Weird Fact of the Day 8.9.07
8/9/2007 5:19:36 AM
Weird Fact of the Day: The term "the whole 9 yards" came from WWII fighter pilots in the Pacific. When arming their airplanes on the ground, the .50 caliber machine gun ammo belts measured exactly 27 feet, before being loaded into the fuselage. If the pilots fired all their ammo at a target, it got "the whole 9 yards."

Hello Larry,

Thank you for sharing...

It is interesting where the origins from popular and
well known sayings come from and nothing to do
with Football either..

Have you had these Thunder and lightening displays
in your neck of the woods lately.  (The lightening is
very impressive to me)
We have needed the rain our grounds was cracking
and splitting open from want of rain.


Kind regards
Amanda
