I have just found out, at the age of 38, that Gibraltar is actually a peninsula. For the last 30 years (approximately) I had the idea that Gibraltar was a rocky island in between Europe and Africa.

You, of course, are probably reading this and going "pfhh! This guy has no idea", which is true.

But for me, this is amazing - about as amazing as the realisation I had almost 12 months ago that Nick Nolte and Gary Busey were actually two different people.

I'm 51 and I just found out Australia is a continent! All this time I thought it was an island.

Mr. Beamer is kidding, in case you can't tell.

I've even been to Gib. Was like visiting Portsmouth the harbour town in England. Thick city walls. Very 18th into 19th century. The aircraft land on a runway across that narrow isthmus. Stayed in a hotel on the beach near the airport. See no one on Friday but a full beach on Saturday. The east side of the rock is one big catchment - faced with concrete. The baboons were fun - stay well clear I decided. Hired a NSU Prinz something like a Fiat 600 and drove into Spain for a few very hot days. Stayed at this beach hotel immediately south of Granada. Tapas at the little shack of a bar on the beach and the hotel kept your bottle of wine on the sideboard ready for next dinner.

The links to Images of Bussey and Nolte appear to be the same person. The wiki Bussey is obviously someone different.

When was film star James Stewart not James Stewart? Why when he was film star Stewart Granger!

Many LOLz re: Nick Nolte and Gary Busey.

The easiest way for me to tell Nolte and Busey apart (aside from obvious acting skill) is this sketch

"You'll know it when a Juicey Busey hits ya between the eyes!"
