day, prisoners can get cell upgrades that offer access to iPods, laptops, mobiles, better food and, the biggest selling point of all, isolation from violent inmates. One police department makes this fear of sexual predators its main sales pitch: “Bad things happen to good people.” ”

“Using a (signed) 64-bit value introduces a new wraparound date in about 290 billion years, on Sunday, December 4, 292,277,026,596. However, this is not widely regarded as a pressing issue.”

The pilot for “Law & Order,” titled “Everybody’s Favorite Bagman,” was actually the sixth episode aired.
